We have been telling you a lot about The Killing Lights, the new music project by Michael Vampire, widely known for his work as frontman in Vampires Everywhere. The day has finally arrived for the release of their self titled EP and it was definitely worth the wait. The  five-song release was produced & engineered by DJ Black & Michael Vampire, mixed by Erik Ron (Motionless In White, Escape The Fate) and mastered by Sterling Sound NYC.

The EP starts right off with Until I Bleed which delivers a straight up dose of rock n roll, complete with some old school style rock guitar solos and wrapped in a modern hard rock edge. As Michael says about the song,  “Writing this song was liberating for me,I was reminiscing about all the fucked up shit that happened to me over the last five years. Everyone has their breaking point and this was mine. I just started scribbling words down on paper that eventually became the intro and I knew that this song would make an impact and hopefully help people in the same situation.”

The next track takes it even a bit heavier with Barely Breathing and has you swirling in a frenzy of double bass, powerful vocals dancing with harmonies and backing chants. It brings out a strong anthemic feel that will awaken your senses and invigorate you.

Crashing Down is absolutely my favorite track off the EP and I have already found myself compelled to put it on replay for most of the afternoon. It bleeds out passion in a dark haunting way as if your emotions and feelings are being felt captive, a very emotive song for me.

Next up is, Lies Spreading Like Fire which was the first single released off the EP and really made a strong impression on the listeners. It immediately had everyone excited for this new chapter of Music for Michael. They also released an epic video for it.  “I am beyond excited to finally release the ‘Lies Spread Like Fire’ video,” said Michael. “We all fight our own demons from time to time, and this is about standing up after the fight. We wanted to keep it as raw as possible, which I feel we achieved using L.A. street culture as the main storyline and aesthetic. This video is for all the fans and people that have stuck with me this past year. Together we will change everything.”

Check out the new video, Lies Spread Like Fire: 

The EP ends with Conversations and is another musical gem. This track starts off with an ethereal style intro amid backing vocals/screams. The song transcends through a celestial journey that will leave you in anticipation of more new music from The Killing Lights.
