I really like the new song a lot and I’m looking very forward to their new album. I’ll be picking it up for sure.
Really digging the new song. Definitely gonna get the new album.
I finally picked up ‘Reign of Terror’, and it’s awesome!! Not as instantly catchy as ‘Treats’, but I think it’s better after a few listens. It’s melodically and lyrically better than ‘Treats’, maturing their sound while remaining very true to who they are with chugging guitar rifts and machine gun drum beats. Lead singer Alexis Krauss’s vocals are still a great, sweetly breathy contrast to Derek Miller’s bombastic shredding, but her vocals have become more…badass. Listen to “Demon” to hear what I mean.
This is a great follow-up to their debut, comparable to how the Yeah Yeah Yeahs went from ‘Fever to Tell’ to ‘Show Your Bones’- adding depth to their sound without alienating their core fanbase.
Review Score: 88
Standout Tracks: “Crush”, “Demon”, “End of the Line” (my personal favorite track), “Comeback Kid”, “Never Say Die”, and “D.O.A.”.
