Gothic Queen Classic Remake Review

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!

Alright, Biters,

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.

Biters meet Violet Orlandi, Addie Nicole of Halocene, Audra Miller of First to Eleven, and the GBM return of Lauren Babic. These four ladies are frequent collaborators. So, it’s kind of hard to talk about one without bringing up the others.

A Duo Covers Like No Other

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.

“Your Nightmare” by Vampyrëan featuring Chris Pohl Review

I enjoy checking out new music blind to me. Vampyrëan was one I had not heard before.

A Solo Project

Vampyrëan is the solo project from Vlad Janicek, a former member of Nosferatu. That right away got my attention.

I am familiar with Nosferatu and really enjoy their gothic rock-infused music. I then saw that Chris Pohl from Blutengel is featured on the track. That made me even more excited to listen.

The Hu

Move Over Pete Townshend There Is A New Who In Town!

Come read about the foreign group that is inspiring our YouTube Addict, James Vaughan! Come over and discover music you might not have heard of before!

Mongolian Wolves

Biters, I think it’s obvious at this point I’m a bit of a hard rock, metal fan. So, I’d like to tackle the Mongolian throat singing metal band The Hu.

The Hu was introduced to me a few months back by one of my gaming friends. It happened through what must be their most well-known song and the center piece of this article, Wolf Totem.

C.R.’s Rants and Reviews

Gothic Bite Magazine had the pleasure to work with Chris Taylor on an article. He reviewed the band Somberwind and their new release, which happened back in April 2021.

Give A Warm Welcome

Hello, and welcome to my corner of Gothic Bite Magazine.

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?

Testiculo Mutilaciones a Pantansosumpf Review by Mary Dean Kazen

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.

Ten Second Songs Now Anthony Vincent

The BooTube Expert, James Vaughan, is back with a new artist he wants to showcase. It is worth it!

Enough Rest

Alright, Biters GBM is back after a little needed R&R. Before all of us writers jump back into writing, I thought I’d warm back up by showcasing another of my favorite musical YouTubers. 

Today I’m putting the GBM spotlight on Anthony Vincent and his channel Ten Second Songs.

Megadeth

Music Week Goes Mega Metal with Megadeth

We often rock is dead and sometimes we might believe it. But, the rock we know is passed down generations! Dora is here to remind us of Megadeth!

80s Heavy Metal

Back in the 80s, we had a surge of new music invading the pop charts, you had bands like Eurythmics, Duran Duran, Madonna, Poison, Bon Jovi, etc. 

These were friendly listening bands to play on the radio and MTV, but there was a piece of underground music rearing its teeth with screaming guitars, social lyrics, and blasting drums.

Queen of the Damned

Music Week Bows To The Queen…of the Damned

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?

Music Haunted By A Ghost From Sweden

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.

Ghostly Yours

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!

The Kronos Quartet

Music Week and The Kronos Quartet

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.

Traveling Music

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.

The year is 1986. The scene is inside of Her Majesty’s Theatre, as the lights start to dim anticipation builds.

The orchestra has started their warm up notes and there is a hint of small murmurs throughout the crowd as they move restlessly ready for the show to start.  It’s The Phantom of the Opera on Broadway.
