CD Review: The Eagles Of Death Metal Are Caught With Their "Zipper Down"

The California rock band Eagles Of Death Metal have returned after a seven year hiatus to release their new album "Zipper Down" through Downtown Recordings in association with the Universal Music Group. The duo of Josh Homme (Queens Of The Stone Age) and Jesse Hughes have once again combined their efforts to create some refreshing new rock music that will make you dance as well as bang your head.
 
The new eleven song release begins with the album's lead-single "Complexity," which has Homme bashing away on the drums, while Hughes sings about keeping it easy, as the duo happen to do with this straight-up rocker. They incorporate some comedy into the lyrics of the highly contagious rhythm-led "Silverlake (K.S.O.F.M.)," while "Got A Woman" is a seventies-type punk blast. The Eagles Of Death Metal get a little funky with "Oh Girl" and get their groove going for a little "Skin Tight Boogie." The album finishes with a dark goth-like cover of Duran Duran's "Save A Prayer" and the modern rock flair of "The Reverend."
 
Eagles Of Death Metal just wrapped up the first leg of their U.S. tour and will be hitting the west coast with string of shows in October, before heading to Europe in November. To find out more about their latest release "Zipper Down," please visit eaglesofdeathmetal.com.
