PODCAST: September 8th, 2011

It's hard to believe it's been two weeks since the last episode, but that's the type of time-warping one should expect from almost a week spent at Dragon*Con. Not only did I survive the Con, but I have returned with an armload of new music and some cool stories
to share. So, here's what this show has to offer:

On the topic of D*C-related acts, you'll hear a variation on the new single from The Cruxshadows on this show, which is entitled "Valkyrie." It was, as the tradition now holds, released at Dragon*Con this year, complete with two other new tracks and a couple of different versions. From what I understand, it will be available for purchase (to the rest of the world) soon...

You'll also hear new music from Sapphire Solace, the new project featuring Rick Joyce of The Last Dance and vocalist Velvet Shadow, who did a last minute live performance at Dragon*Con this year on the concourse stage, playing selections from their new album "Shadow Stories."

Also appearing on panels at the Con this year, although not performing live, were the members of Brighter Fires, the band formed by (founding Bella Morte members) Andy Deane and Gopal Metro. Their song, "Glorious," was included on the "Out ov the Coffin" sampler CD that was handed out at the Con this year, and you'll also hear its broadcast premiere on this episode. As mentioned in the show, you can pre-order their new album for only $2.99 right here, prior to its Halloween release date.

Speaking of Bella Morte, you'll hear a great new track from The Gothsicles, whose new album "Industrialites & Magic" actually features a song that's all about wearing a Star Trek uniform while watching (Bella Morte's infamous guitarist) Tony Lechmanski sleep. AS ONE DOES, you know? Don't even try to tell me you haven't tried it.

Also new to the show this week: Fresh darkwave/industrial from Germany's Deied, whose new album is called "Tales from the Sodenliah," an advance cut from the new Ladytron album, "Gravity the Seducer," and some nice minimal ambience from the UK's Ainm, whose album "Zero Spring" has just been released.

Rounding out the show in the heavier department, you'll hear new material from France's Glorior Belli, who recently signed with Metal Blade Records. Finally, I am able to confirm the great news I mentioned last night: California death/doom act, Morgion, has, in fact, reformed (with the "Solinari" line-up) in order to play the next Maryland Deathfest. Read all about it here.
