After two experimental/ambient albums, UK doom metal band My Silent Wake releases their first metal album since Damnatio Memoriae (2015). Set for a release sometime in mid-February, There Was Death will be the band’s tenth studio album, and contains some of their heaviest stuff to date with guest doom metal legend Greg Chandler of Esoteric, providing some growls and additional keys.
Megan is a vampire hunter, and teamed up with the bumbling Ned, the half-breed Andrew and a few others, they look to take down the bloodsuckers, but not before busting a move or breaking into song!
Mitch Stockridge is a best-selling author of motivational self-help books. Everyone wants to know where he gets his inspiration? Once people start coming up missing, all last seen with the author, a detective becomes suspicious when an ex-girlfriend claims he has a “monster” in his house that he feeds these people to and in return gets his inspiration for his books. Just an ex trying to damage his reputation with crazy stories, or is it something worse?
The Old West was known for its gunslingers, lawmen and of course the soiled doves that made a living in the many brothels that were found in all the frontier and mining towns, that were established to entertain all the tough men that flocked to these lawless places. It’s not surprising that many of these shady ladies do not lie quiet in their graves. The heartbreak and sorrow known only to them, tied them to this earth forever. These are some of their stories.
Nameless and faceless, The Voyager has come upon us with his dark ambient soundscape: Flames of Genesis. Chilling sounds and droning noises; seven soundtracks take the listener beyond that dark expanse we call “space” into the realm of Interstellar Transmigration Part I: A Bridge to Further Realms.
Hand of Fire was formed in 2010 by vocalist Jim Settle as just a project. After a variation of members the band finally started in 2015 consisting of Jim Settle (vocals), Tiago Souza (guitars), Tom Eaton (bass), and Bill Davies (drums). Their debut album, originally titled Let the Killings Begin, was set for release in December of 2016. After much delay and anticipation the album finally dropped with the new title Nuclear Sunrise.
The name Frozen Ocean brings with it many things. Some may say “atmospheric black metal,” while others say “dark ambient” or just simply “black metal.” In all honesty it depends on which release you’ve heard. Regardless, the name is well known in all of these genres, and now the mind behind this project, Vaarwel, is offering this compilation FREE to those who wish to discover more.
I am very particular when it comes to rap music, and this being only the second rap album that I’ve reviewed should speak volumes about how I feel about this artist and release. Beyond Redemption is Lex the Hex Master’s second LP, and after the success of Contact and his EPs many fans anticipated this album’s release. It finally dropped on Halloween!
Though this film has been out for fourteen years now, I had only heard of it a couple years ago. It was described to me as “legendary” and many reviews described it as being the “worst film ever made.” Being a fan of independent, B films and critically-panned movies I decided I had to check it out and throw in my two cents as well, as we’re coming upon the release of The Disaster Artist, a film that is about the making of The Room.
This was a very big year for The ScareFest Horror and Paranormal Convention.
