Killer Album: Dead Man's Bones

The first album released by Dead Man's Bones is self-titled and features The Silverlake Conservatory of Music Children's Choir in each of it's 12 tracks. If that alone doesn't convince you that this band is truly unique then maybe the recurring theme of zombies, ghosts, graveyards, & werewolves (both aurally & visually) will spark your interest. The story is that band members, Ryan Gosling & Zach Shields, crossed paths by default & began spending time together initially out of obligation more than anything else. This time together brought about the realization that both shared a fascination for death & the supernatural. The album itself, released in October of 2009, was the unexpected product of what started out as an idea for a theatrical love story centered around monsters and ghosts. Inspirations for the record were drawn from talented artists such as The Shangri-Las, The Cure, & The Misfits. This is quickly becoming one of my current obsessions.  -Ash_Lethal
