As I listen to Bestial Mouths I am transported into a catharsis of gothic spoken word, industrial synth and a tribal soundscape that is not only powerful and intricate, but fragile in the same harrowing breath. Lynette Cerezo, is the creator and vocalist for this FABULOUS injection of new wave gothic sound.

Having departed from the world of fashion design and been a political activist for gender equality, her music transcends darkness, embracing horror based iconography of needles and thread, skin, sexuality, and witchery as discourse for the direction of her music videos. I could best describe the music akin as the combination of vocals by Diamanda Galas, the verve of Peaches combined with echoes of NIN meets the digital landscape of Psychic TV. Their debut album Heartless will take you on an exploration of self-expression that can be described as tribal modern day electro-incantations for the darkest of souls.

Having toured since 2012 and last year being nominated as best band of 2016 by auxiliarymagazine.com, Bestial Mouths are to perform this August at Entremuralhas 2017 – Festival Gótico – VIII Edição in Portugal, then onto Kalabalik på Tyrolen Festival in Sweden. This is part of a 20-date European tour, successfully promoting their new digital remix album (Still) Heartless. Check out their official website bestialmouths.com

Welcome back to Cemetery Confessions! On this month's podcast we are talking about death, cemetery tourism and romanticized morbidity, we are reviewing the new album from Die Selektion, and we are going to cover a gambit of topics relating to identity, club culture, goth youtube, fashion, and music from the perspective of those who came to goth culture in the modern age.

Our guests this month are Lennox, Shelby, and Lilith!

News: 6:39
-Cemetery Tourism isn't Just for "Fat Goths"

Album Review: 33:33
-Deine Stimme Ist Der Ursprung Jeglicher Gewalt - Die Selektion

Philosophy Corner: 56:03

Baby bats are often seen as the lifeblood of the club scene, and are often the metric by which the health of goth culture is measured, and when they aren’t showing up to events the “goth is dead” crowd make their concerns known. As goth ages 40 years on, concern over the livelihood and influx of new members has been a consistent topic of discussion. Elder goths, millennials, the music industry, the internet, club owners, the economy, postmodern youth culture, all have been pointed to as culpable in what some perceive to be the death knell of goth. Are these claims valid, or just extremist and myopic assertions? This month I intend to explore each of these avenues both from the perspective of someone who has been goth for well over a decade, and from the fresh perspective of our guests.

The Lusitania; a ship that was just as luxurious as the Titanic and its demise just as tragic. However, the Lusitania went down not by accident, but as an act of war. It's demise set things in motion that brought the US into World War 1.

This week on Necromancy Radio, I interviewed Russian/Finnish vocalist and synth player Suzi Sabotage from the band Masquerade. Suzi is a divine combination of Siouxsie meets Nina Hagen in 2017. If you love punk female vocalists, Suzi is not only a fashionista but a woman with something to say. Her lyrics are humanitarian and often dark observations that are inspired by her curiosity, walking on the wild side and serious issues such as animal and fur farming. Starting writing her own lyrics at the age of 11 – Suzi’s tenacity is evident in everything she does – front woman and very early developed direction knowing what she wanted to be – and has become.

“I love the sweaty glamour of performing”.

We did discuss her love for art, fashion and the era of the 1920’s which also inspired her last album cover for Ritual – being a famous Man Ray photograph which I have included as part of this blog to reiterate this comparison. Suzi has lived her whole life in the city of Helsinki, however she loves to travel and being on the road touring.

She hopes to secure more gigs for before the new album which is being worked in possibly next year in January – this is not officially the release date, but as the interview unfolds you will be able to find out more about the album and motivation for her next release. We are so grateful for her time to chat with us as this podcast is her very first online audio interview.

Please check out the links below to follow the band, Suzi Sabotage solo projects and upcoming gigs with Masquerade. Suzi is working on a new album due for release early 2018.

When most people think of fairies, they think of small winged humanoid creatures that are tricksters, but are mostly helpful to humans. This version of the fairy is far from the fae of traditional European folklore.  These fairies stole human children and in their place left a creature known as a changeling. This episode discusses the history of changeling folklore, and the psychology behind the myth.

Headhunting is the practice of seeking, removing and preserving human heads. It has been practiced worldwide and may date as far back as the Mesolithic era. This episode focuses mainly on the historic reports of headhunting in Indonesia and the Philippines, and the preservation of this ritual into the modern era.

This week on Necromancy Radio I decided to mix things up a bit and discuss gothic lifestyle that pertains to diet and the subject of living vegan, with Nigerian/American Adaora Osimiri-Lewis aka Goth in the Raw. The 5’11 amazonian goddess is not only the creator of website Goth in the Raw, but is a wife, mother of 2, has multiple degrees in fashion, business and most recently, heath coaching. Adaora has walked the catwalks in NYC as a model, is an animal rights advocate, supporter of the Sophie Lancaster Foundation in conjunction with Illamasqua, magazine editor, previously an industrial singer for Razorblade Twins and most notably, a private raw food chef. Her recipes on the website Goth in the Raw are inspired by her passion for the macabre and darkness as an aesthetic – her Instagram is a work of art.

It seems a little of an oxymoron when people identify with the subculture in a vampiric way to the extent where Goths are not actually blood sucking vampires or even meat eaters, but can be raw foodies. The revolution of Veganism has been trending in recent years, however it definitely is not a fad by any means. If you’re serious about your health, the planet and animal cruelty, this is the podcast for you.

We also discuss her greatest influencers such as her grandfather, the Dalai Lama, racial discrimination as a black goth, religion and all kinds of stuff. We hope you enjoy this unique conversation and hope you find it inspiring as it is poignant, during a time in history where compassion and understanding is what is needed most to define ourselves as a community as well as secure our planet for the future.

Welcome to episode 43 of Cemetery Confessions! This month we are talking about subverting gender norms and the role performative aesthetic plays in goth identity, we are reviewing the new album from Selofan, and we are talking about the trans experience within the context of goth culture.

Our guests this month are patreon member Abigail and Aurora, who is an author and musician.

News: 16:24

Flamboyant Darkness: Female Fronted Goth Bands Subvert Gender Norms

Album Review: 1:13:18

Selofan - Cine Romance

Philosophy Corner: 1:34:14

While the existence of trans people has only recently come into mainstream consciousness in the form of a fight for equal rights, biologists have known for a long time that gender, sexuality, anatomy, and identity are a spectrum both in nature and in homosapiens. Goths too, have a history of subverting heteronormative patriarchal gender norms and expectations, and providing a safe space for those who don’t conform to an essentialist dichotomy. However the debate about whether or not goth culture is, in its current state, truly accepting and progressive, cis-centric and discriminatory,  or whether it even has any power at all to reshape culture into an egalitarian community apart from mainstream patriarchy, still rages today.
