Silent Horror - Self-Titled

Silent Horror may be new to most people. but their self-titled release is not their debut. in fact it's a re-recording of their cd "Giant Monsters from outa Space"(2009) and the "Beware"-ep (2008). the main diffrence to the original songs is, the singer that was summoned by the Red Spectre for this album: Argyle Goolsby (ex-Blitzkid). together the trio known as Silent Horror gave new life to the classic SH-songs. the new atmosphere of the music definitely makes this album one of the best releases in 2014 (even without new songs) and is a must-have for all horrorpunks outthere. 
EDIT: the fact that the band doesn't exist anymore in this constellation doesn't make the music on the album bad. just saying.

The Horror Family about the scene: Slaughter Lamb & Demon Machine


"[Horrorpunk] carrys a message beyond the created Horror atmosphere. This is inspired by people like Edgar Allan Poe and George A. Romero who also carry a political subtext in their works."

Reckless Dodgers - Relentless

You've been warned to "Be Prepared". Now it's time to get "Relentless". With their second album, the Reckless Dodgers give you 10 songs filled with all kind of emotions and tunes full of energy. Mountain punk at its best. This new release is a must-have for everybody who likes punkrock - especially fans of Green Day, Face To Face and such. So my advice is: put the album in your player, grab a drink...and get relentless!

The Horror Family about the scene: Jamey Rottencorpse

Jamey Rottencorpse and the Rising Dead

"the Horrorpunk scene (in Germany) is very familiar..  it´s like we are all related..  of course, you have 1 or 2 uncles or aunts that you don´t like that much, but still, it´s all family"

Review: Dr Hell - Drunken Zombies

In the last two years, Dr. Hell evolved from being "just a little ghoul" to one of the best german horrorpunk bands. With their second full-length album Drunken Zombies, they continue to bring the "punk" into horrorpunk. But while the band kept their humor in the lyrics, the music definitely changed. Compared to their debut, Drunken Zombies has more energy and sounds a bit heavier and snottier. you can hear on this album that, thanks to many live shows and partys, Dr. Hell grew as a band.... but still delivers raw punkrock and drunken fun for all you undead listeners out there.  

The Horror Family about the scene: Zero Delorean


"Musically [Horrorpunk] is all over the place, from metal to 50's doo-wop, pop-punk to hardcore punk, it's just important that element of horror is there"
