ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
TALES FROM THE DEAD WEST was Ghoultown's first full-length release.

"Ghoultown is the latest (and probably most extreme) band to offer a perverse take on rock music's twisted roots."
- Dallas Morning News

"Texabilly debauchery at its darkest, drunkest, and most decadent."
- Razorcake

"...an all-out battle cry for lost souls and visionaries alike!"
- Rue Morgue

"These guys stand alone with an innovative genre, ground that\'s not been covered in a long while by a band that has the skill to pull it off."
- Deathrock.com
___

The devilishly eclectic Ghoultown have thrilled, marauded and rocked their way across the nation for over a decade. Born in Texas and fronted by the infamous Count Lyle, Ghoultown is home to the most talented band of deviants this side of hell. Boasting collaborations with Chris Telkes (Nocturne) and Sara Lee Lucas (Marilyn Manson), their tracks are described by Synergy Magazine as "the ultimate embodiment of tequila drinking hillbilly rock". The band's sixth studio effort, LIFE AFTER SUNDOWN, proves to be their most ambitious material to date. The album is a unique mix of horror rock, punk-twang and spaghetti western flair. Think of it this way--if Rob Zombie and Johnny Cash were tossed into a meat packer, Ghoultown is what would come out the other side.

Ghoultown’s musical alchemy has attracted a wide range of dedicated fans and caught the attention of the entertainment industry. Their singles have amassed over 30,000 downloads, earning the band national radio play, global licensing deals and even a nod in the award-winning Vampire Masquerade: Bloodlines video game. Featured on over a dozen independent and studio film soundtracks, Ghoultown even possessed the director of American Nightmare to rearrange the script and include a band performance after witnessing them play live. Always on the move, they are also fixture at major entertainment conventions including Spooky Empire, Dragon*Con and Texas Frightmare Weekend.

Ghoultown's raucous, decadent and high-octane live performances have garnered a loyal nationwide fanbase opening for the likes of Hank III, The Misfits, and Gorgeous Frankenstein. After conquering the Texas live circuit, the band took their act on the road. From New York's infamous CBGBs to Bar Sinister in Los Angeles, no saloon or concert hall is safe. Their influence and popularity has bleed into Europe, with a European tour in the works for early 2010.

In addition to the success of LIFE AFTER SUNDOWN and SKELETON COWBOYS - their latest single on Zoviet Records - Ghoultown was recently invited to write and perform a new theme song for iconic horror maven, Elvira. The star-studded tribute was recently released as the MISTRESS OF THE DARK ultra-single, complete with a DVD featuring the music video by director Gris Grimly and an audio CD of new songs including “Mistress of the Dark” and remixes. Hailed as pioneers of hellbilly rock, Ghoultown continues to make hearts race and skin crawl on their pursuit to turn the music world upside down--one soul at a time.

1st Album with Killer Songs on it!!
I am giving away 5 Stars for the debut Album of GHOULTOWN here! I can't get enough of this CD - "Killer in Texas" is a classic and "Death of Jonah Hex" may be one of the best songs ever released! The original mixture of cowboy western style combined with Dark Horror Punk/Psycho is making Ghoultown one of the best bands in my collection! I will invite the count to a strip club if he will ever play here in Germany...! (I hope so) I must also say big thanx to CD Baby! They are a very good company: they send the CD'S very fast and in good condition. They DO care about their customers and make CD's affordable. Cheers to GHOULTOWN for the music and to CD Baby for their perfect Service! signed: :: Steve Del Diabolo :: (from Cologne / Germany)

another gem
i never thought that fire could strike the same way again untill after giving a listen to the great cd that I had from these fellows, namely one "Live in texas", that they would surprise and amaze me with this very fine gem here.
the playing here is wonderful, the musicians compliment each other, and the professionalism shines throughout more than if there were lights where they were playing.
IN fact, this is as good here as it is on LIve from texas.
FEllas, hope you get to play Wv, wouldnt mind to see you here .
Thanks!

eerie and essential
Ghoultown's first full-length album is a great blend of classic cowboy songs and classic horror. Every time I listen to this album I feel like I have been transported back in time to a 1950s double feature that has become reality, Twilight Zone style. The classic Killer In Texas is a standout, but I am just as fond of Ghost Riders In The Sky, Gunslinger, Death Of Jonah Hex, and La Noche Diablo. If you can imagine a bunch of zombies wreaking havoc in a classic cowboy movie, riding the rails dressed in black, your mind is ready to experience this album. Be afraid, but check it out anyway--you won't regret it!
