It's Jason Voorhees! BGH Mashes up Friday the 13th and Dubstep


Interview

5 Questions With See No Evil 2's Lee Majdoub

Orange Goblin have toiled in the metal circuit for a long time, longer than most suspect. It’s coming up on twenty years since their debut under the name “Our Haunted Kingdom” on a split EP with Electric Wizard in 1996. In that time, singer Ben Ward, a larger than life figure who was once described on these pages as a combination of Ozzy Osbourne and Al Snow, has captained his band, which has much the same lineup as ever, through the dark corners of metal’s underground and established a solid, respected career.

Casey's back to the blogging desk, ready to take on 31 Days of Horror for the month of October! Are you ready to see where the journey takes him?

It's time to play the music! It's time to light the lights! It's time to...pass out in the corner and not look at a computer screen for a few months.

Developer malaise aside, I'm stoked to finally say that the Blood Good Horror revamp/remake/redesign is live! Here are a few things that you should be looking for right away.

Imagine my surprise when I saw an album from a band called Electric Wizard in my inbox. I've been a Wizard for many years so I couldn't wait to hear what the electric version sounded like. As it turns out, Electric Wizard plays a style of music referred to as "doom metal" and hails from Dorset, England where all the best doom and dreariness comes from.

For those of you keeping score at home, "doom metal" as a genre is strongly influenced by the great Black Sabbath and tends to be, shall we say, a bit gloomy.  

The folks over at Bad Lip Reading are poking fun at the Walking Dead once again, which is pretty great.  

Paul Allender has long been a prominent name in metal, and equally so a person who refuses to be nailed down.  Allender came to his greatest game as the on-again-off-again (and currently off-again,) guitarist for Cradle of Filth, but has also extended fingers into a variety of other projects, up to and including painting and collections of art.  After moving to the United States in 2012, Allender is following his fancy to a new project, flying under the banner White Empress.  

Austrailian horror film "The Babdook" has been creating scores of gushing fans after screenings across the states. Appearences at The Stanley Film Festival and Sundance showed an appreciation for the film's genuine craft and generic roots. A few days ago Fantastic Fest showed the flick a substantial amount of love bestowing filmmaker Jennifer Kent with Best Horror Feature and Best Horror Screenplay awards.

Frequent listeners of the show often hear us muse on "spooky school," our favorite dead-horse inside joke that only makes sense to a handful of people. For those of you that just can't seem to get on Joe's level of imagination, the folks from the Chicago band Common Shiner have scared up this brilliant music video that re-casts all of your favorite horror villians as high school students.

 

Well here we are again, having patiently waited all week for an episode that would finally spring the series into action and once again let down.
