And now, they are readying the release of their sophomore album, The Equinox. And not to reveal a spoiler too early in this review, but they certainly aren’t worrying about the sophomore slump, coming through the speakers with a confidence most bands can’t touch.
Hailing out of one of the punk capitols of the world, Southern California’s Bat$hit!crazy. (boy that’s gonna take it’s toll on my spell check through this review) are a four piece band who may not look the part in the least, until you hear the music and the words. The band took a rather eclectic approach building to this, their first full-length album. Releasing a series of four three-song EPs, all with intertwining artwork, the band has put them all together to form their self-titled full length.
Austria’s horrorbilly kings Bloodsucking Zombies From Outer Space (or BZFOS for short) have been kicking ass and taking names for well over a decade (hell, their ‘Greatest Hits’ album from a few years back was entitled Decade Of Decay). Now, after years of ruling in the underground scene, the band is poised to break through and bring horror to the masses with All These Fiendish Things!
Greetings fiends and ghouls, and welcome back to another edition of Mass HyStereo where we take a look at a few different albums in more of a rapid fire fashion, so without further ado, let’s get to it!
You can’t really go wrong when you get a great horror-based song thrown together with some great low-budget horror flick scenes!
Greetings fiends and ghouls, and welcome to the first of many, the premiere of Deadhouse Radio! Head on over past the break to stream the first episode!
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!
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.
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.
The comic tells the tale of a post-apocalyptic future where a group of beings called the ‘Ungulate Collective’, a group of animals who have evolved into a more human form that take over the planet and enslave the human race.
It’s finally come. After what seemed like an eternity for many fans, the first true full-length solo album from Argyle Goolsby has dropped. The hype machine for this album has been strong, with The Deadhouse fully participating. In case you missed them somehow, you can check out our two-part interview with Argyle Goolsby by clicking here for Part One, and here for Part Two. So now that the album has been out and the initial hype has died down a bit, how does Darken Your Doorstep hold up?
Greetings fiends and ghouls! If you missed Part One of my interview with Argyle Goolsby you can find that here!
Read on for the second part of the interview conducted on June 15th before the Argyle Goolsby And The Roving Midnight show in Toronto, Ontario! And click here to get Darken Your Doorstep in digital and click here to grab a physical copy!
June 15th, 2017. The day that I finally had the opportunity to meet, interview and see Argyle Goolsby live for the first time. As anyone who has been reading The Deadhouse knows, my all-time favorite band is Blitzkid. While I never had the privilege of seeing them live, seeing Goolsby play in Toronto, Ontario at The Rockpile is likely the closest I will ever come to that opportunity.
For many fans, myself included, Wednesday 13 will hold a special place in their horrorpunk loving hearts. Whether it be his work with Frankenstein Drag Queens From Planet 13, Murderdolls or his solo work, Wednesday, much like The Misfits, has acted as a gateway band from the more popular forms of rock, metal and punk to the depraved and beautiful world of horrorpunk.
