Former W.A.S.P. guitarist Chris Holmes unveils video for single “Devil Made Me Do It”
Ex-W.A.S.P. guitarist Chris Holmes has released a video for his new single “Devil Made Me Do It.” Back in or about October 2020, Holmes started an Indiegogo campaign to raise funds for his new studio album. As of December 2, 2020, it appears that $8,367 (16%) of the flexible goal of $52,166 had been raised.
Sleaze Roxx stated the following in its review of Holmes‘ C.H.P. album that was released back in early 2016:
“Holmes‘ new album CHP is actually a regurgitation of the “best” of his two prior solo albums given that the ten tracks on CHP consist of four songs from 2012’s Nothing To Lose, six tracks from 2015’s Shitting Bricks and two live tracks. I have never heard those two solo albums in their entirety — I never felt compelled to — but I did see and hear the videos in support of those albums. The first video for the song “They All Lie And Cheat” that Holmes released with him handling the lead vocals was so bad that it appears that Holmes has pulled the video, which is now no longer available for viewing on YouTube.
The next track to get the video treatment was “Way To Be” which was a lot better than “They All Lie And Cheat” but still a subpar song to listen to. “Let It Roar” from the Shitting Bricks album showed promise and seemed to have Holmes adopting a lot of the old W.A.S.P. sounds. “Born Work Die” wasn’t bad either with what sounded like a slide guitar. Even “Get With It” wasn’t bad with some decent melodies and strong guitar tones and sounds.
However, the one common denominator with all five of the songs featured on those videos is that Holmes simply can’t sing. Not only can he not sing, he is a horrible singer at best. It’s simply painful to hear him sing…”
