HOLIDAY HORRORS

0

Hey Fiends,

Hope you’re all having an awesome holiday season. If you listened to the show last night, then you know we’re getting in a frightfully festive mood. The annual ‘Killer Christmas’ concert is this Friday and Saturday at State Theatre. So we wanted to get you in the spirit of the annual event by spinning some of our favorite metal (and twisted) Christmas songs. We only had an hour so we exhumed some legendary ‘Holiday Horrors’ that have become standard holiday fare in our Hallowed Halls since our inception back in 2002. We also kept with our annual tradition of naming the ‘Top 10 Christmas Horror Films’ of all time (see below)..All in all, it was a night of screaming seasonal celebration. Perfect warmup for the Killer Christmas concert this weekend. This will be my last blog until January 6th, so I’m going to try to squeeze everything in..Here goes

LAST NIGHT’S PLAYLIST…

KING DIAMOND: No Presents For Christmas

KING DIAMOND: Christmas

KRASH KARMA: Nightmare Before Christmas

MAJUR BLUDD: Jingle Bells

AMERICAN DOG: Merry Christmas Asshole

SPINAL TAP: Christmas With The Devil

ONE MAN ARMY: Christmas For The Lobotomizer

ROADSIDE ATTRACTION: What Santa Wants

CHIEF GREENBUD: A Christmas Without Weed

TRANS SIBERIAN ORCHESTRA: Moonlight & Madness / Wizards In Winter

 

*THE TOP 10 CHRISTMAS HORROR FILMS: Yeah, we’re a bit twisted. You must be too because you’re reading this blog. We’re not into the depressing traditional Christmas movies. We’re hardcore horror fans and there are tons of Holiday Horror flicks to give us a monstrous, and Merry Christmas. Here’s our favorite Top 10 fright flicks of this season. Although we didn’t mention it on air last night, I’ll also include some ‘Honorable Mentions’ below, for those of you that just can’t get enough of the seasonal scares..All these films are available on netflix..Here goes

1) SILENT NIGHT DEADLY NIGHT (1984): This movie will always reign supreme as the best Christmas horror film of our time. This will scare the holiday depression right outta ya!! The ultimate ‘Madman In A Santa Suit’ flick..I mean, ‘Linnea Quigley’ get’s impaled on Deer Antlers (classic). This movie was actually pulled from theaters after only one night. I was lucky enough to see it at the movies on opening night..way back then! A MUST SEE!!

2) SANTA’S SLAY (2005): What can you say? Goldburg as a murderous, resurrected Santa. This movie is beyond awesome. It’s hilarious, bloody, and brutal!! Some impressive cameo’s as well, with a ‘killer’ soundtrack. This is also a MUST SEE!!

3) SILENT NIGHT (2012): This Christmas slasher film is also beyond brilliant. It’s a remake of ‘Silent Night Deadly Night’ (sort of). It goes in a different direction, but there are a few scenes that let you know its a remake. Like the impalement on the Deer Antlers (lol) SEE IT!!

4) BLACK CHRISTMAS (1974), BLACK CHRISTMAS (2006): We decided to put both at Number 4. We cannot split up the original and the remake. They both kicked ass equally. The original started the story, and the remake finished it. You have to watch them both

5) CHRISTMAS EVIL (1980): Another one of our favorite Christmas Slashers. You’ll actually cheer for this ‘Madman In A Santa Suit’ though..Also one of the weirdest endings of all the Holiday Horrors. This film is also known as ‘You Better Watch Out’..You ‘better’ SEE IT!!

6) SAINT (2010): Another horrific holiday hit and a twisted masterpiece. It’s about the ‘real’ St. Nick who reappears as a burned and scarred demon. And he’s killing everyone in Amsterdam. The dubbed voices will offer up some comic relief in this seasonal shocker..SEE IT!!

7) RARE EXPORTS (2010): Now this one’s really freaky. The real Santa is exhumed from a giant grave, and his elves go on a murderous rampage. and they’re not so jolly. And they’re not really elves. They are naked old men. This is totally off the rails..You might need medication for this one

8) P2 (2010): This one is unrelenting fear. A deranged Security Guard terrorizes a woman on Christmas Eve. This is a nail biter, and a MUST SEE

9) A CADAVER CHRISTMAS (2011) Nothing says Christmas like a good Zombie movie. This one goes for the jugular. and it also goes for the laughs. Intentionally filmed in ’70’s Grindhouse Fashion’. You gotta add this to your list

10) FALL DOWN DEAD (2007): This Christmas Eve Slasher film cuts deep. UDO KIER as the Slasher. DAVID CARRADINE as a bumbling Security Guard..CLASSIC!! SEE IT!!

HONORABLE MENTIONS..For those that can’t get enough! SILENT NIGHT DEADLY NIGHT PART 5: THE TOY MAKER (1991), DEAD END (2003), MEDIUM RAW: NIGHT OF THE WOLF (2010), SIBLINGS (2004), THE TRAVELLER (2010), ALIEN RAIDERS (2008)

*LIVE EVENTS THIS WEEK:

A Dark Cold Night In The Dungeon

Hey Fiends,

Hope you had a chance to tune in to The Rock Solid Pressure Show last night. It was a ‘chiller’ indeed. We’re celebrating the arrival of cold weather down here in Florida. So we decided to put together a wintry mix of music to freeze the blood. Patty and I are both from the North East, and I anxiously await our cold snaps. Patty hates it though. She’d rather be at the pool. But right now, I’m loving life and I’m in a helluva festive mood. It’s been unusually cold the past few weeks, and today it’s damn near freezing. We just had to celebrate the weather and put together a playlist of frozen delights to hail the arrival of Winter..It went down like this..

Fangsgiving In The Dungeon

0

Hey Fiends,

We had a great time in the Dungeon last night for our annual ‘Fangsgiving’ special. Unfortunately, our post celebration was short lived. After every show, we usually take an hour or two to chat online with some of our regular listeners. We’ve been doing that for years (and years). Last night was totally different. The madness in Ferguson seemed to engulf the nation an hour after our broadcast. I would like to take a minute and reflect my view on the entire mess. I never post my feelings about these types of social issues on facebook because I don’t like to force my views on people that do not care. I DO post my views over here because you come HERE to see how I feel on a bunch of different topics. I basically use facebook for my concert promotions, and of course, to promote The Rock Solid Pressure Show. I’m way to old to be getting into a public pissing match about how I feel on certain topics. So I only post my feelings over here. With that said. This is how I feel about Ferguson.

I feel there is no comparison at all to the Trayvon Martin / George Zimmerman case. And anyone that feels that these cases are related is strongly misguided. I feel there was a great injustice in letting George Zimmerman walk free in that case. Zimmerman went out looking for trouble. He was hunting. I feel it was cold blooded murder and I watched in astonishment when he was aquitted. THAT was an injustice. The Mike Brown case is totally different. This is why, and I’m speaking from experience. I was a bad kid growing up in Jersey. I ran with a bad gang of other wild kids. I had run in’s with crooked cops growing up in my hometown of Northfield. I was so out of control that the entire Police force of Northfield was just waiting for me to turn 18 so they could throw me in jail..Which they did on numerous occasions. But I was not ‘that; out of control to know that when they pointed a gun at me and told me to lie down with my hands behind my head, I was not stupid enough to try to fight them. Of course I was never armed, but that would not stop some backwater local cop from blowing my head off if I did not comply. You would have to be totally insane to try to fight a cop with a gun. Especially if they are backwater hometown cops like in my small city of Northfield, AND in the city of Ferguson.

Mike Brown appeared to be a wild kid like myself. I feel he did not deserve to be killed in the street. That is obviously an injustice. Especially since he was unarmed. But the entire problem lies in the fact that he was being pulled over for shoplifting and he refused to get on the ground. The worst part is that he ‘attacked’ the cop. Ok, so you’re going to shoplift, get caught, then ‘attack’ the cop?. Where I’m from, they would give you 10 years in prison for something like that. How ‘wild’ can you be? How stupid can you be? When you’re dealing with local yokel cops like this, ANYTHING can happen. And unfortunately, it cost this kid his life. If he just would have complied, none of this would have happened. The worst thing is that he faced a shoplifting charge..THAT’S IT!! I blame both parties for this one. Yes, it was excessive to kill someone who is unarmed. Whether he is attacking you or not. You’re a COP. Who the hell trained you ‘Disney World?’. Wilson was over 6 feet tall. Brown was over 6 feet tall. The cop was not trained to fight? If he was so scared for his life, he could have easily got back into his cruiser and waited for backup. RIGHT? But when you’re dealing with ‘these’ types of cops, you should assume, as a perpetrator, that things are not going to be by the book.

I also feel that the feds are going to step in on this matter. Much like they did in the Rodney King case, where the cops were eventually prosecuted. But I do not see this as a racially motivated matter. Whereas the Trayvon Martin case was a clear case of racial injustice. I feel this is a matter of a rogue cop taking the law into his own hands, and a confused kid who wanted to show off his ‘Thug Life’ to his friends who were standing around. I blame ‘both’ parties for this one. I also feel that the lootings and burnings in Ferguson had ‘nothing’ to do with solidarity for Mike Brown’s family. I felt it was just an excuse for a lot of thugs to get a new TV set, and create carnage and destruction in the name of unity for the black community. WHAT MADE MATTERS WORSE is that the announcement from the Grand Jury’s findings were released after 9:00pm. What the hell was this idiot Prosecutor thinking? Did he want his city to burn? Well, he got his wish. In closing on this matter. I feel it’s not over, and I feel the feds will be stepping in. It’s just such a strange case. There was some hard lessons learned here. But the bottom line is this. You CANNOT attack a cop that is arresting you, or even if you’re being questioned. I guess it determines what city this is happening in. But in the town of Ferguson, like my hometown of Northfield. The cops seem like a crooked, close knit bunch. You don’t stand a chance..THAT’S MY TAKE ON IT

Dungeon Fun with CROBOT

0

Hey Fiends

Well, I’m sitting here freezing my ass off, and I’m loving it!! Why you ask? It’s because I live in Florida and I’m sick and tired of sweating my ass off. I’m originally from Jersey and I love this time of year down here in the Sunshine State. A lot of our friends around the country are snowed in, and I’m sure they would switch places with me right now..But I’m diggin the hell outta this cold snap. At least all you ‘snowed-in’ stoners get to do SNOW BONGS!! And speaking of Bongs..On Monday’s broadcast of The Rock Solid Pressure Show, we featured Stoner Sensations ‘CROBOT’ (Wind Up Records). Actually, it was a pre taped interview we did with the band at a recent performance. I honestly have to say, this was one of the most exciting shows I have seen all year. Patty and myself are involved in like 10 national concerts per month. Sometimes more, sometimes less. I’ve been involved in the industry since 1981, so yeah, I’m a bit jaded. It’s extremely hard to impress me these days. But every now and then, something like CROBOT comes along. They gave me a wake up call as to why I’m still in this business. And to why I dedicated my entire life to music.

CROBOT has that 70’s Hard Rock / Early Metal vibe. They put a modern spin on this retro vibe, which is currently all the rage this year. I’ve seen many bands with this type of sound take ‘huge’ signings this year. Being in Radio, Event Coordination, and having affiliations with some of the biggest labels in the world. I’m lucky enough to have all these great new bands sent to me. The ‘stoner’ trend of 2014 was one of the most exciting shifts in music I’ve seen in quite awhile. I’m ‘loving’ the fact that this music is destroying the ‘Indie’ and ‘Hipster’ bands. Being a Metal fan, I was sure I was going to lose the fight with the hipsters. The ‘stoner’ bands are a lot like the forefathers who invented the Metal sound. Yes, these new bands are young, yet their fanbase is comprised of ‘all ages’. CROBOT is leading the pack right now. You might not have heard of the band yet. But by next year, this band will be a household name.

One thing that I noticed at their concert. The band is so energetic and frenetic on stage, it’s impossible to sit down during their performance. I do not believe a human being can sit on their ass and watch this show. Even ‘I’ was propelled off my chair to join the crowd in front of the stage. I don’t even get up for some ‘Death Metal’ shows (lol) Their vocalist (Brandon) could possibly be the best frontman I’ve seen in many many years. It’s the wildest, coolest thing I’ve experienced in a long time. The band was ‘invited’ to tour with ANTHRAX and VOLBEAT, which is coming up. They also have a tour with CHEVELLE coming up. We hung out with the band all night, and we partied quite a bit (wink). The interview we aired was a crazy peek into the bands mindset. Their tunes are a bit dark, and fantasy driven. This is a band after our black hearts. I cannot wait to have this band at State Theatre next year. If they’re not playing ‘only’ arenas by that time. Do yourself a favor and check out CROBOT!! You’ll thank me!!

We’ll also be spilling out our favorite new stoner bands of 2014..You know what to do

*MOVIE REVIEW: THE TOWN THAT DREADED SUNDOWN (2014) So it seems Hollywood has turned their back on ‘real’ horror films this year. Most of the ‘real’ horror films have been driven underground, but they’re out there..Here’s one that will blow your mind..

MY REVIEW: This is actually a sequel to the Drive-In Classic with the same name from 1976. The original was based on actual murders which happened in 1946 in Texarcana. The killer was never caught. The new film is ‘not’ a remake, and introduces a copycat killer. The film is based in 2013. It’s a kickass and highly inventive film. This sequel is so damn good, it reminded me of a Rob Zombie film. This could never be shown at the theaters because it goes against all the politically correct tweenie horror bullshit that has dominated all the theatrically released horror films this year. It goes against everything in fact. It’s not so good for the town of Texarcana though. The movie in 1976 pretty much destroyed tourism in that town, and this one is not going to help that situation. The movie unfolds on Halloween, where it is now a tradition to show the 1976 film at the local Drive-In (hell yeah). Little does the town know, but there’s a copycat killer lurking. And he’s killing people in the same manner as the victims in the first film. The entire movie is based around the first film actually. It’s really unique and extremely brutal. I didn’t like the ending though which was a bit stupid and reminded me of ‘Scream’, but I forgive them because the entire movie had me on edge and glued to the set. This is a brand new film that was just released. It’s available everywhere. I highly suggest you see it if you are a ‘real’ horror fan. This is probably the best horror film I’ve seen all year. It’s running a close race with ‘The Butterfly Room’..REAL horror is not dead!!

PATTY’S REVIEW: I think it’s a decent slasher flick. Great film making and awesome execution of the script. Great acting as well. I suggest watching the first film before you watch this though. It will help the impact. At first, I spent some time comparing it to the first film, which was based on the actual ‘Moonlight Murders’ in Texarcana in 1946. It almost seemed like a remake..Then things changed drastically. The new film is extremely gory, yet not over the top. this is a compelling movie. The Director is ‘American Horror Story’s’ own Alfonso Gomez Rejon..Need I say more? SEE IT!!

*AND ON A FINAL NOTE we would like to wish our Music Administrator BRADON HAIGLER a speedy recovery. He was admitted to the Hospital a few days ago. He’s family and we can’t wait to have him back. Please go to his facebook page and cheer him up

That’s it for this week

Closing The Casket on Shocktober

0

Hey Fiends,

Hope you all had a chance to tune in to our HORRIFIC HALLOWEEN SPECIAL last night. It was the perfect way to close the casket on our month long Shocktober Celebration. We also broke tradition last night and we didn’t air our annual ‘Dance Of The Dead’..We have been airing ‘The Dance’ for the past 8 years or so, and it’s become a favorite for Horror Fans, Paranormal Investigators, Ghost Hunters, etc. Since the Rock Solid Pressure Show is drenched in darkness all the time, we always looked forward to giving you a ‘real’ Paranormal experience with the ‘Dance Of The Dead’..Our hectic concert schedule did not give us time to get the production together this year. But we promise to unleash the ghostly carnage next year on the final week of Shocktober.

But we raised a lot of HELL on the broadcast last night. The Dungeon came alive with the masters of maniacal music, and the vibe was extremely eerie and morose. We hate to see Shocktober go. It’s a time when we can be ourselves and blend in with society. Right about this time, Horror Movies are everywhere on TV. Unfortunately, it seems Hollywood has turned their backs on the Horror Industry this year. Yeah, there’s a few out there, but they all SUCK. We’re in the age of catering to the politically correct ‘tweenie’ audience for theatrically released Horror Films. The fans have been driven underground, but there is bound to be a resurgence in the theaters when Rob Zombie releases his new movie (right?) Right now its the perfect time for JOHN CARPENTER, WES CRAVEN, GEORGE ROMERO etc, etc to step up and slap Hollywood in the face with a new film. Unfortunately, 2014 will go on record as being the ‘worst’ season we have ever seen for Horror in the theaters..Hope it picks up in 2015.

Anyway, we’re not letting the close minded idiots in Hollywood ruin our Halloween. We’re rejoicing in the season right now. We’re also looking forward to a couple kickass Halloween events this weekend (see below). Here’s a rundown of the ‘Monster Mix’ we unleashed on the broadcast last night

A Shocktober Splattering

0

Hey Fiends,

Hope you had a chance to catch the broadcast last night. Obviously, we’re going off the deep end with the dark music. We’ve been doing ‘Shocktober’ celebrations on the show for the past 12 years. The Rock Solid Pressure Show has always had a dark edge, but in Shocktober, everything is a bit more sinister. And I find we share a common bond with a ton of Rockers and Metalheads. We constantly get messages from around the country, and the world, praising the broadcast. And yes, I’d say 80% of the listeners are Horror Movie fans (lol). But what was extremely funny to us, someone messaged in to the show last night stating ‘Why Is Your Show So Grim?’ Obviously this person should ‘not’ have been listening to The Rock Solid Pressure Show. And they ‘really’ took a bad time to listen in ‘SHOCKTOBER’. I’m thinking, we may have scarred them for life (haha). Anyway, I replied to the message saying ‘Because We Broadcast From HELL’.. Was I wrong? Were not Satanists ferchrissakes, we’re ROCKERS!! We love the dark demented stuff ALL YEAR ROUND!! We love anything that’s ‘out of the box’ and relevant as well. We will not stand for any type of ‘Happy’ songs or ‘Relationship’ songs. We turn you on to music that has substance. And I’m proud to say we have been enlightening the world for 12 years with the coolest, and most relevant’ music on the planet. I feel we stand alone in our many accomplishments. If you want ‘Happiness’ and ‘Relationship’ songs. Turn on your FM dial. You certainly don’t belong in our world..Especially in SHOCKTOBER!!

INDUSTRY SHOWCASE NEWS: Besides all our ‘on air’ accomplishments. I also work in the Music Industry (For the past 30 years). I work for many Record Labels, and we tie in my Industry work with the broadcast every year for THE ROCK SOLID PRESSURE INDUSTRY SHOWCASE. This gives me a chance to get bands I work with at concert events to pick up Record Contracts, Producer deals, Mgmt deals, and lot’s of other cool things to further their career. We started the Showcase in 2002 in the Northeast when I worked exclusively for Sony Records. Every year bands get signed, and lot’s of other cool stuff happens for them. Basically, their name get’s put on the map by performing for a panel of Labels and Industry Insiders. It’s always a huge event, but this past Showcase in September has proved to be our most productive EVER! So much has happened for bands, and it’s STILL happening. We blasted our facebook walls with some huge announcements of recent signings yesterday. We were extremely honored to be asked by the bands, and the respective labels to be the first to announce this great news..In case you didn’t see our post..Check it out

The bands THE DEFIANT, PSYKOTRIBE, JUDICATOR were all signed by WILLPOWER ENTERTAINMENT from Canada. The band DRASTIC FALL was signed to MELODIC REVOLUTION RECORDS. The bands THE HANGING CHADS, LEFT OF REASON, DIDGES CHRIST SUPERDRUM are all now working with Mega-Producer MATT LAPLANT. The band PSYKOTRIBE was endorsed by SINISTER GUITAR PICKS. The bands THE DOOD and JACKMANTRA were awarded recording time at FULL WAVE SOUND. The band FROSTFANG was awarded a huge merch package from nationally known ACE HIGH PRINTING..And believe it or not, MORE results are coming in. We can hardly keep up. This is what the Showcase is about for 20 hand picked bands every year. My goal is to get ‘every’ band in that lineup every year some sort of deal. Unfortunately that will never happen, but it’s been close this year. I just want it to be on record that the Industry Showcase of 2014 was our most productive in our 12 year history. I believe we had 3 signings before. I think it was in 2007 or 2008. But we have never seen anything like this. It’s almost a perfect world for us right now. Oh shit, I’m feeling HAPPY..I’m quitting while I’m ahead

*SHOCKTOBER STUFF: Like a lot of people, it’s our favorite time of year. As Horror fans, we revel in the madness that’s on TV right now. THE WALKING DEAD is really kicking ass this year. AMERICAN HORROR STORY: FREAKSHOW also has our full attention. But we’ve been bitching and moaning about the lack of theatrical Horror Movies in 2014. Oh, they’re out there, but they have become so politically correct and TWEENIE oriented, that it’s pissing off Horror fans across the globe. The REAL Industry has been driven underground. This is where you have to go to catch a good Horror flick these days. The trouble is 90% of the Pay-Per-View, Netflix, etc films SUCK!! You have to be really careful what you buy these days. We kinda fell into a trap the other day..Read on

MOVIE REVIEW: HOUSE OF THE WITCHDOCTOR: So here’s a brand new release which stars BILL MOSELEY (Chop-Top) and LESLIE EASTERBROOK. Two giant names in the Horror Industry. We’ve had Bill on our show tons of times, and we even had Leslie on the show once. So Immediately we thought we could do no wrong with this movie. This movie is gonna kick almighty ass, right? WRONG!! It’s a sad day when we have a negative review for a film that stars BILL and LESLIE, but we call ‘em as we see ‘em..Here goes

MY REVIEW: It pains me to not give this a glowing review. The script was great, but the ‘no’ budget bad effects, and poor acting from the cast really blew it for me. Bill and Leslie did a good job, but they’re only in the movie for about 20min. The entire thing is real cheesy, but not in a good way. I feel with a better cast, and better equipment to film with. This could have been a good movie. The story revolves around two maniacs who are on a raping and killing spree (and it’s kinda laughable). They break into a house where Bill and Leslie, and their Daughter, are having the Daughter’s friends stay the weekend SPOILER ALERT: It turns out that Bill, Leslie, and their Daughter were also planning to kill the Daughter’s 4 friends in a Voodoo Ritual. Great plot, but it was executed in such a low budget way, it totally ruined it for me. I’m really into low budget films, but this didn’t work at all. I’m almost kind of amazed that Bill and Leslie were even in this movie. It seems the entire budget was spent on hiring them. If you’re a Bill Moseley fan like us. You’ll be disappointed.

PATTY’S REVIEW: The House Of The Witchdoctor was difficult to watch. As a fan of Bill Moseley and Leslie Easterbrook. I felt they just walked through this performance. It seemed they were not into this movie either. Guess I should be blaming the writer and Director, but the script actually had some promise. It was poorly acted and that certainly did not help. This film just lacked budget, and the effects were beyond terrible. I wouldn’t watch it again
