This is pretty much what I listen to half of the time, John Congleton is creepy to no end. If you like music that could be a horror movie then check them out. If your easily frightened run far far away and put on some ska. I don't really know what to compare them to people I know who like Murder By Death tend to be into this band if thats any help. I mean really in my book you can't go wrong with a band that uses Kitchen knives for percussion.
