AEMPYREAN, OLD MAN LIZARD Among The Top Tracks of the Week
Every Thursday, Gimme Radio Program Director, Brian Turner, delivers the top 5 jaw-dropping tracks on Gimme Radio.
Culled from the week’s past shows, these tracks have the Gimme Radio DJs' seal of approval, have the listeners demanding more and the Gimme office buzzing.
AEMPYREAN – "Chapel of Ghouls"
Eye-clawing destructo insanity from Bangalore, India, Aempyrean's cross-genre attack is full of filth and fury. BTW, Gimme's listener Manoj presents a full-on India 2-hour metal sampler on Sunday 12/16 at 9pm ET.
RUNELORD – "Salvation Aggression"
Your vehicle to Valhalla has arrived, epic Swedish Power Metal project (third in a trilogy) from Ced Forsberg of Rocka Rollas/Blazon Stone fame. A fan wrote lyrics and hired Ced to do all the music, Georgy Piechev of Bulgarian thrashers The Outer Limits on vocals.
BLUE HUMMINGBIRD ON THE LEFT – "Hail Huitzilopochtli'
This curious piece of the Black Twilight Circle puzzle comes from the USA and their bizarro name is actually the translation of the Aztec god Huitzilopochtli. Been hearing this a number of Gimme shows; delay-drenched sick vox, warfaring instrumental attack complete with indigenous instruments.
OLD MAN LIZARD – "Cursed Ocean, Relentless Sea"
Proggy timeshifts provide an undercurrent to a dreamy river of sludgy riffery; some delicate knuckledragging out of Suffolk UK courtesy the interesting Wasted State imprint.
HIGH TIDE – "FUTILIST'S LAMENT"
That introductory sick guitar fuzztone perks ears up everytime one of these tracks hits the Gimme netwaves. The definitive UK proto-metal document from '69 marking the transition from Summer of Love floweriness to a true getting-down-to-business moment of badass heavy psychedelia. Sea Shanties cuts through it all and still maintains baroque buoyancy and prog intellectualism all the while being a gruntfest of primitive no-holds-barred guitar excess.
