Definitely one of the newest, and quite possibly the freshest, most unique bands that Calgary Alberta has seen in quite some time..."A Cry of Hounds" is ready to infect your ears, your mind, your heart.
This band has successfully captured the sounds of some great 60's garage punk with these songs. Based on 16 b-grade horror flicks with such titles as "Beast of Yucca Flats", "Teenage Zombies" and "Creature From the Haunted Sea", this music will bring a smile to your face and get your whole body grooving to the music! All 16 tunes are now captured on one glorious garage punk rave-up album called GARAGE MONSTERS.
fresh off their first successful gig in Calgary...the band is now ready to spread the B-grade gospel of garage punk...look out! Here we come!
any b-grade horror movie gets an A+ from us. So do the wonderfully undead sounds of the 60s garage bands: The Sonics, the Standells, The Seeds, Thirteenth Floor Elevators, Count Five, Blues Magoos, the Amboy Dukes...even more recent inspirations like Alice Cooper, the Cramps, the B-52s, and some wonderfully retro bands like Jet and the Hives. A-OOOOOOHH!
60s keys, drums with skulls on 'em...loud squawky guitars and thundering basses. We got it all, Monster style.
