Happy Halloween 2017: Rockers Divulge Their Favorite Horror Films

It’s Halloween and with this post I am giving you a treat that will not promote tooth decay nor lead you to issues with your waistline. In the spirit of my inquiries that featured “Music Resolutions”; I’ve polled a number of Metal and Rock musicians in my world and asked them “What is your favorite Horror movie and why”. So get some popcorn, dim the lights and sit under a cozy blanket as we learn of some awesome talents favorite creepy film. It’s a lengthy list but splitting this one into parts didn’t make sense. Let’s go.

Chris Caffery (Savatage/Trans-Siberian Orchestra): “Halloween”. Because it was the only movie that not only scared me in the theaters it scared me afterwards in real life. In my opinion it’s the best horror film ever made. In the sense of true horror. A real killer. There was no superhuman bs in the first one. Just pure evil.

Gogo Melone (Aeonian Sorrow): From old films was “Dracula”… I really like the atmosphere and as a kid I was a big fan of vampires. The movie that scared my ass off the most and had nightmares for days with, were “The Ring” and “The Exorcism of Emily Rose”…I don’t think I’ll ever see them twice again ??

Jimmy Kunes (Cactus): God there’s so many. “Fearless Vampire Killers”, I know it’s a spoof. But what a film!!!

Elise Ryd (Amaranthe): “The Shining”. Those two kids are the most scary thing I’ve seen. And I don’t like that dude Johnny towards the end. “Here’s Johnny” ? And this is true.. Every time I’m in a hotel with long corridors I expect those kids to show up in the end of the hallway. Haha, that image is haunting me, STILL! It’s Enshrined in my memory.

Archie Kuosmanen (Santa Cruz): Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining because it’s the undisputed heavyweight champion of horror flicks!

The Details: Talk about a co-headlining tour. Luca Turilli’s Rhapsody and Primal Fear united together for the sake of Metalkind and bringing their melodic awesomeness to numerous parts of these United States. Now I have enjoyed the powerhouse known as Primal Fear for quite some time and caught them on a couple of their US Tours over the years but I have yet to see this version of Rhapsody in action. Some fans might not know this but Rhapsody (then Rhapsody Of Fire) split its members and each began live and recording activity. This one finds founding guitarist Luca Turilli at the helm and to my knowledge this will be their first ever full USA tour. The anticipation and excitement about a tour like this one is usually well enough but I am going to up the ante by announce that the bands will be hitting the Stage 48 club in NYC and thanks to the promoters, some of the PiercingMetal readers are going to get to enjoy the show for free. Local support will lead off this show that night if you should feel like arriving early to check it all out. Read more below on how this works.

When and Where: Thursday, April 28th at Stage 48 – 7:30pm (630 West 48th Street NYC)
