CREEPING TERRORS, THE: Evil Witch Bitch: LP

Nov 22, 2017

The Creeping Terrors exist somewhere in a godforsaken, echoing void between deathrock, horror punk, and post-punk. Something like 45 Grave with more drum machines. The usual ghoulish topics—necrophilia, knife-wielding maniacs, dark sex magic—make an appearance within the first minute, but there’s more to the lyrical content than blood and guts. Unlike a lot of graverobbing bands I’ve heard, this English/Italian/Finnish duo’s feminist, anti-colonialist politics are front-and-center (see: “The Fascist Monster Must Die” and “A Dick with an Itch”). Refreshing to hear something truly subversive in horror punk every once in a while; this is campy, creepy-crawly punk rock steeped in the horrifying reality we’re living in now. –Indiana Laub (Self-released, [email protected])
