Happy New Year you gals and ghouls! This has been an up and down year personally but, all that stuff also brought me back! I missed this and I missed all of you, the bands, everything! Thank you for welcoming me back!
Well, they are still showing Christmas movies so, for those still in the mood or looking for those perfect tunes for next year, give these tunes by Grave Robber a spin! One of the best in the game today, these tunes are perfect for the holiday season. Opening with "Have Yourself A Scary Little Christmas", "We're A Couple of Misfits", a cover of "You're A Mean One, Mr. Grinch", "Gramma Got Half Eaten by a Zombie" and their cover of "Joy to the World" are just some of the highlights on this great little package of music. So, spread some cheer, watch for those zombies and just sing along. It's really a fun bunch of songs that you'll love year in and year out.
So, greetings from the Great White North. May I offer you a local blend of Horror with the latest offering from The House of Haunt collection in Blood on the Silver Screen? This album picks up where they left off with their previous album with a great and catchy blend of songs that you just can't help but love on first listen! I implore you to listen to songs "Blood House", "Hetzhund", "Mary Mallon", "Salem Girl", "Hot Rod Frankenstein" or "Fang Binite" and not want to move, groove and sing along to those songs. "Drinking with the Boys" sounds like a song straight off a Dropkick Murphys album and I just LOVE it! "They Come at Night", "Cutlass (Live)" and their live cover of Electric Dead's "Lucifer's Blues" are also show stoppers on this album. So, enjoy this fantastic 2019 blend as the year comes to a close and forgive us for Justin Bieber and Nickleback, deal?
2019 would not be complete without sharing my thoughts on the latest album from one of my favorite bands in Vagora. Maybe not Horror Punk in that Misfits sense, they have kinda been accepted by the scene and, musically, they can do whatever they want! Their latest album Sackcloth & Ashes is proof of that as DeRaven, Hyde, Bloodshed and Nameless deliver some of the best songs of the band's career so far! "The Bridges I Burn", "Rest After Death", "New World", "Queen B", "She Never Says Goodbye", "Sandra of the Land", "Red Headed Slut", "Kaliste", my personal favorite on the album "Vinyl Stars", "Eye for an Eye", "Day After Sunday", "In the Stars", "Walk Away" and "The Gold" are just fantastic pieces of music! Songs that can stand with anything they have done to date! Never ones to disappoint, if you have not checked them out yet, it's never too late to discover awesome music by an awesome band. So, just ask for forgiveness and give them a listen! You'll thank ol' Jekyll that you did!
