Insane Clown Posse – The Wraith: Shangri-LA

The band who make Slipknot look like S Club Juniors

Trending Now

With this, the sixth and apparently final LP in what now appears to have been a concept-career, Detroit’s ICP deliver their finest, funniest material yet. Their comic ultraviolence reaching a beastly new peak, they threaten unbelievers with axes, knives and shotguns?they’ll even “bitch slap cow licks into your hair”. Yet there are also sombre reflections on death and heaven (this is where the concept comes in) so, with the music a brilliantly produced collage of SFX, funk and metal, The Wraith adds up to a thrilling, thought-provoking experience.
