The latest album “Underskin” from “Vlad in Tears” incorporates melodic gothic rock, that sounds Finnish and the boys themselves look like rockabillies -with the exception of the singer, Kris Vlad, who could be the brother from Jyrki 69. Together with producer John Fryer (NIN, DM, HiM), the four Italians are releasing an album that could help them with their final breakthrough. Their newest creation, “Underskin” consists of radio friendly songs, like “Forbidden Dream” and “Your Doom”. Some of the tracks are more catchy, like “My Wreck” and “Inner Shelter”. In general, the album is a bit gloomy, but mostly in the direction of gothic rock with an electronic twist.
If you are into bands like HiM, The Rasmus, Dopestars Inc. and 69 eyes, you should not leave the newest from “Vlad in Tears”.
