Nashville has been lucky enough to host some great live shows in the last week. Most recently, I had the distinct pleasure of seeing Chelsea Wolfe, performing as a headliner on the eve of a string of dates opening for Queens of the Stone Age -- I may not be a fan of QOTSA, but they have chosen some great openers recently. I encourage anyone in the path of Ms. Wolfe's tour plans to catch her live show, and in honor of that recommendation, I've included one of her older tracks on this episode.

This past weekend, I was also able to catch the much-talked-about Youth Code, when they came through town with AFI. Now, that crowd wasn't really sure what to make of a traditional EBM/industrial act, but I applaud AFI, too, for taking hungry young bands of different styles on the road and keeping things fresh. You'll hear a track from the new self-titled Youth Code record on this episode as well.

Speaking of classic industrial sounds, I take a stroll down that lane of memory on this episode, revisiting some of the '90s sounds that bolstered my interest in the genre. Not to be outdone by a retro-trip, though, you'll get a taste of the new Rabia Sorda album, Hotel Suicide, which experiments with new ways of moving people on the dance floor, while retaining the punch that Erk Aicrag is known for delivering behind the microphone with his main band, Hocico.

Meanwhile, in the realm of goth rock & darkwave, I'll unearth some of the late '90s gems that frequented this show's earliest playlists. Going a step further back than that, you'll also get a taste of the two new Sacred Bones Records releases that came out last week: Sanctuary: The complete Discography of cult anarcho-punk/deathrock act Vex, and the newly-compiled "Killed By Deathrock" LP, which highlights a collection of otherwise-forgotten deathrock and post-punk bands from the '80s, such as New Jersey's own Screaming for Emily, whom I chose to feature this time.

In this episode's last moments, as things turn from strange to stranger, Chicago's I Shalt Become will lead you away with a selection from their latest abstract black metal experiment, Louisiana Voodoo.

All of that, PLUS: Deeper cuts from the new Beastmilk and LowCityRain albums; The 'Coffin debut of Uruguay's first goth band, RRRRRRR; A lifting of the veil to revisit the oft-overlooked Fear of God; Some obscure 1970s necrophilia-cult soundtrack music; and much, much more.
