Dying For The World (2002) (METAL-IS RECORDS) (10 TRACKS)
W.A.S.P. 

Album Description:

Dying for the World is the tenth album by W.A.S.P., released in 2002. DYING FOR THE WORLD is Blackie Lawless' dedication to all those who perished in the attacks of the 9/11 events, especially heard on the "Hallowed Ground" track.

This 2002 release has a consistently serious tone, and that seriousness was, to a large degree, inspired by the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. Lawless' liner notes assert that when the World Trade Center became a mass grave, he was determined to record an album that expressed his anger - and DYING FOR THE WORLD is definitely angry. However, Lawless' lyrics don't necessarily come across as overtly political. "Revengeance," "Stone Cold Killers," and "Hell for Eternity" call for the destruction of those who destroyed Manhattan's Twin Towers, but the songs are worded in such a way that if you didn't read Lawless' liner notes, you wouldn't necessarily know that he was railing against al-Qaeda terrorists. Similarly, the moving "Hallowed Ground" was inspired by Lawless' October 2001 visit to what New Yorkers now call "Ground Zero," although he doesn't mention the World Trade Center by name. And not every track has to do with terrorism; the haunting "Trail of Tears," for example, is about the oppression of Native Americans. Musically, DYING FOR THE WORLD breaks no new ground for W.A.S.P., which sticks to an 80's-like sound - and for die-hard fans of 80's metal, that isn't a bad thing. Not all of W.A.S.P.'s albums have been consistent, but this excellent release is arguably the band's strongest, most focused efforts since the 80's.

The album was written and recorded in less than 12 months. This is very unusual as Blackie Lawless is a perfectionist, normally taking 2 years or more to finish an album and have it recorded.

W.A.S.P.: Blackie Lawless (vocals, guitar, keyboards); Darrell Roberts (guitar, background vocals); Mike Duda (bass, background vocals); Frankie Banali (drums).

Recorded and mixed in 2001-2002 at Fort Apache, Bellows Falls, Vermont.
