Sinister Creature Con will make its Spring debut in Sacramento at the Scottish Rite Center on Father’s Day Weekend on June 16th & 17th, 2018. It promises to be the go-to event for every horror and sci-fi enthusiast. If you can’t get enough of horror film classics like Friday the 13th, Nightmare on Elm Street and the film that is arguably the best horror Film of all time, The Exorcist, this event is a must-see.
Whenever Corrosion Of Conformity releases a new album, folks take notice. But their latest is a true event. It’s been a dozen years since Corrosion Of Conformity recorded new material with vocalist/guitarist Pepper Keenan at the helm. In that time, there have been rumors, whispers, and outright allegations that the legendary Southern rock outfit would reunite to blow the doors off the whole damn scene again. In 2014, after nearly a straight decade traversing the globe as a guitarist with New Orleans super group Down, Keenan reconnected with the core Corrosion Of Conformity trio of Woody Weatherman, Mike Dean, and Reed Mullin to hit the road hard. Hayden Johnson of Capital Chaos TV recently had the chance to chat with Woody Weatherman of Corrosion Of Conformity
Did the Pepper rejoining change the recording or writing dynamic for No Cross No Crown?
“Yeah, I mean it wasn’t like Pepper ever actually left the band. He lives in New Orleans. But whenever we decided we were going to do it, we were talking the whole time and said hey, when the time is right, we’re gonna make it happen. But I will say this, whenever you add somebody into the mix there’s different ideas and of course the dynamic changes a little bit. Generally the way we approach stuff, is we’re riff oriented. We come up with riffs, and see how they work together and bridge them together with other riffs. That’s just the kind of music we do. But when it comes to the recording of this thing, we took a totally different turn than we usually do. We didn’t do pre-production or demos and shit. We just went in there and wrote as we went along and had a great time doing it. I’d love to do it again that way.” Continue reading

“Twisted Prayers” is GRUESOME’s second full length release and wherever the hell Chuck Schuldiner is, he has this thing on full blast and is throwing up the horns. If you think this band is simply a Death tribute band, a Death cover band, or a gimmick band, you are really missing out on some really good death metal. Gruesome not only pays homage to Chuck Schuldiner and Death by keeping the attitude, the riffs, the overall old school death metal vibe, but they do it really really fucking good.
