This episode begins and ends with a tribute to Ray Manzarek of The Doors, who passed away on May 20th. The influence of Ray and the rest of the Doors can be heard in all sorts of music today, but their influence on goth music is something I hold dear, as they are not only remembered as one of the greatest bands in history, they are also among the first to have their music dubbed "gothic rock." Whatever you like to call what they did, it is both great and eternal, so rest in peace, Ray.

Hot off the presses for this show is an advance track from California's Hyena Motorcade. The song will appear on a forthcoming release later in the year, but they wanted to give everyone an advance taste, which you can revisit here. And if that's not enough, you can check out some of their other material here.

Making their debut on this episode: Greek post-punk act Wonky Doll & the Echo, whose bizarre name shouldn't keep you from checking out their full album, Pleasant Thoughts, which you can find here. Returning to the show this time with a brand new EP is Italian post-punk/goth band Christine Plays Viola, whose Leocadia release can be explored further here.

In the industrial territory, you'll hear more of the new Skinny Puppy album, Weapon. Pick up the limited edition Vinyl version of that one here, or the CD version here. Once again on the heels of the new Skinny Puppy is a track from France's Chrysalide, who are no strangers to the 'Puppy sound whatsoever. In this instance, you might even confuse the two.

Fans of dark ambient will delight in another slice of Kalpamantra's new Apogee compilation (get it free right here), this time from Russian act Cyclotimia, who actually partnered with a US company at one point to have their music sent into space(!).

You'll hear all of that, PLUS: New music from Michael Giacchino's score for Star Trek: Into Darkness, Celebration & fanfare for the upcoming 5th season of The Venture Bros., The latest in the Calabrese Dayglo Necros video saga, More great new US deathrock from Anåsazi and Crimson Scarlet, Tales from my lost weekend in Baltimore at Maryland Deathfest XI, and much more...
