THOR AND MICK HOFFMAN
"Beastwomen from the Center of the Earth" (Thortoen/Scratch)
Reviewed by Mike SOS
This must be some kind of joke, because the pure silliness of this disc is just too much. Thor, the Canadian performance artist, bodybuilder, B-movie actor, and part-time metal frontman, has released his newest project, an album that makes Spinal Tap look like Led Zeppelin.
Containing all of the charm of a public access television program (and a bloated sense of self-importance to boot) "Beastwomen from the Center of the Earth" isn't just the title to this campy, cheesy rock orchestra; it's the title of a bad nightmare that went 12 tracks too deep.
Unless you have a high tolerance for the lowbrow, or you think that Manowar is God and "The Rocky Horror Picture Show" is the greatest stage play ever written, then this one's a big dud.

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.
