Hope you all tuned in Monday night for the kickoff of our ‘Shocktober Celebration’. It’s our favorite time of year, and we’ll be crankin out the terror tuneage all month long. It’s always a dark journey on The Rock Solid Pressure Show, but in Shocktober we go one step beyond. We can almost ‘guarantee’ a paranormal experience on every broadcast. Lot’s to talk about in this edition, so let’s get to it

*INDUSTRY SHOWCASE NEWS: We’re slowly getting back to normal after the Industry Showcase. Once again, it was an amazing event. Our 12th annual gala was another smashing success for the Florida music scene. The band bonding and networking, which the Showcase is all about, was in full force this year. It was almost like a ‘family’ event. And all the bands in the lineup were part of the huge RSP Family. We really enjoyed this one. It was also another productive year for the panelists. The results are coming in FAST!! We announced a few results on the broadcast on Monday night, but in case you shamelessly missed the show, here’s what’s happening so far.. PSYKOTRIBE (Tampa) was endorsed by SINISTER GUITAR PICKS.. THE DOOD (Sarasota) and JACKMANTRA (Brandon) earned themselves free studio time at FULL WAVE SOUND…FROSTFANG (St. Petersburg) earned themselves an incredible merch package from ACE HIGH PRINTING. We have also just learned that the band THE HANGING CHADS (Tampa) are now working with mega-Producer MATT LAPLANT..We have also just heard some rumblings that DRASTIC FALL (Tampa) and THE DEFIANT (St. Petersburg) will be inking deals soon. I’m sure there are more results coming, and we’ll announce them when we find out. Things don’t really happen this fast at the Showcase, so yes, it was a very productive year..So far
I’d like to thank all the bands that performed. Every single band kicked major ass!! In fact, it was probably our best lineup to date. Gotta thank all the panelists.. JASON BIELER (Bieler Bros Records / Saigon Kick), MATT LaPLANT (Bieler Bros, Roadrunner, Atlantic, etc), NICK & JEN KATONA (Melodic Revolution Records), MATT DAY (Willpower Ent / STM Records), FELIX DELUNA (Ddrum) REJEAN GERMAIN (High Sonic Records), VOODOO RICK (Ace High), STEVON GARDNER (Sinister Guitar Picks)..They all did an amazing job, and we had mega fun with the panel this year
Also big thanks to our sponsors for this years event FREAKSHOW FOLLIES (who crafted cool keychain souvenirs for this years Showcase), ACE HIGH PRINTING, SINISTER GUITAR PICKS, FULL WAVE SOUND, REVERBNATION, LOCALIZED MUSIC, GENERATION FOOD TRUCK, DDRUM, FULL ACCESS MAGAZINE, MUSIC GO ROUND
Extra special thanks go out to STEVON GARDNER, ROB FINDLEY, RICHARD SMYTH JR., VOODOO RICK, BRANDON HAIGLER, AND THE ENTIRE STAFF AT STATE THEATRE..Especially the sound and light crew..
All in all, it was a fantastic year. I don’t know how we’ll top this one for next year. But remember, next year is THE BIG THIRTEEN (lol) I’ll think of something..
*NEXT WEEK ON THE ROCK SOLID PRESSURE SHOW: Well, it’s Shocktober! You know what that means! Yes, our good friend ‘JOHN 5’ makes his annual return to the Dungeon. John is one of our most frequent guests. Weve been having him on the show since 2004. LOT’S to talk about with John this year. His new album ‘CAREFUL WITH THAT AXE’, The new ROB ZOMBIE album (which will be dropping soon), His new solo band and ‘Pay Per View’ concert on Oct 18th, and lots of other stuff in John’s wicked world. So make sure you tune in on Monday night
*HORROR MOVIE REVIEW: So yeah, it’s been the WORST year for Horror Movies that we have seen..EVER!! Everything at the theaters is BULLSHIT POLITICALLY CORRECT TWEENIE CRAP!! Horror Movies have seriously died an untimely death at the movies, but the industry is BOOMING in the ‘Direct to DVD / Netflix’ department. Only problem with that is. you have to search through TONS of crap to find a good one. Maybe its a little bit over-saturated. We enjoy a steady diet of Horror Movies ALL THE TIME!! But in Shocktober, our creepy ways have meaning. And it’s tradition on The Rock Solid Pressure Show to review a Horror Film for every Shocktober broadcast. Since there is nothing worth mentioning at the theaters, we went underground to find some new releases, and we came up with a gem called THE BUTTERFLY ROOM. We both really enjoyed this Terror Tale…
First off. It was a total joy to see veteran Horror Scream Queen BARBERA STEELE in the lead role as a psychotic psycho-bitch Grandma. She kills and kills again to get herself a new Daughter. This is ‘Mommie Dearest’ on Steroids!! And the entire cast is made up veteran horror actors. Seriously, what more could a horror fan want? If you only see one new horror film this year (and it IS the worst year for horror), make it ‘THE BUTTERFLY ROOM’..You won’t be disappointed.
