An ancient race of lycanthropes has survived to the present day, and its numbers are growing as the initiated convince L.A.’s down and out to join their pack. Paying no heed to moons, full or otherwise, they change from human to canine at will—and they’re bent on domination at any cost.
Caught in the middle are Anthony, a kind-hearted, besotted dogcatcher, and the girl he loves, a female werewolf who has abandoned her pack. Anthony has no idea that she’s more than she seems, and she wants to keep it that way. But her efforts to protect her secret lead to murderous results.
Blending dark humor and epic themes with card-playing dogs, crystal meth labs, surfing, and carne asada tacos, Sharp Teeth captures the pace and feel of a graphic novel while remaining “as ambitious as any literary novel, because underneath all that fur, it’s about identity, community, love, death, and all the things we want our books to be about” [Nick Hornby, The Believer].

Love And Death, the band with former Korn guitarist Brian ‘Head’ Welch, will be releasing their debut album Between Here And Lost on Nov. 20th via Tooth & Nail Records. The album will feature 11 tracks that were mixed by Paul Pavao & Ben Grosse (Marilyn Manson, Disturbed), and Jim Monti (Korn) and produced by Jasen Rauch (RED, Breaking Benjamin). Though no tour dates have been announced, it is said that the band will be touring extensively throughout 2013 to support this effort.
Welch states, “This record was birthed from trials, tribulations, pain, suffering, anxiety, depression, and drama. However, we came out on top and the end result is a very real, raw & honest record. We are so stoked for people to hear it! From our opening song ‘The Abandoning’, to our cover of Devo’s ‘Whip it’, to our collaboration with Mattie Montgomery from For Today on ‘I W8 4 U’, It’s an exciting piece of art and the listener will feel the different range of emotions with the lyrics & melodies of each song.”
You can check out the full track list below as well as their video for the song “Chemicals”. Also, make sure to check out “What To Do If Being Chased By My Top 10 Horror Characters” here. READ MORE

Well, this question, and the potential solutions, is something that Love And Death bassist vALEntin3 has also given a great deal of thought to. Below you will find his list horror characters and what to do should they set their evil gaze upon you. Enjoy!

This last week saw the release of new music from some extremely heavy hitters. Inside you will find reviews for Soundgarden’s first brand new release since 1996’s “Down On The Upside”, Godsmack’s cover of Joe Walsh’ “Rocky Mountain Way”, a new song from P.O.D., the debut single from former Guns N’ Roses drummer Steven Adler’s new band (Adler), a new song from former Korn guitarist Brian “Head” Welch’s new band (Love and Death), as well as the latest release from My Darkest Days. Only one of the songs can be crowned as my pick for “Single Of The Week”, and surprisingly enough, it was a pretty easy choice this week. Want to know which band gets the crown?
