This week on GIMME METAL Radio:
The Lion’s Daughter Guest DJ Special – For the first part of their career, The Lion’s Daughter was deeply rooted in blackened sludge metal. However, when it came time for album number three, the St. Louis trio abandoned all tradition and traversed into new territory through bold experimentations. The resulting Future Cult is a synth-laden metal record that could easily serve as the score to a Dario Argento film. Now, the band picks up where it left off, with Skin Show, out on Season Of Mist, marking a new direction that cannot be labeled or defined. GIMME METAL welcomes the band to the DJ console. Dig in and chat live!
Metal & Coffee: The Return Of Ebonie – Hang out and enjoy something dirty and grimey to go along with your morning cup of joe. If it sounds like it was birthed from the slow-moving swamps or dusty cold caverns, you’ll hear it on Metal & Coffee. You may even get some bonus shots of hardcore. Tune in with Ebonie and join her in the Live Chat!
Amenra Guest DJ Special – Amenra’s latest full-length De Doorn, released late last month via Relapse Records, D is at once a departure and a momentous act of deliverance. Stepping outside the run of albums titled Mass I-VI, De Doorn casts a twenty-one-year journey from the heart of Belgium’s crusading hardcore scene to world-renowned, spiritually guided innovators in an enthralling new light. Ritual, remembrance, and hard-won rebirth have always been at the heart of Amenra’s colossal, soul-purging approach. Where the Mass.. albums have taken the form of solitary struggles whose fearless honesty has aligned itself to the most intrinsically human of chords, the dynamics of De Doorn are as stricken by destiny as ever, but sonically looser. Guided to a lesser extent by the band’s characteristically immense, behind-the-beat traction, it’s more lush, immersive, steeped in sonorous, cathedral-echo ambiences amplified to the point of static-infected instability and carrying passages of deeply intimate spoken-word that feel like being drawn in to the most hallowed of confidences. GIMME METAL welcomes guitarist Lennart Bossu for what’s sure to be a monumental guest DJ visit.
