Can't wait for a second album.
Washington Mutual
Rather, it's the production, the lyrics and the atmosphere of the tunes that make it so innovative, catchy and fun to listen to.
Mark Pellegrini
They pay tribute to Gorey, Poe, and in a weird way all Horror Stories, Movies, and Songs at once!

In the world of rock music, innovation and creativity have often been beaten mercilessly into submission and crammed into a nice easy box that is generic enough for fits the tsates of 90% of the audience. Thankfully Creature Feature is something creatively and completely different. This duo from the Los Angeles area wonderfully drags you into the realms of many classic horror movies, and then twists the stories into a dark, mischieveous rock tracks. Not since the days that Danny Elfman led (the Mystic Knights of) Oingo Boingo, has an act tooken such a darkly humorous and rocking auditory excursion.

Creature Feature sings about the circuses that exist in the Twilight Zone, the living dead, monsters, murder and mayhem. As a bonus, children can even learn their ABC's the Edward Gorey way. In an era where a CD is disposable after listening to a couple of tracks, "The Greatest Show Unearthed" is great listening from start to finish.

I purchased this album before it was picked up and released by Sumerian Records. It is absolutely delightful! With its spooky techno-rock sound, the Vincent Price/Edgar Allan Poe/Edward Gorey (among others) inspired atmosphere and macabre tongue-in-cheek humor, this is a favorite for Halloween and beyond the grave. I encourage everybody to buy themselves a copy to enjoy for themselves...especially late at night when the moon is full, the fog is thick and you've had your fill of horror movies. My personal favorite tracks are "Buried Alive", "Such Horrible Things" and "A Gorey Demise".

After hearing mostly the same types of music over and over in the so-called "mainstream," finally there is a breather. Here we have something different and VERY Halloween. Think of every old-school horror movie you've seen, and I guarantee this music will remind you of them. I love this soundtrack and almost every song on it. Everything about it is very fun--from the lyrics and the music itself. Can't wait for a second album.

If you're a fan of horror movies and rock music reminiscent of Danny Elfman's band Oingo Bongo, then Creature Feature's debut album "The Greatest Show Unearthed" is something you won't want to miss.

Their music definitely has a highly processed studio feel, but it's not supposed to sound like raw live-on-stage stuff. Rather, it's the production, the lyrics and the atmosphere of the tunes that make it so innovative, catchy and fun to listen to.

Each track is an homage to either a specific horror film, book or general horror-themed situation. You've got songs covering "Invasion of the Body Snatchers", "Night of the Living Dead", a brilliant piece about being buried alive that's packed with Edgar Allan Poe-isms and even a song inspired by the "Ghastlycrumb Tinies"; a 1963 picture book about children getting killed in alphabetical order. Other songs cover topics such as cannibalism, a weird carnival of terror invading a small town, the anti-Christ reminiscing about the horrible things he's done, a necrophelia love song and even one about holding a guy's daughter hostage and threatening to set her one fire and mail her body parts to the dad if he doesn't make the ransom drop according to plan.

There's a unique personality and story to each song, ranging from a chorus of ghouls going over the obituaries to an Ed Sullivan Show parody. If you dig horror literature and movies then I think you'll be able to appreciate this album, particularly the creative lyrics that tell actual tales instead of repeating dull hooks over and over again.

I bought the CD befor they hit it big. They sold it on their myspace (myspace.com/creaturefeaturemusic). This Cd is remixed and has one more song. Creature Feature is a two man band but has added a drummer Kevin Majorino. They are a goulish delight. They take poems, films and other things to turn them into a crazy fun adventure! Their bigest hit A Gorey Demise which is a bunch of obituaries.
"A Is For Amber
Who Drowned In A Pool

B Is For Billy
Who Was Eaten By Ghouls

C Is For Curt
With Disease Of The Brain

D Is For Daniel
Derailed On A Train

E Is For Erik
Who Was Buried Alive

F Is For Frank
Who Was Stabbed Through The Eye

G Is For Greg
Who Died In The Womb

H Is For Heather
Who Was Sealed In A Tomb

One By One, We Bite The Dust
We Kick The Bucket And Begin To Rust
Give Up The Ghost When Your Number's Up
We All Fall Down

Ashes To Ashes, Bones To Paste
You'll Wither Away In Your Resting Place
Eternity In A Wooden Case
We All Fall Down"

I highly recomend this band! They are such nice guys I have had the delight of working with them and meeting them!!!!

if you threw voltaire, nightmare before christmas, a bunch of b horror movies and green day into a blender and pressed high, creature future would be the delicious result.

creature features's songs remind me a lot of voltaire's, sans the cabaret sound. these are definitely rock songs and they're all catchy, the lead singer has a good voice. they sing about evil carnivals (a perfect theme song for 'johannes cabal the necromancer'), how to kill zombies, bodysnatcher invasions, and pay brilliant homage to edward gorey's gashlycrumb tinies and edgar allan poe.

my 14 year old son loves this album and so do i. i know what i'll be listening to on halloween.
