Moscow: Queen Of Sin (Album Review)

 

 There is something wonderful about EP’s. I know that I have said this before, but it is true. EP’s are a great way of getting your music out there without killing yourself making an LP; they are a fantastic way of whetting people’s appetites, titillating their senses, exciting their souls; they are simply an awesome way of spreading the creative word. This is the brilliant EP “Queen Of Sin” by the bloody talented Moscow. Now as this is an EP -and thus it is nothing more than a first course in a banquet you are left waiting for- you would think that the hors d’oeuvres served would be pleasurable, but not too amazing. But you’d be wrong. As EP’s go, […]

Orphan Black (Series Review)

 

 So here we are… at the end of a great series… a series worth watching… a series worth owning… a series full of amazing actors, solid writing, and weird characters -this is Orphan Black. Now for those of you that have not seen or heard of this series let me give you a wee bit of background. This Anglo-American (BBC America) science-fiction series centres around small time thief/con artist named Sarah Manning (Tatiana Maslany) who discovers that she is not alone. No, she’s not discovered aliens. Nor has she discovered ghosts. Instead she discovers that she is one of a myriad of clones all of whom live their own lives across the world, independent of each other. Well, not all […]

Aeraco: Baptized By Fire (Album Review)

 

 Metal! Metal! Metal! Metal! More Metal! (I do hope you’re writing this all down?) There are few things that knock people out of their beds, and awaken the dead, like the explosive sound of Metal. This is “Baptized By Fire” by the brutal Aeraco. The songs on this album are, quite simply put, the epitome of Metal. There’s kick. There’s power. There’s aggression and style on multiple levels. Back With Vengeance. Cum To Rock. Baptized By Fire. Stab In Dim Light. Tequila And Lime. All I know. Withered Rose. In Hell We Trust. In Vain. Bad. Fighting The Fame. Lone Wolf. The Outlaw. Songs such as… Well, let’s be honest here. No one song stands out for me. Instead, each […]

nttx: Of Beauty and Chaos (Album Review)

 

 It has been a few years since we last heard from the EBM/Industrial side of Canada, and I can honestly say that the return of Canadain-Doof-Doof to 925 is a welcome sight. This is “Of Beauty and Chaos“ by the amazing nTTx. The songs on this short album, though few in number, kick like a full-length album. Songs like “DarkMove” and “Prey” and “True” and “Earth” come at you from a thousand directions, with a thousand different flavours. They threaten to overwhelm you, overcome you, destroy you; and yet, they do nothing but inspire you and drive you to frenzied dancing. MoveDark Prey True Earth Falls Beautiful (Rotersand Remix) Eye of the Tiger Now the other two songs “Eye of […]

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 […]

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 […]

Paul Johnson and The About Last Night’s: Give Up The Ghost (Album Review)

 

 There are few things in this world that kick and punch with sounds like American Rock music. It’s personal. It’s powerful. It’s rebellious. This is “Give Up The Ghost” by the amazing Paul Johnson and The About Last Night’s. The songs on this EP pack a kick from start to finish. It’s a wonderful thing to listen to such brilliantly written, constructed and executed music. Underachiever Burn It Down American Story (Adrenaline) Hollywood Missing You (Digital Only Bonus Track) Each and every song on this album whets the appetite. There is a strength on this album that, in many ways, dwarfs the strength of many full-length albums I’ve heard over the years. It’s astonishing. Bottom line “Give Up The Ghost” is […]

Karkaos: Children of The Void (Album Review)

 

 The madness! The madness! Oh, how I adore it. The world is aflame, and hordes of undead Vikings are looting the local mall. It’s Armageddon and WW3 made Metal. This is Karkaos, with their latest offering to the gods of chaos and madness “Children of The Void“. The songs on this 12 track album are pretty much as savage as you’d expect them to be. They kick, scream and flail out in all directions. It’s rather threatening, and more than a little arousing. Babel Skymaster Kolossos Let The Curtain Fall Pale Children Of The Void Rêverie Tyrants Where Mushrooms Grow Lightbearer The Beast Bound By Stars Each and every song on this album is an assault on all the senses; […]
