Horror punk (sometimes called Horror rock) is a music genre that mixes proto-gothic and Punk rock sounds with morbid and violent imagery and lyrics, which are often influenced by horror films or science fiction B-movies.
The genre is similar to and sometimes overlaps with Deathrock, although deathrock leans more towards an atmospheric gothic rock sound while horror punk leans towards a 1950s-influenced Doo-wop and Rockabilly sound.
Horror punk music is typically more aggressive and melodic than deathrock.
