The album itself is not bad,but I feel only a few songs are worthy standouts that hold up against previous releases.The rest seem to be part of a transistion that will only become more apparent with further releases. The sound of Blitzkid seems to be changing more to the sound of 1476 (though it's subtle) ,which ultimatly sounds as if it's something more commericialy viable for the band all together.
Upon first listening I was somewhat let down with what I was hearing but it's already growing on me. I just wish it had a more "in your face" appeal to it.
Despite me coming across somber in this review,overall it's still a solid release from one of the only bands that truley matters in todays age of uninspired loops and autotuned vocals.
Long live the horror and long live Blitzkid!
My personal favorites are "She Won't Stop Bleeding", "The Bat Whispers", "Moonlite Veins", and "Wretched". The vocals are really top notch on this album.
The review below me is completely off in saying this album was recorded before other members were in the band. That is completely untrue as they were playing shows right before the recorded the album.
Any departures from the band don't seem to be a problem because this album is incredible and I can't wait to go see Blitzkid on tour!
Also, if you buy the digital version, which I also did, you're missing out on the awesome booklet. The artwork is really incredible, and very creepy. A must have for any horror punk collector and now even punk rock in general. A lot of green day and bad religion influence, and it sounds awesome!!!! LONG LIVE THE HORROR.
But I suppose we can lay our fears to rest because this album is very, very good. I've always seen Blitzkid as the more romantic and goth-y of the horrorpunk genre. It's the band I can see more goth chicks getting into than say, The Crimson Ghosts. To me, it's apparent now that much of that was attributed to TB. Don't get me wrong, this album is the same in tone as all of their others, but the sound is more uptempo this time. I don't think the band's sound change here is as drastic as others have stated. Think of the heavier, faster punk songs on past albums, and that's pretty much what the bulk of this album sounds like. I guess Goolsby was the punkier one of the band.
With Blitzkid I usually have to give a new album a spin a few times before it really gets it hooks in(which is the sign of a good band I think), and this one was no exception. I've listened a few times now and I've arrived at a four star rating. Maybe a few more listens could yield a five star! But I do have to say that Goolsby is doing justice to the Blitzkid name, as Apparitional stands right up proudly next to their best work.
