The mystique around Doyle Wolfgang Von Frankenstein continues to grow. The legendary Misfits’ axe-man has had a few different projects since his departure from the band. His band Gorgeous Frankenstein was heavy, heavy metal and a far departure from the horror punk/metal sound of the previous two eras of the Misfits. Unfortunately, some promotional flaws proved that most fans didn’t even know Doyle had a new band, so he wasn’t exposed and didn’t get the attention he rightfully deserved for having a really stellar band. After multiple personnel changes, but with a solid line-up finally in place, a band decision was made to change the band’s name to Doyle’s namesake to allow the fans to know exactly what they were getting.
With Doyle on guitar, “Left Hand” Graham on bass, Dr. CHUD on drums and Alex Story on vocals, this band brings an amazing new level to horror metal nostalgia and blows your head off. The animalistic howls of Alex are the sounds that create nightmares and his delivery is absolutely amazing. The vocalist’s ability to write and deliver killer lyrics that make a person say, “Did he just say that?” are incredible and are laid down perfectly. Graham and CHUD are such a stellar rhythm section and they have styles that mesh seamlessly with Doyle’s guitar and Alex’s vocals. Doyle’s playing comes screaming through this record. His riffs are so recognizable that there’s no way to listen to this record and not say, “That’s Doyle Wolfgang Von Frankenstein on guitar.”
With the second record in the can and the third mostly written, we can be ready for much more Doyle in our future. Be scared and be excited.
