While shorter than some band’s set, DOYLE delivers a high energy, groove-filled and melodic night of hard driving music, that should appeal to hard rock, metal, and punk fans alike.
Doyle doesn’t simply just play guitar, he punishes it into submission
Though they may be better known for their omnipresent skull logo, which can be found on a copious amount of merchandise, than their music and some argue that the current incarnation of the band is little more than a tribute band. It’s hard for me to fault them from caring on earning a living if it’s as fun as the show was Saturday night. If this is a typical present day Misfits show, I’d gladly go see them next time they come through town.
Old school Misfit fans will likely enjoy this album as there are plenty of hints of his legacy here, but I’m personally not able to love it as much as I likely would’ve 15 years ago or more. Was hoping to catch him on tour with Danzig soon, but the night they’re playing in my area I won’t be able to make, which is disappointing as I think these songs would transfer to a live setting much better than on album. Overall Abominator is a good album that has some great ups and a few downs, but after a couple listens I went from expecting to write a less than rave review to saying that it’s pretty decent.
