THE HANGMEN – ‘Necronomicon’ Single Review

THE HANGMEN – Necronomicon

the-hangmenPunk-rockabilly trio The Hangmen will release their long-awaited new studio material in March on vinyl and download. The cult UK psychobilly band’s three-track EP, ‘Necronomicon‘ opens with the eponymous song. It’s a romp that is held together with a super guitar lick that’ll have you shuffling your feet and nodding your head.

In homage to the movie ‘Evil Dead’, the track is wild, scary and expands on the rock and roll approach with some diversions into an almost jazzy area.  The EP will be available on limited edition 10″ vinyl and the second track, ‘Collarbomb’ turns up the intensity and insanity!’ The track manages to achieve a rawness and polish at the same time with a punch the air chorus to shout along too!

The Great Brain Robbery neatly concludes the EP with a straight up rockabilly/psychobilly/punk rock approach that shows that the boys still have what it takes to rock a room.
