We had a chance to sit down with King Diamonds only original member, (besides the King himself) guitar player, Andy LaRocque, and discuss the Monster Energy Mayhem Festival 2015 as well as future plans the band has with recording and touring. Thanks for taking the time to sit down with us. So this is King Diamond’s first time on Mayhem Fest. What has it been like? It’s been really good, you know, different because we’re not used to doing this kind of touring thing, you know?

Emotionally relating to, and understanding, the psychotic motivations of manic characters who are purely driven by their feelings of grief and despair can be a harrowing process for many people. But when a film’s story can grippingly and naturally draw out those agonizing emotions, largely in part of the eerie environment of its intensely disturbing main shooting location, the actors can enthrallingly and instinctively showcase those hysterical inspirations. One such entrancing movie that powerfully utilizes its frightening location to its advantage is the action drama ‘Vendetta,’ the latest joint directing effort from twin sisters Jen and Sylvia Soska. In honor of the film’s home release on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital [ Read More ]

Being a mix of hip-hop, punk rock, and psychedelic rock, Kottonmouth Kings have been a tour de force since their inception twenty-one years ago. While I’m unfamiliar with their work, what I have heard of the Kings has been pretty solid.

You can pre-order the album here.
While I’d like to think my father raised me right when it came to music, I learned a year ago that he had failed. A year ago was when I first discovered the beauty that was Iron Maiden, and realized I’d been missing out for twenty eight years of my life on music that was beautiful. Right after hearing “Can I Play With Madness?” I became a superfan of the group, immediately listening to their albums and buying a T-shirt ASAP. The band teased an album release late last year, but those plans were on delay as Bruce Dickinson was diagnosed with cancer. Luckily, he’s better and the Gods of [ Read More ]

You hear a lot about actors doing a lot to take on a role. I had these [ Read More ]

The 2010 Chilean mining disaster made national headlines, and a group of thirty-three miners were stuck in the San Jose mines for more than two months. As such when true stories of survival and triumph happen, Hollywood goes ahead and makes a film about it. Alcon Pictures was up to the task for this film, making a film called The 33 starring Antonio Banderas and directed by Patricia Riggan. The studio has released the one sheet which you can see at the top of the page. Have to say, it’s nice to see Banderas headlining a film again. His career took something of a nose-dive after Ballistic: Ecks Vs. Server was panned and The Legend of [ Read More ]
