Horror and extreme music is, and will always be, my passion and that will be reflected by the majority of the content here. I always give my own skewed and unique look at movies and music, and you can rest assured that if I like it I will let you know about it, regardless of whether that is a popular opinion or not. I never place limits or boundaries on what I will review, after all variety is the spice of life. So, expect the unexpected from time to time. Originally from the UK, I now reside in the U.S. I currently also write for HorrorHound magazine in the U.S. as well as contribute to Shock Horror magazine in the UK.
Belfast born, Wayne Simmons, loitered with intent around the horror genre before publication of his debut novel in 2008.
Wayne’s fiction has since been published in the UK, Austria, Germany, Spain, Turkey and North America. He's penned reviews and interviews for various online zines, including Zombiehamster.com and Crime Scene NI, and now hangs at the Lair of Filth.
Wayne currently lives in Wales with his ghoulfiend and a Jack Russel terrier called Dita.
Look out for Wayne at various music festivals, genre and tattoo cons or at his website:
Born, reared and stuck in a little town called Portadown in County Armagh, N Ireland. I’ve been selling books and magazines to buy music and go to gigs for over 20 years, working as a manager for Ireland’s biggest bookseller.
I have a very wide taste in music and will give almost anything a listen. Being just over forty hasn’t mellowed my taste in music nor slowed my attendance at gigs, which I try to go to as often as possible.
I see music as being very subjective – one man’s fun is another’s hell, and just because you don’t like something it doesn’t mean it’s no good, and all that... Honesty’s the best policy so if I don’t like something it’ll be obvious, but you’ll also know all about it if I do.
Musician and supporter of the true underground scene. No trends, only real devotion! Vicious/atmospheric black metal, dark evil-soaked death metal and heavy riff-laden doom are my personal favorites, but the extreme metal genre is always filled with excellent bands regardless of style. NO POSERS ALLOWED.
