The Apocalypse Blues Revue: The Shape of Blues to Come Review

I grew up in a ridiculously heavy metal part of Queens, New York. You could be mercifully teased for wearing a Guns n’ Roses t-shirt to junior high, since they “weren’t metal” (and somehow explaining they didn’t claim to be metal just made things worse). A special dispensation was given for the band Danzig, though, which was considered metal due to singer Glenn Danzig’s pedigree fronting the Misfits and Samhain, which were actually punk groups. Avoiding the insane metal logic of 12-year-old boys for a moment, Danizg, the band’s 1988 debut album, was and is a beloved record for me. Which is why I flipped out upon hearing The Shape of Blues to Come, by The Apocalypse Blues Revue. It’s very reminiscent of that first Danzig album, while also standing just fine on its own.
