"The Devil's Horns Kill The Matador"

High stepping and jack jumping out of the tattered social fabric of southern new jersey; the cattle has been set free. He who wishes riches upon himself shall be condemned, the Earth needs not sacrifice, only respect. Recycling just about anything with a resonation, tone palates beware, for we do what we shall to express our euphonious desires abroad. Accordion thrashing high and thousand-pound organ ties in with lighter-than-breath instrumentation for the most creative brain scattering you’ve had in quite a long while. - Manhattan Projekt/

"From Incubate Festival 2009"

"Last year The Devil’s Blood slaughtered a bull to use the blood and this year The Devil's Horns Kill The Matador. They will do that by mixing live sampling, percussion, piano, horns, bells, drums, organs and other stuff. Shouldn’t that be fun?" - Incubate Festival, 2009 - Incubate Festival, 2009

The Devil's Horns Kill The Matador is a group with high energy spawned from the
woods of southern New Jersey. The music they create is what some people would
call "sporadic". Literally jumping from one thing to the next, these boys put
emphasis and subtly in every song. Their stories touch on personal topics but
are told through a variety of metaphors and smilies. Between the vague
understanding of each word it's sometimes hard to think about what instruments
they'll use next, but somehow each section melds into an ongoing melody. Some
may be slightly confused about what is actually going on in their live set
because certain sounds come out of nowhere and are not always visible. Although
being only two people, they manage to fill the shoes of 4 or 5 and are
constantly moving around the stage. With every instrument you can imagine they
take inspiration from even the smallest things (ex. mouse trap) but they make
their presence known with a powerful organ center stage. What's important to
grasp is the construction and performance as a whole. Visually they bring a
random collection of items you might see at a yard sale, which corresponds to
the way their music is then played. From high pitched cartoon yells to deep
raspy church preacher vocals they really put on an energetic show.
