W.A.S.P. picture
W.A.S.P. is an American heavy metal band formed in 1982 which gained notoriety for its "shock rock"-image, music and live performances.

The band, formed in Los Angeles, California, initially consisted of Blackie Lawless, Rik Fox, Randy Piper and Tony Richards. The band initially became famous for its raunchy and at times shocking live shows; Lawless was known to tie semi-naked models to a torture rack and hurl raw meat into the audience. The band's debut single, entitled Animal (Fuck Like a Beast), was equally controversial.

The initial line up didn't last for long, as Rik Fox left the band to join (then unknown) vocalist Ron Keel & guitarist Yngwie Malmsteen in the band Steeler. He was replaced with Don Costa. Shortly after that, Don Costa also left the band and his position on the bass was filled by Lawless. At the same time, guitarist Chris Holmes joined the band.

W.A.S.P. The Headless Children

The Headless Children is the fourth studio album from heavy metal band W.A.S.P.

W.A.S.P. are one of those bands that was stuck in between glam and traditional metal at the beginning of their career. They had the image and lyrics of glam, but certainly were a metal band. You could say they were similar to Motley Crue in that sense, being both glam and metal. While their early stuff is good enough, they really made a huge leap for the better with The Headless Children.

Gone is the shock-rock image, gone are the sex-obsessed lyrics, and enter a mix of energetic heavy metal tracks and bleak emotionally-charged songs. Songs like the cover of The Who's "The Real Me", "Mean Man", and the darker-sounding "Maneater" are just pure fun heavy metal, while songs like "The Heretic (The Lost Child)", "The Neutron Bomber", and the title cut showcase a much more mature, depressive, and politically-charged sound. These songs are my favorites; Blackie Lawless's amazing emotional vocal performance and bleak atmosphere making them absolutely spine-chilling.

Blackie Lawless's vocals on this album really are amazing, having one of the most emotive voices in metal. His vocals feel a lot more passionate than they did on the band's glam albums. The instrumentation is just as amazing, with some killer guitar licks, ripping solos, and powerful drums. The bonus tracks are great, including an excellent cover of the Jethro Tull classic "Locomotive Breath", the cold "Lake of Fools", "War Cry", and the song "For Whom the Bell Tolls" (Not to be confused with the Metallica song.)

If W.A.S.P.'s old image puts you off, give this album a listen. This album is all raw power and emotion, and one of the greatest albums I've ever heard. A true classic metal album. Hope you found this review helpful.

W.A.S.P. The Headless Children

W.A.S.P. was a band that always rode just under the crest of the glam metal wave of the late 1980s. They were too antisocial to gain much radio play and too heavy for many glam fans. The hairspray, makeup and songs about girls alienated traditional metal fans. However, W.A.S.P. made too much noise to ignore.

The choir intro and menacing feel mounting at the start of "The Heretic (The Lost Child)" dispel any thoughts of dismissing W.A.S.P. as mere glam shock rockers. The song is dark and heavy (for W.A.S.P.), and almost reaches the heights of traditional Metal a la Manowar and Maiden. Blackie Lawless has never been a flash guitarist himself, but proved here he could knock out some very solid rhythm guitar. Over it all, Chris Holmes threw layer upon layer of guitar histrionics, with solos flying in several directions at once.

The title track follows in a similar dark vein. Where the opener crashed along at a brisk pace, "The Headless Children" throws out the anchors. It pounds along incessantly, with the heaviest drum sound the band ever produced.

W.A.S.P. had a habit of throwing in the odd cover to their albums. This time round, it is The Who's "The Real Me". Double kickdrums, at the time the staple of thrash metal, are thrown in here courtesy of Frankie Banali. Also in the mix was keyboard player Ken Hensley, beefing things up with the unmistakable sound of a Hammond organ. This was confusing for thrashers. W.A.S.P. were a glam metal band with a keyboard player, and therefore the sworn enemy, but the music wasn't throwaway pop–rock. The lyrics weren't about "Girls, Girls, Girls", and the band had toned down their effeminate side. What was a thrash fan to do?

Basically, all they had to do was wait for side two of the album (back in 1989, albums had at least two sides). Yep, after a promising start, Blackie fucked it all up. First song up on side two was "Mean Man", which was supposedly banned by the BBC for having the word "motherfuckin'" in it. It was more likely to have been because it was crap. In an instant, the atmosphere of despair and hopelessness built up on side one disappears. Lyrics as piss poor as "Chewbacca in the rye/The water of fire" and "Scooter gypsy/I'm a renegade/An orphan of the road/A live hand grenade" deserve to be banned. "The Neutron Bomber", "Maneater", and the ubiquitous power ballad "Forever Free" are just as bad.

By the time "Rebel In The FDG" rolls around, thrash fans of old would have been praying for merciful death (and would be hunting through their collection for Dark Angel’s "Merciless Death"), as the album descends into full on cock rock "yeah, yeah, ooh, ooh, baby, baby" territory.

After a moody first half, 'The Headless Children' crashed and burned into the realm of glam metal cliché, proving a glam rocker can't change his leopard skin spots.

W.A.S.P. Inside the Electric Circus

W.A.S.P. were a tricky proposition in the 1980s. Yes, they were rooted fair and square in the glam metal scene, but they had the problem of being too brutal for many of the glam rockers, but too camp for thrash fans. You just have to look at their image — Blackie Lawless looked like he'd stolen his hair off the Bride of Frankenstein and there were those famous saw blades on his arms. And the guy was 6 foot 6! And then there was the tattooed madman, guitar–slinging sidekick in the form of Chris Holmes, a booze fuelled psychopath. W.A.S.P.'s stage show also out–shocked Alice Cooper's.

Yes, the image was strong. But W.A.S.P. always had the music to back it. And what about the music? Well, Blackie Lawless had been writing songs for the likes of Motley Crüe for a period before he put W.A.S.P. together, and had proved to be pretty prolific as a songwriter. "Inside The Electric Circus" was W.A.S.P.'s third album in as many years, and Lawless' inspiration did not seem to have flagged at all. The decadent sex (9.5 –N.A.S.T.Y.), drugs (Douche Bag Blues) and rock n roll (Inside The Electric Circus) ingredients are all there.

Musically, W.A.S.P. rocked a lot harder than a majority of glam rock bands at the time. Blackie's voice is a lot harsher than the glam standard "nuts in a vice" squeal popular at the time. There are some tasty vocal harmonies and melodies to be found too. Riff–wise, it would not take too much beefing up to see some of the guitar work turning up on the likes of an Ozzy Osbourne album.

While it may have seemed like W.A.S.P. was living the rock n roll dream to the casual observer, all was not well. W.A.S.P. became a major target of the PMRC's moral crusade to sanitise music for the youth of America. While this undoubtedly boosted the band's image and career (kids will always want to check out what they're not meant to), it also took away much of the gloss from the band's success. Indeed, Lawless had been fired up by the moral minority, with "I'm Alive" dedicated to "oppressive organisations worldwide".

At the end of the day though, this is still a good fun rock and roll album. A couple of covers ("I Don't Need No Doctor" and "Easy Living") helped lighten the mood, and there are some neglected classics here, like "Restless Gypsy" and "Mantronic".

This is the stuff many a metalhead listened to between Bon Jovi and Iron Maiden

W.A.S.P. The Crimson Idol

When this album was published, I read a review in the German edition of the Metal Hammer which rated it down because the author compared The Crimson Idol with Operation: Mindcrime by Queensryche which was in his opinion THE reference for every concept album. I disagreed then, and I still do. Back in 1992 my reference for every concept album was Misplaced Childhood by Marillion, though it is not Heavy Metal. Now I have given up the habit to compare concept albums to other ones, simply because it is rarely possible. There are not many concept albums which share the topic or style, though bands in the progressive genres certainly publish more of them. Accordingly, The Crimson Idol has a completely different topic than Operation: Mindcrime, and I can't recall another concept album about music business and the pitfalls for the artists.

Musically, The Crimson Idol is a really good album. There is no song I could rate as crap, while there are several I consider excellent. The style is dominated by the usual W.A.S.P.-like highspeed, but there are some surprisingly slow passages and even an acoustic ballad in The Idol. Another positive feature for me is the relative lack of extreme vulgarities that are so typical of W.A.S.P. and the main reason why I'm not too fond of this band.

My favourite songs are Chainsaw Charlie with it's stylish chainsaw intro, the already mentioned The Idol and the final The Great Misconception Of Me, another rather slow song with a lot of lyrical depth. There are other concept (and normal) albums I still prefer over The Crimson Idol, but it is the best W.A.S.P. album by a large margin. To be honest, it is the only album of this band I like. 4 stars.

Blackie Lawless and crew were clearly listening to Pink Floyd's The Wall a lot when cooking up The Crimson Idol - at least, if it isn't a loving homage to Roger Waters' "oh, woe is me, I'm rich and successful and popular" rock opera, then it's either a rip-off or a huge, huge coincidence. Dealing with more serious subject matter like drug addiction and the failure of your rock star lifestyle to make you feel happy and contented prompts them to lose some of the brash, sleazy rawness of their earlier work, but it's a decent enough stab at the subject matter which, unlike the Wall, doesn't outstay its welcome.
