I was a fan of this band ever since I heard "Zombies Ate Her Brain" and followed them closely ever since. This CD features their new line up (Kenda is the new lead singer) and shows that the band is going in a slightly different direction. While I do miss the fun lyrics and homage to classic horror clichés, their new sound still features catchy hooks while also showcasing a more serious side. Whether this is still psychobilly is up to the fans of the genre: I just like their energy and overall strength of song crafting.
The songs that stick out the most are "Devil's Son" which I believe was originally written by Kenda before her time with The Creepshow, but has been arranged for the full band. Sound wise, this is probably the most 'accessible' track for general audiences. One of the characteristic features of The Creepshow is their use of background vocals and they are used to nice effect on this track.
The other stand out song is the one that also sounds the least like their other tracks, "Last Call". It is definitely a nod towards the Dropkick Murphys. It's a fun, rollicking track best enjoyed with a group of your mates at a pub well after the first round of drinks.
Comparing Kenda's vocals to the previous singers (Jen Hellcat Blackwood and Sarah Sin Blackwood) is unfair. Each singer has their own tone and attack that made their turns with the band work. I will say that Kenda's vocals do seem more capable of handling a wider range of songs. I hope to see them continue for at least another recording.
Overall, this is a very strong CD and comparable to some of their best work. If you're looking for something similar to Sell Your Soul, you will be surprised and maybe a little disappointed. If you're open to hearing a band trying new things, and a more intense sound, then this album will not disappoint.
