Centuries of Decay (Band Interview)

Today we speak to Devin Doucette -guitarist/vocalist from Centuries of Decay: Let’s start with this: What’s the history of your band? Centuries of Decay formed in 2013 in Toronto, Ontario by Myself (Devin Doucette) Derrick Doucette ┬áRob McAllister. Derrick and I grew up in Charlottetown and were involved in the music scene there. I went to school for photography and digital imaging and decided to move up to Toronto in 2005. The love for music was too strong and after a while, I put down the camera and went back to school for Audio Production at The Harris Institute, where he met guitarist Rob McAllister, who shared the same passion for heavy music. All this time, Derrick was still playing […]

Alien: Covenant (Film Review) (Spoilers!)

 

 “Sometimes, in order to create, one must destroy.” – Prometheus. Well here we are after five years of waiting. Five years of wondering. Five years of cake munching. Behold, Alien: Covenant is here. Behold its purity, its beauty, its relative distance from Prometheus. Join me brothers and sisters of the Giger. Join me as we delve into the depths of Alien: Covenant. (I see Wookiee has rescheduled many of my articles. Just go with it folks. You may get the latest review 3 months late, but at least you’re getting it.) SPOILER ALERT! SPOILER ALERT! BLOODY SPOILER ALERT! AVOID THIS ARTICLE IF YOU’VE NOT SEEN ANY OF THE FILMS IN THE FRANCHISE OR THIS FILM. YOU’VE BEEN WARNED! IT’S YOUR […]

More Games!

More games! More games! There are so many games to play. Who has the time? Tacoma: What do you get if you cross the aesthetic beauty of Bioshock with the uniqueness of Systemshock? You get Tacoma, the second game from Fullbright studios. In this game you play as a member of a deep-space station, the Tacoma. Wargroove: I am not a fan of turn-based strategy games, but on rare occasions one of these games comes along with something that appeals to me. This is Wargroove. A wonderful animated turn-based strategy in which 4 players are pitted against each other in a vast and bloody war. Sonic Mania: Behold, the wedgewog is back! God, it’s been years since Sonic first appeared […]

Distrust (Video Game Preview)

I adore The Thing. I have always felt that it is one of the best franchises of all time. The characters were good, the entity was deliciously twisted, the blood and gore and wonderful. Now, I have been waiting for a new game in the franchise for some years. No luck as of yet. But! BUT! Recently an indie game inspired by this amazing franchise has been unleashed upon our world. This is Distrust. Now what we know (I’m writing this article in late June) of this indie game is this: In an isolated Arctic base people are being killed at an alarming rate. As such, you and a small rescue team are sent in to help stop the killings. […]

A few films based on H.P. Lovecraft’s Work

Tell me honestly, are you surprised that I have produced another Lovecraft article? Well if you are, then you must be new here. If not, welcome to another Lovecraftian feast. H.P. Lovecraft’s: Necronomicon, original title Necronomicon, also called Necronomicon: Book of the Dead or Necronomicon: To Hell and Back. (1993) (Thank you Wikipedia). Now this is obviously the most logical place to begin with my Lovecraftian article. In this film H.P. Lovecraft (Jeffrey Combs) gains access to the mysterious Necronomicon. He delves ever deep into its haunting pages as a myriad of ghastly stories play out before his eyes. If you adore Lovecraft then this is a film worthy of your collection. It simply oozes horror. Re-Animator (1985) This is […]

Bloody Shark Films

I enjoy killer-shark films. To be honest, I enjoy anything that pits stupid swimming humans against vicious slaughtering water beasts. It’s just a shame the humans tend to come out on top. Well, one day we’ll have a film in which EVERYONE that goes into the water gets eaten! Until then we’ll simply have to watch some wonderful killer-seafood movies. 47 Meters Down. (2017) Right, so we’ll start with the latest in killer-shark films. Welcome to 47 Meters Down. (Just ignore the Meg still on the trailer. -Ed). In this film, two morons end up trapped inside a shark cage some 47 meters underwater. (They should have just sent them a goodly length of rope.) There they are assaulted by […]

DAGON (Classic Film Review)

 

 “”We shall swim out to that brooding reef in the sea and dive down through black abysses to Cyclopean and many columned Y’ha-nthlei, and in that lair of the Deep Ones we shall dwell amidst wonder and glory for ever.” – H.P. Lovecraft. I adore Lovecraft. Have I told you that already? I probably have. But it is true. I adore Lovecraft. I personally think that he was the best horror/sci-fi short story writer of the 20th century. His work has inspired so many writers, musicians, game makers, and film creators -and will continue to do so for ages to come. Now today we look at one of the most interesting films inspired by this brilliant man. Today we look […]

The Evil Within 2

Right, well this is another game that was announced at E3. Welcome back, Sebastian. Welcome to The Evil Within 2. What we know of The Evil Within 2 is… well… very little to be honest. The game takes place some three years after the first one with Sebastian returning to STEM in order to find his apparently dead daughter. Like the previous game, The Evil Within 2 is set to scare the living daylights out of most people -especially fans of the first game.

72 hours and already into live music

 

 I have now been upon England’s green and asphalt covered land for a little over 72 hours. It’s wonderful to be home. (Dover. South-East England to be exact. -Ed) Before me stands a glorious countryside, magnificent cliffs, and a myriad of historic buildings; and within each of these locales a million adventures await to be lived. It’s a fantastic thing to stand in the centre of a small town knowing that there is a plethora of unique and interesting entertainments available within walking distance. Case in point, on Sunday night -while the sun was still up at 9pm- I indulged in a little sojourn at one of the local pubs. (Local pubs! What a statement! We have no pubs in […]

Divinity: The Immortalist (Album Review)

 

 Once again my bedroom walls are on fire. Well, yes, I did get absolutely ass-holed last night; so much so that I awoke this morning with a police woman’s helmet, and a rubber traffic cone in my bed. But that is neither here nor there. What is there, is the fact that my walls are burning and my speakers are spewing out a barrage of powerful Metal. (Perhaps that is somehow related. -Ed) This is “The Immortalist” the latest offering to the gods of Metal, from Divinity. The songs on this 12 track album are about as Metal as any songs I’ve ever heard. It’s the antitheses of rebellion, chaos and feral disorder. Manhunt Atlas Hallowed Earth D M T […]
