Necrocasticon Volume 3 Chapter 36

Welcome to Volume 3 Chapter 36 of the Necrocasticon. This week host Tom Clark and our panel of metal and horror experts invite Project Entertainment Network show host, Mr. Frank Edler of Bizzong to join us.

Tom, Az, Walt, Scott and Frank bring you the THE GREAT METAL DEBATE! What was the origin of Heavy Metal? Can we narrow it down to one? Is it a song? A band? An artist? Or is it a combination of all of these? We’ll reverse engineer the music genre that made this podcast possible.

Plus, we remember Fast Eddie Clarke, Tom revisits David Cronenberg’s Scanners, and Az gives us another song off the Omega EP!

The Necrocasticon Volume 3 Chapter 35

Volume 3 chapter 35 of the Necrocasticon goes back in time to 1979. No, it’s not a bad Smashing Pumpkins song. It’s a year that established itself as one of the best ever in the horror genre… and heralded the era of 80’s hair metal.

Tom, Scott and Az dig into movies from Alien to Salem’s Lot! Books from King, Herbert, Saul & Andrews! Bands like Motorhead, Scorpions and Triumph putting out important formative albums in metal. All that AND we give the axe blade to a clown.

The Necrocasticon Volume 3 Chapter 31

This is Volume 3 Chapter 31 of the Necrocasticon, where we blend horror and heavy metal like a twisty ice cream cone.

Tom, Scott, Walt and Az are getting Teutonic this week. They’re going back to the Fatherland as we get in depth on the SCORPIONS and their brothers in arms in German metal. Sodom! Kreator! Accept! The quality metal that has come from Germany over the decades is unmatched and we’ll get in depth on what you should be listening to from the land of beer and sausage.

But that’s not all. Just in time for your last minute Holiday shopping, we have our 3rd annual LAST MINUTE HOLIDAY BUYER’S GUIDE! Yes, tonight we reveal our favorite movies, books, games, songs, TV shows and everything else horror and metal centric from 2017 that you may want to look into as gift for those on your holiday shopping list.

The Necrocasticon Volume 3 Chapter 30

Welcome to Volume 3 Chapter 30 of the Necrocastion. Your host, author Tom Clark is joined by most of our panel of metal and horror experts. Mr. Scott is here, as is Azriel Mordecai. Walt is off tending to his family this week!

It’s a very special Necrocasticon, or maybe we should call it the Nosferoticon, as we give our audio commentary on Nosferatu. The classic adaptation of Bram Stoker’s Dracula. That technically ISN’T an adaptation of Bram Stoker’s Dracula.

Almost lost to history and only existing because someone broke the law, Nosferatu was a controversial film when it was released.

For our purposes, we’ve obtained a copy from Archive dot Org. You can find our cut here! Just sync up with us on the podcast and you’re ready to go! Watching the movie isn’t required to listen, either!

The Necrocasticon Volume 3 Chapter 29

Welcome to Volume 3 Chapter 29 of the Necrocasticon. This week, special guest panelist, Metal Bob Staffa, metal historian and upstate NY radio personality, joins us to debate who is greater, Ozzy or Dio?

We discuss their tenures in Black Sabbath versus their contributions to metal and everything in between. It’s a no-win war this week for Tom Clark, Mr. Scott, Smoking Walt Ball and Azriel Mordecai.

But that’s not all. Walt and Tom take a bunch of anti-depressants to offer you a spoiler free review of Mike Lombardo’s I’m Dreaming of a White Doomsday. The indy film has been making waves in the festival circuit and we’ll tell you if it’s worth seeking out.

Az heads back to the new and improved Mortuary, going east to west with some Armageddon Dildos, and Mr. Scott gives the axe blade to a metal guy who just can’t stop being a dick.

Necrocasticon Volume 3 Chapter 28

Volume 3 Chapter 28 of the Necrocasticon remembers a couple legends this week. First, we eulogize Malcolm Young, of AC/DC fame.

Then we turn our attention to the sage of horror cinema… John Carpenter. Carpenter molded an era with his films and his scores. Director, producer, writer and composer. His legacy is our main topic this week as Mr. Scott takes the helm while Tom Clark goes on assignment to see John Carpenter perform live.

The Head Hauntress, Elizabeth Gray joins us for the second week in a row, filling in on our panel for Tom. The guys drag her into the mortuary to see if we can translate what Azriel Mordecai has going on down there, and Walter Ball set the Smoker up In Flames.

Necrocasticon Volume 3 Chapter 26

Welcome to Volume 3 Chapter 26 of the Necrocasticon, the podcast that makes a big bloody smoothie out of horror & heavy metal. This week Tom, Walt, Scott and Az are back in the studio after taking Halloween off to give you the first Chapter of the Necrocasticon Presents. We’ve got to catch up on some reviews, a few movies, TV shows and albums have hit since we last met. All that and Tom interviews Arizona hardcore scream-o metal heads American Standards. He talked to vocalist Brandon Kellum and guitarist Corey Skowronski a few weeks ago and the three of them get into music and horror. Az takes us into the mortuary for some Medieval Babes… and Mr Scott gives the ax handle to a group of blood thirsty cannibals.

The Necrocasticon Volume 3 Chapter 24

Welcome to Volume 3 Chapter 24 of the Necrocasticon, Project Entertainment Network’s podcast that blends horror and heavy metal with common connection, usually.

Our panel of metal and horror experts were live at Authorcon at the Holiday Inn in Oneonta, NY over the weekend, and it seemed like we had a revolving door of guests. A record 7 guests, at that, on this Necrocasticon!

They join Tom Clark, Walt Ball and guest panelist The Viking, Brian Burton, from our sister podcast, The Curtain Jerkers. This is a special edition, peeps & perps, with no actual topic other than the horror and dark fantasy writer guests at Authorcon.

Sideshow freak Len Oddity joins authors Dwight Kemper, Erin Kelly, Solon Tsangaras aka Little Stevie, Greg “JG” Faherty, Patrick Freivald and Mindy Baker as they walk on through the convention floor.

Metal fans have no fear, because Tom and Greg talk guitars and Little Stevie gives us an Uncle Fester track for your listening pleasure.

Welcome to Volume 3 Chapter 23 of the Necrocasticon. We’re hitting the festival and con trail again, this week and we’re talking to Authorcon promoter Tiffani-Beth and, from Ithaca Fantastik, our friend, horror buff and screen writer Mike Skavarla!

But that’s not all. Walt goes digital and heads to Mordor in the smoker, Az has something Epica crying for us in the mortuary, I’ll tell you about a couple of new streaming shows, Lore and Mindhunter, and if you should be binging them or not, and Mr. Scott gives the ax to some one who deserves it.

And make sure you come visit Tom Clark & Walter Ball at our Project Entertainment Network Booth at Authorcon on Saturday 10/21/17 between 9:00 am & 5:00 pm at the Holiday Inn 5206 NY 23 Oneonta, NY!

This week we’ve got something special for you, as hosts Tom Clark, Mr. Scott, Smoking Walt Ball and Azriel Mordecai welcome film enthusiast John Cybart to their panel for The Great Halloween Debate. Our panel is divided into 2 camps… Pro Carpenter and Pro Zombie as we debate the merits, and negatives, of both films.

Plus, we have a preview of Freddy Fest with promoter Jeff Meyer and Tom reviews Ayla, Elias Ganster’s latest film, a very dark and morose movie Tom describes as beautiful from the shadows. And finally, Az revisits the Electric Hellfire Club and shouts at the devil in Mordecai’s Mortuary.

Necrocasticon Volume 3 Chapter 21

Welcome to Volume 3 Chapter 21 of the Necrocasticon, the podcast that blends horror and heavy metal properties with a common connection. It’s part two of our favorite firsts in metal & horror, and this week we focus on the horror, as we discuss the seminal auteur freshman entries by some the greatest in the genre.

We’re down a couple panelist, as Az is celebrating his birthday and Walt is on assignment to let us know how metal Rick Springfield is. That’s OK, Tom Clark and Mr. Scott are joined by a brother in horror podcasting, Ryan Tutolo. Ryan is a host on All You Need Is Blood, and he’s here to share with us his favorite first time horror director and author. Mary Shelly, The Boys, Argento, Bill Paxton and more!

But that’s not all. Az isn’t here, but that isn’t stopping us from eating birthday cake in the Mortuary, Walt isn’t here for the smoker, but Tom has some things to say about Gerald’s Game, and Mr. Scott gives a posthumous ax handle.
