Doyle - Abominator

by Kevin Wierzbicki

.
Doyle is the name of the new band anchored by former Misfits guitarist Doyle Wolfgang Von Frankenstein and rounded out by Cancerslug vocalist Alex Story and the rhythm section of bassist "Left Hand" Graham Reaper and another former Misfits member, drummer Dr. CHUD.

As you might guess by the pedigrees these guys have, Doyle is a hard rock/metal outfit working in the horror genre. As you also would expect from such an experienced bunch, they are really good at what they do.

The album begins with the title track and an agonized scream from Story; the howl is an appropriate prelude to lyric's about "streets running red with blood" and guitar riffage sharp enough to decapitate.

"Abominator" though is more fun than it is frightening; the words are threatening but the song itself is sing-along friendly and holds enough fist-thrusting moments to potentially become a horror metal anthem. And that's the overall idea here: Doyle isn't trying to scare your pants off or push the limits of the grotesque; they just want you to have a good time. And it's almost impossible not to with an album peppered with songs about homicidal midnight creepers ("Bloodstains"), cannibals (the Motorhead-like "Head Hunter"), a quick trip to Hell ("Land of the Dead") and the self-explanatory "Cemetery Sexxx."

There's enough thrashing going on throughout Abominator to satisfy those who want to bang their heads but Doyle's guitar playing is just as melodic as it is manic and you can understand all of Story's words; that adds up to an effort with all the ingredients needed to please longtime fans and also bring new fans into the fold.

To that end the band has picked "Valley of Shadows" with its delightful refrain "swing from the gallows!" to be the first Abominator cut to get the lyric video treatment, and when that happens later this summer lots of Rob Zombie fans are going to jump on the Doyle bandwagon with gory glee.
