Today the shock rock community has suffered a great loss, Dave Brockie better known as “Oderus Urungus” from the band GWAR has passed away. I had seen Gwar twice and even had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Brockie and he was a man who always stood up for his music and the art of shock rock. The cause of death has yet to be determined and, I don’t know what’s going to happen to his band but, one thing I do know is that he will be greatly missed. Goodbye Dave, say hello to Cory Smoot for us.
WHAT’S UP NATION! I’m back from Vacation and now it’s time to get back to work. I have two new interviews coming up with Gemini Syndrome & Butcher Babies, plus I plan on having my first concert review episode out before the end of the year but until then I want you all to check out the first music video from Stone Of Madness “Hostility” featuring Atheist front man Mr. Kelly Shaefer. I already loved the song but, what I love about the video is that they really tried to put some creativity into it. Newer bands don’t have the kind of money to make a big flashy video but, that doesn’t mean you still can’t make it look good. I love the use of black and white filters it gives it this underground look and with the kind of music they play it fits very well. I also love the visual affects as well with layering footage on top of another, it makes the video more interesting to watch. All and all I give both the song and the video 5 \m/ out of 5. I think we can expect great things from Stone Of Madness, Enjoy Hostility.
