Chilean psychobilly legends Voodoo Zombie recently joined Batcave Records family and dropped the new single Amarte es Peligroso from the upcoming new album Reviresco that will be out on Batcave Records.
The song itself is mid tempo, featuring seducing but haunting melodic vocal lines by the singer Katona Katrina that tend to lull the listener into false calm, but the hard guitar riffs and psychobilly relentlessness then hit us straight in the face but the song leaves us humming the melody the whole day long. Judging by this single, the album is going to be awesome!
