Instead of feeling cornered or trapped by its "psychobilly" label, the Koffin Kats embrace it. The tattooed, mohawked and pompadour-sporting trio possesses endless energy, meaning that its music is fast-paced, punk-derived and just a little bit evil. The band's sound isn't limited to just one genre, however; anthemic new songs prove that the Koffin Kats really know how to bring the horror business. (Think a slightly punk-rock Elvis Presley singing the Misfits.) Its live shows are always lively and fun, but take care: Sometimes the Koffin Kats excite audiences so much, its fans get a little rowdy and aggro.
