Fearless Vampire Killers - Exposition: The Five Before The Flames Cover

Expecting the same thing from FVK this time? You'd be wrong...

Thematically exploring the back stories of the five central characters from last year’s debut full-length ‘Militia Of The Lost’, ‘The Five Before The Flames’ finds each of the Fearless Vampire Killers indulging their every whim, contributing one complete song apiece in lieu of their usual, more collaborative approach. As such, the surprises flow thick and fast, with acoustic passages, measured rhythms and bold, multi-part compositions bolstering the dark-hearted, theatrical flamboyance we’ve come to expect. Wisely, however, their impassioned vocal delivery and fabulous melodies remain, just about holding down a wilfully eclectic collection that sacrifices focus in favour of ambitions fulfilled.
