Sunday Slaylist: Freddy vs Jason Halloween Special

October 26th, 2014

Freddy Vs Jason Thrash Hits

Last week’s Sunday Spotify Slaylist got us thinking – horror films and heavy metal have a long and established history together, and while Judgment Night is definitely an interesting soundtrack to look at for its historical significance in pairing modern rap and rock together pre-nu metal, it definitely wasn’t a horror film. With this being the last Sunday before Halloween proper, we figured we needed to address this by looking at the soundtrack to something unashamedly Halloween-ish.

In Flames cancel UK & Ireland tourdates

February 18th, 2009

Swedish metal gurus In Flames have been forced to cancel their upcoming April/May tourdates for the UK and Ireland with Cancer Bats.

UPDATE! Cancer Bats are still intending on coming over here and playing some shows though. We’re guessing it’s because their flights are booked and their lives have been put on hold, they may as well get over here and cause some carnage!
