Sometimes first impressions amaze me. Like looking at the cover of this CD, I think… Nikki Sudden. I open the case to find in the thank you list… yeah… Nikki Sudden (as well as Jeff Dahl, Motorcycle Boy, and the Lipstick Killers). So what’cha think. Jangle town Hollywood glam trash rock? Yeah, kinda. This is just so Jacobites. That guitar strum, that voice that makes me think of Christmas time. Yes, Nikki does it so much better, but Mr. K has his riffs down pretty good, and with the help of some talented musicians and some beautiful violin, he’s got his own songs to sing. The almost vicious rocker, “Hollywood,” the motorcycle drive of “Remember Her Sad,” and the ballad breath of “Lonely Girl.” There are definitely worse influences to have.

Sirens

Screen Reviews

The fact that the band Slaves to Sirens exists is impressive, but that they live, love, and breathe to play metal takes things to another level. Sirens documents the journey. Review by Charles DJ Deppner.
