Beyond Fright -The Ramones & White Zombie Do THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE!!

r1

On the previous Beyond Fright entry, I wrote about The Huntingtons’ “Let’s Go to Haddonfield“, a song that was written about John Carpenter’s HALLOWEEN. For this one, I decided to focus on two songs that went in the direction of somewhere else, that place being Texas.  Full of heat, barbecue and some good ol’ fashioned murder […]

Beyond Fright: THE HUNTINGTONS’ “Let’s Go To Haddonfield”!!

H1

Who doesn’t love the Ramones? It’s almost blasphemy to not have some sort of admiration or at least respect for the punk rock pioneers, and like the saying goes, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. While I have been a fan of The Ramones for most of my life, there was a period in my […]

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 MISFITS “Dig Up Her Bones”

Can we just keep the Halloween celebration going? I know it’s November and all but didn’t this one just fly right by? 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 […]

BEYOND FRIGHT: Song Of The Week – ANTHRAX “Only”

Holy crap! It’s already another Friday which means it’s time for another song of the week. And we almost missed it! I had a few tunes in mind, but I’m going to save those for October since they’re definitely more Halloween-ie. For now, here’s one that came on in the car earlier this afternoon and […]
