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

You know how you just want to make out with a guy, because he’s a great lead singer?  Dudes, they’re Irish (hottest accent ever).  He has this Celtic-folk tune to his voice (bro got my 2014’s Best Vocalist); and the band is just epic.  I never play a live album unless the songs are new, but Primordial is one of those bands that probably HAS to be seen/listened live.  No overdub. 

Empire Falls (Live): Primordial (Ireland)(0:28-7:58)

[UGH I HATE MAKING MISTAKES. I called Drought Year”s”, instead of Drought Year, on the live show, I apologize.]

The force is strong with the bassist of Drought Year.  They have this atmospheric-infused industrial groove mixed with the horror of deathrock, and the vocalist of a sludge band.  I was forced to buy them on vinyl. https://droughtyear.bandcamp.com/

Blood Throne: Drought Year (NC)(9:09-12:42)

Wait, Gnaw Their Tongues is a solo thing?  Maybe I knew that?  This is the sound of a serial killer drilling your head while you are tied up in a bathtub, watching the blood drain from your body.  Aw. 

Hold High The Banners Of Truth Among The Swollen Dead: Gnaw Their Tongues (Netherlands)(13:03-17:53)

Riff-tastic, groove thrash pumped with energy and fucking Swedish soul.

Netherworld Emperor: Witchery (Sweden)(18:21-21:24)

Strange atmospheric Portuguese black metal.  Because, yeah.

the Smirk of Kings: Monte Penumbra (Portugal)(21:53-28:32)

Somehow it took these Swedish dudes 30 years to release their debut album.  That is some perfectionist shit.  Don’t judge by one song here, this album runs a gamut. 

Chaos Of Reign: F.O.A.D. (Sweden)(Fuck Off And Die)(29:24-34:00)

Guest female vocalist on this song.  These dudes are not afraid of empty space. 

Mirrors In A Black Room: Ultha (Germany)(34:27-42:43)

Imagine a deathrock dude laying on the ground, just drained of blood from a vampire.  Blood splattered, and his skin pale and drawn. 

Effundet Saguinem: True Love (Nevada)(43:09-48:39)

In 2014, Dead Congregation got one of my “Best of”.  They are relentless, filthy, and soul-crushing. 

Wind’s Bane: Dead Congregation (Greece)(49:40-54:10)

There is nothing but torture to the next sound.  Obviously it relaxed me.

Ever Downward: Bastard Noise/Sickness (CA)(54:39-END)

Behind the Vocals: Dean Martin, Pearl Bailey, Frank Sinatra, Etta James, Nat King Cole, Sammy Davis Jr., Sarah Vaughan, Ray Charles, Buddy Greco
