Shout At The Devil

Rated 4.12/5 (82.31%) (26 Votes)

Mötley Crüe is a band that is known today more for their androgynous looks and drummer's porn tape than their music. They released their second album all the way back in 1983. Shout at the Devil is much more metal than their following albums. Interesting little bit of information, the song "Dude Looks Like a Lady" by Aerosmith was actually written about Mötley Crüe vocalist Vince Neil during the their Theatre of Pain days.

Don't let all the talk of men in lipstick deter you from listening to this album, as it is really enjoyable. Vince Neil really shines on this album. He hits the high notes right from the first title track, letting you know that he isn't just another pretty faced glam band. What makes Mötley Crüe stand out as a true metal band on this album is Mick Mars guitar playing and tone. It is much harsher and rougher than all the other Sunset Strip bands.

This is obviously no brutal extreme metal, but when it comes to a little less aggressive metal, this is a great album. This was Mötley Crüe's most metal album and their best album as well. If you are looking for something to lighten up you collection of death, black, and thrash metal, Shout at the Devil is a fantastic choice. Don't let their image fool you, this is metal.
