This week on GIMME METAL:
Fuath Guest DJ Special – Translated as “hatred” in Gaelic, Scotland’s Fuath is the atmospheric black metal offshoot of Saor’s Andy Marshall. Taking inspiration from what is arguably black metal’s most fertile and explosive period – the early to mid-1990s – the music channels the unrelenting tenor and iciness of forebears Darkthrone and Mayhem, as well as the mystery and atmosphere of bands like Windir. Ripe with crisp energy, rawness, and melodicism, Fuath’s second LP II is out now on Season Of Mist. Be sure to join Marshall in the Live Chat for his debut guest DJ special.
Amon Acid Guest DJ Special – Hailing from Leeds, Amon Acid was forged in 2018 to make psychedelic doom metal. It started as a bit of fun between two people, jamming at home, but after self-releasing their first EP, which received a positive response, it became a serious mission. Indeed, the core duo of Sarantis (originally from Athens) and Briony (from the UK) are serious, and one listen to their debut album, Paradigm Shift, out now on Helter Skelter / Regain Records, is enough to convert nonbelievers into fanatics, so hypnotically addicting is their sonic drug. Calling them “psychedelic doom metal” is a misnomer, for the duo’s interests and ethnic backgrounds bring together a swirling soup of unique sensibilities. Across Paradigm Shift, one can hear trace elements of space rock, doom, psych, rebetiko, and Anatolian music as well as their love of horror and sci-fi. In this way, they fuse together a world of sounds which is at once consistent and unpredictable. GIMME METAL welcomes Amon Acid for their guest DJ debut.
Autopsy Guest DJ Special – Autopsy formed in 1987 in San Francisco, and was among the early breed of death metal bands to emerge, releasing four albums on Peaceville before disbanding in 1995. After a fifteen-year hiatus, Autopsy officially returned from the grave with the 2010’s The Tomb Within EP. This was followed by the release of the band’s fifth studio album, Macabre Eternal one year later, spearheading a resurgence of the legends with multiple subsequent albums and EPs. Autopsy recently released Live In Chicago, their first ever official live album. Recorded at Reggie’s Rock Club March 7th, 2020, the record boasts 66 minutes of classics spanning the band’s 30+ year career. Live In Chicago also includes brand new track “Maggots In The Mirror,” giving fans something to chew on while the impending next studio release takes shape. In the meantime, GIMME welcomes co-founding vocalist/drummer Chris Reifert for a guest DJ takeover!
