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

This week usual host and moderator, Tom Clark is off, but Mr. Scott has stepped up to the plate and boldly takes us where our panelists have gone… the first time?

That’s right, on the heels of Scott seeing Metallica for the first time, we recollect our first times seeing horror and metal, either in the theater or on the stage, respectively. Scott, Smoking Walt Ball and Azriel Mordecai bring in our friend Axel Lennox to help out with the discussion.

Do we share some of the same experiences as you? Listen to find out.

But that’s not all.

Walt reaches into infinity in the Smoker as he reviews the latest from Dragonforce, Az has Alien Sex Fiends in the mortuary and Scott gives the axe to a sicko in metal that deserves it.

Welcome to Volume 3 Chapter 1 of the Necrocasticon, Project Entertainment Network’s Podcast the blends horror and heavy metal properties with a common connection.

Your host, writer and podcaster Tom Clark, is casting aside token monickers this season, along with our panel of horror and metal experts at Project Entertainment Network.

The former Maxx Axe, aka Mr. Scott Groverston, Super Fan Boy Smoking Walt Ball has finally climbed out of hell and Azriel Mordecai is still Az, because, well, that’s his legal name.

We’re starting off our third season by getting back to our roots here at the Necrocasticon, streamlining things with a fine tooth, razor sharp comb. We’re about commonalities between specific genre media properties, so this week we’re blending together 3 of them as we talk about the ALIEN film franchise, the career of Glenn Danzig and the art of HR Geiger.

How do they all link together?

We’ll tell you how, among other things as we talk about the past, present and future of what are, without a doubt, fixtures in pop culture, as well as the horror or metal genres.

But that’s not all.

Walt reviews more Life of Agony, Az gets violent in the mortuary with 5 Caskets to Cairo and Scott gives the Axe Handle to a surprising victim that very much deserves it.

Necrocasticon Volume 2 Chapter 50

Necrocasticon Volume 2 Chapter 49

Welcome to Volume 2 Chapter 49 of The Necrocasticon, project Entertainment Network’s podcast that blends horror and heavy metal properties wit a common connection. Your host, writer Token Tom Clark is joined by our panel of metal and horror experts at Project Entertainment Network, Maxx Axe and Smoking Walt Hades. Absent this week, though, is our resident creepy guy, Azriel Mordecai, who’s under the weather. This week we’re about the short and sweet and the preview side of things. How so you ask? Horror films, and sometimes novels, often rely on short films, called trailers, basically 2 minute or so long previews of the flicks, to create an interest in the final product. Many trailers are classic and have stood the test of time, while some others gave too much away and killed a film at the box office. Metal and music in the 80’s was the same way, with the advent of the popularity of music videos, which at one time were solely used by record companies to sell an artist. Then came MTV. Walt tells us what he’s been watching in his 365 movies in 365 Days project, Maxx Gives someone the axe in his new segment, and Az is in the mortuary sleeping as he recovers from being sick, so shhhh. We won’t go there this week. Or will we?

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.

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.
