    This was the first at-home live broadcast I’ve ever done, so it might feel/sound a little different than the usual A Thick Mist episodes that are recorded live at WMWM. It worked out pretty ok, though, and I will definitely be doing more live shows from home, hopefully on a weekly basis. This episode aired from 8-10 (ET) on Saturday night and I’ll probably continue with that time. You can listen at mixlr.com/justinsnow

    For those curious about the setup in case you also might want to try live broadcasting, I’m only using two pieces of free software: the Mixlr app for broadcasting to Mixlr and Mixxx for playing music which I basically just use to crossfade and stuff. Mixxx outputs directly to Mixlr so it’s super simple. I use an external mic but that’s not required.

    Music-wise, this episode is pretty cool, with new Jeremy Bible (!!!!), the debut from Apologist, some classic Rev. Gary Davis, Aurora Borealis recordings, Indian chants, Tolowa dances, and some new killer doom out of Boston by Sea.

    Did you know there’s a song with lyrics written/sung in Black Speech, the language spoken by the Nazgûl in Lord of the Rings? Because that’s f*****g awesome. Also, the short-lived closing piece of martial industrial alongside Native American chants is pretty excellent imo.
