(record review)STELLAR CORPSES-“Hellbound Heart e.p.”(Batcave Records)

Stellar Corpses is a five piece band coming from Santa Cruz, California. They´ve been around for quite a while now and their unique blend of horrorpunk, psychobilly and gothic even metal is a winning combination for me since I first heard them.

This is their new e.p. and it contains five songs.

The title track features a guest being none other than Jimmy Calabrese of the horrorpunk legendary brothers trio Calabrese. This song is a powerhouse and new anthem for the live gigs and singalongs. For me the best song and my absolute favourite of the record that´s been on repeat a lot is “She´ll Claw Your Eyes Out”, the melody of that one sticked to me for days and nights after hearing thie record. The opening melody of “Darkside of the American Dream” is so haunting that leaves you daydreaming for the night and darkness. “Cruel and Unusual” is a rockabilly and gothabilly inspired horrorpunk anthem and I literally saw lightning bolting from my stereo speakers while listening to this little song. I just love dark romance and drama which is a standard in horrorpunk, so “In Her Lover´s Arms” was just right for me to imagine my dying bride. This e.p. is excellent!

10/10
