The Merkins are a musical band dedicated to the horror of all occasions! The holidays rarely rhyme with horror or slasher flicks. But The Merkins somehow make it work.
The Holiday Cheers All Around
That’s right, Biters. I meant to have this article out for October, but I missed that deadline. But that’s okay because, as goths, we let our Halloween spirit run all year long, including the Winter Solstice / Yule / Christmas.
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.

I’m an extremely boring person, most of the time. On the rare occasions that I am doing something extraordinary, I can be found travelling around haunted Indiana, exploring the many paranormal hotspots the Hoosier state has to offer.

I’m a horror movie enthusiast as well as a big fan of survival horror video games. I enjoy special effects makeup and telling dark and compelling stories. It makes people find beauty in the world of the macabre.
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?
After a week of phobia now, Biters, we’re going into music! So, as a YouTube addict, let me present you, my musician.
Fear To Cheer
Seems we get to go from fears to cheers this week Biters, it’s a GBM music week. I’ve always thought there is no such thing as a bad song. It’s just the wrong artist or the wrong genre.
That being said, Biters and GBM writers alike may have noticed I love hard rock. I love cover bands. So this week hailing from Norway, uploading his first video way back in 2006. But not going viral until 2013, he now sits at 3.89 million subscribers, 813 videos, and 963,507,565 views.

IN THE BEGINNING
Welcome back readers and sorry for the pause. With all the chaos going on in our world, let me say that I hope that the one reading this is safe and that all in their life is peaceful as it can be in this time.
I was going to do another Goosebumps or Animorphs run on an article but The Haunting of Hill House was one that I had just finished and since that wholly fits in with Gothic Bite Magazine, that is the one I shall give you for food of thought.
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.
Gothic Bite Magazine is always proud to share the work from the Indie Community! From all fields, including musical, which we can all agree, is a crucial role in our gothic lives! Today, here is the work of Daisy Mortem!

A Moment of Passing
A while back, Alyssa Monks shared moving insights in her TEDx Talk on art. She talked about how she tried another painting style set in nature, to rekindle her flame after her mother’s passing.
gave me pause to reflect on creative writing as another act of art that
penetrates the unknown. Specifically, it conveys the importance of allowing
life to freely grace itself into the work. Letting nature’s truths on creation
and death, on love and loss, reveal themselves in a more pure, unvarnished way.
