In keeping with tradition, this first episode of the year is a long look back at the best of the previous year's worth of dark music, selected from the realms of goth, post-punk, deathrock, darkwave, industrial, film scores, dark metal, and those regions in between, or off the standard chart. That said, welcome to the "Out ov the Coffin: Best ov 2016" Special.

Consider this a sonic time-capsule, if you will, or a themed mix-tape of the songs and albums that stood out, made the strongest impressions, were often stuck in my player, or were attached to the defining moments of the year that was 2016. You will find that these entries are not ranked, but played in an order that flows for the listener. Each talk break highlights some of the best film and television music of the year, too.

As always, there are a few releases that are making their first appearance on this episode -- like the latest from Ash Borer and Worm Ouroboros, both of which saw December release and, perhaps, missed their chance at other people's Best-of lists. Hence, I wait until January to put my list together, allowing time for things to creep in at the last second.

That said, enjoy this collection, and please pass it along to a friend.
