Horror of '59 

Horror of '59 (Shark Attack/My Mind's Eye)

1756042.t.jpg

Horror of '59's second album sounds like circa-'78 Ozzy Osbourne fronting the new Misfits. The record is full of punky garage rock, with obligatory buzz-saw guitars, five-second hand-of-glory solos, and whoa-oh refrains. With all respect to the genre, horrorcore is like canned chicken soup: It's hard to fuck up or make special. Producer Jeff Shirilla produces and adds death-metal backing vocals to "Blood Zombie 2007," while wife Barb lays down some breathless-babe backup vox to "Black Wedding." The stew's not thick, but it's hot — and tasty, if you can look past the floating eyeballs.
