White Moth Black Butterfly Release Video For "Rising Sun"

bloody disgusting - Fri, 04/11/2014 - 09:15

UK experimental group White Moth Black Butterfly has premiered a video for their new single “Rising Sun” over at Prog, which you can also watch below. Fronted by Daniel Tompkins (ex-TesseracT), it’s a unique, rather beautiful song. The mixture of Daniel’s vocals, who often aims for higher ranges, and co-vocalist Jordan Bethany, whose breathy vocals almost float throughout, create a wonderful dynamic.

You can snag the band’s debut album One Thousand Wings via Bandcamp.

GWAR Posts Video Statement On The Loss Of Dave Brockie (aka Oderus Urungus)

bloody disgusting - Fri, 04/11/2014 - 08:30

The surviving members of GWAR and Slave Pit Inc. have come together to create a video statement regarding the recent passing of frontman David Murray Brockie (aka Oderus Urungus). The members talk about how the outreach from the fans has been nothing short of incredible for them and that Dave would want things to keep going, including the 5th annual GWAR-B-Q, where a public memorial service will be held. The group also did not lose their humor, as evidenced by the last several seconds of the video.

The video was also used to announced the creation of The Dave Brockie Foundation. The exact description reads, “The Dave Brockie Foundation is a charity fund with the mission of promoting the advancement of music, images, letters and performances in the arts. It will endeavor to encourage promising talents, as well as preserving the legacy of Dave’s body of works. It intends to be a support system to those who have dedicated their lives in pursuit of creativity. The Dave Brockie Foundation will be a resource for artists in the fields of music, film, literature and all visual arts who cannot find funding through mainstream channels. The DBF will also strive to catalog and preserve Dave’s vast collection of original images, recordings and written words, and make them available for the world to appreciate. The foundation’s first goal is to finance the creation of a memorial monument in Richmond, Virginia to provide the world with a place to pay respects to the memory of a very cherished man.

Donations can be made here. The video can be seen below.

'The Last Of Us Remastered' Trailer Reminds Us How Many Critics Enjoyed The Game

bloody disgusting - Thu, 04/10/2014 - 22:56

The newly confirmed The Last of Us Remastered got a trailer today. It serves as more of an ad for the base game, rather than this new “enhanced” version, but I’m not sure you can say much more about one of the previous generation’s most high profile and critically lauded titles.

As for what this version offers, Naughty Dog has said they’re reworking the character models, lighting and textures. This version will also run in full 1080p and bring with it the Left Behind expansion, as well as both of the Territories map packs.

Unless you’d like a reminder of how many critics enjoyed The Last of Us (spoiler: it’s basically all of them), I suggest skipping to around 0:50 to briefly see the game in action.

The Last of Us Remastered arrives this Summer on PS4.

Feel free to send Adam an email or follow him on Twitter:

HACK/SLASH Hunts Again in July!

bloody disgusting - Thu, 04/10/2014 - 21:49

Tim Seeley’s “HACK/SLASH” has been a unique series that always has fun by playing with the conventions of horror. No tribute is too far out of reach, and now a new creative team is slashing their way through Cassie Hack’s life. Michael Moreci (HOAX HUNTERS) and Steve Seeley (HOAX HUNTERS) bring the all new arc SON OF SAMHAIN.

When a mysterious cult of monsters arises, Cassie is forced to return to the life she thought she’d left behind. Coupled with a new partner and faced with enemies unlike any she has battled before, Cassie must confront the darkness in the world—and in her own life—in new ways. The agents of evil never rest, and unfortunately for them, neither does Cassie Hack.

From Image:


The newest chapter in Cassie Hack’s life will appeal to both long-time HACK/SLASH fans and readers looking for a jumping-on point. “Readers are going to get something that is immediately recognizable as Hack/Slash, yet unique in its own way as well,” said Moreci. “I think Tim told the story he wanted to tell, and that’s why he brought in Steve and I—we’re preserving what he did while building a whole new thing. There’s a lot of great stories to still tell with Cassie Hack and, hopefully, Son of Samhain is just the beginning.”

“All biases aside, I’ve been a Hack/Slash fan from the beginning. It’s a smart book with equal parts horror, comedy, action, sexiness; you name it. We knew continuing that legacy would be a difficult task, considering its history and loyal fan base, but Mike and I are damn proud of what we are doing with the book,” said Steve Seeley. “It’s still a sexy, comedic, action-y, horror comic, except it takes two of us to write it now. Mike’s all sexy action. I’m comedic horror. This is our sequel… the next step in the evolution of Cassie Hack.”

HACK/SLASH: SON OF SAMHAIN #1 arrives in stores on 7/2, and will be available for $3.50. It can be pre-ordered with Diamond Code MAY140592. An incentive variant cover featuring art by Cameron Stewart will also be available to order with Diamond Code MAY140593.

Having spoken to Michael Moreci at ECCC, I can indeed confirm the series is in very capable hands. They have some fantastic things planned for Cassie that we’ve never seen before. Stay tuned for an interview with this new creative team as the book gets a little closer to launch. I guarantee this will be one to watch for fans and newcomers alike.

Rick Remender & Greg Tocchini's "LOW" Finally Surfaces in July!

bloody disgusting - Thu, 04/10/2014 - 21:31

Not content with having two creator owned comics on the shelf, human comics machine Rick Remender is set to debut a brand new series from Image in July. “Low” follows two teams of humans from the last remaining undersea cities on Earth as they make the treacherous journey to a wildly alien world – the surface. This sci fi fantasy series sees Remender teaming up with his frequent collaborator Greg Tocchini (The Last Days of American Crime, Uncanny X-Force) to bring a new spin on old ideas.

Excitement has been bubbling since the series was announced at January’s Image Expo and today the release date and preliminary art was released by Image. Hit the jump to see what it’s all about!

Tocchini’s art is stunning. The duo’s work on Uncanny X-Force was some of my favorite in the series. Remender is one of those writers who manages to find artists who compliment his writing style beautifully, and if this art is any indication it looks like he has yet another home run on his hands. The work here reminds me of “Saga” in all the right ways, a little darker, but crisp clean art, with vivid and almost flat color.

Review: ''The Twilight Zone' #4

bloody disgusting - Thu, 04/10/2014 - 13:29

Recreating the magic of the past, “The Twilight Zone” #4 is a twisted mind-puzzler that steers towards a satisfying conclusion. Based on the classic TV series by Rod Serling, “The Twilight Zone” closes its first story arc with a bang. Whether you’re a die-hard fan or a newbie, don’t miss the next stop to another dimension.

WRITTEN BY: J. Michael Straczynski
ART BY: Guiu Vilanova
PUBLISHER: Dynamite Entertainment
PRICE: $3.99
RELEASE: April 9, 2013

In order to avoid prison time, Trevor Richmond traded his old life and left everyone else to deal with his problems. With a different name and face, Trevor walks around unpunished from his heinous crimes. Trevor suddenly sees himself testifying in court, making things right in a way he never could. John is making a better man out of Trevor and becoming the husband that Trevor’s wife always wanted. On the verge of losing his mind, Trevor cannot bear seeing someone else having his name and face.

Writer J. Michael Straczynski delivers an intense psychological thriller about self-identity and second chances. Straczynski emphasizes the tragic back-story on Trevor’s doppelganger, John. Given a short time to live, John shakes the Devil’s hand and signs a Faustian deal. John chooses to make life worth living, finding real love that was missing in his previous life. We’re rooting for John even though he is a thief and manipulator. Trevor continues to squander his second chance and wants back what he selfishly gave away.

What’s really interesting about Straczynski’s narrative is how he plays around with the concept of the anthology. As a storyteller, Straczynski leaves loose threads to pick up on in further installments. The secondary characters are connected somehow, as if Straczynski has a bigger story for them in mind. Straczynski does something creative here that definitely works in the comic book medium, which the TV remakes lost a great opportunity on.

Artist Guiu Vilanova reinforces the themes of second chances during the doppelganger’s flashback. Vilanova portrays John as a such a bum loser with his messy hairstyle and sleeveless shirt. But when John is living Trevor’s life, you see a dramatic change in his posture and clothing. Though he is still dying, John has something to look forward to. You can tell John is still there as he wears Trevor’s face because of Vilanova’s close-up on the eyes.

Vilanova delivers a suspenseful confrontation between Trevor and John. Though the scene is dialogue heavy, Vilanova heightens the facial expressions between the two. Fueled by selfish desires, Trevor has accepted his bloodlust as he aims the gun at John’s head. Vilanova captures the climax through tight close-ups, focusing on the emotional intensity.

“The Twilight Zone” #4 closes its first chapter on a satisfying note. With the shocking cliff-hanger, I can’t wait to see what happens in the next story arc.

4/5 Skulls
