The best punk-rock album of the nineties.
on 9 November 1999
After a fourteen year absence, New Jersey's most ghoulish sons return. Alright, there's no Glenn Danzig but who cares? Michale Graves turns in an impressive performance, not once trying to impersonate the Evil Elvis, but putting his own spin on the classic Misfits sound, which has considerably beefed-up during their absence. Spooky intro "Abominable Dr.Phibes" gives way to the brutal thrash/punk metal title track and from then on, it's heads-down-see-you-at-the-finish-line. Every song is a gem, but highlights include "Don't Open 'Till Doomsday", "Dig Up Her Bones", "Walk Among Us", "From Hell They Came" and the 50's rock n'roll inspired "Day of the Dead". If you've only heard of the Misfits through dodgy Metallica covers, it's time to get down with the groovy ghoulies themselves. Welcome back, boys!
