Stars of ‘Madder Than a Full Moon Dog’, ASOMVEL, had their new album, Knuckle Duster named ‘Album of the Week’ by editor in chief of Mojo Magazine
, Phil Alexander, for his Planet Rock
radio show recently. Metal Hammer
declared ASOMVEL their ‘Hot New Band’ in last month’s edition. Kerrang!
gave the band KKKK in their latest edition; every magazine from The Guardian
to the best of the best metal magazines and webzines have all been shouting about them….
"...pulls off the neat trick of being both utterly authentic and thrillingly relevant. The best heavy metal has plenty of dirt under its fingernails: this lot must never be allowed to work in a food preparation area" Dom Lawson ~ The Guardian
“…maverick charisma, heads-down determination and sheer balls, all of which ‘Knuckle Duster’ has in, well, spades. Ace” ~ Terrorizer
"Devastating and inspirational, 'Knuckle Duster' could have inspired Voivod and Sodom to the kind of heights 'Filth Hounds Of Hades' and 'Iron Fist' itself did back in 1982." ~ Iron Fist Magazine
“This is filthy primal savagery for pure hell raisers only; all pretenders will have their balls blown off when listening to this album. This is great high octane gritty metal rock n roll, turn it up to eleven, open a can of special brew, light a smoke and enjoy.” ~ Brutalism
"ASOMVEL's second opus lives up to its name and provides a veritable kick up the arse of UK metal, making us realise what this country has long been about and yet for so long neglected." ~ Metal Forces
“Knuckle Duster the new album from UK band Asomvel is an uncompromising and thrilling storm of prime beef heavy metal…. one of the true joys of UK’s metal underground” ~ The Ringmaster Review
"Heads-down, headbanging and bruising, non-pretentious, no-bullshit tunage” ~ Metal Shock
“Enjoying Knuckle Duster is easy; just turn it on, turn it up and repeat as necessary.” ~ About.com
“Makes you wanna reach for your cut-off denim and head down the pub to tell your mates the new band you’ve discovered… Asomvel are definitely one of the best metal bands to emerge from the U.K. in a long while.” ~ Mass Movement
“…grimly menacing like a bunch of bikers standing in the doorway of a pub, eyeing up your bird…Asomvel do what I expect them to do best and that’s write addictive, no frills tunes that are substantially heavy and significantly metal; what more do you want?” ~ Ave Noctum
“Knuckle Duster is hard music that sounds like it’s played by hard men who do hard work and then relax with hard liquor and harder women… roll down your car windows, crank these songs, and head to the liquor store” ~ Invisible Oranges
"The perfect soundtrack for booze and bar fights." ~ Musikreviews.de
"Riff after glorious riff, this is one album you won't want to be without. It's heavy metal at its finest." ~ Ripple Effect
''If you like your music hard and fast...you will love Asomvel.'' ~ Planet Mosh
“Even though I "took a big chance at the high school dance" when I bought this one blind it paid off big time! This is one of those "9 points out of 10 points" or “three and a half stars out of four" albums…epic in magnitude and ready for the big time/primetime baby!" ~ Heavy Metal Time Machine

Huge thanks to our excellent distributors, Wienerworld Ltd.
18 October 2013, North Yorkshire, England & Connecticut, US
– Starjack Entertainment partners Deborah Louise Robinson and Pamela S. K. Glasner are about ready to get all dolled up to paint the town pink – yes, pink, not red! – ever since their distributor, SnagFilms Inc. of New York City, informed them that their documentary film, “Last Will and Embezzlement”, would be broadcast across the US via seven of the largest platforms, meaning as of this week, the movie is now available to an audience of approximately 200 million.
The platforms are Comcast, iTunes, Verizon, Amazon, Google Play, Vudu, and xBox, all of which are available immediately, except xBox, which is coming in just a few weeks.
“If anyone had ever told me,” Glasner laughed, “just three short years ago, that I, along with a woman I met on Facebook, who lives 3000 miles away, in another country, on another continent, would make a movie and it would be broadcast by the largest cable company in the United States, let alone seven
companies, I’d have told them they were nuts!”
But that’s precisely what happened. “Last Will and Embezzlement”, which takes on the ever-burgeoning problem of elder financial exploitation, has been making waves nationwide since it was launched at the Quad Cinema on West 13th Street in Manhattan on April 13th, 2012. It is being utilized as a teaching tool by such notable institutions and organizations as Penn State Law School, the Utah State Law Library, Wells Fargo Advisors, Area Agencies on Aging across the country, as well as banks, insurance companies, law offices … and the list goes on.
Robinson’s reaction was equally excited and animated: “That this, our first film, should be accepted by America’s most prestigious networks is just amazing! Because of the importance of the subject matter, I could not be more delighted that millions upon millions of people will have the opportunity to see our film - and learn how to protect themselves and their loved ones.”

Ask any five people what ‘confidentiality’ means and they will all likely give you some version of the commonly-accepted definition: if I tell you something, don’t tell anyone else. They’d be correct, of course, but their answer would also be incomplete. There is another aspect to this concept which I’d venture to say few ever consider. I believe confidentiality is more than just “Please don’t bring it up to other people,” I think the hard and fast rule should be, “Please don’t bring it up, period
This is something I became acutely aware of after my ordeal with cancer. There were complications. My oncologist, bless his heart, got rid of my cancer, but he made mistakes and I was quite ill for quite some time. But I’m a trooper — I wasn’t going to let it keep me down!
What amazed me, though, was just how many people there were who not only wanted to hear my tales of woe themselves, but enthusiastically urged me to be the life of the party by entertaining their family and friends with as many gory details as I could possibly recall, in as much gruesome technicolor as I could possibly manage. Never mind that I had chosen to attend this shindig so I could, if only for short bursts at a time, forget I was a cancer patient recovering from what was arguably the most frightening event in my life — there was a horror story to be had and my new-found fans seemed impatient to hang on each and every revolting word.
I really, really did not want to embarrass my hostess, but I really, really
, REALLY did not want to spend the remainder of my one evening out wading waist-deep into the one quagmire I’d braved the outside world to escape. As gently, but firmly, as I could, I refused.
Of course, I’m glad I had the intestinal fortitude to do that, but I cannot help but think: all of us have horrors in our lives, in one manner or another. None of us will pass through this life completely unscathed. So shouldn’t we, since we all know what it’s like to try and temporarily forget something only to have some well-meaning (or not-so-well-meaning) person bring it up and remind us when we least want them to (grrrrr!!!), think about being a little more respectful of another person’s guts before
heedlessly insisting they spill them all over the floor?
That’s where true confidentiality comes in. If someone shares something in confidence, particularly something that’s difficult to bear, maybe we should go a step further with our definition than just not bringing it up at the next town meeting. Maybe we should not bring it up at all, to anyone, ever, just in case the one who told us finally managed — even for a few minutes — to put it aside as they struggle to put their life back together. It’s that person’s
story. If they want to talk about it, they’ll tell you. But until then, I think the most humane and loving thing we can do is keep their confidence — even from them! Pamela S. K.

The Second Installment of “Something Beyond Survival” is Published! And it’s even more powerful than the first. Read it on the Huffington Post by following this link:

Here's a bit of what's in this week's installment:
If I spend my time — and my love and my peace — hating the perpetrator, then I have given him my power. Without even being in my presence, indeed, most likely, without even giving me a second thought, he has power over me and I am his victim. If I choose to participate in his war, on his terms, on his battleground, I have given him my power and, again, I am his victim. And if I lose that war, which is all but predetermined because the battleground — and all the ground rules — are of his choosing and his making, then he has power over me and I am his victim.

“A friendly neighbor offers to go pick up an elderly couple’s license plates. He has them sign a specific power of attorney for that sole purpose, printed from an automobile-club website. He takes that to the bank and uses it to withdraw money from the couple’s account.”
