Review: Slow Me Down is a brand new album by 3PM from Baltimore, Maryland. The band was formed in 2012 when drummer Brandon Millman and Guitarist Scott Montgomery recruited Brennan Stark as singer and bassist. It wasn't long before the trio found themselves in the studio with renowned producer Paul Leavitt who has worked with bands such as All Time Low, Senses Fail, Strike Anywhere, Such Gold and more. The result is 11 tracks of upbeat, reflective and optimistic pop punk in the realm of Yellowcard, Blink 182 and New Found Glory.

Pop Punk Radio Halloween Movie Fest 2014: #3 - Silent Hill: Revelation (2012) - Modern Category

Our third installment of Halloween Movie Fest 2014 brings us to Silent Hill: Revelation. The sequel to Silent Hill, with both films being based upon the popular video game series.

Revelation can be a good introduction to first timers who have not played the games but still want to get an idea of what the Silent Hill series is all about. The film can also still be enjoyed by those who have not seen the first one. However, I highly recommend playing just about any game in the series if you have a chance before watching this film.

Pop Punk Radio Halloween Movie Fest 2014: #1 - Cube (1997) - 90's Category

October is here and it is one of my favorite months of the year for a few reasons. Football is back, Baseball is in playoffs and the NHL season is just around the corner. Last but not least, October is the season of Halloween, and at our house we take it seriously!

This year we have decided to celebrate Halloween by compiling a list of Halloween movies based on different categories and then taking turns showing them to each other. Our categories include 80's, 90's, Modern, Vintage, Bloody/Gory, Spooky Fun, Slasher, Zombie, Vampire, Monster, Sequel, TV Shows and anything else we think of along the way.

We kicked things off a day early on Sept 30th and since it wasn't quite October yet, I wanted to start with a solid horror/suspense movie that doesn't fit the stereotypical "Halloween" theme of monsters, zombies, vampires etc...

Enter Cube. A film from 1997 that falls into our "90s" category.
