2 piece “despair hardcore” band on the Iron Lungs label. Yeah, I just made that genre up.
Journey To The End Of The Night: Demonbrother (Western Mass) (0:28-4:18)
Kurt Ballou from Converge produced Welsh band Hark – so you know it is mixed as well as it can be.
Breathe And Run: Hark (Wales) (5:16-11:27)
French black death. Drummer is out of control. Baby faces, aaaw.
Thrvst: Plebeian Grandstand (France) (11:39-16:45)
The Shrine had a great last album, they are on TeePee with Graveyard, and touring with them right now. I am a big fan of The Shrine for rock. If you don’t like rock, then move along.
Whistlings of Death: The Shrine (LA) (17:01-19:18)
4 years in the making, and it shows: gory death.
Anteinfierno: Teitanblood (Spain) (19:50-24:37)
Ringworm are old farts, but probably still have scary moshpits.
Dawn Of Decay: Ringworm (Ohio) (25:44-29:01)
Another awesome jammy rock band – been around since the 90’s, but haven’t put out anything for awhile. Great lyrics, great vocalist.
Soulless Woman: Ogre (Maine) (29:34-34:33)
I talk about fuckfaces.
Withering Field: Woods of Desolation (Australia) (35:17-41:27)
LARGE sounding black death stuff. I call it sinister.
Chaotic Astral Ascension: Shroud of the Heretic (Portland) (41:44-46:25)
Valknacht has the most awesome album cover,
Dorky but brutal.
Chants De Guerre: Valknacht (Quebec) (47:20-54:02)
Horror soundtrack music.
Battle With The Bottle: Wraithmaze (Finland) (54:34-END)

Death metal from Swedes is also psychedelic and moody and progressive.
Aurora In The Offing: Morbus Chron (Sweden) (0:28-5:25)
Loinen’s new album is on Svart records. Their sound is super downtuned, and only bass guitars – their guitarist committed suicide and this is a tribute.
Kuolemanselli: Loinen (Finland) (7:16-11:24)
I discuss the SF scene and pronouncing Slough Feg.
Laser Enforcer: Slough Feg (San Francisco) (12:10-16:19)
Crusty gothic graveyard horror metal.
The Bestial Abyss: Vampire (Sweden) (16:50-22:25)
Thick fuzz, a balm to my blistered brain.
Foehammer: Conan (England) (22:45-27:28)
Fuck your v that acts like a u. Other than that, this is raw, technical, chunneling metal.
Calicem Obscurum: Lvcifyre (U.K.) (28:28-32:48)
Not industrial, though they say it is. More melodic than that, and vocalist is straight-forward.
Chaos Body: Psalm Zero (NY) (33:11-38:58)
Speedy black hardcore.
The Cloven Path: Beroth (U.K.) (39:09-41:48)
Pink Floyd anyone? Ex-vocalist of Trouble, now with his own band. Very emotional.
As Long as I'm with You: Blackfinger (Chicago) (42:23-47:19)
Infectious riffy large sound.
Luna Hiena: Sioux (Portland) (48:09-52:29)
Heavy heavy sludge.
Luna Hiena: Cementerio (Spain) (52:37-56:19)
How is folk metal real. Really?
See on see maa: Metsatöll (Estonia) (57:04-END)
