Who Are We?

Simply put, we're independent artists; artists whose sensibilities lean toward the grim. Why? Because we're paying attention. We realize that the world around us is filled with beauty but even beauty is dark, and sinister and surrounded on all sides but the grim aspects of life; human and otherwise. We're the people who circle the edges, never invited in because we're scary, unpleasant and often speak the truth too starkly.

We also realize this type of art is upsetting, and is often lead to slaughter. Most do not wish to know what lurks amongst the shadows and would rather blithely go through life unaware, unenlightened and ignorant.

Marancik, gripping the wheel as if he wished it were Roberta's neck, rushes his bitchy charge to a date with fate. The artwork Roberta has come to see represents a grand guignol-esque trip through a veritable romper room of wrong. read more...

Kitty In A Casket - Back to Thrill

Their latest release entitled Back To Thrill, is stylistically very similar to Horror Express but sees the band in a more self assured light. The new lineup is wound tightly to explode at a moments notice with pogo inducing power riffing. This is journeyman road rock from a punk-a-billy priestess and three working class ass kickers out to make a name for themselves. read more...

Hoar Frost

Brenda inhaled the essence of cold that had been Steven. She held her breath for ten seconds relishing the deep freeze within her. She then exhaled three times and each time she exhaled, a blue and white mist exited her lungs. One cloud went immediately to the side of the stone cave and frost appeared as it hardened creating beautiful patterns against the old gray stone....
