VUUR – Days Go By – London

If there is one release I’ve been really looking forward to, it has to be the debut album from VUUR. The new band with veteran Anneke van Giersbergen (ex-The Gathering) on vocals. Their first album is set to release this fall.

Ayreon – The Source

Ayreon – The Source

As promised, I finally had some time to sit down a few times and let the new Ayreon release ‘The Source’ wash over me. And oh boy, does it deliver. Ayreon is perhaps best known for his complex stories running through his albums. And ‘The Source’ is no exception, as it fleshes out the lore … Read More

Night Of The Lepus (1972)

Night Of The Lepus (1972)

The b-movies from the fifties gave us a lot of things to feel scared about. Well true, mostly radioactive monsters. But they didn’t gave us one thing to be really scared about. This gem from the Seventies makes up for it as a population of huge killer rabbits terrorizes the Arizona countryside. Be scared, be fluffy scared!

Ayreon – The Source

Finally it has arrived, a new Ayreon. I will post a full review about it after I have had a change to listen to it a few more times. But a tiny preview of my opinion: it’s awesome! And for those living in the digital age. Go give it a listen on Spotify!

Did I forget something… ah yeah… a giant radioactive octopus.

The Gathering – TG25: Live At Doornroosje

The Angry Red Planet (1959)

The Angry Red Planet (1959)

For a few years now I’ve been a dedicated listener off the Film Sack podcast. For those that are not familiar with it, it’s a weekly show in which 4 dudes watch and review a movie from the depths of movie history, a long forgotten horror flick from the seventies, or an under appreciated gem from last year. Last week it featured “The Angry Red Planet”, and I also couldn’t leave this science-fiction vehicle untouched.
