Review: Son of Sam  

Son of Sam
““Songs from the Earth””
(Nitro Records)

Son of Sam is a punk supergroup composed of members whose credits include AFI, Tiger Army, D-Generation, Murphy’s Law, Danzig and Samhain.  This debut release even boasts a guest appearance by none other than Mr. Glenn Danzig himself.  The songs, not surprisingly, have the Plan 9, gothy-metal feel to them, but still all work rather well and offer some variety.  This by far surpasses recent work by the sans-Danzig, WWFing Misfits, if that counts for anything to any of you old-school fiends out there.  Bound to be playing on the stereo at a Hot Topic near you, check it out, trick or treat or whatever.
