The Casket Creatures – Deranged (2016)


The Casket Creatures – Deranged (2016) Right off the bat, it’s my opinion that 2016 is already shaping up to be a good year for horror punk. It’s not hyperbole, and, while I’m not holding my breath for Glenn Danzig and Jerry Only to hug and make up, I have to say that the demon […]

The Jasons – Get Fucked (2016)


The Jasons – Get Fucked (2016) Horror punk comes in many forms, but rarely is there a group with the laser focus – or insane obsession – to dedicate their whole band, and each album, to one particular horror sub-set.

The Bloody Jug Band – Murder Of Crows EP (2013)


It’s been awhile since I reviewed the debut album from Florida swamp-noir rockers The Bloody Jug Band. The last I’d seen of these backwater maniacs was a blink-and-you’ll-miss-‘em appearance in a Ke$ha video as her “backing band,” but now, those boisterous buzzards have returned with a small slice of hellacious hoot-n-holler with their new EP, […]
