Wednesday 13, the Duke of Spook just released his 9th and most deadly full-length studio album to date, “Horrifier,” today (Friday, October 7th) via Napalm Records.
During Wednesday 13‘s twenty-year career, he has cultivated a unique macabre image while climbing to horrendous fame with his electrifying solo music and The Murderdolls. Now he’s back with a new slathering of 11 terrifyingly grim and groove-inspired anthems to get the blood pumping and brains melting. “Horrifier” is a musical journey into the 20-year career of the musician, and it offers killer horror punk energy with a gruesome metal attitude and 80s glam melody.
“Exhume and Devour” is an aggressive, industrial-edged song, while “You’re so Hideous” has an insidious and infectious sing-a-long chorus, “Good Day to Be a Bad Guy” is the album’s surefire hit, while “Insides Out” is an intensely suspenseful and gruesome song; nothing short of what you have come to expect from the Duke! The album also includes two movie-themed songs, which Wednesday 13 had stepped away in recent years but is now returning to; “Return to Haddonfield” and “Christine: Fury in the Night.”
Correspondent Robert Cavuoto spoke to Wednesday 13 about his 20 Years of Fear – Part 2 Tour, paying tribute to Joey Jordison by performing three The Murderdolls songs live, if he would ever consider doing a full The Murderdolls tribute concert, his decision to no longer play guitar on stage, the musical aspect his fans will love about “Horrifier,” and the importance of finding the band’s signature sound.
