about

Reviews for "Casket Spray" -

“Casket Spray is a labour of love intended for the monster kid in us all. 4.5 / 5." - Rue Morgue Magazine

“When most people think of Horror Punk vocals they either think of Glenn Danzig or Michale Graves from Misfits or Argyle Goolsby from Blitzkid, until they hear Shadow Windhawk that is. There’s something about Shadow’s intense passion for the scene that really shines though in is vocal range. His voice can be hauntingly delicate; yet aggressively rich.”
- Devolution Magazine (UK)

Ranked as one of 2015's top 5 best albums by Devolution Magazine (UK).

“This offering emits a pleasant nostalgia that immediately takes you back to the time you smelled the pungent latex of your first rubber mask, or felt the autumnal wind on October 31st.” - Rue Morgue Magazine

“With so many great horror-punk bands right now, it's hard to stand out above the rest... but this EP shows that Shadow Windhawk does just that.” - HorrorHound Magazine

"If you aren't a rabid fan of classic horror/slasher movies, there's still plenty to appreciate on the debut album by horror-punk/doom trio, Shadow Windhawk and the Morticians, from the pervading spooky mood to the killer guitar and pounding bass." - Salt Lake City Weekly

"Seriously, if there was ever a Frankenstein's Monster of Horror Punk music, this EP is it. The Morticians masterfully combine the eerie horror subgenre with an equally unsettling doom metal/stoner sound to create the much-needed come-back album that Horror Punk has been dying for."
- iTunes

“These songs have all been extremely well written and make this an album that I wouldn’t write off as just another generic horror-punk album. Songs like, “Halloween ’63″, “The Ossuary”, and “Midian” are proof of that.” - Technicolor Terror

"Led by Windhawk‘s one of a kind vocals, Casket Spray announces itself as the first big horrorpunk release of 2014." - The Deadhouse

"This is some really awesome and frankly unexpected stuff. I was particularly blown away by the epic and beautiful 'Midian'. The song is honest in its own way, and particularly passionate. It resonates with me in a similar way to the film. It's a song for the freaks. For the discarded and the lost. And it really hits the mark." - Horror-Punks.com

+ + +

Six songs inspired by death, love, horror films and old VHS tapes, written during one cold October in Salt Lake City.

Experience sounds from beyond the mausoleum...

Track Name: 1428
1428
Music and Lyrics by Shadow Windhawk

In a house on Elm Street
Suburban sanctuary
September '80 was a horrifying time

In a house on Elm Street
Glen is calling Nancy
In shock white terror Nancy stays awake all night

T.V. and headphones on
From evening 'till the dawn
Can't fall asleep or I might wake up underground
1428
This prison seals my fate
1428
God help me stay awake

Bottle of No-Doz
And Mr. Coffee in my room
Wish I could just nod off and wake up in the afternoon

A demon spectre with a glove of razor knives
He waits inside our nightmares
For a teenage sacrifice

T.V. and headphones on
From evening 'till the dawn
Can't fall asleep or I might wake up underground
1428
This prison seals my fate
1428
God help me stay awake

No more need to wonder
Why the kids all die at night
Kruger's come for souls and murder's on his mind
Dirty fedora, a rotting sweater, bloodshot eyes
Baby don't you fall asleep, cause Freddy comes for you Tonight

T.V. and headphones on
From evening 'till the dawn
Can't fall asleep or I might wake up underground
1428
This prison seals my fate
1428
God help me stay awake

One, two, Freddy's comin' for you
Three, four, you better lock your fucking door
Five, Six grab your crucifix
Seven, Eight we're gonna stay up late
Nine, Ten...never sleep.

Never sleep again
Track Name: Midian
Midian
Lyrics by Shadow Windhawk

visions of death with hollow button eyes
a plague of nightmares raging,
swallowing my life
is it me? or is it all just in my mind?
well am I really here, or is it all a lie?

and there’s a place where monsters go
when the world has crumbled
when I have lost my soul
I hear it whispered in my dreams
in the crypts of Midian, forever I’ll be free

I was born of natural earth
scarred by memories of a violent world
in that ancient cemetery when I close my eyes
I am reborn a nightbreed bound to hide from light

in mortal flesh I was shot dead
and in the morgue I laid, pale, cold and red
but in my blood they called to me
Boone now you are no more, Cabal you now shall be

and there’s a place where monsters go
when the world has crumbled
when I have lost my soul
I hear it whispered in my dreams
in the crypts of Midian, forever I’ll be free

I was born of natural earth
scarred by memories of a violent world
in that ancient cemetery when I close my eyes
I am reborn a nightbreed bound to hide from light

I carry horrors in my gaze
beyond these broken gates
where the chaos reigns
cut out my vacant heart and toss it all away
when everything is gone, I pray that I’ll return to you someday
Track Name: The Marsten House
The Marsten House
Lyrics by Shadow Windhawk

It was a dark day
When I returned to Maine
the town where I once lived still haunts me to this day
strike up a match and light my Pall Mall to start the flame
Iʼll burn the ʻLot down to the ground and end the pain

Inside the Marsten House the evil calls my name
sweet sucking sounds as children scream in agony
Just hold this crucifix and swear that you have faith
beneath the floorboards of Evaʼs place
the master waits

another drink, another drag
itʼs clear no God will save us,
surrounded by the dead
now Salemʼs Lot will burn away
Light up another Pall Mall
Chase the morning rays

and Iʼm haunted
and Iʼm haunted

and I'm haunted

beneath the ashes they still call my name
beneath the ashes they still call my name
beneath the ashes they still call my name

they still call my name

and I'm haunted
and I'm haunted...
Track Name: Halloween '63
Halloween '63
Lyrics by Shadow Windhawk

Halloween in ʼ63
the perfect autumn night
butcher knife and candy, stabbing Judith sweetly
now thereʼs no time left for all her blood to dry

I want to feel your sorrow
when you look in my eyes
and on my throne of death Octoberʼs flame is burning bright
this decayed sanctuary, where dwell her murdered cries
the rage I am becoming...wonʼt let me die

Iʼll never die

1,2 1234

fifteen years have come and gone
dead leaves burning and the darkness returning
candied dreams of Laurie and my butcher knife
this latex face will hide me from all the pain inside me

tonight I will come home
jack oʼ lantern grinning by my side
when death becomes my name
all must suffer on this night

tonight I will come home
jack oʼ lantern grinning by my side
when death becomes my name
all must suffer on this night

on this night

YEAH

I want to feel your sorrow
when you look in my eyes
and on my throne of death Octoberʼs flame is burning bright
this decayed sanctuary, where dwell her murdered cries
the rage I am becoming...wonʼt let me die

I'll never die

I'll never die
I'll never die
I'll never die

oh
Track Name: The Ossuary
The Ossuary
Lyrics by Shadow Windhawk

scarring unreal
hiding our pain inside
we all turn to dirt again

body decayed
with blood we are bathed
and the
sillouttes dance in our eyes
can we hold on when we die?

as we rot atop these stones
all that remains are broken bones
searched for your hand in vain
before I left my heart in the grave

death is a new home
forgotten and alone
with our
ashen skulls laid side by side
in the silence of the night

buried in stained clothes
awaken from the snow
canʼt you
canʼt you tell that we have died?
drink the poison of these lies

as we rot atop these stones
all that remains are broken bones
searched for your hand in vain
before I gave my heart to the grave
