Rich renaissance-style album art to accompany avant-garde and vivid melody and spiritual vocals.
Malmok jarnak: Thy Catafalque (Scotland)(0:28-10:30)
Chicago-style complexity and distorted guitars mixed with alternative, post-hardcore and post-punk.
Sunk: Ganser (Chicago)(11:45-16:53)
Deep and thoughtful melodic, the good kind.
Winter's Gate, Pt. 7: Insomnium (Finland)(17:31-22:53)
Greek black metal that is interestingly disjointed and noisy.
Winter: End (Greece)(23:51-30:32)
Sumptuous stoner kraut rock with Björk-style crystal sweet vocals.
Embryo: Katla (Sweden)(30:52-37:15)
Black metal that pumps in mosh-pit thrash.
Beneath the Relics of Old: Ravencult (Greece)(37:43-42:07)
Rocking synth and death rock and 70’s, but darker.
World Peace: Okkultokrati (Norway)(43:00-49:02)
European death metal is bringing in their nationality’s folk sounds, but in the good non-contrived way. Like Spanish folk death metal band Noctem, this band is bringing in the Roman folk-style.
Carthago Delenda Est: Ade (Italy)(49:42-54:20)
Come on, I had to play some Ukranian death metal off an excellent split with Swedish band Grift (played on Show 162).
His Twenty-Fourth Spring: Drudkh (Ukraine)(54:53-END)
