“As a life long horror fanatic, hosting this show is a dream come true for me!

He contributes a monthly article to Decibel Magazine titled “Richard Christy’s Horrorscope,” where he writes about both horror movies and metal music. Richard is also a heavy metal drummer and has toured with various bands around the world. With his passion and expertise, he’ll share his take on the latest horror movies, honor horror classics, and pay homage to the genre’s rich history.
