Trailer Feedback: Herschell Gordon Lewis’ BloodMania (International Trailer)

The Godfather of Gore is back with an offer we can’t refuse.

After six long years since 2009’s “The Uh-Oh Show,” director Herschell Gordon Lewis will be giving us what is being billed as “a new horror anthology” and we couldn’t be more excited.

BloodMania doesn’t give us many clues as to what the plot is other than it revolving around an all-girl rock band, murder (of course) and apparently “the worst day of Brewster Bricabrac’s life.”

Seeing as Bricabrac (who we can assume is the film’s main protagonist) gets run over by a steamroller and has one of his eyes gouged out it has to be.

Other than copious amounts of gore set to Edvard Grieg’s “In the Hall of the Mountain King”, there is some kind of demon/poltergeist lurking about and a disgusting old man who’s severed head winds up in an air vent. There’s also two women making out in a shower (which we can safely assume will die during the feature) and a pretty hilarious interaction between two homeless men (because why not?).

From the man who brought us such classics as “The Wizard of Gore,” “The Gore Girls” and “Blood Feast,” “BloodMania” looks to be a fit for every gore fan. While it won’t be up for an Oscar or mentioned in the same sentence as “Titanic” or “Good Will Hunting,” “BloodMania” will certainly cater to the niche audience that Lewis intended it for.

Band of the Week: Temple of Dagon

Awaken the almighty Cthulu with California’s Temple of Dagon.

A band whose lyrics are centered around H.P. Lovecraft’s tales of terror, Temple of Dagon unleashes a unique breed of metal blending death metal, thrash metal, doom, crust punk and New York influenced hardcore grooves.

Taking their name from Lovecraft’s “Dagon” story, the band formed in 2009 and released “The Book of Azathoth” EP, which contained a more primitive sound. Temple of Dagon would later perfect their sound on 2014’s “Rituals of the Deep,” their first and only full length record to date.

On January 22, Temple of Dagon announced via Facebook that they will be playing the OC Cruststock Volume 3 festival from June 26 to June 28. Tickets can be obtained at this link.

Band of the Week: Exhumed

Exhumed is a death metal band from San Jose, CA that will sonically tear you to shreds.

Boasting a total of six albums, Exhumed is fronted by vocalist/guitarist Matt Harvey, bassist turned guitarist Bud Burke, Mike Hamilton on drums, and rounding out the bass is a guy named Slime who also fronts the Philadelphia death thrashers known as Coffin Dust.

America’s answer to Carcass, Exhumed was started by Harvey in 1990 and signed to Relapse Records in 1998. Their early work consisted of short, technical grindcore that focused on ridiculously gory lyrics. If you need a visual, check out the cover of their first two albums “Gore Metal” and “Slaughtercult”.

Around the release of their third album, “Anatomy is Destiny;” Exhumed began to shift towards longer groove oriented songs, transitioning further into the realm of death metal – not unlike Carcass had done in their own career.

In 2005, Exhumed released a covers album a la Metallica with “Gabage Daze Re-Regurgitated”.

2011 was a turning point in Exhumed as the band had finally begun to gather some mainstream attention with the release of “All Guts, No Glory,” embarking on tours with Napalm Death, Cannibal Corpse and others. Exhumed then released their sixth and most recent album “Necrocracy” in 2013.

2014 has been an interesting year for Exhumed as they have just wrapped up a tour with Carcass and Florida death metal legends Obituary. They are currently playing select dates with Aborted, Origin and Miasmal on the “Hell Over Europe” tour from November 20-December 20.

In February 2015 Exhumed will be going into the void  on the “Through Space and Grind” tour. Iron Reagan, Black Crown Initiate, Napalm Death and Voivod. Dayglo Abortions, Phobia and Ringworm will be joining them on select dates as special guests.
