Let it be noted right from the start, this is not your traditional horrorpunk album. While Bloodshed is very much born out of the scene and still an active part of it, his music has evolved over the years moving slightly away from the traditional horrorpunk sound with each subsequent album. I was listening to this album in the car with my girlfriend and she noted how it was a step away from what I normally have blasting when I get into ‘review mode’ and I plainly stated that if old school Danzig and Queen were to ever have made a lovechild it would be Robby Bloodshed and if they made an album, it would be 21 And On.
I’ve been noticing a litany of new groups popping up all over the Great White North. One of these bands just happens to be based right here in my hometown of London, Ontario called Running From Daylight. Back in November I did do a Stereo Terror review looking at their debut album, Coffin For Two, which you can check out here. So when standup bassist/vocalist Garrett Keith hooked me up with an advanced copy of the band’s newest album, Elvis Ain’t Dead Yet, I was more than thrilled to dig into what my fellow Londoners had put together.

It’s no secret that Wolfman Chuck has been a long-time supporter of my work here on The Deadhouse. Just click his name there and you will see I’ve done numerous reviews and an interview with the man, so when I was presented with the opportunity to check out his newest project, backed by a full band with a more metal edge to the music, I jumped at the opportunity. I won’t lie here, I was also privy to some of the demos as this long gestating project came to be, so I had a bit of an idea of what to expect. But even with that knowledge I had no idea how great Safe Space would turn out. Hell, it may be the best work the man has ever done!

Stellar Corpses have been one of the most popular and enduring acts in the horrorpunk and psychobilly genres for over a decade now. Things have been pretty quiet over the past few years since the 2012 release of their last album Dead Stars Drive-In, but with the release of a single (which has been retooled for inclusion on this album) and a cover that was featured on HorrorHound Presents It’s Only A Movie they’ve kept fans clamoring for new music. And on Friday, April 13th fans finally get their wish with the release of the new Hellbound Heart EP.

Death rock and horrorpunk go hand-in-hand in many ways. So I always ensure that when I am looking for new music, or have some new music presented to me for an opportunity for review, that I check it out. Not all of it makes the cut at any given time, but the new debut album from solo artist Joe Becker is an interesting one that piqued my attention. And I am sure that it will grab some new listeners that are part of The Deadhouse cult.
Disaster and bandmate Jimmy Moon spent the better part of the past two years working on We Are The Filthy Ones, aiming for it to be the heaviest album they could while staying within their acoustic horrorpunk sound. So, how does the album come across with this change in sound direction for the band?

It’s rare that I will take a look at an album so short that it only features two songs, but sometimes you hear something that just clicks. Certainly being the case with the new release EP 1 from Mexico’s Fiend Cats.

Hailing from Arkhangelsk Romero’s Nation was formed in 2008 and has had a few releases over the years, but the band came together to release a brand new LP just as 2017 drew to a close. The aptly titled Punk Rock Zombies gives you an idea of what the band is bringing to your earholes from the title, and once you crack into the album you are treated to some awesome old-school sounding horrorpunk!

he idea of a ‘concept album’ has been really hit or miss in the horrorpunk genre, so I did have a few reservations when it was explained to me that the album is based around and serves as a tribute to the king of the b-movie gimmick, William Castle. For those of you unfamiliar with that name (and shame on you!) Castle was known for attaching gimmicks to coincide with the theatrical releases of his films, from having skeletons hanging in the theatre, to rigging the seats to vibrate during certain scenes.
