Filthy Music Review - 'Bölzer: Soma'

Bölzer - Soma EP (2014)

Invictus Productions 

Review by Trevor Proctor

Formed in 2008, Switzerland’s Bölzer have been gathering critic and fan based acclaim steadily since the release of their demo “Roman Acupuncture” in 2012; this rise to prominence was accelerated significantly when their debut MLP “Aura” came out via Iron Bonehead Productions in May 2013 - a release that hailed a mountain of praise from all quarters.

Black Fawn Distro invite you to a 'Silent Retreat'

Even though we have not covered as much film news as we have in the past, it's fairly common knowledge that I really enjoy Canadian horror movies. Now, we're not just talking the classic Canadian cinema, such as the works of David Cronenberg (which do of course kick ass), but the new wave that is currently also kicking ass and taking names. One of the forerunners in helping get these movies to a wider audience is Black Fawn Distro. They recently gave us the delightful Discopath, which you have to check out, and come September 2nd they will unleash Silent Retreat. The film is directed by Tricia Lee and stars one of my favorite actors, Robert Nolan. Read on for more information, including stills and the trailer!

The Burning!! Mad Max!! Maniac!! It can only be Hudson Horror 9!!

There's a very good chance that Errol, Mike and the crew behind the Hudson Horror Shows are into sorcery; I shit you not. The first I attended was HH6(66), which screened Re-Animator and Phantasm 2, among others, which happen to be two of my favorite horror flicks. Then, at HH7, they unloaded the big gun with a screening of my all-time fav; House by the Cemetery. Alas, I missed HH8, which had two more favs, in The Thing and Escape from New York. Now, with Hudson Horror 9 they have done it again; The Burning, Maniac AND Mad Max. Fuck me gently, they are inside my head I tell thee. Damned sorcery!!!
