Epic - music review

OK, against my better judgment, I thought I'd chat about "Epic" the clean version of Blood on the Dance Floor's CD that came out this past October.

Its Halloween and you might feel like a RAVE, so you might want to add these guys to your playlist. Funny, I'm just not sure how 'clean' this version is. On Epic you get 21 songs of fun and fast electronic music. Add in almost a touch of a Metro Station flavor, some interestingly fun lyrics and a screamer and you've got yourself Blood on the Dance Floor.

Blood on the Dance Floor is a group from Orlando, Florida. The group currently includes vocalist Dahvie Vanity, ; Christopher Mongillo, who is a member of many other bands including Kthx and Saturday/Thursday, and screamer Garret Ecstasy. Past members include screamer Matty M.

BOTDF have released An Album entitled Let’s Start A Riot, a single called Save The Rave, a second album entitled It’s Hard To Be A Diamond In A Rhinestone World, have released another single entitled Suicide Club, another single called Siq With A “Q” and a radio edit album.

They can be described as electronic, powerpop, electro, dance, screamo. Or just call them Scene Kings. Emo Love. They fall in the likes of Jeffree Starr, boy talks trash, the medic droid and breathe carolina. Granted, they might not be everyone's cup of tea. Still, they have a sound you can move to, while others have a blast figuring out their lyrics.

Very interesting. I'll check them out.
Oh, do you like CocoRosie? Listen to Lemonade by them. It's freaky, but deep and beautiful.
Have a good week.
