From escaping their leash and running amok in the New Wave Of British Heavy Metal scene of the early eighties to being put to sleep just five years later, Tysondog may have only had a short life but still managed to make a name for themselves in a highly competitive scene. A packed Neat Records roster including the likes of Raven, Saracen, Avenger and Venom, plus a proliferation of compilation albums available at the time helped the band attain a level of prominence, their song ‘Eat the Rich’ featuring on the likes of British Steel, Metal Killers Vol 2, and Axe Attack.

The band created their own mini-horror series starring vocalist and horror aficionado Spencer Charnas to correlate with each of the album’s singles, injecting their own narrative into the movies the tracks pay homage to. Following a prequel and four parts, the fifth and final clip– directed by Daniel Hourihan (Manchester By The Sea, In Your Eyes) of Slow Burn Productions— is out now, for the track ‘IT Is The End,’ features musical guest appearances from members of Less Than Jake and Fenix TX.

While it is unrealistic to expect the son of a world-renowned musician to naturally sound like (or even want to sound like) his father, the fact is, when your last name is Dickinson, people are going to judge you based on preconceived notions. Author Joe Hill knows all about it; his father is master horror storyteller Stephen King, and when Hill started out, he intentionally took on his mother’s maiden name (bad pun, sorry, couldn’t resist) to avoid the inevitable comparisons to his old man.Continue reading
