Rocket From The Crypt - In League With Satan - Orange Vinyl (/400)


Swami (2013)

The 2nd of the Rocket From The Crypt UK tour 7"s was originally sold on December 2nd, 2013.  It was released in conjunction with the band's show in Newcastle.  For this cover song, the Newcastle band that they chose was Venom.  I can't say that I listen to much Venom, really.  I've linked to the original at the end of this review, but it's not like I am intimately familiar with their version of the song.  It's kind of evil, you see.

The Rocket From The Crypt version of the song is quite stellar.  Like the original it's got pounding George Of The Jungle style drumming, distorted vocals and a really driving verse.  They bring in the horns to accent the chorus in trademark RFTC fashion. We also get some "Killy Kill" style "woo woos" for good measure, not to mention the nasty guitar solo tossed in the middle.

"In League With Satan" is another outstanding addition to the Rocket from the Crypt catalog,  It leans towards the aggressive side of Rocket songs, but they keep the song lighthearted enough that it still sounds like a party.  Just an evil party this time out.
