ALL MY SHADOWS – Eerie Monsters
BAND URL: https://allmyshadows.de/
Eerie Monsters by the outfit named All My Shadows, which features members of Vanden Plas, is a lovely surprise and an impressively crafted piece of work that boasts a crunchy and powerful production, atmospheric and robust songs, excellent vocals, and plenty of killer riffs.
The band sound as if they are having an absolute blast and the record is simply brimming with character and overflowing with cool ideas. The music is certainly different to Vanden Plas yet it feels comfortably close to it somehow in terms of quality and depth, which undoubtedly has something to do with Stephan Lill (guitars) and Andy Kuntz (vocals) appearing in both groups. Those big, confident choruses and classy solos are absolutely glorious, and there are several emotive moments that will thrill you to bits. ‘Syrens’ is a brooding highlight, and there are several parts of unexpected beauty to be discovered throughout the entire disc, but more importantly, the album does not mindlessly mimic anything else, nor does it contain a single dud among its nine tracks. An epic hard rock triumph in so many ways and a refreshing listen.
