Frigtmare "Midnight Murder Mania" LP Review

Frightmare “Midnight Murder Mania” LP 
   The B horror genre has definitely caught the attention of a crowd starting as far back as the Misfits back in the late 70s and Mortician in the late 80s/early 90s.  This Portland, Oregon death thrash/grinders band, Frightmare, has taken it to a new extreme starting off with their debut LP “Midnight Murder Mania”. The debut LP, which came out back in 2002 on Razorback Records, definitely defines the band’s obvious love for horror films of the 70s and 80s.  The machete-slicing guitar work of band mastermind, Maniac Neil (Blood Freak/Lord Gore/Whore), is definitely one of the highlights on this record, along with the depraved vocal work of Grisly Adams (Lord Gore/Fornicator/Blood Freak).  The band seems to create a disgusting mix of thrash/grind/punk/death/ and gore that would complement any old school B horror flick.  The band’s old school punk/thrash roots are also blended with elements of death and grind. This album is the perfect companion to the B movies, particularly with record tracks like “Crospy”, “Friday the 13th”,”Black Christmas”, and “My Bloody Valentine”.  This record for me is one of my personal favorites!!
