Title: Garden Dog (Excerpt)Artist: Pariah Carey170 plays
Pariah Carey // Haokah
I wanted to write about Pariah Carey if for no other reason than to lend some very deserving support to the creator behind it all, Jheri Evans. His latest release Haokah is going to be released on cassette by Deathbomb Arc, and it is more nightmarish than I could have ever dreamed (in the best possible way).
If you’ve listened to Pariah Carey in the past, you will know that it is very heavily influenced by film scores of horror movies. On Haokah however, the music takes a much darker turn than before. Here Jheri has removed much of the 1980’s-inspired sci-fi synths and replaced them with brooding, thunderous atmosphere. On “Garden Dog” you can just feel the darkness roll in like an evil thick fog enveloping your surroundings. It squelches any light and before you know it, you are on Pariah Carey’s turf and there is no turning back.
Haokah is like catching the red-eye flight to hell. With two roughly ten-minute tracks it can be a difficult journey for some, but for those willing to take the plunge there is plenty to enjoy here.
Pre-order the cassette from Deathbomb Arc and stream it on Pariah Carey’s bandcamp until it arrives in your mailbox.
Hey guys. Here’s a shameless plug for you. I don’t know if you guys like horror films or not, but this is just in case you do. For the past several months I’ve been silently plugging away at my horror movie blog that I share with Unholy Rhythms and Cool Things I Find. It’s called A Taste of Blood and it’s all sorts of fun. The three of us are the biggest horror movie geeks and we just hope to share our disturbed minds with those who may share an affection for the macabre. So enough rambling. Give us a follow if you feel so inclined. It’ll give us a reason to keep on postin’.
You can watch George A. Romero’s 1968 classic Night of the Living Dead in its entirety on YouTube. It’s no longer copyrighted and is in the public domain, which is why the whole thing is on there in one piece. Believe me when I say that this film is one of the greatest and most influential films of all time. And I don’t mean that in a fanboy sort of way, I mean that literally. There are a million reasons why I hold that it is one of the best, but I won’t bore you with what would turn out to be an essay. So if you really want to know why, you can ask me.
Anyways, if you have 90 minutes to kill, consider watching it.
