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.
CELESTIAL BODIES – Burning Trident
Total frayed-electric cable attack of noise sizzle, Dutch/Satanic Darby Crash/Cronos hybrid festering around in the puddle he's splayed out in, ridiculous oscillators, out of control. Seldon Hunt cover art. Members of Dead Neanderthals and Nihill. You can buy this record for 5 euros and pick it up free at Roadburn if you're going and want to save postage penalty! Less than a beer.
ANTIVERSE – Black Waves of Sorcery
The enormity of this band's sound is gripping. They sadly lost their bassist Jason Bauer to illness last week, he had been dutifully recording and playing live with them for a good period through his illness. Throughout that time the group had Bandcamp revenues all passed to him. Under the Regolith hit late last year and stands tall with other melodic/death/black contenders of late.
LOS HUAYCOS – Deforestation
Great Peruvian/American melange of psychedelicized metal/HC weirdness, right out of the Bay Area on the great local Tankcrimes label. Frantic, razorsharp guitar, bet they're destroying live.
BOOZE CONTROL – Forgotten Lands
Fourth album from these German hounds, injecting some teutonic flair into their trad-NWOBHM leanings.
GOBLINSMOKER – Toad King
UK one-man project of Adam Kennedy, originally as a limited-to-50 cassette but digitally available still via the Sludgelord site. This is a fuzz-fueled tale of the Toad King, who rules goblins to general discontent, and they sacrifice themselves to be smoked by said king. A band monicker cannot get more transparent in intent.
