I’ve made it pretty clear by now that I’m a huge fan of Skrillex, right? Okay, just making sure. Well, one of my favorite tracks on the More Monsters And Sprites EP is the song First of the Year (Equinox). The first time I heard it, the “Call 9-1-1 now!” scream made me jump a few inches. After that, I was treated to the sound of what can only be described as Transformers hardcore banging it out. So awesome. I mean, c’mon, who doesn’t get excited at the thought of Optimus Prime and Elita One engaging in copious amounts of oil-leaking fornication? Anybody? Any takers?
Four teenagers go on a woods hike and encounter a creepy forest ranger and a crazy old man. The old man is a scientist who had found a mysterious book bound in human skin, the Necronomicon, and when he had read its cryptic symbols it conjured monsters into existence. The teenagers keep the book, and are then persued by monsters, a demonic cult, and the ranger. The ranger turns out to be a red flying devil in human disguise.
