Exclusive Horrornews Interview -Â Mickey Finn – Cold Blue Rebels
1. How would you explain the sound of Horror-punk-Psycho-Rockabilly?
Mickey Finn: Slightly gothic, dark and dramatic, a heavy blend of Punk and Rockabilly, country like Johnny Cash back in the day had a definite dark undertone. And the more creepy punk bands like Misfits, and 45 Grave, opened the door for kids who didn’t quite dig the romantic side of … Continue reading
How did TWITCH THE RIPPER get its name?
The name comes from referencing Italian giallo films from the 60′s and 70′s. It’s a bit of a play on few of the tittles that have influenced us artistically.
I think itâ€™s safe to assume that if youâ€™re a horror fan you like a good song, and if you a music fan you like a good horror movies. Does TTR have a … Continue reading

Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta aka Lady Gaga steam rolled the music scene in 2008 and gave us pop hits like â€śJust Danceâ€ť and â€śPokerface.â€ť During these initial introductions to Gaga, no one was really ready for the chaos and notoriety the â€śHaus of Gagaâ€ť was about to bring on.

Interview: Chris Motionless Band: Motionless in White
How did the band, motionless in white, for formed?
Angelo and myself (Chris) were good friends in highschool and started the band with a few of our other friends. Over the years we just kept having member changes till we found all the current members we have now. It’s been a long process but we’re finally settled now for good.
This is only too appropriate as we creep and crawl towards the greatest holiday of the year… for a horror fan.Â Â Halloween & The Nightmare Before, is celebrated darkly by this cover from Marilyn Manson.
Who can forget the infectious and spine-chilling remake of â€śSweet Dreams (Are Made of This)â€ť by the quiet and conservative (kidding) man who goes by the name Marilyn Manson? It was back in 1995, when mainstream radio introduced us to the man who paraded in white makeup and creepy outfits.
Who can forget the devil worshipping accusations that sprinted forward by parents and religious groups. Manson entered … Continue reading

The music will dig under your skin, and there’s not much you … Continue reading
