Lab Overview

Famous Monsters is the the 5th studio album from Misfits.The second one post departure of singer and founder Glenn Danzig, the 18-tracker is propulsive, straight forward punk, with beefy guitar, pulsating bass, and pounding drums backing up Michale Graves vocals. The horror and sci-fi influences run abound, of course. Check out the shocking and/or hilarious "Helena": "If I cut off your arms and cut off your legs / Would you still love me anyway?" In addition to the deranged songwriting, the tempo pick-up at the midpoint of the song is exhilarating. "Saturday Night" is also twisted, yet imaginative, as Graves, in his best attempt at a ballad, laments the fact that he had something to tell his girlfriend, right after killing her. It's a fun, energetic ride throughout, a solid collection of punk rock that showcases the band charging on, despite Danzig's exit that had casted doubt in a lot people's minds. Other highlights include: "Scarecrow Man," "Scream," and "Forbidden Zone."
