2 for the price of one!!!,
This review is from: W.A.S.P. / The Last Command (Audio CD)
These 2 albums represent WASP in its purest,most feral sense,raw heavy metal,with sing along anthems and thundering riffs,the sort of music peers such as KISS/COOPER/TWISTED SISTER AND MOTLEY CRUE,should have been making but weren't,compare the discs they released circa 1984 & 85,with these 2,no contest these albums win hands down.
Disc 1 Wasp (1984), classic anthems such as 'I Wanna Be Somebody ' ,'School Daze' and 'Love Machine' alongside Priest inspired metal such as 'Hellion/Tormentor',superb stuff.
Disc 2 The Last Command (1985)_ even better than the debut,again superb anthems that lodge in your haed such as 'Wild Child' and 'Blind In Texas' backed up with super album cuts as the title track and 'Widowmaker'
I would be wrong not to mention the band Holmes/Piper/Reilly & Richards who all perform magnificently but its always been about the main man 'Blackie Lawless,in truth the band would eventually disappear and ultimately become a vehicle for Lawless,so it great to enjoy this early pure WASP for what it is,a rip rolling rock band,dumb sing along anthems and heavy metal.
