Wednesday 13 – Calling All Corpses (2011)

“I Wanna Be… Cremated”. Sounds familiar? Well, if you’re into punk rock and The Ramones means something for you, it should.
Joseph Poole, better known as Wednesday 13 and mainly famous for his role as the frontman of the Murderdolls, are delivering his new solo material and it sounds exactly as the perfect blending of The Ramones and Alice Cooper. Horror punk? Eventually a twist of Misfits is mandatory and always part of the formula, but don’t take those horror things too seriously, this is dirty, good-old rock and roll and even the fake blood was replaced with humor. Just like “sedated” with “cremated”. 😀 Anyway, at the end we all gonna die, don’t really matter if we were good little boys and girls and avoided downloading this or that, isn’t it? Don’t looking for trouble: mp3 to mp3 and dust to dust! 😆

Most of the songs are classy punk rock themes and anthems while some have a twist of more rock – and sometimes metal – taste and approach as the title track “Calling All Corpses”, “Bad At Being Human” and “Candle For The Devil” witch reminds me of Alice Cooper’s 2000’s “Brutal Planet”. But generally, the album is pumping, high-energy punk rock. And it’s more than fair and enough!
Really, this is a nice funeral song. 🙂 After… one knife stand! 😆
