For this episode, I spent a good deal of time in the vaults, collecting new sounds from forgotten sources, to go along with the sounds of this episode's new releases. There are many seamless matches to behold, if you ask me. The show begins with Lycia doing a Joy Division cover, taken from a rare tribute entitled Ceremonial, and many other obscurities are dropped in along the way.

Not to concentrate on obscurities, though. This weekend in Nashville, Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds will be playing, so the first full set begins with one of my favorite live tracks, and one of their best-known hymns, done in a memorably aggressive manner. You can see the band's full tour dates here, to see if you're lucky enough.

One of my most anticipated releases of this year has been the physical version of The Night Watch EP, from Chicago's The Bellwether Syndicate. This new band combines the talents and taste of William Faith (Faith and the Muse, Christian Death, etc.) and DJ Scary Lady Sarah, among others, to emerge with a solid new face for post-punk/gothic rock, with a side of shoegaze. It was hard to pick which song to share first, but the lead track, "All Fire," is pure anthem, so prepare yourself to sing along.

Also new to the show are further cuts from the latest Grooving in Green album, Stranglehold, and the new Red Sun Revival album, Running From the Dawn. Both of these English acts provide updates to traditional goth rock sounds, and fly the proverbial flag with vigor. Speaking of vigor, New York City's Anasazi make their debut on this episode, with a dose of pure deathrock adrenaline, taken from their new Attic Noise EP.

In the industrial realm, you'll new music from Italian EBM/Industrial forefathers Pankow's latest, Shun the Cure They Most Desire, along with a taste of the newly reissued double-disc collection of cEvin Key & Dwayne Goettel's recordings as Doubting Thomas, entitled Infidel. Both are new from the Metropolis Records label.

Also from the Metropolis roster, I throw the spotlight on God Module's current tour with The Ludovico Technique, Mordacious, and Frontal Boundary, which will roll through Nashville next week, but you can see the full tour dates here to find the show nearest you. On the other side of the roster, Psyclon Nine's Nero Bellum makes a guest appearance on a new track from Dawn of Ashes, on the verge of both bands releasing new albums this year.

All of that, PLUS: Brian Tyler's score from the new Don Coscarelli film, "John Dies at the End;" more new sounds from Finland's Beastmilk; the overdue introduction of Portland's The Estranged to the show; more unexpected soundtrack selections, and further reaches into the deathrock, post-punk, and odd-music vaults.
