You know with a cover that looks like it came from an Advanced Dungeons & Dragons undead monster manual that this album is gonna smoke. In fact, this is great So. Cal., early 80's hardcore punk, sped up and with a sound similar to the Germs ("What We Do is Secret"), the first (and classic) Bad Religion LP, etc.
TSOL's lyrics focus more on the dark side, however, and because of this they're considered to be one of the most important L.A. death rock bands, too, along with 45 Grave and early Christian Death. "Dance with Me" was TSOL's first full length album, and every track is a rocker. At its slowest, the album is mid-tempo; at its fastest it is about as fast as anything else coming out of the punk underground in the early 80's. The drumming really shines through on the album opener, "Screams of Laughter," and the closing track, "Dance With Me," which are two of the best songs on the album. This LP also contains the classic necrophile's anthem, "Code Blue," covered by so many since.
