I have been a metal fan for 30+ years but never gave W.A.S.P. a chance because their lyrics were questionable ( to say the least) on a few of their songs. But I was watching Decline of Western Civilization a few weeks ago and saw Chris Holmes in his pool and started wondering what happened to him. So I looked him up and, low and behold, the man is ALIVE and living in France, for crying out loud!
One idea led to another and I look up Blackie Lawless and I find the man is a born again Christian. I am a Christian. I start listening to Golgotha, and I can’t quit listening to Golgotha. I am addicted to Golgotha! NO....I’m addicted to this band!! I need more! So I listen to most all of Blackie’s music, because this man has something to say. I find myself listening to his songs and reading his lyrics. I start from the beginning, his anger. But then the tone of the albums change, more thought-provoking, deeper colors, more movement in the poetry, vibrant with Blackie’s innermost passion and turmoil.
God has blessed you, Blackie, and you know it! I grew up in the church, too! Did I fall away? Yes! My father was an elder....I was the Wild Child. But I heard Our Father’s voice and came home!
“For God so loved the world, He gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him, shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through Him.”
May our Father hold you in the palm of His hand.
Peace, Love, Blessings, Light
Golgotha amazing song
It's a different view off the wasp I grew up up with but it's wasp musically just the lyrics have changed. 🤘🏻go Blackie gods will brother.
Big ups blackie for putting this out. The people saying its "preachy" are obviously not paying attention. "Man's" religion and faith couldnt be more polar opposites.
Anyone with problems with his message aren't listening closely. Read the interviews about this.
So good so far

we hop se you agian and agian
Now this is amazing!
This must be listened to with headphones! You don't want to miss a single note!
When I heard the chorus on Golgotha "Jesus I need you now" I was sold! it gave me chills! Nothing better than a positive message delivered by one of the best vocalists in metal! God bless W.A.S.P.
What is going on here.

This ain't the same kind music that started the PMRC crap some of u know what I'm saying!!! A few ok songs but that's it the rest u can fall asleep to. The cover is better than the cd it's self now that's sad right ppl!!! R.I.P. W.A.S.P.⚰
A New Fan!
I grew-up in the 80s and to be honest WASP seemed to dark to me. Needless to say I heard that Blackie gave his heart to the Lord and is a Born-Again Christian so I gave this new album a listen...I AM A FAN!
To those who liked the old band I can see why, the music is awesome! However, Blackie is really writing some wonderful and positive lyrics so it's great to have such a popular rocker use his talents for God.
Rock on WASP and I pray everyone learns from Blackies testimony! And while you may lose some fans, you will gain others such as me! God bless your efforts!
