(record review)Ghost Road-“Appalachian Apparitions”

Ghost Road was founded in 2015.and they hail from the Morgantown area, West Virginia. Sounds familiar? Well, it should, West Virginia is famous for my favourite  horrorpunk band ever besided The Misfits, namely Blitzkid.

When Blitzkid disbanded in 2012.I thought that no one is able to fill in their shoes. The beauty of the horrorpunk scene is its relatively small existence and variety of styles and influences. So, everyone who says that horrorpunk bands are only Misfits clones can fuck off! I am off the topic, and the theme is this album. The record contains 12 excellent upbeat and energetic horrorpunk tracks filled with aggression, melody, drama and creepiness, as is needed in horrorpunk. I was at once blown away by the opener “Wolves and Man” all to the “Coming Home” and when I listened to that one, I swore that I am the fan of this band until the grave and beyond. Musically, the guys remind a bit of early Blitzkid. Vocals are very important in this genre, and the vocalists Michael and Jeff have a great couple of voices, not sounding like anyone´s clones. “Let it Bleed” gave me goosebumps on my skin being so wonderful. This record is the reason why I love horrorpunk so much and while there are such bands as Ghost Road horrorpunk will remain underground, secluded and followed by beautiful fiendettes and fiends.
