THE MISFITS: "WALK AMONG US"


The Misfit's "Walk Among Us"(1982) is in my opinion the greatest horror-punk album of all time. It's filled with catchy irresistible choruses and hooks, shredding tempos and guitar playing, darkly cartoonish, gory, horror and sci-fi lyrics, and the excellent vocals of Glen Danzig. Every song is a classic, with some of my favorites being "Skulls", "Astro-Zombies", "20 Eyes", and "Night of the Living Dead". You will find yourself with these songs stuck in your head for days, months, even years. I love all of The Misfits' work with Danzig, but "Walk Among Us" is my personal favorite because of the unrelenting pace and the additively catchy songs. Give this one a listen if you haven't already. I can't recommend it enough.
