AFS v. 250 ~ Spite One & Embitter the Other...

Sorry...I was too busy to post the blog/podcast last week due to so many 12-hour shifts. The craziness at the office continues this week, but I'm sacrificing for you and will pay dearly tomorrow. So, here's two hours dominated by bitterness and spite....(followed by links to last week's show is also fairly bitter and spiteful, but there's a few fun rays of sunshine in there for you).

If you think the words glacial gloom-metal sound tasty, or the idea of guitar-riffs built on a system akin to cubic crystals, then hurry and become one of the 150 lucky people to score this momentous double-cassette release by the Goslings! This band is at the top of the outer-zoning metal game. The rest of you can have your SunnO)))). Hey, I like them, too, but if SunnO)))'s riffs creep in like eerie shrouds of fog, the Goslings' riffs enmeshing with Leslie Soren's vocals are like a freezing fog that falls from the sky to reveal Northern lights...chilling to the bone and haunting with beauty. With the very recent proper CD release of Heaven of Animals (a 2005 collaboration with Warmth, then known as Roxanne Jean Polise, the Goslings also have three (arguably four with Crucial Blast's issue of the Space Heater and Perfect Interior CDRs on one proper CD in 2006) full-length albums which are all worth the effort of hunting down. Really, this strikes me as a truly momentous and awesome band. Highest recommendation!

Speaking of momentous and awesome.....I've yet to compile my 2000-2009 decade-best lists, but I'm sure that my choice for the best metal album is self-titled by Jex Thoth. The album was released initially on CD only, but I Hate Records from Sweden has recently unleashed it on vinyl LP with a stupendous gatefold rendering of the cover art. I've included the entire sprawling "Equinox Suite" and the mind-scrambling finalé of the LP to convince you of its absolute rulingness.

If I find time to write down more thoughts about any of this music, I'll try n' update this post. But for now.....just havva listen, and trust that the new Nothing People 7" sounds and looks tremendous enough to be worth the high price, and the new Home Blitz is a grand slam, and be ready for the Guinea Worms to rule you for the entire length of a double LP in a few months. Next week, hear another sneak peak of the forthcoming Wounded Lion debut LP!
