13 Halloweens

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"Please allow me to introduce these horror punk heartthrobs from the dusty graveyards of Arizona. This is a band of three brothers (actual brothers, actual last name CALABRESE) with a wicked MISFITS-meets-RAMONES-meets-DAMNED sound that is tight, hard and fiercely melodic. Songs like "Resurrection," "Eyes Down," "Shrunken Head Kids" and "Crizila" are liberally spiced with tasty hooks you can sink your fangs into along with all the requisite, hoa-whoa-oooh, chorus vocals that your black leather heart could ever desire. More often than not I've heard this "horror" genre done really poorly, but this can serve as the benchmark of how to get it right. This is as good as it gets, you can file this next to WALK AMONG US". - JEFF DAHL

Formed in 2003 the brothers CALABRESE have come a long way in four short years. "We are a very lucky band, our fans our amazing and I think selling our Souls is paying off because people just want to help the band progress." -Jimmy Calabrese. Fueled by the cult success of "13 HALLOWEENS", CALABRESE has recorded a follow up CD "THE TRAVELING VAMPIRE SHOW". The January 2007 release promises to deliver the horror with new 12 songs of ghoulish delight. "THE TRAVELING VAMPIRE SHOW" shows the development that CALABRESE has achieved. Only one listen will demonstrate the tighter performances, the more devolved songwriting and the more powerful mind controlling frequencies. Even though CALABRESE
has been compared to the MISFITS, RAMONES and early AFI, "THE TRAVELING VAMPIRE SHOW" is distinctly CALABRESE. "Brothers Bobby, Jimmy and Davey have not only been gifted with a last name that doubles as a great band name...which, much like 13 HALLOWEENS, is destined for cult status." -
Gothic Beauty Magazine.

CALABRESE appeals to those who feel confused by the current state of popular music. With distribution in the U.S., Japan and to the world through the Internet, CALABRESE are quickly converting an international audience. With consistent touring and song writing, CALABRESE are building a vortex of energy forcing their way into the nightmares of helpless fans! "I think CALABRESE is one of the top Horror Rock bands I have heard." - BLASKO, bassist for ROB ZOMBIE and OZZY OSBOURNE.

(Calabrese)is a tight, lethal punk band with a knack for great glammy choruses
Calabrese is a horror-punk band from Phoenix, AZ, featuring three brothers - of the blood variety, obviously. So, they’re kinda like Van Halen, only with more murder and mayhem. Oh, and better haircuts. Musically, they follow the same thorny, twisted path as their whoa-oh-ing forebears, mixing the Munsters theme and old Halloween sound effect records with the Sex Pistols and Eddie Cochran, and then watching with bloody rictus grins as all the flowers around them wilt and die. Crazy girls love ‘em. So do the Fango kids. You, you might need a little convincing – they do have a song called “Backseat of My Hearse”, after all – but beyond the goofy-ghouly stuff, there’s a tight, lethal punk band with a knack for great glammy choruses with foot-stomps and hand-claps and meaty Dracula-driving biker-fuzz riffs that’d make Davie Allen pop right out of his coffin to say “Outtasight!”, if he was dead. Or Undead. Dig the expansive freak n’ roll of “Death of Me”, the neo-hardcore rager “One of Us” or the bleached cowskull epic “Every Day is a Funeral” for three sterling examples of their bitchin’ creep rock, and be sure to stick around for the hidden bit at the end, where they hypnotize you in sending them 13 dollars. I get the feeling I may have heard some of these songs in a prior incarnation, like an EP or something, but since I pretty much live the same nightmare everyday, it’s hard to say for sure. All I really know is that, although I have never fucked Linnea Quigley in a graveyard while the Wolfbane bloomed, I have often thought about it, and Calabrese would just be, like, wicked for such an event.
Calabrese, if you cats wanna work that out, I’ll be in the video for free.

these guys are definitely original in what they do. and they LOVE what they do.
This CD kicks off perfectly with a creepy old sample sounding intro. ANY band that uses samples from old horror movies have me at AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!! but the intro isn't the coolest part of this..these guys are for real three brothers.. when you get three brothers who actually get along and don't spend their time beating the shit out of each other and do something constructive such as turn their love of horror movies and punk rock into something as cool as this.. you gotta love it. first song ZOMBIE I, the guitar is really smooth and you get a taste of the kick ass vocals you are in store for on the rest of the album. let go with that awesome CROON! second song... RESURRECTION one of my fives starts off with a great bass line and how can you go wrong using BACK IN BLACK as the first words to any song.. and yes yes yes yes I can hardly stand it.. they're using clips from GHOST OF FRANKENSTEIN... the creature has a mind of a murderer.. IT MUST BE DESTROYED.. I love this band!! I love the almost keyboard sound of the vox.. actually there might be some keyboards in there not sure but it sounds amazing... third song.. DEATH OF ME has a pretty smooth VINCENT PRICE style intro.. love this stuff. Not sure but reminds me of old WHITE ZOMBIE but without all the YEAH's and the endless assault of words that don't make sense.... ONE OF US fast and heavy.. a kick to the teeth, reminds me of ELECTRIC FRANKENSTEIN at times.. MIDNIGHT SPOOKSHOW gotta love that scream at the beginning.. kinda makes me think of DR PHIBES heading off a punk band, a lot of us have heard this one before. number SIX titled BACKSEAT OF MY HEARSE.. does a hearse even have a backseat.. who cares.. clever ass idea! EYES DOWN man I love all this retro horror stuff.. the vox in this are some of the best on the whole album.. you guys may hate me for this but reminds me of ALKALINE TRIO my fave band of all time. SHRUNKEN HEAD KIDS has a good swing to it.. groovy as hell. EVENING brings back the ELECTRIC FRANKENSTEIN balls to the wall feel again. finally hell yes.. my favorite track on this whole damn cd.. BLOOD IN MY EYES.. I love this song it's probably the best CARRIE inspired song I've ever heard.. I'm speechless.. how do you describe something as awesome as this.... you don't you just love it. again with a killer bassline we have EVERY DAY'S A FUNERAL not to mention we get more and more awesome old clips. CRIZILLA I think is the only song that the lyrics weren't written by CALABRESE. I wonder if that's why it's one of my least fave tracks. who cares it still rocks. and the final track. PHANTASMAGORIA, amazing guitars amazing vox, amazing lyrics.. this band never ceases to amaze me. OK now that I've staggered through each track what's my final thoughts. HORROR ROCK is littered with MISFITS wannabes.. It's nice to see someone who doesn't fit into that category.. these guys are definitely original in what they do. and they LOVE what they do. that makes it even better. CALABRESE IS UNSTOPPABLE oh yeah don't forget to listen for the secret track!

these 13 horror-rock songs (hence the title), in the vein of the Misfits and the
Zombies, mummies and vampires populate local trio Calabrese's first full-length, 13 Halloweens, the follow-up to the three brothers' much-hyped EP Midnight Spookshow. Some Spookshow tracks are revisited here, but these 13 horror-rock songs (hence the title), in the vein of the Misfits and the Ramones, show a fleshed-out, slickly produced, more grown-up (but definitely not more mature)Calabrese. When Bobby, Jim and Dave chug through tracks like "Death of Me," "Backseat of My Hearse," and "Every Day's a Funeral," it's impossible not to fall under their thrall. Horror rock's not a very populated genre these days, so the Valley's lucky to have Calabrese playing around town in gothabilly gear and making vampy little girls swoon, but even luckier to have the solid collection on 13 Halloweens to play at will.

Freaking Awesome!
I love Calabrese! I had wanted this CD for a long time, but for one reason or another put off buying it. I am just so glad that I woke from my fog, and bought it. I LOVE every single track on this album, and You will too. The Calabrese brothers are so awesome. My favorite tracks are "the Backseat of my Hearse, Death of Me, and Phantasmagoria".....buy this CD if You love horror rock!

Kelly

Finally, a band that breaks the cookie cutter image!
I loved this CD so much it's worn out...literally. It's so refreshing to hear a group who puts the time and energy into creating an image and sound for themselves and don't ride on the coat tails of every other artist that's popular at the time. I pre-ordered their new CD months ago! This music crosses all generations. My teenage daughters love it just as much as I do at the age of--uh-hem--41. You will not be disappointed!

Joe

Awesome Horror Rock!
This is just an awesome horror rock album! I heard just 1 song (Midnight Spookshow) and liked it so much I had to buy the whole album. Not 1 track on the entire album disappointed me. My favorite songs are probably Zombie I and Eye Down. This has got to be the best horror band (that I know of) out there today!

scott

Saraya

The Hunry Brain

Horror Punk's Finest Zombies~!!!
After hearing the band on one cd a friend had, I ordered Calbrese 13 Halloweens and All Hell broke loose! These guys are the coolest!
If you dont get this CD, you'll be lost!

Zee

Awesome horror punk cd! A must have!!!!!!
This is one of the most amazing cds that I own and one that I can definitely be proud of. It has amazing songs with really catchy lyrics and amazing guitar playing. I must say, they might even be better than the Misfits.
