Spotlight On Local: Against The Ordinary
Marissa Bergen   |  

Against The Ordinary Band Photo

Remember the ’80s heavy metal scene? The drunken debauchery? The sex, drugs, and rock ‘n’ roll? When men dressed up like women, and women dressed up like the girl your mother warned you about? Well now, so many years later, the long hair has turned gray or perhaps fallen out completely, the girl your mother warned you about is, well, your mom, and even Gene Simmons proclaims that rock is dead while many reluctant rockers concede to agree.

But maybe it’s just sleeping. Maybe it’s waiting for a really good band to come along and kick it in the ass…

Against The Ordinary hail from Corona, CA. Though the members are just on the verge of saying goodbye to their teenage years, they manage to righteously pay homage to 45 years of rock ‘n’ roll. Continue below for more on the band and to see a video of them playing live.

Black Metal Friday: “Blashyrkh (Mighty Ravendark)” by Immortal
Ides Bergen   |  

Immortal Band Photo

Immortal come from (where else?) the hotbed of black metal, Bergen, Norway, and is one of the most iconic and polarizing bands in the genre. They are revered by many as one of the first bands to emerge in the second wave of black metal and reviled by others who see them as “the KISS of black metal,” perhaps due to the fact that the band has proven to be one of the most commercially successful black metal outfits ever and can often be seen playing the main stages of major European festivals.

Love them or hate them, there is no denying that black metal as we know it today might be a very different animal if not for the contributions of Immortal. Here, from their iconic 1995 album Battles In The North are Immortal with the official video for the song “Blashyrkh (Mighty Ravendark).”

Thrashback Thursday: “Institutionalized” By Suicidal Tendencies
Ides Bergen   |  

Suicidal Tendencies Band Photo

Suicidal Tendencies was born out of Southern California’s thriving skateboard culture of the late ’70s/early ’80s. Leader and singer Mike Muir originally intended for the group to be a part-time party band on the Venice, CA, punk scene and skatepark circuit, but the Suicidal quickly evolved into one of the first punk/thrash crossover successes, gaining a following so rabid that they actually considered themselves a gang. The Suicidal Cycos, as they called themselves, had various local chapters in cites across Southern California and as far away as San Antonio, Texas. The band also gained infamy due to the culture of violence involving gang clashes at many of their early shows.

The surprise hit of the 2004 holiday season, National Treasure, Disney’s Jerry Bruckehimer production once destined as a Touchstone Pictures release, became an international sensation. Grossing nearly $350 million worldwide, inspiring a book series and sequel film, and re-launching Nicolas Cage‘s stardom, Treasure‘s name could not be more fitting.

How fast a decade goes by. National Treasure turns one decade old this November. That’s reason enough to determine 10 reasons to revisit the film.

The GoD List: Comics For November 19, 2014
Henchman21   |  

The GoD List Banner

Each and every week, I, “Too Cold!” Henchman 21 and “Way Too Cold!” 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 November 19, 2014. Single issues and trades, they’re all here.

It’s a special all Image hardcover edition because apparently they felt the need to drop three awesome collections out on the same week. Which I guess is cool because it’s not like I need money going into the Christmas season. But, I suppose I was just going to spend that money on gallons and gallons of egg nog and I may as well spend it on awesome comics. Which is exactly what we suggest you do on The GoD List!
