Album Review

Unrelenting, dour, and, yes, toxic; these words barely relate Fear of God's infinite sadness. Led by perpetually cynical vocalist Dawn Crosby, this version of her band's ever-changing lineup featured guitarists Chris Kalandras and Randy Bobzien, bassist Rob Michael, and drummer John Grden. After Fear of God's 1991 debut Within the Veil received intense critical praise, this highly anticipated follow-up was met with an appropriately cool response. Toxic Voodoo's musical decline can be traced directly to the departure of guitarist/songwriter Michael Carlino. Carlino's colorful guitar tracks cupped Crosby's interminably black poetry with delicate arpeggio's and surprise-attack solos forming a spooky cauldron that shadows over this sophomore effort. Kalandras and Bobzien's metal chunk and dive-bomb solos don't conjure up much black magic, leaving Crosby to carry the entire heavy load alone. The sorceress is almost up to the task as she spews her incoherent invectives on tracks like "Beyond the Veil" and "Will of Evil." Crosby's ululating and morbid imagery is particularly haunting considering the singer's death two years later due to alcohol-related liver failure. In the end, all the banshee screams fail to overcome Toxic Voodoo's subpar metal that pins Crosby's incantations to the page, leaving her shredded psyche and vocal chords sacrificed in vain.

Customer Reviews

You need "Within the Veil"

Their first album is the one that you guys need to put up here for sale. This band was an unknown gem to me and I loved that album. "Within the Veil." This album isn't as good but still okay. It doesn't come close to the doomy sadness that was the first album. I wish I could still find a copy of that one.

More music please

Glad this is on iTunes, but we need more. I really want the song "Drift!"

Biography

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '90s

In the early '90s, Fear of God arose from the ashes of a Détente, an aggressive metal band that featured the frantic and troubled vocalist Dawn Crosby. Crosby had a reputation for being difficult to work with at times and the ever-shifting lineups that surrounded her in both Détente and Fear of God suggests that musicians did indeed have a hard time sticking with the gravel-throated songstress, despite her charismatic performing abilities and intense industry attention. Toward the end of Détente's...
