Detroit rap star and independent music mogul Esham is set to release an hour long musical creep show "Hellaween: Pure Horror" on October 13th.

Independent hip hop kingpin Esham has returned to engrave his name on this year's Halloween season with a new hour long creep show experience, "Hellaween: Pure Horror". Dropping on CD and digital download October 13 through Aknu Media, the new album features 17 polarizing tracks juxtaposed with gore laden sound effects and a host of classic horror villains hell bent on terrorizing audiences worldwide.

Esham adds, "The vision was to manifest a project framed around the psyche of these characters while loosely paying homage to the format of classic radio programs like "War of the Worlds". 'Hellaween' resurrects the best of horror cinemas antagonists while showcasing Esham and his entire label roster rhyming in character throughout the entire album. The production combines a diversified supply of hard hitting compositions with esoteric overtones and smash mouth, b-movie swagger sewn together like stitches in flesh.

Esham's career dates back to 1989 with the release of his debut "Boomin Words from Hell" when he first began mixing hip hop with hard rock and the dark arts. His "acid rap" style of suicidal storytelling, sexploitation and violent street anthems are considered influential to Eminem, D12, Kid Rock, Insane Clown Posse, Twiztid as well as an entire sub-genre within hip hop. "Hellaween: Pure Horror" continues Esham's history of the macabre in an entirely new medium that's a sure shot to rock any costume party, monster ball or haunted house this Halloween.
