HOW TO KILL ON HALLOWEEN: The ’93 Murder Of River Phoenix





HOW TO KILL ON HALLOWEEN: The ’93 Murder Of River Phoenix

(part 1 of a 3 part report)

Actor/rocker Johnny Depp is currently a guitarist in THE HOLLYWOOD VAMPIRES. At one time during the early nineties, Depp was co-owner of The Viper Room nightclub where allegedly two mysterious deaths are connected to. The first being late actor River Phoenix… and the second being Depp’s estranged partner in the club who simply vanished into thin air.

Actress Samantha Mathis, who was River’s girlfriend at the time of his death, was part of a recent propaganda piece fed to the public that I believe begins to help us connect the dots in what looks to be a very complex premeditated murder scenario.

It is my belief that the actress lured Phoenix to his death at the Viper Room, where...

HIGH ON FIRE will no longer participate in the 2018 “Speed of the Wizard Tour,” which they were to co-headline with Municipal Waste, due a “medical emergency” involving frontman Matt Pike. The band has provided the following statement:

SOILWORK – Debut New Music Video





SOILWORK has unleashed another new track from their forthcoming album, Verklighteten, which is due out on January 11 through Nuclear Blast. The official music video for new single “Full Moon Shoals” can be viewed HERE.

SOILWORK is a band that has been through a lot. We don’t have to try and tidy things up by using clichés like personal and/or musical differences. It has been hell. We have lost loved ones and significant others have fallen ill. We are not young anymore, and our reality these days is the hellhounds on our tails, the ghosts in our subconscious and the coldness of existence that starts eating at your soul the very day that you leave the womb. We can no longer escape the fact that we’re vulnerable to the shortcomings of life itself.

Verkligheten is the Swedish word f...
