I've listened to the digital download of the album all morning and afternoon since its release. I normally like to reserve any reviews for an album for at least a month after its release simply for the fact that some songs,or sometimes a whole album can grow on you. Yet I feel Apparitional was something I couldn't hold back for a later date.
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!

Blitzkids last studio record is a fitting end to a great run from one of horror punks top names. From the start of "head over hills" to the acoustic cover of the same song at the end of the record there's not one song that isn't put together without superior knowledge of how to write a catchy tune. Songs like "Mr. Gore" and "Jane Doe #9" really show Argyle Goolsby's vocal range and skill. "The bat whispers" really soars into anthem territory and the punk rock rager "she won't stop bleeding" closes out the album and let's you know just where Blitzkid came from. A hidden acoustic cover of "head over hills" is hidden at the end and is a wonderful auditory treat of beauty.

An amazing blend of horror punk with thrash metal! Blitzkid might have had the best vocals of any band ever and this album combined fast, heavy riffs and guitar sound with those vocals along with pounding drums (including a little double bass drum!) This album is energetic and exciting! I wish more bands would be like Blitzkid and actually sing.

"apparitional" is without a doubt the best that Blitzkid has put out. The sound quality is one hundred fold better than previous albums. The lyrical content is still amazing as ever, and everything is so catchy you won't be able to get it out of your head - in a good way!

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.

Wow, just wow! This is an amazing CD and deserves much more recognition that what it is getting! This is what horror punk is all about tho many fans will see a definite change from the previous sound of the band. The previous CD's had that "garage punk" sound while this is more polished. In many ways, the vocals are now able to be focused on and that is a good thing. Take nothing away from the crunchy, slammy guitars which completely shred this entire CD all the way through. Think 88 Fingers Louie meets Bad Religion meets very, very early Green Day (all mixed together in a horror punk blender!) You get the point. Just the absolute perfect blend of crisp, hard punk! Seriously, I am really impressed with "apparitional". A much more refined effort from a talented band. I can't pick out any bad songs on the whole album - if you are reading this review you should seriously get this CD - like right now!

I just finished my first listen through on this album. My first impression is very positive. Its far more polished and consistent an album. You can really tell that they have grown as musicians and as a band. That or they had a really good producer working with them.

The whole album is good and there are a few stand outs that rival some of my favorite classic though I'm not sure that anything on this album eclipses them.
