Mötley Crüe’s "Shout at the Devil": A 40th Anniversary Reprise Box Set

When Mötley Crüe unleashed "Shout at the Devil" upon the world in 1983, they etched their names into the annals of heavy metal history. Now, 40 years later, the release of the "Shout at the Devil 40th Anniversary Box Set" not only revisits the album that rocketed the band to infamy but also celebrates the unbridled spirit of an era it helped to define.

The original album, now remastered with aural finesse, bursts forth with renewed vigor on an orange/yellow splatter LP, its tracks as audacious and raucous as they were at the height of the Satanic Panic.

The remastering process honors the original's raw edge while lending a clarity that allows each decadent riff and anthemic chorus to strike with more precision.

The box set is a treasure trove, a true homage with its red/white splatter LP of demos and rarities revealing the band's creative process, a Shout at the Devil CD and cassette for a nostalgic trip, and collectible vinyls of hits like “Looks That Kill” and “Too Young To Fall In Love.” These inclusions are more than memorabilia; they are the tangible echoes of Mötley Crüe's climb to the pantheon of metal.

Accompanying these are artifacts steeped in the band’s notorious aesthetics—a Devil Board complete with a metal planchette, tarot cards featuring the band members, and an array of devilishly designed accessories that immerse fans in the Mötley Crüe experience. Not merely content with audio, this box set invites fans to a sensory and interactive experience reminiscent of the band's live shows.

The Anniversary Box Set’s centerpiece, two 12” x 12” litho art prints of the "Shout at the Devil" blood album cover, captures the essence of the era—aggressive, unapologetic, and visually extravagant.

As for the music, the demos and rarities are a revelation, offering a raw glimpse into the bones of tracks that would become staples of the '80s metal scene. Hearing the evolution of songs like "Helter Skelter" and the unreleased "Black Widow" is to witness the alchemy of Mötley Crüe's music-making.

Released on July 28, 2023, with six discs in total, the "Shout at the Devil 40th Anniversary Box Set" is not just a collector’s item but a multisensory dive into the heart of Mötley Crüe's golden era. It stands as a testament to the band's enduring legacy and a defiant shout that echoes through the decades, ensuring that Mötley Crüe's devilish roar remains as immortal as the band itself.

Rock on!
