Cradle Of Filth - Hammer Of The Witches - promo album cover pic - 2015 - #0607COFDFMO

CRADLE OF FILTH‘s latest album, Hammer Of The Witches, was brought to fruition in Britain’s Witch County, in darkest rural Suffolk at the reputedly haunted Grindstone Studios. The album’s title is named after the “Malleus Maleficarum,” a medieval document of guidelines regarding the persecution and torture of witches – only CRADLE OF FILTH‘s title version is more retributory: It’s the Hammer Of The Witches; the hammer is in the witches’ hands and it’s payback time.

CRADLE OF FILTH have cast a commanding and macabre shadow across the metal scene for nearly a quarter of a century. Armed with their trademark, cross-pollinated assault that taps into myriad strands of sonic extremity and morbid opulence, they have steadily conquered the entire world, unleashing a malevolent slew of classic albums along the way. From the raw and rambunctious savagery of their 1994 debut The Principle Of Evil Made Flesh to the wickedly monstrous, technicolor bombast of 2012’s The Manticore & Other Horrors, the CRADLE ethos and aesthetic have had a huge impact on the evolution of Metal, the band’s insatiable appetite for performing live and frontman Dani Filth‘s unerring charisma and sense of occasion ensuring that they have established a powerful and enduring connection with Hell-bound acolytes everywhere.

Possession - promo movie poster - 1983 - #MO6633MNSS

Stargate - promo movie poster pic - #MOSSNM9940337OT

On October 28th, 1994 – The Science-Fiction film STARGATE was released to wide-screen theaters in the USA. This film stars the legendary Kurt Russell and James Spader. I absolutely love this movie! I recommend STARGATE tremendously! This movie is not difficult to find; I am now in the mood to watch it again!

If you are addicted to the Ancient Aliens series that is currently airing on the History Channel, you’ll fall head over heals for STARGATE! By the way, I once met James Spader at a wedding I attended in Long Island, New York. This chance encounter took place back in the 90’s. Pretty cool, huh?

Saw II - promo movie poster pic - #MO77744993300

On October 28th, 2005 – The super gory and horrific SAW II was released to wide-screen theaters in the USA, via Lions Gate Films. SAW II was directed by the great Darren Bousman.

Born Of Osiris - Soul Sphere - promo album cover pic - 2015 - #MO990303

On October 28th, 2015 – The newly released studio album, Soul Sphere, from Chicago’s BORN OF OSIRIS is at #1, on the iTunes Top 100 Heavy Metal Albums Chart. Holy shit and yeah! This album is scathingly extreme and whoa! Soul Sphere receives the Metal Odyssey Seal Of Extreme Metal Approval. My eardrums are truthfully scarred from this album and Metal Be Thy Name!

Philip H Anselmos Housecore Horror Festival III - promo flyer - November - 2015 - #6633MMGMSASOTWA6

This November, Philip H. Anselmo’s Housecore Horror Fest will celebrate its third year of audio and visual bedlam. Set to commence in San Antonio, Texas at the Aztec Theater (201 E Commerce St.) on November 13th -15th, 2015, the horror-themed film and metal gala promises to be louder, gorier and more bludgeoning than ever before, boasting two film-screening rooms, multiple vendors, special artist signings throughout the weekend and what’s morphing into one of the most debilitating lineups of the year!

Already stacked with a crushing bill that includes Agoraphobic Nosebleed performing their second show ever, Corrosion Of Conformity featuring Pepper Keenan, Claudio Simonetti’s Goblin doing a live score of George Romero’s Dawn Of The Dead, Superjoint, Eyehategod, Nails, Crowbar, Dropdead, Autopsy, Poison Idea and so many others, the gatekeepers of Housecore Horror Fest today welcome the additions of thrash metal icons, Exodus, veteran death metal legion, Incantation, apocalyptic hardcore punk unit, Gasmiasma, atmospheric drone doom duo, Muscle And Marrow and theatrical heavy metal legend King Diamond; whose performance will feature 1987 quintessential second full-length, Abigail, in its harrowing entirety! As an added bonus, Gwar’s fabled Sleazy P. Martini will also be attending the annual gathering as a special guest!

And the awesome won’t stop there. The fest has expanded the range of its grotesqueries, with a second stage located just steps away from the Aztec Theater. The Korova, at 107 E. Martin St. in San Antonio, will play host to even MORE bands throughout the weekend. Stay tuned for additional band announcements for The Korova in the coming weeks.

Comments Anselmo: “I am beyond excited to announce that the mighty King Diamond will be attacking the house on Friday the 13th, at the Housecore Horror Festival. All hail the King.”

Adds Maryland Deathfest co-founder Ryan Taylor, who’s shaping this year’s HHF lineup alongside Anselmo: “It’s been a lot of fun piecing together this lineup with Philip. It’s gonna be a wild one, so get your tickets while you still can!”
