ALBUM REVIEW: Chelsea Wolfe – Birth of Violence

The music business is ugly, hard, and not for everyone. You hear this over and over from industry types and even some artists. Still, it’s hard to not pine for the days when record labels were really putting a priority on A & R (artist and repertoire), and nurturing tomorrow’s important groundbreaking artists. Sargent House is one of the few labels that allows talented people to find themselves over and over again. They release music that makes it easy to care and be passionate as fans.

REVIEW: New York Comic-Con 2018

Ghost Cult invaded New York Comic Con for the first time ever this year and it was, in a word a spectacle. It was a feast for the senses, except the olfactory. The only downside to the entire weekend besides the swarm of people like squiddies in The Matrix was the smell. The smell of movie theater butter popcorn, no doubt delights most people like a childhood memory burned on the brain.

New York Comic Con Kicks Off Tomorrow

It’s no surprise that where ever we go and talk to bands and fans of music, they love comics, movies, anime, and everything related. Our greater culture reps all of these things together, not compartmentalized. So this year Ghost Cult is heading to New York Comic Con at the Javits Center from October 4th to the 7th to hang with all the geeks, creators, writers, artists, movie stars, directors, fandom personalities, YouTubers, cosplayers, and also bands and musical artists too! The New York Anime convention is also running parallel to Comic Con too. Many musicians have crossovers to Comic-Con and this year is no exception with Alan Robert (Life Of Agony), Steve Aoki, Andy Black (Black Veil Brides), Babymetal and more will be on hand signing their work, and making big announcements right along with comic companies and movie studios. There are still Thursday passes available, but the rest of the weekend is a sell-out. Check our social channels all weekend for some videos and pictures from the con and our review will soon follow.
