battle angel alita, film, fox, live action, manga, movie -

Yesterday I stumbled upon an interesting film trailer for a film titled Alita: Battle Angel. On First glance I thought it must just be a mistake, but then as I watched it I realise there was no mistake here Hollywood have indeed embarked upon taking another Manga classic (actually titled "Battle Angel Alita) and turning it into a live action film. I'm going to reserve judgement until July next year when its officially released in the cinema but I will say this, the trailer has definitely piqued my interest. have a look and see what you think.

When I hit the play button on "Aggressive" by Beartooth I was seriously impressed. It was the perfect mix of punk rock and metal.

Devil you know is one of those bands where each member is now or has recently finished playing in another band. A term usually used for a band like this is "super group."   The band initially formed in 2012 when drummer John Sankey of Devolved and Franceso Artusato from All Shall Perish started jamming together. In the later part of 2012 they recruited former Killswitch Engage frontman Howard Jones to undertake vocal duties. Since then they have done countless tours and have released two albums. The most recent of which is what caught my attention, and completely by accident....
