Sincere thanks for entering the Crypt...we want this to be your final "resting place" for SEX. HORROR. ROCK N' ROLL. However, it appears that some of our visitors (who are most likely foolish mortals) find that the names of our sections are perhaps a bit arcane and esoteric. Confusing, even.

*ATTENTION* Boils and ghouls, it chills the formaldehyde running through my veins to announce that our exclusive coverage of the first annual 'Fuse Fangoria Chainsaw Awards' in Los Angeles, CA has now been published in our Features section!
To say that this is quite an achievement for this goddamn magazine is an understatement. With such a-list horror genre celebrities and dark rock stars as Rob Zombie, Sheri Moon Zombie, Bill Moseley ('House of 1000 Corpses,' and 'The Devil's Rejects,') Playmate Brande Roderick, Robert "Freddy Kreuger" Englund, Slipknot, Lacey Nocturne of Nocturne, Seamus Davey-Fitzpatrick (The Omen,) plus more in attendance, this is the big time x 999.

As well as a full 11 unholy days before the greatest holiday of all time...HALLOWEEN! Trick or treat? Well, in a rare act of kindness, we've given you a treat (rather than a trick)this Halloween.

So enjoy, and remember to tell your fellow fiends, if they believe the story you'll tell!
The Fuse Fangoria Chainsaw Awards will premiere Sunday, October 22 on Fuse, with a half-hour black carpet Dead on Arrival pre-show at 9:30 PM (EST,) followed by the two-hour long awards show at 10 PM (EST.)
*ATTENTION* Boils and ghouls, we've hit the big time once again!
I am very pleased to announce that my review of the legendary Guns N' Roses' performance on September 17th, 2006 at 'The Joint' has been published at the official Hard Rock Hotel and Casinowebsite.
Thanks a million to the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, NV for the fuckin' opportunity. It is clear that they appreciate the efforts of the undead, and it just goes to show you that not all mortals are foolish. Or one of the Cryptgirls may have drugged their drinks again. Who knows, and who the fuck cares? The results are what matters...
Introducing the Official Crypt Magazine Bulletin Board! Now, you the readers can finally chat with us directly via our morbid online forum. You also may find out the latest happenings in this flickering gloom. Feel free to share your thoughts about this magazine, music, and whatever else is on your sick and twisted little minds. We're waiting for you...
On the night of October 9th, 2006 in New York City, our ownReverend Charles (of 'Ask The Reverend' and leader of blackwave pioneers Dark Eden,) did an exclusive encore performance with New York industrial rock legends, Hanzel und Gretyl!
In the words of the Rev himself; "During their encore, they (Hanzel und Gretyl) did one of their older songs. Then they said they were going to have someone else sing for the next song. At that point, Loopy (vocals, lead guitar, programming) pointed to me and said, "Reverend Charles of Dark Eden, get on up here!"
Congratulations to Reverend Charles on this very ghoul and remarkable achievement! See, boils and ghouls, when you work around here, you go places. Please make a note of it.

*ATTENTION* Boils and Ghouls, the moment all of you have been waiting for! We have brand(bloody spankin') new content (plus some soon to be classicks) here in the Crypt!
In our Features section, we have an exclusive article about '666 A Tribute To Evil.' For those that don't know, it was a most malevolent event that took place in Hollywood, CA on 6-6-06. The main attraction for this event was the unholy matrimony of the grandson of Church of Satan founder Anton LaVey, Stanton LaVey, and his fiendish bride, our very own Cryptgirl Szandora. It also featured exclusive performances by Glenn Danzig, 45 Grave, Hank III,Cryptgirl/Promo Bitch Ugly Shyla, and more. History was made as Glenn Danzig and Dinah Cancer (of 45 Grave) have not shared a stage in almost 25 years! Plus, Mr. Danzig performed tunes that he hasn't done in many moons. Very ghoul, indeed...
6 new Cryptgirls!!! We welcome Natasha deViant, Hecate, Sinaka, Jean Unspeakable, Lexa Vonn, and Meagan Filth into our inner sanctum of lust and darkness.
Re-embalmed Cryptgirls with new pics and/or bios! The lucky ghouls are: Maitri, Mithre, Kim, Laura Dark, and last but certainly not least, our very own Promo Bitch, JEZAHELL!!!

Also, in our Features section, we have exclusive coverage of the 2006 AVN Expo, the 2006 NAMM show--a 2 part article--and the world premiere of Glenn Danzig's feature film, 'Grub Girl'!
Last but not least; in our Slabs, more Slabs, and more Live Undead sections, we have killer reviews of bands such as Motörhead, Faster Pussycat, Iron Maiden,L.A. Guns, Society 1, and Nine Inch Nails!
So, whaddya waiting for? Indulge in these wicked masterpieces of journalism! Finally, exxxtra special thanx to my ghoulish staff and contributors in making the above happen. I honestly couldn't have done it without them. They know who they are...and now you will too. If you dare...

*ATTENTION* Whew! I just got back from the 2006 AVN Expo here in Frightfully Fabulous Las Vega$! Let me tell ya, it was tons of ghoulish fun, but my slimy bones ache! My ace staff writer K.K. joined me in the coverage of this celebration of sleaze, and he'll have a killer article for all of you. Along with over 200 photos mostly taken by yours truly! (and I need a new camera battery! How come everything dies on me? *sigh*) ;)
Flyers went out to such notables as Glenn Danzig, Ron Jeremy, Taylor Wane, Tiana Lynn, Victoria Sin, and 2 goth chicks that work for Penthouse! Along with all of the other porn stars, companies, and my fellow attendees. Thanks a million to everyone for their support and interest!
Went to an AVN after-party at the Double Down Saloon. Particularly for a gig by the Lady Killers and the Tattooed Millionaires (from L.A., who were nominated for an AVN award!) They fuckin' rawked!
Partied with the Tattooed Millionaires guys (and their friends) at the Vegas Rainbow until 6 am (right before the sun came up, of course.) Thanks to Adrian Ace making that happen, as well as the comps and un-86ing my undead ass!

*ATTENTION* Boils and ghouls, we've hit the big time! My Blackest of The Black review (previously published here in these pages,) has recently been published at the official Hard Rock Hotel and Casino website. You may read the review here. This is excellent newsindeed, for not just myself and this magazine, but for you Danzig fans and those of you who are interested (and involved) in the dark side of the scene.
So, thanks a million to the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, NV for their efforts. I dunno who drugged their drinks to cause them to make this decision--I plead the 5th, it might have been 1 of the Cryptgirls--but we highly appreciate it nevertheless.
*ATTENTION* We're fiendishly preparing to cover the 2006 AVN Adult Entertainment Expo right here in Frightfully Fabulous Las Vega$. I personally evaluated the pre-show activities, and it appears that this year's AVN Expo will provide more hot and cold running chills than ever before. Also, expect coverage equal or greater than that of the 2005 AVN Expo. Stay tuned...and as an appetizer, I welcome you to feast your eyes on a delicious quartet of brand-new Adult DVD reviews (all titles are from DVSX) written by none other than 1 of the hardest working creeps here in the Crypt, K.K. You may read them here. In addition, we have a new Horror dvd review from our new Contributing Writer, Xenoglossia. Finally, stay tuned for an exclusive interview with goth/punk favs Bella Morte, which was conducted on a stormy nite (of course) by our long time Staff Writer, Rachel.
*NEW* Interview with Stanton LaVey, the grandson of the late Church of Satan founder Dr. Anton LaVey. In our 'Interview with...' section, of course. Cryptgirl Szandora(who just so happens to be Mr. LaVey's fiance) was also on hand for this exclusive and sinful interview. Which was conducted by our Contributing Writer (and infamous in her own right,) Lexa Vonn.You may read it here.
*ATTENTION* I'm sorry to report this, but my fellow Las Vegan, Brent Muscat (lead guitarist of the popular and genre-defining 80's glam/sleaze band Faster Pussycat) has developed mouth cancer. It was wise of him to catch this dreaded disease in its early stages, and he is in fact undergoing treatment at the present time.
Whether you like his music or not, send him your "get well soons," please. Brent's 1 of the nicest "rock stars" 1 have ever met, a great (and underrated) guitarist/songwriter, and he is deserving of your support. Cancer is no joke, and nothing to laugh about. So, put aside your "I'm too punk to do that" or "I'm too metal to do that" or "who cares about that cock-rocker?" and...
Myself and my ghoulish staff wish Brent a very speedy recovery and a second chance at a long and prosperous life.
*UPDATE* And a second chance he was granted...According to my sources, the final biopsy results for Mr. Muscat's lymph nodes came out negative. It will take 5 years to say he's 100 percent cured, but for now, he's clean. Very ghoul, and we hope to see Brent rocking the (cat) house real soon!
*ATTENTION* Boils and ghouls, we will be covering the next AVN Adult Entertainment Expo in January 2006. Until then, check out our little visit of the 2005 AVN Expo (in our Features section mentioned below-K.K. did the write up, The Pusher and I took the pics) right here in Frightfully Fabulous Las Vega$! The hottest, sleaziest, and most sinful porn stars and more under 1 roof. Speaking of which, we have over 200 photos of them in our photo album! Which means a lot of fuckin' tits and ass. Because our motto is SEX. HORROR. ROCK N' ROLL. ya know?
Check out our deadly 'News'and our exclusive advice column hosted by Dark Eden's Reverend Charles. Plus, our "links" page for more sex. horror. rock n' roll!and don't forget to sign the guestbook! Also, if you are brave enough, you may send us a letter for inclusion in our Epithetssection. We'd love (to death) to hear from you, and I usually respond to each letter personally. You may contact the undead (that's us) here.
Crypt Magazine makes it in the official 'Church of Satan' News!
Yes, you read that correctly. Apparently they like this magazine a lot. A great honor? You're goddamn right it is. They don't just report about every magazine out there. But they did this 1. We're real about this stuff, and we live and breathe it! Beware of imitators!
Fangs to the representatives of the 'Church of Satan' for spreading the word. Hail $atan!
It has come to my attention that this magazine has been, of all things, reviewed. Where? At blogcritics.org, which is self-described as a "sinister cabal of superior bloggers on music, books, film, popular culture, and technology-updated continuously."
Authored by (ir) regular contibutor, Chris Kent, it is a terror-ific read. We are pleased that someone took the time to honor us and it comes with my personal recommendation. So, what the fuck are you waiting for? Read this blood-chilling article at: http://www.blogcritics.org/archives/2004/06/29/210321.php
