“Following the tradition of The Cramps, (Ex-Boogeymen) utilize plenty of reverb, front man bravado, and catchy two- to three-minute songs.” — Lead Us Down
“(Waylon Thornton’s) fascination with darkness and the macabre is a sentiment that I completely identify with, and his lo-fi garage rock just has this feeling that is more befitting of a romp in the graveyard instead of some sweaty rock venue.” — Cactus Mouth
ONLY DARKNESS HOLDS THE POWER was recorded and produced by Waylon Thornton at his home in Lake Butler, Florida, during the summer of 2012. Meg Thornton took the front cover photograph, which pictures her and Waylon’s handsome son, Dex.
