The Neon God: Part 2 - The Demise

Year: 2004
Format: CD
Label: Noise
Genre: [Heavy Metal]
Overall Rating: 7.5
Music: 7.0
Production: 8.0


We are satan's people's second part of 'The Neon God' continues in the same vein as the first part (which was released earlier this year). I wonder if Blackie Lawless is in need of money, as he released two albums in one year (both of which could have been released together as 'The Neon God'). Well, anyway this album is basic heavy metal (of which W.A.S.P. is known of).

Almost all of the songs are quite ordinary... they don't offer much new, but I must admit I quite liked some of them. Some songs had nice catchy rhythms (for example, the first track 'Never Say Die'). However, Blackie Lawless doesn't have very good voice (which is unfortunate). The second track 'Resurrector' is one of the most basic W.A.S.P. songs on this album. Songs that overshadowed others were 'Never Say Die' and 'All My Life' (also some parts of 'The Last Redemption' were good).

Production on this album has been done quite well. The recording is relatively clean (there was some background noise/fuzz on certain songs. For example, on 'All My Life' the fuzz was audible). However, there's not much to complain about the mastering (except for some slightly audible distortion). At times the levels went too high causing brief distortion... Mixing, on the other hand, could have been done better (to some extent).

W.A.S.P. fans might like this album, but I rank many albums released thus far above the Neon God. However, you're free to disagree with me (and enjoy this album)... To me it was a mediocre album with its very few moments of success.

Release date: 28.09.2004
