|I Think I've Heard That Voice Before.|
Ten great punk and metal albums with vocalists who sound like more famous vocalists.
|1|| ||The Hookers|
The Rock'N'Roll Outlaw sounds a lot like Danzig. The album kinda sounds like if The Dwarves where Kentucky redneck Satanists. Great stuff.
Horror Rises From The Tombs
The Hookers broke up around 2001, got back together around 2008, and released this thing in 2011. Music sounds a lot like their first album, the Rock'N'Roll Outlaw still sounds like a rough Danzig with no range, but the lyrics are less "I'm an evil fucker" and more Hammer Horror film narration. Another winner.
|3||Blade of The Ripper|
Blade of The Ripper
This was the debut album from the best band that The Rock'N'Roll Outlaw was in while The Hookers were on hiatus. A bit less punk than The Hookers, more thrash/NWOBHM. Unique sound and strong songwriting. The track "House Of Witchcraft" will have you convinced that the Outlaw is Danzig's evil(er) twin.
|4||Blade of The Ripper|
Taste The Blade
Second and final album from this band was even better than the first. Look it up.
|5||The Candy Snatchers|
The Candy Snatchers
Something of an underground classic of nineties garage punk. Imagine Danzig fronting Dead Boys or New Bomb Turks. Unmatched energy, fantastic record.
Serpent Girl And Songs To Shed The Skin
Horror punk, so of course he's gonna sound a little (a lot) like Danzig, but also has a bit of a Pete Steele (Type O Negative) thing going on. Also some death metal influence. Best release from this little known band and "Pictures of Suzy" is way more disturbing than anything from Calabrese or Blitzkid.
Danzig II: Lucifuge
There's a reason he's known as 'Evil Elvis'.
Southern Cross Ripper
Okay, the vocals are total Tom G. Warrior (Celtic Frost) rip-off territory, but there is some very fine thrash metal backing them up. Recommended.
Ominous Doctrines of the Perpetual Mystical Macrocosm
Dagon may sound like Abbath from Immortal, and I guess it's even arguable who writes better riffs (I'd go with Dagon), but when it comes to song and album titles, it's not even close.
A Beast Conceived
I've read reviews comparing Vanessa Nocera's growls to Angela Gassow's of Arch Enemy. I say she sounds more like Dr. Mikannibal from Sigh. Maybe I'm just saying that 'cause Sigh is one of my fave bands and I really like this debut from Howling a lot (favorite new band). Anyway, Vanessa's got more range.
