Reviews CD Reviews Horror-Punk, Gothbilly The Deep Eynde- Shadowland


Artist: The Deep Eynde
CD Title: Shadowland
Label: Disaster Records
Reviewer: Matthew Johnson
Date: 10/17/04

Deep Eynde vocalist Fate Fatal is a chameleon, having gone through incarnations as a gothic cabaret singer, a swaggering rockabilly vampire, and now, on the band’s first domestic label release, a Misfits-inspired punk demon. Several tracks on the latest CD are actually newly recorded versions of older songs. “Suicide Drive,” which first appeared on the import-only album of the same name, is faster and edgier than the original, while “Space Invaders” is tight and clean where the older version was raw and crunchy. Despite the obvious horror punk influence, Fatal is sounding a lot less like Glenn Danzig these days, and songs like “She Likes Skulls” and “Devilchild” are pop punk in the best sense, with slick guitar riffs and shout-along choruses. “9th Day” is a little rougher around the edges, with heavier power chords and just the right amount of snarl, while the sinister guitars of “Don’t Walk Away” are like cowpunk from beyond the grave. For fans of the Deep Eynde’s more Cramps-inspired work, “Mr. Guilt” struts with rock ‘n’ roll attitude. Longtime fans already know that the Deep Eynde get better and better with every new identity, but with an American album readily available, this is the perfect time for newcomers to hop on the bandwagon. With so many groups sporting the all-black look on MTV, maybe the time is right for the Deep Eynde to show the world what real devil-punk is all about.
