It seemed fitting to give the onset of this episode an ethereal feel, settling into the atmosphere at strange rates, as the weather patterns slowly turned their focus to the cold, wet stillness of the oncoming winter. So, after an opening track from Coil, the show begins with an unusual new piece from Kinit Her, taken from their new Hyperion release, courtesy of Pesanta Urfolk.

While atmospheric selections will continue for a bit after that, and pick up towards the end of the show as well, never fear a lack of driving dark rock. Making their debut on this episode is the UK band Carnival Star, whose digital single "Black Rain Down" should sit comfortably with fans of gothic rock's most iconic forefathers. Not to be outdone, Finland's Beastmilk will give you another relentless taste of their widely hailed new album, Climax.

In the modern post-punk realm, you'll hear further new music from Wax Idols' latest album, Discipline & Desire, followed closely by some classic deathrock, leading into some modern, politicaly-driven deathrock from the infamous "Nuke York" band Anasazi, who have released several cassettes and even a flexi single into the underground this year.

In the electronic realm, Nashville's own brand new project Becoming the Devourer makes their debut on this episode with a track from the just-released EP, DecemberHoveringOut (get it here). BTD just did a couple of shows with Ego Likeness, showcasing a sound (and visuals) reminiscent of a post-rock attitude if it were applied to modern electro. Worth a listen, to be sure.

In the realm of fresh EBM, you'll hear a debut from Ukraine's Ginger Snap5, who offer an infectious sort of high-energy electro-industrial on their new Snapped By You album, followed by the closing track from the brand new System Syn album, No Sky To Fall, which has just been released on Metropolis Records.

At the dark metal end of the spectrum, you will hear one of the two new tracks from Ash Borer's new Bloodlands EP, followed by a deeper cut from the latest Monarque album, Lys Noir. Then, closing the show, Amarok's lengthy doom-laden contribution to the just-issued Amarok/Hell Split.

All of that, PLUS: Further explorations of the latest albums from Vaura and Silent Scream; Vault-robbed classics from Thergothon, Skinny Puppy, Swans, and even Japan; an accidental dip into early '80s creeping soundtrack horrors; and more.
