Host Raul Antony is joined by Al Ridenour, author of “The Krampus and the Old Dark Christmas”. We discuss the historical threads that led up the Krampus, how the creature was introduced to American culture, the 2015 horror film, and Ridenour’s history with the Cacophony Society. We also talk about Neofolk and Heathen Culture as it relates to world of the Krampus, including a surprising connection to one of our favorite artists at Heathen Harvest.
We discuss the latest release from OSTARA, GOST and the upcoming PERTURBATOR tour, dungeon synth from Рабор (RABOR), the long-awaited Greek Black Metal release from AGATUS, and blackened-synth-death from LAMENT CITYSCAPE + THEOLOGIAN. We also contacted several DANNY HYDE contest winners: Adam Czarnecki, Christopher Ashbrook & Stanley Kindly. Check your Facebook message requests to make sure you don’t miss out. We’re also experimenting with moving to SoundCloud, as we’ve experienced some quality issues when uploading directly to WordPress.
After a hectic month of projects and work we return to talk about what we’ve been listening to and watching. Jesse discusses two Russian bands, Nordavind & Volkolak, while Raul takes it back to the neo-retro synthwave sounds of Perturbator, and industrial from JK Flesh & Aderlating. We also talk about the show Stranger Things, the 80’s throwback trend in culture, the new book power electronics book “Fight Your Own War”, and Jesse’s hatred of saxophones.
From Heathen Harvest’s review of Uncanny Valley:
On this episode we have new music from Dernière Volonté, Ordo Rosarius Equilibrio, and The Human Voice. We also have some Coil and Electric Sewer Age and talk about my recent interview with Coil producer/engineer Danny Hyde. Also featuring Kristoffer Oustad, Cult of Youth, Theologian, and Gustaf Hildebrand.
Often referred to as “the secret third member of Coil”, Danny Hyde recounts his memories working with John Balance and Peter Christopherson on some of their most groundbreaking releases, including Love’s Secret Domain, Horse Rotorvator, and the infamous NIN remixes. Mr. Hyde discusses the controversial decision to release Backwards, reproducing the NIN remixes for Recoiled, and Trent Reznor’s involvement with recording Backwards in Nothing Studios. Danny Hyde also talks about his own projects (Aural Rage & Electric Sewer Age), modern electronic music and getting in touch with his Celtic roots.
Danny Hyde would like to reach out to our audience and have them send him recommendation to help him get back into contemporary industrial music. Leave a comment below or on social media recommending some of your favorite releases for Mr. Hyde, in particular music inspired by his work. We’ll pick out 2 contributors to receive a release featuring Danny Hyde.
From Heathen Harvest’s review of Coil’s Backwards:
Having been a month since our last episode we get caught up on what we’ve been up to since then. Your hosts have a few drinks while talking about experiences with the US jury system, getting over kicking boxing injuries, and discuss recently published reviews on Heathen Harvest, Black Ivory Tower, and Nine Circles. We discuss Chinese folk band Raflum, the challenge of meaningful power electronics, Batushka’s orthodox troubles in Russia and what that means to black metal as adversarial music, and more.
Chaos Sedated returns with a new mix of industrial, dark ambient, and apocalyptic folk featuring Awen, Der Blutharsch, Rome, and more.
From the Heathen Harvest review of Awen – Grim King of the Ghosts:
This is a concept album, and per the promotional text it “stands as a sonic dedication to the ties that bind this world to the spectral” and is “rooted in the concept of the Grim Grey King.” The music and songs which Awen employ on Grim King of the Ghosts is successful at bringing this concept to fruition, with the overall album showcasing musical acumen, standout songs, memorable lyrics (in a variety of languages), and vocals that range from bombastic to seductive. Awen, helmed by Erin Powell and Katrin X—along with a plethora of other musicians including b9 InVid (from Et Nihil and the now-defunct, infamous industrial project Luftwaffe)—brings a musical diversity to Grim King of the Ghosts which ranges from haunting and unnerving to militant, mystic, and folky, while managing to keep each track’s sounds canonical for the entire experience.
