This is a manly man's ghoul-rock. For those of you who sometimes feel that this genre gets a little too silly -- check out Psycho Charger. There's enough fun-lovin' testosterone for even the butch-est of rockers. - Blu


Say out loud, "Unbridled psychobilly mayhem."... The guitar twangs, covered in reverb and distortion, the vocals rant and bellow, the bass pounds, and the drums thunder like nobody's business...If you want some rock and roll to kick you in the teeth and get you out of the doldrums, it's right here, baby, right here. - Sandi

Bio

N.Y.C.'s Bloodiest band and the Bastard Sons of The King hisself, PSYCHO CHARGER, deliver an ultra-Horrific death-march thru the rotting R'n'R graveyard that's been described as "Horror Rawkillbilly"!!! Digging up influences from Rockabilly, industrial, punk, surf, and gothic, these N.Y.C. psycho-rockers provide a horror-influenced, mutant cross-bred psycho-industrial-rawk assault that kicks and flails like a pissed-off two-headed bastard child at a family reunion!!! This is truly evil heavy-twang hell rock from the righteous side of the Devil's trailer park!!!

In the time the band has been together, they have released two solo releases, appeared on numerous compilations, on TV spots for Spike TV. Being a very hard working band, Psycho Charger has played shows both nationally and internationally , sharing the stage with many nationally touring bands. Psycho Charger recently headlined the "Bring Out Your Dead" music festival in London, England, the Rue Morgue Magazine Festival of Fear in Toronto, Ontario, and made a triumphant return to the west coast this year by playing the main stage at INK-N-IRON Festival!

PSYCHO CHARGER has just released their third full-length CD, Mark of the Psycho. Coming in a bit louder and heavier than previous releases, the new CD is a screaming testament of the band’s energy, musical aptitude, and love for B movie horror. This past year saw PSYCHO CHARGER have music in two horror films: 2001 Maniacs: Field of Screams and Night of the Demons!!! The band is preparing new music for the upcoming horror anthology film “Chillerama” directed by Adam Green as well as the Ministry tour documentary “Fix”!!!

This is truly evil heavy-twang hell rock from the righteous side of the Devil's trailer park!!!

Founded a few years back in the sin city section of N.Y.C., PSYCHO CHARGER quickly obtained a firm foothold in the NYC music scene by playing a regular string of live shows, most notably the "Grave Rockers" and "Gothabilly" showcases. With each show, the band witnessed show attendance increase due in equal parts to their unique mutant cross-bred sound and "Horror-themed" live shows consisting of "Satanic Terrorists", "Ghost Warrior", and "The Blood Feast Show"! Notoriety of the band increased when some shows resulted in visits by the NYPD and/or the NYFD Fire Marshall!!!

Shortly after their arrival, PSYCHO CHARGER hooked up with the NYC-based Skully Records for the release of their debut CD, which included 16 tracks. The CD was released in August 2001 and did very well for the band, earning it favorable reviews in numerous magazines, as well as air play on radio stations scattered across the country and abroad. As a result, PSYCHO CHARGER established a fan base that ranges from rockabilly hellcats to punk rockers to the gothic/industrial/techno types. Sadly, the events of 9/11 came about, causing the record label to leave NYC, and eventually shut down, leaving the band without label support, and the CD became unavailable.

Fast forward to 2004, where the band began working with the Denver-based Antidote Records label to release their second full-length CD titled Horror Rawkillbilly!!!, which included thirteen all-new songs and found the band continuing on, and expanding on their unique sound. As it turns out, a string of internal troubles with the label eventually led to PSYCHO CHARGER and Antidote to part ways, and this CD also became unavailable.

Throughout these two label experiences, the band managed to retain all the rights and publishing to their music and released Curse of the Psycho on their very own Rot 'N' Roll Army Records. Weighing in at a full 20 tracks in length, Curse contains songs from their first two CDs as well as one brand new one. The CD is currently available in a special "Limited edition" LP Style packaging that includes a "vinyl look" CD and jacket art by Unkle Pigors from Toxic Toons (Metallica, Murderdolls, Genitorterers). Curse of the Psycho has done very well for the band as it was named "Best Horror Rock CD of the Year" by Virus Magazine, and landed the band a feature in Rue Morgue Magazine and Drop Dead Magazine. Since it's release, Curse of the Psycho has sold thousands of copies worldwide via shows, online sales, downloads, and many hours of hard work from the band.
In 2008, Curse of the Psycho was released throughout Europe on the Stockholm, Sweden-based GMR Music Group Record Label. The new release of Curse features an alternate track listing, and ex
