Eagles Of Death Metal – Zipper Down


Eagles Of Death Metal - Zipper Down (Downtown Recordings) 2015


It’s hard to imagine putting Jesse Hughes and Josh Homme in a room and not getting something electrifying. It’s been seven years since the enfants terribles from Palm Desert released Heart On, but Zipper Down stays true to the band’s character; down-and-dirty rock n’ roll with a touch of the frivolous. Tracks like “The Deuce” and “Skin Tight Boogie” seep with lascivious guitars and raunchy lyrics while “The Reverend”, a humorous nod to Hughes’ religious views and “Silverlake” sound effortlessly cool in classic EODM fashion. However, it is moments like the amplified cover of Duran Duran’s “Save a prayer” which bring something new to the mix, proving that, four albums in, the band may still follow the same formula but they could never be accused of dullness.
