Horror of 59 

Screams From the Cellar (Sonic Swirl)

6245.0.jpeg
The members of Horror of 59 look like juvenile delinquents who ended the doo-wop decade with a fatal game of hot-rod chicken. Decked out in leather biker jackets, the Cleveland quartet has been playing retro horrorcore for just over a year and is now releasing its full-length debut. Fiends, if you're breathless for the new American Werewolves disc and tired of sub-par efforts from the Misfits family, Screams From the Cellar will slake your bloodlust.

While the hardcore Werewolves lean toward the '50s, the bandmates of Horror of 59 have a foot in the '60s and their minds in the grave. In gutfests like "Human Remains From Outer Space," singer Bob Noxious is content to pick a morbid theme and run with it. The band more than makes up for the subtext-free lyrics by playing gravelly, old-school punk rock with occasional bursts of garage, sludge, and other grimy metal subgenres. With the Horror boys howling whoa-oh choruses, Screams From the Cellar is the soundtrack to the sock hop of the living dead.
