VANITY INSANITY - Drop Dead (printed CD-R)

I had the great pleasure of getting acquainted with Vanity Insanity at the Rock Out Wild festival. A bunch of nice and great sounding guys live. The band’s first four-track demo proves the songs are just as strong when listening without the live experience. It kicks off with sleazy rocker Better Without You with it’s cool riffing and Skid Row-attitude. Viggo is a great singer with the perfect attitude and vocal tone for the musical direction, with a bit of Sebastian Bach tone actually. The song written for the Rock Out Wild festival is a great groovy rocker with some detuned riffing going on. Drop Dead starts out a bit like Still Of The Night but takes its own path, just as heavy though. Dented Halo is a straight ahead rocker in the vein of classic Poison meets Crüe. Songs that should attract any fan of good old sleaze. The demo was recorded very quickly, which unfortunately shows in the mix and delivery. Give this band a proper studio, a great engineer and I’m sure they will give bands like Crashdïet, Crazy Lixx and Loud ‘N Nasty a run for their money!
