Heroes and Villains Clash in Chemical Brothers’ New ‘Eve of Destruction’ Video
Ahead of the Chemical Brothers’ headlining gig at Glastonbury, the electronic duo have released their new video for “Eve of Destruction,” the opening track off their recent album No Geography.

In the spirit of the legendary Japanese sci-fi series Ultraman, the “Eve of Destruction” video, directed by the duo’s longtime visual collaborators Adam Smith and Marcus Lyall, features an army of elaborately dressed superheroes and villains in Dyi outfits duking it out to the Chemical Brothers’ frenzied beat.

Chemical Brothers previously shared videos for “Free Yourself,” “Mah” and “We

Review: The Chemical Brothers Beats Are Still Big on ‘No Geography’

Give it up for the Chemical Brothers. Genres and trends come and go, festival gods rise and fall. Yet Tom Rowlands and Ed Simons stay eternally true to their block rocking vision. The duo has now outlasted two stupidly-named marketing gimmicks designed to sell dance music to normals: electronica (which they sort of helped invent in the Nineties) and Edm (which they’ve admirably ignored throughout the last decade). Their last album, 2016’s Born in the Echoes, stuck with a formula that’s worked for them for a quarter century:

See Joe Perry Play Fiery ‘Aye Aye Aye’ With Cheap Trick, Stone Temple Pilots Members
Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry recruited Cheap Trick singer Robin Zander, Stone Temple Pilots guitarist Dean DeLeo and Stp bassist Robert DeLeo for a rattling live version of “Aye, Aye, Aye” filmed at L.A.’s Roxy Theatre in January.

Perry commands the track with a handful of bluesy riffs and solos, and Zander pushes his vocal range by howling the main hook. Drummer David Goodstein and keyboardist Buck Johnson (Aerosmith) also accompanied Perry on the song, a highlight from his sixth solo LP, the January-issued Sweetzerland Manifesto.

‘The Vietnam War’ Review: Ken Burns’ Exhaustive Conflict Biography Shows How to Learn from History’s Errors
While spending a career highlighting some of U.S. history’s most notable figures — Jackie Robinson, the Roosevelts, Jack JohnsonKen Burns has also undercut the idea of the “ordinary American.” Not only finding worthy stories in the lives of titanic men and women who still loom large over the public consciousness, he’s been able to elevate lesser-known individuals from the respective histories of baseball, the Civil War, jazz, and more, showing that those eras and institutions were also shaped by people less often regarded as heroes.

The great equalization of the past is on display once again in Burns’ and co-director Lynn Novick’s “The Vietnam War,” a mammoth, 18-hour history told through and by members from both sides of the ill-fated conflict. Journalists and soldiers, government officials and Gold Star families all add to an understanding of Vietnam, presented without varnish or favoritism. A tale for modern audiences,

Lex Luthor To Confront Mr. Oz This August In Action Comics #986

Since the Rebirth era kicked off last summer, one of the biggest mysteries it’s yielded has been that of the identity of the shadowy Mr. Oz. Many readers have theorized him to be Ozymandias of Watchmen fame, a fire that the conclusion to “The Button” added fuel to. One thing, however, has remained certain: The hooded fellow has a vested interest in Superman.

And while we may not learn who he really is until Doomsday Clock hits stands this November, it looks like we’ll at least get something worthwhile this August in the pages of Action Comics when “Mr. Oz makes his final move against the Man of Tomorrow.” Oddly enough, this arc won’t be penned by fan favorite Dan Jurgens, but rather, Rob Williams, whom we already know to be taking the reins of Trinity that very month. Whether the switch is permanent or Jurgens is

The Grimm gang finally get inside the chest of the seven keys and what do they find? Er...

This review contains spoilers.

5.12 Into The Schwarzwald

This week Grimm hit its much talked-about 100th episode, and in the main, it didn’t disappoint.

Show creators Jim Kouf and David Greenwalt had previously teased a big reveal to the four-and-a half-season-long storyline involving those damn keys, but they were still in no hurry to reveal their secrets.

As a result we see Nick and Monroe overcome one obstacle after another in their search to locate the buried treasure. In the style of the best Indiana Jones outings, the two have to deal with underground catacombs, piles of ancient bones, and figure out a secret marker to the treasure before finally uncovering the mysterious chest of secrets. (Because it’s Grimm though, they also have to escape an angry German

Grimm season 5 is building up to its 100th episode with a Black Forest adventure in search of the mysterious seven keys...

5.11 Key Move

“Into the woods we go.”

And so Grimm’s Black Forest adventure steps up a gear, with Nick and Monroe swapping the Oregon woods for the German equivalent in their quest to discover hidden treasure.

Last summer, the show’s executive producers hinted that they had big plans for the show’s 100th episode, coming up next week. “We’re going to explain the damn keys,” Grimm co-creator David Greenwalt told a Comic-Con audience, before adding: “We’ still don’t know what they do but by god we’re going to explain it.”

It looks like Greenwalt is keeping his word as we approach episode 100 with Nick and Monroe up to their necks in the forest – literally – being pursued by

Road trip!

Yes it looks like the Grimm gang is finally off on a European adventure after they discover a series of mysterious links back to the old country.

Well, the links are actually the long-forgotten keys from season one, now that the writers seem to have remembered they exist. They were part of an important thread at the time, so we should be grateful that the story is being picked up again, even if it’s all still quite fuzzy at the moment. Essentially, they're a set of keys that produce a map to a place where something – no-one knows what – is buried. But let’s assume whatever it is, is really important.

What is also very important – to

Grimm ratchets up the horror in this week's season 5 episode, with some distressing scenes of torture...

This review contains spoilers.

5.9 Star Crossed

Grimm’s fifth season continued its descent into darker territory this week.

Alongside a behind-the-scenes glimpse into how Hadrian’s Wall operates, a Wesen storyline that fits well into the show’s main story arc and a potential jab at modern politics, we were also witness to some previously unseen levels of horror.

We are given a glimpse of how Meisner, Trubel and Eve have been working as a team to counter the threat of Black Claw. They each bring something different to the fight – whether that’s martial arts prowess, combat skills or mad telekinesis combined with a disconcerting lack of empathy – they get the job done. With its bunker HQ and latest surveillance technology it almost feels like a Hadrian’s Wall spin-off

Grimm season 5 episode 8 review: A Reptile Dysfunction

This review contains spoilers.

5.8 A Reptile Dysfunction

Last week Grimm returned with a bang.

This week, A Reptile Dysfunction (yep, comedy gold there) finds us back on more familiar ground, with the writers deciding they don’t want to jump wholeheartedly into the show’s biggest storyline to date just yet.

So while more information about Black Claw’s monstrous activities comes to light, the show clutches onto the comfort blanket that is a Wesen-of-the-Week story, which while mildly entertaining, served as little more than a distraction from the darker and much more interesting events that are unfolding from the Wesen Uprising.

This week involves a river monster called a Wasser Zahne that is hired by a couple of Luisant-Pêcheur (otter-like creatures acting out of character here) to exploit an old Loch Ness Monster-style myth in order to drum up business for their lakeside business. This inevitably goes wrong,

Twisty, tense and satisfyingly dark, Grimm has returned from its season 5 break better than ever...

5.7 Eve Of Destruction

“We are at war.”

And so our favourite fairy-tale-based procedural returns following its break for the holidays, and bloody hell, it's back with a kick!

I’m not sure who spiked the writers’ punch over the festive period but this week’s episode was twisty, tense and satisfyingly dark in places. More importantly, it hinted at its biggest and most ambitious storyline to date.

To recap, Portland is under threat from the Wesen uprising. Nick, Monroe, Renard, Hank and Wu are trapped and all in serious danger until Juliette appears – blonde and back from the dead – to save them.

We discover Juliette was still alive when Chavez took her and Trubel from Nick’s. Somehow they managed to turn mild-mannered Juliette into their own Nikita,
