Vladimirs – “The Late Hours”

Vladimirs – “The Late Hours” (High Roller Records)

If you’re a fan of original Misfits, then you’re sure to also know Vladimirs. These Cincinnati horror metal punks had been going since the mid 90s, but after a 5 year slumber following the departure of original bass player Doug Nevels in 2007, have recently been resurrected. Playing fast, bottom heavy punk-a-rola with Marquis Thomas’s Evil Elvis-ish vocals on songs like ‘Synthetic Happiness’, there is definitely more of a metal influence compared to Misfits on songs like ‘Quiet Room’ featuring double bass drumming and also in Brian Day’s metalized guitar work. However, the overall theme defined by songs like ‘Zombie Eyed Youth’ still remains the same of short, fast, fist banging songs that you can give a big shout out to while partying on!
