This is the third TSOL album and fuck yes, one of the best but the best. The work get brilliant similarities to Misfits, Danzig and Samhain, keeping their punk roots with an strong gothic voice, which also can to remind to The Damned in its more goth period. Perhaps slower and less hardcore than their debut, but highly recommended for those all followers of the band.

"revenge"
Year:  1986
Country:  US
Label:  Restless
Format:  CD , LP
Tracks:  10
Time:  33 min.
Genre:  rock
Style:        Horror Punk






















Fourth TSOL studio album and the last one of their golden era. After this "revenge" came two attempts to mainstream heavy metal industry entitled: "hit and run" (1987) and "strange love" (1990), both a complete commercial failure. This "revenge" coud be a balance between their typical horror punk plus strong hard-rock influences, and the album become really original and interesting. Nor classic punk neither hard-rock but a mix of both with an evident talent and high technical level.

Label:  Reprise

Tracks:  13
Time:  38 min.
Genre:  rock
Style:         Horror Punk






















After seven years of complete discographic silence, the californian veterans punk rockers attack us again with new album. This time there is just punk rock with some pop influences, whith few distorted guitards and clear and melodic voices and chorus. It's no sure to describe this one as a post-punk album, in the 80's style, but it's something like that. Even most of lyrics have nothing to do with "horror punk", b-movies or Misfits, to mention a few. This is more related to optimistyc and positive pop attitude. The band added in some songs even electronic keyboards. But the final result is more than satisfactory, not the typical TSOL album, but still good and recommended.
