“Happy Halloween” 2018: Rockers Divulge Their Favorite Horror Films

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.

“Metal Mike” Chlasiak (Halford, Sebastian Bach, Solo): I liked “Hellraiser” because the main character (Pinhead) looked like the evil brother of The Metal God.

Slayer Announces “Leg Two” For Final North American Tour

It was only back in late January that we helped share the news about the mighty and very legendary Thrash Metal band Slayer who announced that they would be embarking on their final tour before calling it a career. If you missed that first announcement, please click HERE to be up to speed and for shame if you aren’t already aware of this news. Early today, the band announced that by popular demand a second leg of dates will expand upon the domination. Read on below the poster for their statement and the additional dates. I’ll return at the close with some editorial insight.

The Statement:
Literally by popular demand – with more than half the tour dates already either completely sold out or a sell-out imminent – today Slayer announces Leg Two, North America, of its final world tour, set to kick off on Thursday, 7/ 26 at the Bank of New Hampshire Pavilion in Gilford, NH. The tour will travel to 20 cities over about five weeks, culminating at San Jose’s SAP Center on 8/ 26. Lamb of God, Anthrax, Testament and Napalm Death will accompany the band on all dates. The general ticket on sale for most dates begins this Friday, March 9 at 10AM (local). Very limited Slayer onstage + Meet & Greet + exclusive merchandise packages will be available. Log on to www.slayer.net for all ticket and package purchasing information.

A second North American leg for this tour had been considered to take place at some point down the line, but within 48-hours of the initial January 26 ticket on sale date, that all changed.

“We were blown away by the speed of sales for the final run,” said Rick Frank, President of Touring for Live Nation, one of the tour’s promoters. “Thirty-six years later and Slayer is bigger than ever before.”
