PURGATORY DANCE PARTY
Salvaged from the wreckage of the enigmatic metal clan Dog Fashion Disco, Polkadot Cadaver pretty much picks up where DFD left off in terms of giving the listener the feeling of being in attendance at an amusement park with a heavily throbbing soundtrack underneath. Tracks like "Deathwish" could be mistaken for Marilyn Manson, while "Sole Survivor" takes one of those patented System of a Down-esque weird beat with a Stephen Lynch-like lyrical stance and some strangely endearing pop bubbling up from the depths of the insanity. There's a lot of bells (literally, there are bells chiming on this disc everywhere) and whistles running amuck on this 12-track affair to warrant repeated listens to get it all down and the electronic music and acoustic instruments used here are plentiful, but fear not, these dudes are still as weird as ever judging by the evil disco found on "Bring Me the Head of Andy Warhol" and the quirky "Wolf in Jesus Skin" for fans of their past project to fully embrace. If you dig Mike Patton, Dillinger Escape Plan, or miss Dog Fashon Disco, PURGATORY DANCE PARTY delivers the offbeat crush you crave.
