Murderdolls "My Dark Place Alone"

Biography

Rock 'n' roll is dangerous again, thanks to Murderdolls and Women and Children Last, their sophomore album for Roadrunner Records.

Due out this August, Women and Children Last is a dirty dose of whiskey-soaked riffs, satanically sleazy solos and infectiously invasive choruses. Which means it’s what the Murderdolls do best, but even better (and filthier) this time ... Read more in Amazon's Murderdolls Store

5.0 out of 5 stars Still a classic song! 28 July 2003
By Sian
Format:Audio CD
Its almost a global fact that White Wedding is a classic tune, in any way, shape or form, and I think the Murderdolls have only added to that, by spicing it up with guitars and glam. I feel this gives an edge to the song, bringing a touch of modernization without losing any of the original vibe. Its a cover version with a difference, in that it doesn't blandly stick to the original like superglue, but it doesn't deviate too markedly from it, thus retaining the merits that made the song popular and loveable in the first place.
The B-sides are also strong songs in their own right, so all in all I would say its definately worth the cash on this one!

4.0 out of 5 stars White Wedding 19 July 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is a wonderful version of the Billy Idol song, White Wedding. It is done in true Murderdolls style...it is very powerful...as with all murderdolls songs...but a little toned down from what they normally do (a little less angsty) Wednesday 13's voice is as raw and powerful as as always. The guitars aren't maybe just as distorted,loud and detuned as normal...but that compliments the song!All together this is a really great song preformed by a fantastic band!

5.0 out of 5 stars It's a Nice day for the Murderdolls.... 28 July 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
After an amazing year the Murderdolls have released their first (unlimited avalable) single ... White Wedding. It's a great cover of the Billy Idol classic and is helping to bring the fun back into the music industry. It's also proving to be quite a sucess.
Featuring members from Slipknot, (the now deceased) Frankenstein Drag Queens from Planet 13, Dope and Synical this monster of a band have done a great job at this cover with a great solo in the middle, although like the original, something which is being missed out on in the current mainstream music and it's nice to see it returning back.
It's also worth getting this for the bonus tracks and the enhanced sections. Definately one of my favourite songs out so far this year and I will be looking forward to future releases from the Murderdolls.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice day for a White Wedding? 18 July 2003
Format:Audio CD
Now, we all hate it when people do covers because they always sound terrible, it shows the artist(s)lack of creativity and nothing can sound better than the original, right? Well, wrong actually.
We are all familiar with the 80's version by Billy Idol but this is White Wedding for the new glam generation of rock and roll. This is a white wedding with a pounding, driving drum beat, with a powerful vocalist, with layers of guitar and a dirty bass sound; all the things that Billy Idol's version lacked. The Murderdolls have twisted White Wedding to their own style and left the original sounding bland and dull. This isn't a simple note for note cover of a classic song, this is a fresh remake pulsing with new life.
The other two songs on the single are in typical Murderdolls fashion - offensive, catchy and fun. Like it or not you will find yourself absent mindly singing "I love to say f***" after one listen and nodding along to "I take drugs". It's worth the money just to see The Dolls poke fun at American Idol in the video for White Wedding featured on it too. So ban all covers? Yes. Ban all remakes? Not unless they're done properly with this as its example.
