'Texas Frightmare Weekend' expands with more guests, movies and more!

One convention that I have always wanted to attend, but due to the sheer logistics of travelling to, have been unable to, is the Texas Frightmare Weekend. This year it runs from May 3-5 and there's a shit-ton of cool movies and guests going to be there. Movies include Maniac, Sightseers and the just announced Axe Giant: The Wrath of Paul Bunyan, which stars no less than Grizzly Adam's himself, Dan Haggerty. More details below!

Filthy Music Review - 'Sidious: Ascension to the Throne ov Self'

Sidious – Ascension to the Throne ov Self (2013)

Kaotoxin Records

Review by Jude Felton

Sidious are a new band straight out of the UK. However, although new in this carnation, the band members that make up this malevolent spirit are not. Two of the band also plays in Eye of Solitude, who is also on Kaotoxin Records, and the band itself was spawned from what was once Seeds of Detest. What is most important though, is not the past; it’s the present and future that we need to pay attention to. In this respect we are in for a hell of a ride.

Filthy Music Review - 'The Body: Master, We Perish'

The Body – Master, We Perish (2013)

At a Loss Recordings

Review by Jude Felton

The Body creates beautifully ugly music, a low-fi doom that reeks of pure nihilism and hatred. It’s a murder scene caught in audio form and on this relatively short EP (18mins) they are intent on taking the listener on a soul-destroying journey.

Filthy Music Review - 'Bovine: The Sun Never Sets on the British Empire'

Bovine – The Sun Never Sets on the British Empire (2013)

FDA Rekotz

Review by Jude Felton

Big, brassy balls and tunes that will stay embedded in your head; that’s what the hell Bovine deliver on their delightfully titled The Sun Never Sets on the British Empire album. This isn’t a twee cheeky and quirky slice of music; instead it is a flat-out blast of guitar-driven excellence. Believe me when I say that I couldn’t oversell this if I tried.

Filthy Music Review - 'Abomnium: Coffinships'

Abomnium – Coffinships (2012)

UKEM Records

Review by Jude Felton

Back in the day I can only recall the late, great Quorthon recording Bathory’s album as a solo musician. Not that you could tell though, such was in intensity of the great Swede’s albums. Leaping forward a few decades and the solo musician seems to be a far more prevalent occurrence, and judging some of the recent output I have heard, this is no bad thing. Abomnium is one such band, and the sounds within their second album, Coffinships, are nothing less than furious.
