Bill Johnson, who gained genre fame by playing Leatherface in Texas Chainsaw Massacre: Part 2, and his musical partner, Nurse Hatchet, are proud to announce the release of their latest collaboration, Faust Haiku, Part 3. Dig it!
Johnson and Hatchet (sounds like a great name for a bluegrass band!) have long been working together on their Faust Haiku project. Always envisioning it as a three-song compilation, the duo already have the first two segments completed (see videos below) and will be dropping the conclusion on, when else, Halloween.
So if the Halloween holiday season wasn’t awesome enough, now you can add this to your list of things to see and do. Nurse Hatchet (a.k.a. Mixtress Demonatrix) and Wild Bill Johnson describe the music style as Electro Erotic Industrial Horror Punk Fetish Metal, and as you’ll see by the videos below, they live up to it.
The original segment of Faust Haiku was number one on the industrial metal music charts for over nine months, and each time Johnson and Hatchet have collaborated, their song has hit number one on the industrial and industrial metal charts. Their influences include Slayer, Mr. Bungle, Fantomas, Ministry, Revolting Cocks, My Life with The Thrill Kill Kult, Rob Zombie, Nine Inch Nails, Gary Numan, David Lynch, Wendy O. Williams, John Carpenter soundtracks, and Danny Elfman.
Both of the original Faust Haiku parts are below in their entirety. They were created by Wild Bill Leatherface Johnson and Nurse Hatchet with Johnson writing and performing the lyrics/vocals and Hatchet providing additional vocals and composing the music with Patrick D-Day Madcox. Hatchet also directs the videos, which feature F/X by Demonatrix Trax & FX and comic/video visual artwork by Lyndal KONG Ferguson, the official Mixtress Demonatrix comic artist, and featuring additional artwork by Ju Gomez and Fernando Ignatuis Martin.
Faust Haiku, Part 3 will be released on Halloween, and the video can be seen on the Mixtress Demonatrix YouTube Channel. You can also purchase CDs of the entire Faust Haiku compilation at the Mixtress Demonatrix SoundClick page. Be the first on your block to own this insanely original piece of music. You won’t be disappointed.
We spoke with Nurse Hatchet herself, and she was more than happy to share a nightmare or two. “For fans looking for more psychodelik creative collaborations from Bill Johnson and me, we are gearing up to release our next project very soon,” Hatchet said. “Still top secret and in the works right now, but there is already more from our collaborative efforts to check out right now with our recent release of the P.I.L. cover mixes of Death Disco Demonatrix & the Nurse’s Orders of Death (tribute). Lick the kink and enjoy thoroughly.”
