Kill For Eden's self titled debut is a sultry, attitude driven, and very emotional collection of tunes that is bringing the "rock" back into rock & roll! Backed by a great band who can play all different ranges of emotions musically, the vocals are what caught my attention. Kill For Eden is one of those bands who after the first listen will turn the listener into a fan. Everything on this album is a perfect fit from the music to the vocals. This album is why I am happy to support indie underground music because it is music like this that corporate radio misses out on. Unfortunate for them but this music needs to be heard on a wider scale! Thanks Kill For Eden for creating a musical work of art!

UK band KILL FOR EDEN was formed by guitarist Dave Garfield and vocalist Lyla D'Souza back in 2009, and since then they have been putting the rest of the band together, written material and basically honed their craft, releasing an EP along the way too unless I'm much mistaken. "Kill For Eden" is their debut album, and was self-released in May 2013.

Now, I'd really like to restore my memory banks from 20 odd years ago, as this is where this album takes me. Mid to late 1980's and early 1990's material on the borderline between hard rock and heavy metal, depending on point of view. An accessible variety of this too I might add, this is music made for radio performances and large venues with crowds joining the band for multiple singalongs.

My first association when listening through this album was actually towards the late Wendy O. Williams, who released a couple of decent albums back in the 80's with the help of some decent songsmiths. Kill For Eden's material share some of those qualities: Accessible songs in nature, high singalong factor and a powerful female lead vocalist. It's not that these are directly comparable I might add, but certain superficial qualities are shared between them.

The second half of this disc is perhaps the one where the similarities are most profound within that context. The material turns fairly predictable at that point, with a certain Def Leppard meets The Cult quality to them, lightly flavored by certain chorus and structure details that brings Desmond Child to mind. Some of these songs does pack a good punch, but quite a few of them struggle to fascinate me beyond the point of being pleasant. Well made, but not any better than many other bands exploring similar material.
