Review from Rock Fiend International

From Rock Fiend International

2003 Demo
(Self Released)
Rating: 3.5

 Few things frustrate me more than great songs not given the treatment they deserve. And the first song on this cd, "Taken Under" is indeed a great song. The problem is that I have a hard time listening to it on this demo because I'm torn between taking simple pleasure in how good the song is and being frustrated by what the song isn't. What it is is a fantastically catchy and infectious Goth-Rock song which unfortunately sounds as though it was recorded on a cheap boombox at the bottom of a swamp. OK, I realize the word, "demo" is printed prominently on the cover and have taken that into consideration. The fact of the matter is this is the kind of song that would benefit greatly from some bombastic over-production. The other songs on the CD "I...Vampire" and "Wolfshead" are pretty straight forward, run-of-the-mill Goth-tinged Horror Rock. That kind of stuff generally sounds OK when recorded on substandard equipment. Obviously, any song can benefit from better production but there's really no point in putting a flea market velvet Elvis painting in a gold-encrusted frame. There's also a cover of "She" on here in case there's anybody out there who hasn't heard enough Misfits covers.
