Shrieking heavy and riffy, some black industrial in parts, mostly rocking.
Negative Birth: Lord Mantis (Chicago) (0:28-7:21)
Curse Of The Neverending: Skelethal (France) (8:19-10:09)
Tons of buildup in this satisfying funeral doom.
Saturnine: Symptom (Portland) (10:27-17:24)
Sexy lyrics, heavy rock, catchy stuff.
Eternal Psalm, Pt. 2: Limb (London) (17:48-20:46)
Romance and dark atmosphere influences this doom band.
Hierophania: Naga (Italy) (20:56-27:24)
This duo with Stevie Floyd is tight and kept my interest.
No/Thing Longing, Human Impermanence: Taurus (Portland) (28:24-32:59)
Just some warm psychedelic to break up the dark.
Holy mondays: Mars Red Sky (France) (33:12-38:02)
Black and slow tempoed.
Chiropteris: Neptune's Inferno (NYC) (38:22-43:20)
Really great one-man band, heavy riffage, modern and old school.
emptiness: Samsara (Portugal) (44:13-49:45)
Hilarious Dutch band that rocks out, dark and fun and fist pumping.
BetrayerDeceiver: Herder (Netherlands) (50:07-55:26)
Floor is nerdy and not as hip as they were in the 90’s, but this album ah-ight. Their 1994 album Dove is one of the best, so I give them a thumbs up.
Sister Sophia: Floor (Florida) (56:17-END)

Show 108, so some hare Krishna 108. (Forced by Casey Baker)
108 (NYC): (0-2:31)
Female badassness. Great vocals.
Behold The Valley Of Slaughter: Bog Oak (Sacramento) (2:32-7:59)
My new favorite atmospheric heavy doom band with tons of riffs, WITH one of my favorite vocalists, the dude from Primordial.
Thirteen Clergy: Dread Sovereign (Ireland) (8:52-14:56)
New E.P. from my fave punk band, Iron Reagan.
Cops Don't Like Me, I Don't Like Cops: Iron Reagan (Richmond) (15:09-15:43)
San Francisco’s Cormorant is really headbanging worthy stuff. Proggy-style vocals, but still packs a punch.
Sold As A Crow: Cormorant (San Francisco) (16:07-22:19)
Hot swedes are somewhat romantic in this hardcore-influenced pummeling stuff.
The Romans Make A Desert And Call It Peace: Totem Skin (Sweden) (22:37-24:51)
Hesperian Death Horse's split with Hazarder rules. Maybe romance is in the air, mixed with guttural black.
Tesla: Hesperian Death Horse (Croatia) (25:39-34:00)
Dude, chugging thick and catchy. Chicago gots it goin’ on!
The Hound: Sacred Monster (Chicago) (34:14-39:19)
Michigan makes them agro.
saccarine: Dakhma (Michigan) (39:40-44:11)
Touching black metal from another Swedish band, Skogen.
Midvintergraven: Skogen (Sweden) (44:56-49:11)
I will probably listen to the new Stoneburner a hundred times this year. Guitarist from Buried at Sea.
You Are The Worst: Stoneburner (Portland) (49:27-53:06)
Technical hair metal bros.
Mare Of The Night: Below (Sweden) (53:44-END) 108: (0-2:31)
