Sound — 8
This EP's sound is pretty decent. The guitar work is great and I feel like even though Andy's voice continues to deepen he still makes it work. I'm more of a fan of BVB's first album more than their new but I believe this album brought that rock'n'roll feel people love. Its a pretty solid record and the covers on it are better than I expected. I'm actually impressed with the Rebel Yell cover. Andy's voice has the edge on it to really make it work. That being said his screams on this record are weak. they're no where close to any legit screaming but he gives his screams his own personal twist. Which I find pretty cool. Overall a good sounding EP.

The lyrics on the only new original on the EP "Coffin" are pretty cool. They add a great feeling of stress and anger to the record. The screaming in this song is different then you would usually hear. I'm not sure what to say about the other songs being that they are covers. But I feel they work well with the BVB style.
Overall Impression — 8
This EP isn't mind blowing and certainly isn't the groundbreaking album people think it is. I think its a good EP with a creative spin on the covers with a kick a-s new original. "Coffin" has an aggressive sound to it and I think its probably their best new song. I'm pretty happy with the EP and what BVB is doing currently. I don't think they're changing the metal scene in anyway whatsoever but they are definitely putting their two cents in. However I'm not too happy with their new sound. I wish they would go back to their original emo/gothic sound. I think if they would add a little Marilyn Manson feel to their music I think it would kick a-s. But overall this is a solid EP and I only recommend to people who enjoy BVB and some classic rock.
