More from Tormentor #1

Tormentor comics #1 is a true modernist comic. 3 stories told through an uncertain discontinuous way reminiscent of stories such as "Night Thoughts of a Classical Physicist" by Russell McCormmach and "The Trial" by Franz Kafka. Truly a unique comic that will blow your mind and change your idea of what the medium can do. Below are some more pictures from Tormentor #1!

Email me your address at to get a free physical copy!!

Blood Freak Rules

How unfortunate it is that “Blood Freak” is not more popular. They should be much more loved with their 4 albums since 2003. 4 albums of momentous gore and horror are all gems. They are signed to Willowtip records, which truly has their shit together, and played Maryland Deathfest last year to a very friendly and appreciative crowd. Their newest album “Mindscraper” is a fantastic example of a great horror death metal album. Chugging away death metal riffs, lots of growls and gurgles, and the surprising thrashing solo makes this album pretty fucking sweet.  

Just look at the fucking cover!

...and just listen to this

You are welcome.

FUN #5


While traveling along the great network of tubes that is the internet I came across a wonderfully sick magazine called “FUN”. From the cover I knew that this magazine would indeed be fun. The price for said magazine was simply the shipping, how fucking awesome is that?!?!
            FUN is a magazine loaded with knowledge that should not be known. It contains the secrets of the underground, the unknown, the strange and the weird. The articles vary from “Interesting”, “That’s a good point”, “Are they fucking with me?”, and “The fuck is this shit?” There really is a terrific variety of stories. Also the illustrations that accompany the stories as well as the magazine as a whole, work well to create an atmosphere of insanity. To give you a better idea of what the hell is going in this magazine; here are some of the article titles:

“Roid Rage: The top 10 steroid-induced murders of all time”
“Human Leopard Societies”
“Sieg Hi-De-Heil!”
“Ritual Abuse”
“230,000 Lost Souls”
“FUN Magazine vs Islamo Fascism”
“10 Reasons Why… Falsely accused date-rapists don’t deserve your sympathy”

            Yeah, it’s basically the most interesting thing I’ve discovered from the small press/self-published world. The first four issues are all sold out and it wouldn’t surprise me if this one did soon. A must read for those who crave knowledge of the bizarre.
