Just released on DVD & Blu-Ray this week (reviewed here from the limited 3-Disc DVD/Blu-ray/Digital Copy Combo Pack) is RACE TO WITCH MOUNTAIN.

51nscHt7oJL. SL160 With the release of their self-titled major label debut (out now on Virgin), Las Vegas' Adelitas Way brings a storied past into the mainstream psyche.

Formed after frontman Rick DeJesus bounced from Philly to L.A. (for a VH1 show, no less) and to Vegas where he lived in his car for three months, the band takes it's moniker from a Mexican bar where the band sought refuge after being robbed by corrupt cops. Turns out, "Adelitas Bar" was in fact, a brothel.

CARDIAC ARREST - CADAVEROUS PRESENCE (Review)

Written by
41NbHlqUKTL. SL160 I usually get a little bit leary of when people hand me things to "check out" at a convention. Regardless of the material, I always manage to get to it, even when it takes months to happen. Such is the case with this album, CADAVEROUS PRESENCE, the 2008 release by Chicago's Cardiac Arrest. The CD was given to me back in February by guitarist Tom Knizner.

LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT - AMONG FLIES (Album Review)

Written by
51Jj7Ztg9yL. SL160 After a succesful run on their self-released EP, THE ROAD LEADS TO NOWHERE, New Mexico's LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT have returned with AMONG FLIES, their first full-length set of horror-influenced metal for Siege of Amida/Ferret Records.

wzboxsetI was first exposed to the music of WHITE ZOMBIE through a blind buy of their 1989 Caroline Records release MAKE THEM DIE SLOWLY (the spine of the CD oddly says “Let Them Die Slowly”). At the time, I didn’t really enjoy it, and I later went on to trade in the disc at a local record store in favor of something a little more “metal.”
