Yes, we get it: The goth scene and the dubstep crowd didn’t exactly mix well. We find that a shame because the music shares so many of the same aggressive, noisy qualities that rivetheads and EBM fans enjoy. Submitted for your consideration, then — a selection of dubstep songs that just might help you change your perspective! Enter this Chapter with an open mind, and you may find some new music to listen to.

We’d like to thank Heather for this Chapter’s listener submission! Send your listener submissions/ suggestions to arcanemachinepodcast@gmail.com!

Despite historically loathing and delineating itself from ‘mainstream’ society, goth culture and identity finds itself interpolating broader systemic values as do all cultures under capitalism. On todays episode we will explore those behaviors and ideologies that seep in from they systemic framework of patriarchy and white supremacy and examine the subtle yet pernicious impact it has on our relationships and hierarchies within goth.

Our guests this month are Aimee (Mixcloud, IG, FB) Ellen (Etsy, Modeling, YouTube) and Sienna (IG)!

It's time to rock with death again as Dr.Sanders and Cameron tackle Danzig's project after the Misfits and before his solo band Danzig. A much beloved, but sometimes overlooked era with tons of reverb and songs that sometimes sound like they could be the theme to an 80's slasher movie. You don't have to wait for "November" to come this year because this episode is "Final-ly Descending" to the podcast world. They take a look at Initium (1984), Unholy Passion (1985), Samhain III: November-Coming-Fire (1986), and Final Descent (1990).
