Electric Citizen Live, Cincinnati, 6/19/15
Kelly M. Hudson
It goes like this: Riff, riff, riff, Motherfucking RIFF! And the drums, colliding, cascading, pummeling, and yet always under control, alwa ys pushing the songs to swing, so your head bangs as your ass boogies.
The bass, that sensual throb, that thumping, propulsive and yet underlying bedrock of the songs.
And the voice, oh dear god, that voice: all at once possessing the sultry witchiness of Stevie Nicks combined with that lonesome and paranoid wail of Ozzy from the early 70’s.
This was Electric Citizen in concert.
They did a free show the other night in a nice little cool club in Cincinnati called the Northside Tavern. I have been listening to the Citizen for about a year now and my appreciation of them has steadily risen. The metal world is nearly drowning in stoner/doom/psych bands these days, a lot of them with a female singer, and the Citizen is exactly like these and so many other bands glutting the market and so they should feel stale or boring and yet…and yet…
Seeing them play, hearing the songs as they cascaded over the crowd, I couldn’t help but feel like I was witnessing the cusp of something great to come. It’s like I was there, right before the band went big. And will this band go big? Probably not. They’re a niche band in a niche market, but my fucking god it’s a crime if they don’t at least come to rule that niche or be considered as a part of its upper echelon. I mean, come on. The way the riffs were just pealing from the guitar (and his solos! Damn but Dolan can play!), the way the bass held it all together, the glue that kept the groove, the way the drums were so powerful and yet so melodic, and her voice, oh, her voice.
It truly was like I’d stepped into a lost and forgotten concert from the early 1970’s.
This show was something else. I encourage you to head out and get yourself some Electric Citizen. You can find everything you want at http://electriccitizenband.com/ from a video to links to buy their record and t-shirts and the like. I encourage you to do so. The underground always needs your help.

UK based horror-punk band Lupen Tooth recently released their complete discography on Bandcamp for free! The band is fronted by one of the most hardest working men in the horror business, Tommy Creep. If you don’t believe me, give him a quick search over the interwebs.
And on an interesting side note, Creep’s record label, Graveyard Calling has one of the most diverse and thought provoking roster of artists. If you don’t believe me, give it a look and see because without question, GYC needs your immediate attention.
It should come as no surprise that Lupen Tooth will be featured on our upcoming SPLATTERPUNK compilation.

“Deep into that darkness peering, long I stood there, wondering, fearing, doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before.”
– Edgar Allen Poe
1476 is a New England-based project of Neil DeRosa and Robb Kavjian. Self-described as Hermetic Death Rock, they released their first full-length album, “A Wolf’s Age” in early 2010, an ambitious and heavy indie rock release with hints of death rock, post punk, and shoegaze and released more since. The subject matter courses through occult and mythological themes as well as loves and lives lost. I don’t consider 1476 to be a horror-punk band or even gothic as their music has evolved and changes so much that I don’t even bother trying to put a label to their sound. It’s just 1476.
Their newest and upcoming release, “Edgar Allan Poe: A Life Of Hope & Despair” which is released on Oct. 31st is a must for any horror-punk/goth/dark morbid fan. This album, or “soundtrack” is dedicated to non other than the great Edgar Allen Poe. Each track has to do with certain events in Poe’s life and it’s something that makes each track special and you can feel the album progresses along. The album itself is fully instrumental with the with the exception of a spoken portion of, “Deep In Earth” written by Poe in, “Extraction Environs” and some lyrics in, “A Circle Is Eternal”.
Not concentrating on his literary works, the album music aims to explore the melancholic & quaint life, love, and death of Poe and you can feel it as the album goes along. It’s a very melodic, melancholy, and dark. An album which upon receiving has had multiple plays on my iPod and is something that you’ll find hard to put down. That fact that each track has to do with a certain point in Poe’s life is something incredibly special and makes each track that much more powerful. For example my favorite track, “Little Love Voice” has to do with Poe’s wife Virginia Eliza Clemm Poe. Edgar and Virginia were first cousins and though most looked at their eventual marriage with disdain, it’s believed their love was pure. The eventual death of his wife had a substantial effect on Poe, who became despondent and turned to alcohol to cope. Her death are believed to have affected his poetry and prose, where dying young women appear as a frequent motif in his work. This album exposes that and personally the music is so powerful that you almost feel that this is exactly how Poe felt throughout his life.
If you are a fan of Poe’s work and just into dark stuff this is a must pick up, the whole album being instrumental is a huge plus as I’m a sucker for good instrumentals. If you haven’t already pre-ordered the album you simply must and if not be sure to pick it up when the album drops this Hallow’s Eve! You will not be disappointed, this is a phenomenal album and one that I personally believe Poe would be proud to hear. I hope you all enjoyed the read and be sure to pick this album up, it’s a must.

I remember first hearing about these guys at GNO ’13 which also happened to be my first time seeing them. Obviously I had never heard the band before and so I looked them up and I cannot stress how happy I did. This is a band that ANY horror-punk fan needs to hear and check out. I have listened to the first two albums to the point I know the whole albums word for word even if it’s not playing. I received my copy of their newest album, “In Early Mourning” by frontman/guitarist/awesome guy Rob and I’ve been listening to it constantly. I’ve been listening to The Theatre Zombies for a good while now and every album they put out just keeps getting better and better and you’ll find the same on this album. I haven’t been disappointed.
I personally think that in given time these guys will get to the top ranks of horror punk. Songs like Dorsia, Stitch Me Together, Riding In Circles, Belfry Reverie, and Frozen Heart (my favorite) it’s hard to put this album down and I didn’t do so for a very long time. That being said, all the other songs on this album are great as well, I just find myself listening to these the most. It’s fast, melodic, cussing, in your face, and straight up horror-punk at its finest.
I have a feeling we will be seeing a lot more from The Theatre Zombies in the coming years and I personally cannot wait to see what else they haver in store for us. I really look forward to seeing them play live again, hopefully GNO 15??? I would love to hear some of these new songs live. I highly suggest and advise any fan of horror punk or just punk rock in general to check out this album and band. Pick up this album and everything else they’ve put out and add it to your growing collection.
