G. Paul Salvetti will be “Officer Schiano” in Devil’s Five


When a slight conflict came up during the shooting of “Stash”, Director Terry Wickham suggested to actor G. Paul Salvetti that that he thought it would be better for him to appear in the segment of Devil’s Five instead.  Terry says, “I explained that the new character I could see him playing and what happens during the opening scene of the entire feature film, would be something the audience would never forget.  After reading the script, G. Paul readily agreed and felt it was a great solution.  So G. Paul was the first person cast for Devil’s Five segment having accepted the offer to play “Officer Schiano” in July of 2014.”

Paul Salvetti is an American actor and producer whose interests extend to all aspects of film production.

Born in NY, raised in NJ, he attended G.W.U. in Washington, DC. where he graduated with a B.A. in Criminal Justice. After a “lucky” motorcycle accident, he landed with two feet on Wall Street, working there for a few years as a market-maker before transitioning to medical manufacturing, and then as a mechanic.

G. Paul’s career as an actor began later in life (even though he’s always been told he’s a character). He has a special affinity for period pieces and remains connected to history and art creation with his current profession as a demonstration blacksmith in historic Clinton NJ.

G. Paul remains eternally grateful to all those who have given him the opportunity to shine both in front and behind the camera.

Veronica Freeman to co-star in Devil’s Five as “Vala Schneider”


Terry R. Wickham is real excited to let everyone know he has cast Veronica Freeman to play “Vala Schneider” in the upcoming foundation segment Devil’s Five for the feature film of the same name.  The director says, “I’ve known Veronica since 2008.  We’ve been talking about working together for many years now.  We almost did a music video together back in the fall of 2011, but unfortunately it got cancelled a week out from shooting.  Last December, my friend Ernie Behrens and I visited Veronica while she was shooting the film Bite School at Five Towns College in Dix Hills, NY.  After leaving the shoot, Ernie asked me when I was going to put Veronica in one of my movies.  I hadn’t really ever thought of her as an actress but after he put the thought in my head, I started thinking about the wraparound for Devil’s Five.  I wanted an actress who was exotic with dark skin (check), dark hair (check), sexy (check) and could appear threatening once possessed (check).  So I called Veronica and pitched the role to her.  She thought about it for day and let me know she really wanted to do it and added it was about time I asked her.”

Veronica Freeman is known for her powerhouse vocals as the front woman for the heavy metal band Benedictum.  Now she’s expanding out on a solo career with a solo album due later this year and will be spotlighted in the wraparound episode of the feature film Devil’s Five, to be directed by Terry Wickham.  Veronica stuck her toe in the water of the film industry by being featured in the film Bite School, Directed by James Balsamo.  In Devil’s Five, she will play the dramatic co-starring role of “Vala Schneider.”  It’s been a banner year for the voluptuous American Indian beauty and she has no plans of stopping now.

Eclipse – Armageddonize


Eclipse – Armageddonize

Frontiers Records – 2015

This band from Sweden have boosted their sound on the second album I’ve heard from them, with a more meaty guitar approach.  The heavier sounding tactic makes for an excellent melodic hard rock experience.

Eclipse kicks the disc off with energetic guitar riffs in “I Don’t Wanna Say I’m Sorry” and Erik Martensson’s clean vocals.  The band is big on harmony with catchy tunes  “Stand on Your Feet” and “The Storm”,  I wouldn’t be surprised if you started singing along with them because I did.

I love the soulful guitar shredding beginning of “Blood Enemies” but the only problem is, I wish it would have been longer.  Erik Martensson who not only sings but plays guitar, does a magnificent job tag teaming with guitarist Magnus Henriksson as the duo tear some killer licks on the six-string instrument.

The riff in “Wide Open” carries strength and powers the track.  The chorus really soars in the fifth tune.

My favorite track on this album is “Live Like I’m Dying.”  It’s got a dark, moody opening that combs a deep passionate musical feel that teeters from gut wrenching pain to aggressive anger, exemplified by huge power chords.

“Breakdown” reminds me of Tesla, maybe because of the slide guitar incorporated.

“Live Bites” is an absolute lethal tune with pulverizing guitars sinking their teeth into you.  These guys can really rock it and I love when they don’t hold back or lift the throttle.  My advice is to keep pressing it to the floor, because awesome tunes like this result.

I love the big punchy guitar riffs in “Caught Up in the Rush” and how the lyrical flow works in conjunction.  I couldn’t help but get charged by the song.  Eclipse has a good hold on how the lyrics can be lifted with the right amount of instrumental support from the guitars, bass and drums.  Bravo.

The chunky guitars that tear it up in “One Life – My Life” were definitely to my liking.

The band doesn’t lighten up their guitar power for the last track “All Died Young”, which is a smart move.

Armageddonize is the best album I’ve heard at this point (late April) of 2015.
