Pumpkin Guts 2

October 28, 2014

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. Get it here.

Camp Blood

October 1, 2014

October’s here and I’m pretty stoked to announce the release of Videogram‘s Halloween track Camp Blood. Created as a “nudge nudge, wink wink” to the fellow horror fans, it’s a tribute to the iconic Friday the 13th series and sort of a mix of the disco theme of Part 3 and Michael Jackson‘s Thriller (or at least that’s what I’ve been told).

Available via my Bandcamp along with iTunes and Amazon, there’s more streaming services coming later this month. Make sure to check it out and the video (using footage from Indonesian knockoff Srigala) below.

October

September 14, 2014

Hey, Sunday! For some odd reason starting this post had me thinking of the SimpsonsSunday, Cruddy, Sunday episode, which has nothing to do with either football or my state of mind – ’cause quite frankly I am having a blast right now – but that’s the way the creative mind works I guess. And the Trio track was just something that seemed fun.

So, October seems to be the month where lots of things are happening. I am keeping quite busy finishing up three different physical releases for Videogram plus a digital Halloween-themed one, so you wanna talk about flooding the market, ha ha ha. I’m just keeping my fingers crossed there’ll be a demand for it because I am working like crazy and hate to see that amount of time, energy and effort going to waste.

One thing that won’t happen though is the Haunted House of Horror mixes I’ve posted on Mixcloud for these past two years. There just isn’t any time for it and since I usually wanna spend a couple of months culling the tracks and work on in-between songs FX I figured I’d pass on it this year. But part one and two are still online so I’m sure I’ll spam the crap out of it re-post both of them later on. And as an added bonus you can finally embed the web players on WordPress!

Also, I received an email earlier this week from Austrian director John Brito. Seems like the first episode of Shadows of Prey is ready to premiere (don’t have a set date, though). I’ve already seen it and think it turned out really good. More episodes are in the works and I’ll start culling together the tracks I created for the series and release them digitally as an EP as soon as possible. Maybe in …October.

Well, with me working double time to add some new, cool Halloween-themed designs to my page on Society 6, I’ve also had the time to browse and see what other artists are coming up with.

Visiting the page and searching “Halloween” generates some 50+ pages, and here are just some of the cool stuff I’ve found. Check them out:

The Black Cat and The Jack-o-Lantern by Danita Art. All of her work is just gorgeous. Well worth a look!

Fans of cult classic Return of the Living Dead should get themselves Tarman by Object Unknown. Cool stuff!

Bun-o-Ween

October 4, 2013

Well, here’s something that’s both funny and cute: Union Pool‘s series Bunnies. Created and produced by Jennifer Shiman, these animated shorts re-enacts various films in one minute or less – with an all bunny cast.

There’s tons of bite-size toons to be enjoyed – all available via their official YouTube channel – but considering the season I chose to focus on the more (classic) Halloween side of things. Check out Evil Dead II, Alien, The Wolfman, Texas Chainsaw Massacre (although I’m a bit miffed they chose the remake), The Shining, and George Romero‘s Night of the Living Dead.

How ’bout one more to sink your teeth into?

October!

copyright Sellergren Design 2013!

Well, I’m probably not anywhere near as stoked about October being here as Eva Halloween, but I’m pretty giddy about my favorite month finally arriving. Mostly because now’s the time when you don’t have to feel bad if you spend a Friday evening lying on the couch watching a few select horror movies – something that’s just perfect with the dark and the cold slowly creeping in.

This month will see me adding a nice chunk of Halloween-themed artwork to both my Society 6 as well as Red Bubble (I love the sticker format!), and I decided that instead of spamming this blog every two seconds – which lately’s got me feeling like a one trick pony – I’d advise you to join me on Facebook at www.facebook.com/SellergrenDesign to keep track of what’s happening as I’ll post news a couple of times each week. That way I can finally get back to posting other stuff here.

Speaking of which; The top image was the first out of a batch of classic skulls inspired by Impko!, if anyone remembers those. Entitled Skull 01 (yeah, I know, not the world’s most imaginative title) it was mainly intended as a sticker, but then I thought “what the hey?” so it’s also available in the usual formats such as art prints, t-shirts, iPhone skins etc. Again, join up on my Facebook page to get the latest news. And now for The Misfits‘ classic:

Call Me Greenhorn – The Ghost of Lee Van Cleef

September 30, 2013

copyright Sellergren Design 2013!

Well, fall’s here and with some 30 days left ’til Halloween I thought it was time to release this lil’ baby: Call Me Greenhorn‘s The Ghost of Lee Van Cleef! Three tracks in total mixing Halloween novelty music with spaghetti western tunage – all honoring cinema’s proverbial bad guy.

This has got a pretty unique feel to it, and I haven’t listened to it in a while (this was written and recorded in June, which in my time was some 2,000 years ago, ha ha ha), and I think it holds up pretty nicely. The second track Time Out, Clint! especially, since it marks the time when I really started getting the hang of the organ and managed to get some serious noodling going on.

Available on Bandcamp here, you can give the title track a spin below and via my SoundCloud. Spread the word.
