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.
GORE – Bad Ideas Obsession
Man, what a great band. Dutch, technical, blazing instrumentalists, broke up in 1996 and now back in the live arena as of March thanks to Walter from Roadburn. So what is this? New? It's weirdly a remade version of their 1992 Lifelong Deadline LP, which seemingly never synched with the band's ultimate vision of it when it was out. New structure, packaging etc. Excited for the forthcoming documentary as well.
SARCÓFAGO – Crust
Reissue of a millenial EP as part of Greyhaze Record's campaign to rerelease all of Sarcófago’s splendid and fetid material. 4 songs, 11 minutes, the band as a duo, a fried document of extremity.
HERESIARCH – Equimanthorn
Demos and other pre-first LP tracks from this war/black/death unit from windswept Wellington, New Zealand. A stomping Bathory tribute.
THE LUMBERJACK FEEDBACK – Therapy?
Nice twin drum French incursions of majesty, heard on Blasko's Volume Forever show on Gimme: snatches of Pelican, Neurosis. Heavy while still spectral and emotional, great dynamics.
1914 – Arrival. The Muse Argonne
World War I-themed darkly death metal from the Ukraine? Aye to more history lessons in the genre. The album is out on Napalm end of May and also sports a cover of The Exploited's "Beat the Bastards".
