Introducing The Dahmers: Horror rock to sink your teeth into

The Dahmers are horror rock crusaders and they’re making a killing

Retro rock is a massive deal at this point in the 21st century, but it’s hard to ignore the reality that most nostalgic rock bands are a bit too polite and polished to appeal to the average metalhead. Swedish miscreants The Dahmers are a different matter entirely, thanks to their inspired combination of furious, singalong garage rock and lyrics that explore the dark, blood-soaked horrors that lurk in the deep recesses of our minds. On new, second album In The Dead Of Night, these residents of Kristianstad, Sweden, present a rowdy, black-hearted and heroically goofy alternative to the backward-looking status quo. Plus, of course, they are cheerfully paying tribute to one of history’s most terrifying serial killers along the way.
