It was customary to bury them differently than people. Back in the day, when populations believed in witches, werewolves and vampires, one was never safe from gossip or vampires.
Vampires In All History

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.

Ah…The Good Ole Burning Times!
The silvery light of the full moon shines down on a circle of nude people, dancing hand-in-hand around a bonfire. From the flames comes a being with the head of a horned goat on a man’s body, where its feet should be are hooves…
This is a typical scene when you look into the history of the Witch Hunts of Europe or if you’re part of the Neopagan movement, The Burning Times.

Fear The Children
A child at your door or car window with a friend or two. Asking to come inside, to make a phone call, or for a ride. It seems innocuous, but your gut screams at you.
Shrouded in shadow, something seems ‘off’ about the children. Chills race along your spine, the hair on your neck and arms stands straight up. You crack the door or roll down the window slightly…

Heard the barest of laughs and an ethereal voice from the fog, a siren’s lure you cannot erase from your mind. Are you going mad or being ensnared in a spell as old as time? Was that a beckoning hand, summoning you into the deep?

A Primal Fear
Move to the suburbs, they said. It’ll be safer, they said. Until you’re running through the maze of carbon-copy streets, heart-pounding, breathing frantic. The pup in your arms is getting so heavy, but you’re terrified to put it down. All you wanted was to take the pup for a quick potty break before bed. The quiet, tree-lined street was a haven, a refuge from city life.

Familiar is a word that starts gaining popularity among new comers in witchery and the paranormal. The popularization of the word comes from pop culture but it has a quite ancient meaning.
Familiars, What Are They?
You may have heard of the term “familiar spirits” in paranormal shows like The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina or Supernatural, but this word is also mentioned nine times in The Bible. The first mention of this phrase is found in Leviticus 19:31:

Round One Fight
After watching The Suicide Squad for the sixth time on HBO Max and Marvel Comics‘ What If…? on Disney+, I was pleasantly surprised to see two old-school comic characters. Starro the Conqueror and Shuma-Gorath.

We all have heard of stalkers, but how far back can we go? This time we are in the Victorian Era under a matriarch ruling of a famous queen.
The Badass English Queen
I’m sure everyone knows who Queen Victoria was. I mean, it isn’t called the Victorian Era for nothing. She was a badass who used herself as bait to catch an assassin, drank cocaine-wine, and practically invented the sext.
So, one could she deserved a nemesis with the same larger-than-life stature. Edward Jones went above and beyond typical stalker levels, not just following her around and watching her from the shadows. No, he literally lived inside the walls of Buckingham Palace!
