“Inside Of Me”/”Rise Or Die” (Single) by Vamps

Artist: Vamps
Title: “Inside Of Me” (Single)
Label: Spinefarm Records
Release Date: 9/19/2016
Genre: J-Rock
Rating: 4.5/5

It’s been a bit of a while since I’ve thought of the Japanese Hard Rock duo Vamps and I don’t mean that in a negative sense at all but more based on so much having happened in the world of music since their 2014 release “Bloodsuckers” and subsequent 2015 visit with Apocalyptica. Now the waiting is over and the guys have released new music on Spinefarm records with a double single (if that makes any sense) and the songs “Inside Of Me” and “Rise Of Die”. I’ll speak briefly about both of these songs for you to know what you are in store for.

“Inside Of Me” – The first thing to point out about “Inside Of Me” is that it features Chris Motionless of Motionless In White on backing vocals and screams. His fans will surely be loving another chance to hear a singer they admire. Hide’s voice sounds great on this one with an often soaring register and a solid overall groove during the track thanks to the riffing of guitarist Oblivion Dust. For me this track fits right alongside bands like Motionless In White, Bullet For My Valentine and perhaps even a little My Chemical Romance so fans of those groups should give something new to their ears a chance. There is a big live sound to this one as well so I look forward to hearing it in concert.
