Today’s topic will be Hurghada once more, I got the opportunity to help out a friend so why not.

Anyways Golden 5 City, managed by Princess Egypt Hotels had a special Guest and Event yesterday night. The Ukrainian singer Matias came to give a live performance for all guests etc.

Back at home they call him the Ukrainian Michael Jackson, hopefully only by the sense of singing thou!

Anyways I got to be backstage and front-stage and record this event. The cameras given were not something special, but it was the best they had since the big cameras were occupied! So I apologize directly now to you who will complain about quality! Sometimes you have what you have!

Below I’m going to share the links to both the videos and pictures links where these are being uploaded Hope you will enjoy it (IF you didn’t realize it yet the concert was not Metal – Just a Heads-up).

To find out more information regarding the hotel thou simply go to:

02 The Abhorrent

03 For Your Vulgar Delectation

05 Manticore

06 Frost On Her Pillow

07 Huge Onyx Wings Behind Despair

08 Pallid Reflection

09 Siding With the Titans

10 Succumb to This

11 Nightmares of an Ether Drinker

12 Death, The Great Adventure

13 Sinfonia

And here is the Review:

First things first, COF was one of the first metal bands I got into metal in the first place, and still the most loved albums from them for me especially are: Dusk…and her Embrace, Cruelty and the Beast and Midian!

The new stuff has been criticized a lot, and from their last album, well I heard it once and never spoke of it again!

So I was both skeptical and excited going into “The Manticore and Other Horrors

Typical as always with COF is the Intro, this one sounded a bit as a mix of the old days of Dusk… with Midian.

And then literally the Thrashing began, the next two tracks were power and more power, but again Dani’s vocals remain similar to Thornography and after time, I miss the old screeching. Still pretty powerful and fast simply extreme!

Than “Illicitus” came and it got a bit better, kind of a heavy mix as always but also felt Damnation album influence in it. So it started to get interesting.

It’s hard to sum up how this album feels,  Its extreme sure, but old Cradle of Filth might not get the same kicks as we did before, moving with the times, this album is surely better than Darkly, darkly…album from 2011

Song “Manticore” felt a bit darker already, not from the vocals thou, but it had its moments, and once it reaches 3 minutes plus the beat is pretty good and feels pretty solid! Again influence of Thornography can be felt! Similar to the song “tonight in flames”.

The orchestra in the back feels at times kind of influenced by something similar to Midian

It’s hard to grasp what emotions come out of this album, especially with other people feeling differently probably then me. This album happens to be pretty heavy, fast, and merciless. If you enjoy New COF than this is for sure for you! For the older fans, you have to judge yourself!

My favorite songs from this album happen to be “Frost on her Pillow”, “Pallid Reflection” and “Death, The Great Adventure” this track especially felt a bit like nostalgia, a bit!

Should you buy this Album? Well YES and NO, The hardcore fans of COF’s past will not be satisfied as much as they might hope. While fans of New COF, especially if you follow them since: Thornography, than you will enjoy this album. And if you enjoy both sides of COF new or OLD, than I bet you will find something about this album that you will like. But I must admit its way better than the album that came before it!

This review made me feel nostalgic a bit now so Ill finish this review and will go to play for old time sakes MALICE THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS!!!

So buy this album if you believe this is your cup of tea! And we shall see what the future holds!

COF Fans also consider if you are not yet to follow Dani on his official page

Nearing the end of 2012 and Hollywood presents itself with the new trailer for the latest

Marvel Production

Iron Man 3, Coming MAY 2013 (Probably)

The Trailer is easy to spot, G4 TV notification came quick!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5EjG-1U3wqA

But here I let you watch it on youtube!

 

 

 

So here we are again, Tony Stark (played by Robert Downey JR.) Is now suffering post traumatic stress from his post send with a Nuke to space days from the Avengers!

That’s what they tell us, and from trailer is working on more ways of how to get his suit on piece by piece by the way of mind control. Any more cool effects?

 

Ben Kingsley, playing yet another villain, this time the 10 rings of power crazy guy THE MANDARIN!

Blowing up Toney’s suites, house, and probably torturing his love interest Pepper!

 

All cool and good, even Guy Pearce joins in after his Role of Peter Weyland in Prometheus!

 

From what we can see, Iron Man 3 will be a darker, more brutal Story than the former two parts, hopefully thou the sense of Humor Tony always had, has not left him! Even after his home landed on his head!

Wonder what happened thou to Jarvis, the one no one ever talks about! Hope his motherboard won’t fry in the watery grave!

 

In any case, we are keeping a close eye on this Situation!

This is for all gamers and well stealth hunters who love Assassin’s Creed!

First to sum it shortly up in one sentence for the people who have no idea what I’m talking about –

Assassin’s Creed is a historical fiction action-adventure open world stealth video game series that as of 2012 consists of five main games! And is very fucking popular, with great graphics and a lot of fun!

Now that you googled and binged it and are interested in playing, well you are welcome, for the rest of you lets continue.

It has been revealed that a movie adaptation of this series is in works. And that DAVID (aka Michael Fassbender) is a lead role.

Now the main problem, Hollywood sucks at making movies that are based on games, no matter who the hell you let it write or direct, in the end it flops mostly! Why? Because Hollywood wants to make money and not satisfy the minority, which is us gamers, since to him the bigger pot is the General public!

I am preparing another longer article with other movies which are being or want to be adapted from games. Once it’s complete it will be shared here! It’s under construction at another site at this moment!

Even thou us gamers spend millions and millions of dollars etc for games to enjoy our time and to fund the game creators!

Some of the movies Hollywood already fucked up are such titles as DOOM, or Prince of Persia. And I was looking forward actually to a Brutal, Metal Music Fueled, Bloody and Gory Horror style Prince of Persia 2 Warrior Within adaptation, but that we can forget, anyways back to the main subject.

The thing with Assassin’s creed, the problem is first games are designed to fill a gamers 20-40 and more hours of gameplay, story line etc.

A movie has a max of like 2 or 2 and half hours to fill!

To squeeze all that in is hard, fucking hard.

The best way which will never happen is to take hmm say 100 or more gamers, who played the game, play it for the Producers, than the best moments or coolest and really really important parts are chosen and there you go a nice movie based on a game that might work for a lot of people! Especially gamers since we deserve it the most!

But what’s probably going to happen, as Hollywood is known for, they will end up pretty far from the story and Enjoyment!

Here is a probable version of what might happen!

Either the whole plot will be like a game arcade, simulate a Bartenders long lost ancestor memories. Something like the matrix already and will spoil everything. Will try to teach us a bit of history, will cut or blood and cool effects from it, will add some bullshit soundtrack to it. And there you go, pack it and ship it!

Even with Ubisoft on board to prepare it.

What seems a really probable version of this will be (this is after analyzing Hollywood’s mess with making adaptations from games)

They will add fucking time Travel, someone from the future is sent to the past, He wakes up in Mud, does not remember anything, is recruited by Assassins, first half of the movie he will do little tasks, train good and will become ever so better, while probably having really vivid nightmares of his past from the future!

2nd half he is sent to murder the fuck out of some clan of probably even 9 important people, at once, which will probably look like fucking gun-taka for 30 minutes only with swords, stealth and other medieval weapons!

At the end he gets betrayed by the 10th guy, who is the big, big boss, who well surprise is the bad guy who erased his memory and sent him to the past to do his dirty work! The beginning of the movie we learned to trust him and like him, now he is an asshole (TYPICAL)

For the end battle they add Sci-fi and guns, backup from the future etc, a lot of special effects and explosions in both the past and future (their present) and a grand Finally filled with insanity and other shit that tells us, hey this is just the beginning, we need you to go to the past again and collect the same shit he was after (the big boss you just murdered finally with mix of assassin skills and cool mix of heavy guns and daggers)

The end, roll credits, general public likes it, the rest hate it, people do not give a shit, Hollywood makes money and only they remain happy!

But if you kind of think about it from a different perspective, this might be a cool idea!

Hey Hollywood, I’ll write this script for you and you pay me in Advance ok? Rights for this movie idea are expensive! We will just rename it to Assassin’s of the Past and Future, and not of Equilibrium from who we steal some cool moments!

Now a lot of you may disagree with me, in the end I am just human, but think about it for a second, how movies ended up or end up being after being adapted to the Big Screen, this is a probable truth here people!

Us gamers might in the end just pick up on it, save money and make a huge fund and make a better movie then Hollywood ever could, One With the Strength of a Host and more, and since it will not be funded by a major studio we go straight to DVD or Blu-ray and live happy and not so rich. But more Happy!

Feel free to post your comments on how stupid or how great this was to read!

Thanks and till Next Time!

This is a story of a Friend, I’m gonna call MIKE now. And how suppose copyright rules literally bit him in the ass!

In any case we all know copyright rules from back to front etc so this part I do not need to Explain!

So Mike, as a teenager, with a crappy pc, and a lot of time on his hands, was listening and watching a lot of cool Music, such as metal! The time was around 2006 Youtube was not and didn’t need Gmail accounts to use! Or to Log into!

 

So and my friend Mike, using all legal programs he could get his hands on from  a slow internet connection based on his dial-up modem! Was trying out some movie making programs, like Windows Movie maker or Inter video WINDVD Creator!

He took his favorite song, mi it with some clips from commercials, other videos, movies etc. Like people do normally in their spare time and all social media is full of it! Especially Youtube!

In any case he got kind of good at it, made some stupid videos, which he later erased, and then made some Tribute videos, you know Mix of Anime with cool music or just video mix of cool music. Again as everywhere!

So he did a lot of videos, but only 4 were well very cool. And he thought he will upload them on Youtube! Not asking for money or anything, just for the fun, maybe some of the bands will like his work!

And even if not at least some people will watch and say whatever they think!

The four videos published were

Slipknot – Left behind (fan based, mix Compilation of live and actual Slipknot videos)

Slipknot – My Plague (fan based, mix Compilation of live and actual Slipknot videos)

Chimaira – Nothing Remains (fan based video this time mixed with the Manga YU-GI-OH)

Mushroomhead – Solitaire Unraveling (mixed that song which he recorded from a tape player with some computer game videos he played or wanted to play)

He uploaded them, people watched and reacted! The slipknot videos were loved, they got something like 6000 Views in a month or 2 (metal based videos tribute, maybe does not seem like much, but it was much)

Chimaira video was loved to, got many views; even people that were fans of the band and not to big fans of Yu-Gi-Oh gave respect and liked it!

Mushroomhead video also got liked, people respecting the maker. All was basically great, he made some more which never got to be uploaded

Now these videos I even have on my Hard Drive, a Hard Drive now frozen since its slowly dying, so to preserve it its totally unused and preserved!

Back to the topic, he never uploaded more videos, he kind of lost track with a lot of moving, and a lot of changes that happened in his life!

Few years later, he checks back, and most of his Videos are gone! Youtube was doing some weird changes!

And his videos were banned for supposedly Copyright shit and bla bla bla! Now only the Mushroomhead Video has survived this, and is still there, even thou the account cannot be accessed in any way!

And once I get my hands on the files from hard drive I will upload them on our pages of FB etc!

But the funny thing about the copyright, supposedly the bands themselves removed it or something.

That is how much I remember when he showed it to me. I do not believe Slipknot and Chimaira would remove a fan based video which only promotes their coolness and asks for nothing in return!

He may have still a weird nickname stuck on that profile from his old WOW days, which btw he did manage to stop playing! He turned his back and said NO!

Here is the link to the last video surviving on Youtube! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jh6Eq0dWJE8&feature=plcp

6 Years and 2000 views? I think we can do better than that!

In any case keep checking our Facebook page, for uploads of this video and the remaining 3 and hopefully a bonus video never published before J
