Matadors Horrorbilly 9000

Matadors Horrorbilly 9000
Offering up energetic psychobilly like it’s going out of style, the Matadors once again prove themselves to be this country’s kings of horror-obsessed rockabilly with Horrorbilly 9000. More fun than American counterparts like Tiger Army and less silly than Horrorpops, the Matadors seem perfectly ready to bring the psychobilly sound to all the Canadian kids that have yet to realise just how badass a pompadour can be. Writing fantastically catchy songs like "Demon Riders,” the band never stray from the classic rock swing of their obvious influences, but still succeed in injecting a very modern energy to every one of these 13 tracks. With enough "whoas” to make any Misfits fan proud and wailing guitars to please any disciples of the Reverend Horton Heat, the band never slow up, stopped only by the fade out that ends the album-closing "9 Shots of Bourbon.” Fast, fun, and respectful to the Cramps, Horrorbilly 9000 is scary good.
