There is plenty to celebrate about this album. It is chock full of well-crafted energetic slices of hardcore punk heaven. There are plenty of classic ripping riffs, mixing with the solos.
This album hands you deep and dirty grooves one minute and then spine-tingling beauty the next.
The last track, ‘LOCAC’ will surprise, enthrall and annoy fans in equal measure. Angry, distorted, liberally dosed with fiery vocals from Ginger, the track is best described as extreme progressive punk, a genre I never knew existed
It has the familiarity of its predecessor without simply copying the formula. The ‘if it ain’t broke’ approach underpins the album enough to immediately feel at home from the off but the added input from the band and Josiah’s production give ‘Light It Up’ something new to latch on to as well.
With literally every show selling out on the latest run of 2019 touring, there can be no doubt that fans of Wednesday 13 will enjoy them dropping the new album just in time for All Hallows Eve.
It would be tempting to list the qualities of every track on this album but ill suffice to say that it is superb in its entirety from the opening track, to the last frenzied riff of “Sleep Awake Obey!”
In between the jokes and banter with the crowd, Dani Filth and Mother Nature, the music, which saw tracks from his new opus ‘For The Love of Metal’ sit comfortably alongside Twisted Sister classics, got everyone bouncing and singing back to one of the best front men that rock has seen over the last 40 or so years.

Some bands incorporate myriads of lasers into their shows, some have live trapeze artists and giant robots (Muse, I’m looking at you) but few bands put so much effort into their own performance as this young group.
There are quite a few of these electronic punk and aggrotech songs like these on the album such as ‘Last Days Under the Sun’ which is one of my favourite tracks on this album.
