Horror Punk
« on: May 29, 2011, 04:35:11 AM »
I found this really cool horror punk song, The Garden by The Creepshow. I really like this song, and I found some other songs that they did were interesting, but one seemed a bit more lyrically friendly with Satan. Are there any horror punk bands that you know of who, while maybe darker than some, are primarily compatible with a Christian worldview?

Try the later Misfits- Jerry Only started getting really into Christianity in the late 80s going so far as to start a Christian metal band called Kryst the Conqueror.  He later dropped that idea, reformed the Misfits with less questionable lyric content.

YMMV on the quality of the work vs early Misfits.

Even satan himself can appear as an Angel of the Lord, and do good works in His name, to distract you from the path of True Righteousness

Yeah, the latter one.  A lot of early Misfits (or old school punk fans like myself)fans don't really dig the newer non-Danzig version of the band.  The Michael Graves era albums aren't bad, though, in my opinion.

yea i gotta say i love the early misfits when they were just doing punk.  not a big fan of their later non-punk stuff.
Let us the faithful now come together to praise our father, protector and teacher the pillar of the Orthodox faith and firm defender of piety even the wondrous hierarch Philaret and let us glorify our Saviour Who has granted us his incorrupt relics as a manifest sign of his sanctity.

One of my army buddies (former Ranger and all that other hooah stuff) likes the earlier Misfits but doesn't care for Danzig all that much...

I honestly don't know that much in the way of what could be compatible with Christianity, but I do know a lot of would not be...

My favorite band with a "horror" theme would probably be Germany's The Vision Bleak, though perhaps they're more on the metal side of things.

Here's a great Lovecraftian song by them, "The Shining Trapezohedron":

I'm not really familiar with "Horror" Punk; does it blend into Psychobilly at all?

A little bit.  Horror punk and psychobilly use many similar lyrical themes and both typically have a love for 50's oldies chord and melody structures.  Horror punk goes the more stripped down power-chordy early hardcore route, though.

The Horror Pops (Kim Nekroman's [of psychobilly group Nekromantix]other band) could be considered horror punk when they're not being rockabilly or new wave.

Thanks for the explanation.  I can't keep up, but then again, I always had loads of qualifications and labels that determined which stuff I listened to.

I'm an Eminem fan who listens to Emilee Autumn's pleasant and dark lyrics. You gotta define appropriate for me. Personally, I just don't want to hear God directly insulted or Satan/hell openly praised. E.G. Some Seether songs are good, but the band is not.

LMBO! Good one, Tallit!  When it comes to this type of music, I'm gonna go with your understanding.  But I'm sure not everybody likes country music either.

Please tell me you're a Bad Brains guy, or is that too obvious?  ;D

actually bad brains is rather tame compared to a lot of what I used to listen to and what I still dig into from time to time. I was a crust/anarcho/chaos punk when I was a youth, and that music is very hostile, aggressive, extremely political, and even rather nihilistic.  It is a universality amongst punks to be bitterly atheistic in their approach as well, and so actually bands like Bad Brains and Rastafari in particular were very attractive cross-over cultures for me at the time, when I was a bit too ambitious a radical and needed something more akin to hope rather then anger. Being a punk made me very angry about the world, Rastafari gave me the answers to solve the problems through love and faith, and it directly carried me into Orthodox to find Salvation and Divine love for the world, to give back to what I was once so angry about.

I still love to get into a serious mosh pit at a good punk show, but I don't go to as many shows, lately only to bands with more integrity and intelligence amongst their lyrics and fans, not just mohawks and patches.  A pit is something else entirely, it is a primal human bonding experience like a group hunt of wolves, it is not anger or fighting, but it is aggressive.  It is not a fist fight, quite the opposite, in a good pit when people fall down everyone nearby goes out of the their way to pick em up, and most people in the circle are hugging, embracing, or leaning on each other as they slam dance around.  It is almost a kind of angry political liturgy, where the music has frothed the people into a moment of Dionysian frenzy but in coming together in the circle of the pit and the density of the crowd, the people combine for a moment as one mind, and all that anger and pessimism about the world evaporates into the bliss of unison, in the sense of belonging and knowing other people agree.  It is a release.. Even at Christian punk shows there are pits, and these pits serve a bit of the same purpose.

 Of course, this is when it goes right, when a bunch of people thrash around things can go a bit wrong from time to time, especially of some folks have the wrong idea or intentions ;)
