Spirit Visions is the fourth full length album from Madison Wisconsin's Vanishing Kids. As on previous VK releases, it draws on a bizarre and eerie balance of sounds, attempting to stretch from the shimmery gloom of The Cure to the prog-metal bluster of Hawkwind. Hartman’s guitar kicks the album off on a classically chorus-heavy post-punk note with “Fire Dances,” but his solo on “Heathen Heart” evokes Slayer’s chromatic, slippery approach to lead guitar. Drohomyreky’s vocals give the album a constant air of high drama, bellowing and jumping octaves in a way that recalls Celebration’s Katrina Ford. The synths and diverse guitar tones can often give Vanishing Kids’ music a bleary, scratchy surface, but beneath that are eight solid tracks that retain their punch and finesse even in their most windy moments. - See more at: artsextract.com/2013/08/27/album-stream-vanishing-kids-spirit-visions/#sthash.S3FDVuxL.dpuf
