CityWide Blackout

It’s a creepy and spine-tingling show, just the way we like it! Author Rob Smales is on deck first, with a new book, “Echoes of Darkness.” Though definitely a horror-themed tale, this collection of short stories stems from the darkness inside each of us, and what we’d do if it ever got out.

Adrian Eberth of the metal band Achilles talks about the band’s new album, “Dirge For the Earth.” This took three years of hard work, lineup changes, blood, sweat, and beers, and the results speak for themselves. You’ll hear plenty of the songs off the album, as well as the stories behind the songs.

Matt Fuller of Dronehead Odyssey comes on next to talk about his new album, “Bang Bang Fortuna.” This one takes a different track than his first album, incorporating some singer-songwriting elements and blending them with his unique electronic style.

Chris Philbrook, author of horror and fantasy titles, shares his plans for the zombie uprising and the genesis of his books, “Adrian’s Undead Diary,” “Lesser: A Dragon Among Us,” and “Elmoryn.” All take place in deep, detailed worlds, some familiar and some completely unique to Chris’ imagination.

BONUS: Singer/actor Mane De La Parre was among the many talented performers at the recent Outside the Box festival. In this interview, he tells us what it was like going to Berklee College of Music, his foray into acting, and the unique ways that music can connect with an audience.
