(review) The Whiskey Bats – The Whiskey Bats

Halloween is almost upon us and what better way to wait for it than with new The Whiskey Bats release. A while ago I did a review for their split record and here is the new one. What do we get here on this new opus? Well, we get five songs of wild and untamed energetic punk rock with a touch of horror punk thrown here and there for good measure. NC-17 is a great song with wicked guitar melody, almost evil hehe, great sing along part and being fast punk anthem in itself. Moonlight Girl is a bit different, having almost nervous guitar sound, being a bit more garage punk influenced, at least I heard it like that. Vocals are so great, screamed and shouted but fitting perfectly to wicked vibe of the record as a whole. Gallows and Vanta Black are for me the best songs on this record, but Missing Midian completes the release in rock n roll mayhem way with horror vibe all over. Great one by great band.
