Out ov the Coffin: PODCAST: July 7th, 2011

This week brought another long list of new (dark) entries, which is always a good thing. Early in the show, Sweden's Jeniferever kicked in with a cool mix of post-punk, post-rock and shoegaze, taken from their new album "Silesia." Also hailing from Sweden, we heard from Principe Valiente, who also mix dark indie, post-punk and shoegaze. I wonder if these guys know each other?

The curiously familiar sound of a new track from Snake Dance met my ears this week, evoking strong comparisons to the recently defunct Solemn Novena, although I've not been able to confirm any connection between the two bands... yet. Fans of the more traditional UK goth rock sound will be quite pleased, though -- as they will with the latest from the UK's  Ulterior. If comparisons to The Mission, The Cult, and The Sisters of Mercy make your ears perk-up, I encourage you to grab their new "Wild in Wildlife" CD right now. It's worth the effort.

Continuing in the new wave of post-punk bands, we also heard more new material from Sweden's The Exploding Boy. Either Sweden is churning out an unusual quantity of cool bands right now, or I'm biased due to my own (partial) Swedish heritage. Either way, The Exploding Boy's "The Black Album" is worth checking out, too. Not to be outdone, Germany's Fliehende Stürme gave us more new music from their new "Warten auf Raketen" disc.

In the electronic/industrial realm, Germany's Amnistia gave us a taste of their latest one, "Egotrap," and we went ever deeper into the new Necro Facility disc, "Wintermute." Want to guess where they're from? Yep... Sweden. Jeez!

Finally, in the dark metal portion of the show, we heard from 40 Watt Sun, which features 3 members of one of the most soul-baring & moving traditional doom bands, Warning. Their brand new album is called "The Inside Room."

So, without further ado, here is the podcast of the show:
