As we barrel towards the end of the year, bands keep releasing great music, and I double my efforts to capture it all. A lot of writers and bloggers throw their best-of lists out in mid-November, which I feel shafts a good number of great releases; hence, The "Out ov the Coffin: Best ov 2012" show will come out on the first Friday in January instead. Look for that, as well as a revamped edition of the "Out ov the Coffin Xmas Bonus," coming just in time to re-gift it to somebody special.

As stated above, great albums are still coming out as we speak, so this episode begins with something from the brand new Ulterior album, The Bleach Room. They put out one of the best albums of last year, and now they've already punched me right in the face with one of my favorite songs of this year, so I put it right at the top of the show. Order the album here. And now.

Two other much-talked-about bands return on this episode as well. O.Children are back with Apnea, from which you'll hear the song that has thus far grabbed my attention hardest; and fellow English act Bat For Lashes have returned with The Haunted Man, from which I've selected a somber track befitting the season.

We'll hear from Sweden's Brotherhood, who have just issued a free single for their cover of Depeche Mode's Photographic (get it here); as well as ROME, with the title track from their new EP Fester, which also appears on their new album, Hell Money (order that here). We'll also go a cut deeper into The Deadfly Ensemble's latest collection of avant-deathrock, An Instructional Guide for Aspiring Arsonists, which can be ordered here.

Leaning into the unconventional side of the electronic spectrum, both with their own take on modern neo-classical music, you'll hear new entries from Chicago's Saltillo, taken from their Monocyte album, and Austria's Soap & Skin, from their latest album, Narrow.

In the dark metal portion of the show, you'll hear more brand new tracks from: Portland's Atriarch, from their much-applauded Ritual of Passing (get it here); Neurosis, from their latest album Honor Found in Decay; and Ash Borer, taken from their Cold of Ages album (get it here).

Also on this episode: More new music from Dead Can Dance; cryptic, unnamed fresh ambient music; a nod to the would-be birthday of Jim Morrison; some should-be classics from the vault; and Middle Earth's greatest band, Summoning, helps celebrate the release of the first Hobbit film.

p.s. As mentioned on the show, here's a link to the event page for +SALVATION+ vs. The Apocalypse, Nashville's Gothic/Industrial New Year's Eve event. I'll be DJing there, so if you're in the area, join us.
