Filthy Music Review - 'Idensity: Chronicles'

Idensity – Chronicles (2013)

Review by Jude Felton

Another day, another slice of French metallic mayhem, or so it would seem. Although, that being said, it is in no way meant as a negative, as once again I find myself listening to an album of excellent quality. This second album from Idensity could have, if not should have, been a right royal mess, and I’ll tell you why.

Filthy Music Review - 'Colosus: Blestem'

Colosus – Blestem (2013)

Kaotoxin Records

Review by Jude Felton

The fall is upon us, the nights are drawing in and this morning I had to scrape bloody ice from my windshield. Actually, the ice wasn’t bloody, although that picture would probably suit this review quite nicely. This time of year, through to the spring is perfect for black and doom metal, from the ideologies, the imagery and the very music itself. Personally, once I have gotten rid of the damned ice, I love to go for a drive at this time of year, with the grimmest of music playing.

Filthy Music Review - 'DiRiGiRi: DiRiGiRi'

DiRiGiRi – DiRiGiRi (2013)

Self-released EP

Review by Jude Felton

Hailing from San Antonio, Texas, Dirigiri have only just recently hit my radar, which has resulted in wholesale damage to it. There’ll be a bill in the mail. In all seriousness though, this four-piece deliver an old school blend of thrash and death metal, and they do it well.

Filthy Review - 'Hanging for Django'

Hanging for Django (1969)

Review by Jude Felton

Or, Una Lunga Fila di Croci (A Long Line of Crosses) as it is also known. That is also a far more fitting, not to mention better, name for this movie. However, the Django flicks were big money spinners back in the day, and even though the original Franco Nero movie spawned just the one sequel, it didn’t stop the money men using the name for their films.

Filthy Review - 'Body Bags'

Body Bags (1993)

Review by Jude Felton

Of all the horror anthologies out there, Body Bags is one that I had not watched, until this new edition from Scream came along. So, it’s only taken me 20 years to get around to it, and I am actually kicking myself for this, as it’s damned good fun.

Filthy Review - 'Assault on Precinct 13'

Assault on Precinct 13 (1976)

Review by Jude Felton

There’s a scene in Tony Scott’s 1993 flick, True Romance, where Christian Slater’s character, Clarence, is explaining “movies” to Saul Rubinek’s Lee. Assault of Precinct 13 is a “movie”, not a film, but a dick swinging sonofabitch movie. It swaggers across the screen with an almost nihilist "fuck you" attitude, and quite honestly rocks the goddamn house. Director John Carpenter has made many outstanding movies, but Assault on Precinct 13 is without a doubt one of the best.
