Rock 'n' Roll. Hell. Two great tastes that taste great together. Long before Elvis gyrated on the Sullivan Show or the Beatles toiled the smoky red-light bars of Hamburg, music has been sowing the seeds of liberation. Or damnation. With each new generation the edge of rebellion pushed farther. Rhythms quickened. Volume increased. Lyrics coarsened. The rules continued to be broken, until it seemed that there were no rules at all.
And as waves of teens cranked it up and poured it on, parents built walls of accusation to explain their offspring's seeming corruption. Sex and drugs, demon worship and violence are the effects. Music is the cause. Or so the self-styled guardians of morality would have us believe.
Meet The Scream. Just your average everyday mega-cult band. Their music is otherworldly. Their words are disturbing. Their message is unholy. Their fans are legion. And they're not kidding. They're killing. Themselves. Each other. Everyone. Their gospel screams from the lips of babes. Their backbeat has a body count. And their encore is just the warm-up act to madness beyond belief.
It emerged from a war-torn jungle, where insanity was just another word for survival. It arrived in America with an insatiable lust for power and the means to fulfill it. In the amplified roar of arena applause there beats the heart of absolute darkness.

Didn't make it that far.
I am a great lover of Audible, and its offerings. I have listened to many, many audio books over the duration of my membership, and even though the majority of the narrators are stellar, there are some that understandably are not. This has never deterred me from finishing. I have never before stopped listening to a book until it is completed. This was an exception. I really could not stand one more second of this fellow. I do believe the storyline was good, and worth finishing, but as I have stated, I just could not continue. I probably will get the hard copy and go from there. Sorry if you liked his performance, but I found it just too much to handle, with the singing, the baby noises, all much too much. The snippet I listened to prior to purchases didn't seem too bad, but after multiple hours it became like nails on a chalk board for me. If I could give the narrator half a star I would.
