Here’s a small selection of the horror and genre news that caught our eye during the last week …
New body-horror novella, All Internal, from Terence Hannum (Beneath the Remains, The Unholy Bow) released 30 April
Released through Dynatox Ministries comes the latest novella from Terence Hannum (The Unholy Bow). Described in the same breath as Dennis Cooper’s the Sluts and a host of David Cronenberg’s body-horror pieces, All Internal is the story of a cam girl in Florida who keeps waking up in strange locations with no recollection of how she got there or what she has done. Things take an even more sinister turn as she discovers what is inside her, driving her. You can pre-order your copy right now, here.
Working primarily with weird fiction writers such as Jeffrey Thomas, Matthew M. Bartlett and others, Marc Tams’ ‘Hush’ project is a fascinating new approach to accompanying weird fiction. Hush is creating themes and soundtracks to works of weird fiction, so that the author can listen along, spellbound, as they experience books on a whole new level. He has future work in the pipeline with S. P. Miskowski. You can learn more about the work of Hush at the website, here and you can check out one of their tracks, in this case, an accompaniment to Jeffrey Thomas’ ‘A Matter of Truth or Death,’ below.
Mans Wieslander name-drops a who’s who of horror icons in first track of new album Trunk Novel
Swedish musician Mans Wieslander has recently released his new album, Trunk Novel. Ascribing his sound to influences as diverse as Roxy Music, Brian Eno, The Ramones and more, Mans explained: “Since my brother passed away in 2013, I’ve been on a creative (but not commercial;) high; there is something about loss that either gets you going or makes you freeze up. I believe it brought me a clearer vision and a reason for just doing my thing, and I’ve been doing it since, I guess!”
What makes this new release all the more interesting is that the first track, ‘Barron to Wehunt’ name-drops a host of horror icons, including This is Horror’s very own Michael David Wilson and Bob Pastorella. You can stream the album on iTunes, here and Spotify, here.
