Icons Of Fright’s WRITING MIXTAPE, Part Three: Natty

Everything I do tends to revolve around music. It’s mandatory that I reserve about 45 minutes of my day to unwind with some good tunes and headphones. I can’t even begin my day right if I don’t enjoy music with my morning coffee, so it only makes sense that I HAVE to listen to music while […]

BEYOND FRIGHT: Song Of The Week – DANZIG “How The Gods Kill”

I know, I know. I’m neglected this column and it’s been ages since I’ve shared with you faithful readers a rockin’ tune to kick off your weekend properly. But thankfully, the power of “random play” combined with being stuck in tons of commuter traffic have offered the inspiration behind today’s submission. Besides, I just realized […]

BEYOND FRIGHT: Song Of The Week – DEFTONES “Tempest”

Man oh man am I lovin’ this new DEFTONES album “Koi No Yokan”. It’s one of those records I didn’t even know was coming until right before it came out, which is always the best. It’s like getting that extra gift under the tree a day before Christmas. And like with most records, it takes […]

BEYOND FRIGHT: Song Of The Week – THE DWARVES “We Must Have Blood”

Happy Friday, fiends! It’s time to kick off your weekend right with another rockin’ tune in our “Song Of The Week” column.

Well, despite having to wait another 363 days until the next Halloween, we’re just going to continue keeping things spooky all year round here on Icons Of Fright. So here’s a fun tune […]

BEYOND FRIGHT: Song(s) Of The Week – Sebadoh “Skull” & The Misfits “Skulls”

Happy Friday, Fright Fiends! And apologies for missing the last few “Song Of The Week” updates, but alas, how ’bout I hit you with two instead of one? And since it’s the Halloween season, I’ve opted to go for two with the word “Skull” in the title. One horror themed, one not at all, but […]
