Music Review: Grown Below – The Long Now

Album cover: Grown Below - The Long Now

Genre-defining albums have sprinkled metal’s history with those few releases that transcend what’s been done before. Metallica’s Kill ‘Em All taught us metal could be heavy and still be rock and roll, Quiot Riot’s Metal Health ushered in a decade of hair bands, and Nirvana’s Nevermind killed that decade with a single song. More recently, Amorphis gave us Skyforger and showed us that metal didn’t have to be formulaic and boring. Post-metal needs such … Continue reading

Giant-monsters-banner

Whether you are a new comer or an old hat, you gottta give it up for horror’s giant monsters. Maybe it originates from the “Jack and the Bean Stalk” days or simply seeing a gorilla climb one of America’s largest buildings. Who’s to say. For me, it was those crazy Asians and their monster suits stomping over buildings and electric cables. Still till this day we are fascinated with things that appear very large in … Continue reading

Top 10 J-Horror Movies (Japanese Horror Movies)

ju-on-thegrudge-banner

Asian horror films on the most part fall somewhere between “deep to my heart” to recycled nonsense. Though I do enjoy the thrill of weeding thru all the stinkers to find the gems. For anyone new to these, they present a special brand of fear and dread that is far removed from many Western releases. In fact, I’m quite confident in saying that Asian films tend to rule in the ghost and loony categories. Usually … Continue reading

Music Review: Hull – Beyond the Lightless Sky

Hull-beyond-the-lightless-sky

It took weeks to figure out what I liked about Beyond the Lightless Sky. I enjoyed the album from first listen, then played it over and over, enjoying it more each time. But what defines Hull? What makes them unique? They’re certainly talented and excellent songwriters, but there are tons of talented bands who write good songs. That isn’t enough to stand out. It hit me while listening in the car that in a … Continue reading

Anthology Television Part 1

AT1 Montage 3

An anthology television series is a program that presents a different story with a different set of characters in each episode. These normally have different actors each week but some employed a permanent ensemble of actors who would appear in a different drama each week (like Four Star Playhouse). Others would have different actors and stories set in the same ‘shared world’ (like Welcome To Paradox). Many anthology shows would have a … Continue reading

Key Genre Films 1980s

1980s-montage-2

How things have changed. In the forties, for instance, one would find it difficult to name twenty good genre films of the decade but, since the late seventies, Hollywood has learned that their baby-booming audiences could not only handle strong horror and science fiction concepts, they craved them. Filmmakers everywhere went into overdrive. Like television today, there wasn’t a production house around that didn’t have at least one genre project in the making.

Top 10 Films for 2011 | Black Saint List

Drive-2011

It has been a interesting year for horror/sci-fi films this year. In my opinion, it’s been something of a down year for genre films. There have been some really good films released this year but by & large I think the bad ones far outweighed the good ones. I even scrambled to watch “The Orphan Killer” & “The Woman” in the last few days because of all … Continue reading

Music Review: Novembers Doom – Aphotic

Novembers Doom - Aphotic Album Cover

The 2000s should be known as the decade of boring metal. More passionless music poured out of those ten years than any other I can remember. In purging the flamboyancy of the 80s and early 90s, metal bands lost their passion and originality. That’s why I’m so excited about albums like Aphotic. In a subtle direction shift, Novembers Doom adds a dose of creativity to its latest release.

The members of Novembers Doom have … Continue reading
