It will soon be 15 years since Joseph Poole, better known as Wednesday 13, has been leading his carrier solo. It has had its ups and downs, and recently with "Condolences" the whimsical singer had released a just right album that had hardly ignited the crowds. Indeed, although still bathed in a rock horror tinged with glam and metal in the tradition of Alice Cooper, Rob Zombie and Marilyn Manson, the artist struggles a little to renew herself.

This eighth opus, "Necrophaze", has importance: it must show that the singer is still able to hit the target to make people tremble. There is already a positive point with a cover that has an attractive dark side and a subtitle that confirms this horrific idea. The disc is built like the soundtrack of a horror movie from the 70's - perfect to make the listener shiver. In the middle of the 10 tracks there are a lot of very good things. "Necrophaze" is a total success with the perfect hoarse vocals, the keyboard for the atmosphere, a very good chorus and especially the presence of Alice Cooper at the beginning of the track for a very gloomy result. 

Next to it we enjoy with delight "Bring Your Own Blood", "Monster", "Decompose" or "Life Will Kill Us All". There's the immediate hard rock side with a touch of indus, catchy choruses and the delicious vocals of Wednesday 13. On 'Monster' the voice of Cristina Scabbia (Lacuna Coil) brings a very pleasant gothic touch. There is above all a frightening atmosphere and this one stands out even more on the duo formed by 'Be Warmed' and 'The Hearse'. The first is a real film dialogue with Jeff Clayton's intervention, while the second is a heavy industrial slap worthy of the best of a Marilyn Manson. The finale as a film credits with 'Necrophaze Main Theme (End Credits)' is impeccable to conclude the album in style.

With "Necrophaze" Wednesday 13 regains some colours. The band and its singer show a brilliant form and sign a tasty, deliciously dark and attractive record that will undoubtedly delight fans of the genre.
