A horror-inspired duo that does for hip hop what Marilyn Manson or Alice Cooper have done for rock is coming to Red Deer this weekend.

Twiztid, a face-painted pair of rap artists from Detroit, will perform on Sunday at the Lotus Nightclub, at 4618 50th Ave.

Formed in 1997, Twiztid is comprised of Jamie Spaniolo and Paul Methric, who go by the stage personas of Jamie Madrox and Monoxide Child.

Spaniolo and Methric are former members of the group House of Krazees, and perform a style of hardcore hip hop known as horrorcore.

According to Spaniolo, who was influenced by KISS, “Think of it as if there was a Halloween or Friday the 13th on wax and Jason and Michael Myers could actually rap, this is what their vibe would sound like.”

The duo that until recently was signed to Psychopathic Records, has released more than a dozen albums over 15 years, including the debut Mostasteless, Freek Show, Mutant, Heartbroken and Homicidal and Abominationz.

Twiztid’s latest independent EP is A New Nightmare.
