"It's an interesting genre, the "Horror Rock 'n Roll" scene, if that's the right term. A lot of it is influenced from The Misfits, and I'm sure these guys are fans of Glen Danzig's old band. Having said that, these guys are going to have a broader appeal as they are not full-blown punk and contain some good old fashioned Rock N' Roll into the mix. Put it this way, I was very pleasantly surprised as a lot these bands tend to be more about the makeup and acting scary. These guys can play, the drumming is dead on, the backing vocals are tight, the guitars are blistering and frontman "Screamin" Elvis Sleaze can carry a tune." - RockHardPlace.

With a mix of 50s doo-wop, rock n roll cord progressions, sex, violence, and horror movies - The Memphis Murder Men take rock 'n roll seriously and make sure you know it.

  • Band Members:

    - "Screamin" Elvis Sleaze - vocals - Dre - bass - Danny Valentino - guitar - Jesse - drums

    The Memphis Murder Men (formerly known as The Brain Invaders) formed over 6 years ago, and have played every venu in Pittsburgh and the surrounding areas. Along with shows in Philadelpia, New York, Virginia, and D.C. The Memphis Murder Men have recently left pittsburgh and traveled west to Berkeley Ca. With high hopes to reach stardom, the band is now attacking the music scene with plans to rock harder and take their music more seriously than ever before. With help of the newest releases: One Night To Kill (ep), Bloody Bottles And Broken Hearts (full length cd)and two previous self promoted albums (The Day The Earth Stands Still, and Sometimes They'll Come Back). The Memphis Murder Men Have plenty of great material under their belts and feel extremely confident they can accomplish their goals.

    The Memphis Murder Men have one of the best live performances. They feel "if you want to hear a band- buy the cd. If you want to see a band go to a show". The Memphis Murder Men put on a supercharged stage show with non stop energy along with violent lyrics, in your face distortion, and heart pounding drums. With help of all of these elements The Memphis Murder Men gladly stand out from your typical "cookie cutter" Pittsburgh punk / rock n roll bands. The bands music and stage show appeals to many styles of music and has something for the punks,rock a billy crowd, skinheads, greasers, and even metalheads.

    "We're putting the nail in the coffin of bad rock n' roll and won't stop until we've made sure we've accomplished our goal. We're from Pittsburgh, home of the zombie flicks. If anyone has any right to play music about sex, death, and rock n' roll, it's us. We are rock n' roll."

      the term "rock 'n roll"... i hate that... anyways your chords are predictable... VERY much so... your singer sucks goddamn... thought grown men would be at least-hmmm-good.

      i agree. good vocals, catchy chord progression---overall good sound. distantly reminds me of something, but i can't put my finger on it...anyways, keep it up!
