PiercingMetal Thoughts: Historically speaking, I’ve only ever seen September Mourning before so the other acts are brand new to me should I end up going. The closest show for me is the one at Dingbatz and that makes me miss The Studio at Webster Hall a whole lot more since shows like this one would be regular offerings at that and the also shuttered Marlin Room that were a part of the still being rebuilt Webster Hall. Those rooms are gone for good and who knows what will be booked at the new extravagant place but I digress. I know that September will be looking for new souls to collect and by that time, her comic book graphic novel will be available so you’ll wanna get a copy of that one. March is still far away from my planning agenda but I hope to get there and learn about more bands while enjoying one that I know reasonably well. What do you think? Chime in down below.
Last year, I had asked what the very favorite Horror films might be among a wide assortment of the musicians that I had met over the last few years while covering shows and special events. The fun disclosures can be reviewed HERE for those who are new to our offerings and might have missed that when it first ran. Yesterday, I decided to do it again with some of the people that I didn’t get around to that last time and while there are only a few, its still fun to find out what spooks some of our talented friends. Let’s get down to business in finding out what some of Hard Rock and Metal’s best and brightest find to be their favorite and scariest films and what makes this be the case. Scroll down…..if…you…dare……Bwahahahaha!!!!
Margarita Monet (Edge Of Paradise): What i love about Horror films is that they are so much fun to watch with with friends, I wouldn’t watch them alone, it’s way more fun to be terrified together. I love the classics like the “A Nightmare On Elm Street”. But for my favorite, I would have to go with “The Ring”, and not just because the movie was so great, it had all the right bone chilling elements, but watching it with my friends in middle school and acting out as the creepy girl coming out of the TV for weeks later, just brings really fun memories about those days, and maybe we’ll give “The Ring 2” a chance.
It’s as hot as the dark regions of the Netherworld and that makes it the optimum time to announce the return to the live stage of September Mourning who will be embarking on their “Summer Soul Collection” tour with support from our friends in Kaleido. I’ve culled the bands brief Facebook notice about it with the dates and will be closing out with some editorial. Let’s go.
Children of Fate, we are excited to announce our Summer Soul Collections with support from Kaleido and Charcoal Tongue! Tell us where your soul will be collected!
Kaleido’s Christina Chriss adds: “I’m really looking forward to Kaleido joining the 2018 Summer Soul Collection tour. It’s a great lineup of bands! We’ve been working on new music for a while so I’m very excited to be returning to so many cities we have played before with new songs! Also really stoked to be playing some cities we’ve never played before!” Continue reading September Mourning Announces “Summer Soul Collection” Tour→
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.
