ALBUM BAD DISEASE
LABEL PURE STEEL RECORDS
OUT 2018 Sept 28th
OUR RATING 80/100
With Shaun Vanek (guitars and vocals), aka Vanik, and Steve Dukuslow (drums) Vandallus from Cleveland do indeed feature the core of the mighty Midnight in their ranks.
The current line-up is completed by Jason Vanek (vocals, guitar), with Tyler Harvey (Deadiron) on guitar and Tim Frederick (Wretch, Eternal Legacy, Destructor) on bass.
Although the band is Jason’s baby, Midnight boss Jamie Walters also contributed a few songs to Vandallus' debut effort »On The High Side«, which saw the light of day on High Roller Records in 2016. But Vandallus is a different project from Midnight; basically the idea came about of recording material in the vein of late 70's/early '80's hard rock.
The sound is great; classic hard rock with some melodic parts, never "too hard", enhanced by suitable vocals.
