Marvel is releasing another Wolverine origin tale from the stellar creative team of Kieron Gillen and Adam Kubert this November. “Origin II” takes place just after the events of “Origin” and it sees James Howlett (Logan) as he lives among the wild wolves. The series takes a look at the beastly side of Wolverine, but balances it with his struggle to find humanity in a world before mutants were more prevalent. Take a look at Kubert’s artwork below for issue #1. READ MORE
I have heard of so many different genres of metal it’s come to a point that I need a symbolic road map to make my way through it all. Is something progressive tech metal or is it djent? Is it grindcore or goregrind? The list goes on and on. However, there is a new genre that I was introduced to today that may very well stand out with some ease: Neadercore.
That’s what Kansas City Bigfoot/Sasquatch-themed death metal band Troglodyte classify themselves as. And with their imagery and attitude, I’d say they’ve hit the nail right on the head.
For all you lovers of the giant hairy folk who want to hear the music of their people (people?), head on below to stream the entirety of the band’s first album Welcome To Boggy Creek. You can also snag their latest album Don’t Go In The Woods here. READ MORE
Electronic Arts has a massive Dead Space sale going on right now with discounts on all three games and their DLC. On Origin you can grab Dead Space for $10 (down from $19.99), Dead Space 2 for $10 (usually $19.99), and Dead Space 3 for $41.99 (regularly $59.99). The first game is only available as a Windows PC download, but the other two are available on PC, PS3, and Xbox 360. All of the DLC is down to $3.49 (usually $4.99) each. If you’re still on the fence about Dead Space 3, I suggest reading what Brittany had to say about it.
While ousted producers Dan Lin (Sherlock Holmes, Gangster Squad) and Roy Lee (The Departed, The Strangers, The Grudge) move forward with their lawsuit against Legendary Pictures, newly hired screenwriter Frank Darabont (Shawshank Redemption, The Mist, “The Walking Dead”) is hard at work on his pass of Legendary and Warner Bros.’ Gareth Edwards directed Godzilla remake.
Darabont has to be in a bit of a rush (the film starts shooting in March), but he took some time out to speak with io9. The conversation is encouraging. “What we’re trying to do with the new movie is not have it camp, not have it be campy. We’re kind of taking a cool new look at it… We want this to be a terrifying force of nature. And what was really cool, for me, is there was a very compelling human drama that I got to weave into it. It’s not that cliched, thinly disguised romance or bromance, or whatever. It’s different, it’s a different set of circumstances than you’re used to seeing.” When pressed on if he was going to connect Godzilla to a different contemporary issue he replied, “Yes I am, but I’m not going to give it away.”
Interesting. Godzilla is still (sort of) expected to hit theaters May 16th, 2014. READ MORE
Disclaimer: I’m friends with Pangea Piercing but Bloody-Disgusting is in no way involved or connected with them.
It’s harder to get more metal on the road than actually getting metal put in your face WHILE on the road, am I right? Well, Dave McGraw, drummer of deathgrind band Cattle Decapitation, seemed to think the exact same thing. Making a quick stop while on tour with Origin, Battlecross, Rings Of Saturn, Decrepit Birth, and Aborted, Dave went ahead and got his nose pierced at Pangea Piercing in Ann Arbor, MI at the Detroit tour stop. Check out the awesome video below! READ MORE
For better or worse, it’s growing increasingly common to post on Ridley Scott’s Prometheus almost every day. Sometimes twice a day. Such is the glut of material that surrounds the film. But featurettes like this one – entitled “Origins” – are well worth your time. As brief as it is, it’s always a pleasure to hear Ridley Scott and Damon Lindelof wax philosophical about the big idea in their Alien prequel.
“With ‘Prometheus,’ Scott creates a groundbreaking mythology, in which a team of explorers discover a clue to the origins of mankind on Earth, leading them on a thrilling journey to the darkest corners of the universe. There, they must fight a terrifying battle to save the future of the human race.”
In theaters June 8, Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender, Charlize Theron, Idris Elba, Sean Harris, Guy Pearce, Kate Dickie, Rafe Spall, Logan Marshall-Green, Benedict Wong, Emun Elliott, Ben Foster, Patrick Wilson all star.
We are extremely excited to bring you the exclusive music video premiere for Cattle Decapitation‘s Kingdom Of Tyrants! This track comes off their upcoming album Monolith Of Inhumanity, which hits stores May 8th (pre-order here). This video shows heavy influence from Tetsuo: Iron Man which if you have seen it you’ll totally understand where I’m coming from. That aside I’m very excited for this video to be seen, Cattle Decapitation is one of the best metal bands out there right now. Read past the break and enjoy! READ MORE
Earlier today a product banner for Crysis 3 appeared on EA’s digital store Origin, before it was promptly taken down. Thanks to NeoGAF and the Print Screen key, the banner is still very much alive on this vast and knowledgeable bundle of tubes we call the Internet. EA then commented on the accidental reveal, saying “The best kept secret in shooters just can’t be contained. Stay tuned for more information on April 16.” We don’t have any information yet, but it sounds like we won’t have to wait long to hear about the sequel to a pretty fantastic shooter. READ MORE
