How witty of a name is Dr. Acula? I mean, look at it, they’ve taken the name of a highly popular horror character created years and years ago, and made it appear as if it’s a completely different name of someone who has a PhD in something. Actually, it’s not all that witty at all, and any witticisms or humour you can get out of the band’s name is where it ends.
Let’s be frank though, from their previous release ‘Slobology’ in 2009 Dr. Acula have taken a huge leap forward. Gone are the completely inappropriate and cringing pig squeals, gone are the releases that comprise solely of songs that don’t even come close to resembling any form of a song. ‘The Social Event Of The Century’ seems to be one of the few times where Dr. Acula are actually trying to make some form of effort. What a shame that their efforts go in complete vain.
