I have posted in the past about heavy metal horror movies, a true love of mine, but I worry that no one is going out and renting these films. Tragic, simply tragic. I'd feel like I wasn't doing my job unless people witness the true beauty of these films. I’m talkin’ bout the hack metal songs from these movies. Not soundtrack songs like Dokken’s awesome “Dream Warriors” from Nightmare on Elm Street 3, but songs normally written by some dudes whose only claim to fame is this tiny, little credit.
5. Solid Gold “Blood Tracks” (from Blood Tracks)
This is more of a video shoot that a live performance. I can’t figure out if this is good, I just like the chorus. Ok? The chorus.
4. Holy Moses "Cassie” (from Hard Rock Zombies)
I don’t even know. So awesome. I am glad it is called "Hard Rock Zombies" and not "Brutal Guttural Underground Zombies", because then they can get away with such an emotionally touching song. The movie makes very little sense, but the band makes it all worthwhile.
3. Black Roses “Rock Invasion” (from Black Roses)
You knew Fabio couldn’t contain the evil for too long. From Whitesnake to all out thrash attack, this is what happens when the parents leave the show.
2. Spastic Colon "Virgin Girl" (from Shock 'Em Dead)
I find it hard to believe that the singer knows anything about virgin girls. I really do. Really. But the popish song with just an absurd guitar solo allows me to look past it. You can check out a past post featuring Martin’s wicked audition here. This only loses out because there is no blood and too much spandex.
1. Rocktober Blood "Killer on the Loose" (from Rocktober Blood)
A true classic. A long unnecessary guitar solo opening and on stage killings. Who wouldn’t love to see a decapitation and a disembowelment at a metal show! Also, imdb just told me the original music was written by “Smokey Huff”. That's the stuff.
