If you have the feeling in the dead of night that someone, something is watching with a dark lust in their eyes, then feel yourself very lucky if it is the crypt stalking horror rock conjurors Dirty Danzig. Not that you will be safe in their company or escape a horrendous fate but whilst committing their heinous deeds they might just treat you to a healthy dose of musical sensation to be found on their demo, Horror Vibes From Nowhere. The release from the Italian trio is a delicious mortuary of cinematic mayhem and thunderous ground shaking menace which ignites the fullest fire deep inside.
Formed on Halloween in 2010, the Grottammare threesome of mayhem in the persuasive shape of vocalist/guitarist Christina Deth, bassist Kellen Deth, and drummer Markus Carpenter, with no surprise bring the heavy influence of Glen Danzig into their creativity, from both Misfits and Danzig eras. Despite that obvious spice the songs which make up the EP stand as their own aural death dealing card with a presence which stands the band away from and to the fore of most. The release is also inspired by horror movies with film soundbites relating to the songs they inspire, a potent introduction to what are unreservedly compelling songs.
Voodoo Death opens up the all-consuming horror, a track which within seconds has the senses dancing through its raucous riffs, punchy rhythms, and the excellent vocals of Christina, her delivery a biting yet seductively melodic instigator of pleasure and intimidation. Her vocals snap at the ear as well as harmonically caressing them to add extra menace to the predatory basslines of Kellen, the merciless beats of Markus, and her own insatiable guitar abrasion. It is an excellent song which is pure infection and total magnetism, a storm of Misfits, Mongrel, and Calabrese like splendour.
The following House on The Hill with its sample of Vincent Price from the film House On Haunted Hill has attention riveted before a note is lit but when the track explodes into vindictive action the addiction is pure and torrential. Like the first it is prime horror anthem as catchy as a fever and energetically a brawling irresistible burn upon the senses. It is a rawer assault than its predecessor but leaves just as rich and potent a satisfaction through its unrelenting growl and predacious riffs framed by bone splintering rhythms.
With already a full submission to its terrific confrontation the band seal the deal with the ferocious Vampire, a track which goes for the jugular, naturally, and dances on its victim with a fiery groove spearing a tempest of uncompromising rhythms and gnawing riffs, whilst the vocals just tear at the senses with bloodlust. It is another simply outstanding encounter to end the release but…the band has not finished with its prey yet. As the final note leaves its glorious scar keep patient and wait within the silent shadows of the release as the band have one hidden unnamed treat to enjoy. The mystery song is a furnace of intensity and energy, a bear of a track with more muscle and hunger than before and just as much majestic malice.
Horror Vibes from Nowhere is quite brilliant; a hellacious ride from a band in Dirty Danzig which has one drooling in anticipation for what is next and breathless from what they have just inflamed the heart with.
