I just read this awesome review on Amazon of The Late Hours.
The obvious point of reference here is The Misfits. I mean we have some heavy b-movie-grade lyri...cal fixations and a crooning lead screamer, but beneath all these trappings lies a really great band with much more to offer a listener than the average horror punk purveyors.
Take for example (and a fine example it is) the voice of lead singer, Marquis Thomas. His croon actually seems...croonier than Glenn Danzig's. When he isn't crooning sweetly he's got a paint-pealing roar that brings to mind the world-class bellow of Larry May of The Candy Snatchers. In other words, this guy is an incredible vocalist.
Then there's the songwriting. While some of these songs are just fun, visceral, no-brainer anthems ("City Of The Living Dead", "Zombie-Eyed Youth"), others are more heady, concentrating on the real horrors of the modern world ("Synthetic Happiness", "New Flesh"), or timeless terrible truths ("Blind Love"). Then we have the title song and "Quiet Room", which are all about atmosphere, psychological horror and impending doom.
So going back to my title, if we were to compare some horror-obsessed punk bands to great horror movies, The Misfits would be "Night Of The Living Dead", The Cramps would be "Return Of The Living Dead", and The Vladimirs would be the zombie movie that is the least well-known, but most philosophical of the bunch, "Cemetery Man." Just like many people had a problem with that movie's ending, I'm having a problem with the end of this review, so...
