Warm southern grind.  Makes sense?

Our Creation: Columns (NC) (0:28-2:43)

 

Pilgrim is now a 2-piece with some pretentiously named guy The Wizard doing guitar and bass.  Melody leans toward the melancholy ala Pallbearer-style. 

 

The Paladin: Pilgrim (RI) (3:58-8:00)

 

Atmospheric, folksy integrated black metal, but in a natural non-contrived way.

 

The Long Road, II. Capricious Miles: Panopticon (KY) (8:35-16:27)

 

Pranjal’s voice is very majestic, it brainwashes you into thinking you are standing in a cathedral with dragons flying overhead.  The lyrics are thoughtful and dripping with imagery.  Last year’s album was a riffy sludge-filled album; this one incorporates a bit more melancholy. Hey, who doesn’t like to be kicked in the gut with emotion.

 

The Outlier: Cardinal Wyrm (Oakland) (17:13-24:02)

 

Krieg is like, a totes black metal and crust band.  Whattup.

 

Worthless Nothing (Doom cover): Krieg (NJ) (25:04-27:25)

 

Oh my heart, a female led Graveyard-esque band.  This album is MASSIVE.

 

Black Smoke: Blues Pills (Sweden) (27:59-33:04)

 

Vukari is like, yeah, we are black metal and stuff, but we can make you cry.

 

Riddled With Fear And Doubt: Vukari (Chicago) (33:37-38:52)

 

Yet another band from Arizona filled with seething anger, I like.  But also, Arizona blows.

 

Blowback: Territory (Tucson) (39:04-41:16)

 

More of a shifting hardcore album: tempo-changing, genre-bending weirdos.

 

Standing On the Shoulders of Omega: Northern Widows (Columbus)(41:46-45:05)

 

A thickly riffy fist-pumping whiskey-flavored band.

 

Stoic: Nervewrecker (U.K.) (46:03-50:17)

 

I go off about the idea of metal.  This band is BRUTAL.

 

(Proto)Christ: Coprocephalic (San Diego/Taiwan)(51:08-54:28)

 

Agoraphobic Nosebleed member, and label.  Tiki-influenced grind.

 

Vestige of Surfly Remains: Wadge (Canada) (55:10-56:25)

 

Thanks FLOOD for having an album named OAK and making it entirely impossible to find you on the internet.  Good thinkin’!

 

Holy Astro Shaman Part I: Flood (Oakland) (57:03-END)\
