ARRGGGHHH!!!! Lots of great new stuff is coming up from the horror HIVE, but...I can't really mention any of it yet! Trust me though, some really insane stuff is in the works and I haven't been this excited in a long time. There's stuff happening that is gonna BLOW everything away! Look for some special announcements SOON!

My original vision of this label being a total HORROR/GORE worshipping METAL label is still the same, and the stuff planned stays 110% true to this concept and will NOT be compromised! While other people give up on horror, make fun of it, or say they're "bored" with it... we embrace it even more and take it to the next level of enthusiasm with NO regrets or shame!

Maniac Neil is busy finishing up the recordings for the BLOOD FREAK "Multiplex Massacre" CD and promises us his BEST release EVER! Woah! He told me it's like a mixture of the recent new FRIGHTMARE and BLOOD FREAK releases all in one. Crushing, catchy thrash meeting heavy as fuck oldschool death metal/grind and slow, doomy, Autopsy-style stuff! Expect the usual incredible production and sound as well!

FONDLECORPSE has finished all 5 of their songs for the upcoming split CD with FRIGHTMARE, and as you can hear from the new mp3 posted on their myspace page, this is a band not to be fucked with! It brings me great delight to finally release new music from the best kept secret in underground death/gore metal music! This release will also set the stage for the band's long-awaited full-length album, "Creaturegore", which is already in the works! Stay tuned for more info on the split CD and album soon!

IMPETIGO "Horror of the Zombies" re-issue will come out in the Spring of 2007 to coincide with the band's 20th year anniversary! It's incredible to see the band get back together for a reunion show next Summer. I still can't believe it's really happening. Without IMPETIGO, there simply would be NO Razorback Records, end of story! After the total failure of the Razorback Records fest, this reunion show for IMPETIGO more than makes up for it and I will definitely be at this show ready to headbang to "Dear Uncle Creepy" with devil horns high in the air and all that shit! haha!

Don't forget the LORD GORE represses, and lots of top secret stuff I mentioned earlier. 2007 is gonna be one hell of a year for Razorback. A new era begins!


Head on over to the official FONDLECORPSE myspace page (or the Razorback one) to hear a brand new finished song for their upcoming split CD with FRIGHTMARE, due out on Razorback Records in early 2007! Get ready to be crushed by the Goregnome!

DOOM ASYLUM (1987) DVD coming soon

The cheesy, late 80's slasher flick, DOOM ASYLUM, is coming out in early 2007 from Code Red DVD!

Here's the cover art (above) and info about the upcoming release. I have to say the cover art they've done looks really terrible but then again, the original cover art (posted below) wasn't that great either (but still better than this new one, yuck!!).

Doom Asylum (1987)

“With gory make-up effects, film closely follows the killing-every-7-minutes pattern of slasher pics... considerable black humor... the young cast is energetic.” - VARIETY

SEX AND THE CITY star Kristin Davis makes her historic movie debut in this sexy slasher film! Five teenagers investigate an abandoned mental hospital and encounter an all girl punk band. The party is spoiled when the teens realize they are not alone! “The Surgeon,” a disfigured killer, who was thought to be dead 10 years ago, still inhabits the hospital and puts his autopsy tools to good use to stalk and kill the kids one by one. Code Red is proud to present this film completely uncut for the first time on DVD! Also stars Penthouse Pet PATTY MULLEN (FRANKENHOOKER) and cult scream queen RUTH COLLINS (BLOOD SISTERS, FIREHOUSE).

Running time: 79 minutes.

For the first time in America, GORY UNCUT version

OAR full frame transfer approved by the director

Audio commentary with director Richard Friedman

On camera interview with Richard Friedman and

42nd Street Forever, Vol. 2: The Deuce, is finally out from Synapse Films! I loved the first volume and can't wait to get my hands on this second one. It's a must have if you love vintage horror/sleaze/exploitation trailers and coming attractions!

Check out two cool reviews from Eccentric Cinema and DVD Drive-In!

This book will be THE exploitation film BIBLE, without a doubt! Looks like it will be available in January from Fab Press. Check their web site for all of the ordering info. This thing looks amazing....just read below what it has to offer. Obscure horror/gore/trash/exploitation/sleaze film fans, start drooling NOW!

Built on five years of research, Nightmare, USA explores the development of America's subterranean horror film industry, spotlighting some of the wildest films imaginable from an era unchecked by censorship or 'good taste.' Ranging from cult favourites like I Drink Your Blood to stylish mind-benders like Messiah of Evil and ultra-violent shockers like Don't Go in the House, Nightmare, USA goes where no other in-depth study has gone before, revealing the fascinating true stories behind classics and obscurities alike. Stephen Thrower, author of Beyond Terror, the definitive book on Italian gore maestro Lucio Fulci, has explored the attics and cellars of American cinema, delved beneath the floorboards, peered between the walls, searching for the strangest, most exotic cine-lifeforms... Nightmare, USA is the reader's guide to what lies beyond the mainstream of American horror, dispelling the shadows to meet the men and women behind fifteen years of screen terror: the Exploitation Independents!
