Biography

In late 1998, a band was formed that would come to be recognized as one of the bloodiest acts in the underworld of punk rock. Mister Monster was started by singer-guitarist J~Sin Trioxin. The band formed, wrote, recorded, released, and played its first show within a matter of 6 weeks of forming as a band. Audiences at the 1998 Halloween show were blown away by Mister Monster’s performance, and the band’s first release, “Songs From the Crypt,” sold out its first pressing in a matter of days. Four pressings later, the band was regularly playing New Jersey and New York City, in front of packed houses. During the following year and a half, the band made small tours of the tri-State area and changes to its lineup.

In 1999 -2000, J~Sin recorded tracks for a 5-song demo and recruited various friends to back him up at many NYC/NJ shows as Mister Monster and the Back Alley Butchers. In late 2001, now a full band, MM independently financed and released the full-length disc “Over Your Dead Body,” which featured already cult-classics entitled “This Night I Call (Bad Luck),” “Prom Night,” “Scars 19,” and “Resident Evil.” The video for “Bad Luck,” along with the video for “Gore Whore,” can be found as bonus materials on the DVD for the horror film “Creepy Tales: Girls’ Night Out” (Cinema Sky), on which the band’s songs appear on the soundtrack along with those of The Misfits. MM has also appeared on compilations such as “Grave Rockers” and “This Is Horrorpunk” along side the Nekromantix, The Crypt Keeper 5, The Independents, Blitzkid, The Spook, and Rock City Morgue.
