Necrocasticon, where we blend horror fiction with heavy metal. Each week we'll find a common link between a horror property and heavy metal music and talk about it. Our esteemed panel of metal and all things that are scary includes our host and moderator; fledgling horror writer, veteran podcaster and internet journalist Token Tom Clark, musician Maxx Axxe, horror fan Walt Hades and artist, musician and all around creepy guy, Azriel Mordecai. Not to mention, each week we'll feature special guests from the worlds or hard rock music and horror fiction!
The Necrocasticon Volume 666 Chapter 31
Our guest is Matt Schroeder, who happens to be the guitarist for East Coast Kiss tribute band, Strutter. It’s a laugh fest you don’t want to miss, and it’s also very educational, as it turns out Matt is a music teacher! But that’s not all. Walt reviews The Wretched. Tom loves Diamond Head’s new pandemic cover, and Mr. Scott Reacts to last week’s The Mandalorian.
Nate Carson from Witch Mountain joins the guys this week to talk metal, and it’s a fun interview you don’t want to miss. Walt reviews the latest pandemic covers, and he revisits Lone Wolf and Cub, an inspiration for The Mandalorian. All this plus Tom was a guest at a virtual event for a regional library last week, and we’ve got some of the audio from the interview for you.
This week we remember Ken Hensley, the songwriting force behind classic metal band Uriah Heep. We also talk to the former head writer of Pro Wrestling Illustrated, Dan Murphy about his new book, a horror novel called The Thing In The Water. The guys review a bunch of music for you this week. This chapter is oozing with metal!
We’ve got a fantastic interview with the guy who created the Final Destination franchise, Jeffrey Reddick. His directorial debut, Don’t Look Back, is getting noticed. You don’t want to miss this interview with the man Tom calls the Gay Jordan Peele. Then we dip into the well that is the 80’s for a revelation regarding the infamous PMRC, and their top 15 nasty songs.
This week we interview the director and writer of THEY REACH, Sylas Dall, along with his young stars, Mary Madelyn Roe and Eden Campbell. We also remember Sean Connery, Dan reviews They Reach in Wrestler vs. B-movie, Mr. Scott reacts to the season premiere of The Mandalorian, Skip warms up the caboose, and Tom gives his two cents on the latest from Armored Saint.
It’s Halloween weekend, and what better way to celebrate the pagan holiday than with folklore. And the biggest, and baddest of all the folklore cryptoids is none other than Bigfoot. Tom and Skip welcome producer, director, writer of Sasquatch Among Wildmen, Darcy Weir, to the campfire.
