It was Halloween of 2002 when the famous Misfits Coverband GHOULS decided to do the unspeakable. At their sold-out show in the ancient city of Cologne, they played a song that was not written by the Misfits. And the audience loved it, even though it meant certain death for them. Didn’t they know that hearing the sounds of Roderick Usher (vocals), Sargeant von Rock (guitars, backing vocals), Andy Only (bass) and Dr. Caligari (drums) seals the listeners fate and lets him die at an unpredictable time in the future?
The monster, which was to become known as THE OTHER reared its ugly head for the first time at that crucial and dark period for humanity.
But the members of the band were still uncertain. Would they be strong enough to conquer the planet on their own, with their own weapons? The fiends (Horrorpunk music fans) all over Germany said that they did! And so the downward spiral towards the total extinction of humanity took its course.
THE OTHER, a more than fitting name for this alien and strange quartet, plays Horrorpunk, a genre that was more or less invented by the MISFITS. The fast Punk-Rock comes equipped with melodic vocals and hymn-like choruses. But one should never forget the lyrical side. Total Horror, B-Movies, Science-Fiction, Blood and Gore.
