Before founding the Murderdolls, Wednesday 13 was the front man and guitarist of the Frankenstein Drag Queens From Planet 13, quite an odd and provocative band which released four albums and a couple of EPs between 1996 and 2002. As the Murderdolls have to make a break because another member is involved into Slipknot who have just released a great third CD, Wednesday 13 has gathered the musicians from Florida's grave rockers Death Becomes You in order to record new versions of old FDQ hits and to play live with this new formation. Of course, 6 Years, 6 Feet Under The Influence can't be considered as a simple best-of album because there are mainly new musicians and of course new versions of old songs. It's more like a tribute to FDQ. Even if the idea isn't uninteresting, I really doubt if FDQ were good enough to be awakened from their death sleep. FDQ play quite ordinary dirty rock with metal influences and sound like a boring Ministry or Butthole Surfers clone. There is no real highlight on this monotonous CD which definitely could have been shorter. The songwriting is uninteresting and the vocals can't convince either. It even hasn't enough quality to be used as a party entertainment. After 8 tracks, I decided not to continue listening to it any longer and had to change the CD in my player.
