George Romero's Empire of the Dead

Don’t get me wrong. I’m a Romero fan. I thought “Night of the Living Dead” was a game changer for horror. I think “Dawn of the Dead” was pretty great for its social message and its glimpse of the turn of life at the end of the world. ”Day of the Dead” hinted at the great post-zombie world, but it was a tiny glimpse. Fun thought.

That Girl From "Game Of Thrones" Is In a Movie About Her Honeymoon called "Honeymoon"

You probably know Rose Leslie as the scary ass woman who killed a bunch of people on "Game of Thrones". I mean she killed them in the actual show, not like people on the set. I'm 99% sure she'd be in jail or on the run if she was an actual murderer.

Album Review: Fozzy - Do You Wanna Start A War

I've had a love/hate relationship with Fozzy, ever since they ditched the cover band gimmick and started writing their own material. With each passing album, I've seen a band that knows how to write some solid melodic rock/metal, but can't keep their focus all the way through. “All The Remains” had some great tracks, but ventured off into unnecessary rap metal. They then ventured off into unnecessary prog, and more beat-driven music, all of which brought down the solid songs that made up the majority of the records.

Album Review: Blues Pills - Blues Pills

When I reviewed Blues Pills' “Devil Man” EP last year, I came away from it thinking that they were a rock band that needed to rock less. That sounds odd, but it was their softer songs that floored me, that made me take notice that they were a band with massive potential. There was something special in that sound, something that wasn't captured by their heavier numbers. I feared that they were going to insist on proving their rock credentials, thereby holding themselves back from greatness. For once in my life, I'm happy to say I was wrong.

Album Review: John Garcia - "John Garcia"

At the risk of sounding like a press release, John Garcia has managed to carve himself out a unique niche in the music world solely by being among the progenitors of his chosen style. Beginning with Kyuss and continuing through Slo Burn and then with Vista Chino, Garcia is a prominent face on the Mount Rushmore of desert music, whether it be called desert rock or desert metal.
