Ok, beloved Ghouls, Franconia has more to offer than the well known Dead United or your favourite THEM!. Franconia also has Dr. Hell, a bunch of cheeky young punk rockers from Bloody Island.
So, let’s talk about another pack of rockres from the New Breed Of German Horror Punk. Your humble host, the Dead Doctor, has been listening to their selfreleased debut „When I Was Just A Little Ghoul“ and to put it in simple words, he liked it.
Dr. Hell offer a pretty upright sound, harsh punk rock riffs, straight rythms and raspy vocals. They do not stay with complex tunes and they don’t linger on playful ingredents. They simply march their way on a direct line to their destination, and this destination seems to be the hellish eclipse of rock’n’roll.
If you go and see them, do not expect any kittenish guitar solo or tricky drum fills, expect what it is: A straightforwart kick in your face with a heavy boot called Rock’n’Roll.
Make sure not to miss them, if you have the chance.
The Dead will return, the whole world will burn!
Ok, beloved ghouls, all of you have heard about it, most of you have been there. So what is to say about the Graveyard Rodeo?
Well, your humble host, your beloved Dead Doctor, had the chance to play there, which is a double premiere because it was not only THEM! playing their premiere Graveyard Rodeo but also the event took place in Leipzig for the first time.
And it was simply great.
I am not going to talk about the bands who where, in simple words, brilliant. Alexx Sleaze, the founder and main organiser of that event, chose some really great artists to perform. Nobody expected less than that and he achieved success in every point.
What I want to talk about is the people being there. Everybody was kind, nobody, musician or not, showed any inappropriate attitude of any kind. Everybody was there for everybody. Even if the crowd did not rave in extacy with every band, they at least showed their respect and approval for what the artists did on the stage. The people selling merch took care for each other and it was all in all a great night.
I’d like to thank everybody who was there, everybody who brought this series of events to the next level, everybody who welcomed the artists, known or unknown.
And I pity all of those who haven’t been there… but hey, there will be another Graveyard Rodeo going on… don’t miss it!
Yes, your humble host, the Dead Doctor, has been there, seen it. He has experienced the horrors spread by the bunch of fiends called Dead United.
What to say about those franconian freaks? First, they are cheeky as hell.
Dead United don’t give a wet fuck about convetions, they do it for the fun of it. They take the word PUNK in its true form. They mix their own songs with cover versions and are even not afraid to perform a really hot version of the well known Time Warp.
When performing live Dead United are like a really weird mix of classic Horror Punk and the Rocky Horror Picture Show, spiked with a good amount of insanity. Not only the band itself creeps the stage, no, they are accompanied by a bunch of henchmen, mummies and the well known Dr. Horror who leaves his wicked tomb for their shows.
Your beloved Dead Doctor knows that some voices are croaking about them not being „true“ Horrorpunks, but hey, who gives a fuck?
Dead United guarantee a good time filled with weird romance, blood, gore and ripped out bowels. If you get the cance to see them, move your rotting corpse out to watch and listen to that bunch of freaks rocking the stage!
