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 33

We’re better We’re better late than never this week on the Necrocasticon. This chapter is our yearly review of the new Star Wars movie, complete with SPOILERS! So if you have not seen Star Wars, go away after the first 30 minutes. We don’t want to hear it. If you haven’t seen Star Wars and have ADHD, by all means stick around for the whole show, you’ll forget anyway.

Tom, Scott and Az are joined by Smokin’ Walt in a can, The Head Hauntress from Archivists Bet on Sexy Witches & The Reponerds, Liz Gray and a man of few words in the ring when he’s known as Sgt Fury, Dan Roberts.

Rian Johnson has polarized the Star Wars fan base with a movie that is getting stellar reviews from critics, yet mixed reactions from the fanboys and fangirls of a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away. Are they crying for the sake of crying? Or do the film’s detractors have legitimate arguments?

We’ll discuss all of that, plus give our opinions on the blockbuster Episode Eight of the Star Wars Saga, The Last Jedi.

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.

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.

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.
