CD Reveiw: Doyle “Abominator”

Monster Man Records
Tracks: 11

Our Score: 4 out of 5 stars

Former Misfits/Gorgeous Frankenstein guitarist Doyle Wolfgang VonFrankenstein is back with a brand new album titled “Abominator”. The album is the debut release from the group simply titled “Doyle” which members consists of guitarist Doyle Wolfgang Von Frankenstein, vocalist Alex Story, bassist Left Hand Graham and former Misfits drummer Dr. Chud. The album is being released via Monster Man Records and features 11 all new tracks by the ghoulish group.

Half Danzig era Misfits meets early Pantera. That is what you can expect from the debut album by the hulking monster known as Doyle. Though this is not Doyle’s first venture outside of the “Misfits” moniker it is definitely his most promising and powerful. Vocalist Alex Story’s gritty style fits perfectly with Doyle’s riffing which appears to be at the top of its game. Tracks such as “Abominator” and “Mark of the Beast” are perfect examples of this as both tracks feature intricate riffs that border on the verge of metal while tracks like “Learn to Bleed” and “Headhunter” are more rooted in the classic punk genre.

From start to finish “Abominator” is pedal to the metal energy! The album does a great job not only paying homage to the classic “Misfits” sound Doyle is known for but it also infuses a progressive element that will captivate virgin listeners. The only thing I found to be a negative was at times there seemed to be a lack of bass in the overall mix however it wasn’t enough to make me not want to listen to the album on repeat a few times over. If you haven’t got your copy of the album yet I don’t know what you are waiting for? As the longer you wait the longer you’re going to be missing out on some really killer sounds.
