World Of Warcraft Chronicle, Vol. 2 Preview

World Of Warcraft Chronicle, Vol. 2
Hardcover
By Chris Metzen, Matt Burns, Robert Brooks, Peter Lee
Publisher: Dark Horse Comics
Release Date: March 14, 2017

While there have been tons of video games over the years with deep lore and history, few can lay claim to the size and mass of Blizzard Entertainment’s Warcraft universe. Last year, we were given a deeper look into the history of the game’s world Azeroth with World of Warcraft Chronicles: Volume 1.

Now, Blizzard Entertainment and Dark Horse Publishing are getting ready to dive back in with World of Warcraft Chronicles: Volume 2. While there have been many novels and comics to spawn from the rich history of Warcraft, retired creative director and father of Warcraft lore Chris Metzen with the Chronicle series gives us a more revealing peek into the lore from the man himself. Volume Two like before will also feature art by fan favorites Peter Lee, Joseph Lacroix, and Alex Horley. Metzen is joined once again by Matt Burns and Robert Brooks in authoring.

In 2015, IDW Publishing launched an ongoing comic book series for Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency, based on the works of Douglas Adams. This was to be a lead-up to the BBC America television series of the same name, which debuted last year. After the first miniseries, the TV show’s executive producer Arvind Ethan David, who had been serving as co-editor on the comic, took over writing duties for the next arc “A Spoon Too Short,” with art by Ilias Kyriazis and colors by Charlie Kirchoff. This next wave also had the distinction of having Max Landis, the television show’s writer and executive producer, on board as executive producer.

Fates Warning Awaken the Guardian Live banner

Last year marked the 30th anniversary of Fates Warning’s third album, the progressive metal masterpiece Awaken the Guardian. In celebration of the occasion last year, founding (and current) guitarist Jim Matheos reassembled the album’s classic line-up, including singer John Arch, for two festival shows. Now, the entire recordings from those shows have been compiled for an upcoming CD/DVD and Blu-ray titled Awaken the Guardian Live, and Metal Blade Records has released a preview of it.

Check out the preview of the upcoming live release (video and streaming audio) here below of the song “Fata Morgana.”

The Awaken the Guardian Live Blu-ray and 2-CD/1-DVD are available now for preorder now, and will released on April 28, 2017. Metal Blade is also offering some limited edition variations.

Disney In Depth: Predicting The Success Of ABC’s Fall 2016 Schedule

Disney In Depth Banner

ABC begins this fall season with a new president in charge (Channing Dungey) and a handful of popular shows (long-running Grey’s Anatomy and Modern Family), but with a lot of sore spots. Last season saw several renewals, but none of them were breakout hits. Expect ABC to come back swinging with a few surefire contenders for most buzz-worthy, and hopefully, with solid ratings that actually sustain the series.

This edition of Disney In Depth previews the potential success – and failure, unfortunately, in a few cases – of ABC’s Fall 2016 Schedule, both new and returning shows.

Black Metal Friday Preview: Torrid Husk “Carminite”

Torrid Husk and End Swallow Matewan Split Cover

On September 23, 2016, Grimoire Records will release a full-length split album entitled Swallow Matewan that has been over two years in the making. The record features two bands from very disparate parts of the world that share a common vision of black metal and a deep admiration for each other’s vision.

Torrid Husk are long-time Grimoire artists that hail from West Virginia. Their sound is a dense and intricate form of black metal that pummels the listener with layered nuances that lend themselves to the discovery of something new with each listen. End come out of the Athens, Greece scene and practice a more ethereal style of atmospheric black metal. Despite the two band’s different approaches to the genre, Swallow Matewan manages to flow together as one cohesive and monumental work of art.

We here at Geek of Doom are proud to present for your listening pleasure, in conjunction with Grimoire Records and Dewar PR, an advanced preview of one of the Torrid Husk tracks from the Swallow Matewan split. This is “Carminite.”

Allegaeon Band Photo 2016

Colorado’s Allegaeon is one of the most exciting bands the technical death metal genre today. That’s why fans were given cause for concern when the band announced last year that they had parted ways with founding member, vocalist Ezra Haynes. But recently those concerns have been laid to rest with the release of the first advanced single from their upcoming fourth album Proponent For Sentience. The track is titled “Gray Matter Mechanics” and is our first glimpse of new vocalist Riley McShane. The new frontman seems to be a perfect fit with Allegation’s particular blend of goofiness and scientific nerdy-ness. This is thinking man’s metal that doesn’t take itself too seriously.
