She Likes It Heavy on Tuesdays, 7pm PST on bostonfreeradio.com, prajmetal@gmail.com

A show of this year's faves so far.

0:56-6:36
WORMWITCH (Vancouver)
Vernal Womb
— Distinct twists within crusty riffy anarchistic tempo changes. The perfect album.

7:07-13:45
PHOBONOID (Italy)
MOA-192b
— Immersive guitars become meditation, with evil electronic heartbeats throbbing sinister.

14:07-18:02
SOULMASS (FL)
Praise the Sun
— Crisp production and strangling gurgling vocals, all within a wall of head churning explosion.

18:37-24:14
DIÄT (Berlin)
Missed the Bus
— This isn't just a modern take on nostalgia; this band plays homage to old school alternative, post-punk, electro, punk and industrial. They have created a unique mix on a wide spectrum ranging from poppy to ambient to gothy-dance. Respect.

24:52-29:05
FESTERDAY (Finland)
Gravelove
— Festerday had a splash of melodic and catchy - a bit like Deadbird - in their version of rampaging death. Super fun album. Crazy they started nearly 30 years ago, but haven't made music for 25.

29:37-34:45
LIGHT DWELLER (AR)
Sloven
— Arizona births jagged angular sharp complex death.

35:09-40:37
DOWNFALL OF GAIA (Germany)
The Grotesque Illusion of Being
— Ignore the terrible cheesy band name. Deeply emotional post-metal hides behind the melodic black metal in the forefront, heavy on the riffs.

41:05-47:07
FANGE (France)
Il Reconnaîtra Les Siens
— Fange has it all, including noise, industrial, hardcore, sludge, laid atop a slab of atmospheric black metal.

48:01-54:49
GUÐVEIKI (Iceland)
Gullveigar sverðsins
— Another explosive alien black metal offering from Iceland, raw and progressive and scary.

55:09-END
TERRE (Belgium)
Filth Below
— Dark species of sludge; down-tuned to reach the pit of your soul.
