The winners of the Great Troubles

In November, Russia celebrated the holiday — Day of National Unity. 400 years ago, October 22 (November 1), 1612, soldiers militia led by Kuzma Minin and a citizen of Prince Dmitry Pozharsky stormed China Town, captured by the invaders. October 27 Polish garrison surrendered, and that moment was a turning point in the history of the Time of Troubles — a period when Russia was simply not in a protracted decline, and in fact, on the verge of losing its statehood and could disappear from the maps as a single power.

Evil Dead 4: Hail to the King

Зловещие, мертвые и довольные этим!

СЭМ РЕЙМИ (SAM RAIMI) ПРОСЛАВИЛСЯ не черным фильмом “Человек тьмы”, не черным вестерном “Быстрый и мертвый” и даже не черным триллером “Простой план”. Его имя стало известно в конце восьмидесятых, с выходом “Армии тьмы” — последнего из тройки сверхлегкомысленных, примитивных, кровавых, но в чем-то привлекательных ужастиков о Некрономиконе и зловещих мертвецах с Брюсом Кэмпбеллом

(Bruce Campbell) в главной роли. Черных, с темно-красным юмором, аморальным и брутальным до предела и после него. После того как Рейми пошел на повышение, он забросил свою трилогию и даже не помышлял о четвертой истории про зловещих мертвецов и Эше, человеке

Crash of the titans.

“На сегодняшний день я действительно работаю в обеих группах, причем по полной программе,» — пытается разъяснить обстановку сам Кинг Даймонд. “Да, действительно, восстановление Mercyful Fate вначале было лишь проектом и не более того. Но дела пошли столь хорошо, что мы решили продолжать. Тем более что дела с моей группой тогда шли не очень: мы занимались лишь судебными разборками с нашей фирмой. Сейчас, собственно, у меня нет никаких проблем с работой в двух проектах.»

Оно и видно! Альбом и турне Mercyful Fate, затем сразу диск King Diamond, подготовка к новым гастролям… Хотя направления у обоих команд явно различные, Кинг без особых

10 Murderous Kings

A blood-curdling countdown of history’s deadliest monarch’s

In .this day and age it’s quite difficult to imagine the sheer power that kings and queens once wielded over their subjects. In many ways these monarch’s were more similar to modern dictators than the regents that we know today. Murder was often a means to a political end, while crimes of passion would rarely be met with any immediate consequences.

Although the kings had ultimate power, it was a power they were forced to fight for — often using fear, war and murder, among other methods, to stay at the top. The
