The 'Best of 2013' episode is coming up in just two weeks, which means that this episode is crammed with last-minute additions to the new music realm. Certainly not to be left off the year-end list is the latest from Philadelphia's current goth/deathrock/post-punk heroes, Night Sins, whose 2nd full-length, To London or the Lake, has just seen release.

Meanwhile in Finland, a whole lot of traditional goth/deathrock is springing up as well. Masquerade topped Cvlt Nation's list of the year's best deathrock on the strength of their 2013 demo, from which you'll get a taste on this episode. Also lauded on that list was Spain's Belgrado, who recently issued their 2nd album, Siglo XXI.

For those looking for an Xmas Special this year, there simply wasn't enough new material to out-do last year's gift, so I've re-uploaded the 2012 Xmas Bonus Show. Get it HERE or HERE. Not to be a complete "Bah-Humbugger," though, I have included The Cruxshadows' new Christmas single on this episode, which is available for free (or pay-what-you-want) right HERE.

In the darkwave/electronic realm, you'll hear new material from Waves, the latest from Virginia's one-man project The Purge, alongside further new music from Nashville's own one-man dynamo, Becoming the Devourer. And, all the way from Belarus, you'll get your first taste of Cold In May's latest synthrock release, Dark Season.

In the realm of current dark metal, we'll dip further in to the latest from the much-talked-about new Cult of Fire album मृत्यु का तापसी अनुध्यान (good luck with that one!), before visiting some oft-overlooked modern doom classics, and trying out something from the brand new Thrall album, Aokigahara Jukai. 

All of that, PLUS: Excellent new soundtrack music from Steven Hufsteter and Co.'s "Kiss of the Damned" and Javier Navarrete's "Byzantium" score; New dark ambient sounds from LyciaCaul & Hall of Mirrors, and Allesandro Parisi's Italian Horror-soaked soundscapes; Some sounds from down on Fascination Street; Some classics from the vault; and more.
