Swamp Rats are a unique mix of blues, bluegrass, punk, folk and metal infused in a folk-esque style of music. Folk with an edge is what most people say about Florida’s “Phantom” folk band Swamp Rats. Be sure to like and follow them on Facebook, Twitter, & Instagram for news and tour updates!
“One genre couldn’t even begin to describe Florida-based trio Swamp Rats. The style contains bits of modern train-hopping punk yet is heavily influenced by traditional bluegrass with folk underpinnings — uniquely blended with metal riffs and mucky Southern blues. Each musician plays multiple instruments, so you’ll hear specks of acoustic guitar, banjo, mandolin, stomp box, washboard, and despondent lyrics of life experience and the road.”

Will wrote, produced, and recorded this whole thing on his own. A true one man band.
Will Brack was born and raised in Florida. He has been writing his own songs for years between playing in various bands including Destroy North America (DNA), Sacred Owls, Dougie Flesh and the Slashers just to name a few. Since taking his one man band (OMB) performances live and getting good feedback he has decided to share it with the world! These are songs and stories about his life and more.
Full Length Albums
One of our favorite projects here at Coffins Collective is our Tales of Terror comic book / music compilation. We released issue #1 on Halloween of 2017 with a huge release party at Coffins Print Shop, complete with a one-night-only hell house we built with The Prople and Hypercube Laboratories.
The idea is to pop in the CD to listen to while you read the comic to create a fully immersive experience bringing the comic to life! Each one comes in a special package that is blood spattered, numbered, and signed by Mr. Coffins and delivered straight to you!
Dougie Flesh and the Slashers are a creepy Sci-fi/Horror folk outfit based out of Central Florida. Dougie does a great job of finding unique and talented Slashers on a variety of instruments giving each theatrical, sometimes bloody, live performance it’s own savory flavor.
Extended Play Release
Dougie Flesh and the Slashers S/T EP is probably the most romantic music about flesh eating monsters we have ever heard. It is the perfect soundtrack for a midnight picnic with your graveyard girlfriend.
