Wrath of Killenstein
Woah...now this is weird. Not only is Wrath of Killenstein a band, but apparently Killenstein is a horrible monster out to do terrible things to your family. All joking aside, these guys have obviously gone to a lot of trouble to create something that is more of a horror show than a mere band. For the most part, I’d say that they’ve succeeded.
While comparisons to White/Rob Zombie are almost inescapable, WoK is strong enough to stand on its own. This is as good (and cheesy) as horror metal gets. This is actually a lot like the Devolution disc that I reviewed last month, but has much better song writing and production. This is actually one of the first CDs I’ve heard in some time where every song is distinct from the one that came before it. “Igniisis Dance” is some kind of bizarre waltz while “Fuchkinschtein” takes its heaviness and spirals downward. No, that’s not a reference to NIN (overrated losers that they are). “Whorella” is probably the most twisted “ballad”, and I use that term loosely, that you’ll ever hear.
