Wait, what?! A horrorcore rap review on a Goth webzine? Yeah well, horrorcore rap has been one of my loves for almost twenty years, and I think it would be somewhat dishonest of me to not review at least one album, and what better album to review than Twiztid’s latest release: The Continuous Evilution of Life’s ?’s (pronounced “life’s question marks”), especially since I’ve met quite a few Goths who are fans of them. This is the duo’s eleventh studio album to date, and their second studio album since leaving Psychopathic Records and beginning their own label, Majik Ninja Entertainment.

According to their Facebook page, they’ve been around since 1987 but no previous releases can be found (Weird). It is also very unclear as to who they are, since the members wear costumes that cover their faces.

Having toured 29 countries, played over 700 shows and appeared on over 200+ songs and 16 albums over the past 2 decades, Argyle Goolsby (the co founder of the horror punk troubadours Blitzkid) returns to conjure up the curtain on some new music. He has also played bass alongside Doyle Wolfgang Von Frankenstein (former guitarist of Misfits) in the band Gorgeous Frankenstein. Now flying solo, he has placed his previous EPs and singles onto one full-length album.
