Wednesday 13 – Bootleg Live March of the Damned (2009)

This show was recorded during the Skeletons tour back in 2009. The sounds is crisp and video is not bad but can be a little shaky. The set list for the show is amazing and it is nice to see Wednesday 13 playing the guitar while doing the vocals. Not much on stage props for this show except the gun for Rambo but the show is a classic with the encore of a Kiss classic.

Wednesday 13- Re-Animated (2011)

After the success of Skeletons and the tour Wednesday 13 thought he would treat the fans with mixes of songs from that record. The cover of the record is the same as Skeletons except is a green tinged to it.

The money from this record and the Murderdoll tour of Women and Children Last in 2011 went to the Red Cross to support the people of Japan after the 8.9 earthquake.

Personal View – I’m personally like songs the way they were intended on Skeletons. I like my metal as metal and I have never been a re-mix fan of any band.  But it is a nice keep sake in the collection.

Wednesday 13 – Skeletons (2008)

Wednesday 13 hit the studio again in 2008 to work on his third solo record called Skeletons. It was a heavier and darker tone than previous efforts from him. An EP called Bloodwork was to be released before it both arrived at the same time. Skeletons was heavier as a whole songs like Put Your Death Mask on, All American, Dead Carolina Massacre and Gimme Gimme Bloodshed showed the audience some of this.

Wednesday 13 took his band and built it from scratch again as Nate “H8” Manor joined as bass, past drummer Racci Shay returned so did Jamie Hoover on guitar (was bass before). During the tour Jamie Hoover was replaced by Jason Trioxin and Racci Shay was replaced with Johnny Chops.

The tour was a darker show and one of the shows was filmed and recorded for the Fuck it, We’ll do it Live DVD/CD combo.

Jamie Hoover – Guitar, Piano

Personal View – From the Rob Zombie like opening of Scream Baby Scream this record runs into some pretty heavy and dark paths.  The title track Skeletons runs much like a classic Alice Copper song and there is no holding back punches with tracks like Put Your Death Mask On, All American Massacre, Gimmie Gimmie Bloodshed and even No Rabbit In The Hat. Some of the material like Not Another Teenage Anthem and From Here To The Hearse have some Fang Bang influence but overall this record is a classic.
