On this episode, we speak with Professor Pizza, vocalist for thrash metal band Axeslasher, about the group’s inclusion in the heavy metal horror films Deathgasm and Pool Party Massacre.
Deathgasm is the amazing 2015 splatstick film from New Zealand, and if you haven’t seen it by this point, please stop reading and come back in an hour and a half. It’s metal as hell, funny, and so very, very bloody. There’s also some surprisingly-deep lessons to be learned about not judging appearances, as well as interpersonal relationships. Plus, bludgeoning with a dildo. The soundtrack is positively killer (pun intended), and features Axeslasher in addition to Midnight, Nunslaughter, and Bullet Belt. You can snag it on double vinyl LP from Death Waltz.
Pool Party Massacre was just released on DVD and Blu-ray, and the low-budget slasher is a hilariously gory romp which sees a bevy of bikini-clad young ladies attacked with an entire garage’s worth of power tools and yard equipment. The Drew Marvick-directed flick was put together on a budget of something like $6000, and it makes the most of every penny. We’ve been sharing the joys of it since we first saw it last month, and if you loved Deathgasm, you will be super-thrilled with Pool Party Massacre.
