Album Review

Sixx: A.M. lightened their load on Modern Vintage, a 2014 album where they spruced up their Sunset Strip sleaze with a bit of vintage glam swagger. The very title of Prayers for the Damned — the first part of a purported double-album project; the second segment is scheduled for some time later in 2016 — suggests a return to darkness and, sure enough, the album delivers upon that promise. Hard and heavy, Prayers for the Damned doesn't truck with good times: it's all sturm and drang, tempered by existential protest and calls for all the alienated to rise. These rallying cries ultimately produce a diametrically different effect than The Heroin Diaries, the insular autobiography that kicked off Sixx: A.M.'s career back in 2007. Then, the group was Nikki Sixx's vehicle to exorcise personal demons — not for nothing did it accompany a written memoir — but now that Sixx: A.M. is his main creative project, he's channeling greater ambitions into the quartet. Fittingly after a near-decade of work, the band sounds like a cohesive unit, adhering through volume and intensity. Now that the group are comfortable with their chemistry, they're presenting a unified front and confronting the world at large; it's music that looks outward. Sixx: A.M. may still battle misanthropic demons rattling inside their heads, and sometimes they'll succumb to overdriven murk — a sludgy sound that conveys gloom but gets gloopy — but the ambition on this first part of Prayers for the Damned is admirable. Better still, they often manage to take this roiling outrage and shape it into something melodramatically satisfying, an achievement that suggests why Sixx had no trouble saying goodbye to Mötley Crüe.

Customer Reviews

Prayers For The Damned

I'm extremely impressed with Prayers For The Damned in it's entirety. This brave, aware music is just what the world needs to hear right now. Prayers For The Damned has such soul, magic, raw emotions. It's BRILLIANT! I'm so struck by it. I consider it to be a thought-provoking masterpiece. "Better Man" is so real! Sixx:A.M. put such emotion & passion into "Sick" and "When We Were Gods". I find the entire album to be solemn, earnest & totally rejuvenating! "Rise of the Melancholy Empire" is filled with raw emotion, dark meaning. Outstanding lyrics throughout this album. PrayersForTheDamned is so complex. I discover something new every time I listen. Darkly fanciful, harsh & passionate, SixxAM guides us through emotional messes while leading us to a place of empowerment & peace. Each song draws me in. I expected a deep & dark Prayers For The Damned. It's beyond that. It drags us through dreams & nightmares with exuberant complexity, originallity and hope.

Much Better

This is much better than Modern Vintage. I only really liked two songs off of that album. The Heroin Diaries is my favorite. This is Gonna Hurt was pretty forgettable to me. I am happy that they went back to harder rock on this album. I prefer hard rock. Modern Vintage had some bouncy, weird, silly songs in it. To me this release is much closer in feel to Heroin Diaries.

They're back!

Great to see Sixx A.M. Coming out with another album and can't wait for the release! You guys did a great job with Rise and I'm sure the other songs will be amazing too, keep up the good work 🤘🏻

Formed in 2006 as an audio accompaniment to Mötley Crüe bassist Nikki Sixx's autobiography The Heroin Diaries, hard rock band Sixx: A.M. feature the talents of Sixx, vocalist James Michael, and DJ Ashba. The 13 tracks that make up The Heroin Diaries Soundtrack, the group's 2007 debut, coincide with the book's chapters, painting a surreal musical portrait that utilizes the over the top theatrics of '80s hair metal, spoken word pieces, electro-industrial beats, and the occasional burst of circus music...
