KILL FUCK DIE

"Death we are, Death we've always been"
- Little Death

ALL SONGS WRITTEN BY BLACKIE LAWLESS AND CHRIS HOLMES

Written and recorded in Los Angeles during the end of 1996 and early '97, KILL, FUCK, DIE taps into the darker side of the human psyche'. It's the abstract artwork found within bruises that only a predator can see. It's the emotional release of vengeance that only the scorned knows. Produced by Blackie Lawless and engineered and mixed by Mikey Davis, KILL, FUCK, DIE incorporates modern technology such as samples, loops, and computer sequences along with driving guitars, a bombastic rhythm section, and, of course, Blackie's inimitable vocals. Bassist Michael Duda and drummer Stet Howland fill out the W.A.S.P. lineup. Brutally violent, sexual explicit, and politically incorrect, tracks like "Take The Addiction", "My Tortured Eyes", "Killahead", "Kill, Fuck, Die", "Kill your Pretty Face", "Little Death", and "The Horror" are W.A.S.P. at their over-the-top finest. After just one listen, it's rather apparent that W.A.S.P have returned to their crimson splattered roots of sex, blood, and rock n' roll.

"This was the single most difficult record I've ever had to make," says Lawless. "You look at the music I've done with Chris and then the stuff without Chris, his influence is all over this album. Chris is the single most angry man I've ever met in my life and I feed off of his anger. Chris and I started writing at his demo studio. We spent a few months just bouncing ideas off of each other. I look at songs like a puzzle in the sense that I have a vague idea where certain parts are going to go. I'm pretty good at "chop rock" because I go in with a hatchet and start moving stuff around until they feel right. It took a lot of effort to get these songs to where I felt they were there strongest."

KILL, FUCK, DIE is a new dimension in shock rock where parental warning stickers serve as toilet paper. Violently sonic and multi-textured, the ante has been upped to separate the pretenders from the originators. The music world is currently filled with flaccid alterna-crap and formulated punk but W.A.S.P have brought back a crucial element to rock n' roll that has been missing for the past several years.... danger. Subtlety has never been a W.A.S.P. strong point but with the release of KILL, FUCK, DIE, W.A.S.P. have re-written the rules for extreme rock n' roll.
