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

0:25-5:44
SPIRE (AU)
Hymn III
— Textural black metal slowed down to moody and reflective. The vocalist adds multiple dimensions with low growls, high shrieks, chanting and an overall thundering performance.

7:03-13:55
SENYAWA (Indonesia)
Istana
— Written-up by the NYT, Senyawa is an incredible part of the huge Indonesian experimental scene with a wild ride on homemade instrumentation. They offered graphics and audio files out to whoever wanted it, asking different labels to create mixes to appeal to their local region. 44 labels took them up on it. This one is from a British label.

14:39-21:07
SUFFERING HOUR (MN)
Obscuration
— Another explosive black metal band playing with death muscularity and lower-paced meditative atmospheric with a seething, gravelly vocalist.

21:39-23:38
GRAVESEND (NYC)
Ashen Piles Of The Incinerated
— Intensity ramps up through this album, gritty death, atmospheric grind and punk experimenting with density, aggression and mood.

24:21-29:23
HEAVE BLOOD AND DIE (Norway)
Post People
— The band name doesn’t necessarily match the chill post-punk 70’s influenced krautrock political band. Fantastic album.

29:39-32:26
SOCIOCLAST (San Jose)
Concrete and Steel
— Monstrous groove grind with blistering death and dread.

32:47-37:18
DEAD EXALTATION (India)
The Transformation
— Indian technicality puts this away with a blast of death and prog and satisfying riffs.

37:36-45:15
LIQUIFY (WA)
Quest for Eternity
— Jamming psychedelic brain candy that lets the brain just breathe. Lovely.

46:04-50:12
DEIQUISITOR (Denmark)
Below the frozen Tundra
— Demonic vocals claws you while burying you alive with a raw bleak death.

50:30-55:26
SARIN (CAN)
Reckoner
— Meditative stoner post-metal with a focus on unique instrumentals; another decompressive album.

55:45-END
MOTORAMA (Russia)
Up
— Sweet, bubbly new wave from one of my faves in this genre.

0:25-7:42
AD NAUSEAM (Italy)
Inexorably Ousted Sente
— Frenetic black and pummeling, technical death hurtling against each other, creating a universe of density, breaking into rippling, meandering, brain melting compositions.

8:51-12:51
EMPTINESS (Belgium)
On n'en finit pas
— A bleak, unrefined goth mixed with some traditional melodic bass and synth, but thrown off-kilter by evil vocals and nothing sweet.

13:18-18:21
HUMANITY’S LAST BREATH (Sweden)
Tide
— Cinematic and horror experimental deathcore that explodes out of the traditional djent beat and muscular vocal.

18:46-22:14
EVIL (Japan)
閻魔天 Enmaten
— Chomping old school black metal speed with technical badass rock and roll guitar.

22:55-30:27
DSKNT (Swiss)
Deconvolution Jψ [Part I]
— A cavernous, disorienting black metal with a hurricane of satisfying riffs that erupt out of nowhere.

30:51-36:43
CAEDES CRUENTA (Greece)
From the Darkest Paths of Golgotha
— Majestic Greek black metal with desperate raw vocals and gothy synth work.

37:17-40:17
INTELLECT DEVOURER (AU) (09/2020)
Demons of the Skull
— Released last year. A member from StarGazer, but very different. Guitar shredding technical death with changes to lurching slow pace.

40:34-44:19
REVULSION (Finland)
Unravel
— First full length after 10 years. Throaty death with some Finnish mood.

45:14-50:01
UNCERTAINTY PRINCIPLE (UK)
Stationary State
— Reimagined weirdo staticky drone meditation.

50:34-END
ALKERDEEL (Belgium)
Trok
— Bludgeoned.

0:25-4:17
PORTRAYAL OF GUILT (Austin)
Masochistic Oath
— Broken shards of bleak hardcore mixed with a demonic vocalist and grind, electronic, melodic pop.

5:49-17:05
THE RUINS OF BEVERAST (Germany)
The Tundra Shines
— One of my favorite metal bands, whose 2017 album made it to my top 20 of the last 20 years. Another vivid, moody, psychedelic, tribalistic black metal journey with surprising clean vocals that cut through. Touching. Massive.

17:34-22:31
EXIMPERITUSERQETHHZEBIBŠIPTUGAKKATHŠULWELIARZAXUŁUM (Belarus)
Tahâdu
— Anonymous group takes you on a weird, crazed death ride with a moody, rich doom. Unexpected.

23:00-27:20
STARGAZER (AU)
Star Vassal
— Indulgent, weird, proggy death with a rumbling and often theatrical singer, that culminates into kickass riffs.

28:00-36:44
THERMOHALINE (Argentina/Brazil/Belgium)
Sirens
— A debut that nails you to the wall with intensity, and changes shapes to droning guitars, industrial and keyboard effects.

37:08-40:27
ALTERED DEAD (CAN)
Prosodemic Realms
— Throat-clenched vocals within a hurricane of bleak death, slowed down to headbang-worthy sinister doom when needed.

41:02-47:26
TRIBULATION (Sweden)
The Wilderness
— Take the time and meld with this fantasy metal with vampiric blood and a storm of heavy metal and rising melody. Excellent.

48:18-54:27
AETHYRICK (Finland)
Flesh Once Divided
— Frosty massive black metal that often slows to dramatic vibrant melody.

54:50-END
THE SUN CAME UP UPON THE LEFT (Portland)
A Coward’s Expression of Doubt
— A fantastic split with moody, gorgeous acoustic and gothic melodies.
