Pumpkin Guts 2

Check it out: Just in time for Halloween UK label Graveyard Calling releases their second installment in the freebie compilation series Pumpkin Guts. Featuring all sorts of horror-inspired sounds, this 26-track album offers everything from "hellish horrorpunk, sinister synthwave, demonic dubstep and devilish disco" - including Walpurgisnacht off my first Videogram album.

Camp Blood Reviews II

So, second week in on the release of the Camp Blood single it's time to collect the latest reviews and plugs it's been receiving. Once again, I'm pretty damn stoked by the reception and am keeping my fingers crossed this'll continue until October 31st.

Rue Morgue gave it a nice plug on their website, urging their readers to "grab your hockey mask and spear gun and check it out", The Broke Horror Fan added you should play it if you "Want the trick-or-treaters to dance to your door", The Horrormovies Blog gave it a much-appreciated plug and UK's The Rotting Zombie gave it a nice plug calling the video editing "really well done" and the track "a catchy little three minutes." Links are below so make sure you check them out.

While on the subject of the Halloween track, it's now available via both Deezer and Google Play. Get it here and here.

Camp Blood Reviews

Well, the first week since the launch of Camp Blood has passed and I figured I'd make a round up of the initial batch of reviews that's been coming in. The response to the track has been thrilling to say the least. It seems like both the horror community and fans "got" the song immediately, which is great 'cause that was my ambition.

The Year of Halloween gave it a plug in the October news post Something Wicked This Way ComesFriday the 13th: The Franchise called the track "great" and summed up the video as "gold", Horror Sci-Fi & More wrote a short-but-sweet plug stating it is a "special Halloween treat for the Friday the 13th fans out there" and I really like The Horror Movie Maniac's pretty humorous blurb "filled to the brim with screams and plenty of thrills that'll allow you to show off your "killer" dance skills."

Next came Bloody Disgusting's Get Your Jason Voorhees Groove On With Videogram's "Camp Blood" that really had my Bandcamp stats exploding, summing up the track as "catchy", "total 80's horror synth" and "perfect for your Halloween party!" The Scream Review wrote a nice piece about the single, calling it a "gem" "that really sets the tone for horror inspired music", and earlier today Cinema Slasher posted a review calling it "even more hilariously awesome than you'd probably expecting it to be." Check them all out!
