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.
SICK TO THE BACK TEETH – Milk It
Brooklyn one-man mega-prolific unit who has excelled in upending the roots of whatever industrial/doom/Sab-tinged garden he tends to plop down in with his recording device. A fascinating full-length digital album of Nirvana covers called Flea Circus that seemingly covers that band's catalogue's least-known tunes (I personally at least have never heard "Blandest", "Bambi Slaughter" or "Token Eastern Song"), In Utero's "Milk It" gets a decayed treatment here.
BLACK CILICE – Outerbody Incarnation
Sampling from Transfixion of Spirits (Iron Bonehead, out September 6th) finds this mysterious Portuguese figure continuing to traverse the lines between extreme, up front assault and shadowy, opaque crust-fidelity shapes of unknown origin. USA shows in October!
LINGUA IGNOTA – Butcher of the World
From tomorrow's Profound Lore release Caligula, the latest installment of Kristin Hayter's ongoing project finds the heaviness reliant on depth, silence, thick atmospheric tension and less electronic overload. Quite stirring, a release that may confound certain metalheads but it's unique and powerful in vision. Guests from Uniform, Full of Hell, The Body, The Rita.
COLD CURSE – Burning (photo attached credit Gabe Bercerra)
Crazed Cali thrash/death/HC slop drenched in a thick gauze of fuzz/ Cold Curse are hitting a new stride 9 years into their existence (after only an EP and demo) with the new Violent Measure (Creator-Destructor Records).
CRYPT SERMON – Key of Solomon
Sampling of the Ruins of Fading Light LP due in mid September, Philly's Crypt Sermon might be the top of the next wave pack of epic doom purveyors. Chiming guitars, anthemic chorus, solos that surge on top of already-heady instrumentation that continues to build and not back down.
