CADAVERIA: Italian Horror Metal Veterans Join Time To Kill Records – New Album “Emptiness” To See May Release

Posted in Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, horror, metal music, Music, music news, news with tags , , , , , , on April 4, 2022 by Metal Odyssey

Time To Kill Records officially welcomes Italy’s CADAVERIA to the label’s roster, announcing their highly anticipated sixth album, “Emptiness”, for May release.

Whether you call them horror, gothic or dark metal, one thing is certain: in their 20+ years career Cadaveria have become one of the most iconic bands of the Italian metal scene.

The “Emptiness” cover art, created by Roberto Toderico (Facebook / Instagram), has been revealed. Time To Kill Records will release the album on double LP, CD, cassette and digital formats on May 27th 2022. Watch for more album details, singles, preorders, and more to post in the weeks ahead.

CADAVERIA is the creative alter-ego of Italian-based metal singer Raffaella Rivarolo, better known by her stage name Cadaveria, one of the first women to hit the extreme metal scene in the early Nineties.

CADAVERIA band was founded in 2001 by Cadaveria herself and drummer Marçelo Santos, to freely express themselves as musicians and extreme artists.

Since CADAVERIA’s debut album The Shadows’ Madame (2002) the band’s style is labeled Horror Metal. Their personal sound is imbued with gloomy and sinister atmospheres and it mixes Black Metal with classical Heavy Metal, Death Metal and Gothic influences. The lyrics, scheming, hermetic and introspective, mirror the dark soul and the vexed personality of the singer Cadaveria.

2021 is a meaningful one for CADAVERIA band, as the band celebrate its 20 years of activity. A career that boasts five full length albums, some reissues, an EP (with Necrodeath), a retrospective double DVD and a huge support from fans of Central America, where CADAVERIA have made a series of headlining tours, between 2007 and 2015.

From 2012 on, with the release of the most recent albums Horror Metal and Silence, CADAVERIA have been engaged in many live dates that have seen them protagonists of different stages in Germany, France, Belgium, Romania, as well as numerous Italian shows as headliner and in support of Cradle of Filth, Arch Enemy and many more.

CADAVERIA have recently released a series of new singles, that mark the band’s return to the scene after a long pause, during which the singer had to be treated for cancer.

You can stream all the new singles by playing this Spotify Playlist: https://bit.ly/recentsingles

You can watch all the recent videos on YouTube at this link: https://bit.ly/allrecentvideos

Metal Merch – GWAR Metal Pin… Plus Concert Photos From November 11th Cincinnati Ohio Show!

Posted in concerts, Heavy Metal, horror, metal music, Music, music news, news with tags , , , , , , , , on December 1, 2021 by Metal Odyssey

Yes, GWAR were magnificent live! GWAR invaded Bogart’s in Cincinnati Ohio, back on November 11th. I took the live photos you see on this post with my iPhone; thus I’m admittedly no professional photographer (hahaha).

I bought quite a bunch at the merch table; one item is this GWAR stamped metal pin. Whoa!

There was a HUGE pit and everyone attending this show were lit in one manner or another. It was Metal euphoria and I drank plenty of PBR while there. I went to this GWAR show with my buddy Troy; it was his birthday as well. Good Metal times! At this concert, GWAR didn’t spray down the fans with any goo or monster secretions; not from my vantage point anyways.

I’m going to post more concert photos of GWAR with more merch I bought, in the coming days. I did buy a GWAR keychain that I gave to a coworker of mine. One last thought: it was raining like hell on our drive down to Cincinnati that night. Troy drove his car and (as usual) was a superhero behind the wheel; getting us there fast and safe.

If you’ve never seen GWAR live, I strongly encourage you to do so. If you’re not interested in GWAR, then drink a gallon of prune juice and listen to your ABBA records. Metal be thy name! – Stone

LONG LIVE GWAR.

Rest In Peace, Sid Haig, Horror Film Icon

Posted in horror, horror movies, movies, news, world news with tags , , , , on September 22, 2019 by Metal Odyssey

Legendary film actor Sid Haig passed away on September 21, 2019, at the age of 80. Sad news, indeed. I’m no expert on the entire film career of Sid Haig; however, his role as Captain Spaulding featured in Rob Zombie‘s House Of 1000 Corpses and The Devils Rejects has left a terrifying impression on me which will last forever.

For me, Captain Spaulding epitomizes the ultimate demonic character I’ve ever witnessed on film. That says a ton and again it’s my opinion. His serial killer role came across to me as being too real; where so many other villains of film are either too outlandish or cartoonish. I’ve yet to see the newest addition to Rob Zombie’s trilogy of terror: 3 From Hell. Without a doubt, I will see this new film of bloody gore! The Rob Zombie films aside, I am eager to look back on other Sid Haig films which I have missed over the years. May Sid Haig rest in peace or continue his soul journey, wherever he may be. Metal be thy name. – Stone

THE SCABBY GHOULS – Stream Self-Titled Debut

Posted in horror, horror punk, Music, music news, news, punk, Punk rock, rock music, world news with tags , , , , on March 14, 2019 by Metal Odyssey

Horror punks The Scabby Ghouls are now streaming the entirety of their self-titled debut over at Alternative Control.

Stream the album here: http://www.alternativecontrolct.com/music/album-premiere-the-scabby-ghouls-s-t/

“The Scabby Ghouls” blends party-loving punk and the macabre seamlessly for a truly fun and unique experience. Described by fans as “Scooby-Doo Punk” or “Haunted House Punk”, this band celebrates all things creepy, spooky and bizarre year-round. Whether harkening back to the Elizabeth Short murder in the ‘50s, venting in frustration at the inability to drive, or punning on everyone’s favorite Elm Street murderer, the lyrics are as gruesome as they are cheerful when delivered by the Hazards, who also handle guitar work adeptly. This album showcases the band’s ability to blend various punk sub-genres with their own unique sound for an altogether novel experience.

To celebrate the release, The Scabby Ghouls will be playing alongside other local punk and hardcore bands including Stronghold, Hand-Painted Police Car, and Dummy Head Torpedo at the Lookout Lounge on Friday March 15th 2019 at 8 P.M. (Doors at 7 P.M.). $7.00 cover, all-ages show.

The Scabby Ghouls are:
Denise Hazard – Vocals, Rhythm Guitar
Louie Hazard – Lead Guitar, Backup Vocals
Alex Steffens – Bass Guitar
Nathan Christensen – Drums

RIVERS OF NIHIL – Announces North American Tour With Dying Fetus

Posted in Hard Rock, horror, Metal, Music, music news, news, rock music, world news with tags , , , , , on February 7, 2018 by Metal Odyssey

Dying Fetus - Rivers Of Nihil - tour flyer - April March 2018 - #333MO333ILMGDSO

RIVERS OF NIHIL will take on a North American tour this March and April with Dying Fetus, Thy Art Is Murder, Enterprise Earth, and Sanction. The journey will commence March 15th in Poughkeepsie, New York and make its way through nearly three-dozen cities, drawing to a close on April 22nd in Amityville, New York.

The band will be touring in support of their third full-length, Where Owls Know My Name, set for release on March 16th — just one day after tour kick off — via Metal Blade Records. Whereas 2013’s The Conscious Seed Of Light and 2015’s Monarchy were thematically centered around spring and summer, respectively, Where Owls Know My Name represents the fall. And although that season is usually associated with death, for RIVERS OF NIHIL, the autumn serves as a rebirth.

Where Owls Know My Nam reunites RIVERS OF NIHIL with Monarchy producer Carson Slovak (August Burns Red, The Last Ten Seconds Of Life) and Dan Seagrave, the storied artist behind such celebrated album covers as Entombed’s Left Hand Path and Suffocation‘s Effigy Of The Forgotten. Where Owls Know My Name is often just as punishing as its predecessors while assimilating ingredients from musical genres as varied as electronica, jazz, alternative, folk, and the golden age of Shrapnel Records. The resulting music is indescribably progressive, a multifaceted soundscape that goes beyond the wildest dreams of even the group’s most ardent admirers.

For a first preview of Where Owls Know My Name, “The Silent Life” can be heard at: metalblade.com/riversofnihil where the record can also be preordered in various formats.

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.

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?

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!”

On This Day In METAL History – March 13th… Horror Movie Special Edition!

Posted in horror, horror movies, movies with tags , , , , , on March 13, 2015 by Metal Odyssey

The Fun House - promo poster pic - 1981 - #810313MO

On March 13th, 1981The Fun House was released to wide-screen theaters, via Universal. The legendary Tobe Hooper was the director for this horror film and Lawrence Block was the writer. I remember watching this movie quite a few times on HBO, back in the day, during an era when the R rated movies were only shown after ten o’clock at night. This creepy film shows why you should not stay overnight at a traveling carnival. Whoa!

Higway To Hell - promo movie poster pic - 1992 - #0313HTHMO

On March 13th, 1992Highway To Hell was released to wide-screen theaters, via Hemdale. A young American couple are warned not to sleep after the second tree on a certain back road, while traveling to Las Vegas to get married. After fueling up their car and falling asleep, (the girlfriend) Rachel gets arrested by a Hellcop and (the boyfriend) Charlie now has to go to hell to rescue his fiancé.

I love the AC/DC title to this movie and its subtitle Where The Toll Is You Soul is classic! This film was directed by Ate de Jong.

The Last House On The Left - promo movie poster - 2009 - #0313TLHOTLMO

On March 13th, 2009 – The super scary thriller, The Last House On The Left, was released to wide-screen theaters, via Rogue Pictures. The iconic Wes Craven directed and produced the original version of this movie, back in 1972. Wes Craven returned to produce this remake with Sean Cunningham. This film took in over 45 million (U.S. dollars) at the box office. I suppose if a house looks creepy enough, don’t go near it. ‘Nuff said.

It Follows - promo movie poster pic - 2015 - #0313IFMO

On March 13th, 2015It Follows is released to wide-screen theaters. Written and directed by David Robert Mitchell, this horror film centers around a 19-year-old girl named Jay and the terrifying situation she finds herself in, after a sexual encounter with another teenage boy. Apparently a supernatural force follows her every step since her sexual encounter and this same evil force can be passed along to another person, via a sexual situation. This movie is obviously pretty darn sexual? Metal be thy name, I’m confused.

On This Day In METAL History – January 6th…

The Devil Inside - promo movie poster pic - Horror - #2012 - 0206TDI

I always state that Horror and Paranormal movies are Metal. I cannot help feeling that way. The Devil Inside is no different, being a Horror movie that was promoted with posters that can rival many evil Metal album covers, both past and present. The Devil Inside was released on January 6th, 2012, via Paramount Pictures.

Just looking at the demonic nun on the top movie poster is like opening a jar of evil whoop-ass! This movie poster has Black Metal imagery screaming from every crevice! The Devil Inside movie poster below is almost just as abominable to look at; I feel the imagery portrays both Black Metal and Death Metal. Do you feel the same way?

The Devil Inside - Horror movie poster pic - #2012 - 0206DI

Based on a true story, The Devil Inside is about Maria Rossi; a confessed killer of three people. Maria Rossi has been locked up for twenty years, inside a hospital for the criminally insane, located in Italy. Her daughter Isabella seeks to find the truth about her mother’s murderous night. Isabella asks two Exorcists to help her mother overcome evil possession. Then… well… they all find out that four pissed-off demons are possessing Isabella’s mother, Maria Rossi. Whoa and unholy crap!

The Devil Inside was written and directed by William Brent Bell and stars Suzan Crowley as Maria Rossi and Fernanda Andrade as Isabella.
