Xtro – Harry Bromley Davenport (Second Sight)

I first heard about Xtro in slightly odd circumstances as my dad had shares in a company that had some involvement in its production. I saw some photos in a trade publication he was sent and boy do I wish… Continue Reading →

eXistenZ – David Cronenberg (101 Films)

A true auteur and one of the great visionary directors of our time, David Cronenberg’s career has been incredibly interesting to say the least. Although his films are really varied in some ways, as we will discover here they are… Continue Reading →

Hollywood Burns – Invaders (Blood Music)

“Burn Hollywood burn, taking down Tinseltown Burn Hollywood burn, burn down to the ground” a total banger of a song and just reading those words it should be going round in your head. However this is not the work of… Continue Reading →

Pestilence – Hadeon (Hammerheart)

What makes a legendary band? Is it enough to be ahead of your time? Or is it simply about writing great music? So many questions to answer all with an array of deep answers. To me a legendary band is… Continue Reading →

Alien 2: On Earth – Ciro Ippolito (88 Films)

I have picked up nearly all of 88 Films Italian Collection imprint and been pretty pleased with most of them. It’s been a good chance to upgrade a fair few import DVD’s to hi-def Blu-ray transfers and on the whole… Continue Reading →

Iron Savior – Titancraft (AFM)

Well, Iron Savior have been exposed to a level of criticism that many of the other bands I have reviewed haven’t experienced. See, I’ve been listening to this at home, whereas many of the other albums I listen to bounce… Continue Reading →

Wormed – Krighsu (Season of Mist)

This is a band who have played live alongside Goratory and Vomit Remnants. To be honest that tells me more than being told that their sci-fi technical death metal style is the framework for their “atmospheric” songs. The songs could… Continue Reading →
