As of now the general public can stop by their local disc monger and pick up ‘Grim Scary Tales’, the anticipated new full-length from Chicago’s murder metallers Macabre, as it is officially unleashed upon North Americans today. As always, the band released the album on their own Decomposed Records imprint, with distribution in North America on this release via Willowtip Records.
In celebration of the album’s release, the horror-industry professionals at the almighty Rue-Morgue Magazine are hosting the premiere of a new track from the album on their website. Check out the rampant insanity and high-speed twang of “The Bloody Benders” on Rue-Morgue’s page HERE.
Recorded in 2010, celebrating the band’s 25th anniversary, the highly anticipated 14-track platter of splatter Grim Scary Tales presents the classic Macabre style fans have come to bloodthirstily expect, cleverly combining nursery rhyme sing-along quirkiness with ultra-tight, high-speed, gore/grind/death ingenuity. Their first full length since 2003’s blistering ‘Murder Metal’, Macabre have cleverly devised a “story book of murder,” as ‘Grim Scary Tales’ traces some of the most infamous serial killers and mass murderers.
From the beginning of recorded mass killers, the album progresses through the annals of the world’s creepiest ghouls, including Locusta, Vlad Tepes, Gilles Garnier, Elizabeth Bathory, Mary Ann Cotton, the Bender Family, Lizzie Borden, Karl Grossmann and more.
Recorded and mixed at The Ensomberoom by Geoff Montgomery (The Chasm, Coffinworm, Shub Niggurath, Couldron), this crushing album also bears original artwork and layout crafted by Scott Jackson of Monsterman Graphics and Rock N Roll Comics notoriety, perfectly visualizing the album’s gory nature.
