HundredMillionThousand Debut Album


Alright people, I’m irked. HundredMillionThousand only has 62 followers on Soundcloud as of publishing this. This artist is criminally underrated. HundredMillionThousand, HMT for short, dropped a fire track titled “Yalda” from his suspenseful debut album called lp1. Produced in what sounds to have been a clean environment with the best noise-free preamps money could afford, “Yalda” outperforms hundreds of traditionally…

The Psyatics Keep It Pretty & Grim In Famous Monsters


“Punk’s not dead” should be the slogan for The Psyatics and their third and latest full length album release, Famous Monsters. Part punk, part surf, part garage, and part shifty blues carefully blended with temporarily inharmonious strings sum up a track listing that take listeners on an ever-crashing wave of nervousness in Famous Monsters.

Check Out Facial Animations From Injustice 2


ORIGINAL STORY May 15th, 2016 (12:02PM EST): Let me preface by saying, I was a huge fan of “Injustice: Gods Among Us.” It was one of my favorite fighting games I’ve played in years. My relationship with the game was strong. I owned a copy, bought a second one for the statue (which sadly broke), played the “remastered version” well before…
