Iced Earth’s Latest Release Incorruptible Is A Blistering, Soul Shaking Listening Experience That Holds Nothing Back

Iced Earth’s Latest Release Incorruptible Is A Blistering, Soul Shaking Listening Experience That Holds Nothing Back

Set, we’ve missed you. Artwork by David Newman-Stump and Roy Young Jon and company have released an epic album that is everything a metal head could ever want in a release. From the opening track “Great Heathen Army,” to the closing piece “Clear The Way,” each song is a living entity reflecting pain, tragedy, love, and unity conveyed through tracks that stay with you long after the last note fades off of track 10. The riffs are brutal yet melodic, […]

Bad Frank Is A Must See Movie For Those Who Like Good Guys Who Go Very, Very Bad

Bad Frank Is A Must See Movie For Those Who Like Good Guys Who Go Very, Very Bad

        “A man can only hold so much inside…”   Bad Frank stars Kevin Interdonato as Frank Pierce, your average Italian Joe with a nice house in the suburbs, gorgeous wife, a disturbing past and medically repressed anger issues (which makes him “not average” at this point..) who finds himself in a precarious position with an old friend during a drug deal that goes way south. When push comes to shove (and the pharmacy won’t refill your […]

Beacon Point A Sci-Fi Horror Tale Of Lies, Secrets, and Bloody, Alien Shenanigans

There’s a reason the woods are scary…and maybe a little complicated but definitely scary.

The trouble begins when local mountain tour guide and survival badass Drake Jacobs accidentally kills his supervisor during an argument at the resort he’s employed with after it’s been discovered that Drake is […]

Hockey’s Most Misunderstood Position Finally Has Its Day In Acclaimed Documentary Ice Guardians

Team Enforcer: game bully or team protector? Depends on who you ask, and it’s about time the players got to tell their side of the story.

Fighting is in its roots,  in its blood,  and is fully supported by both fans and players the world over. So why has it become such a thorn in the profession’s side as of late? According […]

Taste The Sadness By Aussie Legend SPOD Is An Instant Classic

This guy…image via Rice Is Nice Records Middle Age hasn’t sounded this good in a long time. SPOD has broken his creation hiatus to create an album of great depth using electronica and pop music to convey the struggles of arriving to that weird area in all of our lives where we all swear we’d never get to, but we all do, usually without even noticing. You want to hang out with friends, you want to hang out at the pub, […]

“No one is above the law, and no one is below it”  Theodore Roosevelt certainly had a way with words. Season two finds the Ferrell clan in utter turmoil. G’Winveer is granted the title of “Bren-in” or new leader of the clan in light of Big Foster’s absence, and finds herself struggling to lead with the confidence needed in the wake of the ever growing conflict between the “losties” (locals) and the Ferrells. From the other side of the mountain […]
