Read Axes of Evil

Ed Grimoire of magic Robin Dover As a reader and avid horror fanatic I often find myself saturated with supposedly great horror fiction only to be let down by the uality With this anthology I got everything I could possibly want; Horror and Metal Thirty four stories with bite and balls make this a must read Axes of Evil isn't just a book; it's an epic tome of brutality Dale Herring LET THE SHREDDING BEG As I ve mentioned before writing a review for a book written or edited by a friend can be daunting Thankfully all my friends know that I am honest and will call it like I read itHaving just finished Axes of Evil I can say it s really hit and miss I wanted to give it a three and a half but half stars aren t available But here is my assessmentNotation in Crimson Mary Genevieve Fortier Let me start off by saying I hate poetry The only two poems I can even tolerate are The Raven by Poe and When I Heard the Learned Astronomer by Whitman That being said you can add this poem to that list It might be all the Zeppelin references but I thoroughly enjoyed it I don t want to say anyMetallifer and Lucifer by Magenta Nero A really cool tale about the fall of angels and the birth of Hell This was one of my favorites in the anthologyBring Your Daughterto the Slaughter ER Robin Dover An odd tale about a rock band who sacrifice women during their concerts to grow the lead singer s magical powers Until he meets his match It was a little confusing seemed to drag at places and truthfully Ray Charles could see the ending coming a third of the way inThe Collector Greg McWhorter This one was awesome Take an obscure band that seldom plays and obsessed fan on a mission to own every tchotchkes he can find for the band and well pure evil It may make you think twice before checking eBay for that signed guitar pickWidow Ray Van Horn Jr I liked this one A journalist for a magazine is asked to interview a rock goddess Only the interview occurs in the bedroom She is covered from head to toe including a very unusual one on her abdomen the title might give it away Just an interesting tale about sex and deathPoseurs by Sam Reese This one had potential but fell flat A band hits Craigslist to find a female singer to join the band in an attempt to make them famous They find a girl named Succubus well you can probably guess the rest I didAll The Rage by Lindsey Goddard Demon disguised as a rock god in order to suck up souls Meh It was well written but didn t do anything for meStigmata Mania by Russell Holbrook Let me start by saying this story was definitely not my cup of tea It was bizarre to excess I m all for sex I mean who isn t But when the sexual situations go so far from the norm it takes away from the story and becomes distracting and unnecessary This would have been a decent story along the lines of Halloween 3 Season of the Witch A psycho designs a song that turns people into mush and is hellbent on getting it played in order to destroy mankind It was just way too weird for me to find enjoyableUnder the Bus Mimi A Williams Another of my favorites in the collection Be careful who you cross especially if it s a band mate that you ve experienced demon sacrifices with The person you throw under the bus may get their revengeLouder Faster John Claude Smith Even though I didn t get this one it was an interesting read A man looking for a louder head banging band finds one much to his surpriseAll the Hellish Cruelties of Heaven Paula D Ashe Again didn t get this one and it wasn t an interesting read Written in diary form it s an obscure story about a woman following what I think was a serial killerEverybody Needs at Least One Demon Neko A Lilly This one was weird But in a cool way I really couldn t see where it was headed A girl a boy a romp in the bathroom a drugging a threesome bondage and a disgusting description of a castration Oh and did I mention the girl is psychoticRock and Roll All Night Sephera Giron If I had to pick a favorite this would be it A rock singer turned office worker a trip to New Orleans with a coworker and voodoo Does it get better than that Yes it does read this one and find outDeatherz Alex S Johnson Editing an anthology has its benefits you get to include your own story I liked this story and I m not saying that because Alex is a friend of mine Mon is a girl who freuents clubs and is picked up by a rock legend Razor Blakk He take her to his mansion where all sorts of depravity occurs While there is some of the gratuitous disgusting shock treatment as discussed earlier it isn t distracting from the end gameStill Life with Chattering Teeth and People Shaped Things The Reverend Groucho What the hell did I just read Was it a dream Was it drug induced hallucinations Was it a story within a story I don t know I ve never tried LSD but from what I ve read maybe I should have taken a hit before reading this it might have made sense The torture scene at the end was the only thing that was distinguishableExtremophiles Lucy Taylor Maybe it s because I would love to visit the Arctic or maybe it was just well written Either way this was a good tale about survivalThe Chords of Death Norbert Gora And now I m back to hating poetry Yes this one is a poem Didn t get it didn t like itSo there you have it As with every anthology there are going to be good stories ok stories and stories that you think the editor had to be stoned in order to include But that s what makes the world go round If everyone liked everything everyone else did this would be a very boring existence Alex wouldn t have added the stories even the ones I hated if something didn t speak to him through them and who knows they may speak to you as well and that s ok Give this one a try if you want to take a very bizarre trip along a musical highway
