I was really late to the game about Emilie Autumn. It was just a couple of years ago my friends Jill and Chloe turned me on to her. How did I not come across this? I asked myself.
Then recently I was watching a video post from Katzlovesbats on YouTube, where she lamented people asking her about a band called Black Veil Brides. "What is this?" I again found myself pondering.
Turns out they've been around since 2010 and are on their third album. I took a listen to see what the fuss was about and I actually liked it! It reminds me of the cheesy hair metal bands I grew up with. It's so nice to see the young ones relighting the torch I thought (also wow I think I am getting older). I picked up the latest album Wretched and Divine and it's good glam metal fromage. I looked at their website and along with the usual fan t-shirts you can get this rosary - hilarious!
So I asked my friends on Facebook if they could recommend anything else for music and a musician friend recommended a Canadian metal group called Deimonds. They also are in the same 80s style metal vein and have been around for a little while too. They are also worth checking out if you like this style of music.
If anyone has any other artists they can recommend in either this 80s metal recitalist vein or Emilie Autumnish type music, please let me know! As I'm looking to expand my auditory palette!
