High, Low and In Between #4 – Mutilated (FRA) | Psychodeath Lunatics, 1988

[We are Gimme Radio regulars now. Proper main-event attractions. But there is no satisfying our lust for all things joyfully decadent in heavy music. Contain the beast then. That’s all we’re doing here really.

Welcome to another music review. Number four! Our fourth show on Gimme Radio is also just around the corner, so let this entertain you and allow you to become a formidable human of unquenchable good taste.

We go for old and new releases, hi-fi, lo-fi and everything in between and the only rule is that it’s got to be mental METAL!]

SATAN MADE ME DO IT debut and residency on GIMME RADIO!

You’ve been kept in the dark for long enough, so here’s some major news FINALLY: we are officially part of the GIMME RADIO family, a metal music platform for all the metal-obsessed bangers of the world in whose ranks are included Dave Mustaine, Katon W. De Pena, The Reaper with Athenar of Midnight fame, Jessica Pimentel, Ross The Boss, Danny Lilker and many other members of exquisite metal authority. We’re more than excited, you can tell just by reading this.

What does this all mean? Basically, our Two-Hour-Long Monthly Shows Are Back, better than ever. We’re premiering Saturday, December 22nd, at 11am ET / 8am PT (that’s 4pm GMT / 5pm CET). Pretty damn soon, innit?

This is a lot to take in and there will me more to say on the days to come. For now, read all about us and stare at our lifeless eyes – black eyes, like a doll’s eyes – on our Gimme Radio profile: https://gimmeradio.com/#/djs/121 (be a pal and log in!)

Episode 49 – Bad Character

This is one proud, barbaric, dangerous dude of an episode. REALLY GOOD stuff.  Black/thrash nuggets from nine different countries. Some new stuff, some demo stuff, some obscure stuff from good times gone by. AND we have all the adjectives you would expect from such a show: perverted, thick, sick, impenetrable, vicious, revolting, cool, fresh, harsh, commendable, extraordinaire, sinister and, above all, relentless. So get in, get on, get off and listen like your life depended on it.

Episode 47 – Handful of Fire

Episode 47 – Handful of Fire (right click to download)

We weren’t joking. The last episode we did for Radio Quântica got real nasty. We were in a pissed off mood and didn’t feel like taking things nice and easy. We lead a happier life now, thank goodness, and that is reflected on this month’s 45-minute episode.  You know when Donald Trump said his net worth fluctuated according to his feelings? It’s similar. Except that Donald Trump is a total fucking douchebag and we are actually pretty cool.

If there’s a theme at play here we can’t really tell you what it is. What we can say is that it feels good. Our ears are happy; our necks are sore. Just don’t dance. You’ll anger Tom.

We hope you like drama in your music, cause this is gonna move you to tears. Don’t be a wimp now! SATAN MADE ME DO IT didn’t just go soft on you; expect no tacky ballads, ever. You can write that down too.

What we attempted here was teaming up a bunch of very intense and dramatic heavy metal flavored tunes in order to uncover the feelings inside all you heartless bastards.

Every time you bang your head a kitty dies. Stop it, ok?

Episode 37 – Doomed Planet

Episode 37 – Doomed Planet (right click to download)

This one is a bit two sided. Yin and yang, light and shadow shit. Half black/thrash, half power/speed, apparently unable to get along, but in the end they came out as BFFs . Nothing planned, mind. It’s just we’ve been thinking about our next deejaying gig at VAGOS OPEN AIR festival – three nights, three different sets – and we’ll probably do something along these lines. Probably. Best way to find out: be there!

Episode 36 – Lay Down Your Arms

Episode 36 – Lay Down Your Arms (right click to download)

It’s funny, you know? There are plenty of non-metal people who admit listening to metal music. Now that’s just fine; such barriers have long been broken. We have written about this before. What’s interesting is not that these people listen to metal; it’s the metal they usually listen to. If you know a thing or two about music you’ll be very quick in confessing your love for the likes of Slayer, Napalm Death or Burzum. These three bands have some things in common: they all inspired genres other than metal and are generally archived under the “extreme metal” category.

Now ask those same people if they enjoy NWOBHM, Speed, Power, Glam – in general, the more traditional and “domesticated” metal genres – and see what happens (Maiden and Priest don’t count!). Even among head bangers it’s not infrequent to find people who have no love for these sounds.

If this episode doesn’t make you change your mind then you’ll continue leading a sad, sad existence. And we’ll show you no compassion. Good music has no boundaries.

NO DAWN IN LUCIFER’S LIGHT!
