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

0:25-8:50
MEDUSA1975 (CO)
Turn to Stone
— True 70’s band creating sorcerer metal on a new release. Grooving so hard.

10:04-17:09
JORDABLOD (Sweden)
Chants for the Black One
— Jordablod creates abstract black metal that jams out.

17:50-24:16
COMITY (France)
VI
— French mathcore band numbers, rather than names, their songs. Hardcore, angular, grindcore sounds harsh but this band splits up their sound.

24:56-28:37
ALL YOUR SISTERS (SF)
Open Wide
— Modern electronic dark wave duo do it so right.

29:15-34:55
WĘDROWCY~TUŁACZE~ZBIEGI (Poland)
Nad tajgą powiejmy
— Twangy guitar and theatrical Polish vocals bring eclectic to black metal. You must listen to me pronounce this band name, I am so good.

35:14-43:19
VISCERA (Italy)
Anxiety Prevails
— Melodic and grind pushed into a beast of a black metal sound, but with room for drone and psychedelic.

44:04-50:14
OFERMOD (Sweden)
Sun of Dead Seasons
— Another theatrical style of vocals, singing of Satan and dragons. Hot.

50:48-55:09
SELCOUTH (Finland/EU)
Below Hope
— A borg of European brains baking a carnivalesque and experimental concoction.

55:52-END
BELOW (Sweden)
1000 Broken Bones
— Flamboyant hair doom, flying dragons and warrior Vikings.

Behind My Vocals:
Pink Turns Blue, Red Zebra, Magic De Spell, Xmal Deutschland, Asylum Party, The Deep Eynde, Wolfsheim, The Frozen Autumn, Clan of Xymox

(0:25-3:25)
AJATTARA (Finland)
Ristinkirot
— Wretched vocals spewing Finnish is so hot. Death and folk and Satanic.

(4:39-6:50)
FULL OF HELL (MD)
The Cosmic Vein
— Explosive dynamic grindcore from the young’uns Full of Hell. This is better than their last, which says a lot.

(7:16-14:37)
WHITE WARD (Ukraine)
Deviant Shapes
— Sax is big in this sound, with pop and electronic encasing death and black.

(15:16-19:35)
ULSECT (Netherlands)
Unveil
— Cool album cover; and the sound is Dutch and moody and black and creepy and angular.

(20:21-23:30)
MUTOID MAN (NYC)
Wreck and Survive
— John Santos did Mutoid’s new spectacular cover. Mutoid is the best at bubbly AND technical.

(24:12-31:50)
ANOMIE (Azerbaijan)
Violet Girl
— Shimmering electronic black galaxy.

(32:28-39:53)
NARGAROTH (Germany)
The Agony of a Dying Phoenix
— Beautiful melody weaving through mid-tempo black metal.

(40:28-43:49)
SABBATH ASSEMBLY (TX/NYC)
Seven Sermons to the Dead
— Shining star in this sound is the vocalist – witchy, death rock, pagan, folk, throaty and sexy.

(44:43-52:23)
EXCOMMUNION (CO)
Nemesis
— Wicked dense and evil.

(53:00-END)
LOSS (Nashville)
All grows on tears
— I know, funeral doom is a weird one. Super slow, where are we, what are we doing. But this is one of the best I’ve heard, tons of surprises, lead-ups, riffs, and fuck yeah. Pain brings pleasure.

(0:25-7:41)
MURMUR (Chicago)
Larks Tongues in Aspic
— This is probably the best album in the last five years of my show. I have talked about it endlessly, and I think no one has listened. https://seasonofmist.bandcamp.com/album/murmur

(7:41-11:26)
YOUNG AND IN THE WAY (Charlotte)
Weep In My Dust
— Bros, YAITW are playing soon at DNA, so that is something to consider. They are churning black metal laden crust, and do it in this soul-crunching, beautifully brain-crushing way. Purely delicious.

(11:27-15:14)
HORISONT (Sweden)
Electrical
— Horisont is one of my all-time favorite revitalist bands. They've been around for 11 years and released their fifth album "About Time". I just went to see them live, and they were INCREDIBLE, as expected. They also wore the tightest pants EVER, and my eyes couldn't stop staring at their crotches. Not my fault.

(15:14-19:18)
EYESWITHOUTAFACE (Toronto)
Swallowing Static (The Law Falls Silent)
— In 2012 I named eyeswithoutaface Best Industrial band, creating modern club music for people in an asylum. 'Cause everyone needs to dance. They dive straight into experimental and just dark heavy sounds, mixing the edge of metal with synth and electronic.

(19:19-24:54)
BEZOAR (Brooklyn)
Vitamin B
— I am in love with the vocals for the Brooklyn band Bezoar; she is a witch. It is a bizarre Bezoar, with incredible avant-garde composition and immense song-writing.

(25:02-32:29)
MAGIC CIRCLE (Boston)
Magic Circle - Cloven In Two
— Members of Mind Eraser and Doomriders. I have loved this band so much, this is a riff-rich doom sound with incredible vocals, and it is just tasty as fuck. They have two full-length albums in the last few years; with an E.P. last year hopefully leading into another new album.

(32:30-36:02)
SECRET CUTTER (Pennsylvania)
Bees' Of The Mind
— The vocals will slice you, so sharp and heavy. Lovely boys. I fell in love with their self-titled album. They are just such a blindingly painful bright spot in sludge and black and everything naughty.

(36:03-40:53)
HORROR VACUI (Atlanta)
Return Of The Empire
— One of the best post-punk, goth, deathrock bands of this decade. Beastmilk came out with a hell of an album, but this is one that flew under the radar.

(40:54-47:02)
BLACK PYRAMID (Boston)
The Hidden Kingdom
— Black Pyramid is a severely underrated band. They are the perfect party album; to drink beer and shake fists in happy unison. If you haven't picked up any of their albums, and you aren't a curmudgeon and like catchy stuff, don't miss this shit. They are anthemic and Massachusetts folk, and mostly jam out deliciously.

(47:33-54:25)
CRYPT SERMON (Philly)
Out Of The Garden
- Crypt Sermon was definitely on everyone's lists when it came out, but did you actually listen to it? Their shining beacon was the vocalist, and builds and builds to a climax (doom).

(54:26-END)
BLUES PILLS (Sweden)
Little Sun
— Her voice drips with honey, soothing our tempestuous brains, allowing her soul to ease our pain. That is the blues, a comfort in these hard times. One of my favorite vocalists, accompanied with an incredibly talented jam-my band.

Drug Honkey. I first thought it was a stoner band, of course; and it ain’t stoner.  It is gritty Chicago experimental death and industrial with psychedelic and noise, and will surprise you at every turn.

Sickening Wasteoid: Drug Honkey (Chicago)(0:25-6:19)

You gotta wait for The Ruins of Beverast.  Atmospheric black demons in a parallel universe.  This is leathery beast metal. 

Surtur Barbaar Maritime: The Ruins of Beverast (Germany)(7:51-16:40)

I love the new Hawkwind: still sci-fi space hounds with a touch of hippie and psychedelic.  This is their 30th studio album!!

Magic Scenes: Hawkwind (London)(17:28-23:40)

Drum-loving Ulvegr breathes out fumes from an alien universe with a bleak landscape and ethnic tribal sounds.

Manifestations Of Havoc: Ulvegr (Ukraine)(24:21-29:22)

Swedish Donald Fagen.

Sad State Of Affairs: The Night Flight Orchestra (Sweden)(30:07-34:42)

Imagine making out with a demon.

Disintigration to Absolute Void: Jyotisavedanga (India/Russia)(35:20-39:33)

70’s blues from long-haired Germans.

Sad Guru Returns: Samsara Blues Experiment (Berlin)(40:01-47:52)

New Jersey black metal ain’t stylish.  It is muscular and raw and likes Italian food. 

Rites of the Black Herald: Abazagorath (New Jersey)(48:57-53:32)

Austin riffs.

Prisoner Of Eternity: Destroyer of Light (Austin)(54:02-END)
