I think Michale Graves is a good singer. In no way one of the best I've ever heard, but he brought something different to The Misfits, whilst fitting their style. I mean, he sounded nothing like Danzig IMO and it was '99 after all! Plus, he wrote "Dig Up Her Bones" when he was 16, so props to the dude:

Wow that singer is terrible, the music is good, but that guy sucks.
Unfortunatly I didn't get into the Misfits until recently. I know I missed out on a iconic band growing up, rather regret that. But I have listened to a lot of there stuff, mainly just the albums with Danzig on them. Never cared for any of the newer singers. They all tried to sound like Danzig but they do a terrible job at it, should just do there own style of singing.
This guy does a much better Danzig impression

That dude is pretty good.  Nowhere near as good as Danzig, but if you are able to find a copy of the '96 (I believe) album American Psycho by The Misfits (Hot Topic usually carries it), and listen, there's a bunch of decent songs on it.

Love the Misfits! I really think they're fantastic and I doubt I go through 3 days without listening to them. I do prefer the early Misfits with Danzig as lead singer but I've grown quite fond of Michael Graves stuff too...it does have a good fast energy about it. Plus almost all they ever sing about is B-movies!!!

Where as Glenn Danzig sounded like a Satanic Punk version of Jim Morrison, Micheal Graves had sort of an evil, creepy broadway voice, which was cool and went great with the music, both cats had real good range. I saw Gotham Road (Micheal Graves band) live in a club which used to be a strip-club, my friends band opened for them. He sounds just as great as he does on his recordings, had alot of energy and didn't tire out, it was a great show.

 Thumbup love everything up till Famous Monsters. Balzac is the best Horror Punk Band now and are actually on Misfits Records, and Gan-Shin in Germany.

Karma for the Human Blood quote.  Great song.  I like Balzac too, but I don't think they are the best horror-punk band.  I used to think they were the best one besides the Misfits, but ever since they started releasing stuff on Misfits Records, it seems like every CD they put out sounds alike to the point where you really only need to own one of them.  I like their earlier releases from Japan much better.

I collect their stuff. They are actually putting out a new mini-album tomorrow, and it is waaay different than any of their other stuff, Barring Space Vampire in Silence Noise, as it is their new "Digital-Horrorpunk" sound. Should be good, if you like Mad Capsule Markets. It is being completely produced by one of their members.

The Misfits (or as some now call them, the Jerry Only 'N' Friends Band) will be releasing a new album in October... cool cover art, as always. I just hope it's better than that godawful "Project: 1950" disc of doo-wop songs they released last time out...

(source: Blabbermouth.net)


MISFITS To Release 'The Devil's Rain' In October - Aug. 13, 2011

Seminal horror-punk band the MISFITS will release its new album, "The Devil's Rain", in October.

The track listing for the CD is as follows:

01. The Devil's Rain
02. Vivid Red
03. Land Of The Dead (album version)
04. The Black Hole
05. Twilight of the Dead (album version)
06. Curse of the Mummy's Hand
07. Cold In Hell
08. Unexplained
09. Dark Shadows
10. Father
11. Jack The Ripper
12. Monkey's Paw
13. Where Do They Go?
14. Sleepwalking
15. Ghost Of Frankenstein
16. Death Ray

In 1977, at the dawn of the punk movement the MISFITS set out to make an impression, and created a legacy that has truly withstood the test of time. Immortalizing black and white B horror films in their music, the MISFITS developed a ghoulish and totally unique persona of their own that s consistently evolved over the years, while remaining true to its roots. The band s iconic "Fiend Skull" logo has become a staple in pop culture and an instantly recognizable symbol worldwide. Bands across the spectrum of rock have covered their material, including METALLICA, GUNS N' ROSES, MY CHEMICAL ROMANCE and countless others.

Boasting a massive catalog of music old and new, a new lineup (consistently helmed by founding member Jerry Only), and an influence felt around the world, the MISFITS return with their long-awaited, first full-length release of all-new, original material in nearly a decade!

Rooted in the horror and sci-fi themes their audience craves, "The Devil's Rain" showcases 16 fiendish, soon-to-be MISFITS classics including "Twilight Of The Dead", "Dark Shadows", "Curse of the Mummy's Hand" and the title track itself. Produced by Ed Stasium (whose credits include the RAMONES' "Road To Ruin" and "Too Tough to Die", as well as the MISFITS 1999 release "Famous Monsters"), the album showcases a jaw-dropping, two-panel front/back cover painting featuring the rebirth of the band's iconic Fiend mascot in an epic setting rendered by Arthur Suydam (known for his immensely popular work on the Marvel Zombies series, among others). The packaging, designed to emulate a CD sized gatefold LP, also features some incredible new MISFITS portraits shot by the legendary Mick Rock. Rock's imagery (which includes David Bowie, Iggy Pop, QUEEN, Debbie Harry, and the RAMONES, to name a few), has become part of the very fabric of rock and roll. Having also served as an on-set photographer for cult-movie classic "The Rocky Horror Picture Show", Rock lends a perfectly suited eye to view the band s surrealistic and highly theatrical persona.

"The Devil's Rain" is not just a continuation of a historic legacy, it's a total reboot ushering in a new era of terror. In a sense, it's the debut album from the legendary MISFITS of this decade.

My opinions on The Misfits have changed over the years. I have an affinity for them now. Can't wait for the new cd.

Can't wait. As long as the sound is similar, it'll make a great soundtrack for me to draw to (that I haven't listened to over and over a thousand times already).

I was listening to demos from this new record the other day. I don't know how far off it is from 100% completion, but what I heard sounded like someone s**tting in a bucket. Fingers crossed I'm wrong....

Anybody ever heard the "Fiend Club Lounge" CD? It's a Lounge Music tribute to the Misfits performed by a swing/jazz group called the Nutley Brass. Most definitely the weirdest CD in my collection.
