Dr. Dreadful is a horror rock band from Akron, Ohio. Their music has roots in classic rock, punk, metal, and blues, while their lyrics often take inspiration from B-movies and horror films. The band’s growing and dedicated following enjoys their heavy sound, strong female vocals, and fun but creepy lyrics. Band members Rachel Carano (vocals and guitar), Johnathan Hatter (bass), and Xavier Stone (drums) released their full length album Necropolis in February and continue to play shows, opening for acts such as One-Eyed Doll, Wednesday 13, Dope, Michale Graves, Misfits, Doyle, and Mushroomhead.
