Stage Fright (2014) (REVIEW)

The slasher sub genre is one that will just not seem to die. It’s not surprising however, since the slasher could be argued to be the foundation to modern horror. “Halloween”, “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre”, “Peeping Tom”, “Psycho”, and “Black Christmas” to name a few of the beginning cuts. The genre has evolved and changed over the years, but just like the killers that lead the films, the genre keeps picking itself up. Series have had to be rebooted and remade to stay modern. Even the “Scream” franchise was created to save the genre from an early grave.

Concert Review - Volbeat, Trivium

In metal circles, Volbeat has become a household name. The band is loaded with metal chops and yet concurrently appeals to genres outside just their home base. The crowds that gather to see the band perform their art range in age and fandom, covering a wide spectrum of musical taste and appreciation. A Volbeat show has practically become an affirming event – patrons are there to see great music and have a great time, in a shockingly well-behaved fashion, which isn’t unwelcome.

Album Review: Super Massive Black Holes - Calculations Of The Ancients

For the last decade or so, one of the paths down which metal has gone involves the fusion of genres that don't, on the surface, seem to go together. It started with Opeth's unique brew of death metal and somber folk, but grew from there to include everything from the death metal meets jazz of Farmakon, to the 'super metal' of Monsterworks, and the kitchen sink approach that typifies bands like Between The Buried And Me. What they all have in common is a desire to do something unique in a space where it seems every good idea has already been explored.
