"Earth A.D." the Classic Misfits Last Studio Album
deathhead | Tahlequah, Oklahoma United States | 10/04/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

""Earth A.D./Die Die My Darling" is the last studio album the orginal Misfits did together. On this album the Misfits embark on a new direction of horror. Instead of catchy tunes and B-Horror lyrics, "Earth A.D." picks up the pace and rams it in your ears at a sonic speed. The lyrics portray a much more violent reality that leaves the listener numb and wanting more. Some Misfit fans found the change in style to be too much and wished it would have been more punk. I think that it was a breath of fresh air that the Misfits changed up their musical style. I agree that "Earth A.D." may not be the greates Misfit album of all time, but it is close. There are plenty of classic tracks on the album, and we begin to see Danzig's shift from the Misfits to Samhain on the album. I also give this album alot of credit as a speed metal album. I may not be as masterful as Metallica's "Master of Puppets" or as fast and furious as Slayer's "Reign in Blood", but it is raw and honest and my hat goes off to the Misfits for trying something new and succeeding in doing so. It is too bad that the orginal members split up after this album, but then again if they would not have then there may have never been a Samhain or Danzig solo career. I look back at this album as the Misfits last stand that kicked metal music up a notch or two before going out. What better way to go out than to go out in style. The Misfits did that successfuly leaving there orginal fans wanting more and more. "Earth A.D." is a must have for Misfits fans and fans of heavy metal music."
Misfits do Hardcore

"The final MISFITS recordings were "Earth A.D./Wolfsblood" and the "Die, Die My Darling" EP, both included on this CD. After making their mark as a horror movie version of RAMONES doing ELVIS PRESLEY, the band adopted the "in" style of punk at the time (1982), which was playing blazingly fast hardcore punk. Although considered now a classic MISFITS album, at the time it was released many fans (and even some of the band members themselves) were put off by this slightly less melodic approach in favor of straight thrash beats, ultimately serving as a huge influence to up and coming Thrash Metal bands such as SLAYER and (guess who?) METALLICA. I listened to this album just months before METALLICA's "Garage Days Re-Revisited" EP was released in the summer of 1987, so I prefer MISFITS' version of "Green Hell" slightly over METALLICA's. At the time I heard this, I was more keen on liking this type of hardcore: fast, unrelenting and ferociously brutal, yet it retained those classic MISFITS melodies though buried under the intense barrage of guitars, bass and drums. I have grown to like their more melodic material a bit more, but nontheless, "Earth A.D." is an essential album for any true MISFITS fan or for fans of vintage, head ripping hardcore punk."
Screw Limp Bizkit--This is hardcore!

"This album is only around 20 minutes long, but it kicks ... for the whole time. Just put this baby on shuffle and repeat, and you can listen to it for hours. "Demonomania" was my favorite on the album. I wanna go crazy when I listen to this."
