Last year’s Hymns From the House of Horror was so much fun to stitch together that we’ve decided to try our monstrous hand at it again! For Hymns From the House of Horror II, we’ve gathered 20 skull-knockin’ cuts – some previously unreleased, some rare, some sneak peeks – from a host of horror bands, spliced them together with trailers for imaginary grindhouse movies we’d surely love to see (created by RM staff and friends), and are offering it as a free download, complete with printable album artwork designed by Justin Erickson and hosted by Rue Morgue Radio’s Tomb Dragomir!
Hymns From the House of Horror II will only be available from Rue-Morgue.com at the stroke of midnight on MAY 1, 2011, and only until July 31, 2011. After that, it’s gone forever!
Starting tomorrow, we’ll be announcing bands from this year’s line-up on the brand-new Hymns From the House of Horror Facebook page every day until our latest creation is unveiled. “Like” us, check out photos and videos from last year’s comp, and get ready for Hymns II, a new slate of terror tunes to mortify your musical senses! Get the full rundown on all of the bands who’ve lent us tracks in the upcoming May issue of RM#111.
