Your beloved Deadhouse curator Mister Gore with Argyle Goolsby.
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.
Before the show, which also featured performances from Canadian psychobilly act The House Of Haunt and the incredible Cryptkeeper Five, I had the chance to sit down with Goolsby to discuss his new album, Darken Your Doorstep and what is next for the man in terms of touring, The Roving Midnight, The Hollow Bodies and his thoughts on the horrorpunk scene and its growth over the past few years.

The Deadhouse Presents Cuts From The Slab
Greetings fiends and ghouls. Your friendly neighborhood Mister Gore here with an absolutely huge announcement.
The Deadhouse launched in December of 2013. Since then, my goal has always been to spread the word of horrorpunk music. There is no denying it is a niche market, but I feel over the years that we have been successful at the very least in helping bands covered get their music to new ears. Now, with the help of my friends Tom from The Mutant Members Only Club and Dom from The Bastards, an idea I have been batting around for a while is becoming a reality. Click through for all the details of The Deadhouse Presents Cuts From The Slab!!!

I should start by making a confession… When I first started The Deadhouse back at the end of 2013, I never expected it would afford me some of the opportunities that it has. The point of launching the site initially was to give me a chance to write which has long been a passion of mine, while also helping spread the word about these hardworking bands that deserved recognition. While horror movies, books and television shows are also covered, the focus has always been on the world of horrorpunk. As the site gained notoriety I’ve been able to get in touch with several artists that I’ve long admired. Last year I was able to do an interview with Argyle Goolsby, one of the men behind Blitzkid, my all-time favorite band. And now I have had the opportunity to do an interview with the one and only Al B. Damned, who is a close number two behind only Blitzkid for myself.
So without further a due, and to help promote the upcoming March release of For Old Time’s Stake, here is our exclusive interview with Al B. Damned!
When I began The Deadhouse nearly a year ago, one of the very first bands to get in touch with me and help support the site was the incredible Salt Lake City horrorpunk band Shadow Windhawk & The Morticians. Since our review of one of 2014’s absolute best horrorpunk albums, Casket Spray (review here) I also had the opportunity to partake in an interview with the entire band, which was the first interview to appear here on the site (the interview can be found here). Now, after a successful IndieGoGo campaign, the band has been taking things to the next level, and has just unleashed their debut music video for Halloween 63 upon an unsuspecting world. In an effort to hopefully bring even more eyes to the video, I wanted to put this article up so that the world can see that with enough heart, talent and an unrelenting love of horror that any band can take the horrorpunk world by storm.
