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?
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!
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.
