ok ..... I like this. great kit sound. nice low end bass. well recorded guitars and the vox sit on top like they need to be.

a rudimentary beat tho ... not much in the way of groove. maybe it's the straight forward attack .... the 1-234, 2-234 thrash approach- as well as it's recorded, there's little to love in the beat. even if you consider that it's not meant to be a thinking persons song too much, and more of a straight forward mosh, it's still not really getting it. it's just toooo simplistic. it has no beat appeal.

good grinding bass tho -- and especially cool that it leads off the song. fabulous sound. even tho it's mashed so incredibly hard with compression - it's perfect for the punk rock roots rock style. many indie bands could learn a few things about recording and representing a bass from this band. there's thunder lows but still, there's a note there. a presence. a feeling of bass but it contributes to the chord progression and musicality.

great axe sounds. well recorded. well mixed. dry. tight. heavy ass tube sounds. vintage but with a modern sorta sound. can't praise the guitars enough ....

the vocals ... well ... nothing spectacular to be sure ... a growling howling baritone with very few notes in a limited range but dammit - as I continue hitting the play button (as it finishes rather quickly), they are what is dragging me into really digging the song.

it's ashamedly catchy. even tho it's profane in color, it's got an undeniable hook to the chorus. which is completely isolated in it's lyric to a single and nearly alienating topic (zombie girl), it still seems to grab me and make me favor it's mood more than it's actual story.

it's a grower. at first I sorta hated it. I played it again and I didn't hate it as much. I played it again and I didn't even really dislike it. I played it again and I started to respect it. I played it again and I found myself even liking it. I played it again and I found myself humming the words and looking around at what I really liked about it...

that's a good song. with some longevity. hitting home.

good job.

There's not too much I can say about this track, only that it blew me away!

I absolutely loved the dialogue used for the intro and outro! It's good to be different, and it was very bold of the composer to include that element.

Definitely a feelgood song, and it's put a smile on my face, mainly due to the humour that I detected in the lyrics. I just sat there laughing a lot. Humour is good in a song of this type of concept, and this one has plenty of it!

A throwback to the punk/ new wave era of the late 70's, which made it even more enjoyable!

Lyrics

She's the one you've been lookin' for
The pretty undead girl next door
Pastey skin and unkempt hair
Cuts and bruises everywhere
The vacant look that's one her face
She's always starin' into space
She don't care, yeah, this much is true
But she's gonna come for you...

Chorus:
That bitch is a zombie (ZOMBIE!)
That bitch is a zombie
That bitch is a zombie (ZOMBIE!)
She's a fuckin' zombie
That bitch is a zombie (ZOMBIE!)
She's a za-za-zombie
That bitch is a zombie (ZOMBIE!)
She's a zombie and she's gonna come for you
Come for you
Come for you
She's gonna come for you
GO!

She likes to moan and she likes to hiss
She smells like rotten shit and piss
She shuffles left, and she shuffles right
She never goes to sleep at night
The vacant look that's one her face
She's always starin' into space
She don't care, yeah, this much is true
But she's gonna come for you...

(Chorus, repeat first verse, then chorus again)

She's gonna come for you
