Well, this was certainly different. Since I began The Deadhouse I have been inundated with requests of bands looking for exposure and reviews. A few weeks ago I was contacted by S.H.O.U.T. wondering if I would be interested in having a listen to Dead Of Night and since I am always looking to not only expand my own horizons, but those of anyone who reads the site as well, I happily took them up on their offer. As you can see from the album art above, you are in for something completely different than the standard horrorpunk that many have become accustomed. That is not to say it is bad, just different.

Beginning with O.M.G. III, which is your standard horror album intro, it is with Hell On Earth that you get your first taste of what S.H.O.U.T. has to offer. I will be honest, I’ve actually kind of put this review off as I have tried to ascertain if I have ever heard anything quite like it. I suppose the best way I can describe it is to say it is like a mix of gothic metal and horror elements overlaid with vocals. There is no real singing involved, more spoken word storytelling.

As anyone could ascertain from the names of the tracks, the album revolves around the horror genre, as the band tells different stories throughout each track. For me, the standout track is definitely Things That Go Bump In The Night with its numerous references to Freddy Krueger from the A Nightmare On Elm Street series, Jason Voorhees from the Friday The 13th
series and Leatherface from The Texas Chain Saw Massacre.

If you are in the mood for something vastly different from the crowd, and certainly something that will assuredly stand out in anyone’s collection, then be sure to check out S.H.O.U.T.!
