With the upcoming release of "The Town that Dreaded Sundown," the movie industry will have officially finished its 15 year performance art project of rebooting every horror movie made between 1976 and 1987.

Day 21 of the 31 Days of Horror have arrived, and Casey has decided it's time for a bit of a change up. Are you a fan of horror video games? Come see what Casey's got to play for October.

Metalcore has always been a bit of a shotgun wedding. There was no reason that screamed verses and cleanly sung choruses were supposed to be put together, not to mention becoming the blueprint for an entire genre of music. Very few of the metalcore bands have ever been able to make a compelling case for why their music isn't the musical equivalent of the TV show “Chopped”, with random ingredients thrown together for the sake of seeing what could be made of them.

I became familiar with the idea of the horror genre having a bit of a community built around it at an early age.  I'm certain that this existed in other fandoms back in the early 80's as well, but for me, it was certainly there in the horror community.  Over time, some friends have come and gone and the rituals have changed, but I still always find myself drawn to like minded people.  It just happens, kind of like radar.  

Buzz Osborne is nothing if not a music survivalist.  The man is just about the only synonym for The Melvins, the band he has maintained for the better part of thirty years.  For a man and band that came to fame on the consistent recommendation of Kurt Cobain some twenty years ago, King Buzzo has done an excellent job of turning himself into a cottage industry.  He’s worked with the best musician, been part of innumerable projects and produced more material in that time that nearly all of his contemporaries.  The ongoing legacy of The Melvins continues with the band’s new

Casey has a video game addiction that is totally not healthy for someone his age. Regardless, he's decided to make some videos of some of his favorites to share with you all!

If we can all agree that Black Sabbath was the first true heavy metal band then heavy metal as a genre has only been around for slightly more than 40 years. And, if we use the traditional definition of a "generation" as being a 20 year period, then we are nearly a quarter of the way through the third generation of heavy metal music.

Over the years, my Dad and I watched many movies , but our adventures led further than those limited walls.  Growing up, I tended towards pockets of obsession where I would think comic books were the best option for story telling available.  Other times it was the paperback or the movie.  It was my dad that taught me that a good story was a good story, despite it’s format and that was all that mattered.

The story of Exodus is becoming nearly as lengthy and weighty as the biblical book of the same name.  Shoot, with the return of Steve ‘Zetro’ Souza to the ranks, there’s even a New Testament comparison, which is the obvious parallel to the parable of the prodigal son.  However, the more things change the more they stay the same, and Exodus remains forever an integral piece of the fabric of American thrash, existing as both part of its living past and revitalized present.

A couple days ago Mark IMed me and said, "Do you still want to write for the site?". I'm honestly not sure if he was saying it in a "Hey do you want to write for the site? You're pretty good and you should get back into it" or a "What exactly do you think you provide for this world? Deadbeat..." sort of way. Either way, I felt guilty so I've decided to start writing the news again... once a week... for at least the next 3 weeks. Enjoy.
