Women And Children Last
Released: 2010, Roadrunner Records
Reviewer: Celtic Bob
Wednesday 13 and Joey Jordison return with WOMEN AND CHILDREN LAST who’s title is an obvious take on VanHalen’s WOMEN AND CHILDREN FIRST album. In pure Wednesday 13 fashion some of the lyrics are twisted takes on everyday sayings and figures of speech.
Another collection of horror filled music from one of the few artists out there releasing quality music in this particular genre. If you are unfamiliar with Wednesday 13 and his music then think of Alice Cooper but with a sick and twisted mind. Wednesday takes the whole Shock Rock to a whole new level. The music is borderline between Rock and Hard Rock with a slight Punk edge to it. The vocal’s are a bit raspy but are well suited for this style of music. In all honesty, would you want a singer with a perfectly smooth voice signing these lyrics? I think not.
One of the best albums of 2010 thus far.
