White Zombie - God of Thunder

Who:  White Zombie

What:  First release with riff-master guitarist Jay Yuenger. Released on Caroline.

When:  October 1989

Where:  New York City

Why:   This EP is the first appearance of the White Zombie that we all know and love. The goth and 80s influences are gone. The Metallica-knob got cracked to 11.

[The Radness Average (or star rating) is derived from assigning each song a number of stars based on a 1-5 scale, then adding the total number of stars, and then dividing that number of total stars by the number of songs on the record. A Radness Average of 4.0 or higher indicates a good or great record. A Radness Average of 2.0 or less indicates pure crap. Everything else is in the middle somewhere.]

White Zombie - God of Thunder

Verdict:  Jay was the missing piece of the puzzle. This band got really awesome once he joined.

For fans of:  White Zombie. Is anyone really unfamiliar with this band?
