Lovecraftiana in Music (1. part)

From among the vast numbers of horror and sci-fi authors, none is probably more known, but then also unknown in some way, than the famous Providence man, Howard Philips Lovecraft. We might discriminate against some other great authors with this statement, but Lovecraft has created something which inspired not only his friends and later followers with their literary outputs, mainly in the now well-known Cthulhu Mythos, Lovecraftiana reached to almost every cultural area known to a man. In this article we will look into Lovecraft’s influence of the extreme music.
For that purpose I have contacted several bands which in their works are influenced by Lovecraft’s work. Of course, the band list is not exhausting, some bands didn’t respond, some I might have missed…anyway, enjoy the Lovecraftiana in Music! read more

And because friends support each other, I’ve decided to promote this collection of filthy, dirty, unlistenable sounds and noises to you, unexpected readers of Rubber Axe webzine.
Prepare to get dirty. Really, really dirty. You’ve been warned. read more

Grinding with the Video Spinegrinder

Since I‘ve started to get interested into a serious movie watching, I’ve found a treasure of books, magazines and zines to get info from.  And being (still) also an avid book/mag/zine reader, it’s suited my needs perfectly.
One book I’ve found only later, is the gigant paperback called Video SPINEGRINDER. Written by Clive Davies, it was published by Headpress in 2015.

Country or origin? Poland. It doesn’t automatically mean you could expect absolute quality, of course, but in the case of WYROK it just confirms that Polish metal scene is really going strong. read more
