An Ode To The Chair

by Torrid Horror

Torrid Horror is organ-led tropical punk show-tunes with garish and sickly horror-ballad prose. AOTTC is a revenge song. It's a story of a woman's birth, the atrocities she commits, how she fights against the constraints of her disabilities and how she ultimately lets a murderous urge consume her.

New American Dream

by SeepeopleS

This track from renowned anti-genre pranksters was banned by Facebook! Listen and watch for yourself. The video was created and directed by world-renowned animator Pete List of MTV's Celebrity Death Match, and Marilyn Manson’s “Astonishing Panorama of the Endtimes”. The song is really just an examination of people who lust after power, and the perspective that those people might be a little sick in the head.

City

by Who Killed Nancy Johnson?

We're a four piece from Reading with a good reputation live but less so for recordings. We got fed with sterile, polite studios. So we spent £400 on DIY gear and booked a village hall in Oxfordshire for a weekend, and recorded an album. I SEE SIX is out June 2020. This is the second track.
