Legendary Misfits guitarist Doyle Wolgang von Frankenstein released his second solo album As We Die in 2017. When he’s not touring with Misfits, Doyle is off on his solo tour with his bandmates unleashing hell on the road. To promote the album, Doyle once again embarked on a USA tour called As We Die World Abomination Tour 2018. One of the stops was at the world-famous Whisky A Go Go on the Sunset Strip. Finally at 11:45pm after enduring seven opening bands, it was time for the Vegan Metal Monster to come out and raise hell to the packed venue for the second of two shows performed there.
His bandmates came on stage first and Doyle himself stomped his way to the stage as the final member as they started the show with Kiss Me As We Die, the opening track from Doyle‘s newest album. The floor came alive as a mosh pit formed as well as people shoving trying to get as close as possible to the front of the stage. Doyle‘s music offers a range of heavy metal and horror punk which moshers loved as they kept doing what they love best. For most of the songs, singer Alex “Wolfman” Story would introduce each song by saying, “this next song is a love song. You can dance to it if you want”. It made for some great humor in between songs. The next track played was Beast Like Me from the new album and is one of the more popular tracks from it. Seeing as how Doyle has two albums out, it means he has plenty of material to pick from for his show. On his previous tours, Doyle would throw in some classic Misfits tunes for fans, but sadly this was not the case for this tour. Still, fans had a good time as Doyle stomped on stage and Story used the whole stage as his playground and even went as far as climbing the speakers and singing from there proving he’s one of the best frontmen around right now. The band crushed through songs like Cemeterysexxx, Land of the Dead, Blood on the Axe, and DreamingDeadGirls. It was during DreamingDeadGirls that Story made motions with his hands as if he was spanking a dead girl and having intercourse with her. Because who doesn’t dream of a dead girl? Doyle is a fun and wild band to see live, especially if you’re a fan of the Misfits. Story ended the show by saying, “let’s finish this so we can go get tacos”. The band ended the night with Night of Sin, the final track of the newest album. Doyle has proven repeatedly that they deserve more recognition. Doyle finished up the song then left the stage as the audience cheered.
