Bodog Music, the brainchild of billionaire digital entertainment mogul Calvin Ayre, will be in the middle of the action when fuse and Fangoria Entertainment join forces to bring audiences America's first televised fuse Fangoria Chainsaw Awards. The Chainsaw Awards, which are dedicated to the best in horror cinema, music and television, will be held Sunday, October 15 at the Orpheum Theater in Los Angeles and airs on the network on Sunday October 22nd at 9:30pm EST / 6:30pm PST.
Two of Bodog Music's premier acts will thrill attendees as they share in the madness happening around the Chainsaw Awards.
October 13 marks the start of events with Neurosonic appearing on Sirius Satellite Radio. Neurosonic is set to show the world what they are about on The Fangoria Show, hosted by Dee Snyder, the horror legend and former frontman for Twisted Sister. Fangoria Radio, a live, three-hour weekly radio show dedicated to horror culture, airs globally Friday nights from 10 pm-1 am ET on SIRIUS Stars channel 102. Neurosonic frontman Jason Darr exclaims, "I think it is absolutely amazing that I am playing an event as twisted and dark as the Fangoria show."
Darr and The Vincent Black Shadow's chanteuse Cassandra Ford will walk the "Black Carpet" during the pre-show, which offers a critique of the arriving guests' fashions and live performances by some of the biggest names in pop, rock and hip-hop. As the night progresses Jason and Cassandra will be among the long list of celebrities in attendance who will present one of the coveted awards. The celebrities attending include: Rob Zombie and his actress wife, Sheri Moon Zombie; The Used; Slipknot; Chingy; Fall Out Boy; Korn's Jonathan Davis; Gym Class Heroes and Cobra Starship. Categories include: "Best Butcher (Villain)", "Chick You Don't Want to Mess With", "Line that Killed", "Creepiest Kid", "Prince of Darkness (Darkest Male in a Music Video)", "Best Video Inspired by a Horror Film" and "Femme Fatale (Most Evil Female Character in a Music Video)".
"Fans of horror films and videos are among the most passionate of any genre, and we're happy to have our Bodog Music artists involved in these awards," says Calvin Ayre, Founder of the Bodog Entertainment Group.
The Vincent Black Shadow has the honor of rocking the first-ever "Gala of Gore" post-show, the official after-party held at Club 740 in LA that boasts music and film A-listers on the guest list.
Cassandra Ford proclaims, "These are the Oscars for the 'rest of us'. I would be lying if I said that being a part of an event that is essentially devoted to blood, guts and terror didn't make my day. I swear that I'm not a maniac or anything, but there's something about watching blood splatter on a wall that gets me going."
The Chainsaw Awards premiere on fuse Sunday, October 22 at 9:30 p.m. EST and will be broadcast several times throughout the Halloween season. Hosted by Jamie Kennedy of "Scream" fame, the show has a star-studded cast of performers. Cyber-savvy music and horror fans can follow the action and get many extras by heading to http://www.fuse.tv and http://www.Fangoria.com before, during and after the broadcast. Fuse viewers and horror fans alike will have the chance to help determine the award winners by voting at fuse.tv between September 1 and, naturally, Friday, October 13.
