The beauty of the horrorpunk lies in some many influences, from classic horrorpunk to some ambient and darker music, to deathrock and metal influenced horrorpunk and acoustic stuff.
The Crooked Goblin is a brainchild of one singer, songwriter and multiinstrumentalist Rob Adams aka Rob Goblin. In this project, Crooked Goblin, the music is acoustic horrorpunk. There are 9 tracks on this album and the atmosphere it provides is old school black and white horror with emotional vocals, excellent lyrics and great melodies. I especially loved the use of samples from vintage horror movies like for example in “The Fog”, for me one of the best songs on the album, which I listened to again and again. The clever use of vintage synth sound in the background also added to the more horror atmosphere and beauty in the songs. All of the tracks on the album are great, but I must say that besides the above mentioned, “Cold, Dead Hands” and “They All Go Missing” are the highlights of the album for me.
Check this out and support Rob Goblin and his work. You can get the album for free on Bandcamp, but donate some money and show some love. It would mean a lot, I know.
