TRIBUTE ALBUM IN HONOR OF BAND’S 25TH ANNIVERSARY RELEASED
 
 
 
(The Invisible Dimension – October 2013) Despite the efforts of all sane members of the scientific and artistic community, CREEPSVILLE ’13: A TRIBUTE TO FORBIDDEN DIMENSION was released among the unsuspecting masses at www.creepsville13.com. Nineteen bands came together to pay tribute to FORBIDDEN DIMENSION, in honor of the Calgary horror-rock band’s 25th Anniversary.

Started in 1988 by Jackson Phibes, Forbidden Dimension has championed both the horror-monster mentality as well as the independent spirit that has propelled the band, still active, through a quarter-of-a-century. Over the course of five CDs, numerous singles, and side projects, Forbidden Dimension have garnered a world-wide cult following for his scary blend of garage rock, punk, and metal with science fictional, ghoulish story telling. Twenty-five years after the initial Into The Forbidden Dimension release, CREEPSVILLE ’13 aims to honor and celebrate the band’s life and accomplishments.

Taking its name from Creepsville ’99, Forbidden Dimension’s sophomore release, CREEPSVILLE ’13 brings together bands from around the world, all who were influenced by Forbidden Dimension’s music. On this compilation, you’ll find: fellow Calgary rockers like CRIPPLE CREEK FAIRIES, EXPLODING PIGS and THE BROWNS; gothic rock juggernauts THE NEW JACOBIN CLUB; blood-and-bluegrass maestro BOB KEELAGHAN from the AGNOSTIC MOUNTAIN GOSPEL CHOIR; the king of horror radio, TOMB DRAGOMIR; surf daddys SKURKARNA and THE DEAD BEAT; Nashville monsters THE CREEPING CRUDS WITH DEAD DICK HAMMER; Northeastern garage creatures THE QUASI-MEN and THE EVIL STREAKS; JIMMY PSYCHO of industrial-horror-punk vanguards PSYCHO CHARGER; grindcore noise felons BREATHE KNIVES; lo-fi hero GHOSTS RUN WILD; Saskatoon scum-rockers SAVAGE HENRY AND THE INFAMOUS ONE POUNDERS and THE GREAT SHAKIN’ FEVERS; and the next generation of independent creeps, SOLID SILVER and MUMMULA.

Proving that monsters have a heart, all profits from the initial sale of CREEPSVILLE ’13 benefit to the Calgary Humane Society (http://www.calgaryhumane.ca/)
