WEDNESDAY 13 Album
WEDNESDAY 13 News
Heavily influenced by the real-life night terror occurrences of Wednesday himself, historical serial killers, and a slew of 80’s horror films, the ideas behind 'Necrophaze' are bizarrely familiar, frightening, and a hell of a lot of fun. Being a collector of both media and toys, WEDNESDAY 13 was inspired by a craving for variety to create dual album artwork for this release (seen below). The covers showcase either end of the horror spectrum with a 'Creepshow' comic book vibe for the LP artwork and the eeriness of something akin to John Carpenter’s 'The Fog' adorning the CD.
“To say we are excited about this release would be an understatement,” Wednesday adds.“We have re-built and Frankensteined an all-new WEDNESDAY 13. This is the next chapter, the next experience, the next phase into our world...Enter the NECROPHAZE. This is the most elaborate, horror-themed album I’ve ever released under the name Wednesday 13. Channeling the atmosphere of early 80s horror films, tv shows, cartoons and movie soundtracks the Necrophaze was complete. To add a little more Blood to the party, we had the complete honor of having the Godfather of shock rock, the legendary Alice Cooper. Alice is a guest doing the introduction to the album and the title track Necrophaze.
We wanted to give the listener the ultimate listening experience as if our band was the soundtrack to a horror film. The artwork for the CD and vinyl is a visual guide to the songs, and the live show will be the living breathing horror movie version. There will be a WEDNESDAY 13 action figure, music videos, movie soundtrack trailers, commercials and more all on the way with the release of 'Necrophaze'. The artwork and packaging is a tribute to the classic art and packaging from my favorite time of the 1980s. So welcome to the party...but bring your own blood.”
