If you’re a vinyl collector and a horror fan, you’ve probably been keeping track of the fantastic stuff that’s been coming from Waxwork Records over the past few months. If you haven’t, now’s the time to start: April 1 marks the start of pre-orders for the label’s upcoming release of John Harrison’s classic CREEPSHOW score! Hit the jump for all the details and some exclusive images…
Rue Morgue contributor Liisa Ladouceur checks in with a review of Skinny Puppy’s recent show at Toronto’s Sound Academy.
February 18, 2014
The day that Skinny Puppy’s “Live Shapes for Arms” tour thundered into Toronto, February 18, 2014, the music news world was focused on the fact that date was the 40th anniversary of the release of the first KISS album. No doubt that debut was important to rock ’n’ roll. But when it comes to celebrating the impact and longevity of a group, I am personally much more excited that next month marks 30 years since Skinny Puppy released its first cassette, Back and Forth.
Fancy a bit of horrorcore morbidity to get you through the day? Check out the video for “Planning a Murder,” the latest track from Hymns from the House of Horror vets So Sick Social Club featuring Sid from Slipknot.
“Planning a Murder” is the second video single from The Underworld, out now from Reel Wolf Records.
Legendary punk rockers Electric Frankenstein are teaming up with The Cheats for a new split EP, and we’ve got an exclusive EF track to help get your electrodes primed for it!
Rockamania #1, featuring cover art by Jeffrey Lamm, is scheduled for an early 2014 release from Pittsburgh-based Screaming Crow Records. The EP will feature three new Electric Frankenstein tracks, including “Frankensong,” which you’re hopefully streaming at this very moment. Mixed and produced by Mark Rinaldi, these tracks are EF’s first new recordings in two years.
Austin-based performance art group ArcAttack have released a very cool video of two singing Tesla coils and a robot playing the main theme from Pacific Rim. I don’t really have anywhere to go after “Tesla coils” and “robot” and “Pacific Rim,” so here’s the video.
(In case you don’t know, singing Tesla coils are like speakers only entirely different. They’re made out of, um, science. I use mine mainly to control the weather and hang clothes, and had no idea you could do this with them.)
