PODCAST: March 8th, 2012

This show starts with a nod and a birthday wish to Gary Numan, who turned 54 yesterday. To demonstrate how the man still has it after all these years, I chose to play the (almost) title-track to his latest release, Dead Son Rising on the way in.

Having just returned from a trip to Chicago that centered largely around the Polish section of town, it seemed curiously well-timed that two Polish bands would happen to turn up with new releases for this episode. First-up is Deathcamp Project, who recently returned with the Painthings album, filled with harder edged Goth Rock. Then, you'll hear the more coldwave/deathrock sound of Cabaret Grey, whose new EP, Stirring, can be streamed HERE.

Also new to the show this week is yet another fresh single from Italy's Chemical Waves. "Murders TV" is a rhythmic, hypnotic musical track, verbalized only by the social observations of a serial killer. For me, it's reminiscent of The Cure's track "Pornography," with some of the atmosphere last heard from cult favorites, The God Machine. You can download the single for free HERE.

In the dark ambient/industrial realm, you'll here a new entry from Russia's Lamia Vox, as well as a new track from Sweden's Atrium Carceri. In the dark metal portion of the show, we'll delve deeper into Sorrow and Extinction, the brand new album from Pallbearer, whose sense of doom is currently winning reviewers over around the world.

Plus: Great moments in Italian Horror Music, George Romero's continuing influence on modern bands, the great 'King' of insomnia's love of black and fright films, regional events to check out, and loads of other current and classic dark music.
