“Get Away” and the “The Jolly Roger” are two of VAMPS’ best songs!!! I bought all three versions so i could get all the remixes! Absolutely awesome!!
Vampires? Pirates? YES, PLEASE!
There is no other band that could combine two seemingly different themes - vampires and pirates - in one song and make it AWESOME than VAMPS. Fueled by upbeat and fast-paced guitar riffs by K.A.Z and HYDE's masterful vocals, "THE JOLLY ROGER" leaves you wanting to sail the high seas. "GET AWAY" is a powerful rock/dance tune that makes you wiggle in your seats and highlight HYDE's versatile vocals. The remixes are an added bonus and only illustrate VAMPS' versatility as artists. So stop reading this review and buy the single already! :3
Vamps is a project of Hyde, the vocalist of the visual kei stars L'Arc-en-Ciel, and guitarist K.A.Z., mastermind of the industrial/alternative rock unit Oblivion Dust, who used to work with Hide of X-Japan as well. K.A.Z. and Hyde had collaborated since 2003, and in 2006 K.A.Z. co-wrote Hyde's third solo album, Faith, but it was only in 2008 that they finally made their musical relationship official, announcing the creation of Vamps, which was to be recording on its own label Vamprose. L'Arc-en-Ciel scheduled a three-year hiatus, while Oblivion Dust, which ended its own six-year break in 2007, was meant to go on with K.A.Z. splitting his time between the two bands. Vamps debuted in 2008 with the single "Love Addict," followed by a Japan-wide "Zepp" tour of 46 stops and two more singles in 2009, paving the way for the band's first album, the eponymous record set for the release in the summer of 2009, after the end of Vamps' second live tour. ~ Alexey Eremenko
