Crypt 24 (if you don't get the reference, then you're not quite as cool as I thought you were) is the newest band to hit Atlanta's horror rock scene. Taking good old fashioned blood & guts rock and roll and infusing it with a bit of punk attitude, rockabilly flavor, and a flair for the macabre, they just keep getting better and better every time I see them. They recently went into the studio to record some new tunes, so stay tuned to SOC for the low down on the release. So guys, what does Halloween mean to you?
"Halloween is one of the last remaining seasons where both young and old have a moment in time to lose all inhibitions and become ‘someone’ else. The child in each of us still remembers the excitement of finding that ‘special’ costume, the magical change in the weather, the treasures we brought home from our neighbors and picturing in our minds the ‘monster in your closet, creature under your bed’ as the night ended all too soon!
CRYPT 24 grew up on classic horror films, Famous Monsters of Filmland Magazine, Vampira, Elvira, etc. All this, and more, has influenced the direction of our music.
Combining offbeat humor in our lyrics and a passion for the old black and white horror flicks, this unholy trio stirs up visions of zombies, vampire girls, werewolves and all those lovely things that go bump in the night! Playing in a horror/rock band, every day for us is Halloween! What could be better than that?"
19 days 'til Halloween, Halloween, Halloween. 19 days 'til Halloween. Silver Shamrock!
