Crash My Deville - Please Glamour, Don't Hurt 'em
What I find rather attracting is the fact that one of the vocalists of this band had to be taken to the hospital during one of the recording sessions for their new album, Please Glamour, Donít Hurt Ďem. It shows that this band has the potential of being very intense. Letís hope theyíll be as intense on the final product as they were in the studio recording it. Hereís German screamo outfit Crash My Deville.
 
To be honest Iíve got some mixed feelings towards this album. On one hand the music itself seems as intense as I hoped for. Breakdowns and nice riffiní are definitely present! On the other hand, Iím not a great fan of the vocals. Itís not that theyíre misplaced or powerless but for some reason I just canít get the feeling Iím listening to a great band. Itís not much more than average and of course thatís a pity because, like I said, the music rocks! I think itís mainly the clean vocals that youíre either a big fan of or you completely dislike them. Itís the latter for me.
 
Itís a nice thing to know that this band brings in enough variation within their songs. They Ďrestí when needed to spring into action the next moment. It really seems like these guys have put a lot of thought in the writing and composing of the album. But then again, I just cannot escape the feeling Iíve heard all of the songs already halfway through the album. The songs in particular are just not that different from each other when you hear twelve in a row. I mean, thereís not one song that catches you immediately. And to repeat it one more time: that does not mean the songs suck, I just think some more variation would have done the trick.
 
Screamo/metalcore fans should give this one a try for sure, though. The songs are all well balanced and the dual vocal attack sure wonít let you fall asleep while listening. Add up to that the great production of this album and you have something quite worthy of being heard. I personally expected a bit more, but Crash My Deville sure is something to keep an eye on.
