Track by Track Review
This is a nicely recorded horrorific Halloween epic with a moody melody and eerie sound. Rich and thumpy, with whistling and hobgoblins everywhere.
Link Wray's "Jack The Ripper" is played on the fast side, with an Oriental feel and dry chop rhythms. It's among the more unusual covers of this venerable song. Infectious and nontraditional.
Satan's Pilgrims' "Vampiro" is spunkily punked and thundered, with a rhythmic attack. Intense and a little dark.
