Metalcore/post-hardcore band, Ice Nine Kills, based out of Boston, Massachusetts are set to release their upcoming live acoustic EP, Undead & Unplugged: Live From The Overlook Hotel. The record is based around a live acoustic set from a small crowded show in Colorado at The Stanley Hotel, where Stephen King loosely based the story in his famous novel, The Shining. The EP features five tracks from their previous album, The Silver Scream.
The first song off the EP is “Savages.” With that great catchy sing-a-long chorus, the clean acoustic guitar, it was very fitting to put on the EP. “Thank God It’s Friday” is the next song on this record and it sounded great listening to it. I was even rocking to it like the original version. They did a great rendition of the song. Up next is “A Grave Mistake” and “Love Bites,” with that very hard catchy chorus, and they sound great acoustically. The last song on this record is “Enjoy Your Slay.” This song is a great song to just enjoy and to kick back to. Overall this record is great if you enjoy acoustic songs and love Ice Nine Kills. I hope to hear more acoustic renditions of future Ice Nine Kills songs.
