Administering the Death Penalty - A Conversation With Gaz Jennings

It’s been a long career for Garry ‘Gaz’ Jennings, most famously of Cathedral.  Now he comes back to the fore with Death Penalty, joining forces with pieces from Serpentcult to make a new, groovy throwback metal experience.  Jennings lives on in testament to the axiom that it’s never too late to start a new project, bringing his unique talent for riff crafting to a new adventure.  He took some time to sit down with us and answer a few questions about what it’s like to begin again.

Album Review: In Flames - Siren Charms

If there is a band that is a better example of the dangers that come with artistic evolution in the world of metal, I don't know of them.  In Flames has, over the course of their career, inspired more venomous rage amongst their fans than anyone this side of Metallica.  After pioneering melodic death metal with their early releases, they did the natural thing and changed course as they got older.  At first they dipped their toe into the sounds of nu metal, but quickly moved on to a mix of modern rock and sinewy guitar riffs that was more befitting a band of their age.

Book Vs Television: The Strain S1:E10 The Loved Ones

Well for anyone who read the books, Episode 10, “The Loved Ones,” finally delivers a bit of what we had been anxiously expecting. Kelly transforms into a vamp! Just a bit of a heads up, if it’s not obvious – Kelly being a vampire will be a major plot point throughout the series.

"The Houses October Built" Is For Those Of Us Who Like Haunted Houses But Hate People

Halloween time is rappidly approaching my friends and you know what that means. That's right... Art school drop outs working at your local hounted house attraction. I used to go to a real gem in Upstate NY that would actually give you a golf cart to ride around on the side of a moutain while people ran out of the woods screaming at you. No joke the guy who put us in the cart actually said, "Don't turn left because you'll fall off the side".

All Cheerleaders Die (REVIEW)

"All Cheerleaders Must Die" is an odd film, made even more odd when you consider it came from Lucky Mckee, the same guy whose twisted mind created the cult classic "May" almost a decade ago.  Where the latter was a dark, sensitive, emotional look at a loner trying to survive without anyone to love her, "Cheerleaders" is a slick, vapid, sexed up slasher/monster movie seemingly straight out of the 80's.  Having not checked in on Mckee's career much over the last few years, I'm honestly not quite sure what to make of this sudden turn of events
