American Psycho is an album by the Misfits. Released May 13, 1997, it was the first to be recorded and released without the band's co-founder and former leader Glenn Danzig. Bassist Jerry Only, after years of litigation, reached a settlement with Danzig and was granted the rights to use the band's name and image to record and perform. The album additionally marked the addition of musician Michale Graves.
Originally, the album was going to be titled Dead Kings Rise, a play on the band's resurrection, but was changed when the title track didn't make the album. The album was produced by Daniel Rey, who has produced for artists such as the Ramones and White Zombie.
Entertainment Weekly (5/16/97, p.117) - "Their goofy formula of lyrics inspired by bad horror movies, poppy vocals, and blasting hardcore is still excellent mosh-pit fodder, and new frontman Michale Graves is a dead ringer for Glenn Danzig before he found his fortune as a heavy metal crooner." - Rating: B
