"Booze, Broads and Beelzebub" (Nuclear Blast; 2008)

Reviewed by Mike SOS

Conceived by members of Dimmu Borgir as a retreat of sorts from the corpsepaint community, the toothy biker rock touted on "Booze, Broads and Beelzebub" fits perfectly between your Motorhead and Lordi albums. 

Chrome Division firmly stows tongue in cheek, complete with the hot blonde stripper in the album artwork and topped off with an amped-up cover of ZZ Top's "Sharp Dressed Man" for good measure. This 13-track collection is a four-on-the-floor, pedal-to-the-metal celebration of sex, drugs, and rock'n'roll. 

While far from essential, this disc provides a raucous good time for those about to rock.

Rating Guide:

A classic. This record will kick your ass.

Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.

So-so. You've heard better.

Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.

Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
