In our continuing attempt to make Halloween last all week, I’ve randomly picked four more Halloween-appropriate metal songs from the slew of suggestions we got via this post on Halloween Day.
First, we have “Evil Dead” from Death. As SurgicalBrute said when he suggested this one, how could this not make the cut (though “Zombie Ritual” would have been a fine choice, too)? Then I picked a live video of King Diamond performing “Come to the Sabbath”. Tikan’s actual suggestion was the “classic” Mercyful Fate rendition of the song, but this video is so full of cheese (and boobs) that I couldn’t resist it. After that, we’ve got some horrorpunk (thanks to Trollfiend) from a German band called The Crimson Ghosts; this video is pretty cool.
And finally, with thanks to .jh, we’ve got The Coffinshakers and their odd brand of goth country. Not metal, but definitely Halloweenie.
Lots of clean singing in this collection, but I’m holding my nose and doing it anyway — after the jump.
DEATH: “EVIL DEAD”
KING DIAMOND: “COME TO THE SABBATH”
THE CRIMSON GHOSTS: “SOMEWHERE IN A CASKET”
THE COFFINSHAKERS: “HALLOWEEN”
I love the Coffishakers!
I got one of their albums after they were mentioned here, actually.
That King Diamond clip is awesome!
