Album Notes
During a considerably lengthy hiatus from the public eye, southern KY metal adventurists, Vilejive have by no means been sitting idly taking a break. After having gone through a certain reformation, Vilejive is very much still alive and exploring an entirely new sound. At the heart of this reformation is the union of six people, including the four remaining former members ( Matt Devore, Shelby Smith, Eric Curtis, & Luke McFarland) plus vocalist Tony Oswald and bassist Matt Shepherd... both also known for their work in Glasgow, Ky band, P.Y.L.O.T. Guitarist, Luke McFarland later left the band to attend college, leaving Shelby Smith to be the only guitarist. In essence, a hybrid of talent, skill, and background is currently working to form a sound that can be described as nothing less than a hybrid itself. The word 'genre' means nothing to the music that has been manifested by these musicians, and is sure to mean even less in the future. An intellegent mixture of improvisation, complex structure, and the chord progessions & melodies of jazz, reggae, funk, and a little techno are all topped off with a slight dosage of metal to birth an aural experience that is both novel and powerful. What can be truly deemed "The New Vilejive," will be different than anything you've ever heard before and that's a fact they're proud of.

Brace yourself for Vilejive. You won't be expecting it.

a blast
Got a pressie of this and I love it. First couple of listens you never know where its gonna go as these guys are talented musicians and move through several styles in the one song. I love the vocals particularly. The're very reminiscent of Paul King from the eighties who I always considered to have a great voice. My only gripe was a purely subjective one. Personally, the brief episodes of "death" metal like gruff vocals are not my cup of tea but they are a small price to pay and even if you are a like minded individual, you can still really enjoy Vilejive
