Narcoleptic Sorcerer in the House of Eventual Doom - A Manchester Morgue Compilation

Today, thanks to a weird snow/ice storm I got to miss going to work. For most people, this is a good thing. Not me. Since I need to buy a new car very soon, missing a day of work is kind of a nuisance. I personally hate missing work due to bad weather because it combines two things I hate the most, losing money and calling a place to get out of doing something.

Oh well, the good news was that I was able to finish up a compilation I've been working on. I call this one Narcoleptic Sorcerer in the House of Eventual Doom. Because this dude is clearly asleep, and this lady - while her demise is surely imminent - will probably have a bit of time to kill before her offing. This kind of creative stupidity is the result of reading Famous Monsters of Filmland while watching Monster Chiller Horror Theatre on SCTV.

This compilation features songs that share a name with a movie (like The Thing With No Heads, Novelty Cigarette Lighter of Doom and Werewolf in Unnecessarily Short Gym Shorts before it). The variety on display here will probably give most people a headache. Jumping from Zao to early Ministry to Genghis Tron to Dee D. Jackson all in the span of about 80 minutes can't be good for you brain. But, if you're like me and you are on the verge of dementia, this should be a fun listen.

Looking at the forecast for Sunday and Wednesday I'll probably have those days off also (crap!), so I should be able to finish up a couple others I'm working on, tentatively titled Mall Madness Massacre and Mummy Came In My Room.

Ministry - Revenge
The Lillingtons - Caveman
God is an Astronaut - Zodiac
Zao - Autopsy
Omega Lithium - Stigmata
Abgott - Epitaph
Within Temptation - The Howling
The Birthday Massacre - To Die For
Glös - Sunshine
Artesia - Invitation
Constants - The Nameless
Ryashon - The Warrior
Agents of Oblivion - Dead Girl (Acid Bath Cover)
Los Straitjackets - Rockula (movie here, music here
Amorphis - Alone
Genghis Tron - Badlands
The Damned - She
The Ghastly Ones - Werewolves on Wheels
The Dead Elvi - Gothica
Scientist - Ghost of Frankenstein
Dee D. Jackson - Meteor Man

Couple of notes:

The Birthday Massacre - To Die For - Shares a title with several movies, the Nicole Kidman movie from 1995, the vampire movie that was in Fangoria a lot in the early 90s that nobody has actually seen, and even some kind of homosexual ghost film. Not that there's anything wrong with that. I know I put The Birthday Massacre on a lot of these things, I own a bit of stock in the band.

Constants - The Nameless - Okay, so the actual title is Los sin nombre, but it still counts. If you like this one, Constants album The Foundation, The Machine, The Ascension is actually available for free from Gimmesound . It's pretty excellent, worth the minute to sign up for an account there. Also check out Junius from the same label.

The Dead Elvi - Gothica - I just remembered the movie title is spelled Gothika, but I've already gotten it uploaded, and it's a rather good song, so I'm going to just let the 'c' for 'k' mix up stand.

Abgott - Epitaph - Shares a title with the 1987 Joseph Merhi film. Merhi has directed and produced a shit-ton of low rent schlock like Fresh Kill, The Newlydeads and Magic Kid.

Dee D. Jackson - Meteor Man - Jackson's song came out in 1978, Robert Townsend's film came out in 1993, I think Robbie owes someone some money.

Genghis Tron - Badlands - These guys are insane, with some of the most menacing vocals I've ever heard - from a man named Mookie no less. Sadly being a brief instrumental piece this song doesn't show off their full badassery, be sure to check out their album Board Up The House. For example (really cool video, too):

The life of a repo chick is always intense?

The Good:
Repo Chick is kind of a babe.
Marcelino from Seinfeld is a major character.

The Bad:
Green Screen. So much green screen.
Those computer generated "car driving" shots - holy shit, really?

The Ugly:
The huge terrifying broad from the totally real, and not at all fake show Operation Repo makes an appearance.

House of the Devil Coming Soon To DVD, Blu-Ray and....VHS?

This might be the coolest DVD extra I've ever seen - and it's not even on the DVD. The DVD can be purchased bundled with a VHS copy, complete with over-sized clam shell Gorgon case. Sure, this idea is gimmicky as hell and it's a bit pointless to own two copies of the same movie (this coming from the guy who currently has three copies of The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly), but as a lover of old VHS cover art I don't think I can resist making this purchase.

I snatched the above photo from the Mondo Tees Blog, where you can find a complete review of the packaging with several more photos.

Sorcery - Stunt Rock

I'm not sure how many out there are still frequenting this site given my erratic posting schedule over the past few months. Can't blame you, I post 5 things in two days, say I'll be posting more frequently from now on, then I don't post anything for two weeks, who knows what the hell is going on.

Sorry about that, but for those of you still checking back occasionally here's the music to the 1978 Brian Trenchard-Smith (BMX Bandits, Night of the Demons 2, Leprechaun 4 - and these are his good movies*) film Stunt Rock. The music was done by the band Sorcery (out of L.A., not the Sorcery of Chicago)

01. Sacrifice
02. Wizard's Council
03. Talking To The Devil
04. Burned Alive
05. Book Of Magic
06. Stuntrocker
07. Mark Of The Beast
08. The Bird Song
09. Wicked City
10. Woman

*I kid, because I love.

Gama Bomb - Tales From The Grave In Space

I hope everyone out there had fun over Christmas/New Years. I'm sure some of you have noticed that I took a bit of a hiatus from posting here. No reason, I wasn't out of town, and I'm not a big celebrator of holidays or anything, Winter just seems to screw up my system and makes me extra lazy.

I'm going to upload some stuff to post later today, but until then, why not check out Gama Bomb's latest album Tales From The Grave In Space, which Earache is offering up absolutely for free. Gama Bomb is a British band that play a raunchy brand of thrash, with a sense of humor and goofy ass song titles like Mussolini Mosh and Mummy Invasion.

Just click the link and enter an email address. You can use whatever your junk email address is, once you enter the address a Rapidshare link pops up, so you don't have to worry about waiting for a link to show up in your email.

And for no reason, a shot of Gama Bomb being sample with the resource hogging Zune software:
