Today's podcast is about literature, complete with 3 themes found throughout gothic literature, and a list of poems, stories, authors and books mentioned. If you're a baby bat with no desire to read, hopefully this will change your mind.

Welcome to 2018 and the very first podcast for the year! This is our 20th show since we started back in October 2016. This week we interview Romie Romak (based in Portland) and Taylor Shechet (based in LA) from the band GRYPT. I first discovered this group as I was in the process of shooting an Official Video for Necromancy. The track Tin Can Tomb I found on bandcamp and being it was gritty, dark and Romie’s vocals were eerie af, I knew it would be perfect for the video – and the rest as they say is history.

Many cultures and religions seem to have holidays around this time of year. Without much effort, the layers of the Christian holiday of Christmas can be peeled back to reveal its origins in more ancient pagan traditions from across Europe. Characters like Santa Claus, Jack Frost and the elves all have their bases in far more ancient characters of myth and folklore. Some of these characters are far less jolly than their modern counterparts. One of these darker characters is the Krampus.

"The Frozen Autumn creates what the band calls "Frozen Wave", that is to say an original, innovative kind of Electro-Coldwave blends melancholic male and female vocals, atmospheric gothic-wave, and 80s-style electropop. The result is an artistic collage of seamlessly blended styles and genres. The new album, "The Fellow Traveler" is the finest work in the band's two and a half decade career. Featuring a cover of "Loving The Alien" by David Bowie. "

In the age of the world wide web, goths have more opportunities to meet and share their thoughts than ever before. No longer do we have to create and publish our own zines, start a band, or run a goth event to express a sense of cultural identity and community. We are now able to project ourselves, our lives, and our scenes in HD video for the whole world to see and talk about. This has allowed our dark little culture to be opened up to a whole new audience of potential goths who may become seduced by the dark side and help create and participate in the culture, even if they don’t have a local scene. But does this type of access actually encourage goths to stop engaging with their local community? Is the emphasis on visual presentation having an adverse impact on the values and norms of the culture? That and more is what I’d like to explore this month.
