From the imagination of Oscar-winning director Guillermo del Toro (Pan’s Labyrinth, The Shape of Water) comes Crimson Peak, a lavish, stunningly realized journey into the dark heart of Gothic romance... Beginning in Buffalo, New York, during the 1880s, Crimson Peak stars Mia Wasikowska (Alice in Wonderland, Stoker) as Edith Cushing, an aspiring writer who is haunted by the death of her mother. Edith falls in love with seductive stranger Thomas Sharpe (Tom Hiddleston, The Avengers), who whisks her off to Allerdale Hall, his baronial, yet dilapidated English mansion built upon a mountain of blood-red clay. Here Edith meets Lucille (Jessica Chastain, Zero Dark Thirty), Thomas’s sister who at times seems hostile and jealous. As Edith struggles to feel at home in the imposing residence, she gradually uncovers a horrendous family secret and encounters supernatural forces that will help her discover the terrible truth behind Crimson Peak. Boasting incredibly intricate and ornate production design and a rich visual style, del Toro’s film is a grandiose, boldly baroque triumph of Gothic decadence, which expertly combines and contrasts the sublimely beautiful with the shockingly grotesque. Crimson Peak is presented here with a wealth of extra features, affording unprecedented insight into the making of this modern Gothic classic.

MANY PEOPLE VISIT … NO ONE EVER LEAVES. Helmed by legendary producer/director Ovidio Assonitis, the man behind such cult favourites as The Visitor and Piranha II: The Spawning, Madhouse is a crimson-soaked tale of sibling rivalry taken to a terrifying and bloody extreme. Julia has spent her entire adult life trying to forget the torment she suffered at the hands of her twisted twin Mary… but Mary hasn’t forgotten. Escaping hospital, where she’s recently been admitted with a horrific, disfiguring illness, Julia’s sadistic sister vows to exact a particularly cruel revenge on her sibling this year – promising a birthday surprise that she’ll never forget. An Italian production shot entirely in Savannah, Georgia, Madhouse (aka And When She Was Bad and There Was a Little Girl) fuses slasher elements with the over-the-top excess of ‘80s Italian terror – resulting in a cinematic bloodbath so gut-wrenching that the British authorities saw fit to outlaw it as a “video nasty”.

YOU’LL SHRIEK WITH HORROR! Roll up, roll up! Step right up for Malatesta’s Carnival of Blood – the grisliest, freakiest show in town! Virtually impossible to find until its revival on DVD in the early 2000s, this 1973 cult oddity, from late director Christopher Speeth, is a cinematic experience like no other. Arriving at a creepy, dilapidated fairground under the premise of looking for work, the Norris family are hoping to track down their missing son, who, they believe, is somewhere in the park. But it’s not long before they find themselves at the mercy of the fairground’s fiendish proprietors and the cannibalistic ghouls lurking in the caverns below. Filmed at the Willow Grove amusement park in Pennsylvania, Malatesta’s Carnival of Blood is a mind-melting phantasmagoria of carnie craziness which blends elements of Night of the Living Dead and Carnival of Souls, adding an (un)healthy dose of Herschell Gordon Lewis-style gore for good measure.

Limitiertes Vinyl. whiskey-soda.de: (...) Queensrÿche besonders erfreuen dürfte. (...) traditionellen US-Metal der Marke Crimson Glory oder frühere Fates Warning zu Hause ist, dürfte von diesem Album begeistert sein.nnDave Harvey, Bassist bei ASKA gründete Millennial Reign als Soloprojekt und Spielwiese eigener Ideen. 2012 veröffentlichte er das Debüt des Projekts völlig independent. Doch schon kurz nach VÖ und diversen sehr positiven Rückmeldungen, entschloss sich Dave Harvey aus dem Projekt eine Band zu machen. Zwischen 2012 und 2014 stießen peu a peu der fantastische Sänger James Guest, Schlagzeuger Wayne Stokely, Bassist Daniel Almagro und der zweite Gitarrist Jason Donnelly zu Millennial Reign. Einen Quantensprung legt die Band nun mit -Carry The Fire- vor. Hochklassiger US Power Metal für alle Fans von Iron Maiden, Judas Priest und vor allem Queensryche und Crimson Glory (was wohl primär an James Guest und seiner stimmlichen Nähe zu Geoff Tate und Midnight liegt). Das Album wurde im Nomad Studio (King Diamond, Solitude Aeturnus, Absu) gemischt und gemastert, das Artwork stammt von Felipe Machado Franco (Blind Guardian, Iced Earth, Theocracy) und wurde entworfen von Jan Yrlund (Delain, Apocalyptica, Korpiklaani). TRACKS: 1. Forever Changed 2. Way Up High 3. Millennial Reign 4. Men Stand Alone 5. Save Me 6. This Day 7. Will you 8. Innocent Cry 9. Not On My Own 10. I'll Try

High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Safety In Numbers is Umphrey's McGee's fourth studio album (seventh overall), released on April 4, 2006. Huey Lewis and Joshua Redman both make appearances. The album contains many slower, acoustic songs and a simpler, stripped down approach with little jamming or progressive rock elements. The artwork for the album was done by Storm Thorgerson. Although the band is part of the jam-band scene, like Phish and the Grateful Dead (with ever-changing setlists, improvisation, two sets per night, open-taping policy, etc), they are much more influenced musically by progressive rock bands such as King Crimson, Yes, Pink Floyd, Dream Theater, Frank Zappa, and Genesis, as well as heavy metal bands such as Iron Maiden. The band also identifies The Police, The Beatles, and Led Zeppelin as primary influences. Avid fans of the group Umphrey's Mcgee have a cult like following. They are referred to as "Umphreaks" and have a website and following on Twitter.
