Have You Ever Heard This Tune From ROBOCOP: THE MUSICAL?

This past weekend, I was fortunate enough to catch a screening of Paul Verhoeven’s original 1987 masterpiece ROBOCOP on the big screen. It’s untouchable. And it is a milestone for ’80s cinema. And apparently, unbeknownst to me, it once inspired a musical number? This dates way back to 2010 and features music, lyrics and video […]

NSFW: Gory New Music Video For BODY COUNT’s “Here I Go Again”

There’s a new album out by the band BODY COUNT, and it’s just as relevant and fresh as ever. It’s the kind of angry metal album we need right about now. We spoke with frontman Ice-T about it a few weeks back, and shared the first pair of singles here. But today, Century Media Records […]

Lost on VHS: MAKING MICHAEL JACKSON’S THRILLER

I have a confession to make: When I was a kid, I was a huge Michael Jackson fan — so much so that I took a little heat from it from other kids. Despite this, I was scared to death of the THRILLER music video. I grew up in a time when my Dad would […]

Listen To The Creepy, Atmospheric Score For THE BLACKCOAT’S DAUGHTER!

It’s been a few years now since I saw Oz Perkins’ directorial debut under the title of FEBRUARY at Beyond Fest 2015, but the film has haunted me ever since. Now known as THE BLACKCOAT’S DAUGHTER, the flick finally was released here in the United States earlier this summer. You can find it on VOD, […]

Watch This Guy Rock The Hell Out Of IRON MAIDEN’s “The Trooper” On Banjo!

Seriously, I love the insane genius of musician Rob Scallon. We’ve shared a few of his previous videos before and they’re all pretty unique. Sure, you remember when he rocked the hell out of Megadeth’s “Holy Wars” on a shovel. Or how he covered Metallica’s “For Whom The Bell Tolls” with bells. Or the epic banjo […]

New Episode Of RATED ART Focuses On The Work Of Graham Humphreys!

A few months back, we shared the first episode of the new online series RATED ART: Scenes Of A Graphic Nature – the brainchild of Scott Johannsson, the former co-host of soundtrack podcast The Damn Fine Cast and one of the people behind the record label Ondes Positives. That first episode set its sights on the great Gary […]

But if you’re a ravenous podcast consumer, you can whittle down the available episodes in no time at all. Then it’s time to dive deeper into the […]

Listen To This Awesome Simulakrum Lab Remix from Dario Argento’s OPERA Soundtrack!

With the vinyl resurgence of the last few years, it’s been great to get some of the now-classic horror scores in LP format. One of the greatest marriages of filmmaker and group is, of course, Dario Argento and GOBLIN. The fine fiends at Rustblade Records have just reissued Claudio Simonetti’s beautiful compositions for Argento’s 1987 […]

Dance With The Dead Remixes Metallica’s “Master Of Puppets!”

It’s Friday, which means it’s time to groove right into the weekend with a rockin’ remix! Lately, I’ve been enjoying the hell out of the stuff by Dance With The Dead. We’ve already shared their killer remixes of John Carpenter’s ASSAULT ON PRECINCT 13 main theme. And then, last week, we listened to their reworking […]

Quintessential Vinyl: The Howard Shore Scores for David Croneberg

One of the advantages of being a writer and getting the opportunity to work from home, primarily, is that I have access to my entire record collection. For me, there’s nothing more comforting or soothing than writing while the scores to some of my favorite films spin in the background. And with the vinyl craze on […]

A Piercing Scream! Five Terrifying King Diamond Albums for the Uninitiated

I had the greatest Halloween night in 2014, at The Wiltern in Los Angeles, bearing witness to an event I’d feared I would never see again.  King Diamond, the ghoulish metal demon who has fronted his own eponymous act for over three decades, was playing his first SoCal date in almost a decade after suffering […]
