Die, Die My Doomer (A Misfits Covers Charity Compilation)

Just in time for Halloween, Perpetual Doom will release this week a stellar Misfits cover album for charity with tracks by more than thirty different artists.

Available tomorrow on Bandcamp (preorders are live right now), Die, Die My Doomer finds a vast range of independent groups and artists like Modern Folk, Riggings and Gold Dust reinterpreting classic cuts by the New Jersey pioneers of horror punk in a myriad of different styles.

Most importantly, though, every dollar spent on this tribute will be donated to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence (NCADV), a 501 nonprofit that works to be the voice of victims and survivors of domestic violence.

There are so many incredible performances on this album, from Cinnamon Boys’ Neil Young-like acoustic transformation of “Nike-a-go-go” to Radiation Invasion’s molten juggernaut assault on “Halloween” (or Joe Kille’s devilishly industrial fiddle translation of the same song). It’s very hard to pick just a few highlights.

Yet, it’s the tracks that reveal the Misfits’ rockabilly roots that might jump out the most, such as Jason Herring’s take on “London Dungeon” or James “Jimmyjack” Toth’s version of “American Nightmare.” Give this one a listen below and if Toth’s swinging Sun Records vibe doesn’t move you, then you just might be an astro zombie yourself.
