Vamp Le Stat -Bloodline CD Review in Metal Observer “..what Zep would have sounded like if they ever made a glam album..”

The original release of VAMP LE STAT’s “Bloodline” EP was marred by unfortunate timing. By 1993, the world had already forgotten about Metal, . Grunge was in, Metal was out, and suddenly an EP like “Bloodline,” which would’ve moved quite a few units back in 1987. XXX Records has seen fit to give the band a second chance by re-releasing “Bloodline,” long since out of print, this time with five bonus tracks.

…Tracks like “Swing Child” and “Bitch” are  Glam songs, possibly a teensy bit heavier than SLAUGHTER and other stuff you’d find on the radio. .., and the opener on “Bloodline,” “Madame Blue,” sounds very much like LED ZEPPELIN would’ve sounded like if they had ever made   a Glam album

The best track on the EP is “She’s Not In Love Anymore,” a heartfelt acoustic ballad. It’s a calm, well-executed song that probably would’ve got some decent airplay had it been released during the height of the Glam explosion. “Guns 4 Hire” is pretty decent too, showing a faster side of the band ala DOKKEN’s “Tooth And Nail.”  (June 2011)  See also Rockhard, Keester, St. Elmo’s Fire)
