31 Days of Halloween: BUTCHER BABIES - "They're Coming to Take Me Away, Ha-Haaa!"

Back in 1966, Napoleon XIV released a sonic oddity called "They're Coming to Take Me Away, Ha-Haaa!" - a song that has often emerged during the Halloween season as a bizarre addition to the spooky, seasonal playlist. While it's popularity has dwindled over the years, the BUTCHER BABIES have brought it back for 2014, metalizing it for their recent covers EP, UNCOVERED (released via Century Media). For 31 Days of Halloween this year, I'm adding it to the playlist, fueled by the release of their new, slasher-eque music video. See it below, but don't show the kids!

31 Days of Halloween: DEMON HUNTER - "Heart of a Graveyard"

When I bestowed a perfect 5/5 rating upon DEMON HUNTER's phenomenal new record, EXTREMIST back in March, I pegged the album's closer as a potential new addition to my seasonal playlist for Fall - deeming "Heart of a Graveyard" a "poppy, yet spooky surprise." For Day 15 of 31 Days of Halloween, I'm making good on that, highlighting a song that probably wasn't written with the sinister season in mind, but one that just fits so well. Stream "Heart of a Graveyard" below, and be sure to grab EXTREMIST(Amazon | iTunes) - out now on Solid State Records.

Covered: MIDNITE STRING QUARTET releases tributes to SLIPKNOT, DEFTONES, SLAYER, MEGADETH, PANTERA and more...

For the past few years, the crew over at Roma Music Group has been releasing lullaby albums based on the biggest names in music through their Twinkle Twinkle Little Rock Star line - a collection that I've covered extensively here on THE ROCK FATHER. What had been flying under my radar until recently is a line of tributes they've been releasing by the MIDNITE STRING QUARTET. Now, string tributes are nothing new, but the library that Roma has assembled here is impressive. Already, they have releases based around DEFTONES, METALLICA, PANTERA, SLIPKNOT, ASKING ALEXANDRIA, FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH and more - with albums based on the works of ADELE, PARAMORE, FALL OUT BOY, PANIC AT THE DISCO, RADIOHEAD and more due out within the next few weeks. Take a look at the rundown of what's out, all available on iTunes and Amazon.
