METAL IN A TURTLENECK!!!!


Well this has been in production for a good long while and it's not going to interest most of you but we are doing it any way. Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Reservoir Dog are doing a thread together. Each week we recommend an album to each other to listen to and review. Wolfy the turtleneck wearing person he is will obviously have his own brand of music he will sick on me and so will I with my own metal favorites. This is going to be fun (hopefully) for both of us and we hope you all enjoy reading.

So basically this is an album swap thread featuring only Wolfy and Rdog. I'll have my first album for him up soon. Not sure if you want links or not Wolfy if you do I could probably find some.

Album Number One:
White Zombie: La Sexorcisto: Devil Music Volume 1


This is a personal favorite of mine because I grew up with it. It's music that is befitting of any heavy metal fan and any fan of horror films in general. It's kind of like watching Faster Pussycat Kill Kill while being bludgeoned to death by Vincent Price with an electric guitar while Satan sings to you. Hope you like it. :twisted:

I feel confident that I will recommend some metal that he hasn't heard. I can dig extremely deep in the NWOBHM.

Just La Sexorcisto. Been a while, I'll give it a relisten one of these days. Been meaning to start digging into Let Sleeping Corpses Lie anyway. ^_^

Looking forward to some Hot Buttered Soul as well.

Haha, me and two friends watched it four or five times one night and laughed our asses off every time. It's still one of my favorite 90's comedies.

It's really quite simple Jedi. I give Wolfy an album, he gives me an album, we review those albums, lather, rinse, repeat.

Coincidentally, the theme song was sung by none other than Isaac Hayes. Or is that no coincedence?

Wolfy recommendation number one: Hot Buttered Soul by Isaac Hayes

When listening to Hot Buttered Soul one is instantly greeted with the soulful stylings of a truly talented vocalist and musician. My only real introduction to Isaac Hayes before listening to this album was the culinary delight of Chocolate Salty Balls. Chocolate Salty Balls is not incredibly different from what you would experience on this album in general sound. Hot Buttered Soul (wonderful fucking title) is a four song forty five minute epic of soulful sounds, love lost and afro american bravado.

The album begins with a cover song by Burt Bacharach but styled to Isaac Hayes flair. The song is like many others on the album, because it builds and builds clocking in at twelve minutes of smooth fury. Hayes deep croon and the fuzz driven guitar propel this song into the stratosphere, and is among the better soul songs I've ever heard. Hayes is often remembered for the Shaft soundtrack and the next track comes to mind the long titled boogie of Hyperbolicsyllabicsesquedalymistic is a track that would surely later inspire the likes of Parliament and Prince. I have no idea what the track is about but the african swagger presented here is something absolutely stunning and it's by far my favorite track off the album. The album then takes a very hard right turn with a ballad. I was not expecting a ballad. In all reality this is a love song that was made for Hayes to maybe have a single. However, the song is better than most singles that I've heard that are like this, it's a sweet story of a man falling in love with a girl while he is in another relationship and the rising instrumentation mixed with Hayes vocals are wonderful. The only real problem I have with the album is the final track of the album, which is the eighteen minute ode to pain in relationships By the time I get to Phoenix. I don't really mind this track that much but it's quite a bit long and drags a little. It's not a bad song though.

Overall, Hot Buttered Soul is a great album and a good first record from one Wolfgang Amadeus Elton John and I'm quite looking forward to more journeys into the soul genre and black music from the sixties because I've heard basically nothing still. Hayes is quite a good musician and this is an album that everyone should love.

I recommend Mod Hip getting it at the very least.

4.5/5
