Black Metal Friday: Frosthelm “Silent and Dark, The Everlasting Sky”
Ides Bergen   |  

Frosthelm Band Photo

Cold, forlorn landscapes make the ideal breeding grounds for black metal bands. Maybe that’s why North Dakota is rapidly becoming the U.S. black metal (USBM) scene’s answer to Scandinavia. Earlier this year we were gifted with the release of ND natives Ghost Bath’s awe-inspiring masterpiece Moonlover. Now comes another stunning slab of USBM from their fellow Dakota residents Frosthelm.

After a couple of highly acclaimed independent releases Frosthelm has taken their blackened thrash attack to legendary metal producer Matt Hyde’s new label Black Work (Alkemy Brothers) and delivered the brilliant and pummeling album The Endless Winter. Skeletonwitch singer Chance Garnett may have summed these guys up best with this quote: “A definite Euro/cold guitar tone but with an American ‘something’ added. I hear Immortal meets The Black Dahlia Murder, and that’s something I’ve not yet heard.”

In honor of Disneyland‘s 60th Anniversary, Disney In Depth will dedicate each edition in July to Walt’s original park. Accordingly, it only seems fitting to notate some of the elements that make Walt Disney’s original playground so special.

The GoD List: Comics For July 1, 2015
Henchman21   |  

The GoD List

Each and every week, I, “Giant Robot!” Henchman 21 and “Space Robot!” 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 July 1, 2015. Single issues and trades, they’re all here.

I thought I was going to have an easy list to write this week, but as I started seeing what was coming out, I had to keep adding things and adding things and adding things. It turned a shorter list into a longer list, but that just means you, the fine reader, have plenty to look forward to when you go to the store today. I hope you’re ready for some new series, some reprints, and plenty more on a jam-packed The GoD List!

Universal Studios Hollywood’s ‘Fast and Furious: Supercharged’ Takes You Into The Movie
LA Spectre   |  

Fast and Furious Supercharged

The best kind of theme park rides are the ones that truly take you into environments of the story. At Universal Studios Hollywood, Fast and Furious: Supercharged does just that! It’s crazy to think that the backlot tram can transform into a high-speed chase vehicle, but they totally did it. You start off on the regular theme park tour which then finds itself under threat when Dom Torretto and Owen Shaw go head-to-head in a chase you come along for through the streets and highways of Los Angeles.

The immersive 360 experience pushes the envelope for theme park rides. It uses similar hydraulic tech like on Disney World’s Star Tours, but on a longer scale that isn’t as encapsulated. The combination of it with 3D on both sides plays tricks on your mind and you really feel like you’re zooming through traffic with Dom, Letty, and the gang.

Massive Metal Monday: Judas Priest “Diamonds & Rust”
Ides Bergen   |  

Judas Priest

Judas Priest will be headlining the first night of this year’s edition of Slipknot’s massive Knotfest festival, which takes place in San Bernadino, California on October 24th and 25th. In honor of the metal gods, this Massive Metal Monday takes us all the way back to 1977 for one of the band’s earliest breakthrough hits. “Diamonds and Rust” was actually composed by folk legend Joan Baez in 1974 and allegedly recounts her breakup with Bob Dylan a decade earlier. The lyrically altered and sonically turbocharged Priest version appears on the Sin After Sin album. The track remains a fan favorite and a staple of Priest live shows to this day.

Black Metal Friday: Nihilistinen Barbaarisuus “The Child Must Die”
Ides Bergen   |

One would never guess by listening to them that black metal unit Nihilistinen Barbaarisuus hail from Philadelphia. The band’s mastermind Mika Mage draws a great deal of inspiration from the folklore of his Finnish heritage. In fact, the music and artwork of Nihilistinen Barbaarisuus’ excellent new album The Child Must Die are both based on the Finnish national epic The Kalevala, a poetic book with a collection of myths and legends that occupies a prominent place in the Finnish identity, with most songs adapted directly from passages from the text.

Our Black Metal Friday selection for this week is the title track of that very record. Here below, with the official video for “The Child Must Die,” is Nihilistinen Barbaarisuus. If you like what you hear, be sure to pick up a copy of the album and help support the burgeoning U.S. Black Metal scene.

Disney In Depth: Examining ‘Inside Out’
Brett Nachman   |  

Disney In Depth Banner

Four years ago at D23 Expo 2011, Pixar announced what would be its 15th feature film: Inside Out. Two years later came news of the cast and the respective characters. The first time I witnessed early footage I experienced a mix of hope and hilarity. After what has felt like an endless wait, the movie is finally out. Disney•Pixar has developed a gift, a film that sensibly pushes the limits of animation and stretches what our brains can comprehend in a comfortable, if not “mind-blowing” hour-and-a-half format.

Let’s examine Inside Out, in terms of what it is composed of and what this movie can mean for the future of the studio.

Henchman21   |  

The GoD List

Each and every week, I, “Day late!” Henchman 21 and “Dollar short!” 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 June 24, 2015. Single issues and trades, they’re all here.

It’s kind of a slower week for new comic book releases, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t plenty of titles to get excited about. There’s plenty of Secret Wars tie ins, new DC launches, the next issue of Fight Club 2, and the usual mix of great series from Image, Dark Horse, and others. So, get ready for more comics, more fun and more of The GoD List!

Kickstarter Spotlight: ‘Second Nature,’ A Unique Gender Role Reversal Comedy
BAADASSSSS!   |  

Second Nature

Body-swapping comedies have been around for decades (case in point: Vice Versa, The Change-Up, Dream a Little Dream, etc.), but filmmaker Michael Cross, a graduate of the prestigious USC School of Cinematic Arts – the alma mater of Hollywood heavyweights such as Ron Howard and John Singleton – has an imaginative take on the genre in which instead of the lead characters swapping bodies, gender roles are reversed. He would like to turn this idea into a feature film, and he needs your help to make it happen!

Cross, a longtime director and editor of short films and commercials, is preparing to make his feature directorial debut with the comedy Second Nature, and he has opened a Kickstarter campaign to raise the $55,000 he requires to get it made. So far, the campaign has raised over $8,000 with a little over three weeks left to go.

Continue below for more on the movie and to watch the Kickstarter video.
