Overview

Don't get your hopes up too high, longtime Misfits fans -- this isn't what you think. No Danzig era undiscovered gems reside here, but rather rarities/outtakes from latter-day Misfits. For those who are only familiar with the group's definitive, earlier incarnation, the latter-day Misfits are much more heavy metal based than in their earlier work -- as their punk roots have all but been erased. As with most 'rarities' collections, a healthy amount of covers are included, such as Iggy & the Stooges' "I Got a Right," Black Flag's "Rise Above" (with former Black Flag frontman Dez Cadena guesting on vocals), and the Halloween classic, "Monster Mash" (the latter of which you have to wonder: Danzig were still in the band, would he have agreed to sing it?). Also featured are several demo versions of songs that later appeared in finished form on 1997's American Psycho ("Haunting," "Mars Attacks," etc.), odds and ends ("Dr. Phibes Rises Again"), and tracks that should have remained in the vaults ("I Wanna Be A NY Ranger"). Cuts From the Crypt is obviously aimed at the die-hard Misfits fan, who won't get a good night's rest until they have every single track in their possession.

It's a great collection of their works from the past 5 years since the resurrection of the Misfits in 1996 that contains rare demos, b-sides and unrealeased material from the masters of creep rock.

its one of there best new cds. I don't understand why it has a parental advisory though. Not mush worse then collection 2. Its very good though. Better then Famous Monsters, a lot better then AMerican Pcycho.
