In 2017 and 2018, so many movies are rumored to be coming out after so many years and I chose only eight of them to give hype about because there are too many to be overly excited for!

1. Scream V.

The fifth scream, and possibly the final Scream to ever exist, is coming out between 2017 and 2018! The past four certainly have been popular and for many teens and young adults in this modern age, the Scream movies were a big part of their horror-loving lives. The fifth Scream is definitely one of the most looked-forward-to movies coming out in the next year or so.

2. Orphan 2.

The first movie of the Orphan was quite the success as its plot twist, in the end, I won't give it away, certainly caught most of its audience off guard so we are all very excited to see what lies in surprise for everyone in the sequel to the haunting movie.

3. IT.

With all of the clown horrific incidents that had happened in the summer/fall of 2016, having this remake of IT coming out in 2017 in September is definitely questionable. Were all those clowns spotting in real life meant to be a promotion for this upcoming remake? If so, screw you, but we are still very excited to see the new IT.

4. Jeepers Creepers 3.

It's been quite a long time since the first and second Jeepers Creepers came into our lives and we definitely need this third one to tie up any of our loose ends or questions or maybe just to keep us happy and wanting more from this neat, and unique, series of horror movies.

5. Jaws Resurface.

Technology has come so far since the last Jaws movie so I am hoping that the shark features in this new Jaws film will be exquisite and amazing and basically put all other shark movies to shame more so than Jaws has already.

6. Saw VIII.

I LOVE THE SAW SERIES, so I am certainly biased on this movie release. But either way, I know this film is going to be amazing even if it was not my favorite horror movie series because of all the psychological questions the audience still has about Jigsaw and his fatal games.

7. Jurassic World 2.



Anyone who is anyone would be overly excited for a second Jurassic World so shortly after the first that amazed (and annoyed those of us who actually know a thing or two about Dino facts) the populous. This movie is sure to be a wonder to all and probably sell out of the first release night.

8. The Slender Man.



From a simple video game played by millions to a possible hit movie motion picture? This has been quite the built up movie everyone is looking forward to seeing and gaining more information on. I'm sure Slender Man will have a large viewing on its release day.

I hope you all are as excited as I am for these movie releases! I am especially excited that most, if not all, the popular movies rumored to come out in the next year or so are mostly horror or thriller genre films as those are my favorite and hopefully yours too!

Opeth: 'Deliverance' Album Review

'Deliverance' boasts Opeth's darkest and heaviest songwriting in their entire discography
141
views

Line-up:

Mikael Åkerfeldt - vocals, guitars

Peter Lindgren - guitars

Martin Lopez - drums

Martín Méndez - bass

Additional info:

Steven Wilson - vocals, guitars, keyboards, mellotron

Recorded at Nacksving Studios and Studio Fredman.

Engineered by Opeth, Fredrik Nordström, Fredrik Reymerdahl & Steven Wilson.

Produced by Opeth and Steven Wilson.

Deliverance is the sixth studio album by Swedish Extreme progressive metal band Opeth. It was released on November 12, 2002, through Music for Nations Records. The album's total length is 61:50. The band originally intended for Deliverance and their following album Damnation to be released as a double album, but the record company decided against this and released them separately, about five months apart from each other in order to promote them each with the proper amount of time and care.

Opeth's last album Blackwater Park is a masterpiece and instead of trying to make a similar album, the band went in a new direction. Deliverance still features Opeth's classic progressive death metal sound, but the band implemented some noticeable changes beginning with a much darker sounding production, heavier guitars, and a more straightforward death metal approach at times. This was a welcome change that added another unique release to the band's already impressive discography.

Favorite Tracks:

Track 5: "Master's Apprentices"

This is one of Opeth's heaviest tracks that they have ever composed. The main guitar riff and blast beating that occurs throughout the first three minutes of this track is ridiculously heavy and catchy. Mikael's ridiculous low growled vocals sets the heavy mood of this track perfectly. When I thought that this song was just going to be pretty straightforward and heavy, Opeth switches it up and the track goes into a more mellow progressive rock sound with beautiful clean singing and instrumentation. The ending to the track is just as heavy and explosive as the beginning.

Track 2: "Deliverance"

The title track is one of the band's best. The riffs are ridiculously catchy and heavy. Yet again, Martin Lopez begins by blast beating on the drums. Mikael's mix of both clean vocals and ferocious growls show off Opeth's dualism that makes them such a special band. The song's sudden shift between soft and heavy moments keeps the listener on the edge throughout the song's entirety. The epic closing instrumental section of this track is one of the best closing sections of all time in progressive music. Every time that I listen to this song I cannot help but smile because of how well written it is.

Track 1: "Wreath"

This song is perfectly placed as the opening track of this album. It is one of Opeth's heaviest and most ferocious tracks that the band has ever done. I have never heard Mikael quite sound as dark and downright scary as he does on this track. It has mostly low growls and very little when it comes to clean vocals. If Opeth needed to appeal more to the straightforward death metal crowd this is the track to do it. Musically, its still progressive in nature though and the track lasts eleven minutes. "Wreath" sets the mood perfectly for what this album is going to sound like.

My Verdict:

This may not be as "perfect" as Blackwater Park, but it contains a different sound that is focused on being heavier and darker than the band has ever been before. This album features Mikael's best low growls, the band's heaviest riffs, and some of Martin Lopez's best drum work to date. I think that if I had to point out one extremely small weakness that the album has is the short instrumental "For Absent Friends" which is wasted space that disrupts the flow of the album slightly. Other than those two minutes, this album is yet another perfect Opeth release that is one of the band's most underappreciated in their entire discography.

Diving Into the Greatest Artist of Our Generation — Frank Ocean
420
views

Until the day of Blonde’s, it seemed as if Frank Ocean didn’t actually exist. As days became weeks and turned into long-awaited years, the anticipation for his album was over.

For the last part of 2016, everyone was drowned in the beauty of Frank Ocean’s 60 minutes released of Blonde. A product of a man who took his time to release an album jam-packed with nothing but his raw emotion and passionate yet musical talent for the art of music. A boundary-pushing music album where he left no room for error and combined his natural vocals with sophisticated lyrical contemplations.

The creation of Blonde is an album that still sounds brand new a full 365 days after its release, a rare accomplished which Frank Ocean was able to effortlessly achieved. Through his ideas, events, references to other music, and personal stories, the album captures and reveals parts of Frank Ocean’s life and his extraordinary process of songwriting.

There is a cinematic quality to that draws you in. The lyric storytelling and atmosphere it paints it nothing ever heard of before. Even without the usage of a visual aid, the album itself still is able to create its own vivid imagery. The images of childhood, lost summers, and cars.

While cars have been represented by men as status, wealthy, and especially masculinity, Frank Ocean instead uses them to articulate a sense of vulnerability and intimacy. His usage of cars is a framing device used to dive into moments of where you are driving alone. The album becomes private, self-reflecting, and personal.

As the world thinks of Frank Ocean as an enigmatic figure, almost hidden from the world because his lack of social media presence in our fame-obsessed culture, this is what defines his works from most other artists. His personal depth and restraint take you on a journey through his mind keeping you as close as to the passenger seat where you ride into his heartfelt album.
