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. Animal (F**k Like a Beast)

Single · 1984 · Heavy Metal

"Animal (F**k Like a Beast)" is a single release by US heavy metal act W.A.S.P.. It was released through Music for Nations in April 1984. The single features the A-side title track, and the B-side track "Show No Mercy". "Animal (F**k Like a Beast)" was originally intended to be included on the band´s self-titled debut full-length studio album, but Capital Records pulled the track from the final album release, as they feared that the explicit sexual content of the lyrics would get the album banned from some of the major US retail chains. Instead W.A.S.P. opted to release "Animal (F**k Like a Beast)" as a single, but Capital Records didn´t dare to release that in the US either, so the single ended up being a UK only release through Music for Nations and "Animal (F**k Like a Beast)" wasn´t available in the studio version in the US until it was included on the reissue of W.A.S.P. debut album in 1998.

Listening to "Animal (F**k Like a Beast)" with the ears of today, it´s a bit hard to imagine why it was considered such a controversial track (the PMRC continuesly used the track, when they were rallying against explicit lyrics in rock music), but granted the lyrics are pretty explicit if you are sensitive to images of naked women and hard sex. The music itself is hard rocking heavy metal, but very catchy and melodic. "Show No Mercy" (which is not a Slayer cover) is one of the band´s more harder edged and dark heavy metal tracks. A pretty great B-side.

The material is well produced, well composed, and well played, and as a single release "Animal (F**k Like a Beast)" is quite successful to my ears, but I doubt that it would have received as much attention as it did, if the lyrics for the title track hadn´t been as provocative as they are. A good publicity stunt, or maybe just the circumstances of the situation elevated the release to something a bit more interesting than it really was/is. Still a 3.5 star (70%) rating is deserved.

"W.A.S.P." is the self-titled debut full-length studio album by US heavy metal act W.A.S.P.. The album was released through Capitol Records in August 1984. It was originally titled "Winged Assassins", but is mostly known under the eponymous title. The original version of the album was to have featured the track "Animal (Fuck Like a Beast)", but as a consequence of pressure from the PMRC (The Parents Music Resource Center), Capitol Records decided to cut the track from the album, and W.A.S.P. instead opted to release the track as a UK single. The album, and especially the opening track "I Wanna Be Somebody", was an instant success, and the promo video for the latter further enhanced the group´s profile.

The music on the 10 track, 38:20 minutes long album is hard rocking heavy metal, featuring hard edged guitar riffing, blistering solo work, a pounding rhythm section (loads of anthemic galloping rhythms to be found here), and Blackie Lawless powerful "I swallowed a dozen razors" voice on top. The instrumental side of the music is well played, but slightly formulaic sounding as a result of the vers/chorus structured tracks, but the vocals and the backing- and harmony vocal arrangements make the music shine.

While few tracks on the album reaches the excellence of "I Wanna Be Somebody", which is a really powerful and relatively raw rocker, the material are generally well written and quite memorable too. Some of the anthemic choruses are infectiously catchy, and it´s hard not to pump your fist in the air and shout along. It´s very audience friendly music, and I can imagine how great the material functioned live in those days.

The album is decently produced, featuring a raw and organic sound production. The drums and especially the bass drum sound could have been handled with a bit more finesse, but overall the sound production suits the material well. So "W.A.S.P." is upon conclusion a pretty strong debut album by W.A.S.P., and a promising start to their career. Not all tracks are equally great, but all tracks are catchy and stay in your memory long after the album is over. A 3.5 star (70%) rating is deserved.

W.A.S.P. The Headless Children

Blackie Lawless and crew had been responsible for some of the most deliciously sleazy albums of the 1980s metal scene, successfully latching onto the dirtiest, filthiest side of the glam metal aesthetic whilst keeping a more purist heavy metal sound than most of their glam contemporaries. By the end of the decade, though, glam's shiny lyrca star was fading, and to their credit the group manage to pull off an extremely successful stylistic and aesthetic pivot with The Headless Children.

It's not that it's a radical departure from what has gone before musically - it's still WASP's style of heavy metal, with perhaps less emphasis than ever before on including a catchy number here and there. But lyrically, suddenly things have become surprisingly serious, Blackie Lawless revealing a thoughtful side to his writing that must have been incredibly surprising at the time.

In retrospect, of course, we've had a bunch of more serious-minded WASP releases like The Crimson Idol, so listeners coming to The Headless Children from that direction may find it seems like a solid, entertaining example of business as usual. But compared to the material preceding it, it's a radical shift in perspective that is elegantly executed. It must surely have seen like a massive artistic risk at the time, but not only is it a great album in its own right, but it also paves the way for WASP's future career.

When it comes to WASP's early sleaze metal phase, before they shifted gear to more thoughtful material like The Crimson Idol, it's truly hard to beat their self-titled debut album. Mashing up a dual lead guitar style reminiscent of a rawer, rougher Judas Priest with Blackie Lawless' vocal performance, which finds him shanking Alice Cooper with a broken Thunderbird bottle and stealing his shock rock crown, it's a delicious mashup of traditional heavy metal power and parent-shocking transgression.

This combination is best expressed on Animal (Fuck Like a Beast), which is restored to its rightful place at the start of the running order on recent reissues, but the songs which didn't get censored from the original release are all pretty strong in their own right - with School Daze being a wonderfully defiant anthem against the nonsense of high school.

Don't, therefore, let the somewhat cheesy cover art fool you; WASP might look at first glance like a glam metal band, but only because they've murdered some poor anonymous hair metal hopefuls and are wearing their skins as trophies. This is rough, dirty, primal stuff.

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 heavy metal, while songs like "The Heretic (The Lost Child)", "The Neutron Bomber", and the title cut showcase a much more depressive, somber, and beautiful 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.
