Killed By Deathrock Vol. 1

About this item

RiYL: Christian Death, 45 Grave, The Cramps… In 2007, Sacred Bones Records founder Caleb Braaten started unearthing rare and little-heard post-punk, deathrock and dark punk tracks for an eventual compilation. Seven years later, those tracks are finally being released in vinyl, CD and digital formats as Killed By Deathrock Vol. 1.

Bands from all over the world are represented on the comp, from the relatively well-known Scots in Twisted Nerve to the “completely un-Googleable” Move from Italy, with a vast spectrum of American and European bands in between. What all these songs have in common, apart from their dark, icy atmosphere, is that they’re quintessential pieces of the deathrock story that haven’t been heard by nearly enough people — until now.
