This episode was intentionally launched a few days late, so that it could arrive on April 1st, to hold up the legacy of Rozz Williams on the anniversary of his death. As is the tradition, this episode begins with a tribute set that features many of his musical, experimental, and poetic outlets, including Christian Death, Shadow Project, Daucus Karota, Bloodflag, Premature Ejaculation, Heltir, and the many solo ventures and collaborations he did under his chosen name. This year, I selected deeper cuts and odd versions that are not often heard, although a proper tribute to Rozz cannot begin with out his musical epitaph, "Flowers," which you will find at the top. Always.

New to the show this time is music from Portland's Arctic Flowers, another in a long line of Pacific-Northwestern post-punk/deathrock bands that have helped to carve the new scene that exists in the US right now. You'll hear the title track from their new Weaver album, just before we go a bit deeper into the latest from their Portland neighbors, The Bellicose Minds. This time, you'll get the closing track from their latest LP, The Spine.

We'll also go a bit deeper into the latest release from Denmark's Metro Cult -- which is actually a 7-inch, so we'll call it the flip-side. New Space/Ghost is also available digitally, right here, for free, so grab it while you can.

While we're going back for seconds,  you'll get another taste of Seeming, the new band of erstwhile ThouShaltNot collaborators Alex Reed and Aaron Fuleki. On their new album, Madness & Extinction, they return to an obscure later track from their former band's catalog, giving it a new spin. Check it out, then order it here.

In closing, we'll take a look at the newly re-issued first Velnias album, Sovereign Nocturnal, which has just been given the deluxe treatment by Eisenwald Records. Bask in its 15-minute scope, then pick it up here.

All of that, plus: Further expansion into the current releases from LowCityRain and Beastmilk; Unreleased '80s horror soundtrack work rescued from obscurity; Selections from the darkwave and apocalyptic doom vaults; and more...
