This is a commonly known fact. Despite what the press release states, Williams was never a member of Pompeii 99. Mr. Valor was drafted in as a replacement guitarist along with Gitane Demone as some of the original members had by 1983 left the band. That anyone would still insist on perpetuating the joke that this band is astounds me.
This is bad bad metal with piss poor production qualities. We haven't even gotten to just how bad Valor's lyrics are, or rather, what an obviously juvenile audience his simple minded attempts at "controversy" will attract. Take heed all fans of the true Christian Death, this is just another odious entry which further defiles the legacy of a truly pioneering outfit.
Song after song on "American Inquisition" drags on and on and on and on. It is as though any attempt at creativity only leads to rank and file by the numbers headbanging metal. It must truly be a drag to never realise any true vision or artistic spark. To know that you require a dead man's legacy for anyone to even bother paying attention to what you do, a legacy you have no right to use by the way. Sin and sacrifice indeed.
