Stereo Terror: Sematary Spawn – Music For Maniacs Vol. 2

Late last year I was thrilled to come across Sematary Spawn, a project from Hamilton-based artist Mike Trebilcock, and produced a Stereo Terror review of the project’s first release, the appropriately titled Music For Maniacs, Vol. 1. If you read the review (and you really should!) you know it was almost like a blast from the past with songs that were reminiscent of the horror movie themes from the 80s, and I mentioned anxiously anticipating Vol. 2! Well, the day has come, and Music For Maniacs, Vol. 2 is now available for everyone’s listening pleasure! So, how does it stack up to its predecessor?

Stereo Terror: Chaneys – Legacy

Well, Russia is all the rage these days if you pay any attention to the political spectrum and news channels, but fuck that noise for now, and let’s check out some horrorpunk noise from Russia! Chaneys were formed on October 31st, 2017 (my 32nd birthday just for the record) and back in October of 2018 they unleashed Legacy, six tracks of their take on horrorpunk.

Stereo Terror: The Prople – Why Even Ask?

Being lucky enough to have struck up a friendship with band members Markky Karloff and Kari Frankenstein, I was excited to check this album out and see how it follows up on what they did with Revenge, and I have to say, Why Even Ask? is a great follow-up, showing a lot of growth while retaining what made these guys special in the first place.

Stereo Terror: The Thirsty Crows – Hangman’s Noose

When the opportunity to take a look at Hangman’s Noose, the new album from South Bay psychobilly act The Thirsty Crows, I imagined this would be one for my good friend Psycho Billy take a look at. But as fate would have it, this one has landed in my lap. Longtime readers know I am not exactly the biggest fan of psychobilly/rockabilly music, but I am always willing to expand my tastes. And in this case, it worked out rather nicely.

Stereo Terror: The Lycotones – Monster Hop!

The Lycotones is the brain child of Mikey Garou, and Monster Hop! is the band’s first official release. If you’ve read my reviews in the past of albums that could fall in the doo-wop style (especially those from friends of The Deadhouse The Mutant Members Only Club and The Bastards) you’ll know it’s very hit or miss for me personally, so how does Monster Hop! work out?

Psycho Billy’s Slaughterhouse: Voodoo Zombies – Reviresco

Are you looking for a combination of stomping psychobilly and spicy Spanish accents? Well I have found the band for you! Voodoo Zombie is Chile’s first psychobilly band and is sure to inspire a resurgence of the genre from that part of the world. “Reviresco” was released on the Los Angeles-based record label Batcave Records. This album was recorded at Calavera Estudio and was mixed/mastered by Rene De La Muerte at Batcave Records. When you are a psychobilly band with both Dusty and Rene’s support you know you’re doing something right.
