Mom's listening.

Much as 2016 is shaping up to be, 2010-2011 was a great year for kvlt black metal, and as part of last night's extra-blackened horrorcast™, we took many great side-trips into that year, with selections from Fidei Defensor, Disakrin, Blackest Woods [for a very brief time, Ormeyngel was the "Youth Attack of Oslo," -now, some of their releases are available as FREE downloads on bandcamp], City Bones and Forgotten Spell. ...

Unquestionably, the stars of our program were our live guests Worthless, who, as a relatively young band, already are quite accomplished—with great songs, deftly arranged, and executed in a raw, aggressive, gracefully shrieking manner—it occurred to me that Worthless' first cassette demo [recorded at My Castle of Quiet engineer Jean Paul's studio, The Ossuary Recordings] could easily and worthily see a vinyl issue on Gilead Media or Broken Limbs.... Thanks again to the band for rendering a fantastic set, our first live show of the new WFMU season.

Also praiseworthy on our playlist were very-new releases by M. Del Rio | Istidraj [this release quickly becoming one of my favorites of the year] | Ramlord | Moros | The Gospel Truth | Caveman Cult ...

...and closing out or last half-hour, one of the finest noise-cassette-one-piece-on-each-side releases in a long while, and definitely one of my personal favorites of 2016, Vasculae's Head Against Wall.

Our screen capture this week comes from Rainer Werner Fassbinder's Gods of the Plague; click on its gathered mourners to reach this week's playlist, streaming audio, album artwork, listener comments, etc. Next week's show is destined to be more noise-focused, if only for the grace of a glut of material as yet unaired...we'll see, perhaps a Noise Bliss-Out is in order. ...
