This is unfortunately our final episode on Dr.Sanders’ favorite band, Type O Negative. We’re covering every album from World Coming to Dead Again and a few other releases from them. Type O Negative’s output during this time drew upon everything from family relationships, religion, and even a song written about Steele’s Playgirl spread. It was quite an interesting time and we had a lot of fun discussing it. The most tragic part of the entire situation is that there are no more albums for us to talk about.

45 Grave is one of the more interesting bands associated with deathrock and one that needs to be discussed. Their sound has elements of many different genres and blends them into a very unique sound. They’re often compared to Christian Death in style, but are further from that sound than one would be led to believe. On this episode we take a look at Sleep In Safety, Autopsy, Only The Good Die Young, and Pick Your Poison.

That’s right! The time has come for a long overdue discussion about Joy Division. While not a gothic band, (their genre lies mostly in post-punk) there is no denying the influence the group had on the emerging goth music scene. We’re probably all familiar with the album Unknown Pleasures, but maybe this episode will shed some light on the other releases that came out before and after that seminal album.

It’s time to release the bats as we’re taking a look at The Birthday Party (As well as The Boys Next Door album Door, Door). The band is most famous for being fronted by singer Nick Cave, but also featured the talented Rowland Howard and Bad Seeds member Mick Harvey. While their sound is most often associated with post-punk as opposed to gothic rock, their experimentation and abrasiveness have influenced many who make music that relates to the darker sides of life.

Gothropology is the show that discusses ancient traditions, spirituality, sexuality and regeneration- the guide to come and take you by the hand into unknown pleasures. On the second installment of Wheel of the Year with Griffin Ced, Brit-El and Griffin discuss the pagan high day Imbolc, and the traditions surrounding the return of spring. From the randy Roman origins of Valentine’s Day in Lupercalia to the stirring of returning earthly life force that is Imbolc, tune in for detailed discussion on the true reason for the season. The dark, contemplative “dying times” pass into light with clearing of the mind, surroundings and spirit– “spring cleaning” leading to the strength of will, allowing the primal force and strength of will to go forth and conquer. Griffin discusses further the inspiration that makes individual rites distinct year-by-year, and gives personal insight on his upbringing and experience as a community teacher today.

As the wheel turns, tune in!

We decided to honor the late great David Bowie by taking a look at three movies starring the Thin White Duke. Two of these films have strong connections to the gothic subculture and the third is a slightly obscure yet highly stylized film about an alien. If you’ve been waiting for us to discuss the Labyrinth, then this is your chance to hear us ramble about our love of Jim Henson’s masterpiece. Hopefully you find our opinions interesting and you might find a new movie worth checking out.

This time Dr.Sanders and Robbie Gore take a close look at one of the most influential bands in industrial music with Skinny Puppy. Their aggressive sound has connected with many people in the goth subculture although their music is not reminiscent of gothic rock or post-punk groups. We hope you enjoy this conversation about industrial music’s relation to goth and the first four albums that Skinny Puppy produced.

This week we’re discussing yet another classic gothic rock band, Fields of the Nephilim. The band has definitely had an interesting career and have had their ups and downs with members leaving, interesting side-projects and record label interference. Dr.Sanders and Robbie Gore take a look at their first four official albums Dawnrazor, The Nephilim, Elizium, and Mourning Sun while also mentioning some of the behind the scenes obstacles faced by the band.

In this week’s news segment we briefly discuss the death of legend David Bowie and our experience at a 45 Grave show.

This week we’re taking a look at a lesser known band called Rosetta Stone. They were active from the mid-eighties until around the year 2000 and were definitely influenced by the evolving industrial scene during the recording of their later albums. Early in the band’s career they had a very gothic rock sound that produced some very catchy and unique tracks, but does their catalog of albums include a plethora of hidden gems or merely a collection of average songs? Listen and find out what we think of the albums An Eye For the Main Chance, Adrenaline, Chemical Emissions, Unerotica and the live release Under the Rose.

Note: On this episode’s news segment we discuss and wish David Bowie a Happy 69th Birthday. The day after recording the episode, David Bowie unfortunately passed away due to complications from cancer.

Jan 8, 2016

We are back in full swing with a brand new episode. We thought it would be a great way to start the new year with another movie episode so this week we review three movies that are currently streaming on Netlfix (At least currently in America), and they are Dark Star: H.R. Giger’s World, Rosemary’s Baby, and The Legend of Hell House. So if you’re looking to add a little darkness to you’re new year, these are some excellent choices whether your looking for an obscure horror film, a classic film, or a new perspective on a great artist you will find something among this list. We hope everyone enjoyed their holidays and enjoy this episode. Stay Spooky!
