Wednesday 13 “Necrophaze” review

Artist: Wednesday 13

Album: Necrophaze

Record Label: Nuclear Blast Records

Release Date: September 27th

Riddle me this, what do Rob Zombie, Misfits and Alice Cooper all have in common? If you answered they all use horror movie themes and elements in their music and live performances then you have won a gold star. Give yourself a round of applause.

But leading the way in the Horror Metal charge is the “King of the Creeps”, “The Duke of Spook” Wednesday 13 who has been a main stayer on the horror punk scene since 1992 with the formation of Maniac Spider Trash, before forming Frankenstein Drag Queens from Planet 13. Wednesday then went on to find success with Murderdolls (featuring Slipknots Joey Jordison) and a stellar solo career.

Wednesday’s signature style shines through in his new album “Necrophaze”, which similar to his previous release “Condolences” which from start to finish is killer track after killer track. The album covers a wide range of topics from horror movies to serial killers, and is also the first Wednesday 13 album to feature guest artists such as Alice Cooper, Cristina Scabbia from Lacuna Coil and Alexi Laiho from Children of Bodom.

Watch/Listen to “Necrophaze” here:

Stand out tracks include, well to be honest every single track on this album is a stand out. From Bring your own Blood to Animal, picking just a couple of tracks does this album no justice what so ever. One of the more interesting tracks on “Necrophaze” is Zodiac, which focuses on the infamous Zodiac Killer who committed murders in Northern California through the 1960’s and ‘70’s.

“Necrophaze” is an album that is not going to disappoint. Wednesday 13 brings the madness once again with this 12/10 album. Make sure you either have pre ordered one of the special limited edition bundles or go down to your local music store for your copy, as this is one album you must get your hands on.
