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

Sharp, angular and difficult to listen to: perfect for the weirdo in your life.

Denigrating in the Tanks: Idylls (Brisbane, AU) (0:28-3:02)

 

Violent, aggressive grind from of course, Denver.  Members hail from Primitive Man.

 

9 Fruitless Years Of Total Fucking Agony: Vermin Womb (Denver) (4:12-8:15)

 

Dozer is one of my fave bands, and spun-off to Greenleaf, thank gawd because Dozer has been defunct for awhile.  Because of the talent, Greenleaf has attracted members from other high-profile bands like Truckfighters and others but I can’t remember.

 

Ocean Deep: Greenleaf (Sweden) (8:47-14:13)

 

Greg Wilkinson is brilliant and anything he touches is awesome, raw and relevant.

 

Sex Teeth: DeathGrave (Oakland) (14:38-16:42)

 

Local band is making it big, Hornss is getting a ton of press and deservedly so.  Catchy, groovey stoner that thrash out, making it very fist-worthy.

 

Maker Of The Moons: Hornss (San Francisco) (17:25-20:23)

 

Doesn’t matter that Barghest has one of the stupidest album covers I have ever seen.  Their take on black metal is in one word: bad-the fuck-ass.  Barghest, is that with a hard g or soft g sound?

 

Agonizing Spiritual Descent: Barghest (Baton Rouge) (20:52-26:02)

 

Minot are gorgeous instrumental proggy and math-oriented, but sometimes become groovy and just damn fun.  Is that ok? For music to be fun? 

 

Tharsis: Minot (Oakland/NC) (27:25-33:39)

 

Owl’s new album is akin to the dawn.  I don’t know what that means, but maybe it is about dark giving way to energy?  If so, I guess that makes sense.  It is very darkly pummeling, but doesn’t linger it.  Instead it gives way to a larger brighter composition of sound. 

 

We Ascend As We Fall: Owl (Germany) (34:13-37:55)

 

I would leave you, in a second, for the dude in Misery Index.

 

Conjuring the Cull: Misery Index (Baltimore) (38:39-43:24)

 

Swedish heartfelt sad stuff = funeral doom.

 

Earthless: Doom:VS (Sweden) (44:17-51:47)

 

Experimental droney growly metal and drone and stuff.  Atmospheric!

 

Väärä Kuu: Katakombi (Finland) (52:15-57:26)

Spastic vocals to end the show.

 

Konditionierungsapparat: Japanische Kampfhorspiele (Germany) (57:59-END)

I discuss Portland as the best scene, and then Agalloch’s new album that totes took me back to the late 80’s – they have this great post-punk influence to this album.  F’in A layered in the melody well into this shiznit.

Dark Matter Gods: Agalloch (Portland) (0:28-9:02)

Psychedelic Japanese, need I say more.  I heard some obvious Indian influence in their instrumental stuff.  They are improvisational live, so this is a show to check out, if they EVER come out to the west.

There Is No Other Place: Kikagaku Moyo (幾何学模様) (Tokyo) (10:33-13:46)

Nightfell is a 2 piece, including the awesome drumming of Tim Call from Aldebaran.

Funeral Dirge: Nightfell (Portland) (14:13-20:30)

Worst name ever, Dopelord, like what the fuck, seriously.  But, they jam it out, and that I appreciate.

Green Plague: Dopelord (Poland) (21:04-28:23)

MAYBE this is an acquired taste, but so is wine and sashimi, the best 2 things on earth.  Get your ass out of your head. I am confused by Connecticut though.

Piece Of Meat: Vestal Claret (Connecticut) (29:17-34:12)

I talk about why the new Serpentine Path is boring, as are most super groups. 

Origin: Infestus (Germany) The Reflecting Void (34:40-40:48)

The newest caustic hardcore that has my full attention.  For like, the next 2 minutes because I don’t care about anything anymore.

Swelling: Cholera (U.K) (41:00-43:27)

Terra Tenebrosa is MY band, I don’t care if you don’t know it.  F you anyway.

Apokatastasis: Terra Tenebrosa (Sweden) (44:28-51:10)

This band is one of the best for epic black metal, and then I just want to die.

The Ascend: The Great Old Ones (France) (52:23-END)

Mosh pit metal with a girl lead singer.  I think.

Insomnia: Svffer (Germany) (0:28-1:59)

 

Pummeling and sludgey all at the same time!

 

Instant Death Syndrome: Coffinworm (Indianapolis) (2:56-7:43)

 

Yeah, I give myself credit for introducing you to Yellow Eyes, and I will keep that credit and lord it over you forever

 

One Rock For The Wild Dog: Yellow Eyes (Brooklyn) (8:10-13:25)

 

Groaning, tons of it, and melodic stuff.

 

Hirudinea: Orox (Buffalo) (13:46-19:31)

 

Dark crusty hardcore, almost as tuff as Oasis.

 

Kvarblivelse: Esoteric Youth (Manchester) (19:57-22:48)

 

Nux Vomica, which is a type of tree, awesome name for a band, has great instrumental compositions in the middle of massive brutal epic stuff.

 

Reeling: Nux Vomica (Portland) (23:20-27:52)

 

Occult sludge, with snide vocals.

 

Nothing Hill: Salem's Pot (Sweden) (28:46-36:24)

 

Vocals of Thou, and then Thou with the Body or something. 

 

Pill: Thou (Baton Rouge) (37:02-39:59)

 

Manifest Alchemy: Thou and the Body (Baton Rouge, Portland) (40:01-45:21)

 

Norse mythology, folk, and black metal.

 

The Stream: Ifing (Michigan) (46:28-53:19)

 

Auric is dark sludge, totally rocks out.

 

Swept and Swallowed: Auric (Arkansas) (54:00-END)
