She Likes It Heavy on Tuesdays, 7pm PST on,

Mutilation Rites is deconstruction metal – it breaks apart and comes back in many different forms.

Exhaling or Breathing In: Mutilation Rites (Brooklyn) (0:28-5:59)


Brand new Electric Wizard back after 4 years.  Lead singer says they basically killed the idea of their last amalgamation, and have been reborn.  Way more sinister. 


I am Nothing: Electric Wizard (U.K.) (6:59-15:58)


60’s and 70’s psychedelic influenced this experimental band. 


Hearts of Fire: The Grasshopper Lies Heavy (San Antonio) (16:37-21:15)


Lo fi Finnish black metal, with some melodic touches.


Sokeaa Valkoista: Circle of Ouroborus (Finland) (21:54-26:17)


Chick lead singer decimates.  Yes, this is a chick.


Decimation: Obscure Sphinx (Poland) (27:24-34:35)


Dark electronica, metal influence, industrial, even goth.


A Kiss To Birth The Rotted Sun: Burial Hex (Berlin) (35:05-41:42)


Dark post-metal


Draugr: Vultures at Arms Reach (Santa Cruz) (42:10-47:24)


Let the desert rock flow.

Hella classic technical thrash from New Zealand.  Great album cover.

Axiom: Exordium Mors (New Zealand) (0:28-5:03)


Oozing Wound is one of my fave bands right now.  Their albums tell a story, that you can listen to over and over again.  Full of colorful plots and character development.  Great album for a Saturday afternoon and a contender for a top album of the year. 


Ganja Gremlin: Oozing Wound (Chicago) (6:29-11:33) 

Super fucking thick sound from a Swiss band that is just putting out E.P.’s.  Maybe they know when to cut it short? Whatever the formula, it works.

Entranced by the Wolfshook: Bölzer (Switzerland) (2013) (12:02-18:25)


Sleep + Brainoil = Graves At Sea.  That isn’t such a bad computation.


This Place is Poison: Graves At Sea (Portland) (19:00-25:31)


Grind, death and prog – enough to wake you up from the murk of sludge.


Old Father: Bastard Feast (Portland) (26:29-28:31)


Again, a full-conceived album is what I yearn to hear, not just a few fist-pumping songs.  This one goes all over the place, including some hardcore stuff.


The Desanctification: Wolvhammer (Chicago/Minneapolis) (28:59-35:40)


I edited the SHIT out of some Bongripper for you.  Their songs go for 20 minutes+.  Really something you should hear, and check out for yourself.


Descent: Bongripper (Chicago) (36:12-41:34)


Some dark Texan chatter.


Strangers: Crumbling Mirth (San Antonio) (42:04-46:30)


Power-viking sludge.  Fun young bros.


Infernal Exhalations: War Bong (Nashville) (47:14-50:10)


If you don’t know Sleep, why am I talking to you.  This is brand new, after 20 years.


The Clarity: Sleep (Oakland) (50:59-END)

Satanic and vegan Antichrist Demoncore are mostly hardcore with a heavy foot in metal and twinges of punk. 

Overstimulated: ACxDC (SoCal) (0:28-1:45)


Weakling-sounding strains of post-metal intertwined in black metal


Exordium: Alraune (Nashville) (3:10-10:10)


Revitalist vocalist in Black Sabbath heavy-influenced, for a Saturday afternoon album


Karmanjaka: Purple Hill Witch (Norway) (10:35-15:35)


Related to Mitochondrian, death metal breakdown fun.


Novemportis: Auroch (Vancouver) (16:02-19:13)


Psychedelic and soundtracky – which to me basically means, it sets a very specific mood


Ozric Pentacles: Liquido Di Morte (Italy) (19:33-27:56)


Riffy, black sabbathy (yes I know yawn sometimes), but this one is a tight album and some brutal fist-pumping parts too


Invisible Face: Possessor (England) (28:53-32:46)


Well sung doom


The Penance You Pay: Serpent Venom (England) (33:08-38:26)


Desert rock with a great vocalist from LA.


No Soul: Moab (LA) (38:51-42:09)


Riffs, jams, atmosphere, space in mostly rocked out sludge.


Raging Hunger: Hyperwülff (Italy) (43:21-49:05)


Asian and middle eastern strains in this psychedelic band, with pagan too!


Peasant of Parthia: Zaum (Canada) (49:25-55:32)


I hate the vocals and the cymbals, though this is a large epic album.  


Waves of Exultation: Hush (Albany) (56:15-END)
