MURDERDOLLS Beyond The Valley Of The Murderdolls (2002 US 15-track CD album featuring Joey Jordison of Slipknot hype stickered picture sleeve)

Amazon.co.uk

When Joey Jordinson, the diminutive drummer of Slipknot, has time off from Iowa's finest, he straps on a guitar as one of the Murderdolls--a pulp-rawk five-piece that draws inspiration from slasher flicks, Alice Cooper and Twisted Sister on Beyond the Valley of the Murderdolls. Boasting song titles like "She Was A Teenage Zombie" and "Kill Miss America", it's fair to say that this debut isn't to be taken completely seriously. But the trash-metal aesthetic is firmly entrenched in the annals of rock & roll, and it's this very vein that the Murderdolls are out to suck from. Jordinson and Tripp Eisen of industrial metal freaks Static X form a double-pronged guitar assault that simultaneously evokes the flamboyant fretwork of glam-metal and the gutsy roar of the Sex Pistols guitarist Steve Jones, but the focus is surely on singer Wednesday 13--a super-camp frontperson that sings lyrics like "I'd rather cut you than the wedding cake / Your bloody guts on my rented tux" ("Die My Bride") in a voice that sounds like Mötley Crüe's Vince Neil after the overdose. It's a brave move, but if the sound of 1980s hair-metal prompts an involuntary sneer, you may find the joke here quickly wears thin. --Louis Pattison

It would be very difficult to review this album without first mentioning Slipknot, The Murderdolls are the brainchild of Joey Jordison from Slipknot and Trip Eisen (Static X.) The album is however nothing like the metal giants, with songs like Die my bride, B-movie scream queen and Kill Miss America, the whole thing is a tribute to old horror movies and takes its influence more from the Frankenstein Drag Queens from the planet 13, of which singer Wednesday 13 is the singer of the Murderdolls.
The album reverts back to its roots and whilst listening to the songs the lyrics are devilishly funny. Just buy this record if you want rock music merged with horror movies, and there is nothing like this out there today and hell its just good music, so buy it anyway. It's worth it just to hear the song 'die my bride:'
"i'd rather cut you up than the wedding cake"

With Murderdolls being the side project of members of Slipknot and Static-X, I expected this album to be very heavy, featuring crushing guitar riffs and messed up lyrics. However it's an easy listening album that you couldn't really call metal, but more punk-metal. The lyrics are funny and the riffs light but brilliantly played. It's also surprising that Joey Jordison plays guitars in this band, unlike his trademark drumming as he does in Slipknot. The drumming however could have been taken from Joey playing in Slipknot as it's very heavy in places.
The album starts with the song 'Slit my wrist' which is an awesome opening song and sets the tone for the rest of the album. It's got a brilliant riff, great drumming and solid lyrics. One thing you will notice from the start is how similar Wednesday 13's voice is to Marilyn Manson. However this isn't a bad thing as it adds depth to the music, as a true screaming voice such as Corey Taylor of Slipknot would probably ruin the comedy of the lyrics.
Probably one thing that makes this album so good id variety. Although the songs are all quite light and funny, they are all different in their own ways. Each riff and melody is original and some songs such as 'People hate me' and 'Die my bride' are almost legends in their own right as they mix very heavy druming and guitar riffs with funny lyrics, which make the songs very good indeed. The only problem with the album is the ends of nearly all the songs follow a similar pattern of chorus/guitar solo/chorus.
On the whole this is a superb album and if you're a fan of heavy punk, light metal, Joey Jordison, Tripp Eisen or Marilyn Manson you should consider buying this album and i guarantee you will not be disappointed.

I bought this album after hearing the (unreleased, sadly) track 'lets f*ck' and 'dead in hollywood'. The murderdolls, as everyone knows, are a glam/goth/humour band with Slipknots drum machine Joey Jordinson as their main feauture and Tripp Elsen of static-x as his six-stringing contempary (sadly, Tripp left after completeing the album). But as has been pointed out time and time again, this is not slipknot unmasked.
The murderdolls are a reasonably unique band, although their elements are not hard to identify (take a pinch of Alice Cooper...stir in some Marilyn Manson....). However what makes them a proper stand-out band is their use of solos, in every song. Solos are something I have a huge weakness for, and although these aren't the best examples in the world, they're still very good, and it shows that the band cares about what they play rather than simply stringing some riffs together (other modern bands, take note). Wednesday 13, previously of Frankenstein Drag Queens from the Planet 13 (and incidentally, some of the Murderdolls songs ARE lifted from the aforementioned band) puts on an excellent vocal performance, suiting the lyrics perfectly whether he puts on a deathly shreik or a low growl, or anything in between. The lyrics themselves range from the provocative to the ludicrous, but always manage to be hilarious (assuming you have a somewhat morbid humour) especially 'people hate me' which satirizes nearly everything metal stands for ('now I'm singing out of key, the god of your TV, and all your children worship me......). Worthy of a mention also is the stomach-turning 'grave robbing USA' which had me in stitches straight from the start.
But enough of the lyrics and more on the music.

I bought this album being a fan of Slipknot and static-x. Firstly, it sounds nothing like either of these bands. Its fast, punk rock. The lyrics are a riot, songs about graverobbing and zombies walking the earth. Tongue in cheek and hilariously tacky. The music is fun to listen to, better than your standard fare depressing metal. An excellent CD well worth the price.

this is an excellent album. it put the fun back into heavy metal! whatever genre your into you can't but help love this collection of catchy,funny rocking tunes.if you do like it, check out Wednesday 13's albums too(he's the murderdolls singer).p.s. it's worth getting the version of this album with the 5 bonus tracks as they include a great cover of 'white wedding' and the song that's become a murderdolls anthem 'i love to say f*ck'
