Mutation began as a need to hear an album that no one else looked likely to make.
An album that wallowed in sheer grindcore brutality whilst allowing itself to be lifted by twisted talons of melodic majesty, and, with no loyalty to genre, delve into darker recesses of sonic experimentation.

Featuring the talents of Shane Embury (Napalm Death), Ginger Wildheart (The Wildhearts) and Jon Poole (Cardiacs), with guest appearances from Mark E Smith (The Fall) and Merzbow, Mutation is a an eight man beast that exists to challenge the listener’s preconceived ideas of extreme music.

Mutation will reward your attention with a white knuckle ride that travels at blast-beat speed along rails of industrial mayhem, thrilling with break neck twists and hyper rhythmic turns, guaranteed to leave you breathless and baying for more.

Intense and entirely random, this is an album to be loved by fans of all genres of experimental and extreme music, but especially by the type of listener that needs the parameters shifted a little more to the left.

If you’re waiting for the next step in the evolution of extreme music then look no further.

Mutation is here. We have already begun.

Benicio Del Toro Joins The Marvel Universe In GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY

How do you make sure people go see a movie featuring a sentient tree and a talking raccoon in space? A recognizable cast is a good start. Guardians of the Galaxy has been adding a bunch of intriguing names to its cast, including Zoe Saldana and Glenn Close, who will be playing the leader of the interplanetary cop organization the Nova Corps. But today’s announcement might be the most intriguing because of the promise that this actor has been cast in a role that will bring him into other Marvel movies. Benicio del Toro has joined the cast in what Deadline calls ‘a lead role.’



What part could this be? Some have been saying he’ll be playing Rocket Raccoon, which would actually be delightful - but I have a hard time imagining that character popping up in a lot of other Marvel movies. But what if the role Del Toro has isn’t a hero? It makes quite a bit of sense that he could be playing Thanos, the Mad Titan, who has been set up as the villain of The Avengers 2. A multi-picture deal would lock Del Toro in for sneak bits in other Marvel films, like the upcoming Thor: The Dark World or Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

Having Del Toro as Thanos would be incredible. He’s one of the strangest, most complex and - ultimately - strangely sympathetic genocidal maniacs in fiction, and i think Del Toro could bring something deep to the role. How this would all work - mocap, like Mark Ruffalo did with Hulk? Or just a voice? - isn’t clear, but it sounds like the sort of ambitious thinking that has made Marvel Studios not just the kings of superhero movies, but of pop movie culture in general.

Steven Spielberg named as Executive Producer of HALO: The TV Series

Microsoft held the big reveal of their new console, Xbox One, last night. They’re showed off the impressive new hardware and features of the console, and in the middle of game announcements they dropped a bombshell:

A live action Halo TV series is coming, and it’s produced by Steven Spielberg. What’s more, they’re claiming it’ll be a “premium” show, on a par with Game of Thrones.



That’s big news. Peter Jackson was trying to get a Halo movie off the ground, but it proved too expensive. Now it’s coming to TV? The good news here is that, as far as I can tell, Halo is largely a blank slate. It’s about as willfully generic a property as I can recall. The lead character doesn’t even have a name. But that generic quality gives the show a lot of leeway to be interesting and to bring us some fun sci-fi combat. I’m thinking this is probably going to be a reboot of Space: Above and Beyond, mostly.

The bad news: Spielberg. I know that seems like great news, but if you look at Spielberg’s TV producing credits lately they’re not so triumphant: Falling Skies, Smash, The River, Terra Nova. These are not good shows. I don’t know if it’s coincidence or what (I can’t imagine Spielberg is too involved in any of these, on a day to day basis), but the precedent is clear. Don’t have Spielberg produce your TV show.

More information is surely forthcoming. I wonder if this will be shopped to cable networks or broadcast or Netflix or what. With Microsoft’s emphasis on rounded entertainment with the Xbox One it would be pretty amazing if the show was on demand only through the Xbox. That could be a game changer.

Doctor Who: Matt Smith and David Tennant tease “another character” in 50th anniversary

Billed as a thank you to fans for keeping Doctor Who’s secrets, the BBC has released a clip of the tenth and eleventh (well, as it stands, er, stood… appreciating that we don’t know… as long as… I mean, supposing that… oh, I give up) Doctors chummily discussing what it’s like to be the face of the show, and how their characters rub along together in the 50th anniversary special.

Hey! Fatface! Watch This ANCHORMAN 2: THE LEGEND CONTINUES Teaser

The man they call Ron Burgundy, who loves his “Scotchy, Scotch, Scotch” so much, returns to the silver screen this Christmas in Anchorman: The Legend Continues. (That’s right. It doesn’t come out till 20th December. Sigh.) A little taste of what’s to come dropped on Saturday by way of the film’s official trailer. In it, Burgundy (Will Ferrell) rekindles with his Channel 4 News Team pals like Brick Tamland (Steve Carell) and Brian Fantana (Paul Rudd).

Coulson Is Alive And Well In First AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D. Promo

I feel like none of us are really prepared for how amazing Marvel’s upcoming Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will be. We love Marvel, we trust Joss Whedon (and the people he trusts), and we’ve never really seen a television show that can expand upon and feed into an ongoing movie universe. How is this not totally exciting?
