If you like hard rock or metal, listen to these 3 bands.
The Misfits will be a halloween inspired band until the day they die. Always been my favorite and theyve been around a while so they know what they are doing. Too many great pieces for me to name a favorite album but "American Physco" is deffinately a popular one. They are coming out with a new record on October 4th.

Rob Zombie, incase you may not know is also a horror movie director (he makes masterpieces). Awesome tunes there.

Dance Club Massacre is the heaviest. I'd call it death metal or grindcore. The song that made them popular i believe was "Murders Come With Smiles". A brutal album by them would be "Circle of Death".

Hit me back with any responses. Friend me if you like what im talking about.

Speaking of The Misfits, they have a new album coming out Oct. 4th called "The Devil's Rain"

Not sure how good the album will be but the artwork is amazing. Arthur Suydam (Marvel Zombies) did a great job.

Yea, i mentioned that Dr. Scratch. I agree, i didnt like their last album much but thats because its no longer the misfits era. They will always be cool but cool because of their old stuff.

By "no longer the Misfits era" are you talking about Michale Graves no longer being in the band?

Got a friend that heard it already - start to finish - straight from Jerry Only. He says it's good. He's an old-school Misfits fanatic, so I have to believe it's going to be good...

I'm going to see them at a club date in November and meet the band (same friend is hooking us up). :D

I loved the Michael Graves-era songs the best (the older Danzig is decent, but rough - but then I'm listening to the rough cuts too... :eek: ) and Only does a good job, but my fave songs are from when Graves sang with them...

A friend (used to see him all the time when we worked together, but now he's off somewhere and I'm off somewhere else...need to get back in touch with him!) does some of their concert posters and artwork:

Flynn is scary talented and I know he's got tons of other independent labels he designs for... I just noticed he's done a few for Necromantix too. :D

I'm all about the Danzig-era myself. I enjoy Famous Monsters but don't care for American Psycho.

What do you mean your listening to the rough cuts?

I've got a Misfits boxed set that goes back to the 1970s - stuff recorded live at clubs on really crappy equipment. (Legacy of Brutality/Earth A.D./session recordings and alternate takes) Nice, raw stuff with them cursing out the crowd and breaking strings and having a great time. :D

I have both of the Michale Graves-era albums and think they're pretty good, but the Danzig-era will always be my favorite. Sometimes I wish the recording quality wasn't so rough on the early albums, but then again that's part of what makes them endearing to me! :)

Besides the disc of demos the box set isn't rough cuts it's just a collection of albums and singles they released. Danzig wanted it to be a collection of nothing but demos but that didn't happen. I could have done without the dreadful Evil Live album. I don't see anything wrong with the recording quality of the stuff on Collection I or II, Earth A.D., Legacy Of Brutality, or Static Age. Guess that's just me though the Misfits stuff sounds like they spent years working on it compared to stuff like the Mummies or The Trashwomen.

If your looking for something more polished maybe you should try Walk Among Us, their most polished work. Though it’s not as polished as the stuff they did with Graves.

FG- is that available on iTunes by any chance? Was it a formal release? That would be AWESOME to hear.

It was a formal release by Caroline 16 years ago, the same label that reissued all their singles collections and albums besides Walk Among Us.

Everything in the box set is available on iTunes except the disc of demos. The demo disc is the only thing exclusive to the box set.

New album comes out tomorrow so i deffinately have to rock my orange misfits shirt to school. I heard a couple live songs off of the album on youtube and i wasn't impressed but thats a bad source so theres a good chance ill be proven wrong. However i was watching an interview with Jerry Only earlier and he was saying how he didnt like the hate and brutal lyrics that the band was was giving off before and wanted to change it to a more appropriate and positive experience. I'm not someone who raves over bad language and curses like a trucker but thats the misfits style and taking that away is taking away part of the misfits in my opinion.
