The album is titled after the horror film of the same name and features cover artwork by Arthur Suydamwho previously did the cover of the band's single " Land of the Dead ".
Like previous Misfits albums, The Devil's Rain includes references and homages to many past works of horror and science fiction. It sold 6, copies in its first week of release, debuting at number 70 on the Billboard Matthew Cole of Slant Magazine was critical of the album's musical direction: "As was the case when Jerry Only resurrected the band in the s, the Misfits have incorporated a dose of not-especially-heavy metal into their sound; on a scale of Winger to Slayerthis rocks at about Scorpions.
The Devil's Rain is the work of a band that aspires to give the genre little more than its answer to the ' Monster Mash '. The best songs on the album still tend to be the ones that shoehorn in those famous 'whoa-oh-ohs' wherever they can, with the under-two-minute 'Black Hole' being an obvious standout. For the most part, though, those big, sloppy harmonies seem less prominent, often relegated to the background. The song reframes a story of real-life violence, the las meurtas de Juarezas a 50s sock-hop torch song, complete with handclaps and female backup singers.
Jerry Only's vocals received specific comments from several reviewers. Hemmerling remarked "The vocals on the album are a weak point in general. Michale Graves caught a lot of shit for not being Glenn Danzig, but spinning this record helps you appreciate just how significant his contribution was to the group. Only's cartoony, stentorian bark that felt so at home on the excellent Project falls flat here and lacks the dynamism to invest the listener in the emotional core of these kitschy, monster-movie melodramas.
He may be a devil-locked punk icon, but he sounds an awful lot like Pat Booneand his presence behind the microphone is just as intimidating. He's nowhere near maintaining the dark grit, ferocious gusto or guttural severity Misfits songs require.
Where he simply used to shout, his voice has become cleaner and more smooth, at times almost Album) '50s crooners like Dion and Del Shannonwho blended the dying doo-wop with the infant rock and roll. In Album) review for The Boston PhoenixMichael Christopher speculated that the album would be received poorly by those who refuse to recognize the Misfits as legitimate without Glenn Danzig. Other points are stumbles: 'Monkey's Paw' has Only trying pitifully hard to ape the Misfits' 'Last Caress', and tracks like 'Curse of the Mummy's Hand' and 'Ghost of Frankenstein' are too predictable to be more than schlock, Album) it would be funny—in a good, goofy, send-up sort of way—if it was done under another moniker These guys just need another alias.
When original vocalist Glenn Danzig detailed 'the insemination of little girls in the middle of wet dreams', it seemed like that was something he was actually into. Even when second Misfits vocalist, Michael Graves, wailed that he was 'crying on a Saturday night', it seemed he was pulling from true early 20s dejection. But, when Only sings about mummies, or Frankenstein, or even hell, it doesn't seem like that's what he feels is important, but what he is limited to in subject matter, leaving the tunes without any sense of conviction.
It's just frustrating that when the band snaps together and plays what they truly want to play, they aren't so much 'the Misfits' as a band containing a hefty amount of punk talent and experience. Instead of leaving the past behind, they seem to cling to it, forever condemning themselves to comparisons of previous incarnations. If Famous Monsters was a step back for the Misfits legacy, this is a bigger step in the wrong direction.

Sep 26, · The Devil's Rain is indeed a new phase in The Misfits legacy(of brutality!) as it sounds completely different from any other Misfits album. To me, it's more hard rock with a punk injection. It never kicks into high thrash mode like in the Graves era. Only promised us fast, thrashy songs, but none are really to be found here.4/5().
