Voorhees Stomp

October 23, 2015

Long time no update! Well, these last couple of months pretty much has been all about Videogram. Finishing up the Pre-Cert LP/CD for Austrian label Cineploit and having it sent off to mastering (plus sorting out the artwork, sending in registration forms to my publisher etc.), I immediately sat down to edit a bunch of videos that will be released online these coming months.

First up was the above mentioned Voorhees Stomp directed by Aaron Romero, and, well, I guess we must’ve struck a chord with both horror and gaming fans with this one, ’cause this tribute to both the Friday the 13th 8-bit NES game and Friday the 13th Part VII: Jason Takes Manhattan really took off, receiving some amazing feedback and write-ups from both the horror and gaming communities, and getting an impressive amount of views as well.

It tickled me to no end seeing it getting a much-appreciated mention on Tom Holland’s Terror Time. Being the writer and director of such genre classics such as Class of 1984, Child’s Play, and, my personal fave, Fright Night (“You’re so cool, Brewster!”), it was pretty damn mind blowing knowing that Tom (along with his son that runs said website) not only seen my work, but also wrote about it. Talk about humbling.

NECA

Then this happened. I swear I did a spit take the morning I saw legendary merchandiser NECA giving the video a shout-out on their official Facebook page and I did a second one when I saw The A.V. Club giving it a write-up online. Seeing our video sandwiched between news about director Robert Rodriguez‘ next project and the end of America’s Next Top Model was surreal to say the least, but I’m pretty damn grateful ’cause it had the video gathering even more momentum.

Which brings me kinda up to date (head on over to Videogram‘s website for more reviews and write-ups). With all this happening, Cineploit decided to start taking pre-orders of the Pre-Cert album earlier than we initially planned. Slated for release on November 13th, the LP and CD are available now, so if you wanna check it out, head on over to their official website and order your copy. For a taste of what to expect, I uploaded a teaser taste on my SoundCloud. Check it out below. Cheers!

Kodak Moment

Well, this really made my day. Not only did House of Monsters‘ director Dawn Brown buy Videogram‘s all-new single Outpost 31 Isn’t Responding, but she also took the time to give it a plug on her official Facebook page. Tres cool, Dawn, and much appreciated!

So, yeah, with both the Camp Blood 10″ pic disc EP and Pre-Cert LP/CD coming later this fall I decided to put out a digital-only single featuring two tracks that won’t appear on my Cineploit debut. If you know your John Carpenter movies – and you should – you won’t have a problem figuring out that it’s a tribute to his 1982 sci-fi horror classic The Thing.

The artwork was created by the very talented artist Van Davis, who’s imagery not only summed up the movie but fit the music perfectly as well, in my opinion. Make sure to check out his work here. The single is available on Bandcamp now, with iTunes, Deezer etc. coming soon-ish. Check it out below and give it a spin on SoundCloud here.

Well, first off, Happy New Year! And did I have a great start or what? I am thrilled to announce that my horror OST-influenced project Videogram is joining Euro label Cineploit‘s roster.

Home of such great artists such as Orgasmo Sonore and Oscillotron, to name just a few, I couldn’t be more excited about joining this label and I am looking forward to getting to work on the second album!
