The Almost's Favorite Monsters

Fresh from the release of their latest album "Monster Monster," Dusty Redmon from the Almost took a minute to talk about his ten favorite monsters, movie or otherwise. Absolute bonus points for bringing up an iconic moment in "Monster Squad." Take it away, Dusty!

Five Finger Death Punch Talks Horror

Welcome aboard to a whole new thing I'm starting here at BGH. With grateful assistance from a cast of thousands (or like, a dozen, but whatever,) we're reaching out to heavy metal bands, and allowing them their chance to talk about their favorite horror films, now and forever. We know we love horror. And we know you love horror. But it's time to let the metalheads have their say about the horror they love. They did it just for us, which means you'll only see it HERE, at Bloody Good Horror. My appreciation goes out to the donor of today's list, and every list after.

Heavy Metal News Updates!

- For those who haven't heard, some very concerning news in heavy metal last week, as it was confirmed that Ronnie James Dio has been diagnosed with stomach cancer. No solid word on a prognosis, but the disease was thankfully caught in its early stages. Also, only Dio (or his wife) could release a statement containing the words "slay" and "dragon" and be taken seriously.

Them Crooked Vultures - Album Review

The eponymous album released to much fanfare by Them Crooked Vultures does not rewrite the encyclopedia of rock and roll. It was never meant to. The album is an exhibition of the base elements of rock, blended with a style unique to the performers involved. There are a lot of reviewers and music oriented persons who are listening to Them Crooked Vultures expecting the next evolutionary step of head-banger rock.

The Product - "Break the Silence" Review

The Product is an independent band trying to make themselves distinct from the cacophony of endless digestible post-punk influenced rock. It’s a difficult road to walk on, and a long path of hard work lay ahead of them. Still their EP “Break the Silence” shows glimmers of promise toward becoming something more than generic radio filler.

Five Finger Death Punch - "War is the Answer" Review

The first and most important thing about Five Finger Death Punch's album "War is the Answer" is that it is steadfastly honest. There is no dense allegory, no convoluted metaphor, nothing that makes the listener strain to understand the album's intent. This is pure, unadulterated American heavy metal, with no sidebars, no apologies and no layers. This is the album's most redeemable quality and its strongest cornerstone.

Metallica - Concert Review

It's not every day you get to see a legend. Metallica is a singularly polarizing force among the metal community, but their name is ubiquitous. They are synonymous with metal. Their legacy precedes them, and they can and have played everywhere in the world. Metallica had come to my hometown. I had to be there. I bought tickets for this concert seven months ago, on a blustery and bitter April morning. That's the kind of atmosphere Metallica brings to the table.

Slayer - "World Painted Blood" Review

From 1983 to 1985, the new wave of American thrash kicked off with an explosion of albums. Leading the way were four singular pieces that would dictate the pace for years to come. Metallica's "Kill 'em All," Megadeth's "Killing is My Business...and Business is Good!" Anthrax's "Fistful of Metal," and Slayer's "Show No Mercy."

The Almost - "Monster Monster" Review

The Almost’s new album, “Monster Monster” doesn’t offer me a lot musically, but I like the idea.

Hollywood Undead, Chuck Biscuits, and more!

- Say what you will about Hollywood Undead, but they have a nonstop and peerless marketing machine. That said, the band is going all out, pushing the presale for their upcoming CD/DVD "Desperate Measures" before going on tour with Atreyu in just a couple short weeks. The release is slated to contain six live tracks, six studio tracks, and sixty minutes of unedited band video. "Desperate Measures" goes out the door November 10th.
