Eerie Von's Spidercider "That's All There Is" CD

Ah, this is where it all comes together for former Samhain/Danzig member (and Misfits photographer/roadie) Eerie Von. This album, originally released in 2006, is a heavy rock album with a spooky singalong punk aesthetic. It's impressive that Eerie wrote, performed, and produced this himself, as it sounds like a full-on live band. He can write some damned catchy tunes, and the inspiration from his previous bands is detectable perhaps, but 'Spidercider' certainly isn't ripping off anything. In fact, songs like 'Hey Louisa' owe as much to the Ramones as anything else - classic rapidfire punk with pop-song melodics. Solid work, and worthy of your attention if these references are your thang, mang. (Ghastly Records)
