Black Metal Friday: Dissection “Dark Mother Divine”
Ides Bergen   |  

Dissection Band Photo

Sweden’s Dissection was a lightening rod for controversy. The band would release only 3 full-length albums in its career, but each of them is considered a masterpiece and essential listening for students of black metal. Band leader Jon Nödtveidt was a disturbed genius who viewed Dissection as his vehicle to spread the anti-cosmic Satanism philosophies of the notorious Norwegian inner circle organization known as the Misanthropic Luciferian Order (now the Temple of the Black Light).

Dissection broke up in 1997 when Nödtveidt was convicted for his part in the murder of a homosexual man in a Göteborg park. He received a 10-year prison sentence, of which he served six. Upon emerging from prison, he would resurrect the band with new members who would be “able to “stand behind and live up to the demands of Dissection’s Satanic concept.” This would be the lineup that would record the final Dissection album, the 2006 masterpiece Reinkaos.

Disney In Depth: Epcot’s Evolution, A One-Year Thesis Project
Brett Nachman   |  

Disney In Depth banner

Twelve months in the making and one unforgettable experience, in November 2014 I completed an enriching project that catapulted my Disney fervor into something quite scholarly. As a student of Arizona State University’s Barrett, The Honors College, I was to spend two semesters developing a thesis on a subject of my choosing. What better way to combine entertainment and education than to add some fantastic flavor to an academic endeavor?

An Epcot enthusiast, I realized I could translate my passion for the community-turned-theme park into a piece of research that would explore its evolution. More specifically, I wanted to identify the interrelations between technology and culture in this artificial, yet awesome environment. Thus I set off on a one-year journey that would be as amazing and personally fulfilling as venturing to Epcot for the first time some 15 years ago.

The GoD List Banner

Each and every week, I, “Go Patriots!” Henchman 21 and “What trailers are they showing?” Empress Eve read a lot of comics. Seriously you guys, a lot of comics. Maybe too many comics. I mean, it is possible… theoretically. Naturally, we look forward to some more than others. I mean, who doesn’t? So, let’s take a look into the depths of our pull lists, grab some comics, and we’ll let YOU know what the top books to look forward to are for the week of January 28, 2015. Single issues and trades, they’re all here.

Ohhhhhhhhhhh sweet, sweet nectar. These are the weeks that make me love comics oh so much. As I was putting together this list each week, I usually start with a general idea of what books I want to talk about and how many I’ll be writing about on any given week. This week I thought I knew what I was going to write about, but then new books jumped off the release list and demanded that I recommend them to you, and the list just kept getting bigger. There is just such a metric crap load of great books coming out this week that I just can’t wait to tell you about so let’s just get to it and an over-sized The GoD List!

The Digital Wire Blu-ray/DVD Release News: The Freakin’ Motherlode
BAADASSSSS!   |  

Interstellar Header Image

Welcome to another edition of The Digital Wire, and so glad you could stop by because this week is chock full of major home video announcements to make up for the first slow weeks of 2015. The studios aren’t wasting any time getting some of their major holiday releases on Blu-ray and DVD now that they’re played out on the big screen, but the smaller video labels are stepping up as well to bring consumers select titles that have been in demand for many years. Needless to say, the next few months are going to be very interesting.

Below you’ll find info on several future home video releases complete with technical specs, release dates, and links to pre-order at Amazon. We would greatly appreciate it if you use those links to order because a small percentage of each order helps keep this website running at max power. The cover art for certain titles has yet to be finalized.

Kickstarter Spotlight: ‘What We Do In The Shadows’ Jemaine Clement’s Vampire Docu-Comedy
Pfeff-Bot   |  

What We Do In The Shadows

“The Humans Are Dead” is not just a Flight of the Conchords song. Really, the humans are actually dead…well, technically undead. New Zealand’s Jemaine Clement (Flight of the Conchords, Eagle vs. Shark) and Taika Waititi (Eagle vs. Shark, Boy) have created a “vampire documentary” called What We Do In The Shadows and they believe “the truth about vampires must be told in America.”

This award-winning independent film, which we got to see a trailer for back in December, is now in New Zealand, but Clement and Waititi are raising funds on Kickstarter to bring it to 70 cities in the United States.

Massive Metal Monday: Van Halen “Eruption”
Ides Bergen   |  

Van Halen Band Photo

Is Van Halen a metal band or just a very heavy hard rock band? It’s a debate that’s been raging amongst metalheads ever since the band’s eponymous 1978 debut album, Van Halen, took the rock world by storm. But no one, then or now, could dispute that the band’s then-23-year-old virtuoso guitarist and namesake had turned the world of rock and metal guitar playing on its ear with his beefy tone, flashy and innovative right-hand tapping technique, and unbelievably fast and fluid legato runs.

Nowhere was this more evident than on “Eruption,” the blistering second track of the debut album. Very few instances can be found in modern music where a single moment changed the entire landscape around it. Even fewer can boast of forever altering the way an instrument is played. “Eruption” was a clarion call that would herald the arrival of the new sheriff in town. Eddie Van Halen‘s signature instrumental stands as the centerpiece of every Van Halen performance to this day.

And speaking of this day, it just so happens that today, January 26, 2015, is King Edward’s 60th birthday. So crank up the video clip here below of the man himself performing “Eruption” (along with a portion of “316″ and other assorted tastiness) live from Van Halen’s legendary 1986 concert film Live Without A Net.
