A Song for the End by Kit Power

Becoming an overnight sensation was supposed to be a good thing.

Not for Bill Cutter, supply teacher and weekend rock star. His band, The Fallen, have just released their latest tune on social media, and it’s blowing up.

So is the body count.

Now, Bill faces a frantic race against time to stop the spread of the song, before the horrific effects can no longer be contained.

Terrifying, bitterly funny, and tragic, A Song For The End is a breakneck, bloodsoaked tale of truth, lies, consequences…and Rock N Roll.

The IndieMuse Review

Interesting concept and very good execution!

This comparison may surprise you a bit, but the main idea of this story is like a merger between Lullaby by Chuck Palahniuk and the Jim Carrey movie Liar Liar, during a threesome with Die Hard With A Vengeance

Here’s the idea: A small, unknown band creates a song which sounds like a sure fire hit. However, anybody who hears it must speak the truth or hemorrhage to death. While the lead singer of the band wants to stop the song from spreading, not everybody in the band feels the same way.
Who will win?

I know, it sounds funny, but the main idea here is terrifying. Should a song go viral and everybody who hears it must be truthful or die, everything will collapse. Everything!

Think about it: Politicians wiped out within a week, lawyers dead within days, employment impossible to sustain, actors…well, they are pretty much fucked, innit? Marriages, relationships, friendships—gone…

What in the world can be sustained? A serious question. I can’t think of anything right now.

Soooo…a story which comes across as light horror might have much more depth and philosophy than most people can wrap their heads around.

Really well done—recommend to horror fans who likes a lot of action.

MORT STONE

Mort Stone lives in untamed Africa, where he rides his lion to work every morning to slave away as a scientist who learned how to fake competency.

Reading is his passion…well, the one he can admit to, anyway. As an aggressive pacifist, he chooses to fight vicariously through stories which can bring him no physical harm.

While he is almost confidant that his IQ is in the top 50%, his wife regularly reminds him of all the stupid things he does. He will neither admit nor deny the accusations of sarcasm, but he can act like he cares. Most of the time.

As an avid reader of horror and thrillers, and somewhat of a movie buff in those genres, he still blames his insomnia on Global Warming. Because he can.

He would also like to apologize in advance for any swear words which might slip through…he will blame that on the insomnia.
