ALBUM: Murderdolls – Women And Children Last

Release Date: August 31st, 2010
Label: Roadrunner Records
Website: www.murderdollsband.com
MySpace: www.myspace.com/murderdollsband

Rating:

Best known for their cover of Billy Idol‘s ‘White Wedding’ and their debut single ‘Dead In Hollywood’ back in 2002, Murderdolls has been a project on a very long hiatus, shoved aside for 8 years whilst members Joey Jordison and Wednesday 13 focused on their other projects. They also had other members back then too, only to decide with the sophomore album they should stick to what and who they know for a more refined, stable and stronger album and band.

Though on the plus side this removal of certain members minimalises dysfunctionality present in their early days, the now two-man horror punk project doesn’t really offer anything new or refreshing despite the huge time gap from album one to album two. ‘Women And Children Last’ has the same ideas and impression that ‘Beyond The Valley Of The Murderdolls’ brought at the start of the decade.
