My new heavy metal horror novel An Augmented Fourth comes out this June.
To mark the occasion I'm going to bring you '"Found Metal" on Fridays.
Found Metal is pop culture stuff I’ve dredged up from the corners of my mind and mother internet that aren’t explicitly heavy metal in and of themselves but nevertheless they still possess that unnamable thing that makes something metal. Some things just have that connotation with them and it’s hard to say exactly why. Metal is one of those things that’s impossible to define exactly but you know it when you see it.
Today's found metal comes from Baroque artist Nicolas Poussin and his depiction of the New Testament's "Massacre of the Innocents" where King Herod pulled a Skynet and tried to John Conner ol' Jesus (T2 style, he lacked a time machine) but only managed to kill a shit ton of non messiah, all human, no powers poor babies instead.
Read about more awesome fucked up shit in your Bible today!
Back to business:
Get out your metal detectors!
If you got something you think is unintentionally brutal or accidentally scary send that found metal to me via an email and if I use it I'll send you some sort of prize. Hit me up at: firstname.lastname@example.org
