The Jasons have been kicking around the scene for about half a decade, and sadly for several reasons have been labelled a gimmick band. Whether it be the look, the insistence on working their songs around themes from the Friday The 13th series, or even the masterfully done Get Sued album where they blended Ramones songs with Misfits lyrics, the band has never really been given the credit they rightfully deserve.
The Devil’s Sons are a psychobilly band out of Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. They are fronted by Brad Graves on guitar/vocals with Fernando De Los Santos on upright bass/backing vocals and Johnny Crash on drums. Their most recent EP Black Moonshine was released in fall 2018 through Batcave Records and this one sure is a banger!
This one has been a long time coming. It was last summer when I first interviewed Argyle Goolsby before his performance with the Roving Midnight in Toronto where we discussed his plans to release a studio recording of the Hollow Bodies acoustic side of his music.
A sad reality of the horror music scene is that many bands come and go on a very frequent basis, with more bands releasing an album or two then disbanding then bands with a level of staying power. Sadly, the band formerly known as JasonXVoorhees, who changed their name to simply JXV before the release of what will now be the band’s swan song. Ritual may only be eight tracks long, but it hits like a ton of bricks.
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!
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?
Based out of the seventh circle of Hell (also known as Toronto, Ontario) The House Of Haunt are one of the few bands keeping the world of horror music alive in the Ontario region. For me personally, I had heard the name being rumbled around but sadly never got around to giving the band a chance until earlier this year when I was able to see the band live opening for Argyle Goolsby And The Roving Midnight in Toronto along with The Cryptkeeper Five. To say I became an immediate fan would be an understatement as I told guitarist/vocalist Fang following their performance
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 review style. So let’s get to it!
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?
