PODCAST: September 2017 Episode [Compilation for the Dead 2017]

[STREAM this episode (on Mixcloud)]
(or scroll to the bottom to stream it here)


Tis the season for specials, and this special episode is the podcast version of the Out ov the Coffin: Compilation for the Dead 2017. What's that? Well, the "Compilation for the Dead" is actually a mixtape-style version of the podcast, so the snake is eating its tail again here.

I started the "Compilation for the Dead" series back in 2007, after attending Dragon Con for a couple of years, where I would consistently have conversations about the state of "goth" music, the health of "the scene," and if there were any good bands still putting music out these days. My answer to the last question was always an emphatic "yes, damn it!," but in order to put my money where my mouth was, I decided to actually create proof.

"I made you a mixtape...." See? Not creepy at all! Right?

So, each year I choose just under 80 minutes of strictly new and current music to represent this podcast, my DJing style, and, most importantly, the current state of the goth & dark music scene as I see it.

For those who just found out about "Out ov the Coffin" from me at Dragon Con this year, I welcome you aboard. New, "regular" episodes happen once a month, featuring even more great new music -- but alongside classics from the vault, episodic themes, and other current dark sounds from the realms of post-punk, deathrock, darkwave, goth, industrial, film scores, dark metal, and more. The next one will be October's much-anticipated Halloween Special, in fact, so look for that one in the corpse -- er, course -- of the next month...

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.

Thanks,
Ichabod

EPISODE NOTES & HIGHLIGHTS: 

This episode arrives late in the month, admittedly, but it's packed with new music that would not have made the cut otherwise, including several bands played in this episode's extended spotlight on Dragon Con 2017. If you're attending the convention, think of it as a primer for the weekend's madness. If not, enjoy all the brand new music that the associated acts are releasing for the occasion -- and the many other new things coming at you on this August 2017 edition of "Out ov the Coffin."

We begin with an almost-obligatory nod to last week's eclipse, which had Nashville in its path of totality, and which caused the enduring refrain of "the sky's gone out!", from the Bauhaus classic "Exquisite Corpse," to be lodged in my head all week. From there, speaking of pointing at the heavens, we slid into an instrumental from the new Drab Majesty album, in a nod to their upcoming tour, which will hit Nashville on September 16th.

The first full set begins with new music from Fotocrime, a US gothic rock band composed of former members of much heavier acts like Coliseum. Their debut EP is called Always Hell, and they'll also be performing live in Nashville soon, this time at Fascination Street on September 23rd, during a huge month for shows and tours. The set continues with nothing but new music, offering new post-punk/goth from Vessel's Courting You, followed by the difficult-to-peg approach of Germany's Rope Sect. The band's new Personae Ingratae album will likely appeal to fans of modern acts like Beastmilk.

San Francisco's The Tunnel makes their debut next, with a sound that merges bay-area deathrock with classic '90s noise rock influences. The set rounds out with a track from the new Pawns LP, The Gallows, continuing to build Mass 
Media Records' contributions to the state of modern deathrock. 

DRAGON CON 2017:

The next two sets form a spotlight on Dragon Con 2017, which takes place in Atlanta, Georgia across multiple host hotels on Labor Weekend (August 31st - September 4th). If you've never been, imagine 80,000 fans of sci-fi, fantasy, horror, music, gaming, comics, film, toys, puppets, anime, cosplay, and anything else you can be far too into, coming together in one location to celebrate those things with the people that make them. AND, they book a lot of cool goth/industrial-related bands, hence the music in these sets.

Disclaimer: Yes, I volunteer and serve as the Assistant Director for Dragon Con's Horror Track, but they are not connected with this podcast in any way. That said, if you're coming to the convention, come by the Horror Track room (Westin Peachtree 1-2, on the 8th floor) and say hello. Also, catch me moderating these panels:

"Goth: The Heart of Darkness"
Friday, 5:30pm, Westin Peachtree 1-2
Panelists: Aurelio Voltaire, Cruxshadows, Bella Morte, Ego Likeness, The Long Losts, Ted Naifeh.

"Nightmare on Elm Street: Dream Warriors Anniversary Panel"
Sunday, 4:00pm, Westin Peachtree 1-2
Fan discussion of the cult-classic film, in honor of its 30th anniversary this year.

(Download the Dragon Con 2017 app to see the full list of panels for the Horror Track and all the others, too!).

With that said, the first set of bands that will be playing Dragon Con this year begins with more new music from Bella Morte, whose new Year of the Ghost sees the band delving further into its goth-rock and post-punk roots. Frontman Andy Deane's synthwave project The Rain Within follows next, leading into music from the forthcoming Cruxshadows album, Astromythology, which will be released at the convention this year (they will play the Hyatt on late Sunday night, same as last year). Steven Archer will also be pulling double duty on this year's bill, playing multiple sets with his tribal electronica project Stoneburner, in addition to his main band, Ego Likeness. Both acts will play together on Thursday night (along with Bella Morte) in the Hyatt's Centennial Ballroom. The Rain Within will have multiple shows on the concourse. 

The second all-Dragon-Con set begins with a lowkey number from Aurelio Voltaire's brand new album, Heart-Shaped Wound. A collection of serious songs this time around, the album gathers the typically comical Voltaire's thoughts on a particularly devastating break-up. American Murder Song, a new musical project featuring Terrance Zdunich (Repo: The Genetic Opera), makes their debut next, showcasing a dark Americana sound, rife with murder ballads. From another dark American wing comes music from New York's The Long Losts, a newcomer to Dragon Con this time, who will surely add some Halloween spice to the mix. The set rounds out with brand new music from Horror track familiars Valentine Wolfe, taken from their The Elegiac Repose album. 

Note: Voltaire will be performing several times throughout the convention, as will Valentine Wolfe and The Long Losts, but you can catch them all together (along with friends like The Nathaniel Johnstone Band and This Way to the Egress) at Voltaire's Damnation Cabaret event on Thursday night in the Marriott's Atrium Ballroom. American Murder Sing will perform late Sunday (early Monday) at midnight, just before the Cruxshadows in the Hyatt. 

Back to the music at hand, the dark metal section of the show begins with new music from Atriarch, taken from their Dead as Truth album, which I decided to follow with a couple of '90s black metal gems from the vault. Hades tears in first with a track from their 1997 classic The Dawn of the Dying Sun, stepping out of the way for some Necromantia, keeping the bass assault going with the opening track of their 1995 classic, Scarlet Evil Witching Black. We the take a turn towards the extremes of classical with a further new cut into the latest from France's Les Chants du Hasard, before closing the set with one more vault-classic, this time from Ireland's Primordial. The show ultimately closes with some ritual dark ambient from the new Shibalba LP, Psychostasis - Death of Khat.

All of that, PLUS: A brief nod to the memory of director Tobe Hooper (Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Lifeforce, Poltergiest), who passed away this week (watch for a better tribute in October); selections from the '80s-nerd and '90s-metal vaults; and more!

EPISODE NOTES & HIGHLIGHTS: 

As mandated by the dreaded, wet heat of the south (and travel), this show has been slow to emerge, but here it is: The July 2017 edition of "Out ov the Coffin." We begin this month with a special tribute to the life and work of legendary film maker, George A. Romero (February 4, 1940 – July 16, 2017), who died last week at the age of 77. Few need to be reminded that Romero is the father of the zombie genre as we know it, but he gave us more than just the living dead, so the opening set attempts to balance songs and sounds from, and about, his well-known work (Night of the Living Dead, Dawn of the Dead) with something less often praised (1978's Martin). Rest in peace, George, and thank you for all you accomplished.

George Romero and I in 2008.
Following that introduction, the show moves into a long list of new music, starting with a catchy new single from rising UK post-punk act Chain of Flowers, which is followed quickly with more new post-punk from Portland's Spirit Host, taken from their new Howl album. On the verge of both a new album AND a US tour with Aurelio VoltaireBella Morte jumps in next with a b-side from their latest maxi-single, One Bright Soul In This Emptiness, which also leans more to the post-punk side of the fence. Dipping back to last year for an overlooked item, we next hear from Italy's European Ghost, before getting a taste of Oakland's Fearing, whose A Life of None strikes a somber tone next to the former's more upbeat post-punk approach. Mummy Calls is the last stop of the set, included here to honor the 30th anniversary of the 1987 summer vampire film classic, "The Lost Boys." 

The second set springs (back) to life with some further new deathrock sounds from Chile's Diavol Strâin, taken from their Demonio EP.  Keeping in the deathrock vein, we then hear a new single from multi-continental act Air Hunger, which leads into a classic moment from Fields of the Nephilim before sliding into a lo-fi track from Horror Vacui's 2017 flexi, Die Schwarzen Keller Session. We then hear a closely-related pair of songs from members of Germany's Bloody Dead and Sexy: First, a taste of two of the members' more low-key side-project, Psi Club, then a previously unreleased track taken from the full band's new retrospective collection, Crucifixion Please!.

The third set explores more synth and electronic territory, starting with a new song from Skinny Puppy-and-Legendary Pink Dots-collaboration The Tear Garden's The Brown Acid Caveat. A double-shot of new music from right here in Nashville comes next, first from FIRES, who have taken the unusual step of releasing their remix collection ahead of their debut album, then from relative newcomers Other Voices, who take a soulful approach to their new wave/post-punk sound, not unlike Krovi (with whom they share a member). We then hear a debut from Michigan's Osseovs, whose lo-fi darkwave might appeal to fans who already miss Tollund Men. Finally, the set concludes with a classic from Belfegore's self-titled 1984 album.

The dark metal section of the show begins in a relatively non-metal fashion, with new music from France's Les Chants du Hasard, whose black-metal-esque style is crafted without the use of guitars, bass, or drums, opting instead for classical instrumentation. We then get another taste of Seattle's Isenordal, diving deeper into their Shores of Mourning cassette, before getting another great taste of Light of the Morning Star's Nocta LP. The set rounds out with new music from Ides of Gemini's seemingly deathrock-infused new LP, Women, before the whole show eventually concludes with an overlooked new, and much heavier, track from Spectral Apparition's 2016 Manifestation EP. 


All of that, PLUS: Music from the new Castlevania animated series by Trevor Morris; Further new soundtrack work from Jim Williams' "Raw" score; Fresh dark ambient from Of Earth and Sun; selections from the horror punk, darkwave, and goth vaults; and more!

EPISODE NOTES & HIGHLIGHTS: 

Welcome to the June 2017 episode of "Out ov the Coffin." After spending some time in the music vaults in the last week, this one begins with a nearly-forgotten piece from what I imagine is a now-defunct Portland band called Sumerland, before sliding into one of two new dark ambient tracks taken from a recent compilation by Kalpamatra, entitled, "The Echoing Black." The German project Phelios decorates the first talk-break of the show.

Lest you should think that we're going to wallow in muted ambience and somber waves all night, the first full set kicks in with some fast and fresh goth/deathrock from Lock Howl, delivering a first taste of their new Pareidolia album. Following quickly is new music from Finland's The Flatfield, from their Manie Sans Délire album. We then (finally) dip back to last year's Swarm LP, from Brooklyn's Bambara, who proudly wear their Nick Cave/Birthday Party influences where we can all admire them. The set rounds out with three selections from the post-punk vaults, including one of the earliest recordings of Atlanta's Entertainment, a personal favorite from New Model Army (later famously covered by Sepultura), and the recently re-appreciated Red Temple Spirits

The second full set begins with a deeper and more electronic cut from the new Clan of Xymox album, Days of Black, before celebrating the recently-reissued majesty of The Great Annihilator-era Swans. A reminder of how great Shadow Age's Silaluk 7-inch was comes next, to whet your appetite for their forthcoming new material. We then dip into the '80s vaults for some overlooked Minimal Compact, before settling in for a tale from the new collaboration from 
Amanda Palmer & Edward Ka-Spel. The album, entitled I Can Spin a Rainbow, sees the unexpected duo trading vocals on what Ka-spel fans will recognize as his signature style of musical storytelling. Finally, the set concludes with the pleasant surprise of new music from France's Hante., taken from the just-released darkwave opus, Between Hope & Danger

Set three begins by dipping deeper into two current albums that have been getting a lot of play in my car recently, The Agnes Circle's Some Vague Desire, and Drab Majesty's The Demonstration. We then reach two decades back into the vaults for a '90s goth classic from Vendemmian, then slide forward to one decade ago for a nearly-forgotten cut from France's Joy/Disaster, before coming back to the fresh and new with a debut from Poland's curiously-named Jesus Rodriguez. The set ends with another taste of Bloodlust EP from The Kentucky Vampires, who will be performing live at the June edition of Nashville's post-punk, goth, deathrock, and darkwave dance night, Fascination Street.

The dark metal portion of the show begins with new music from Seattle's 
Isenordal, who I was lucky enough to catch live recently. The sound of their latest release, Shores of Mourning, although equally rooted in modern dark metal styles, draws influence from the strings-and-keys-laden gothic doom acts of the '90s, the sound of which was sorely missing from the current crop of bands. We then tear deeper into the latest albums from VenenumParia, and Délétère, stopping briefly to get our first of two further bites from the excellent Raw soundtrack, courtesy of Jim Williams

I then shamelessly close the show with the opening track from the new 
Loss album, Horizonless, because nobody has waited longer to finally be able to share it with the world.


All of that, PLUS: Further new dark ambient from 
Abandoned Asylum; Another taste of Cristobal Tapia De Veer's score to The Girl with All the Gifts; A rare selection from the neo-classical vaults; and more!
