Ice Nine Kills

The Silver Scream

Fearless Records

October 5, 2018

Album Review By Allyson Kingsley


Boston-based band Ice Nine Kills craftily blend two of my favorite things in life, horror themes with heavy metal and they do it amazingly well. If I may be so bold, I can safely say that most people in this generation adore the horror icons such as Freddy Krueger, Michael Myers, and Leatherface. Frontman Spencer Charnas explains it perfectly: “Heavy music and horror are both escapes from our mundane struggles,” Charnas points out. “Horror gets a bad rap with some people who think it's sick and depraved. But those who love it tend to be the people who get it, who realize you aren't supposed to see Friday the 13th and then go kill a bunch of people at a summer camp. Aggressive music and horror movies are outlets for your demons not a blueprint for your actions. It's an escape from reality. You could be having the worst day in the world, with your job or your significant other, and you can go and put on a great metal record or horror movie and forget about all of your problems.”


It could not have been stated better. Their fifth album The Silver Scream is loaded with a shit ton of horror icon references. From Freddy Krueger in “The American Nightmare” to Jason Voorhees in “Thank God it's Friday.” Aside from the beloved horror references, their musicianship is tight and the instrumentation is heavy. The interjection of horror themed sounds just adds additional flavor to this masterpiece. As a testament to seeing them live, Ice Nine Kills throw their all into their performances.
