“The Beauty of Horror” Claymation Brings Carnage and Bloodshed to the North Pole

Read article on Bloody Disgusting >

Timed to coincide with a special holiday-themed coloring book release from IDW Publishing, titled The Beauty of Horror: Ghosts of Christmas, creator Alan Robert and animator Trent Shy plan to dismantle the North Pole by unleashing Robert’s gruesome characters upon Santa’s Workshop.

“This will be our goriest film yet, and I’m very excited about that. It’s going to be insane,” says Shy.

“I’m doing some things with animation that I’ve never done before and that makes it even more exciting. There will be blood… lot’s of blood.”

Robert adds, “Having grown up as a kid on all the old stop-motion, feel-good holiday specials like Rudolph and Frosty, it’s especially fun for me to be able to sic Ghouliana on those guys with chainsaws and witchcraft. It’s like an ultra-violent R-rated version of A Nightmare Before Christmas.”

Shy is no stranger to horror claymation, with millions of views under his belt for his other films, he says “The biggest challenge with clay animation is the clay itself. I use different types of clay but most of it is “animators” clay, which is very soft, so the characters need constant upkeep while they’re being manipulated. This is why you don’t see clay being used in stop motion anymore. Most stop motion films these days use latex, silicone, and even 3D printing for characters.”

Robert explains, “It’s mind-blowing to see how it’s done behind the scenes. The amount of time it takes to sculpt each character and the attention to detail required to build the sets… it’s just wild. Claymation is truly an art all in itself. I always knew it was painstaking work, but now I have a new found respect for it.”

“The Beauty of Horror: Ghosts of Christmas Coloring Book” by Alan Robert arrives in stores October 2018 from IDW Publishing.

Life of Agony Announces 'Rise of The Underground' Tour 2018

LOA-Rise-of-the-Underground-Tour-2018-Admat-Web-Quality.jpg

New York’s LIFE OF AGONY has announced dates for a headlining trek called “Rise of the Underground Tour 2018” spanning the USA and Europe. The shows will begin with two sold-out, hometown warm-up gigs April 18th & 19th at Saint Vitus in Brooklyn, and conclude November 2nd as headliners of The Sound of Revolution Festival in Eindhoven, Netherlands. Full list of dates are below.

“With 2018 marking the 25th anniversary of our debut album, we are just so incredibly grateful to our fans for sticking with us all these years and wanted to do something really special for them. We’re breaking out some old fan favorites that we’ve never played before live and hitting cities we haven’t been to in over a decade,” says bassist Alan Robert. “You really can’t beat the crazy energy of a packed, sweaty, tiny club, like we used to play back in the day, so we decided to include some very intimate rooms on this tour, along with the bigger venues, to feel that deep emotional connection again with our die-hard fans. It’s gonna be insane.”

Joining Rise of the Underground Tour 2018 as main support during the September US dates will be Silvertomb, the new band featuring Johnny Kelly and Kenny Hickey from Type O Negative. More support acts to be announced soon.

LIFE OF AGONY emerged from the New York music scene in the early '90s with one of the most distinctive sounds in its genre. Best known for its 1993 metal/crossover debut River Runs Red, the band instantly built a cult following. For over two decades, the group toured relentlessly all over the world, sharing stages with the biggest names in rock, including Metallica, Black Sabbath, Ozzy Osbourne, Foo Fighters, and The Red Hot Chili Peppers. After the much-praised Ugly (1995), LIFE OF AGONY opted for a highly energetic alternative rock approach on Soul Searching Sun (1997) and Broken Valley (2005) – the latter produced by Greg Fidelman (Slipknot, Metallica). Last year, the group released their 5th studio album A Place Where There’s No More Pain (2017) to critical acclaim, debuting at #24 on Billboard’s Hard Rock Album Chart. LIFE OF AGONY has sold over one million albums to date.

LIFE OF AGONY Confirm Release Date For "A Place Where There's No More Pain"

loa-admat-2017-us-spring-final-small Reactivated Brooklyn hard rock legends LIFE OF AGONY are hard at work on their new album and Napalm Records debut A Place Where There's No More Pain. Today the band has confirmed an April 28th release date. The track listing along with pre-order options will be made available soon.

"We're in the final stages of mixing the album with our producer and then we head into mastering sessions with Ted Jensen (ALICE IN CHAINS, MACHINE HEAD, DEFTONES) at Sterling Sound, NYC. This record is a monster and we're so psyched to finally share it come April. It's got such an energy to it. Raging guitar riffs, heartfelt lyrics and killer grooves. We definitely turned things up a few notches in 2017 and it feels great. And I gotta say, we've never been so focused as a band. Before we even wrote the first note, we all knew what kind of record we wanted to make. You can hear that drive and intensity in the tracks and you can feel the momentum building." - Alan Robert, LIFE OF AGONY
