Probably the best way to describe the album is half-paced Thrash. OK, so Thrash is identified with it's speed and aggression. This has aggression by the bucketload. It just lacks the speed. Play it at 78rpm and you'd get something like a dark and gloomy, almost Gothic, Nuclear Assault. The riffing is fairly standard Thrash fare, nothing flashy, but catchy enough. Strangely, the riffs should be memorable, but they slip through your mind very quickly. The solos and drumming are both solid, but unimpressive because of the inability of the band to change out of second gear.
The guitar tone is, well, odd. Imagine Bob Dylan's singing voice as an electric guitar- twangy and nasal, with a hint of a whine. An unusual effect, but as memorable as the riffs are forgettable.
Anyway, enough of the instrumental sideshows, what about the main event? What about Rob Zombie's voice? Luciano Pavarotti he isn't, but like any good singer with limited ability, Zombie knows his limits. He has written the songs to fit his voice, rather than embarrassing himself trying to stretch himself too far. The subject matter of the songs is just what you'd expect from Rob Zombie- B-movie schlock horror. Zombie drawls, moans and snarls his way through such lyrical niceties as "This is murderworld sister/A deep throating little baby-face" and "Justice claws/A death horizon/ Freak-zone flesh/Maggot man rising".Read more ›
If you're coming here, trying to decide if you should buy this album based on the reviews, then you probably won't like it. If you're a hard-core WZ fan, then you probably already have this album, and I'm wasting my breath.
However, I recommend giving it a try, no matter your level of admiration for this great band. It's a love it or hate it album.
