Album Review: Cannibal Corpse - "A Skeletal Domain"

Metal, as a genre, shows a great deal of fealty to the parties responsible for its creation. That fealty, undying in its virility, is often rewarded with a recurring stream of new material from the bands being revered. It is a cycle that is unique to the genre – such loyalty to artists in other contemporary genres tends to lead to great fame and fortune, where in metal it is more prone to cause underground acceptance, increased inspiration and a comfortable, if perhaps not incredibly lucrative, living.

Book Vs Television: The Strain S1:E8 Creatures of the Night

Album Review: Edward O'Connell - Vanishing Act

Of all the things that perplex me about the current state of music, maybe the most difficult to fathom is how power-pop, a genre that is about nothing but making catchy music for you to sing along to, became an underground genre. These purveyors of sunny, feel-good music have become vampires to the mainstream, surviving in the shadows that thrive on message boards in the deep recesses of the internet. There was a time when power-pop was huge, as it should have been, but somewhere along the way music fans have apparently decided they don't want their music to be enjoyable. Go figure.

As Above, So Below (REVIEW)

Found footage films live or die by their premise, and "As Above, So Below" gains a lot of goodwill in the early going by drawing the viewer into a seldom visited setting in horror, the catacombs beneath Paris. The film chronicles the underground exploits of a team led by Professor Scarlett Marlowe (Perdita Weeks, "Prowl") and George (Bed Feldman, "Mad Men," "Cloverfield"), a master tinkerer and convenient speaker of dead languages.
