The Essential Series - 2017 Glam Metal (Volume 1) by Dtabachn
Commonly, public at large as well as critics and writers fail to identify the importance of Glam Metal as a crucial Metal sub-genre. In the sense that it was the driving force behind the fact that Metal was arguably the dominant genre in popular music around the mid to late 80's.

W.A.S.P - 1984 W.A.S.P
W.A.S.P.'s debut very much epitomises the state of heavy metal in the US in the early to mid 80's, extremely traditional with large helpings of theatrics and the inclusion of material that could be construed as mildy commercial, yet always heavy.

W.A.S.P - 1985 The Last Command
Charting at number 47 and going gold, this was easily the commercial peak for W.A.S.P. after just two albums. 'The Last Command,' still a regular on my playlists all these years later.

W.A.S.P - 1986 Inside The Electric Circus
'Inside The Electric Circus' is the third album from U.S shock rockers W.A.S.P.

W.A.S.P - 1992 Crimson Idol
'Crimson Idol' is more of a Blackie Lawless solo album. Something fitting of his personal epitaph. This is an autobiographical concept album, with Blackie taking on the lead, rhythm and bass guitars as well as keyboards and production.

W.A.S.P - 2009 Babylon
The trademark W.A.S.P. sound is so firmly in place even I was shocked. Nothings toned down either, rampant heavy metal and Blackie, on this form - has another 20 years left in him easily.

W.A.S.P - 2015 Golgotha
Who would've thought.. Blackie Lawless found God and religion. Not to say 'Golgotha' is a white metal transformation.. No way, the music is still firmly rooted in the sound of old, if not quite as heavy.
