(record review)The Savage Seven-I Cut Loose In The Zone

The Savage Seven are from Detroit and they recently released their new record and I listened and reviewed it for this zine.


I must admit that I have never heard of this guys prior to this record and I am glad that I discovered them now. This record contains 6 songs. The music of The Savage Seven can be described as a mixture of horrorpunk and 70-ies rock with garage punk thrown in the song structures making the material sound melodic, but gritty and dirty. The whole record sounds to me a bit like soundtrack from those Grindhouse movies and remind me of some bloody, gory, slasher like Rob Zombie´s flick 31 or similar. I liked oriental guitar in Roadside Burial and wild rock n roll energy in Mini Bus Meth Lab. This record is dark, but also has so much energy to fill in your bloodcraving black soul for a while leaving it wanting more. 7,5/10

(record review)Gutter Demons-No God, No Ghost, No Saints

Gutter Demons are back! Their fifth studio album is here and I listened and reviewed it for our zine, so check out their music and read this review!


The birth of this evil goes back in 2001.Montreal, Canada and Gutter Demons are considered godfathes of Canadian psychobilly scene, being a great inspiration to bands like Creepshow or The Brains. The new album contains 11 songs of cold, dark and evil atmospheric psychobilly that makes your gut twist and your brain wanting blood, wanting more and wanting it now. Besides psychobilly, the music of Gutter Demons has punk and metal influences. I can even hear some Danzig influence in Devil˙s Hand and some Slayer I heard in Psychotrons. But, don´t get me wrong, this is neither metal nor punkrock, this is great psychobilly with a lot of darkness, blood, guts and horror in lyrics the way it should be, besides also exploring darker side of human psyche. For me, the best songs on this record are the above mentioned Devil˙s Hand turning from metal to fast energetic killing ground, Ghostrider and Cold Call. Good one!
