Capital Chaos TV has uploaded video footage of DEAD CROSS‘s entire August 29 performance at Ace Of Spades in Sacramento, California. Check it out below.
DEAD CROSS is the Southern California outfit featuring drummer Dave Lombardo (ex-SLAYER, SUICIDAL TENDENCIES, MISFITS) and singer Mike Patton (FAITH NO MORE).
The self-titled debut album from DEAD CROSS, which is rounded out by bassist Justin Pearson (THE LOCUST, RETOX, HEAD WOUND CITY) and guitarist Michael Crain (RETOX, FESTIVAL OF DEAD DEER), was released on August 4 via Ipecac Recordings. The effort was helmed by producer Ross Robinson, who has previously worked with KORN, DEFTONES, SEPULTURA and LIMP BIZKIT, among others, and was mastered at Golden Mastering in Ventura, California.
Patton told Rolling Stone that he got involved with DEAD CROSS after reaching out to Lombardo to see if he could release the band’s album on Ipecac. After getting a text from the drummer asking him to join the group, “my jaw dropped,” the singer said. “I was like, ‘Who, me? Hmm …’ And I think it took like all of 30 seconds, but in a sarcastic way, I’m like, ‘Yeah, of course. I can do this. Are you sure you want me?’ So I kind of second-guessed him a little bit. And he said, ‘Man, you’d be our dream vocalist.’ And then it was just a matter of logistics. I decided to record it here in my basement, which is fitting. It shouldn’t sound too polished.”

Legendary Misfits Guitarist Doyle Wolfgang Von Frankenstein is set to star in Death Ward 13, a remake of the cult-classic film Don’t Look In The Basement. With his iconic Devilock hair and impressive physical build, Doyle is best known as the guitar player for the American horror punk band the Misfits and will play the most terrifying character in the film. Now in pre-production, Death Ward 13 is directed by award-winning horror filmmaker Todd Nunes (All Through The House) and produced by The Readmond Company.
“I’m looking forward to starting my movie career with a starring role in Death Ward 13,” says Doyle. “It’s time to release the beast on the big screen. Let the killing begin!”
“With Doyle’s horror punk background, we’ve always been looking for opportunities to have him cross over into film, but nothing has sparked his interest until now,” says Bruce Miyaki (Insane Management.) “Death Ward 13 is a great breakout film for Doyle – his fans are going to love it.”
Although he is known for playing guitar with the horror punk band the Misfits, which helped create the horror punk genre, Doyle also has a solo project rightfully named Doyle. In 2013 Doyle released the Abominator album with Monsterman Records, and he is currently on tour in the USA supporting his new CD As We Die in stores May 5th through the Monsterman Records/EMP Label Group. Death Ward 13 is Doyle’s first starring role in a film; he is currently in talks with the film’s producers and Monsterman co-founder Bruce Miyaki to provide music tracks for the soundtrack.
Death Ward 13 is inspired by S.F. Brownrigg’s Don’t Look In The Basement (1973) and Edgar Allen Poe’s short story “The System Of Doctor Tarr And Professor Fether” (1845). Death Ward 13 promises to deliver a thrilling grindhouse-inspired remake with a shocking collection of criminally insane patients: botched lobotomies, necrophilia, sexual deviance, and violent psychopaths.
“I’m excited to work with Doyle,” says director Todd Nunes. “Doyle will be portraying a ruthless killer called The Duke – a psychopath and the most twisted and terrifying character in the movie. I’m a big fan of Doyle and his music and always thought he would make a menacing horror movie villain. With his threatening looks and massive build, this man will scare the crap out of everyone. Get ready for a horrifying ride!”
Death Ward 13 is Todd Nunes’ bloody love letter to Don’t Look In The Basement. This reimagined version will give fans a taste of the original film with added practical effects and bloody gore for modern horror fanatics. Death Ward 13 will also feature more nurses, freaks, and blood as well as a brutal climax with an updated, disturbing twist.
As announced on the Black Carpet at the The Epiphone Revolver Music Awards 12/13, former MISFITS guitarist DOYLE WOLFGANG VON FRANKENSTEIN has signed a label and distribution deal with EMP LABEL GROUP, who will not only release AS WE DIE, the upcoming sophomore LP from the legendary guitarist’s eponymous project DOYLE, but distribute all releases for the guitarist’s label MONSTERMAN RECORDS.
EMP, the label vessel of Megadeth bassist David Ellefson, with operations headed up by former Corporate Punishment President/A&R/Marketing exec Thom Hazaert, home to artists including A Killer’s Confession, Motograter, Heaven Below (featuring Patrick Kennison of Lita Ford/Union Underground), Broken Teeth, Doll Skin, Helstar, Cage9, Green Death, Arise in Chaos, former Faith No More vocalist Chuck Mosley, and many more, started out with deep ties into the Doyle camp, according to EMP’s Hazaert.
“I worked really closely with Bruce (Miyaki – Doyle’s Manager) and MONSTERMAN on (Doyle’s 2013 release) Abominator, and I was actually the marketing director out of the gate on that release. Over the years, I’ve stayed involved, and we’re all good friends, and with David (Ellefson), who also has a great relationship with DOYLE, eventually as EMP came to fruition the conversation inevitably came up about seeing if there was a fit there. With everything else going on in all of our Worlds, it took a bit of a detour to finally get here, but I can’t express how excited we are to finally be able to put this all together. The legacy of someone like DOYLE, who is SUCH a legendary talent, is always such an amazing gift when it comes to putting out records, especially for a label like EMP, where we are all HUGE, genuine music fans. And there’s really not many out there who can hold a candle to DOYLE, in terms of talent OR legacy.”
EMP President David Ellefson agrees. “I’ve always loved Doyle and we’ve had a great relationship that goes back a long time. We’d started some talk last year when Doyle and Alissa (White-Gluz) came out to do some stuff with Metal Allegiance, and it just became an ongoing conversation over the past year. Now that it’s official, we’re extremely excited to be able to not only push out this new DOYLE record, which is amazing, but all the killer MONSTERMAN titles via EMP.”
Says Doyle, “When Dave came to me with an offer for our new CD As We Die it was a no brainer. He has been a good friend of mine for 20 + years, and has never done me wrong, and in this business that’s unheard of. We didn’t want to release it ourselves on Monster Man, we wanted a bigger push and EMP has a lot of exciting things happening in 2017 that will do that for us.”
DOYLE the current project of Von Frankenstein, with CANCERSLUG vocalist Alex “Wolfman” Story, and a current lineup rounded out by bassist Brandon Strate and drummer Brandon Pertzborn, continues the lineage of Doyle’s former projects, pairing crushing metal riffs with ferocious Punk Rock swagger and the theatrical intensity one would expect from one of the reigning kings, and erstwhile creators, of Horror-Core.
In addition to the upcoming sophomore release from DOYLE, EMP/MONSTERMAN will release several limited edition vinyl configurations, as well as a CD reissue of DOYLE’s Critically-acclaimed ABOMINATOR, the upcoming LP from LA Industrial Metal mainstays DEAD GIRLS CORP., and several additional 2017 releases TBA.
Recently Amb Pirate sat down with Doyle Wolfgang von Frankenstein at The Boardwalk to talk metal, cats and more.

DWF. What is decompress?
CCTV. Letting it go, exhaling.
DWF. Go to sleep, thats what works for me.
CCTV. Your workout regimen is proof that you can exercise anywhere you don’t need a gym to get fit because we have a lot of people that look up to you and you are influential if you were to have a television show to help America get fit what would be some key points.
DWF. The only key point is consistency, that’s it no days off if you got something to do you course you got to take the day off, other than that you just got to make it part of your day.
CCTV. I understand you’re passionate about animals your totally vegan is there any charities or organizations that you would like us to know about your involved in?

CCTV.I want to talk a little bit about your girlfriend Alissa, the other thing you are very passionate about, so you guys are both really busy musicians and you’re touring all the time what’s it like when you finally get to see each other after having so much time apart, do just shut off the world.
DWF It’s awkward actually yeah she’s just landed in Greece today she’s starting a tour, I might go get on that tour with her, what we do is go on each others tours, those guys are cool enough to let me go, its awesome.
CCTV. Tell me about your hot sauce, what inspired you having to do with the healthy choice the passion of yours?
DWF Well friend of mine wanted to make some hot sauce so I tried his hot sauce one thing led to another and found a guy who was making hot sauce and got him on the bus told him I wanted in it he brought a bunch of samples and we picked them out and its really good. I’m fresh out, we gave the last bottle to John 5.
CCTV. what else can you tell us Doyle as far as what you have going on this year finishing up the year plans for 2016?
DWF. We have a new record coming out, all we have to do is mix it, master it, titles, artwork and put it out. Before that we’ll probably do some more shows with Jon 5. hopefully do some festivals in Europe and Id like to tour with Arch Enemy. Im going to the NAMM show.
CCTV. What do you enjoy about NAMM?
DWF\. I really don’t enjoy it, I have social anxiety, there’s so many people there now it’s sardines and everybody can see me from across the room, I cant walk 2 feet without someone taking 25 pictures. I can play to a 100.000 people no problem. put five or ten people in front of me, I’m not having it.
CCTV. thank you so much for meeting with capital chaos is there anything else you’d like to say to your fans.

Sprung from the fantastic brain of Misfits leader Jerry Only and the fiery pool of talent in Los Angeles, She Demons is the all-girl band for this generation. Combining old school ‘60s doo-wop and ‘70s power chord rock with classic punk and metal, the band is creating a sound that will attract loud music lovers of all kinds. As the band’s creator and collaborator, Only has a big picture plan for She Demons. “Women are a strong presence in music. When I was a kid I saw Susie Quatro and The Runaways, and the guys loved them but the girls also admired them. Today, young girls will want to be She Demons. I see these very talented girls as the kind kids can look up to. They are so talented and focused.”One of the group’s original songs, “B-Movie,” cleverly incorporates retro references to monster flicks while showing off She Demons’ writing and performing strengths. In addition to other scorching covers of classic Motown songs, She Demons deliver a memorable version of “He’s a Rebel,” showcasing both great guitar work and sweet vocal harmony.
