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
Warthur
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.

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.

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

1967/ 1976
"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.

To say that I had big expectations for W.A.S.P.'s fourteenth album is, well, a lie. It happened so that I Wanna Be Somebody was the only song of theirs that I was familiar with until my friend told me to give Babylon a try on the evening before they were playing a metal festival in Helsinki that I was anyway going to. I listened to a couple of tracks and was positively surprised, but that surprise paled in comparison with the shock that was caused by the fact that I enjoyed immensely the brilliant feel-good rock show that the band put on the next day.

They only played one track from this album, Babylon's Burning, but in retrospect I wouldn't complain if they'd played several more. This album contains several tracks that stand just as tall as some of their earlier classics, that I've gotten myself familiar with since that sunny afternoon in the summer of 2010. Crazy is a great heavy metal speedster and the half-title track is another masterpiece, and the solid album includes many other good points as well, like Thunder Red with an extremely tasty pair of guitar solos, and the power balladish Godless Run, again with some bold soloing by Doug Blair.

Even the Deep Purple cover Burn makes sense and fits well into the pack, and not just by its title, but the same can't necessarily be said for Promised Land by Chuck Berry. Godless Run would've made a good closer, but hell, despite not making that much sense Promised Land is a pretty damn fun track to close the album with.

My third big surprise regarding this W.A.S.P. matter is the voice of Mr. Blackie Lawless. It's still smokin' hot, one of the finest and most powerful rock voices out there. All in all this album has been an extremely positive experience, guess I've got to find out what happened between it and The Last Command.
