Blackie Lawless Reveals New W.A.S.P. Album Details

(Classic Rock) Blackie Lawless has confirmed the next W.A.S.P. album will be called Golgotha, and it's due out next year. And he says the four-year project has overtones of the band's most recent outings - 2007's Dominator and 2009's Babylon.

"I had a little hiccup last year; I broke my leg. That delayed recording for almost a year," Lawless explained at Sweden Rock over the weekend. "There's one thing I learned when I was doing The Crimson Idol: if you make a record over too long a time you have to be careful, because the record you start out making is not the record you end up finishing. You've changed so much as a person over a three- or four-year period; you've got to be very careful to hold on to that vision."

Explaining that Golgotha is Hebrew for The Place Of the Skull, where the Bible says Christ was crucified, Lawless comments: "You see a lot of bands using Satanic images, images of death and things like that. I'm thinking, 'All they need to do is look at the source - if you want death, there's enough to go around there.'" more on this story
