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)
