Thee Cormans - "Open The Gates" by forcefieldpr
Just in time for Halloween, Thee Cormans release new LP on In The Red Records
MP3: "Open The Gates" -
Fiends! Ghouls! Creeps! In the grand tradition of Frankie Stein & his Ghouls and The Deadly Ones, In The Red is proud to announce the release of Thee Cormans' Halloween Record w/ Special Effects - a bonafide Halloween rock n' roll album being dropped just in time for the only holiday that matters.
Southern Californian biker/surf instrumental combo Thee Cormans have been bashing out their brand of Davie Allan & The Arrows meets the Ventures on meth thrash for several years now. Theirs is a sound informed by scratched up 60's instrumental records, KBD punk records and exploitation B movies chock full of monsters, bikers and mayhem. What this group of weirdos does to the surf instrumental genre is very similar to what The Mummies did to Pacific Northwest 60's rock back in the 90's. That is they speed it up, drag it through the mud, pour a can of politically incorrect attitude over the top of it and call it a pie. In this case the pie is filled with rubber bats, plastic fangs and novelty shrunken heads.Halloween Record w/ Special Effects will make you shriek, rattle & roll! These are spine-chilling sounds guaranteed to make you shiver! Flesh-ripping guitar playing! Skull pulverizing drum beats! Gore-spattering bass lines! Spooky, hair-raising sound effects! The bloody horror of this record is positively sinister! You will hate yourself if you miss this!
In The Red can't be held legally responsible for death caused by heart failure or fright due to listening to this record. In other words, this record is NOT for sissies!
