Necrocasticon, where we blend horror fiction with heavy metal. Each week we’ll find a common link between a horror property and heavy metal music and talk about it. Our esteemed panel of experts in the field of metal and all things that are scary includes our host and moderator; fledgling horror writer, veteran podcaster and internet journalist Token Tom Clark, musician Maxx Axe, and horror fan Smoking Walt Hades. Not to mention, each week we’ll feature special guests from the worlds of hard rock music and the horror genre!

Volume 3 chapter 35 of the Necrocasticon goes back in time to 1979. No, it's not a bad Smashing Pumpkins song. It's a year that established itself as one of the best ever in the horror genre... and heralded the era of 80's hair metal.

Tom, Scott and Az dig into movies from Alien to Salem's Lot! Books from King, Herbert, Saul & Andrews! Bands like Motorhead, Scorpions and Triumph putting out important formative albums in metal. All that AND we give the axe blade to a clown.
