(record review)The Bastards-“Return To The Earth”(Ukulele Horror Records)

Are you ready for some acoustic horrorpunk? The acoustic in this genre gives a special atmosphere to the songs and bands, and though I am not a great fan of acoustic punk, horrorpunk sounds great when it is done acoustic. The Bastards are hailing from USA and this is their new e.p., so I am happy being able to discover this band and review their record.


This band is made of two members, being Jimmy Moon on guitar and backing vocals and D.C.Disaster, lead vocals. This record contains four songs of acoustic horrorpunk. The songs on this record are apparently the band´s favorite songs from their 2016 “Being Human” record done with a slight different arrangement and re-recorded for this release. Now, I haven´t heard the original versions of the songs, but I loved the songs on this record. My favorite song is “Earth Invaders” having a classic horrorpunk vibe and reminding me vocally a lot of Trevor from American Werewolves. Also “Necromantic” is an excellent song having a weird but beautiful doo wop vibe. The rest of the songs are also fine, melodic and atmospheric, ideal for chilling in the warm Summer darkness and planning youe next mischief while enjoying  the songs of The Bastards. If you love horrorpunk and if you love it done acoustic, then this is the right record for you to enjoy, dear fiendettes and fiends!
