Necrocasticon Volume 2 Chapter 45

Welcome to Volume 2 Chapter 45 of the Necrocasticon, Project Entertainment Network’s podcast that blends horror and heavy metal properties with a common connection.

This week your host, Token Tom Clark and our panel of horror and metal experts, Maxx Axe and Smoking Walt Hades minus a convention appearing Azriel Mordecai, are all about Judas Priest. The veteran band with a nearly 40 year career in metal. Their songs are metal anthems. Their album covers are iconic. And yes, Mastodon, Judas Priest is metal and so is, well, Mastodon.

But that’s not all. We’ve also got a few things cooking in Walt’s smoker, we trespass in Az’s mortuary and find a yak, and Maxx Axe brings us this week in metal and horror history.

Necrocasticon Volume 2 Chapter 44

Welcome to volume 2 chapter 44 of the Necrocasticon, Project Entertainment Network’s podcast that blends horror and heavy metal properties with a common connection. Your host, writer and podcaster Token Tom Clark is joined, as always, by our panel of metal & horror experts at Project Entertainment Network. Musician Maxx Axe and musician and artist, Azriel Mordecai are alone this week, as Smoking Walt has some things to attend to. But that’s OK.

This week we’re going ape for the original big monster, King Kong. With the release KONG: Skull Island, we’re going to talk about the American national treasure that is King Kong. One part sci-fi thriller, one part giant monster movie, one part romantic adventure. From 1933 to now, no other big monster has captured our hearts like Kong. Well, for those of us without a lizard infatuation, that is.

In order for us to get into the brass tacks of this, we’re enlisting the aid of fellow Project Entertainment Network show host, veteran broadcaster and big monster expert, Jim Adams. Jim’s show Monster Attack can be heard on the network m and he gives his unique insight into all things Kong in a chat he had with Token Tom.

Az is goes to the mortuary for a super group, Tom steps in for Walt’s smoker with his own BBQ review of Edge of Paradise’s new EP, Alive, and Maxx Axe and Revelation 13 bring us this week in metal and horror history.

Necrocasticon Vol 2 Chapter 43

Welcome to volume 2, chapter 43 of the Necrocasticon, Project Entertainment Network’s podcast that blends horror and heavy metal properties with a common connection.

This week, your host, veteran journalist and podcaster and fledgling horror writer Token Tom Clark, is once again joined by our panel of metal and horror experts at Project Entertainment Network as we talk about the life and times of the late character actor, Bill Paxton. But you see, this week, musician Maxx Axe, uber fan Smoking Walt Hades and musician and artist Azriel Mordecai aren’t alone, oh no. As our topic is one of great importance, we felt it required a few more panelists.

With that in mind, joining us, from our sister podcast The Curtain Jerkers, is movie critic and freelance journalist, Steve Mesa. Steve work can be seen in places such as the Miami Herald. But Steve isn’t alone.

Bill Paxton was so big, we brought a big time Hollywood screenwriter on board to help flush out our talk. That’s right, we have brought back to the Necrocasticon one of our favorite guests, writer Mike Skvarla, the scribe behind the indy hit, Love in the Time of Monsters.

From Weird Science to Titanic, from Big Love to Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Bill Paxton has been the go to guy in genre fiction and more on the silver screen. His career spanned nearly 40 years, and we’re here to salute the man that brought life to characters as diverse as Private Hudson in Aliens, or the Dad in Frailty. It’s an hour of talk about the man that was Bill Paxton.

Welcome to volume 2 chapter 42 of the Necrocasticon, Project Entertainment Network’s podcast that blends horror and heavy metal properties with a common connection. Host Token Tom Clark is joined by our panel of metal and horror experts at Project Entertainment Network. This time around Maxx Axe, Smoking Walt Hades and Azriel Mordecai are closing out Women in Horror Month by talking about the female bad asses of horror and metal. From Sigourney Weaver’s Ripley to Charlize Theron’s Furiosa, from Kate Beckinsale to Milla Jovovich, horror has its share of bad ass actresses. Metal has had it’s share of women you best not trifle with, like Joan Jett, Lita Ford, Wendy O. Williams and Doro Pesch. And what a better way to top that all off, than by featuring an interview with a true bad ass, Tabbetha Winner. Tabbetha is the vocalist for death metal band Winter’s Burden. A death metal band with a female singer? Yes. It’s not unheard of (Does Otep ring a bell?) for a woman to front a death metal band, and Tabitha is joined by the band’s guitarist, Claudio Montano for a frank discussion with Maxx. But that’s not all. Az has a Dark Funeral, Walt reviews Overkill’s The Grinding Wheel, and Maxx Axe & Revelation 13 bring us this week in metal & horror history.

Welcome to Volume 2 chapter 35 of the Necrocasticon, Project Entertainment Network’s podcast that blends horror and heavy metal properties with a common connection. Your host, writer Token Tom Clark is joined by our panel of horror and metal experts over at Project Entertainment Network. Maxx Axe, Smoking Walt Hades and Azriel Mordecai. are going back to the 90’s this week, to discuss a year that was not the greatest year for anything. Yes, it was horrifying in 1994 and the 90’s sucked, but nothing sucked worse than 1994, the year of Forrest Gump, Ace of Bass and a laundry list of bad pop music. There were some gems hidden in that fateful year of monkey dung, and we’re here to celebrate them. With the likes of Korn & Marilyn Manson, Pantera and Soundgarden, John Carpenter and Stephen King, 1994 had a few decent entries into the annals of metal & horror history. Plus, we dig into our library of panels from 2016 and bring you publisher and author Tom Monteleone’s reading from Scares That Care 2016. But that’s not all.
