Book review: If You Died Tomorrow I Would Eat Your Corpse – Wrath James White

  I guess I should’ve known what to expect with this latest collection from Wrath James White having read many of his works in the past. And yet still, I found myself aroused, sickened and at times shocked with the book’s content…in the best possible way, of course ; ) Great cover art, great title, If You Died Tomorrow I Would Eat Your Corpse is not … Continue reading Book review: If You Died Tomorrow I Would Eat Your Corpse – Wrath James White

EP review: Orion Fenix – OWL

    Consisting of a single track and weighing in at 22 minutes in length, Orion Fenix opens with a beautiful melody, and for the first couple of minutes, listeners are swept away upon oceans of atmospheric guitar. Soon the guitars awaken fully and the track moves into a crushingly heavy rhythm. This is a formula that OWL continues with for the remainder of the … Continue reading EP review: Orion Fenix – OWL

Magazine review: Unnerving Magazine #5

    Unnerving issue #5 gets off to an immense start with Glug Glug by Aaron J. Householder and the sinister Red Room by Christa Carmen. Whilst only short, Householder’s tale is a fun, throwback style horror story that put a huge smile on my face and one that I felt was a little reminiscent of Stephen King. Christa Carmen’s Red Room is a different beast … Continue reading Magazine review: Unnerving Magazine #5

Album review: Antagonism of the Soul – Insolvency

    Just when you thought the metalcore train had left the station, along comes Insolvency to help you remember why you fell in love with this often maligned sub-genre in the first place.

Genocidal Majesty – Gnaw Their Tongues

  As the name perhaps suggests, Genocidal Majesty is a punishing and brutally chaotic release from Gnaw Their Tongues and it is an album I am never likely to forget. Opening with the apocalyptic-sounding Death Leaves the World, we are awakened by a series of tortured shrieks and industrial synths. This is the soundtrack to the end of days right here. The production is bloody raw and … Continue reading Genocidal Majesty – Gnaw Their Tongues

Book review: Hidden City – Alan Baxter

  I’m a huge fan of Alan Baxter’s work. His short story collection, Crow Shine, blew me away, as did his recent novella, The Book Club. Alan’s latest book, Hidden City, is quite different and it shows what a talented writer he is. Hidden City blends urban fantasy, noir and horror. If you can imagine James Herbert’s The Fog mixed with Jim Butcher’s Dresden Files, … Continue reading Book review: Hidden City – Alan Baxter

Book review: Every Time We Meet at the Dairy Queen Your Whole Fucking Face Explodes – Carlton Mellick III

    Reading Carlton Mellick III always makes me feel like I have fallen down a rabbit hole, just like Alice did. One of the most original and entertaining voices out there, Mellick’s prose style is far from lush and poetic, but he has a captivating voice and despite his stories’ obvious weirdness I cannot help but love his books. Every book I have ever … Continue reading Book review: Every Time We Meet at the Dairy Queen Your Whole Fucking Face Explodes – Carlton Mellick III
