Autopsy (1975) + Horror-Themed Music Videos – It’s the last airing of the investigative gorefest b-horror known as Autopsy! Originally titled Macchie Solari (translating to “sunspots” in Italian) and also known as The Victim and Corpse, Autopsy is a 1975 Italian giallo-horror film directed by Armando Crispino. It achieved cult status for its truculent morgue scenes. IMDB synopsis: “A young pathology doctor interning in a morgue tries to cope with a wave of suicides. A woman she just met kills herself, but she suspects someone close to her might have killed her.” Grab your popcorn and join everyone in the Live Chat getting scared and laughing while following the young doctor’s hunt for clues surrounding those suicides that may not be what they seem! Enjoy some gore-laced, horror-themed music videos from GIMME‘s label partners as well!
Vulture Industries Live At Vestindien – GIMME METAL TV will not rest on bringing the concert experience to your home screen! Season Of Mist offers up this stellar performance from premier avant-garde / progressive metal unit Vulture Industries. Said frontman Bjørnar E. Nilsen upon its initial unveiling, “For no other reason than the anguishing prospect of being bored to death by the dull reality of Covid-19 and a deep philanthropic urge to keep you all amused, we give you Vulture Industries live from the historic location Vestindien. Now a museum, this was once Bergen’s own ‘House Of The Rising Sun.’ This evening we dub it ‘House Of The Irregular’ and invite you all to join us by the docks for an hour of musical rarities, new and old.” This performance rings the sound of 5150 and Mesa Boogie amps throughout a beautifully rustic jam space. Join the Live Chat for this captivating, house-shaking performance!
