Wednesday 13 - Antidote, David Ellefson, 3 Headed Snake

Category: CD/Video Reviews


“Antidote” 4 song digital EP

 The Duke of Spook is back with a digital only EP that features 2 brand new songs alongside 2 classic covers.  

The opening track of this EP is an ode to “The Exorcist” simply titled, “Your Mother Still Sucks Cocks In Hell” and this song sounds like a brand new Murderdolls song!  Starting with a chunky drum beat this one has a fun horror punk groove and is a throw back to Wednesday’s Frankenstein Drag Queen days.  The lyrics are funny and exactly what you would expect them to be; tongue in cheek and raunchy as hell.  Loud, Fast, Unapologetic and In Your Face, this song rocks hard.

 What’s interesting about this EP is that none of it is too serious or “Necrophaze” oriented.  During the “Necrophaze” campaign Mr. 13 went harder, scarier, and more intense than ever before.  Previously Mr. 13 was one part The Ramones, two parts campy B-movie Horror fun and this EP is a throw back to those days.

 “Screwdriver 2 - The Return” is a super fast 2 minute rocker that ends so fast you need to listen to it several times over in order to get a proper shock rock fix.

 The last two songs on this EP are quirky covers and the bands take on “Devil Inside” by INXS is perhaps the most adventurous because they make the track five minutes long and chunk up the guitar parts to make it a full on metallic anthem. 

 The closer is a cover of Gary Numan’s “Films” which features Alice Cooper’s daughter Calico CooperGary Numan has been covered by Marilyn Manson, Foo Fighters, Nine Inch Nails, and Fear Factory among others ,but this particular cover is the heaviest and most haunting of them all.

 This digital only EP will be available on all streaming platforms beginning on 4/16/21

MAC SABBATH release limited edition pop-up book and vinyl.

 MAC SABBATH has revealed details on their first book, Drive Thru Metal, but don’t expect a stereotypical biography from the fast food-themed parody kings. There’s plenty of “juice” inside, albeit in the form of burgers cooking in the kitchen as the four members of MAC SABBATH take fans on a journey through a dystopian fast-food world polluted by its own waste in an innovative hybrid pop-up book.

 Mysterious MAC SABBATH frontman Ronald Osbourne comments on the book, “What’s that? A pop-up book is not what you were expecting? Well SUFFER! ….and you’re welcome.”

 Available via Poposition Press, Drive Thru Metal features illustrations by Gris Grimly, well-known for his darkly whimsical children's books and the upcoming Netflix film adaptation of his Pinocchio book, and will be available in Regular and Special Editions. Both editions are available in limited quantities, so be sure to pre-order now to reserve a copy of this piece of Drive Thru Metal history! Pre-orders are available at https://macsabbath.bigcartel.com/.

 Both editions of Drive Thru Metal include pop-up scenes highlighting “The Factory,” “The Ascension” and “Utopia” and include a special vinyl surprise with seven MAC SABBATH stories, including “Organic Funeral,” Sweet Beef” and “N.I.B.B.L.E.” The Special Edition is a super limited version complete with a foil stamped cover, a Gris Grimly art print and ketchup and mustard splattered vinyl surprise.
