New graphic for Spring 2014

This episode begins on a sad note, marking the passing of Broughty Cole, drummer for the band Lasher Keen. Following a tense, week-long search for his whereabouts after he was reported missing, his body was finally found in the Sacramento River, close to where his abandoned car had been discovered over the weekend. He was only 28. On a better note, the band has dedicated their forthcoming album, Mantic Poetry, Oracular Prophecy, to his memory & spirit -- and if the early mix of "Trembling Dreams" that you'll hear on the way into this episode is any indication, it will be a powerful journey.

Broughty Cole (Lasher Keen) R.I.P.
From there, we move into another new, brooding instrumental from Bella Morte's Andy Deane, who continues to issue new songs, one by one, from his new Small Precious Lights project, which explores dark ambient soundscapes.

On the verge of the release of their new album, Mosaic, Itlay's The Spiritual Bat return with the single "We Are Born, We Live, We Die," which remains true to their old-school goth rock/psychedelic deathrock sound. You can catch a teaser for the album here. Meanwhile, in Canada, the traditional deathrock fires are being stoked by Ottawa's Aube, whose 2013 Demo has been making the rounds online. You'll hear their 'Coffin debut this time around.

In the darkwave realms, you'll get your first taste of Seeming, the new band of former ThouShaltNot collaborators Alex Reed and Aaron Fuleki. Their new album, Madness & Extinction, has just seen release this week. Order it here. We'll also dig a bit deeper into the
darkwave/post-punk sounds of She Past Away, with another taste of their Belirdi Gece album, followed by another song from the new Clan of Xymox album, Matters of Mind, Body, and Spirit.

Industrial/Synth/Wave veteran Gary Numan will play Nashville this coming Monday night @ The Mercy Lounge. In honor of that, you'll hear the title track from his latest album Splinter (Songs from a Broken Mind), backed with one of his earliest instrumentals. It should be a great show.

As we move toward the end of the show, you'll hear a brand new track from Esben and the Witch, streamed from their forthcoming split 12" with Thought Forms. Finally, on the way out, things will take a much heavier turn as you hear side A of the new Hex/Golden Sunshine 7-inch from Nashville's own doom/noise factory Pornography, followed by a black metal offering from the new Sargeist album, Feeding the Crawling Shadows.

All of that, plus: A note of remembrance for the multi-talented Ghostbuster himself, Harold Ramis, following his passing a couple of weeks back; Further exploration of the punk side of the goth/rock fence; More genre-news & tour updates; Deeper current cuts from Theurgist, Double Echo, and Deathcharge; Selections from the vault; and more...
