I've been playing this album for a few weeks now and it just never seems to get old to me. The Haxans are a new duo comprised of singer Ash Costello (New Years Day) and Piggy-D (Rob Zombie bassist Matt Montgomery). With Piggy-D's experience you just knew it had to be bizarre, right? This is punky, gothic hard rock that's loaded with adrenaline and mood. Ash's vocals are spot on and nails the scornful lover on some tracks; the sultry dark vixen on others. The cover of The Ramones' "Pet Cemetery" is the perfect inclusion, a different take with a more subdued, atmospheric take on the song's eerie vibe.
