New Graphic for 2013. Feel free to spread it around.

This first episode of February 2013 begins with a new graphic (above) and a pair of somber acoustic tracks. The first one, "Le Vertige Du Vide (JR)" by ROME, is a stripped-down re-examination of an older song, interpreted in a more personal manner for the close of the recent "Fester" single. Following that, a selection from the latest Unto Ashes CD, Burials Foretold.

Lotus Feed returns to the show with a punchy number from their latest album, So Close... So Far, which sees the band continuing on its post-punk/goth path, but hitting perhaps a bit harder this time. We delve another track deeper into Ulterior's The Bleach Room, which has just emerged on vinyl. You can get that here. Also in the realm of good, solid modern goth, you'll hear another pulsing anthem from the new Grooving in Green album, Stranglehold.

As mentioned previously, I've been on quite the Black Ice kick as of late, so I decided to find out what happened to the band, whose website had grown rather quiet. My digging turned up the fact that several members had resurrected a project called Red Voice Choir, which had run alongside the existence of Black Ice for a time. As it happens, both bands were quite active in 2007, when they each released impressive full albums. In honor of that, you'll hear a "Then, and (also) Then" set, spotlighting what each project was doing at the time.

Continuing with the new releases, you'll take a deeper cut from the World's Greatest Horror Rock Band, Calabrese, who are about to wrap up a brand new video. Sweden's Brotherhood weave goth rock with synth-pop influences on a further cut from ...Turn the Gold to Chrome, while Germany's Aeon Sable ease us into the dark metal portion of the show as they apply a heavier sound to their goth influences on a track from their new Saturn Return album. Finally, a selection from the latest Katatonia album, Dead End Kings, makes it long-overdue debut on this episode.

All of that, plus: Another great damnbient journey from the new Treha Sektori album, some personal 'Coffin classics and underexposed recent releases from the vault, and a spotlight on this weekend's "Days of the Dead" convention happening in Atlanta, Georgia. Among the many great guests are Eerie Von (Danzig/Samhain), Ace Frehley (Kiss), and a nearly full cast reunion from one of the greatest horror films ever made, 1985's "The Return of the Living Dead." See the full guest list and convention details here, and maybe I'll see you there.
