Metro Detroit man's horror music albums will get you ready for Halloween

If you're a fan of slasher horror films, haunted houses or just Halloween -- you'll love Slasher Dave.

Slasher Dave has been writing music since he first learned how to play the guitar in his teens.

Obsessed with horror movies as a young child of the 80s, he started experimenting with synthesizers that were used to score his favorite slasher films. As he started to get deeper into music, he latched on to Punk and Heavy Metal, and incorporates his electronic horror movie influences with these other genres.

The Halloween season was always an obsession too, growing up in Metro Detroit, there was no shortage of Haunted Houses, and this fueled his love for the season even more. He has 4 full length solo albums, which he also does the artwork for, and 3 full lengths from his metal band Acid Witch.

Being a collector of movies, comics, and music himself, he makes music for collectors. His record releases usually include Die-Cut Halloween decorations and paper masks, along with brightly colored vinyl with variants. You can also listen to him on every major digital platform.

Follow him on Instagram for all updates on new music and upcoming shows.
