Ivan Moody is a fascinating frontman. One moment, he's the archetypical heavy-metal, thrash-death songster. He's a sprite who leaps around the stage, a blur of movement. He's the angry guy you don't want your daughter to bring home... then suddenly, and above all, he's the naughty boy at the back of the class, pulling the girls' hair, flicking spit-balls across the room, but never really getting into trouble, because he carries a cheeky grin and twinkle that says "oops" and saves him every time.
I plan on seeing them again.
Their fifth studio album, The Wrong Side of Heaven and the Righteous Side of Hell, Volume 2, is due to be released on November 19th, (Volume one has been available since July 30th this year.) If you buy the deluxe edition, you receive two discs (or the equivalent download): one is studio recordings, one a live album.
