THIEF.

 

 “Felix, always helpful, also said that the catacombs are supposed to be haunted. Think I’ll go make some inquiries about where a ‘heretic’ like me can get some holy water. Always go prepared….” -Thief: Dark Project. Today is the day that the new Thief video-game is being released; and I must say I’m very excited.

Octodad: The Dadliest Catch, Your Life is Now Complete

 

 “What if you were stuck trying to drive your own body?” Games can be classified into many genres, but now I present what might possibly be gaming’s first slapstick comedy: Octodad: The Dadliest Catch! “Blub blub blub” -Octodad. Developed by a group of students from DePaul University,Octodad started as a free game in 2010 and many of the people involved then became part of Young Horses Inc – which developed Octodad: Dadliest Catch! via Kickstarter funding. The premise of the game is simple enough: you are an octopus living secretly amongst humanity. Your (initially unknown) mission requires that you go through the day to day rigmarole of life as a human – undertaking tasks such as making a cup of […]

IIOIOIOII SUN REVIEW.

 

 American based Electro artist Christopher Gurney delivers a Synthpop album full of nostalgia… and a fresh, modern feel. Rising Sky the opening track sets the tempo for whats expected, soft synths and dreamlike vocals make this song a beautiful opener. Track 2 Weapon is very catchy synthpop with a decent dance tempo, beeps and glitches dominate here reminds me of a eutopian world aiming for a state in which everything is perfect; idealistic. the vocal style differs in somde parts of he song which keeps the listener focused into the song as the tale wonders. Stardust is a beautifully written song, the use of soft synths and melodies transcends you (insert happy place) Do You Know is a much darker […]

Eisdrive Hours of Steel EP Review

 

 This is not pretty listening… at all. This is as Industrial as hell. From Montclair, New Jersey (East Coast of the United States) comes Eisdrive; and their new four-track EP “Hours of Steel.” A Clockwork of dark and gritty… edgy sounds, uneasy listening, Eisdrive deliver an apocalyptic type of industrial which is akin to great acts like Front Line Assembly and early Leaether Strip.… but in no way copies the sound. Official Facebook Page.   Hours of Steel is the soundtrack to your existence in urban decay.

TAMLA KAHN.

 

 Today we speak to an up and coming South African three-piece rock outfit Tamla Kahn. Now they have an interesting story, coming from a small Limpopo town and relocating to Gauteng to keep up with demand to see them play. What’s the history of Tamla Kahn and origin of your name? John joined the band on 6 February, 2010 and we consider this our official birthday. Before he joined, the band had gone through several working titles, but it was everyone’s decision in the end to call the band Tamla Kahn –Tamla’s full name being Tamla Kahn McMahon– not only because Tamla had started the band, but also because it is original and unique, and we didn’t just want a […]

K-BEREIT!

 

 LESSON ONE. Industrial with glamour -positive sounds and negative beats. That’s what you can expect from France’s legendary K-Beriet.  START RUNNING. History of your project? I met them at a private event in Belgium in 2011. They played 4 songs of their new album, and I really liked it. We spent the whole night together, and we had a lot of fun. We used Facebook to talk everyday, and they sent me songs ans stuff to have new opinions about their music. Dominique was already in his new concept, with the mask stuff and the whole visual part.

  The Eschatrilogy: Book of the Dead. (2012.) Another Friday, another interview. Today we speak to British Actor, Writer, Director and Producer, Dan Smyth. Smyth has worked on numerous productions in various roles and positions. Kun. (2012.) When did you first know you wanted to become an actor? What inspired you, and what continues to inspire you?

I studied interactive design at University after finishing my A Levels (in four subjects that really had nothing to do with film!), and it was that course that let me try out film […]
