Pure Metal: W.A.S.P. - The Neon God: Part 2 - The Demise
By Dustin Hupe 

Blackie Lawless is back again with a follow up to the last album. It's clear by listening to this album that W.A.S.P. can still produce something enjoyable, however I miss the songs about sex and booze. Where did all this meaning of life stuff come from? I'm not saying that this album sucks, in fact it is far from sucking, but they fail to represent the reckless disregard for authority that they once stood for.

The W.A.S.P. sound is still intact but on a slightly more mellow note. You can forget about F***ing like a beast, this time it's all about melodic guitar riffs. In fact there was more music than lyrics even in the 13 min 30 sec song "The Last Redemption". But as stated before it is enjoyable and it is well worth a listen.

You may remember the album Crimson Idol from earlier in their career, Neon God is a big story also. In part one it was the creation of a monster and in part too (this one) it is the fall of the beast. The entire album is littered with keyboards and sounds that remind you of "The Who"(see track 4 "Clockwork Mary"). This album alone is good, but to fully enjoy and understand what it's about, you should check out part one as well.
