The Neon God: Part 2 - The Demise (Sanctuary Records)

By: Mike SOS

Throughout his illustrious career, Blackie Lawless has always gladly raised a middle finger to the establishment, challenged authority, and fought the powers that be. On the second installment of his rock opera The Neon God Blackie and crew once again trail boldly down that road. Sounding like the vintage WASP of old, only now with a lifetime of experience at their dispose, the nine tracks adorning Part 2 - The Demise wrap up Lawless' grandiose parable in true form. Emblazoned with a ferocious wall of sound and fury, the larger than life guitar work and grandiose heavy metal rhythms of "The Demise" and "Tear Down the Walls" not only work within the framework of the story, but also have no problem standing on their own merit as ass-kicking hard rock anthems. Whether you're a casual fan or a diehard, this disc proves that WASP is still bucking the system while laying down prime slabs of glorious heavy metal.
