Exclusive: Terror Universal Dare You to Look Through the Mirrors

Published

on

Alright horror metalheads, it’s time to raise those devil horns and get ready for some Terror Universal! On hand we’ve got the exclusive video premiere for the track “Through the Mirrors”, which comes from the band’s album Make Them Bleed. Directed by Wacy Jahn, the video mixes band performance with the hallucinations and troubles of a man who clearly has some issues going on.

Jahn tells us about making the video, saying, “As a director, I was given the freedom to give my visual interpretation of what the song meant to me personally. The inner self that tortures the outer self into being something different no matter the cost. Now mix a twist of insanity into the recipe and you get the “Through the Mirrors” official Terror Universal music video.

Band member Massacre adds, “I am very pumped to be releasing the “Through The Mirrors” video, as this track is one of my favorite songs on our new album ‘Make Them Bleed’. This song showcases many of Terror Universal’s diverse sounds, as it’s brutally heavy, and also has a very anthemic and memorable chorus.

Made up of current and past members of Machine Head, Ill Niño, Soulfly, and Upon A Burning Body, Terror Universal is a metal band dedicated to combining their love of all things heavy with their passion for horror. Make Them Bleed also features guest appearances from bassists John Moyer (Disturbed) and Tony Campos (Static-X).

You can buy Make Them Bleed on Bandcamp.

The Sinking City Update Dives Into the Cthulhu Mythos That Drives the Game

Published

on

If you’ve been following our coverage of Frogwares’ The Sinking City, you’ll know that it’s probably my most anticipated game not just of the year but of a long, long time! An open world game that lives in the aesthetic and atmosphere of H.P. Lovecraft? Consider me 100% hooked! This game ticks all the boxes of my love of horror and my love of gaming.

A new update video has been released and this one goes right into the ways that H.P. Lovecraft and his works directly influenced the game, the developers and the story players will experience. On top of that, it also goes into how Lovecraft’s themes inspired the creators at Frogwares to forge their own paths and create their own mythology and terror. It’s a wonderful video because we get to see these people take an established universe and build upon it with reverence, respect, and passion.

Seriously, if The Sinking City isn’t on your radar, you’re going to be missing out when it’s released.

Synopsis:
The Sinking City interprets and develops the themes that Lovecraft explored: the fear of monsters and the unknown, the search for occult truths and madness. In the game, players step into the shoes of a private detective investigating the disappearance of an expedition to the imaginary town of Oakmont, Massachusetts. Oakmont is a city experiencing unprecedented flooding due to supernatural forces, leaving a large portion of the city submerged. Secret societies, dangers, intrigues and monstrous creatures will stand in your way…
