NAPALM RECORDS 2015
Blackie Lawless has laid low the past six years after gaining momentum for himself and W.A.S.P. with "Babylon" and the nearly iced "Dominator" before it. Lawless suddenly finds himself shy of a drummer as nine-year vet Mike Dupke departs the band prior to the release of the band's newest album, "Golgotha". What's glaring about "Golgotha" is that W.A.S.P. are in a contented yet muscular verve while doing very little to change the core formula that has hardly deviated since "The Headless Children". This includes "Miss You", where Blackie hits a sage, wrenching depth to his vocals, and the familiar back-and-forth chord bobs sprawling throughout "Fallen Under". To sum it up - great stuff from Blackie & his bunch !
