It is not the first time that our pop culture expert, James or our favourite Skeleton Hiding In Our Closet do reviews about classic remakes, so, without further due, here’s a new one!
It’s Good To Be Back!
I have something a little different for you. Both friends, family and even coworkers have encouraged me to share about my autism. With that, I have not one but four YouTube cover artists for the price of one.
Those who are regulars over at GBM know that James Vaughan is our pop culture guy and music reviewer for covers. He is almost a YouTube promoter at this point! But this one…well, come in to read for yourself!

Biters, I have another song lined up, and you’ll be surprised! It’s an original song and not a cover. With that said, I hope you feel limber because I’ll be reaching and stretching for this musical number.
Oh! Spoiler! Warning for how the stinger of how the song ends. Since it is why I wanted to share it with you all.
Gothic Bite Magazine reviews many different subjects and one of them is left to our pop culture specialist, James Vaughan. He loves his indie bands and his favourites are those who do covers of hits in a more rock and metal way!
It’s Been A While
A while back, in my Wolf Totem article, I did a mini review on somebody I’ve been wanting to talk about for ages Pamela Romvel and David Galardi, better known as The Covers Duo.
So, Biters, let’s move these two from the Gothic Bite Magazine opening act to the GBM headliners and take a closer look at The Covers Duo.
This week, I was asked to review some new music by a new band, Somberwind. March of 2021 saw them release the video for their latest track from their album Remain, released through Sleazy Rider Records in April 2021.
The Spell song was released on the primary music streaming services and online stores in April. And what did I think of it?
Gothic Bite Magazine loves to give a platform to every type of artist, and that includes musicians. Our reviewers cannot wait to hear what the Gothic world has to sing about, and Mary listened well!
Reaching Out To GBM
Pantanosumpf reached out to Gothic Bite Magazine, introducing themselves as first a supporter of artists in many forms. They are a mixture of artists in Argentina and other parts of the world.
They celebrate and promote all forms of artistic talent and really have created a movement, more like a community, of talented artists. They also have created a record label highlighting local artists.
The movie Queen of the Damned is perhaps one of the best vampire movies ever, and it has a soundtrack to match.
A Queen To Follow
In case you didn’t know, the movie follows Akasha‘s journey, which is a vampire queen. And she was in slumber for millions of years until Lestat’s music woke her up and she wanted him to be her new vampire king.
So she kills her current vampire king and sets off on a journey to find Lestat. Sounds sexy, right? What’s better than vampires?
My band, I’m listening to for inspiration, and finding my sleep is Ghost. Who are they? Hmmm, that is a good question I’m happy to answer.
The Scandinavian musical band Ghost originates from Sweden in the town of Linköping. In the United States, some knew them as Ghost B.C. Some say they are rock, but when you listen to their music to me, they fall under Gothic Rock.
That, to me, is due to the orchestration that is quite prominent in their unique sound. Music haunted by a Ghost from Sweden and I’m all over it!
Everyone has a favorite song, or band. One that they go to whether to amp up for their day, to relax from that day, or to just sing along with all your heart.
Everyone you ask would give you music that touched them or that resonated with them on some level. One of the fun things about music is that it is so diverse and interacts with each person differently.
One answer would differ from another and could be on polar opposites of the sound spectrum, and this just adds to the narrative.
Last time Jonathan Young was a musician James Vaughan did a review about and now he presents us with a wonderful and unique musical band named, Voice Play!
A Unique Acapella Group
Seasons Greetings Biters and Happy Holidays.
For this December, I’d share with you an A Capella group called, VoicePlay. I’ve wanted to write about these guys as far back as the Phantom of the Opera month. But I was not all that confident in my writing ability.
Now that I’ve got a few articles under my belt and sharpened my teeth a bit, let me introduce you to VoicePlay.
Something is looming on the horizon and that is a beautiful and haunting melody. Made up of the duo of Andrea Kerr and Jared Hawkes, L.E.D is releasing their first EP on May 1st, 2019. They gave us here at Gothic Bite Magazine some inside information and a sneak peek at some of their upcoming tracks.
