Inspired by the Friday the 13th franchise, Crystal Lake is the newest song from Werewolves in Siberia… and it’s “pay what you want” only on Bandcamp.https://werewolvesinsiberia.bandcamp.com/track/crystal-lake
Welcome to Crystal Lake. Head in for a swim, maybe take a hike in the woods. Just make sure to watch your step. You might run into an old inhabitant of these grounds. Some say he was a myth. Some say he was killed. Some say he still lurks around here… Stalking… waiting…
“There is a fifth dimension, beyond that which is known to man. It is a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity. It is the middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition; and it lies between the pit of man’s fears and the summit of his knowledge.”
Grab The Fifth Dimension for FREE right now. This song was written specifically for 5d-blog.com’s YouTube channel and podcasts.
There will be some new stuff hitting the Bandcamp page soon. What will it be? Time will tell.
Fangoria Magazine has been purchased by a new publisher and is coming back from the grave this October. The new publisher, Cinestate, is hellbent on returning the iconic magazine into just that, a physical magazine you can hold in your hands and drool over time and time again. Horror fans around the globe are rejoicing at the news and I’m hopeful that the excitement stays past a few issues, as the art of magazines has been tossed aside for the quick fix of online news.
Unfortunately, the new publisher has also decided to do away with Fangoria Musick. I can’t say I’m surprised or even disappointed. Their main focus should be bringing Fangoria fans the perfect product before worrying about side ventures like Musick. That’s my point of view, anyway.
I’m grateful to the people who pushed Fangoria Musick from behind the scenes and gave me the opportunity to have my music associated with one of the biggest names in horror history. Not one, but two albums with the Werewolves in Siberia name were released through Fangoria and I’ll always be able to know I had that association. It was a low point for the magazine and Musick never seemed to gain any traction but it was still there.
Personally, I’m excited to have Fangoria back with fresh, new blood and a hunger to return to its place as horror royalty.
It’s a new year and there hasn’t been a WIS update since releasing The Thing That Goes Bump in the Night last October. While I’ve been quiet, there are some things in the works. A few new songs have been done for The Monster Guys’ podcast (TheMonsterGuys.com) and the 5D Blog’s new YouTube show & podcast (5D-Blog.com). Those will be available for download at some point. However, right on the horizon is a brand new space exploration-themed EP, Exploration: Red Space.
I’ve been big on the idea of doing EPs as “name your own price” on Bandcamp as sort of a thank you to everyone who has supported WIS through the years. This will be no different. These six songs may have a slightly different feel than you’re used to from WIS as they’re definitely more sci-fi in nature than they are horror but I think you’ll all dig it.
There is no definite date scheduled for release. Basically, as soon as the album comes back mastered, it’ll get a few listens to make sure everything is right then it will be available. I’m hoping this will be early this coming week.
Sorry for the lack of updates. Been busy with a lot lately. The Good news is that this Friday the 13th a new WIS album hits. Entitled The Thing That Goes Bump in the Night, it’s sort of a John Carpenter helps Charles Bernstein make the A Nightmare on Elm Street soundtrack vibe. A couple reviews have hit if you’re interested in reading what some have to say about it.
Of course, October wouldn’t be complete without the WIS regulars. The Horror Soundtrack Mixtapes are back. The Myers and Munster Halloween Bash (Carpenter’s Halloween Theme and The Munsters Theme covers) is back. Lastly, Misfits in Siberia (A Synth Tribute to The Misfits) is back with new addition “Night of the Living Dead” in honor of George A Romero’s passing. As per usual, they’re all completely FREE to download (werewolvesinsiberia.bandcamp.com) so take them and add them to your Halloween playlists.
As a last little bit of info, WIS is on heavy rotation at SCRMRadio.com, an all-horror/sci-fi streaming radio station with tons of content (shows, radio dramas, music, etc.). Give them a listen. A new song was written for 5d-blog.com‘s new YouTube interviews page. Check out the videos to hear “Fifth Dimension”. There’s also a brand new theme for The Monster Guys podcast entitled “Can’t Kill the Beast”. This one is a super-pumped 90’s industrial throwback kind of song. You can hear it on their latest episode.
That’s as much as I can throw at you leading up to the big release on Friday. See you then!
