Misfits: American Psycho

Sound — 10
This is the re-formed Misfits, not the originals. This album sounds alot more clean than that of the 1970's Glenn Danzig era. Michale Graves voice is superb on this album, strong and powerful he blasts his voice out on every song. He is a very underated vocalist reason being because everyone loved Danzig, not to say Graves doesnt have fans because he has ALOT! Moving on to the guitars, Doyles riffs are short and VERY sweet in most of these songs while being very strong and heavy, and Jeryy Onlys bass being loud and riddled with distortion. Dr Chuds fast and powerful drum beats helps set the energy for these song. Excellent.

The Misfits have never exactly been serious about there lyrics being a horror/punk metal band, so all of there songs are based on horror movies. Not the most inventive lyrics in the world, and some of the lyrics are so simple that they dont really mean anything. Anyone who has seen a horror movie can write a song for the Misfits.

Overall Impression — 10
This is a great album! Songs like The Hunger and Shining really get you pumping out your energy, whilst songs like Dig Up Her Bones and The Haunting just rock. A very underated album because of the fans of Danzig not moving on. Pretend thy arnt called the Misfits if you want because no matter what people say these songs do rock, and this is coming from a Danzig fan.
