Ten Best Horror Movie Theme Songs

Keeping the lists going, here’s one for the “Ten Best Horror Movie Theme Songs.”  Now what makes this list different, is that to make this version of the list, they all had to be songs written SPECIFICALLY for the movies they appear in.  There are entire soundtracks – especially for films from the Eighties – where record companies worked in tandem with studios and filmmakers, to break new musical artists by having them...

Top 10 HORROR SOUNDTRACKS

Top Ten lists are the most subjective effing things in the horror universe; this we know. And with the favorite holiday of ‘monster kids’ of all ages right around the corner, there will be PLENTY of these lists to bitch, debate and palaver about. The main rule I set for myself coming up with this one, was that I could combine favorites with those that might be a little more obscure, or that get just a little less love than “the usual...

Metal Monday #10 (Rigor Mortis aka Wizards of Gore)

Not to be confused with the other Rigor Mortis, who later became Immolation, this is a thrash band with definite horror movie roots. Most of their songs, albums, artwork, and even live shows deal directly with the world of classic horror films. They even focus mostly on the eighties and nineties, which, of course, are two of my favorite eras. This band is now working under a new name, avoiding controversy and bad memories of ta past...

Metal Monday #9 (Goatwhore)

This right here is one of my favorite bands of all time. They are the perfect balance between black metal and death metal, with some thrash thrown in for good measure. Their speed, anti-Christian, and ultra violent lyrics are pretty awesome. It is much of the vocal work, however, that truly leaves a memorable impression on the listener. It has the perfect tone and right amount of growling for many types of metal fans. They are a band...

Metal Monday #8 (Pig Destroyer)

Pig Destroyer is a blazingly fast Grindcore band that has been around since 1997. They are known for brutal and violent lyrics, along with a flare for the disturbing. Prowler in the Yard is my favorite album from Pig Destroyer. Aside from the totally awesome artwork, it also plays out like an insanely violent love story. From the obsessive intro track to the last violent second, you will no doubt appreciate the idea of a concept album...

Metal Monday #7 (Carcass)

Carcass is an in-your-face-brutal-as-hell death metal band, whose influence has been felt in the metal industry for years. After starting out as a punk band, they eventually became major forces in the origination of Grindcore and Goregrind music. While many classic metal fans are not fans of the numerous “____-core” sub-genres, I can find a place in my heart for all of them. It is very similar to the genre snobs in the...

Metal (Music) Monday #6: Behemoth

Behemoth is a Polish, Black Metal, band that has been going strong since 1991. They deal with lyrical themes that dive deep into the darkest reaches of Satanism and Paganism. They are currently on Nuclear Blast Records, churning out fast and frightening music, sure to offend the weakest of souls. I personally love this band. I was so happy when The Satanist came out in 2014, because I had pretty much forgotten all about them. I used...

Metal (Music) Monday #5: The Music Videos of Adam Mason

Adam Mason directs films and music videos. He has directed tons of music videos spanning numerous genres. From The Verve to Cradle of Filth, Mason has worked with tons of awesome artists. As we cover all of his feature length films for the sites retrospective, it is imperative that we at least talk about this as well. In my trilogy of film reviews over the past week, I talked about the fact that we are missing out on a true talent...

Metal (Music) Monday #4: The Big Four on Blu-Ray

Six years ago, four bands that were already 26 years past their prime, released some live concert footage from the Sonisphere Festival in Bulgaria. While I like the fact that they are more respectful to my beloved metal music in Europe, I was not entirely impressed with this release. Due to the drama surrounding these bands and their beginnings, it is no surprise that it took them years to appear in the same place. Did we have to wait...
