Last night (November, 21st 2022) was the series finale of The Walking Dead on AMC. Based on the comics and graphic novels from Robert Kirkman and Tony Moore (later Charlie Alard), the series ended after eleven years. In a pivotal scene in the episode, the survivors drop the needle of Living Colour’s 1980s Shredding Metal classic “Cult of Personality!” Bits of the song can be heard over the sequence which was a great blast from the past. The video was a staple of MTV during regular rotation in 1988- 89 and has 62 million plus views on YouTube. Also, heard in the episode was Fleetwood Mac’s “Landslide!” The series has often used rock and metal music, notably Motorhead a few years back.

ALBUM REVIEW: Disciples of Verity – Pragmatic Sanction
Music fans love a good supergroup. However, a lot of times the results may vary and the resultant music that felt like it would rule on paper doesn’t translate in the end.

CONCERT REVIEW: Disciples of Verity – Patterns of Decay – Concrete Dream – Behind the Bullet Live at The Kingsland
With the release of two recent singles ‘Worthy’ and ‘Lying to Myself’ from their forthcoming album, Pragmatic Sanction (InGrooves), Disciples of Verity made their debut at The Kingsland in Brooklyn New York. No cover songs needed here, just what I believe is a set from their entire record. It also marks the return of God Forbid skins-man, Corey Pierce (finally). Every time he hit a cymbal, it felt like the kit was holding on for dear life.
