1998 – present (19 years)
- Dave Gein (1998 – present)
Gein and the Graverobbers first stepped out of the cemetery and onto the horror surf scene in 1998. Ever since their first release in 2000, Humanoids from the Deep, the four graveyard ghouls have been hell-bent on playing the most terrifying surf songs the mortal world has ever heard! Today, Gein and the Graverobbers have become the premiere instrumental horror surf band. Since the release of Humanoids, this grisly gore-tet has released three full-length CDs: Hang 10 with Gein and the Graverobbers, Songs in the Key of Evil, and their soon to be occult classic, The Passion of the Anti-Christ.
Gein, Kemper and Sloth are the three ashen zombie Graverobbers who could be recruits straight out of the cult classic, “Carnival of Souls.” Myra, the femme fatale of the group (emphasis on “fatal”), draws her deadly inspiration from B-Movie queen, Vampira. The band’s stage is a spectral spectacle, setting the tone of the show decked out with jack o’ lanterns, coffins, tombstones.
The latest offering from Satan’s favorite surf band is entitled The Passion of the Anti-Christ. This new CD carries on in the same vein as Songs in the Key of Evil; however the songs have gotten increasingly more aggressive and intricate. The sound is a mixture of Dick Dale, Iron Maiden, and Slayer. Drenched in reverb and oozing with the atmosphere of an Argento film, these 13 terror tunes delve into a lurid world of zombies, demons, and the occult. The Passion is sure to make the hairs on the back of your neck stand up and the dead rise from their graves!
Gein and the Graverobbers have twice toured and haunted fans in Europe, in 2001 and 2002, and plan a US tour in the fall of 2005. Gein and crew have entertained fans at horror conventions, haunted houses, midnight horror movies, and even a captive audience in a Belgian prison! With accolades ranging from music magazines such as Maximum Rock-n-Roll, to horror publications like Rue Morgue, Gein and the Graverobbers have made their mark on the world of horror rock. So break out your Necronomicon and your Ouija board and find out why Gein and the Graverobbers earned the honor of being Hell’s charnel house band.
