Necrophaze (2019)

Wednesday 13 did not waste anytime during the end of the Condolence tour to start to work on his next project.  In between the main tour and the one he did with Cradle of Filth he and the band recorded a record called Necrophaze.

For the very first time Wednesday 13 had guest singers on his record since the first Frankenstein Drag Queens record The Late, Late, Late Show and this one has quite a few.  His idol Alice Cooper, Cristina Scabbia  (Lacuna Coil), Jeff Clayton (Anti-Seen , the famous the Confederate Crusader) and Alex Laiho (Children of Bodom). There is also a bonus track at the end of the record of remake of the metal classic form W.A.S.P. Animal (Fucks Like a Beast). In the past Wednesday 13 did do a remake of another W.A.S.P. tune called Blind in Texas.

The record was set to release at the end of September of 2019 and in the summer of 2019 in the pre-order fans had the option to also purchase action figure of the Necrophaze.

The first single was released which was called Decomposed, even though he did play the new Zodiac live during the last leg of the Condolence tour. (this will be edited as the record gets released)

Two weeks later a video trailer came out for Zodiac. Which is a 2 min clip of Wednesday 13 posing as the new villain.

Bring Your Own Blood and the title track Nekrophaze was released about a month later.

Personal View – This record is so full of goodness from beginning to the end. From the beginning intro with Alice Cooper speaking to the end of the final scream of W13 paying tribute the classic shock rock band W.A.S.P. on Animal (Fucks like a Beast) this is a trip of the Necrophaze.

I personally was concerned when Wednesday 13 announced that he would be having guest vocalists (here we go the record is going to be a radio sound record) but I could not be any further wrong. This record is a mix of everything for everyone and it is very catchy. I find my foot tapping along to every song ( the drums really stick out on this record). We have classic metal, horror punk and even a couple catchy campy tunes that we have known Wednesday to do.  My personal favorites are Bring Your Own Blood, Monster (this an amazing tune), Zodiac, Bury the Hatchet and of course Animal. But the whole damn record rocks!
