RECENT PRESS

The track, Ice Machine recently received an excellent write up via Death Or Desire.

Introducing Swamp Music Players with “Ice Machine”. With its moody, sad ambiance, the song joins the ranks of similar artists like Chromatics, Kandle, Electric Youth, and College.

What sets “Ice Machine” apart is its unique blend of synthwave and jazz we think personally, highlighted by a subtle soft snare percussion. Written by Hollywood’s Sugar Parks, the track spins a haunting tale set at the infamous Tiki Motel in California—most notably known as the seedy location in the 1980s film ‘The Terminator.’ The narrative is a pretty gripping one too, following a woman who takes the life of her spouse’s lover. As she grapples with her actions and thoughts, she becomes increasingly aware that the police are closing in on her. The music captures this tension and internal turmoil masterfully, turning “Ice Machine” into a mini-noir film for the ears. This emotionally charged single paired with the compelling musical backdrop makes “Ice Machine” more than just a track, but an experience.

A visualizer music video, created by Steve Greene debuts at 2:45pm EST on Halloween. Tune in and share the music.

Emerging from the ranks of bands such as Battlecross, Cursed Eternity, and As They Sleep, the 2015-founded heavy metal group Finality delivers a solid debut album, “Technocracy.” Striking a well-crafted balance between classic and contemporary elements, the band showcases a rich instrumental backdrop with skillfully executed riffs and supersonic leads. The modern heavy metal sound is embodied in the album’s controlled aggression, without relying too heavily on nostalgic connections.

The dynamic vocals adeptly adjust to the changing pace of the music, whether it’s fast and aggressive or slower and melodious, resulting in a highly commendable and engaging musical experience. “Technocracy” marks a promising start for Finality, as they carve out their own path in the heavy metal landscape.

Steve Greene track, Unbeknownst, for John Bergin’s Feels Like Rain book of short stories

john-bergin-feels-like-rain

Feels Like Rain

Steve Greene‘s track, Unbeknownst (The Wayward School) was composed for the companion album for author John Bergin‘s book of short stories entitled, Feels Like Rain.

John Bergin deftly weaves sixteen tales spanning a range of genres and topics—from the horrific and apocalyptic to the mundane, murderous, and supernatural. These are stories about guilt, anger, unknown pleasures, and death.

In Raised by Rats, a chance encounter with a superhero alters the course of a young man’s life. In Corpse Gun, a guide leads his charges across a surreal wasteland to a destination deadlier than the journey undertaken to reach it. In The Mountaineer, a determined man undertakes the Sisyphean task of delivering an extraordinary gift to a remote location. In The Bullet Collector, a teacher flees from America’s gun worship and discovers there is no escape. In The Crying Giant, a fairy tale ending eludes a gentle giant. In The House Of Frankenstein, the Frankenstein monster is alive and well, working his strangest case yet as a private investigator in New York City. In Lost in the Cold Hard Vacuum of Outer Space, a rebellious space pilot happens upon a lost astronaut who teaches her how to cool her jets.

These stories revolt, arouse, terrify, and delight—reveling in the imperfections of being human.

Unbeknownst (The Wayward School) was recorded and mixed here, at the Battler Chamber by Steve Greene. Listen to the track via Spotify or Apple Music.

You can get your own copy of the book by visiting John Bergin’s BandCamp page.

Steve Greene is owner of the Battle Chamber studio as well as a musician, film composer and 1/3 of the band Voyag3r. Check out music and mix examples on the Sounds Page.

STORYLINE: Jack (Roddy Piper) is a building superintendent, Jack is a simple man with simple needs. He just wants to be left in peace so that he can get on with reading his book. But the tenants living in his building are always in need of him for something. Fix this, replace that, unblock this toilet. However, when the power goes out in the building the culprit is not a blown fuse or faulty wiring it is two of the tenants who have opened a portal to hell in the basement of the building. If Jack doesn’t close the portal and stop Great Cthulhu rising from his watery tomb city then the entire building, no, the entire world will go down the pan. – Mark A Wood

Check out this blurb from Film Threat magazine:The fascinating part of Future is that it’s not necessarily about Doug being sent to kill a future bad guy, though that is a part of the story. It’s more about the relationship between Doug and the Time Traveler. Doug is the guy who has wasted his life to this point. The Time Traveler, on the other hand, has schemed his way with many other saps, like Doug, and gets off on being there for the final days of someone’s life. He promotes falling into hedonistic desires and goes along with it. It’s this conflicting relationship that makes the story of Future so clever and different. This genre is in desperate need of both of those elements.”

About the Film New York Ninja

Originally directed by and starring martial arts actor John Liu (The Secret Rivals, Invincible Armor) in his only American production, New York Ninja was filmed entirely on 35mm in 1984, but the project was abandoned during production resulting in all original sound materials being lost over time. 35 years later, Vinegar Syndrome acquired the original unedited camera negative and painstakingly constructed and completed the film. Enlisting the voice talents of genre favorites: Don “The Dragon” Wilson (Bloodfist, Whatever It Takes), Linnea Quigley (Return of the Living Dead, Nightmare Sisters), Michael Berryman (The Hills Have Eyes, Auntie Lee’s Meat Pies), Vince Murdocco (Night Hunter, LA Wars), Matt Mitler (The Mutilator, Battle for the Lost Planet), Leon Isaac Kennedy (Lone Wolf McQuade, Penitentiary), Ginger Lynn Allen (The Devil’s Rejects, Vice Academy), and Cynthia Rothrock (China O’Brien, Martial Law) Vinegar Syndrome Pictures is extremely proud to present this truly one of kind film experience. Restored in 4K from the original camera elements, New York Ninja is finally available in all of its ridiculous over-the-top glory for the first time ever after spending nearly four decades in film obscurity.

Directed by: John Liu and Kurtis Spieler
2021 / 93 min / 1.85:1 / English 2.0 Stereo
