06 May 2024 - We Are Horror Records welcomes das GHOUL to the family!

Uninitiated? Prepare yourselves for a spine-chilling blend of punk’n’roll and deathpop as das GHOUL announces its partnership with We Are Horror Records. Emerging from the eerie shadows of Witney, Oxfordshire (UK), das GHOUL was birthed in 2016 under moonlit skies that held more secrets than met the eye. Armed with an 8-track recorder and fueled by a penchant for experimentation, Murry Burnett extended an invitation to Craig The Plague, weaving together dark musical tales that transcended mere curiosity.

What began as an ordinary collaboration swiftly metamorphosed into something hauntingly extraordinary. Craig’s sinister vocals and guitar prowess intertwined seamlessly with Murry’s relentless drumming. The ensemble was further enriched by the addition of Laurence Llewelyn Beale on bass and Octavia Von Wakeman on keyboards, solidifying their macabre sound. Clad in haunting masks since their very first gig they have captivated audiences across the UK, offering a unique blend of horror-themed anthems.

“Noise-Das-Noire,” their debut album released in 2019, stood as a testament to their unwavering commitment to the dark arts of music. Drawing inspiration from legendary acts such as The Damned, Screaming Lord Sutch, and the twisted humour of The League Of Gentlemen, das GHOUL’s compositions evoke moonlit graveyards, haunted castles, and the faint whispers of the supernatural — all laced with classic British wit.

Now, as they embark on this new chapter with We Are Horror Records, das GHOUL vows to shatter the boundaries of horror-infused punk. Their sights are firmly set on captivating audiences worldwide, promising a wave of terror that will simultaneously thrill and chill to the bone.

Here is what both had to say on this new working collaboration:

das GHOUL: "We’re excited to carve our name onto the roster and spread, plague-like, our morbid humour melodies into some more creepy ear holes."

We Are Horror Records: "My search for talented artists to work with is pretty much never-ending. More and more lately I have been looking closer to home for bands to work with. I enjoy being quite 'hands-on' and working with bands from the UK is only going to help that! das GHOUL have been on my radar for a couple of years, and now I'm elated to say we have decided to put our horror heads together! This is certainly going to be fun... and as the band themselves say; "Marvellous behaviour!"

Brace yourselves — the brand-new 6-track E.P., “More Spectral Manoeuvres in the Dark,” is poised to descend upon the unsuspecting public on June 7th.
