Lucy (2014) - Review



Take drugs and become God. Someone should have told Scarlett Johansson there’s an easier way to become a telekinetic, omnipotent, space-time controlling atomic supercomputer than having a bag full of an experimental drug rupture in your stomach and flood your system with insane OD levels of a newly synthesised super-potent nootropic compound.

The Wraith (1986) - Review



Charlie Sheen stars in this shameless piece of Oscar bait from the magical eighties as a murder victim who gets reincarnated as an alien slash magical car and returns to his Arizona hometown to exact vengeance on the gang of street racers who killed him.

Tusk (2014) - Review

NIGHTBRINGER - Ego Dominus Tuus Review + Full Stream

Few moments in the pursuit of audio ecstasy result in one’s jaw dropping open within the first few minutes of an opening song. Nightbringer’s Ego Dominus Tuus sends a chill down my spine, as “Et Nox Illumination Mea in Deliciis” first titillates the eardrums with twin guitar har…

Interviews Mike IX of EYEHATEGOD

CVLT Nation got the chance to chop it up with one our favorite people in the underground, Mike IX of EYEHATEGOD, and this is what he had to say! Why self-title this album? In the beginning, we had page after page of titles, probably 100 or so different names for the record. Everybody had their…
