While I have nothing but the greatest respect for paying tribute to the deceased, there is something to be said for discretion as well. The Electric Hellfire Club's third album is a tribute to their fallen comrade in music who passed away in a car accident in 1995. If this was the way my friends tried to pay tribute to my rotting corpse, I'm not sure I'd want to have these people as friends. Instead of taking the queue from Dr Luv's passing and attempting to better their music, once again they have fallen into the musical rut that every single album they have released to date has been stuck. Insert a landslide of satanic samples, cheesy vocals, and even more ridiculous track titles and you have a virtual photo copy of their last two albums. I haven't the vaguest idea why anyone would enjoy this music but apparently someone does since they keep releasing the same album over and over again much like KMFDM. They have found their schtick and have stuck with it to the bitter end, much to our disfortune. Pardon me, I have to go and sell my soul to get these people to quit releasing this rubbish before people start taking them seriously.

Electric Hellfire Club is:
Thomas Thorn - vocals, lyrics, programs, sampling, etc
Richard Frost - electronic drums, percussion & programs
Sabrina Satana - vocals, go-go boots
Otto Mattix - diabolical sound and infernal devices
