3.0 out of 5 stars Misfits Mk 3 finally deliver 28 Sep 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Foreword

Formed 1977 Lodi/New Jersey by Glenn Danzig (vocals/electric Piano) Jerry Only (bass) & Manny (drums) The Misfits released first single `Cough/Cool' on Blank Records the same year. The bands early music was hard to define beyond punk. Strange tales of violence & sex or humorous ditty's inspired by horror & Sci Fi films. In a few short years their sound was refined and came to be known as Horrorpunk- an entirely new sub genre. The Misfits guitar & drum personal changed frequently throughout the late 70's as they released a number of singles on Danzig's Plan 9 label as well as recording and shelving masterpiece debut album- Static Age. This changed in 1980 when Jerry's younger brother `PC Doyle' replaced then Guitarist Bobby Steele and remained until Misfits disbanded three years later.

With the arrival of Doyle the bands image and music would crystallize. In the year prior Misfits adopted the Crimson Ghost as their logo and now dressed in uniform tight black jeans, black engineer boots, black leather waistcoats ft. gigantic metal studs and grew out their dyed black fringes combing them into ghoulish Devilock's which can be credited to Jerry. By the early 1980's Misfits had built up a cult following across the states through sporadic touring and mailing out freebies DIY style via `The Fiend Club'. Some nights they would play in front of a thousand some nights 50 odd and shows were often violent- on occasion ending prematurely with the band fighting the audience. After releasing classic 1982 album Walk Among Us & recording 1983's hardcore/speed metal styled Earth A.D. LP, Glenn grew tired of the brothers limited abilities so they played one final show at Greystone Hall / Detroit on October 29th 1983 and called it a day.

5.0 out of 5 stars . 2 Feb 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
was told by many people not to buy this as its not the misfits. i love this band and have done for over twenty years and any one saying this isnt the misfits hasnt listend to them in the past. it doesnt have the mayhemic feel of the early records or the well rounded metal edge that american psycho has. this though is pure misfits and totally onlys dream of what he wants them to be. his voice is abit weak which sells the some songs short but still makes the hairs stand up on the back of my kneck on the first listen like every thing else they have ever done.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not their best, but still enjoyable. 7 May 2012
Format:Audio CD
Before I get into this review, I'd like to say that I am not a total Danzig era fanatic. I enjoy all periods of the misfits history, so I will not be biased in my opinion.
This is the first album from the misfits since the superb 2003 covers album, project 1950. As well as the first album of original material from the band since the also excellent 1999 album famous monsters.
So the question now is, how does this new album compare to the misfits previous albums. While it is no way near as good as their early albums such as the legendary walk among us, static age, or even famous monsters, this is still a fun album overall.

1.The devil's rain- The album's opener has a dark, midpaced feel to it. The chorus is catchy, and while this track lacks any real energy, its still a decent song. 7/10
2.Vivid red- This is one of the weaker songs on the album, while it has a cool evil feel to it, the song just doesn't grab me that much, there's nothing that makes me want to mosh or sing along to it. 5/10
3.Land of the dead- This track is a rerecorded song from the single released in 2009, and this is one of the best tracks on the album, this is the first track with any real energy, a good choice for a single. 8/10
4.The black hole- This song is probably my favourite song on the album, this track is cheesy and great fun to listen to. The vocals are cool, and the chorus is brilliant, overall a great track. 9/10
5.Twilight of the dead- Another great track here, this song was the b-side to the land of the dead single, and in my opinion is better than the land of the dead song. It is another cheesy, horror influenced slice of fun punk. 9/10

4.0 out of 5 stars the Misfits are back! 31 Mar 2012
Format:Audio CD
or what's left of 'em. The Devil's Rain is the first studio album by the Misfits since 2003's 50's and 60's rockabilly covers album Project 1950. The Devil's Rain and Project 1950 both share one common characteristic. Jerry Only is the sole remaining original Misfit, and it's also the reason I initially passed on this album, but I'm glad I came back and revisited it.
This is not the Misfits of old, and by Misfits of old, I'm referring to the Danzig era. It's somewhat reminiscent to the American Psycho and Famous Monsters albums with less distortion. It's a mish mash of punk and metal, and they pull it off quite well. While no Danzig or Graves, Jerry Only holds his own. No over the top vocals, but he gets the job done. It's a pretty damn good album, in my opinion anyways, but is it a real Misfits album? ehh? I'm leaning more towards no, and I'm guessing that's why there are so many 1 star reviews. It's just not that bad of a record. I suggest you check out some of the tracks below and see for yourself.

All I am going to say is check it out. There are some really catchy tunes on this, short and sweet. I don't think Jerry Only does a bad job of singing either. Read more

This album is so good! Please do not go into this album expecting danzig-era or american psycho-era misfits. Its a combination of the two with a 50's rock and roll feel. Read more
