INFESTER “To the Depths, in Degradation” death metal re-release review and youtube stream

Re-releases of “best kept secret” type of old bands, usually package attractively mediocre quality content using 80’s/90’s nostalgia and vinyl fetishism. Even when the music is good, most such bands were mere clones back at the day, therefore their (re-) Read more

NECROBLOOD “Collapse of the Human Race” black/death metal album review and bandcamp stream

Parisian old-school metal band NECROBLOOD have penetrated violently my musical microcosm back in 2011. They have done so with the best credentials that an underground metal band could possibly have according to my book: a debut self-titled 7”EP released by Read more

A complex beer that will resonate with wine lovers: Straffe Hendrik – Heritage (2014) craft beer review

Fear the Walking Dead Premiere Review

Posted on by Vassago in Movies/Series, TV Series | Leave a comment

fear the walking dead posterFear the walking dead, the much anticipated sister TV series (prequel) to the mega-hit “The Walking Deadhit a record high in viewings last night with 10.1 million people watching it. Zombie series is very debatable in terms of reviews as it seems on one hand that there is a cult followership loving it, and on the other people who can’t stand it. However this is not your ordinary zombie series, since it is supposed to show viewers the early days of the outbreak we witness in the past  5 seasons in The Walking Dead. Having said that, expectations are quiet high. I didn’t bother watching videos or preview clips before episode 1 was aired last night and to be honest with you, what I am looking to find from this series (as I am sure you do to) is how the outbreak started. Now that we know the biggest secret which was revealed at the end of season 2 (everyone is infected), Fear the walking dead is supposed to explore how this outbreak started, how every single human living being was infected and what was the original intention behind this engineered virus. I was really hoping for not another zombie series, maybe the last episode being how the first human was turned.

I wasn;t able to wait any longer so I sit down, light my smoke and get a cold beer. Series stats and 2 minutes later I see this….

gloria first zombie - fear the walking dead

….so much for wishful thinking.

Posted on by Vassago in Movies/Series, TV Series | Leave a comment

Only a couple of months after releasing Twin Peaks – The Entire Mystery [Blu-ray] [Region Free] in blue ray, David Lynch through a special announcement on twitter released a teaser showing the scene where Laura Palmer promises Agent Cooper that they will meet again in 25 years and then the date “2016” confirming this way that Twin Peaks will release a new third season sometime in 2016. It is also confirmed that Lynch will work along Mark Frost and that the series – which frustrated me so much back in the 90s when I originally saw it and left so many questions unanswered – will pick up where season 2 left and in particular 25 years later as Ray Wise hinted early this year so hopefully we’ll get some answers…..not!
