Black Metal Friday: Terra “Apotheosis”
Ides Bergen   |  @   |  

Terra Mors Secunda Album banner

Terra is a three-piece, atmospheric, black metal band hailing from Cambridge, England. Their sound, while unique in its own right, is also reminiscent of bands like Wolves In The Throne Room, Ash Borer, and Alter of Plagues. Their 2015 self-titled debut album was met by widespread critical praise, landing them on many critics’ year end “best of” lists.

Now Terra is set to release its highly anticipated follow-up and, let me tell you, I’ve heard it and there is definitely no sophomore slump here! The record is titled Mors Secunda and it hits the streets next Friday December 9, 2016.

We here at GoD are very proud to present a sneak peak at the record right here below in the form of the track “Apotheosis.”

Disney In Depth: 2016 Animation Battle: ‘Moana’ v. ‘Finding Dory’ v. ‘Zootopia’
Brett Nachman   |  @   |  

Disney In Depth Banner

The Walt Disney Studios released three critically/viewer acclaimed films in 2016 that also were major financial hits – Moana still pending, but early signs look favorable; Finding Dory; and Zootopia.

Which of the three films, though, is the best? That’s like picking a favorite child, considering each movie’s unique strengths. To help determine the winner – in my book, at least – I have established a bunch of categories that apply to all of the films. Let the battle commence!

Star Wars: Catalyst: A Rogue One Novel

Star Wars: Catalyst: A Rogue One Novel
Hardcover | Kindle | Digital Audiobook | Audio CD
Written by James Luceno
Read by Jonathan Davis
Del Rey | Random House Audio
Release Date: November 15, 2016

Welcome, one and all to my very first Audiobook Spotlight! With the theatrical release of Star Wars: Rogue One just days away, I wanted to make sure you know there is an amazing audiobook that’s out and ready to bridge the prequels and the original trilogy. Written by James Luceno and read by Jonathan Davis, Star Wars: Catalyst: A Rogue One Novel is an unabridged recording of the novel, so you won’t miss a single detail from the story. The great thing about listening to a book, rather than reading one, is that you can multitask and accomplish other things like chores, workouts, or homework! I prefer to listen to them while driving, but make sure you’re not one of those really passionate readers who gets so into the story that you forget what you’re doing! Here at Geeks Of Doom, we support Safe Audiobook Consumption.

Interview: ‘Night Of Something Strange’ Director Jonathan Straiton
Dr. Zaius   |  @   |  

Night of Something Strange movie banner

Two weeks ago I attended the New York City Horror Film Festival taking in 19 films in 3+ days. The film that won Best Feature was Night of Something Strange, co-written and directed by Jonathan Straiton. It featured some of the craziest scenes imaginable in modern horror, while telling the story of an STD that turns people in zombie-like monsters who desire to spread the disease the ol’ fashioned way. Getting caught in the middle are a group of horny high schoolers out for Spring Break. What caught my eye, was the poster which instantly transported me back to the 80s, and digging through aisles of VHS tapes in the horror section. I got a chance to speak with Straiton this week, right as the film was about to hit iTunes.

Check out the interview below.

Spotlight On Local: Bruce Duff Gives Us Rock From Behind The Scenes To Center Stage

If you hang out on the Los Angeles rock scene long enough, it’s likely that you will make some sort of acquaintance with the man, the musician, the legend, the Bruce Duff. Duff’s high visibility is probably due to his ability to wear so many hats in the music industry including journalist, publicist, band manager, engineer, podcaster, author, and actively gigging musician. It was a crisp, Fall day in Los Angeles when I submerged into the offices that lurk beneath the Federal Bar to find Duff at his 9-5 gig at Knitting Factory Management to see what he’s been up to lately.

A California native, Duff was born in the city of Riverside. His initiation into rock n’ roll wasn’t about the sex and glamour that lead some down that wayward path. Rather, when Duff was around 10, he was at a child’s party when he saw a boy, even younger than him, pick up a guitar and start playing. “He looked like a rock star on television,” he recalls. And so, Duff was off on his journey.

A new leader is poised to reign in Kattegat on History Channel’s Vikings. One of the most famous vikings in history, Ivar the Boneless, born as a cripple to Ragnar Lothbrok and Aslaug (Travis Fimmel, Alyssa Sutherland), he developed his wits and became a fearsome strategist and leader, conquering much of England.

I had the honor of interviewing Alex Andersen, the young man poised to take the lead as Ivar of this fantastic show. We chatted about his audition, the relationship between Ivar and Ragnar, and his “brothers.”

‘Network’ 40 Years Later: Why We Are Still Mad As Hell
Stoogeypedia   |  

Network movie box art banner

Network, the 1976 powerhouse of a motion picture, in which its statements on national and world politics, Hollywood, the television industry, and the human population in general resonate more relevant in today’s age than ever before, celebrates its 40th anniversary this week.

Directed by Sidney Lumet, with an Academy Award-winning screenplay written by the genius small and big screen writer Paddy Chayefsky, Network, originally released on November 27th, 1976, doesn’t pull any punches whatsoever, in terms of its script, narrative, themes and especially its performances. Faye Dunaway leads an ensemble group of Hollywood’s finest, including William Holden, Ned Beatty, and Robert Duvall, all of whom explode across the screen while naturally spouting dialogue of the highest intellectual and emotional order.
