“This is the most bad ass band I ever heard in my life. Every musician has a signature, Voivod had four. Voivod sounded like no one else. They are one of a kind.” – Dave Grohl (from bonus interview) MVD Visual is proud to announce the worldwide DVD release of Tatsumaki: Voivod in Japan 2008 on November 17, 2009.  

by Todd Matthy One of the most successful ways to bring new readers to comics has been through licensed properties. Some of the greatest comics of all time have been based on licenses. (Example: GI Joe) One of my favorite comics currently on the racks is Marvel’s book based on Stephen King’s The Dark Tower.  Done as several interconnecting limited series, The Dark Tower comics use the novels as framework to tell new stories based around events referenced in the novels. The success of these books has led me to believe a similar method can be applied to J.R.R Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings.

by Todd Matthy In 1984 Marvel Comics released The Transformers comic book and it was a success. However, Marvel was initially weary of the new concept and decided to give the series a shot in the arm by having Marvel characters guest star in an issue. This practice was not new; such licensed books as Micronauts and Shogun Warriors often had guest stars or made guest appearances with Marvel characters. Transformers number three is one such comic and it guest stars none other than the Amazing, Spectacular, and Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man.

By Todd Matthy With the release of Zack Snyder’s Dawn of the Dead a blight fell upon pop culture. That blight is zombies. Since 2005, everyone and their sister has done or released a comic or movie based around zombies. Marvel Zombies, The Walking Dead, Zombies of Mass Destruction, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, The Corpse Bride, World War Z, Shaun of the Dead, Planet Terror, anything Resident Evil related, the Army of Darkness comics, Blackest Night President Evil (starring Obama against Zombies), and who knows what else I omitted. Enough already! I am sick to death of zombies.

by Todd Matthy Last night All That Remains and Lacuna Coil graced an excited and fired up New York City crowd at the Fillmore at Irving Plaza. I arrived after the two opening acts in time for Lacuna Coil to take the stage. Lacuna Coil was great. The crowd roared the second Cristina Scabbia and Andrea Ferro took the stage. I was very impressed with the harmonizing of Cristina and Andrea. Every note and lyric they sang together was perfect and a second or pitch off. The star of the show, obviously, was Cristina.

Influential Death Metallists, Oppressor, Get Anthologized With “The Solstice of Agony and Corrosion” Mortal Music and MVD Audio are proud to announce the release of Oppressor – The Solstice of Agony and Corrosion on November 3rd worldwide. Despite being listed as an influence by such renowned metal acts as God Forbid and Shadows Fall, the Chicago, IL-based Oppressor largely fell under the metallic radar during their years as an active band (1991-1999). But now, ten years after they ceased to be, highlights from all three of Oppressor’s studio albums will be highlighted on the forthcoming fourteen-track compilation, The Solstice of Agony and Corrosion. Since all of the group’s albums...

Stratovarius Review by Todd Matthy How do you talk about a concert for a band your not familiar with? That’s the dilemma I faced at the Stratovarius concert last night. My familiarity with Stratovarius is brief. I’ve listened to them before (even played them on my college radio show) and liked their Dream Theater meets classical sound, but for some reason I never followed through on exploring them.

Die-hard Slayer fans, get ready. Slayer’s World Painted Blood, the band’s highly-anticipated new album set for a November 3 release (American Recordings), will initially ship with four special collector’s edition CD covers. Each of the four covers will display one-fourth of a provocative continental map illustrated with human skulls and bones; when placed together, the four images form a complete and grisly map of the world. All four of the initial CD packages will include a special blood-red, see-through top panel with the map displayed beneath it. The World Painted Blood Deluxe Edition will have its own special layout of the map cover art and will be in a double-digipak housed in a blood-red,...
