SPOOKY, THE: We Have Risen: CD

Sep 20, 2017

Over the years, The Spooky have taken a genre ripe for ridicule and dismissal—”horror punk,” spawned from the Misfits’ early records and beaten into the fucking ground by a million lesser imitators—and managed to make tunes worth repeated listens. Their latest is no different, with song after song of anthemic and—dare I say?—poppy hooks and grim subject matter that makes the genre almost palatable, if only for the length this spins. Yer doin’ god’s work, boys. –Jimmy Alvarado (Nothing But A Nightmare)
