W.A.S.P. - Unholy Terror
Label: Metal-Is Records

Let It Roar
Hate To Love Me
Loco-Motive Man
Unholy Terror
Who Slayed Baby Jane?
Raven Heart
Wasted White Boys

Blackie Lawless is pissed off and he wants you know to about it! While never shy with his opinion, Blackie has saved most of his fire and rhetoric from interviews and soundbytes. No more, with Unholy Terror Blackie lets loose like never before and produces possible the band's best album since "The Last Command." 

Tracks like "Let it Roar", "Unholy Terror", "Europia" and "Raven Heart" retain the classic W.A.S.P. feel but it doesn't suffer from sounded dated like so many 80's metal bands who are still putting out new music. 

Blackie's voice still commands the listener's attention with it's growling venom but instead of talking about sex, Blackie uses his voice here to get a few things off his chest about politics and religion. You may not agree with what Mr. Lawless has to say but you have to respect the delivery.  Chris Holmes as usual showcases his six string skills with precision, laying down some of the tastiest leads of his career. 

In the final analysis Unholy Terror just gives us one more reason to love this band and to be grateful they are still kicking ass and taking names all these years later. Hats off to Blackie and company for a top notch album!
