Another Bonus podcast? Yes, indeed. The regular September episode of "Out ov the Coffin" will appear some time next week, but for now, please enjoy this podcast version of the Out ov the Coffin: Compilation for the Dead 2014.

"Compilation for the Dead," you say? Allow me to explain: Back in 2007, after attending Dragon Con for a couple of years, I really liked the idea of "convention exclusives" -- souvenirs that people could only get their hands on when they came to an event in person -- so I decided to make one of my own, and this series was born. This 2014 comp is the 8th installment so far.

Each year, I choose just under 80 minutes of new and current music to represent both my podcast and the current state of the goth & dark music scene. I then hand-craft 100 physical copies, and give them away to people that come to the goth-related panels that I moderate*. Once those are gone, I upload the mix as a podcast, so everyone else can hear it, too.

This year, I had the distinct pleasure of including two songs that had never-before appeared on CD: Gild the Mourn's "Shade," and one of my favorites from the new crop of singles from The Last Dance, "Scars." Those two join an impressive collection of current sounds that, to me, speak volumes for the health of this genre.

For those who just found out about this podcast at Dragon Con this year, I welcome you aboard. This is a special recap, but the next regular (monthly), brand new episode will launch next week, featuring even more great new music -- alongside classics, other current dark sounds, and even some of the selections that had to be cut from this compilation in order to fit on one disc.

In the meantime, if you're new to this podcast, I encourage you to check out some of the previous episodes (here or here), and to follow the show on Facebook.
