W.A.S.P.: First Blood... Last Cuts (Capitol advance tape) KK

Paul Elliott, Kerrang!, 23 October 1993

'I'LL DO whatever I want to you/I'll nail your ass to the sheets'. Blackie Lawless slobbers on W.A.S.P.'s controversial first single. 'Animal (F**k Like A Beast)'. For this nasty rapist innuendo, Lawless deserved a public flogging, although there is at least some consolation in seeing W.A.S.P.'s career go down the toilet. Blackie pulled the chain himself with The Crimson Idol, surely the naffest concept album of all time.
