Ghoul, Child Bite, Ringworm, Etc. Cover Samhain For “We All Want Our Time In Hell” Tribute Album

Corpse Flower Records will be releasing a Samhain tribute album, titled “We All Want Our Time In Hell,” on May 4. The effort, which was curated by Child Bite’s Shawn Knight and mastered by James Plotkin (Old, Scorn, Khanate, Khlyst), will feature Child Bite, Ghoul, Midnight, Acid Witch, Brain Tentacles, Joel Grind, Ringworm, etc. covering Samhain tracks. The vinyl only release will be limited to 300 copies. Pre-orders are up HERE, and a teaser can be found below:

Knight commented:

“I’ve been a huge fan of Glenn Danzig’s music ever since I was a 13-year-old kid, just a couple years after Samhain had dissolved,” relays Knight. “MTV introduced me to Danzig, and a friend’s older brother – along with Metallica’s Garage Days Re-Revisited EP – got me into the Misfits. Discovering Samhain took a bit more digging, and always felt that much more mysterious because of it. All of the classic Danzigian elements are present; murky atmosphere, dark / taboo lyrics, catchy hooks and melodies, gritty DIY art and recordings, and of course that Evil Elvis voice. I’ve always felt that this less celebrated period of Danzig’s output deserved more love, and I hope that our small tribute will introduce a few more kids to the music of Samhain.”

Track Listing:

01. “Night Chill” – Joel Grind
02. “Mother Of Mercy” – Midnight
03. “In My Grip” – Nil Eye
04. “Black Dream” – Ringworm
05. “Macabre” – Ghoul
06. “Halloween II” – Acid Witch
07. “The Howl” – Multicult
08. “The Shift” – Like Rats
09. “Kiss Of Steel” – Shed The Skin
10. “I Am Misery” – Immortal Bird
11. “Unbridled” – Child Bite
12. “Human Pony Girl” – Brain Tentacles
12. “Archangel” – Ritual Howls
