A Boy Band Kills Our Favorite Reindeer in “I Think I Killed Rudolph”

Published

on

The new movie There’s Something in the Barn seems like a tongue-in-cheek holiday horror movie. It’s like Gremlins but bloodier and with gnomes. Now there is a song on the soundtrack that captures the humor and horror of the movie called I Think I Killed Rudolph.

The ditty is a collab between two Norwegian boy bands: Subwoofer and A1.

Subwoofer was s Eurovision entrant in 2022. A1 is a popular act from the same country. Together they killed poor Rudolph in a hit-and-run. The humorous song is a part of the film which follows a family fulfilling their dream, “of moving back after inheriting a remote cabin in the mountains of Norway.” Of course, the title gives away the rest of the movie and it turns into a home invasion — or — a gnome invasion.

There’s Something in the Barn releases in cinemas and On Demand December 1.

Duran Duran’s Halloween-Inspired, ‘Danse Macabre’ is First From New LP

Published

on

Whether you were around in the ’80s or ’90s or not, you must have heard about Duran Duran, the British pop band that, at one time, was just as popular as the Beatles.

The group just announced their 16th studio album, Danse Macabre, and have teased it with the title track which you can listen to below. What is interesting about this LP is that it was inspired by Halloween and all the weird things that happen during that holiday.

“The song ‘Danse Macabre’ celebrates the joy and madness of Halloween,” said Nick Rhodes, the band’s keyboardist and vocalist. “It is the title track of our forthcoming album, which gathers together an unusual mix of cover versions, reworked Duran Duran songs and several new compositions. The idea was born out of a show we played in Las Vegas on October 31st, 2022. We had decided to seize the moment to create a unique, special event…the temptation of using glorious gothic visuals set to a dark soundtrack of horror and humor was simply irresistible.”

He adds: “That evening inspired us to explore further and to make an album, using Halloween as the key theme. The record metamorphosed through a pure, organic process, and not only was it made faster than anything since our debut album, it has also resulted in something none of us could have ever predicted. Emotion, mood, style and attitude have always been at the heart of Duran Duran’s DNA, we search for light in the darkness and darkness in the light, and I feel we have somehow managed to capture the essence of all of that in this project.”

Danse Macabre doesn’t only have original material but contains some reworks and covers as well: Billie Eilish’s “Bury a Friend,” Talking Heads’ “Psycho Killer” (feat. Victoria De Angelis of Måneskin), The Rolling Stones’ “Paint It Black,” Siouxsie and the Banshees’ “Spellbound,” Cerrone’s “Supernature,” and The Specials’ “Ghost Town,” and a Rick James-inspired bop “Super Lonely Freak.”

The album is due out on October 27.

Drummer Roger Taylor hopes fans will listen and have a new appreciation of them, “I hope you take a journey with us through the darker side of our inspirations into where we’re at in 2023. Maybe, you’ll leave with a deeper understanding of how Duran Duran got to this moment in time.”

Watch ‘Conjuring’ Star Vera Farmiga Nail Slipknot’s Demon Voice in ‘Duality’ Cover

Published

on

Vera Farmiga, who has starred in three Conjuring movies, has a good idea of how a demon should sound. Recently, she sang Slipknot’s Duality at a Rock Academy show in Kingston, New York. She impressively matched Corey Taylor growl for growl.

Prior to singing Duality, Farmiga told the audience, “I’ll tell you one thing: This music program is one thing we can’t get enough of. We really do have the time of our lives.”

Watch the cover below – she starts singing a little after the 1 minute mark.

During the performance of Duality, Renn Hawkey (her husband) played the keyboards. Later in the show, the couple switched roles, with Farmiga playing the keyboards as Hawkey sang The Killing Moon by Echo & The Bunnymen.

Farmiga posted videos of both the Slipknot and Echo & The Bunnymen covers on her Instagram page. She also praised the Rock Academy, saying, “Best. Music. School. On. The. Planet. Enroll your kids now. And why let them have all the fun?! Enroll yourselves! Come learn. Come grow. Come play. Come have so much fun.”
