Killer Zombie Rock/Metal Songs!





So everyone loves a good Zombie film, program or game! With the recent return of the biggest Zombie TV show, the majorly successful The Walking Dead I thought this would be a good opportunity to look at some of the best zombie inspired/themed rock offerings to 'get your teeth into'! Not all songs are strictly about zombies in this post, and in the extended playlist below, but they are related/associated in some way and can easily be linked to them! 


Get yourself in a zombie state of mind below!!



Cast of Season 6 The Walking Dead TV show 




To get things in motion in a crazy fast fashion, it has to be what I think is one of the best Zombie inspired songs by one of the biggest metal bands from the US! This song featured on the movie soundtrack for the first Resident Evil film, which is inspired by the popular Capcom games. Be prepared to loose your shit!!





Slipknot - My Plague








It would be offensive to not feature this next song/artist as they embody the very essence of the living dead, and even go as far as to have 'Zombie' in their band name! They are also multi skilled, as well as writing music about the undead, the front-man is also a film director/producer of horror films...




Rob Zombie - Living Dead Girl 










This song has to be mentioned - it's relevant, infectiously catchy and fun as hell! The song itself is inspired by a film of the same name and is taken from the 
Transylvania 90210: Songs of Death, Dying, and the Dead album. Wednesday 13 is the stage name of Joseph Poole, who is largely know as the front-man of horror punk band, Murderdolls. You seriously need to listen to this!




Wednesday 13 - I Walked With A Zombie










Again drawing influence from the Resident Evil films, this time turning to the third instalment of the films, with Resident Evil Extinction soundtrack, where this song features, as well as playing during the credits. The alt rock band from Las Vegas recorded, "Contagious", which was based on the video game Resident Evil 4.



Searchlight - Contagious 









My last zombie contribution comes from a Swedish hard rock band, with the appropriately titled, 'Dead Rising'! They formed back in 1996 and are signed with the popular record label, Spinefarm Records.



Sparzanza - Dead Rising









I haven't featured all the zombie themed songs here, but check out the rest in this deadly playlist I have created!  



Enjoy!! 






Feel free to get in touch and let me know of your favourite zombie songs! Also if you want me to do a specific feature on something else, drop me a comment or message!

INTERVIEW: Cellar Darling (Switzerland)

INTERVIEW: Cellar Darling (Switzerland)


Cellar Darling is comprised of Anna Murphy, Ivo Henzi, and Merlin Sutter who recently formed following the spilt from previous well-known folk metal band, Eluveitie. The trio have been hard at work since, creating their anticipated debut album 'This Is The Sound' which was released June 30th via Nuclear Blast Records and have impressed fans and press alike with their fresh and unique sound which has been dubbed as "the new wave of folk rock“. This is an exciting and busy time for the band, so I caught up with them to find out about their origins, their new album, touring and what is in store for the band amongst other things..

Can you tell us about the formation of Cellar Darling following leaving your previous band Eluveitie and how the band came to be?
Merlin: What I remember most clearly is how quick it went. As you might know, the whole thing with Eluveitie came very unexpected for us - we were informed of a decision by the remain…

REVIEW: Bobaflex - Eloquent Demons

Hard Rockers Bobaflex from West Virginian are back to wreak havoc with their eighth album ‘Eloquent Demons’ which is the follow to 2015’s ‘Anything That Moves’, this sees not only their first release through Thermal Entertainment but their first actual label release in a while after the band decided to go independent. They are a very hardworking and tireless band, having extensively toured, and even setting records for this, they certainly don’t do anything by half measures.
The opening intro and title track sounds very appropriately evil, with a creepy intro speech to set the scene whilst we wait for the demons to be fully unleashed…
First proper track ‘I Am Nightmare’ immediately sees heavy dark guitars and melodic group singing, which give it a classic feel with a gritty edge and is possesses a hell of a powerful chorus, not to mention a killer solo – this will be hard to forget.
Keeping the momentum going is ‘Long Time Coming’ which is equally as hard-hitting, with groove ridden and…

INTERVIEW: Mutation (with Ginger Wildheart & Scott Lee Andrews)

Interview with Ginger Wildheart & Scott Lee Andrews of Mutation 


Mutation are an extreme metal act from the UK formed in 2013 by well-known vocalist/guitarist Ginger Wildheart, the man behind the rock group The Wildhearts and the frontman of Exit International, Scott Lee Andrews. The trio is completed by drummer known as Denzel (Dean Pearson) who has been involved in many projects with Ginger and plays in Young Legionnaire. I caught up with Ginger and Scott to discuss the beginnings of Mutation, the new album '‘Mutation III: Dark Black’, touring, the future, mental health and much more in this interesting and honest interview.



As a musician who has played in many bands, most notably The Wildhearts and formed many projects, how did you come to form Mutation and why when you did?

Ginger: I did it mainly because I wanted to make the music that was in my head, and it didn’t look like anyone else wanted to do it.

At the time I was playing and writing with Michael Monroe, and while I l…
