Yeah… I totally feel you on this one. Fans of extreme metal know the snuggle-struggle — there’s even a […]

A few days ago, a friend of mine on Facebook posted a link announcing that “Rage Against The Machine were getting back together for a new album and tour!” And when I clicked over to the actual article, it turned out to be one of those annoying prank “FOOLED YOU” links. And I thought, of […]

Three of the Year’s Best Horror Films You Can Still See in Theaters (If You Hurry!)

We’re less than four months into the year, but it’s already clear 2017 is definitely a banner year for controversial, provocative horror films. Case in point: Blumhouse’s GET OUT and SPLIT have both passed the $100 million mark in US box-office returns, and GET OUT has garnered the most positive reviews of any film released this year. But […]

Hear A Track From Bill Moseley & Phil Anselmo’s New Album “Songs of Darkness And Despair”

Kristof has […]

Sexual Hysteria in Japan — Exploring TETSUO: THE IRON MAN

Transformation. Experimental animation. The man becomes a machine. Sexual extremity. Video game aesthetics. Nightmares. Battles. Japanese culture turned inside out. There is a lot to penetrate with TETSUO: THE IRON MAN. I’m not terribly intimate with the minutiae of Japanese history, but I do know that the nation was formed sometime in the 600s BCE, making […]

Norwegian Black Metal Frontman Elected to City Council — Against His Will

Gylve “Fenriz” Nagell, lead singer of venerable Norwegian black metal band Darkthrone, can add “city councilman” to his dark resume. Fenriz was recently elected to the city council of Kolbotn, an Oslo suburb, in spite of campaigning against his own election. A good citizen (and an avid hiker), Fenriz agreed to add his name to […]

We Talk The SLAYER “Repentless” Music Video Trilogy With Director BJ McDonnell!

It started one year ago with a prison riot. A mysterious man in an eye patch elicits the outbreak of violence to take out a rival. I am, of course, referring to the lead off video and single from Slayer‘s latest album, the title track “Repentless.” Several months later, returning director BJ McDonnell brought back […]

Supergroup “Necromancing The Stone” Hell-Bent On Resurrecting Metal With New Album

Heavy metal and horror make an impeccable pair. Menacing imagery and earsplitting guitar sweeps are as perfect together as peanut butter and jelly. Flowers and sunshine. Dirt and maggots. Refrigerators and severed body parts. They’re just made for each other. The band Necromancing the Stone has entwined and cemented this morbid union of music and […]

Watch These Guys Rock The F Out Of Master Of Puppets On Banjo!

This isn’t the first time that we’ve featured the insanely talented, multi-instrumental musician Rob Scallon on the site. Last time we saw him, he was rockin’ the hell out of Megadeth’s thrash metal classic “Holy Wars… The Punishment Due” on a custom made electric shovel! (Seeing is believing, fiends, and you can see it here!) Today, […]

Can Your Mind Handle The Terrifying “Music” of :STALAGGH: and :GULAGGH:?

When it comes to horror music, you have a lot to choose from — provided you have a strong stomach. If you have a high tolerance for extremely dark and wholly nihilistic death metal, than you have hundreds and hundreds of bands — most of them from Norway — who eagerly sing about ripping apart […]
