PODCAST: October 19th, 2012 THE HALLOWEEN SPECIAL 2012!

Here it is! This year's "Out ov the Coffin" Halloween Special, clocking in at its longest running time yet -- just over four hours! My honorary "co-ghost" for this year is Samhain (pictured above), who may have been a minor character from "The Real Ghostbusters" cartoon in the '80s, but his influence can be heard all across this episode.

What to expect in your treat bag this time? A generous handful of traditional Halloween classicks, recently deceased newcomers to the Halloween circuit, plenty of spooky selections from the very back on the 'Coffin's vaults, bloody splashes of film dialogue, soundtracks, movie trailers, old-time radio spots, and even some brand new entries for this episode from Bella Morte and Velvet Acid Christ. PLUS, in addition to a 3-hour traditional Halloween special, I've included a "hair-rasing" bonus hour at the end.

The sets are divided according to style, with a Goth set, a Deathrock/Horror Rock set, an Industrial/Darkwave set, a Dark Metal set, and finally, the bonus '80s "Scare" Metal salute. Yes, a Halloween-themed look back at classic '80s horror, as seen through the eyes of a pre-teen, hair-metal-obsessed Ichabod. I put that one at the end so some of you could skip it -- but why would you want to? It's the trick to balance all of those treats.

The full playlist is below. It's very detailed, listing all of the various dialogue samples, movie trailers, songs, and other sounds -- with links! The talk breaks are marked, too.

Only two more weeks remain until the annual "Out ov the Coffin" Halloween Special hits the internet. Mark your calendars for October 19th to make sure you "grave" the date. In the meantime, please enjoy this brand new episode, featuring a host of new talent and further glimpses into the latest goth, post-punk, industrial, and dark metal releases.

From the UK, this episode sees the debut of Red Sun Revival, a band quite reminiscent of Fields of the Nephilim. Of course, their album, Running from the Dawn, was produced by Steve Carey of The Eden House -- which contains members of FOTN -- so that makes sense. Meanwhile, Canada's The Silence Industry have returned with The Maw of Sleep (stream it here), once again bringing noticeably aggressive drumming to an atmospheric goth rock landscape that would otherwise be reminiscent of older Bella Morte or Machinegun Symphony.

Also new to the show this time: Belgrado, out of Barcelona Spain, whose high-energy approach to post-punk/deathrock is sure to please fans of Xmal Deutschland, older Killing Joke, or New Days Delay. Their self-titled debut can be heard (and acquired for free) right here. And for the dark metal fans, Minneapolis, Minnesota's False make their debut on the show with their track from the just-released Barghest/False split LP through Gilead Media. Stream it here; order it here.

Returning with deeper cuts into their latest releases on this show are: Philadelphia's Night Sins who give us another taste of their New Grave EP (available for free here); an impressively catchy new song from The Ludovico Technique's Some Things Are Beyond Therapy, which is quickly shaping up to be among my favorite industrial releases of the year; and Velvet Acid Christ, who have released a second brand new video from their new CD, Maldire, which I will just go ahead and embed here:




All of that, PLUS: We'll reach way back for some mid-'70s roots selections, spend a couple of songs in the Autumnal fields of mid '90s gothic doom, revisit some obscurities from the vaults, and float for a moment in several atmospheric stops along the way.
