MAN CRATES: Supplying Everything You Need To Survive a Horror Movie!*


I was recently contacted by the California based company Man Crates, visit their site HERE, who specialize in gifts/survival kits for the manly man and shipping them in specially designed wooden crates for that extra rugged feel.  What Man Crates contacted me about was that they were interested in me writing a blog for Halloween that would detail what I would want in a Horror Movie Survival Crate.  Once I read the email then visiting their site and seeing their zombie survival pack I was super excited!

As I am a HUGE horror movie fan I am really eager to put in my two cents on what I would want in my own personal survival pack.  Also, I am going to be thinking of a survival pack that can hopefully carry a person through to the end in most horror genres instead of just focusing on one specific type of horror genre.  Also, I will be breaking the 4th Wall here to make sure I survive!

                Well what can be said about Orchid that has not been said already?  They have been compared heavily to Black Sabbath due to their heavy morose guitar and atmospheric sound that hearken back to the early Sabbath days.  I find this comparison a fair one but do Orchid stand out from the rest of the stoner and doom metal bands out there?  Let’s pluck an apple from this tree and take a bite out of this bitch!

SISTER SIN: Multi-Camera Footage Of San Francisco Concert

Capital Chaos TV has uploaded multi-camera video footage of SISTER SIN‘s February 21 performance at Thee Parkside in San Francisco, California as the support act for Doro Pesch. Check it out below.

SISTER SIN‘s third album, “Now And Forever”, entered the official chart in the band’s home country of Sweden at position No. 44. Released on October 23, 2012 via Victory Records, the CD was recorded at Standstraight Studios in Stockholm with producer Chris Snyder and was mixed by Cameron Webb (MOTÖRHEAD, SOCIAL DISTORTION, DANZIG).

In a 2012 interview with Loudwire, SISTER SIN singer Liv Jagrell stated about the new album title: “The title ‘Now And Forever’ is kind of a statement for us as a band. As a band and as individuals, we have been through quite a lot of things, a lot of troubles and things that might break up bands but we’re so dedicated to this band. So that’s the title — we are here now and hopefully forever. We won’t give up even if something goes wrong.”

Asked what keeps the band going after all these years, Liv said: “Yes, it’s been almost a decade — at least for me and Dave [Sunberg], the drummer — because we started the band from the beginning, and yeah, it’s kind of a decade now; that’s a long time. It’s really hard today with the business, there’s so many bands, so much competition out there, no money whatsoever and all the things with downloads. I mean, it could be good but also bad, depending on how you look at it. When I started to play music at 15, the music business and scene was totally different and you could actually make money from it. When I was 15, I just decided, ‘I’m going to play music my whole life and I’m going to be a rock star’ — that kind of attitude. So I spent all 15 years to convince myself that that’s the only thing I will ever, ever do, so that’s why I can’t give up because I programmed my brain to believe that I will do this forever. I think that’s why we don’t give up and why sometimes other bands do — they find other opportunities and other things they love, too, they have something else you actually can do and you’ll probably do that because that will make you money and a better living. If you just prepare your whole life to be in the music business and tell yourself, ‘This is what I’m going to do, I’m not going to do anything else,’ it’s kind of foolish and childish, but in that way you just can’t give up. People, of course, give up and I’m not saying I’m not going to do it years from now, but right now I still feel like I have to fight for that dream that I had as a teenager. Obviously, we all have gained a lot and experienced so much, but we’re still a little bit far away that whole kind of — living with the music or for the music thing — close but still far away. [laughs] I think that’s what drives us.”
