Al Jourgensen doesn’t need much to ignite his inner fire when it comes to music.

German seems to be the flavour of the month for my reviews lately, and here we have another German act by the name of Lord of the Lost with their double album Judas. Now, I’d go into some of the info from their press release, but it’s littered with some weird German words that I just don’t understand. The one bit I did understand is something thatsounded German, but is actually just two English words put together, and that was “genrefluid”.

Here we have a ten-track instrumental album from a two-piece band, and to be honest I’d usually tap out at one instrumental per album. Don’t get me wrong, I love a good Instrumental, but ten of them in a row just seems like way too much hard work for not much of a payoff.
But here we go anyway. Fermentor, show me what you’ve got.

The original Suicide Squad movie may have ben much maligned, although the Director’s Cut version certainly didn’t deserve to be, but it did show the world that DC did know how to mix their darkness with some good times and surprising humour. But like Green Lantern before it it did split DC movie fans over whether it was a good or bad film, so much so that I doubt many people would have ever expected that there would be a follow film.

Megan Fox has always been an actress that has been harshly judged by Hollywood. To her critics she was always considered as one of those actresses that got her start with the Transformers franchise because of her looks. What those critics haven’t noticed is how Fox has evolved since those films.
