A Cry of Hounds formed in late 2007, rising from the ashes of destiny to soar straight into your ears, your heart, and your soul with their unique brand of 60's- influenced, B-grade monster movie garage rock.
Many have inquired into the origins of this intriguing musical group...
Searching for musically kindred spirits, two-fingered guitarist/vocalist Screamin' J was released from the home for the criminally deluded after serving two consecutive life sentences for various musical crimes too macabre to repeat. Desperate to support his almost diabolical obsession, he agreed to donate portions of his body to musical "science". He sacrificed two of the fingers of his left hand and significant portions of his vocal cords in a bizarre and doomed attempt to create a rock and roll super-monster. Interestingly, he found very little if any effect on his playing and singing ability...
Recovering from the botched transplant operation, he was fortunate to meet drummer Richard "The Wood Chipper", who was assisting in a laboratory experiment attempting to cross DNA stolen from Thirteenth Floor Elevators' frontman Roky Erickson with the remains of Bela Lugosi. Tragically but not surprisingly, the experiment was a failure. However, the seeds of righteous musical mayhem were sown in the lab that day. These seeds would bear much fruit...
Mary Queen of Vampires was persuaded to join the band as bass player and vocalist after being promised a ready supply of music to feed her insatiable desire for all things dark and beautiful...her thundering and poetic bass riffs flow and pulse like the very wellspring of life itself...
Captain Curtis the Undead Pirate was enticed to make for land and jump ship upon receiving the invitation to complete the monstrous ensemble. His keyboard prowess and soaring tenor proved the final piece of the puzzle...and his expert ability with various hand-saws proves useful from time to time as well...
This, then, is A Cry of Hounds in all their garage rock glory. You owe it to yourself to check out their music. And you owe it to yourself to play it LOUD!
