New album out September 27 -featuring Alice Cooper!

“The title track Necrophaze is one of my favorites on the new album, and not just because it features my shock rock hero Alice Cooper. Alice helps deliver the first brutal axe swing on this album, starting the record off and getting the blood flowing immediately. I like to compare Necrophaze to the movie Creepshow, as if every song is a different part of the story. This is the first part of the story and it cuts straight to the bone. Enter the Necrophaze.” – Wednesday 13.
Necrophaze is the first Wednesday 13 record to feature guest spots, which include performances by Alice Cooper, Roy Mayorga of Stone Sour, Alexi Laiho of Children of Bodom, and Cristina Scabbia of Lacuna Coil. Also making an appearance on the album is Jeff Clayton, member of legendary punk bands, Antiseen & GG Allin’s Murder Junkies.
