I was completely unfamiliar with Lana Blac until I saw her perform at Fright Fest 15. After an awesome performance she hooked me up with a t shirt and CD. Drawing musical inspiration from Gothic metal and shock rock, the vampiress has hit the scene hard, heavy and bloody with her debut album, Nocturnal.

When Barry shuffles off to find a back entrance, Heather sits delicately on a porch swing, only to feel the hairs on her scalp rise; infamous Leatherface (Robert Jacks) has crept up behind her and is plucking teased hairs from her tiara.
