Van Halst have released their first studio album, World of Make Believe. Fronted by Kami Van Halst, her eclectic vocals, along with honest and direct lyrics gives the album a sentimental and intimate vibe. Musically, the diverse styling designs a unique tone and helps accentuate the socially-aware messages in each track. The record has grabbed a lot of attention since its release in early March of 2016 and is a great example of a metal group who wants to influence change through music.
With the release of their first studio album, Van Halst will be celebrating by holding their CD release party in Edmonton, AB at Filthy McNasty’s on Saturday April 2nd, 2015 . Accompanying them will be, The Order of Chaos and Monarch Sky. This is be one you won’t want to miss.
I’ve been sick of superhero movies for a while now, hype or no hype. There’s just been so many. I remember this happened with vampire movies and also zombie movies – not long after they get popular there’s a giant glut of the things. Then someone comes along to reinvent it and gets blamed for the whole thing tanking. The genre is ripe; I bet the Stephanie Meyers of superhero movies is busy making a genre-killer as we speak. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is probably not said genre-killer, but it is definitely a warning sign that one is coming.

While looking at the top 25 titles in sales from October 2015 only three DC titles were large enough to crack the ranks. Other than Paper Girls from Image Comics, Marvel had the remaining 21 spots. Other publishers must find Marvel hard to compete with, especially when eleven of those Marvel books were #1 issues. If readers wonder why publishers are constantly “rebooting” or “relaunching” or “all-new-ing” then one could conclude it’s because #1 issues sell better then most, and this is definitely a valid reason to create more #1 issues from a sales perspective. Which leads me to DC Comics “REBIRTH” – beginning in late May all the DC titles will be dialed back to #1 (other than Detective and Action Comics, which will be dialed forward to #934 and #957 respectively, in a completely different marketing strategy). Co-publishers Dan DiDio and Jim Lee, along with Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns claim this not a reboot, stating that Rebirth will aim to take “the best of DC’s past, embrace the stories we currently love and move the entire epic universe into the future”. Unfortunately this sounds worse than a reboot, mashing together bits and pieces of the past into current character stories will presumably end in a bunch of confused readers.
