EATEN BACK TO LIFE: : Love You to Death: CD

This pop punk band is a bit too cheerful to share a name with a Cannibal Corpse album. Still, they show plenty of love for the horror genre with tributes to A Nightmare on Elm Street, Evil Dead 2, and more. While their subject matter tends toward the more noteworthy horror films of the ‘80s, they’re sonically closer to those flicks that didn’t quite make the cut, the forgotten slasher shit that even the real horror weirdoes have lost track of, the ones that went straight to VHS and are so poorly lit that the screen is black for half the movie. They’re grimy and unpracticed, with bad vocals and too-shrill guitar, but fun nonetheless.
