Dark, dank Philly has created filthy atmospheric sludge. Yep, of course.
Begotten Grimoire: Hivelords (Philly)(0:28-6:53)
My 2013’s Best Saturday band Kadavar has a new album, and I am in love. Retro-revitalist stuff, they do it so well.
The Old Man: Kadavar (Germany)(8:10-12:10)
Belgium has that dark pummeling stuff, goes down as well as one of their ales. Gawd, I want that red sour Flemish ale right now, go check it out at La Trappe after listening to this.
Kwaad Bloed: Wiegedood (Belgium)(12:48-19:29)
2012’s Best Saturday band has a new split, and more of their awesomeness in hardcore sludge doom stuff.
Skull File: Sons of Tonatiuh (Atlanta)(20:09-26:03)
You may hate this Swedish band, it is an acquired taste. It is a feel-good Mercyful Fate
Riders of Vultures: Year of the Goat (Sweden)(27:18-34:38)
Foggy, filthy, bloody. Theatrical as all hell.
I Am Contempt: Lychgate (London)(35:04-39:24)
Crust from West Oak-town..
consumed: Atrament (W.Oakland)(39:54-42:58)
Gorgeous compositions, classical in nature, and then just plain brutal cold black metal stuff.
Yesteryear: So Hideous (NYC)(43:49-51:20)
Canadians. Are they the best people or what?
Storm Of Silence: Fuck the Facts (Ottowa)(51:44-54:23)
Drear: Creeping (New Zealand)(55:11-END)

Hedonistic thrash fun blast party beer headbang love everyone fuck you.
To Propagate The Void: Black Fast (St.Louis)(0:28-5:38)
Math-y, completely pretentious and absolutely lovely.
Over Spirit: Krallice (NYC)(7:26-14:07)
Emotional, catchy, dark, hot, evil. Does that make sense? Who the fuck cares.
The Mithriditist: Behold! the Monolith (LA)(14:50-22:39)
Dense as fuck, but your brain grabs the thread of melody running through. Exquisite.
Abyss of Longing Throats: Gnaw Their Tongues (Netherlands)(23:46-31:17)
I will wait for this full album. So far the E.P. is doom-y psychedelic fist-pumping, lead-up fun.
Ape Cave: Ape Cave (Portland)(31:55-38:50)
Weight black metal? Sure. And you’re like, can I listen to this anymore. But you have to, because for some reason, the shit will grab you by your pussy lapels and shake you and tell you that you need to fucking chill out.
Saturnalia: False (Minneapolis)(39:34-49:34)
Australian doom that is like, cool and shit.
A: YLVA (Melbourne)(50:21-58:14)
Jamming shit from San Francisco, but this band pretends they aren’t from San Francisco, which now makes a lot of sense because SF SUCKS. I used to love this town, and it ain’t good. It ain’t good. And I don’t think it will ever be good again. Fuck you techies. Fuck you all. You are the lamest pieces of shit. You fucking spoiled brats.
Sign of the Witch: Orchid (SF)(58:57-END)
