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 Crimson Idol

Album · 1992 · Traditional heavy metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
Losimba
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.

W.A.S.P. The Last Command

At a first glance you could mistake WASP for a hair metal band, but the illusion is swiftly dispelled. Not only is their image a little bit more ragged, blood-spattered and dangerous than your typical band of hair metal pretty boys, but musically speaking their hard-edged traditional heavy metal shows little evidence of the polish, restraint, or commercial leanings of hair metal. Instead, you get balls-to-the-wall anthems about sex, violence, and getting drunk in Texas. With Blackie Lawless delivering 1980s sleaze which somehow feels harder and dirtier than anything the group's competitors had to offer and the dual lead guitar of Holmes and Piper delivering a strong backing, it's a party on a disc that you won't want to miss if you're a fan of the more mainstream side of 80s metal. That said, if you prefer the thrash metal and first-wave death and black metal that was coming out alongside this, The Last Command might feel a little tame in comparison.

W.A.S.P. Animal (F**k Like a Beast)

ANIMAL(Fuck Like A Beast) was supposed to be included in W.A.S.P.'s eponymous titled debut album but because of the obvious controversial nature was scrapped and released as a single instead. This single was on top of the shitlist for the PMRC (Parents Music Resource Center) and Blackie Lawless and gang were laughing all the way to the bank as the controversy of the time helped their earlier albums garner enough interest to sustain a loyal cult following.

What makes the this single interesting to me isn't necessarily the shock value of the single itself (which I have to admit is a bit titillating) but the fact that both the single and the B-side (Show No Mercy) are extremely catchy and encapsulates the perfect traditional metal sound of the era. The fact that it pissed off the prudes of the American elite only adds a layer of prestige to the whole thing. Far from being the next long lost masterpiece of yesteryear, this single is now included on remastered versions of THE LAST COMMAND which is musically the extension of this sound of traditional metal.

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

"Inside The Electric Circus" is the 3rd album by W.A.S.P. and it is an interesting example of 80's American Heavy Metal, compact, aggressive and magic. So this album is good also today.

The music contained on "Inside The Electric Circus" is a granitic series of riffs with good vocal parts, not distant from another 80's bands but with a great feeling and magic, due to a superior writing. Two are the cover in this album: "I Don't Need No Doctor" (that have another Metal cover versions) and Uriah Heep's "Easy Living". But in my opinion are good also "The Big Welcome/ Inside The Electric Circus", "9.5-N.A.S.T.Y", "Shoot From The Hip", "Sweet Creetah" and "Mantronic", all characterized by granitic immediate riffs, power, medium speed rhythms and good vocal lines, aggressive at the right point.

In definitive "Inside The Electric Circus" is a good album for a moment of pleasure.
