Grave Robber Releases Lyric Video for ‘Scary Christmas To You’


Grave Robber‘s official lyric video of ‘Scary Christmas To You’ can be seen below. The track is taken from their latest album “Scary Christmas To You” which has been released Dec. 13th. 2019 via Rottweiler Records.

For those unfamiliar with the band, Grave Robber is a horror-punk band in the vein of the Misfits and has been around for more than 10 years, releasing the epic first album Be Afraid in 2008.  The band itself when performing are in full skeleton costume and led by vocalist Wretched, who has that smooth deep voice that provides a dark, instantly recognizable sound on all the albums.  Musicians have come and gone from the band and rumors are that there are multiple versions of several of the characters as the inevitable personnel changes experience by bands have occurred over the years.  Throughout their career, the band has been known for their clever B-movie horror references in their lyrics that are used to deliver a serious message about salvation, while at the same time providing some great choruses to sing along.  All the releases are characterized by top notch performances and production and while some veer more toward the metal spectrums than punk rock, the band always seems to find its way back to the fast, driving punk rock first heard on Be Afraid.

Grave Robber has been on Rottweiler Records now for quite a while and the label has released seven different Christmas compilation albums full of various punk, metal, and other artists covering Christmas songs in their style or submitting new ones and most of the tracks on Scary Christmas to You  have come from those comps.  All of those songs are either fast punk versions of classic hymns like Joy to the World or Angels We Have Heard on High, which manages to  make the Gloria refrain much like the extended Whoahs in other Grave Robber songs.  One can just imagine the crowd singing along with that at a live show filled with bodies flying all over and a huge pile on at the front of the stage.  Other songs previously released have come from popular Christmas music and tv shows, some of which like “Grandma Got Half Eaten by a Zombie” features the Grave Robber twist on things including references to the movie Zombieland.
