Album Review: Triptykon - "Melana Chasmata"

Triptykon’s debut full-length record from 2010 “Eparistera Daimones,” was a confused affair, even though it was greeted with unqualified praise from the reviewing universe. It lacked direction, rambled on in random progressions, and never established a musical purpose beyond trying to cram as much force-fed anguish into the product as possible.

Horror Icon Mini-Marathon: JOE DANTE

Making horror is challenging; making comedy is difficult. Making horror-comedy is an unenviable task.

While the writing has slowed down over the past few years, I apparently still love the sound of my own voice, so the podcasting has still been going hot and heavy.

Tonight We Tribute Tonight - "This is Spinal Tap" Final

A tribute project of two people does not a true tribute make. Particularly as it relates to "This is Spinal Tap," the only true measure of the film's success is the critique of its peers. To that end, as with every tribute we do, Chris and I step aside to make room for the opinions of those who make the music we all love. Before we begin, allow me to take a moment to thank all the musicians listed below, and all the promotional and label reps who helped gather these anecdotes. As ever, our tribute project is only a success because of the legwork they do to make it come together.
