Murderdolls have just played their first two shows in six years in Southern California, and LA Weekly was on hand to see the devilish duo of Wednesday 13 and Joey Jordison bring their punk/metal anarchy live.

Of the band's performance at the Sunset Strip's famed Key Club last Thursday, June 17th, LA Weekly's Full Metal Jackie and Alex Distefano write, "Beginning sharply at 11 p.m., fans were treated to an extremely high-energy 90 minute set which included old favorites and several new songs. Tunes like 'Slit My Wrist,' and 'Twist my Sister' got heads banging, horns raised and fists pumping. Fans also went wild for the new single, 'My Dark Place Alone.'

Jordison and Wednesday 13 proved that they can create catchy, punk-infused glam metal songs with riffs just heavy enough to please everyone from fans of Slipknot to RATT. The band 's encores included a haunting cover of Killing Joke's 'Complications' and of the Misfits ' Hybrid Moments,' which produced an old-school punk circle pit. The show was closed with 'Motherfucker I Don't Care,' 'Dead in Hollywood,' '197666,' and 'She Was a Teenage Zombie.'

As the Murderdolls' set came to a close after around 90 minutes, Wednesday 13 announced the song 'Welcome to the Strange' from the Freddie vs. Jason soundtrack and dedicated it to their fallen brother. "This one goes out to our friend Paul Gray, this was his favorite Murderdolls song, this one is for him," said Wednesday 13, before the band broke into the emotional song.

Jordison and the band bowed beforethe audience, full of spit, sweat, beer, make up and frizzled out hair. As the band exited the stage, Wednesday 13 promised a return to Hollywood. "We love each and every one of you crazy motherfuckers for coming out, we will be back to rock Hollywood again soon!""
