Your host, writer Token Tom Clark is joined by our panel of horror and metal experts over at Project Entertainment Network. Maxx Axe, Smoking Walt Hades and Azriel Mordecai. are going back to the 90's this week, to discuss a year that was not the greatest year for anything. Yes, it was horrifying in 1994 and the 90's sucked, but nothing sucked worse than 1994, the year of Forrest Gump, Ace of Bass and a laundry list of bad pop music. There were some gems hidden in that fateful year of monkey dung, and we're here to celebrate them. With the likes of Korn & Marilyn Manson, Pantera and Soundgarden, John Carpenter and Stephen King, 1994 had a few decent entries into the annals of metal & horror history.

While nearly every other podcast on Project Entertainment Network interviewed John Skipp last year, we reached out to his former writing buddy, Craig Spector.
