A Shocktober Splattering

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

That’s all I got..Cya At The Shows
