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.
NEONDERTHAL DEATH – NIGHTMARE BEGINS
New project from Jussi Lehtisalo and Jussi Rajala the former of Finland's schizoid Circle and Ektro label, as as expected it perplexes with a collision of ideas. This sounds like a 1980's powerpoint meeting soundtrack with cardio-friendly synth workout interrupted by a vomitous troll bursting into the conference room. Good.
DENDRITIC ARBOR – ROMANTIC LOVE
Atonal septic tank soundtrack courtesy of this amazing combo part of Gimme's spotlight on the Baltimore label Grimoire Records airing January 23rd. Grimoire does all its own recording and mastering and has a surprisingly wide tapestry of righteous sounds, spreading throughout many subgenres without sounding dilletantish.
PULVER – HOWL
Touted on our Dave Mustaine's show this week, a highway rockin greezy 70s jam from their excellent Cruz Del Dur 7".
FESTERDAY – KILL YOUR TRUTH
The highly-anticipated iihtallan LP has hit this month on Season Of Mist, and its amalgamation of classic black and death metal might not take grand leaps into uncharted lands, but having been through a three decade metamorphosis these Finns sounds suitably destructive and dedicated.
BASMU – WANDERING THE ANCIENT FOREST
Evocative of the basement minimalism of so much great 90's black metal, these Canucks are back on their latest Infernal Circles of the Sabbat. I heard "Sigil of Protection" on Battleflutes and Sideways Skulls here on Gimme and dug in to this primordial weirdness pretty quickly. Whispered chaos, drums that sound right off the first Chrome album, blankets of fuzz that hit the sweet spot.
