The Living Dead and the Great Collapse: A Zombie Story

The zombie Hill family
I know that zombies are everywhere, but I've decided to introduce you fine folks to some All Flesh Must Be Eaten inspiration that may have flown under your radar.

My friend Mikal kHill, has a great zombie apocalypse themed album, The Living Dead and the Great Collapse: A Zombie Story (formerly known as The Walking Dead, which is a reference to an earlier kHill song, not the comic of the same name).

The 12 track album tells the story an outbreak, from kHill's perspective. It starts at his home, heads into Charlotte, and finally back to his home. This album is a bit surreal for me to listen to. I'm friends (or at least acquaintances) with several of the folks mentioned and have been to some of the locations, such as the World Famous Milestone Club. You should definitely give it a listen (and purchase it while you're at it).

For your All Flesh Game:
All right, so how does this fit into All Flesh? The album is a very personal take on what happens in a Romero style outbreak. It gives a glimpse of how folks break down (and potentially rise up depending on your views) during a zombie crisis. If you'd like some classic shamblers as presented by The Living Dead and the Great Collapse: A Zombie Story, you're in luck, coincidentally I just made them.
