Having just returned from a week in California, seeing ROME twice and having a generally great time, this episode is filled with music I picked up in my travels, and stories gathered along the way.

is the type of band that I was unsure I would ever get to see live, so it was quite a privilege to be able to see them play two nights in a row. The first show, in Riverside California, was held at a very small, DIY venue that served as a bookshop and resource center by day. While this didn't provide much in the way of atmosphere or sound/lighting, it did give the people who made the trek a unique opportunity to meet the band on casual terms.

The following night in Hollywood, ROME shared the stage with Unwoman at Bar Sinister. Other than the thumping dance beats that were bleeding over from the other end of the club, this
 was the full-fledged show we'd all waited and traveled long to see. The ROME sets on both nights were filled with songs from across the band's catalogue, one of which is featured on this episode, along with a track from Unwoman, since all of these sounds are still so fresh in my mind.

Also fresh in my mind: "The Dark Knight Rises." I saw it in IMAX when I returned, absolutely loved it, and immediately ran out to buy Hans Zimmer's soundtrack -- a few selections from which can be heard on this episode. I have to hand it to the man for setting new trends in film music with his Batman scores. Great stuff. And if you get the physical CD, it comes with a drop card that gives you access to download some additional songs, too.

On the industrial/ebm side of the fence, this episode features new music from Germany's Heimataerde, taken from their new album Gottgleich; a newly revamped version of one of the earliest songs from South Africa's Acretongue; and a further selection from disKonnekt, the latest album from Canada's Decoded Feedback.

This episode also features a horror rock set that unleashes another new song from Calabrese, alongside a classick from Alice Cooper -- both of whom will be appearing at this year's Dragon*Con in Atlanta, although it is unclear whether Alice will be performing live at the convention, or appearing solely as a guest. Either way, it shall be an honor to have him aboard. In further Dragon*Con news, our friends in Ego Likeness have just been added to the line-up as well.

In addition to all of the above, this episode also features: Additional new entries from Kiss the Anus of a Black Cat and Anhedonist, fresh experimental sounds from LPF12, more great soundtrack work, several obscurities pulled from the vault, and much, much more.
