W.A.S.P. Reveals Part One of The Neon God Saga on April 6th Through Sanctuary/Metal-Is Records

W.A.S.P. The name is legend, having become associated with such controversial and mind numbing releases as Headless Children, The Crimson Idol, K.F.D., Unholy Terrord the notorious self-titled debut. April 6, 2004 will see the band evolve further with The Neon God: Part One – The Rise, a conceptual rock opera that explores the tragedy and consequences of one boy’s search for acceptance and purpose in his existence.

Opening with the line, “Oh tell me my lord, why am I here?”, The Neon God delves into such deeply emotional (and personal) inquiries, such as where does one fit into the great cosmic enigma? How does love fit into the equation? Should I use my gifts and talents for good or for evil? These are the primary thoughts all people have regarding their existence at one time or another. When addressed by a youth and coupled with an extreme dose of fear, a lethal combination develops.

Part One – The Rise tells the story of an abused and orphaned boy who finds that he has the ability to read and manipulate people. By utilizing his gifts, he is able to build a following whose devotion and allegiance create a loyalty so intense that he is poised to become a dark Messiah for the 21st Century. The tracklisting includes:

Overture
Red Room of the Rising Sun
Why Am I Here
What I’ll Never Find
Wishing Wel
l Someone To Love Me
Sister Sadie (And the Black Habits)
X.T.C. Riders
(Why Am) I Nothing
Me and the Devil
Underature
Running Man
Asylum #9
The Raging Storm

Ambitious in design, but no less potent than previous work, W.A.S.P. has reached a milestone many years in the making. The powerful, high-emotion story is set to the backdrop of W.A.S.P’s trademark nail-biting, theatrical style, from the guitar and soul-searing vocal performance of frontman Blackie Lawless to the intense percussion work of Frankie Banali, the bludgeoning bass work of Mike Duda, and the raging lead guitar styling of Darrell Roberts. One can only imagine what the live show will yield.

Part 2 of The Neon God story will be released by Sanctuary/Metal-Is Records over the summer and will complete the awe-inspiring and jaw dropping story.

Over the years, W.A.S.P. have created some of the most controversial and thought-provoking records in the history of metal. The Neon God is a labor of love for the band, an album that Blackie Lawless has talked about making for years. The Neon God is the next evolution in the musical beast that is W.A.S.P.
