CD: Killing Machines

One such band I recently had the ?pleasure? to receive a message from is the all female Russian Punk band, Pincher. After looking at the tracklisting and listening to the songs I’m left with a completely ‘What the Fuck did I listen to???’ It’s obvious the band has a unique take on things…read on if you want your mind BLOWN!

Los Angeles-based heavy metallers HOLY GRAIL have joined forces with independent video game designers Nocturnal Studio in the brand new, addictive, arcade-style game Death Goat, now available via Microsoft’s Xbox Live Indie Games service.
The game has been described as “a bloody twin-stick shooter featuring hordes of brutal enemies and eardrum-destroying heavy metal.” You can view a trailer for the game – which features the title track from Holy Grail’s new album, Ride The Void – below:

Okay, sorry for the bad pun in the headline. But the fact is, a noose figures prominently in the new poster (courtesy of the film’s Facebook page) for James Wan’s THE CONJURING. Notice the eerie shadow on the ground near the tree. You’ve got to like the atmospheric simplicity in this one-sheet (even if it does elicit thoughts of SINISTER‘s effective tree-hanging visual); I’m guessing the next piece of art we see from the movie won’t be as subtle.
Before there was Amityville, there was Harrisville. Based on a true story, “The Conjuring” tells the horrifying tale of how world-renowned paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren were called upon to help a family terrorized by a dark presence in a secluded farmhouse. Forced to confront a powerful demonic entity, the Warrens find themselves caught in the most terrifying case of their lives.
THE CONJURING stars Vera Farmiga, Patrick Wilson, Ron Livingston and Lili Taylor; it opens on JULY 19th in the US and UK.
