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.

As so many bands in the genre happen to go, it seemed they went the way of Jerry Only’s intergrity. Then just a few days ago I received a message from Mr. Toxic himself insisting I head on over to Spotify and look around. To my great delight, it appears that The Suicide Ghouls are back with a new album, chock full of 15 tracks of their signature take on the genre.

A brand new outfit from Clarksville, Tennessee, FUZZRIPPER is a band that seems to have been in the planning stages for some time with the band coming together only shortly before releasing their debut album based around several serial killers, the appropriately named Nightstalker

Whether it be through his early work in The Texas Drag Queen Massacre through his solo work which has had a rocky path over the years, Acoustic Nightmares Vol. 1 is essentially a love letter to fans of the man’s career. Including songs reaching back to 2008’s TDQM release Sick Little Things, there is nothing left unturned for this album.
