14:29 - LuciferOfGayness Is there anywhere I can read about posting here? I cant get up to graphical standards with my posts.
14:20 - Apothecary So I have an opportunity to catch Clipping in Miami next month. Holy shit
13:58 - Hex_Omega Woohoo 'As Autumn Calls' and 'Quartz' added. Finally bands from my list.
08:11 - Mr. Strawberry Good ! Enuff z'nuff is releasing a new album in Dec. I'm expecting something which is unexpected. Chip is the only old member left, "Strength" is still one of my best album in 90's as Donnie's vocals are damn good.
06:18 - Fearmeister Its very different. They moved away from the black metal sound and embraced a synth heavy occult metal style. Im really digging it
06:10 - Verdun_sc Zemial guy and the main guy are brothers, in fact! I hope that Agatus is as good as the first two from Agatus.
06:01 - Fearmeister Its actually an old band that just put something out in 14 years. Zemial guy is one of the two members and you can see the influence
Are you back? Good, because I'm about to get started. The basic structure of this album is a fun, simplistic and catchy industrial album. This is nothing you haven't seen before; your standard forty minute album with thirteen, three-ish minute tracks. The only thing that differentiates this from any other industrial album is the awful album title, and immature album cover. Apart from those two differences, this is just another, sub-par album: repetitive songs, cheesy synths, and even worse lyrics.
What's not to love?
I mean really, this is a catchy slab of music that makes my toe tap. Sure I probably wouldn't pick it off my shelf and play it every single day, but this is far from being terrible. In fact, I'm even going to go out and say, I like Satanic Pop Metal. There, happy now?
But really, if this album was titled anything but, I'm sure it would not be getting the rap that it has. It's funny to see that something as small as the cover, or title, can sabotage a perfectly fine album. It's almost saddening to think that most of the people bashing this, probably haven't even heard it past the second track. In the end, Satanic Pop Metal is decent, if you give it a chance.
If that video is anything to go by then this is far too straightforward and functional to be given less than 5 really. It's so straight up and inoffensive that it practically begs for an average score, rather than a negative one.
