THE MARSHMALLOW GHOSTS 7"

Written by
grave046 100'Tis the season for all things spooky, and this Halloween-themed 7-inch from Chicago's Graveface Records is a welcome addition to the seasonal playlist. The debut from The Marshmallow Ghosts (a project featuring members of The Appleseed Cast, Casket Girls, Dreamend, and Black Moth Super Rainbow), this self-titled vinyl release is more soundscape than song, but something worth checking out.

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.
