Fallujah The Flesh Prevails Album Cover Art

Fallujah
The Flesh Prevails
CD | MP3
Unique Leader Records
Release date: July 22, 2014

Technical death metal perfection. That’s pretty much all that need be said about Fallujah‘s brilliant new release The Flesh Prevails. From the moment that you lay eyes on the gorgeous album art until the final notes of album closer “Chemical Cave” leave you jaw agape, this album takes you on a journey through ethereal beauty and Earth-shaking brutality. The musicianship is astounding and inventive. Even in the moments of calm in the eye of this storm, Fallujah never let you forget that this record is HEAVY in nearly every conceivable sense of the word. Listen below to the album’s first single “Sapphire.”

Comic Review: Monomyth #1

Release Date: July 23, 2014
Cover Price: $3.99

Ever wonder what would happen if you took one of the oldest stories around and turned it on its side? That’s exactly what Monomyth #1 is doing to the story of Adam and Eve. Changing key parts of a story to deliver an entirely different outcome is nothing new. There’s even a genre called alternative history just for that sort of thing. But taking a fundamentally Christian tale and altering it? That’s something you don’t see too often.

Beginning with the War in Heaven is a fitting way to start this comic, mostly since the fallen angels are the ones long believed to have precipitated the fall of man. However, this version of the war turns out slightly different and the bad guy in this story isn’t the one you might expect. Ever wonder what might have changed if Eve had not bitten from the forbidden fruit? What if the first couple had not been banished from Eden? All of these questions are answered to help build the foundation of what is to be the Monomyth storyline.

The Strain
Season 1 Episode 2: “The Box”
Directed by David Semel
Written by Guillermo del Toro, Chuck Hogan, Bradley Thompson, and David Weddle
Starring Corey Stoll, David Bradley, Mia Maestro, Sean Astin, Kevin Durand, Richard Sammel, Jonathan Hyde, Miguel Gomez, Natalie Brown, Jack Kesy, and Ben Hyland
FX
Air Date: Sunday July 20, 2014, 10pm

Last week’s recap: If you haven’t seen the pilot episode, stop reading now!

Last week found Dr. Ephraim Goodweather (Corey Stoll) of the CDC, a man on the verge of losing his wife and son, called to the scene of a cold, dark plane. He and his partner, Dr. Nora Martinez (Mia Maestro), find everyone (except 4) on board dead, seemingly at once and with no pain. A 9-foot soil-filled coffin disappears from a warehouse by being lifted up. A mysterious old man (David Bradley) with a sword and a pet heart appears at the airport with dire warnings of things he has seen before. Another mysterious old man shows up to pay off Gus (Miguel Gomez), a thug who worships his mother, to drive some precious cargo that must be over the bridge before daybreak. We see a monster suck on a guy’s neck and then smash his head like he was Oberyn Martell. And the medical examiner has a close call when a worm-like virus (or virus-like worm) almost gets under his skin. He pulls in out in the nick of time (whew!), only to be felled by the zombie-like vampires (to the tune of “Sweet Caroline”), formerly known as the dead passengers of the doomed flight from Berlin. One dead little girl returns home to her father’s embrace.

Movie Review: The Purge: Anarchy

The Purge: Anarchy review header

The Purge: Anarchy
Written & Directed by James DeMonaco
Starring Frank Grillo, Carmen Ejogo, Zoe Soul, Michael K. Williams, Zach Gilford
Universal Pictures
Rated R | 103 Minutes
Release Date: July 18, 2014

Review by Yasin Lago

The first Purge film was a concept and box office windfall that took folks by surprise, so much so that it seemed to demand a sequel. True or not, here it is with The Purge: Anarchy. The original played as the suburban-style stuck-in-the-house-with-strangers scenario. This time out the story is told throughout the city, with downtown L.A. as an open set location. Of course that means expanding and expounding on violent crimes committed by seemingly demonic-like phantoms strolling from murder to murder, as well as the class war, slightly hinted at in the previous, which is the focus of this film.

Album Review: Tombs ‘Savage Gold’

Tombs Savage Gold Album Cover Art

Savage Gold
Tombs
CD | MP3
Relapse Records
Original Release Date: June 10, 2014

When one hears the term “black metal,” the first thing that springs to mind might be a bunch of guys in black leather and spikes with corpse paint, burning churches and murdering their way across Scandinavian countries. The last image that the name of this often-feared and misunderstood genre evokes would be an average-looking bunch of guys in street clothes from Brooklyn, New York. But that is exactly what Mike Hill and his band Tombs are. In fact, they are on the cutting edge of the genre.
