The 6th Carol of Creepmas: Coventry Carol by Jill Tracy


Coventry Carol is a Christmas carol dating from the 16th century.
The carol was performed in Coventry in England,
as part of a mystery play called The Pageant of the Shearmen and Tailors.
The carol refers to the Massacre of the Innocents,
in which Herod ordered all male infants under age two in Bethlehem to be killed.
The lyrics of this haunting carol represent a mother's lament for her doomed child.
It is the only carol that has survived from this play.

Jill will perform the song tomorrow at her Online Christmas Concert!
You can get all the details and a ticket to it here.

The 5th Carol of Creepmas: Flowers and Lies by The Barrow Wights


Why'd I pick this as a Creepmas carol?
Because Santa is a lie, sadly.
(Krampus is totally real though!)

The song and video are from The Miskatonic Acid Test,
a forthcoming film from American Entropy Productions.
The plot?
In the late 60's, things went very wrong at a psychedelic
rock concert in witch-haunted Arkham, Massachusetts.
As the drugs and music peaked,
Miskatonic University's Philosophy Professor took the mic,
and began to read phrases from a book called Necronomicon.

The film consists of "found footage" of that infamous night;
the people, the atmosphere, the music... and the horror!

The Barrow Wights are one of over a dozen bands created for the film.
The songs, by Dark Lord Rob (of ex-The Not Quite) and Jim Terry,
will be available as a double-CD released concurrently with the film.
Comment with your email to win a free download of the album!

I'll pick a winner on the 13th.

Release The Bats is on Dulcet Jones' second Halloween album,
which features spooky, progressive, instrumental music.

The 2nd Carol of Creepmas: I Remember Halloween by The Ghoolz


This song is just as awesome as Halloween by The Misfits.
And it's perfect for Creepmas,
cause it's all about holding on to Halloween.

The Ghoolz are a Michigan-based band that make raw,
catchy-as-hell, 50s-influenced horrorpunk.

I Remember Halloween is on their first self-titled album,
which features Karen Cooper on the cover, as you can see.
(She's my favorite ghool from Night of the Living Dead.)

You can get it on slime-green cassette or digitally on Bandcamp here.
The cassette has 2 bonus songs,
which are also on Amazon MP3 here.

The 1st Carol of Creepmas: The Tooth Fairy Night Theme by Videogram


This is a reminder that Santa isn't the only housebreaker.
I find the tune soothing, yet unsettling (which I love!),
especially combined with the artwork by Saccstry.

It's one of several killer tracks on Videogram's first full length album,
which is a celebration of the glory days of VHS. 
Written specifically for the Italian Horror Week.

Created as a trailer show for a fictitious video label,
the album offers a selection of sounds ranging from gritty slashers
and post-apocalyptics to supernatural horrors and cannibal freak outs. 

Dedicated to the directors, producers, actors, composers
and video labels of 1980's horror and exploitation.

You can buy the album here.

I'll pick a winner on the 13th.
