The Coffinshakers - Black Sunday

What if Johnny Cash had been more interested in horror, vampires, werewolves than in walking the line? Meet the Coffinshakers.

Formed in 1995 in Karlstad, Sweden, by Rob Coffinshaker (Robert Fjällsby), the Coffinshakers eked out an existence from small printings of 7" red vinyl singles and occasional gigs to a mostly uninterested audience. Their first single, "Dracula Has Risen from the Grave," inspired by the classic Hammer horror film, appeared in 1996.

Consisting of Rob on vocals and guitar, Joe Undertaker on bass, Fang on electric guitar, and Andy Bones on drums.

The band's direction of merging traditional country sounds of Johnny Cash and Waylon Jennings with full-bodied lyrics.

Todays tune "Black Sunday" is a song that fits into this Sunday, a day that started so well, with sun, heat, and summer and then turned and went black, rainy and miserable. The tune is taken from the album "Dark Wings Over Finland" released 2007
