Field recordings of an autopsy, a rotting corpse, and an electric chair execution, as well as cult leader monologs, trance babblings, lots of deep dark ambient, and a truly memorable ending.

Not much metal in this one. I highly recommend checking out Cinder Well's album in full. Ends with 30+ minutes of absolute mayhem while Paul Giamatti reads A Scanner Darkly.

This is a pretty heavy & dark episode with tons of collaging (there's 4 songs going at once for part of "Blood Rite") but ends on a light note with some simultaneous Jobin/Atkinson action and a couple 80s New Age dreams.

Got some excellent new metal, some excellent new weird shit, new Shirley Collins (!!!), Korean religious rituals, a poem about Harriet Tubman, strange 70s spoken word stuff, an excerpt from Annie Jacobsen's book Surprise, Kill, Vanish (which sounds especially good paired with both Christopher Elmore & Sunrot), and plenty more.

It's been a long time since I've been as obsessed with a record as I am with Lankum's The Livelong Day from last year. I just found out about it thanks to this Shirley Collins interview (they're her new favorite band too). I've listened to nothing but that record all day every day for the past week. There's lots of other great stuff here too but there's a reason I bookended the episode with two tracks fr...

The 3 metal songs are from 3 of the best metal records this year. The AWE track is from the upcoming final AWE record. Thankfully AW will still be active on his own. Backxwash is some phenomenal new furious horrorcore that I didn't know I needed. And I am way psyched that there's not one but TWO new Revolutionary Army records.

Goddamn this world is fucked. For countless reasons, I've been absent from this site and my A Thick Mist radio show. I'm rusty. Hardly experimenting here. Nothing too weird. The main difference though is there's no talk breaks.

This episode is pretty cool with new Jeremy Bible (!!!!), the debut from Apologist, some classic Rev. Gary Davis, Aurora Borealis recordings, Indian chants, Tolowa dances, and some new killer doom out of Boston by Sea.

Did you know there's a song with lyrics written/sung in Black Speech, the language spoken by the Nazgûl in Lord of the Rings? Because that's fucking awesome. Also, the short-lived closing piece of martial industrial alongside Native American chants is pretty excellent imo.

Lots of long songs and maybe the first time ever there's no American folk/blues to be found. Even so, there's Japanese flutes, génocidaire trial recordings, Indian ragas, nondescript LSD instructions, Finnish doom, Italian dark ambient, and readings from the Tibetan Book of the Dead.
