Greetings Boils and Ghouls! We couldn’t think of a better way to follow up our 10th anniversary milestone than by diving right into the Halloween season. In the past, we’ve gone all out, dedicating the entire month to the metallically macabre. This year, we have a lot on our docket but we still want to get into the spirit of the season. With that in mind, Season of Mist black metallers CARACH ANGREN kick off our Halloween festivities. While terrorizing the town, keyboardist Ardek spooked us with scary tales about their latest record and “horror metal”. As a bonus, we re-enter the world of Archie! Back in 2012, the gang had a Halloween crossover story with none other than the Kings Of The Night Time World themselves, KISS! We caught up with artist Dan Parent to get the back story on these back issues. We discuss how the project came about, the store signing he did with Gene and Paul, and his new Kickstarter project Die Kitty Die! Musically, we play some perilous passages straight out of the Necronomicon from BAPTISM, ICED EARTH, ERIMHA, and HENRY MANFREDINI. Horns for Halloween!
