The album contains covers of Deep Purple's Burn (originally recorded for W.A.S.P's previous album Dominator, but not used for unknown reasons) and Chuck Berry's Promised Land.

  16. Helldorado

    Helldorado (2011)

    91 views

    Helldorado is the 1999 album by the American heavy metal band W.A.S.P.. The album did not receive great reviews and many of W.A.S.P.'s fans did not like vocalist Blackie Lawless's new 'screaming' approach. The songs live up to the traditional controversial W.A.S.P. style with titles such as "Dirty Balls" and "Don't Cry (Just Suck)". The seventh track, "Cocaine Cowboys", is a pro-cocaine anthem with the lyric "Cocaine cowboys never die!".


  17. Still Not Black Enough

    Still Not Black Enough (2008)

    84 views

    Still Not Black Enough is the sixth studio album by W.A.S.P. (seventh album overall), first released in June 1995 in Japan only. It was not released in the U.S. until August 1996 through Castle Records. Still Not Black Enough was originally slated for release as a Blackie Lawless solo album but due to the heavy content, Blackie changed his mind and decided to released it as a W.A.S.P. album, which had also been the case for The Crimson Idol. Ironically as well, Still Not Black Enough is a sort of spiritual successor to The Crimson Idol, bearing a strong resemblance with it as far as sound and lyrical themes are concerned. However, instead of telling the story of the fictional character Jonathan, this album is mostly a collection of songs about Blackie Lawless himself. It goes into issues involving the death of his mother and the agony and madness he went through just after The Crimson Idol World Tour.

    67 views

    Live...In The Raw is the first live album by W.A.S.P. (fourth album overall), released in 1987.
