Dread Central Presents An Epic Pictures Release--Terrifier

For the better part of the last decade or so there has been an abundance of "Horror Movies" that are so overly produced or directed by people that have no idea what they are doing.
We have the same scenarios , which is fine very little changes in regards to settings and horror has been around for centuries.

We here have a standard setting, two young women being stalked by a maniacal clown .......this is where this film kind of turns things on the proverbial head.

We have two young women that are out after a night of drinking, it's Hallowe'en night that is the reason for their dress.
They are too drunk to drive home and plan on getting some food and letting themselves get a little sober before attempting the drive home.
Also in the same neighborhood is 'Art The Clown" who is out for more than trick or treat, he's in for some scares and he's not joking around. The women somewhat tease him and head to a pizzeria --where he follows them, not a big deal right?
He goes in and sits kitty corner from their table and stares-smiles at one point(above) but is so very creepy. This movie pulls out all the stops, it is edge of your seat kind of creepy they really pulled this one off. This is the most impressed I have been in a horror film in a very long time.
Not giving into his stares , it is after all Hallowe'en night so it's probably some joker in a clown outfit trying to get some scares.

She could not be more wrong....this is one of the most maniacal evil characters created in some time for horror. This is something we need more of is some creative energies put back into the horror genre. With all the movies for teens and young adults there is very little originality anymore , when there is we all want more of it. But these days it is so few and far between.
This is a frame from the film but as one of the young women are trying to get out of an abandoned building --he blocks the door like he is standing in the picture. Then he jumps at her, makes for a very uneasy scene that's for sure. But man it felt so good, lol.
There are a few more bump in the night sort of scares but the overall affect of the film is one to be remembered for years to come and I am thankful that I have been given the opportunity to have seen this film.

This is not for the squeamish or for children it is quite intense and brutal in a lot of the film. For those that love horror I cannot recommend it enough. There is a young woman that actually stands up to the monster and gives him a bit of a showdown , knocks him down a peg.

AFM Records Digital Review: Gus G. --Fearless(Available April 20 , 2018)

                                                     GUS G
                                            20 April 2018

The Greek guitar virtuoso, GUS G, might be best known for replacing Zakk Wylde as Ozzy Osbourne's lead guitarist, but GUS now forges his own path with his newest solo venture via the stunning new album, Fearless! It's an extremely varied record, spanning some amazing, killer hard-rock tunes to bombastic shred fests and everything in between. 

On Fearless, Gus joins forces with vocalist/bassist Dennis Ward (PINK CREAM 69, UNISONIC) and drummer Will Hunt (EVANESCENCE).

The title track of this album is what it is really about , this is a guitarist's album so we should have a good number of instrumental songs giving them the opportunity to show us their stuff so to speak.
Gus G. does not disappoint here with this song , some great shredding happening throughout and some great key changes as well.
Here is the first video from the album
Letting Go

Here we have a traditional rock music video but it works for what it is trying to get across and when he hits the solo in the song , pyrotechnic fire shoots from the floor --highlighting the man himself.

Probably my favorite song on the album is "Last of my Kind"
it is a ballad but has a great chorus and the backing vocals work great. The melody and harmonies on this track are fantastic.
Words from it:
"Look in the mirror , there's a madman staring back at me.
Pretending everything was real and not just fantasy"

Not common for what is considered to be a Heavy Metal guitarist to cover a popular song that had heavy rotation on the radio--now gets a HEAVY cover of it, we are talking about:
Dire Straits --Money For Nothing -good cover with the words "that little F" to "that little wuss"

Last year he was replaced by the original guitarist for Ozzy -Zakk Wylde and like a true pro he wrote this on his Facebook page.

"It’s been an honor & a privilege playing by your side since 2009. Nothing but great times & an experience of a lifetime.

To Ozzy & Sharon – thanks for everything, love ya!

To Blasko, Adam & Tommy – been a pleasure rocking with you!

As a fan, it’s great to see Ozzy & Zakk back together. It’s been long overdue.
Last but not least – thanks to all the fans that showed love & support all these years, see you out there soon!

Ozzy rules!"

He also has another instrumental on the album called 
"Thrill of the Chase"

He played a clinic last year that someone taped and some of the songs he played here is "The Quest"

Agonia Records Press Release: SUSPERIA (Ex-Dimmu Borgir/Satyricon Members) Stream New Album 'The Lyricist'

Having only hearing of Susperia and not knowing their style of music I have always associated the name with the 1977 film by Dario Argento--it is a horror film.
The reason for the connection the names is there good combination between horror and Heavy Metal has a good history and rightly so.
Both of the first videos for the album are very dark in music and in the visuals for them as well, making the connection even stronger than some artists.
With this talent on this album it will not be surprising  to see this one do well, I wish them luck.
Look for my full review of the album , coming soon.
Here is the first video from the album:
My Darkest Hour:

Now onto the Press Release:

SUSPERIA stream new album "The Lyricist"
Norway's melodic black/thrash metal outfit SUSPERIA, comprised of former Dimmu Borgir, Satyricon and Old Man's Child members, release advance stream of their new album "The Lyricist", due out on March 16th via Agonia Records. Listen to the band's first new album in nine years at this link:

"The Lyricist" is available for pre-ordering at this location. 

The origins of SUSPERIA can be traced back to 1998 when Tjodalv, then occupying the drum seat with Dimmu Borgir, and long-time friend Cyrus (ex-Satyricon, Old Man's Child) got together to share ideas and write songs. Clearly rooted and seasoned in the Norwegian black metal scene, SUSPERIA elevated its sound into more melodic areas of extreme metal, embracing and exploring a variety of musical avenues with ease.

On "The Lyricist", SUSPERIA has gone back to its black origin in many ways, one of which is a more grimmer expression. The characteristic melodic twist the band is known for is still present, and an additional layer of variety has been added thanks to new vocalist, Bernt 'Dagon' Fjellestad (whose stage debut with the band was made at last year's 70000 Tons Of Metal Festival). From SUSPERIA's pragmatic point of view, the new album is a "good old-fashioned kick in the head, both old and new fans should find enjoyable".

"The Lyricist" was recorded at three different studios in Norway between February 2015 and May 2016. The album was later mixed and mastered at Strand Studio (Chrome Division, The Wretched End, In Vain) by Marius Strand. Cover design and artwork was prepared by Vincent Fouquet. New band photos were shot by Espen Bakken.

2. Heretic
3. The Lyricist
4. My Darkest Moment

Vancouver Short Film Festival Interviews with Mayumi Yoshida & Lawrence Le Lam

When I arrived at the Vancouver Short Film Festival on Sat January 27,  I was happy to see so many people I had met in previous years before and meeting some new ones as well.
I had some scheduled interviews planned and I was able to meet with both of them , so without going any further we shall proceed with those.

First off I got to meet with and interview Mayumi Yoshida, who had her short film "Akashi" show the previous evening. 
She told me about the film , the history of it and future showings of the film and upcoming projects as well.
Below is the interview:

Her film would later that evening go on to win two of the bigger awards of the night, see below.

Shortly after my interview with her I met with Lawrence Le Lam where we discussed his film "Cypher" which was the film that was closing out the night. Lawrence had one in previous years at the same festival for his short "The Blue Jet" we discuss both  of the films and what he is working on now and also future projects.

Also in a lucky evening for both of the people that I interviewed his film "Cypher" would go on to win most of the major awards as well for the night.

Congratulations to all of the crew members and their wins for the evening.
