Spencer Charnas of Ice Nine Kills gives us an inside look at their latest release Welcome To Horrorwood: The Silver Scream 2.  The pandemic forced the road dogs in Ice Nine Kills to stay home.  Spencer explains how that extra time gave them a less stressful situation to create what he feels is their best release.

The first single to be unleashed from the album is “Hip To Be Scared”, featuring  Jacoby Shaddix  of  Papa Roach. The accompanying music video was premiered at the fan event last night and pays homage to the landmark movie based on the Bret Easton Ellis novel ‘American Psycho’ centered around psychotic investment banker, Patrick Bateman. “Hip To Be Scared” mixes the soaring choruses, clever lyricism, heavy riffs and Broadway-like theatrics that are as much ‘Hamilton’ as they are horror. The song also tips its hat to an ‘80s pop classic beloved by the murderous protagonist.

A sequel of franchise  proportions to the No. 1  Billboard  Hard  Rock  Album  ‘The Silver  Scream’,  ‘The  Silver  Scream  2: Welcome to Horrorwood’  doubles down in pursuit of the anthemic band’s cinematic muse. Decadent,  devious, and fiercely insane, with sardonic  wit to spare, Ice Nine Kills celebrate pop culture’s  darkest edges, mining a cinephile library’s worth of b-movie schlock and iconic horror on ‘Welcome  to  Horrorwood:The  Silver  Scream  2’  and it’s prequel, ‘The Silver Scream’. The creative marriage made in hell of music and fiction  began in earnest with the Boston-based band’s Top  5  Hard Rock album, ‘Every  Trick  in  the  Book’, which brought the previous  three  records’  themes to new levels with literary-immersed tracks.
