Detective Davis Tillinghast is a modern day Sherlock Holmes, using his keen intellect and powers of deduction to solve the cases no one else can … until now. A series of bizarre and seemingly impossible mutilations have him stumped, the only tenuous clue leading back to the laboratory of his estanged brother Crawford, a crazed genius obsessed with inter-dimensional physics. Crawford has invented an instrument that hyper-stimulates the pineal gland of the brain, making visible the many thousands of parallel universes that occupy our space/time continuum. But unbeknownst to him this machine is also empowering creatures from other realities, giving them the ability to “drift” – travel between dimensions. Davis discovers that a “drifter” has been causing the random mutilations and sets out to destroy his brother’s machine. In the process, Davis is exposed to a vast amount of the machine’s energy, turning him too into a drifter.
Being the music editor for a horror website is quite challenging. If I post something that isn’t rock and/or metal related, people ask, “What does this have to do with horror?” But at the same time, what does rock and metal have to do with horror? Just because they’re “extreme” genres doesn’t mean that there is necessarily a connection. Rather, I like to think that just as horror is a part of our daily lives, so is music. And just like some people prefer one type of horror over another, so to do they enjoy different genres of music. I’m a huge fan of metal but sometimes I like to relax to mellower tunes.
And so it was that last week I had the distinct pleasure of chatting with singer/songwriter YouTube sensation Kina Grannis at the Blind Pig in Ann Arbor, MI.

We sat down to discuss what her future plans are, how she utilizes and views social media, such as Facebook and Twitter, to promote and communicate her music, and, lastly, we discussed gender dynamics in the industry.
