[Single] VAMPS – Devil Side

2010年 5月 22日

SO, I have been extremely lazy as you know. Been taking summer classes and doing practice while trying to relax. Anyway, I’ll try and get review out in a more timely manner (hah, we’ll see) xD.

***Aoliwa cover note*** That is one sexy cover. Hot sh*t VAMPS.

Devil Side is a generally upbeat song. Hyde really is pushing on the vampire and basically satanic lyrics. I like it though! He does a great job incorporating it into his music. The music itself is good. There is steady bass and at some point a short guitar solo. This is a pretty decent song! For some reason, the one I got is a lot quieter than the B-side….

Live Wire, the B-side of this single, is a lot more upbeat. Starts off with a little guitar and a burst of full-band. Then the second time they basically shoot straight into the first verse. The chorus is pretty simple. It’s not so hard to find repetition in many songs, but of course… it is used effectively! There is also a section which seems kind of like Hyde is trying to seduce you. I’m personally not a fan of complete muffling of sound in rock music, but they use it near the end.

Overall: Pretty upbeat single, dealing of course with the symptoms of satan and fulfilling desire. VAMPS does a great job!
