Animal House (1987) (NUCLEAR BLAST) (11 TRACKS)
ANIMAL HOUSE is the 1987 debut album from U.D.O. after Udo Dirkschneider''s departure from Accept. It was recorded August-October 1987 at Dierks Studios, Cologne, West Germany. The performance of the song "Lay Down the Law" is credited to Accept and U.D.O.. Pulheimer Kinder- und Jugendchor contribute vocals to "They Want War".
Udo Dirkschneider released an Accept album under the name U.D.O. (the entire album was written by the Accept crew for the man as they were heading off to "bigger and better" things with new singer David Reese) and launched one of the more entertaining and consitent solo careers in the history of German metal. This album is a sweet production job with all the knobs twisted in the right places and a band that matches the intensity of Accept in all aspects of the project. Udo sounds extremely powerful and straightforward, making the vocals classy and catchy. He unabashedly delivers classic after classic in the old-school Accept style. The frantic "Animal House" rates up with anything else Udo has done, the scathing "Go Back to Hell" may be the greatest backup song ever and "Lay Down the Law" is a cruising rock and roll event. While not a rocker, "They Want War" is an uplifting number that bears a rousing chorus that even features a children choir (!!!).
Udo''s "Animal House" is a successful first step for a man that has become the genres "ironman". Udo has never sold out, never stopped and despite many heart attacks has refused to tame his sound. Udo is Udo and is hopelessly dedicated to metal.
Enjoy this album with a six pack and a heart full of pride for the genre and indulge in the classics to keep faith in the great concept that is Udo!
