Average Rating: (5 out of 5 stars)
"The first time I heard Black Eyed Vermillion it made me appreciate Gary Lindsey from a whole different perspective. Yes, the elements of punk and heavy metal are there with Gary’s signature rasped, screaming voice, but this album and The Black Eyed Vermillion sound have so much more: deep movements of blues, bluegrass, folk and country, and even swing. If you thought all Gary Lindsey could do was scream and bleed on himself, you will be astonished with the amount of soul and creativity in his music."-Kyle "The Triggerman" of SavingCountryMusic.com
I dig punk, blues, country, rock and everything in between. This CD has it all and it all ROCKS! The vocalist has a real Tom Waits vibe but not in a "LOOK AT ME, I SOUND LIKE TOM WAITS" kind of way. He's got his own thing happening here. I hear bits of influence here from Black Flag and The Misfits to Captain Beefheart and Nick Cave. Throw in a rowdy Irish drinking song and a Nashville Pussy cover and this thing has it all. The production is great too. This one will be in heavy rotation throughout the summer. I've seen them on YouTube and have heard that their live show kills. If they ever play in in the city, I'll be there.
