On Golgotha, W.A.S.P. are staying true to the biblical horror stories they employed on Babylon (2009): the name-giving place of skulls is the hill Jesus Christ was crucified upon. Faithful Blackie Lawless fans had to wait for new material for six years – and this album is damn well worth the wait!
Following the path established with Babylon and Dominator, Golgotha is soaring to new heights with highly melodic metal anthems that also feature soaring balladesque moments of searing guitar, like the emotive grandeur of Miss You, complete with a stunning Pink Floyd-ian solo.
A timeless and surprising slab of Metal that’s a real return to form and proves once more how important W.A.S.P. are to the scene! (9)
Out Oct 2nd on Napalm Records
