DARK AND GOTHIC MUSIC:
Fangs on Fur
This deathrock, post-punk band hails from Los Angeles. The vocals are by "F Girl" and "F Boy." Check out their song "Snake" on YouTube.
Irony of Fate
An alternative music, fashion and lifestyle magazine. Very slick, beautifully produced and well written. I'm impressed! You can read the current issue (May/June 2014) at this link. Current articles are on the Johnny Hollow band, witch house band Fostercare, and pin-up girl clothing. The magazine is currently embarking upon a Kickstarter to get funding for producing print issues.
An online horror and dark fantasy magazine. The current issue includes Black Window, by Lane Robins, which you can read or listen to; Death and Death Again by Mari Ness; and The Misfit Child Grows Fat on Despair by Tom Piccirilli. Also: Nonfiction artist profiles, editorials and interviews. Very well done magazine!
An online magazine that covers goth, electro and industrial music. Current postings are focusing on Everything Goes Cold, Peter Murphy's Lion album, and a couple postings on Cocksure. There are articles with concert news, album reviews, and musician interviews. Worth a long look!
Tenebra - The Art of Darkness
This Facebook page seeks to promote dark and gothic artists, models, music, and movies. The page admin encourages you to contact them with your suggestions. They're currently featuring art by CrimsonnOnyxx and Metatonia Art Gallery.
Goth Fly a Kite
What a cool idea! Goths in Providence, Rhode Island are meeting in a park on August 2nd to fly kites. Someone is offering to make coffin-shaped cookies, and a thunderstorm is likely.
Shrouds and Shadows Tour
I was so bummed that I was out of town when the Shrouds and Shadows tour came to town. The show consists of three awesome cover bands: Dead Souls (the Joy Division tribute band), Spellbound (the Siouxsie tribute band) and The Reptile House, who cover Sisters of Mercy songs. The next few shows will all take place in various cities in California. Go if you can and are so inclined!
HALLOWEEN AND HAUNTED HOUSES:
The Big Scary Show Podcast
This is a haunt industry/haunt hobbyist, horror and what sounds like metal music related podcast. I couldn't make it through more than a few minutes because of the heavy metal background music, multiple repeats of the name of the show, and overly dramatic fake cackling in the background. But it does sound fairly professional and I bet a lot of you would enjoy the interviews with the home haunters. Currently on episode 59. I think it's awesome that they did a show on Scares That Care Weekend.
Brian Keene is known for his 2003 zombie novel, "The Rising." He's currently attending Monsterama in Atlanta, editing the Operation: Ice Bat anthology, and just gave a talk at the Richmond Edgar Allan Poe museum.
A horror genre blog with commentary, news, interviews, and convention reports.
Horror Conventions News
News and announcements on upcoming horror conventions, fan events and happenings. Updated a few times a day.
A Facebook group for fans of author H.P. Lovecraft. Over 2000 members have joined up. Thomas Broadbent does a fantastic job of moderating this group and keeping members on topic (avoiding spam).
Horror Host Magazine
I would tend to describe this more as a blog than a magazine. Anyway, it's really cool. Learn about horror hosts on radio and TV, check out a gallery of anthology hosts, shop for horror related gifts, and stop by their Pinterest boards.
This horror blog covers games, books and movies, plus shares interesting content they found in the horror blogosphere. Recent posts include a comic review of Under the Flesh, a movie review of Afflicted, and a review of the movie Daniel, which I hadn't heard of yet.
