Posted in Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, Metal, Music, news, rock music, world news with tags , , , on May 26, 2017 by Metal Odyssey

As reported on W.A.S.P. Nation (Official)

Check out the first official trailer for W.A.S.P.‘s upcoming 25th anniversary release “RE-IDOLIZED”:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_JXa5uGR05s&feature=youtu.be


In 1992 W.A.S.P. released “The Crimson Idol”. It’s the story of Jonathan Aaron Steele, an abused child looking for love. Discovering music years later, he rises to international superstardom. Later followed by a catastrophic fall.

2017 marks the 25th anniversary of the original release, which is still considered to be the best album of W.A.S.P.‘s career, and one of the greatest concept albums of all times! “The Crimson Idol” undoubtedly belongs in every metal head’s record collection. The album about the anti-hero Jonathan Steele was originally intended to be accompanied by a movie, with several hundred hours of film that were shot to create approximately 50 minutes of movie footage.

This film has never been released – Until now!

Napalm Records proudly announces “RE-IDOLZED”, the 25th anniversary of the iconic hit album plus the original “The Crimson Idol” movie on DVD and Blu-ray! For the first time EVER as originally intended, released in one product!

“RE-IDOLIZED” will be available on Blu-ray, DVD, CD, and vinyl later this year!

LONG LIVE W.A.S.P.

Metal Odyssey’s METAL Pick Of The Day Is: W.A.S.P. “Scream” (Official Lyric Video / Napalm Records)

W.A.S.P. – Metal warrior Blackie Lawless has returned with his legendary band W.A.S.P., with a towering follow-up to 2009’s Babylon studio album. The new studio album is titled Golgotha and the lyric video for the opening track, Scream, is below. Golgotha was released back on October 9th, via the great Napalm Records.

I would classify Scream as a more than a subtle religious song, lyrically referencing to the crucifixion of Jesus Christ, without saying his name. Heck, the images of the three crosses and the album title of Golgotha backs up my thought there. Maybe I am totally wrong, who knows? I like this song very much and yet it’s not the greatest W.A.S.P. song ever recorded either. I guess that tells me just how powerful the back catalog of W.A.S.P. songs are!

I, like my Best Metal Buddy Scott Coverdale have been waiting for this new studio album to land; now that it’s here we are very, very psyched! I am pleased with the tempo of this song and the trademark W.A.S.P. sound is truly intact. Blackie‘s vocals sound sharp and the visuals featured on this lyric video are freaking cool as all hell. Strange as it sounds, I find the tempo and melody of Scream to be kinda similar to Night Ranger‘s song: Don’t Tell Me You Love Me. Perhaps it’s just me.

I hope you enjoy this song and lyric video as much as I do. Metal Be Thy Name. – Stone

W.A.S.P. To Release Golgotha on October 2nd 
via Napalm Records.

Almost six years have passed since the world saw a new studio album from Metal Icons W.A.S.P. This October 2nd, the wait ends, as Blackie Lawless and the legendary rockers W.A.S.P. will release their long-awaited new album and Napalm Records debut Golgotha.

Frontman Blackie Lawless on the new album Golgotha: 
“There are times in any band’s career that somehow all things mesh together. Their experiences, influences, and personal timing bring them into a common space. This has happened with this record. Four years in the making has provided direction, but even greater reflection. Golgotha, where Christ was crucified – Hebrew for “the place of the skull”.”

Golgotha is available for pre-order from the Napalm Records Webstore in North America and Europe.

W.A.S.P. came out of the Los Angeles Metal scene in 1982 gaining notoriety for their shock rock antics. With a career spanning over 3 decades, 17 world tours, and now their 15th studio album, they are a metal band that has evolved in maturity without having lost their signature sound, unlike many of their peers from their origins. Golgotha will continue down the path that 2007’s Dominator and 2009’s Babylon started on, both in production style and theme. Years in the making, Golgotha will undoubtedly lead the listeners on the emotionally epic undertaking that W.A.S.P. has become acclaimed for!
