This is a great album. Well worth a spin!
Shadow Evocation is the stand-out track for me......faster then ever before, indeed.
:grin:

Now, when are they on tour; a band with new material to promote what a novelty.
:lol:
This can't be undone

Must still be the new release 'honeymoon' period (Cf Giants). God it is rank.

I think most of this album is pretty Damned good! Some of Dave's singing is a bit annoying like on Devil in disguise which is still a good track but overall it's a great album. Let's hope it's not their last album. Why did it take ten years though?!!!

totally agree with you on vanians vocals on devil in disguise...fucking annoying. I can't believe look left is the new single. I reckon this is definitely their last album.....in 1976 they came crashing through the front door....in 2018 they sneak out the bathroom window. so disappointing

Look left is superb IMO!
I like the Vanian roar on Devil In Disguise. I think the whole album could ROAR a bit more though.

If this album does well, then I think there is another to be done quite quickly as they had 20 songs to go with.

I must have the same dud version. Terrible vocals over a generic punkrock backing. I was listening to it in the car, but because I had the windows open, I was embarrassed that strangers passing by would judge me.

I'll be pleased for them if it's a big hit, though.

I'd give this album about 7 out of 10. It's a shame it's only ten songs long though after the long wait.

Had a quick listen on Spotify.

Emperor's new clothes IMHO :(

But then I never really rated the 'new' Damned that highly anyway.

The Record Label chose the most commercial songs,they had lots of left over material.
