Album Review

Horror rock has been around for a long time. From "Monster Mash" to the Cramps and the Misfits to White Zombie, the genre is at its best when the artist in question is in on the joke . For every Lux Interior there's a Marilyn Manson, and thankfully in the case of Wednesday 13, former Frankenstein Drag Queen andMurderdolls frontman Joseph Poole represents the latter. This is punk rock filtered through the whiskey-soaked crotch of the late-'80s Los Angeles hair metal scene, and it owes as much to Mötley Crüe and Faster Pussycat as it does Black Sabbath or Screaming Lord Sutch & the Savages. Poole fuses Green Day melodicism with pop-metal on the rousing opener "Morgue Than Words," creates a new "horned hand" anthem with the brutal and dumb "Faith in the Devil," and even throws in a salute to the king of "Zombie" rock Roky Erickson on a cover of "Burn the Flames," an obscure cut from 1985's brilliant Return of the Living Dead soundtrack. Fang Bang wasn't created with even the slightest intention of reinventing the genre, but like its' sonic counterpart, Andrew W.K.'s Party Hard, it's got the hooks, the energy, and a big stupid smile on its face that's impossible to ignore. This is the soundtrack to the brain-eating dog days of summer.

HAPPY! FUN!! ALBUM

This was one of my favorite albums of the year, for some reason i can relate to most of the songs especially KILL YOU BEFORE YOU KILL ME

hmmm.....well, ok!

their first cd was better, but i give them credit for making a decent cd.

Fang Bang

Fang Bang is one of those CDs that might be better off reviewed on it's own merritt, with out comparing it to the artist's previous works... though it's kind of hard to do in this case because Transylvania 90210 was pretty epic.After Wednesday was kicked from Roadrunner and then waiting for him to find a label I was expecting a lot more. It seems that for every good song on this CD there's two bad ones to go with it. The songs sound much better live, which was probably Wednesday's intent when he wrote them, but they sound like lame wannabe party antems on CD... Fang Bang has grown on me with time, and seeing Wednesday a few times live in support of this CD made that possible.
