Sound — 10
The sound is awesome on this CD. They have a special music style: it's like speed metal and classical music on the same album. How the drummer drums, so fast! I just love it. Joey Jordison and Trippeisen came from other awesome groups: Joey Jordison is guitar player at Slipknot and Tripp. plays with Static-X. If you want to buy a special album, buy Beyond the Valley of the Murderdolls!
Lyrics — 8
The lyrics are very depressive, but they are pretty cool. Songs like Slit My Wrists an Grave Robbing USA are very fantastic. The singer has a rare voice, I like his voice-sound, but there are much better singers (Bon Jovi, Bon Scott) but then in a other genre. In Twisted Sister, one old childhoodsong 'Old Mcdonald Had A Farm' opens the song, That's great!
Overall Impression — 8
It compare's a little bit with the Vermillion-song of Slipknot. It has the same composer, that's not really rare then. I think the most impressive songs are: Slit My Wrist, 197666 and Love At First Fright, because they are very melodic. I love the drummer's skills on this album. If I lost it, I certainly buy a new one!
