Wolfman Chuck is someone who any reader of this site should be familiar with. Whether it be our Stereo Terror review of his 2014 album Bitch Boy, or his split with Robb Goblin and Afterlife Love Machine, creatively titled Wolfman Chuck Meets Robb Goblin and Afterlife Love Machine. Or if you aren’t a long time reader, you will surely have seen our recent Deadhouse Interview with the man himself. And in that recent interview we discussed his newer project, Wolfman And The Brimstone Boys. Well, I have been lucky enough to obtain a copy of their demo EP, entitled Back Alley Abortion Jamstage Demo 2016, so it was inevitable that we would be seeing a review of the project here on The Deadhouse.
I should note before I get into the meat of this review, that this album is an incredibly rough demo. So be aware of that going forward with both how the review is, in addition to if you pick yourself up a copy.
Starting out with a humorous intro Cock Gun / Necrophilia Paradise transitions from one intro song to another, and while they would be better suited as separate tracks altogether, they certainly do the job just fine. The latter half of the intro can be viewed as the proper first song, and who doesn’t love a good ol’ ditty about making love to the dead? Tonight I Love You is a quick and little “love gone wrong” type of story.
Guns Don’t Kill People plays on the whole saying about the title that everyone knows. Again, just a quick fun song that with some expanding upon itself and production could become a crowd favorite. Wolfbitch starts slow until about the 30 second mark when the whole band gets moving at a rapid pace with lyrics that I can’t really present without noting that this review is for adult eyes only. You can expect to see the lyrics from the whole demo hitting our lyrics section in the near future.
Boathouse is yet another love song, with lyrics referring to the perfect burial spot for a dear loved one who may or may not have just been stabbed until she dies. The demo closes out with Show You I Care which has a nice upbeat sound to it, which collides with some more morbid lyrics from the brain of everyone’s favorite Wolfman. It is a good way to close the demo out, leaving the listener wanting more….if they have a sense of humor and can appreciate the lyrics throughout.
Wolfman And The Brimstone Boys show a lot of potential on this 6 track demo, and I can say that I look forward to an official release in the future. With a little slick production and expanding on the ideas within, anyone with a morbid sense of humor who isn’t easily offended may find their new favorite band.
Stay tuned to The Deadhouse as you know we will be taking a look at the band’s first official release once it comes down the pipeline. In the meantime, make sure to head over to the band’s official Facebook page and show them some love, which will allow you to remain updated on the band’s antics as well. And grab yourself a copy of the demo from the bands BandCamp page!
