NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD EP by Morricone Youth Album Review

Nov 30, 2016 No Comments by

There aren’t many movies that I so affectionately go back to over and over and over again.  Of course, 1968’s Night of the Living Dead is most definitely one of those flicks.  As if George A. Romero’s zombie masterpiece weren’t great enough, now there’s a new reason to revisit NOTLD. Morricone Youth is a fantastic […]

Cactus Flower EP by Asforteri Album Review

May 03, 2016 No Comments by

“A giallo is not a detective story, it is not a thriller, not a suspense movie, not a horror film.” Rather, according to Ernesto Gastaldi in Troy Howarth’s So Deadly, So Perverse, a giallo “can be any one of these things and also all of these things rolled into one.” Besides being a distinctive style […]

Goblin Rebirth Album Review

Jul 02, 2015 2 Comments by

It’s pretty much impossible to imagine Italian horror cinema without also thinking of Goblin.  Their eerie cinematic soundscapes provided the soundtrack to sudden bloody death and the arrival of demonic evil. I would argue that their soundtrack to Suspiria is not only the best modern horror score but also the LOUDEST. If you remove the […]

Demons Soundtrack 30th Anniversary Edition Review

Apr 28, 2015 No Comments by

It’s been thirty years since the release of Demons (or Dèmoni in its original Italian). Directed by Lamberto Bava and produced by legendary maestro Dario Argento (who received a much bigger billing in advertisements for the film), Demons is a quintessentially ‘80s splatterpunk flick about an isolated movie theater in Berlin that gets overrun by […]

Integrity – Suicide Black Snake Album Review

Jun 30, 2013 No Comments by

Legs McNeil, the co-founder of the revolutionary manifesto known simply as Punk Magazine, once stated that when rock and roll is done right, it is truly the Devil’s music. If this is the case, then the Devil has a helluva good taste in tunes. After accepting this theological pronouncement, the question then becomes: “who are […]

The Dillinger Escape Plan: One of Us Is the Killer Album Review

May 29, 2013 No Comments by

Let us go then, all of us, to that mansion isolated on the island. Now that we are gathered and the will has been read, we must find out who’s responsible for the corpse in the pantry, for one of us is the killer. Sounds like a familiar set-up, no? This is the plot to […]

Full Of Hell: Rudiments of Mutilation Album Review

May 19, 2013 No Comments by

The Jaws of Life—the metaphor, not the hydraulic rescue tool—seem hell-bent on grinding us into dust. The best extreme metal acts recognize this and accept it as a fact of existence. Some choose to sing of surmounting this great impediment, whilst others seek to recreate it and expand upon the vast ugliness of life’s chaos. […]

The 69 Eyes “X” and Humanity Delete “Never Ending Nightmares” Album Reviews

Nov 28, 2012 No Comments by

The 69 Eyes “X” Album Review                   The 69 Eyes are back with their 10th  studio release, “X”.  Recorded in Sweden and Finland, it marks a big achievement for the band. Not too many goth-rock bands last 22 years. As for sound quality, the production seems good. […]

My Dying Bride: A Map Of All Our Failures Album Review

Nov 07, 2012 No Comments by

One of the forefathers of doom metal, My Dying Bride has been making people even more depressed than they already are since 1990. Their 11th studio release, A Map Of All Our Failures, is a great example of how well they’ve become at that particular niche. The album as a whole is pretty good. With […]

Inverticrux: Virgin Reaper Album Review

Jun 03, 2012 No Comments by

New Hampshire’s horror metal maestros, Inverticrux, unleash a veritable soundtrack to our beloved genre with their debut album, Virgin Reaper.  As is typical among bands of the metallic persuasion, Inverticrux has undergone myriad lineup changes, including a not-insignificant one since this album was recorded.  The band now appears poised to assemble material for a follow […]
