The EP offers three new psalms (plus a hidden gem on the physical editions) – dark luscious death doom ear candies that will thrust listeners into a sensual world of darkness and temptation and conceal the borders between sweet pain and destructive illusion.

Together, the lineup perfects the unique mix of extreme rock and electronic music they’ve pioneered over their storied career. Join Jordan and Sochynsky for a tag team GIMME guest DJ special of some killer selections, and don’t forget to hit the tipjar if you can.
Wode Guest DJ Special – Now into their second decade, English black/death combo Wode release Burn In Many Mirrors (20 Buck Spin), the followup to their lauded Servants Of The Countercosmos. Here, Wode presents the band’s most potently wild and predatory work to date. Featuring six new tracks spanning forty minutes of meticulously summoned infernal ferocity, the band scorches the landscape and drapes it in the foul reek of death’s fog. One may hear the ancient voice of obscure and revered gods reflected through WODE‘s sulphuric incantations, the raging fire of the most blasphemous legends of the past called upon by the spirit of chaos and death. Shrouded in sepulchral black metal atmosphere and freezing cold melodies, Burn In Many Mirrors displays a studied regard for songcraft and motive well beyond mere convention, transforming into a concentrated dark chorus of ruin and abomination. GIMME welcomes the band for their first ever guest DJ special which promises to be a ripper of a radio event for us all.
