The world’s first convention dedicated to the band Ghost will happen in the UK this Halloween in Sheffield. The unofficial fan-organised event will take over the entire Corporation venue with four spaces for performances, galleries, exhibits, and a market!
Ghost Cult caught up with Cory and Meg from Caskey Robbery, to discuss their new album Rituals of Death – out now via Blood Blast Distribution. Having followed the band for a long time, we unpacked the last few years of being a DIY enterprise in death metal, the return of touring, energizing their fanbase with social media, creating sick videos, and finally a track-by-track breakdown of their new album.
The “final” movie in the Halloween film series has been released in theaters, and trust us, it rules! Our return to Haddonfield, Illinois and Michael Myers brough us this awesome movie by Blumhouse Studios, directed by David Gordon Green and produced by John Carpenter, Jamie Lee Curtis, Green, and Danny McBride among others, the soundtrack has several bangers on it. In addition to the classic Halloween theme song and a score by Carpenter and his son Cody and Daniel Davies tracks include “Halloween” by Dead Kennedys, Don’t Fear The Reaper” by Blue Öyster Cult, and “Burn It Down” by Boy Harsher.
October celebrates the return of cooler weather, overpriced pumpkin-flavored beverages, and everything spooky. This October is extra special as the Duke of Spook, Wednesday 13 returns to the land of the living with a brand new album, Horrifier (Napalm Records), just in time to set the mood for Halloween.
The season of the witch is upon us!!!! With Halloween just days away, it seemed more than fitting to check out some new Black Metal. Why not listen to some truly “scary movie” music with my favorite holiday just at hand. With that being said, the new cut from Ghost Bath Is a musical force to be reckoned with.
