Creepy crawling throughout the night

MIGHTY SPHINCTER's masterwork is a supremely vicious blood banquet of sin. There is a fine line between lunatic absurdity and sadistic violence. "THE NEW MANSON FAMILY"'s little commune of superbly crafted songs straddles that line and then humps it frantically. The band's amazing technical and compositional skills moves this album's material to deep degrees of complexity and menace. Especially Doug Clark's frantically twisting guitar, which stitches these songs together with razor wire. The overall mood lurches from the drug-fueled frenzy of zombified Mansonites, to stately vampyric ballads on immortatilty and such, before finally arriving in front of some spook house at a sleazy carnival. Only those meddling zombie Mansonites have murdered the spook house's staff, taken their place, and are now torturing centerfold models. Enjoy!
