Horror Show


Horror Show were a five-piece hardcore band from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania that formed in 2000 and broke up in 2005. They mostly released music through Deathwish. These guys played a dark and intensive form of hardcore, focusing on more personal topics in their lyrics. Their brand of punk is often compared to that of American Nightmare, which is funny since vocalist Domenic Palermo would later play in XO Skeletons, along with Wesley Eisold (American Nightmare's vocalist). Horror Show will also appeal to fans of other Philly hardcore bands, like Ink And Dagger or Knives Out. For the few years they were around, they only released 2 EP's, Our Design and The Holiday. They also recorded a demo in 2002, which would be included on later versions of Our Design. In 2011, Deathwish released a compilation of all Horror Show's music. I highly, highly recommend giving it a listen, this is some fantastic early 2000's hardcore. On a side note, some of you might recognize the name Domenic Palermo, since years after Horror Show ended, he would form the shoegaze band Nothing, who have been getting a ton of attention lately. Enjoy.
