Duke Lion Fights the Terror!! is the debut album by Big Dumb Face, released on March 6, 2001.

Music and lyrics[edit]

The musical style of Big Dumb Face was influenced by Ween and Mr. Bungle.[3] Wes Borland stated that the band's music is "really silly and idiotic and bizarre. [...] It's nothing but stupid [...] just all these retarded songs."[3]

Reception[edit]

Allmusic writer Kieran McCarthy described Duke Lion Fights the Terror as "a mediocre Ween rip-off."[1] Rolling Stone wrote, "Wes Borland has picked up Ween's affectations (pitch-altered vocals with wacky accents, ultra-chintzy synth beats)...for genre mocking....working up a functional head of silliness a few times." CMJ called the album "A sick marriage of over-the-top death metal and Ween-y pop....it's an absolutely ridiculous record, chock full of pitch-shifted voices and ludicrous lyrics." Entertainment Weekly said, "Dumb? Check. Big? Not likely. But at least Duke Lion Fights the Terror isn't only about the nookie."[2]
