wasp2015promo_638Here is the second of two Singles of thew week for today as I promised you. One of my all time favorite bands from the 80’s was metal band W.A.S.P. which features Blackie Lawless (the only surviving member of the band). The band is gearing up to release a brand new record in Golgotha which also happens to be the band’s fifteenth studio record via Napalm Records on October 2ND. The band has unleashed their first single to get fans ready for the release in the track Scream and here is what Blackie Lawless had to say about the track, “Scream was the track we felt really opened the album with the kick we were looking for. The animation on the video is outstanding and truly takes you on a trip. ‘You’re gonna cry if you want me, You’re gonna lie if you love me!’ It’s enough to make you wanna scream!” The track is amazing from beginning to end and it’s the typical songwriting quality that would expect from Blackie as it drives you from beginning to end. Blackie back at the Sweden Rock Festival in 2014 talked about the origin of the album title Golgotha saying, “Golgotha’ is Hebrew for place of the skull, and it’s the hill where Christ was crucified. And it’s interesting, when you see a lot of bands going around using Satanic images or images of death and things like that, and I’m thinking, all they need to do is look at the source, ’cause it’s right there. I mean, if you want death, there’s enough to go around there.” Drummer Mike Dupke recently left the band, but never fear because he has been replaced by Yngwie Malmsteen drummer Patrick Johansson.
