Lodi, a small borough of Bergen County, New Jersey, is just over two square miles. There’s not much to suggest that the small village would be the birthplace of a world famous, blood-soaked form of music known as horror punk. The poster child and originator of the genre, himself, has once again unleashed an evil noise on an unsuspecting world: Doyle Wolfgang Von Frankenstein’s first release, Abominator, by his eponymous band, Doyle. Released on Doyle’s own label, Monsterman Records, Abominator is a sonically thick and lyrically evil slab of metal that finds Doyle expanding in a logical progression upon the genre of music he helped create. Abominator is not the sound of some punk guitarist gone metal- it’s the roaring return of one of extreme metal’s original architects to his blood-splattered drawing board. The unmistakable sound of Doyle’s signature Annihilator guitar cuts through on every tune like a sonic fingerprint, starting with the snarling opening title track “Abominator”. The Annihilator’s tone is sharp as a butcher’s knife in the wrong hands and just as nasty- fans of the Misfits will recognize it right away. On tunes like “Headhunter” and “Land of the Dead” the riffs are relentless, and if a riff could be described in emotional terms, remorseless. “Dreamingdeadgirls” brings a blackened-blues swing, and the doom-laden “Love Like Murder” shows a healthy appreciation for all things Sabbath. “Blood Stains” moves from primal sludge to ripping off-time thrash with ease. The album is just that- an album, a cohesive and well executed piece of work that takes the listener on a journey; albeit a bloody journey to places some fear to tread. As befits songs as musically dark as Abominator‘s, the album’s lyrics are not for the faint of heart. Throughout the entire record, there is absolutely zero attempt to balance its evil with any sort of good counterpoint- penned entirely by Story (probably in blood), Abominator‘s lyrics are entirely and uncompromisingly dark. Music fans looking for feel- good anthems had best look elsewhere- those who enjoy strolling through the shadows will be greatly satisfied. Band Members ALEX “Wolfman” STORY : Vocals DOYLE WOLFGANG VON FRANKENSTEIN : Guitar Wade Murff : Drums Brandon Strate : Bass No stranger to the national stage, Indiana metal band Salem’s Childe are long-time veterans of the metal scene, with the band’s members having performed in various music projects from basements to stadiums around the US over the course the last two decades. Most recently, that experience includes their spring 2022 US tour in direct support of Misfits legendary guitar player, Doyle Wolfgang Von Frankenstein and his band Doyle. After storming their way twice across the country, winning over fans with their unique but familiar sound, and earning the respect of their touring partners, the band went back to work on new music in anticipation of releasing a new album. With influences that include Machine Head, Tool, Savatage, Lamb of God, and more, Salem’s Childe offers a hard-hitting and violently energetic mix of melody and aggression. And while those influences are resonant in the band’s sound, Salem’s Childe has been described as having a genre-defying sound that stands on its own while being able to keep the company of bands like As I Lay Dying, In Flames, Godsmack, and others. The music of Salem’s Childe has been described as a storm of thrash, groove, prog, and modern hard rock that finds itself as equally at home in the mainstream as it does the underground.
