The Maligned 'Diablo III' Auction House Is No More

bloody disgusting - Tue, 03/18/2014 - 16:26

Rejoice, for the much-maligned Diablo III auction house is officially no more. Blizzard has made good on their promise to remove the controversial feature ahead of the release of Reaper of Souls, the game’s first single-player expansion.

If you’re worried about any epic loot you may have in there, Blizzard has provided a helpful FAQ that should answer your questions regarding the transition. If you have anything pending, you may want to get it taken care of quickly.

“All active auctions will expire as normal following the shutdown of the gold and real-money auction houses on Tuesday, March 18. Once the shutdown is complete, items will either be delivered to the current highest bidder or returned to the seller, appearing in each player’s Completed tab. Unclaimed gold will also appear in the Completed tab. Players will be able to claim gold and items and from this tab until June 24, 2014.”

Now that the auction is house has finally been shuttered and the loot system upgraded, we can all sit back and enjoy the grim new expansion when it arrives on PC and Mac on March 25.

Check This Band Out: Mire

bloody disgusting - Tue, 03/18/2014 - 16:00

If you’re a fan of Tool, Karnivool, A Perfect Circle, Dead Letter Circus, and similar sounding bands, then you should be pointing your ears towards Montreal, QC band Mire, who just released their new album Inward Outward as a Name Your Price offer on Bandcamp. The band’s latest album features 10 tracks that were based on the band’s personal experiences ranging from the study of cognitive science to a military stint in Afghanistan.

Vocalist JP LaChapelle comments, “Interpreted through our fingers, tongued and toe tips, this album which we’ve been working on for 2 years at totally different points in our lives, demonstrates the fan of emotions of 5 individuals’ experience. The craft is the loom into which our soil-tending, sun-vising and pest-warding efforts bear fruit. Love for the fate of man and the anger to defend it. Overwhelmed with a sense of innate creativity, we all curb our nature to the structures put in place for our short lives; whether building an enterprise, community or institution of any kind. MIRE’s decided to make music. Filtered as pure as possible, our passion rendered this product. Our maiden album expresses the plight of an impeached animal nature, faced with the philosophy of man’s fate run through questionable funnels. Throughout our creative process, we’ve experienced different stages and shed skins. The 5 colors we shine combine through the prism of ‘Inward Outward’ to produce the first of MIRE’s own hues. Being able to walk one’s own path is its own reward and we five musicians feel incredibly fortunate to have seized the chance to create this album. That’s what we celebrate every time we hear it.

Head on below to listen to the new album as well as watch their video for “Limitless Pt. 2″.

[Album Review] Wolves Like Us 'Black Soul Choir'

bloody disgusting - Tue, 03/18/2014 - 09:00

On Black Soul Choir, the new album from Norwegian rockers Wolves Like Us, the final song is called “Thanatos Wins Again”, a brooding yet rather beautiful track that is almost saturated in thick, almost fuzzy distortion. Singer/guitarist Larsh alternates between hauntingly speaking the lyrics and roaring forth while the music hypnotically swirls and rumbles beneath.

Thanatos, the Greek god of non-violent death, might very well be the perfect deity that the band could have used as part of their own mythos. While undoubtedly heavy and rough around the edges, there is never a time when I felt their music has been inaccessible. Rather, it’s the complete opposite. They introduce this style of music, their so-called “Dark Rock”, and it never feels abrasive. Rather, it wraps its melancholic arms around you, embracing you, pulling you gently into an album that is as exciting as it is rewarding.

Opening with “Days Of Ignorance”, which clocks in at just under a minute and 30 seconds, the album begins with a frenzied burst of energy. It gives a brief moment to allow the listener to catch their breath before diving into the thrilling “Three Poisons”. “I Don’t Need To Be Forgiven” is one of the longer tracks on the album, allowing the band the take their time and demonstrate all the qualities that make them such a formidable band.

Special attention needs to be given to “Lovescared”, a gentle, sublime track that shows the softer side of the band. It also demonstrates just how strong vocalist Larsh can be, especially when it comes to his vocal harmonies. Another track that takes its time and is a perfect example of the unique instrumental tones (seriously, the guitars and bass sound so lush) is “We Were Blood”, which features a tremendous climax build up.

What’s so great about this band is that they obviously communicate incredibly well as a band. They know when certain instruments need to hold back for the betterment of the song. No one shows off unnecessarily, allowing the sum to do the talking versus the parts.

Something about the atmosphere of this album makes me want to listen to it while walking through a dark forest or while sitting on some Irish hillside with steel gray clouds looming overhead. It has a mysteriously alluring aura, one that just refused to let me go. I started this album and, before I knew what had happened, I had listened to it several times in a row without noticing. Each spin brought something new, something unheard.

The Final Word: I absolutely adored Wolves Like Us‘ debut album, Late Love. Since that came out I have been eagerly awaiting a second album and Black Soul Choir lived up to my expectations. It’s a fantastic album from a band who hopefully have a long, incredible career ahead of them.

This Horror Short Is Best Experienced With The Lights On

bloody disgusting - Tue, 03/18/2014 - 00:42

Usually, I’d say you should watch something like this in the dark, with the volume cranked up nice and loud, and while the latter still applies, I might suggest you keep the lights on for this freaky horror short. Lights Out is the work of Swedish filmmaker David Sandberg. At just under three minutes, it packs in an impressive number of jump scares and moments that will have the hairs on the back of your neck on end.

Arch Enemy Loses Angela Gossow But Gains Alissa White-Gluz From The Agonist Who Also Get A New Singer

bloody disgusting - Mon, 03/17/2014 - 20:48

Okay, that headline is a bit weird and I’m aware of it but roll with me, okay? Here’s how it works: Angela Gossow is now the ex-vocalist of melodic metal band Arch Enemy as she has decided to focus on band and artist management so that she can spend more time with her family. She has officially been replaced by Alissa White-Gluz, who was the vocalist for The Agonist, who now have Vicky Psarakis as their leadwoman. WHEW! I felt like a circus performer juggling all that information around!

The Agonist is hard at work on new material as is Arch Enemy. Both will tentatively release a new studio album this year. Head below for comments from Gossow, White-Gluz, and Arch Enemy guitarist Michael Amott.

Angela Gossow comments:
Dear Arch Enemy fans, this is not easy to tell you…I have decided to step down from being Arch Enemy’s voice of anger. After 13 years of pure fucking metal, 6 studio albums and countless tours through five continents, I feel the need to enter a different phase in my life, be with my family and pursue other interests. I will however remain business manager for Arch Enemy, and I will continue to develop my artist management roster.
I am staying true to my heavy metal roots, just leaving the spotlight so to speak. I am passing the torch to the super talented Alissa White-Gluz, whom I’ve known as a dear friend and a superb vocalist for many years. I always thought she deserved a chance to shine – and now she’s getting it. Just like I got that chance back in 2001.

I want to thank all Arch Enemy fans, our labels Century Media (worldwide) and Trooper Entertainment (Japan), our dedicated road crew, and in particular Michael, Daniel and Sharlee for their love and support throughout all these years. It’s been one hell of a ride! We conquered every situation, made it through thick & thin together in the most exciting and rewarding time of my life. Thank you all for being there with me on stage, in front of the stage, and backstage. You have touched my heart, and I hope I was able to give something back to you. I am grateful for the wonderful memories – I will cherish them forever!

I am looking forward to the next decade of Arch Enemy madness! Right now I am listening through rough mixes of the new studio album and I am blown away! 2014 will see a renewed Arch Enemy at the top of their game. I am proud to be part of this Arch Enemy chapter, albeit in a different way – revving up the engines behind the scenes. I hope to see you in front of the stage; I will join you there this time. Let the killing begin, once again!

Alissa White-Gluz comments:
I am very honored and happy to announce a new chapter in my life and musical career beginning now; I have joined forces with one of my all-time favorite and globally respected bands, Arch Enemy. ‘Wages of Sin’ was the first metal album I ever bought, and it was love at first listen. It is not often that you get a phone call from your favorite band asking you to join! I am thrilled to have the opportunity to work with such amazingly talented musicians whom I also consider great friends. I look forward to being able to write and perform at a whole new level now with Arch Enemy! Music is forever, metal is limitless and this is only the beginning!

Michael Amott:
We are eternally grateful to Angela for all her passion, hard work and talent. Her legacy is tremendous and will always be a big part of the band’s history. We feel great pride in what has been achieved in the past, but also look forward to new battles and new victories. We welcome Alissa with open arms – and we hope you will have open ears. We might have just created our most wicked metal opus yet with our upcoming album ‘War Eternal’!

This 'eXistenZ' Controller Should Come With Complimentary Wet Wipes

bloody disgusting - Mon, 03/17/2014 - 20:37

This one-of-a-kind controller is just as unique as the one we’re giving away, though I’d venture to say that it’s roughly twice as gooey. It’s the work of Vicky Knoop, a San Francisco based artist who came up with the idea after watching David Cronenberg’s body horror film eXistenZ. I love the controller, even though part of me wonders how many matches of Halo 4 it will take before it becomes sentient and tries to merge with my consciousness. Pictures after the jump!

See how it was made over at Instructables.

New Images Come Flooding In From 'Wolf Creek 2'!

bloody disgusting - Mon, 03/17/2014 - 20:20

Image Entertainment’s highly anticipated slasher Wolf Creek 2 just got a trailer release last week but that hasn’t stopped them from releasing a deluge of new images! Some of these are familiar variations on stuff we’ve more or less seen before, but – by my count – there’s some brand new stuff in here. Especially when it comes to the gore shots.

John Jarratt returns as the killer Mick Taylor, with Ryan Corr, Shannon Ashlyn and Philipe Klaus also starring in this sequel to the popular Sundance slasher originally released by Dimension Films. Wolf Creek 2 gets a VOD release on April 17, with a theatrical run set for May 16!

Directed again by Greg McLean, “Lured by the promise of an Australian holiday, backpackers Rutger, Katarina, and Paul visit the notorious Wolf Creek Crater. Their dream Outback adventure soon becomes a horrific reality when they encounter the site’s most infamous local, the last man any traveler to the region ever wants to meet; Mick Taylor (John Jarratt).

As the backpackers flee, Mick pursues them on an epic white knuckled rampage across hostile wasteland. Only one will remain to be dragged back to his lair to witness the true magnitude of his monstrosity. And if the last man standing is to have any hope of surviving where no one else has survived before, he’ll have to use every ounce of cunning to outwit the man behind the monster and become every bit as ruthless as the monster inside the man.

It has good special effects, but just enough to say, 'Wow, where did that come from? How did they do that?'"

The four-month shoot is set to begin in April, with the film being primarily shot in New Orleans. A July 2015 release is planned at this time.

Jai Courtney will play Kyle Reese alongside Emilia Clarke's Sarah Connor and Jason Clarke's John Connor.

Leprechaun in the Hood: The Musical: A Novel Makes its Online Debut!

Dread Central - Mon, 03/17/2014 - 18:14

It's been an unusually festive St. Patrick's Day for horror fans between the first footage of Leprechaun: Origins and Vamprechaun's IndieGoGo campaign. But this free online novel may be the strangest and most compelling of them all.

That's right, kids! Leprechaun in the Hood: The Musical: A Novel is serialized horror delivered by some of the best names in genre literature. Join Cameron Pierce, Adam Cesare, and Shane McKenzie as they bring you an all-new novel built around a musical adaptation of Leprechaun in the Hood.

I know what you're thinking: "dafuq" or something along those lines, right? Read on for a little bit more clarification, or head on over to Reddit and start reading!

What the hell is this?

Leprechaun in the Hood: The Musical: A Novel is a serial novel that will be released in weekly installments, for free, on Dreadit, the /r/horror Reddit.

It tells the story of what happens when a group of friends try to put on a stage musical based on the film Leprechaun in the Hood, only to end up falling foul of the real-life inspiration for the films, and boy is this leprechaun pissed.

So it’s like fanfiction? I thought there was another subreddit for that kind of stuff…

No! The novel is original fiction that works as an homage and gentle parody of the franchise while telling its own, completely original story. All characters in the novel are original (including our leprechaun) and no copyrighted material is used.

Sounds cool, who are these guys writing it?

Cameron Pierce is not only a Wonderland Award winning author (Die You Doughnut Bastards, Lost in Cat Brain Land), editor (In Heaven Everything is Fine: Fiction Inspired by David Lynch), and a star in the bizarro fiction scene, but he also runs Lazy Fascist Press, an alternative lit publisher. Lazy Fascist and its releases have been covered in the L.A. Times, Forbes, the New York Times Arts Beat, and Business Week.

Horror author Adam Cesare’s novels include Video Night, The First One You Expect and The Summer Job. He’s garnered praise from the likes of John Skipp and Duane Swierczynski. His writing has been featured in Fangoria and The Los Angeles Review of Books.

One of the biggest names in extreme horror, Shane McKenzie is the author of Muerte Con Carne, Pus Junkies and many others. He’s also the co-author of Sixty-Five Stirrup Iron Road (with Brian Keene, Edward Lee, Jack Ketchum, and others) and penned the short film M Is for Matador, which will be featured in ABCs of Death 1.5. He also writes comics for Zenescope.

Where and When Can I find it again?

The first installment will go live on St. Patrick’s Day (March 17th) only on Dredit.

Schwarzenegger Says 'Terminator: Genesis' Feels More Like 'T2' Than The Other Entries

bloody disgusting - Mon, 03/17/2014 - 18:08

While we’ve all heard whispers of what the plot for Terminator: Genesis might be, a time travel saga that addresses events from prior entries, we haven’t really heard much about the film’s tone. Now, Collider has an interview with Arnold Schwarzenegger himself that addresses the issue – in a manner many of you will be happy with. He tells the site, The way it reads, it has the same feel of Terminator 2. It’s big. There’s hardcore action and it has some really great visual effects in there, but not over the top. It’s not a Thor type of movie, even though it’s the same director. It has good special effects, but just enough to say, “Wow, where did that come from? How did they do that?

In the rest of the interview he says one of the reasons he was asked back is because he’s stayed in shape. Granted, he’s in much much better shape than most people in their 60′s, but I’m still not sure I can see him owning the role again. I will be happy to be proven wrong though.

Laeta Kalogridis and Patrick Lussier penned the script. In theaters July 1, 2015, Emilia Clarke is on board to play Sarah Connor and Jason Clarke will play John Connor. Jai Courtney is playing Kyle Reese. J.K. Simmons plays an alcoholic detective trying to make sense of the events of 1984. Alan Taylor is directing.

Dread Central - Mon, 03/17/2014 - 17:34

If you're not privy to the majesty and glory that is Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare, then brothers and sisters, you're REALLY missing out. Guess what? Things are about to get even better!

From the Press Release
That’s right, there’s more. The critically-acclaimed shooter Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare brings even more bizarre fun with the new 8v8 “Gnome Bomb” gameplay mode, the option to customize your load out with 24 new ability upgrades and an all-new map, Chomp Town.

You'll find them all in the downloadable Garden Variety Pack (DLC) available for free starting March 18 on Xbox One and Xbox 360.

Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare launched in February with a 90 from Gaming Trend raving, “Garden Warfare is entertaining, accessible, and oozing with charm,” and IGN saying “[Garden Warfare] sets itself apart from other multiplayer third-person shooters.”

The Garden Variety Pack features 24 new ability upgrades, three for each class including Sunflower’s Solar Flare Beam, Chomper’s Super Goop which cements zombies in place, and the All-Star Zombie’s Ultra Tackle. These upgrades give players even more load out options for battle in the fun-dead field.

The Garden Variety Pack also introduces the explosive Gnome Bomb mode that challenges plants and zombies to work together to destroy each other’s reinforced garden or graveyard. Players can explore a new funtastic map and encounter a band of fresh Pirate Zombies, such as the Map Pirate Zombie, who shields himself with a treasure map, in Sharkbite Shores and Port Scallywag.

Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare is a best-in-class multiplayer shooter experience that combines the fresh humor of the beloved Plants vs. Zombies franchise. Players are able to take on the roles of plants and zombies across a mine-blowing terrain. Powered by the Frostbite™ 3 engine, Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare!
