Review: Vampires Everywhere! - Kiss the Sun Goodbye

In a neo-glam metalcore scene already oversaturated with bloody references to preternatural creatures, LA’s Vampires Everywhere! set themselves apart by bringing a sonic depth to their romanticized tales of the undead. On their full-length debut, they display a charismatic guttural rage to go along with their emo-inflected hooks on biting tracks like “Ashes to Ashes” and “Carnage at the Castle.” Meanwhile, “Kill the Chemicals” sounds like the missing link between AFI and Avenged Sevenfold. Though Michael Vampire’s over-reliance on vocal effects comes off as trite at times, hopelessly catchy singles “Immortal Love” and “The Embrace” ultimately should win over skeptics to these Hollywood bloodsuckers.
