Murderdolls: Wednesday 13

Wednesday 13

The Murderdolls have a new album coming out at the end of August, and the new song and video have just the radio waves and tubes on the internets. The band’s brand of horrorcore and sleazy rock is the antidote to the stale faux grunge and Maiden wanna be’s gumming up playlists. I took [...]
