    What’s up, everyone. We hope all is going well in your corner of the world. Welcome back to the void where we ramble about yet another box of new-ish tunes and odd frequencies for you to explore.

    In this one, we cover territories that lean into realms of industrial metal, cosmic death metal, chug-da-chug hardcore, minimalist dungeon synth, balmy crust punk, and noise-oozing powerviolence. There are quite a few grotty timbres harbored in this one, but there are a few tufts of calm that pock the episode’s duration. Many of these releases dropped in the early summer months of 2022, so we hope our ramblings shed some light on releases you might have missed. That being said, you can peruse the full list of what’s covered throughout this episode below. Timestamps are provided for each single, EP, split, or album, in case you want to jump to any particular segment of the conversation.

    Bands/artists discussed in this episode include Dawnwalker, Tulip, Black Magnet, Valborg, END, Cult Leader, Labyrinth of Stars, Cloud Rat, Gonemage, Riversleem, Hekselbad, Threats, Smug Anime Face, Glazeddeathdoughnut, Moon Pussy, Mirakler, Foverever Stuck on this Nightmare They Called Planet Earth, Feth, Rigorous Institution, Arkaik, Trauma Bond, Hermit Knight, White Ward, Sunrise Patriot Motion, and others.

    In this one, we babble about releases from Chat Pile, Low Cunning, Crowning, and a litany of other bands. Slicing emoviolence, cathartic avant-garde black metal, funky electronic, and cacophonous deathgrind are but a few timbres explored. Below you will find the full list of what we cover throughout the episode’s duration. Timestamps are provided for each single, EP, album, or split, in case you want to jump to any particular segment of the conversation.

    'ello, fellow vacuum drifters! We hope you're all doing well. Here we are yet again with another episode chock full of word waffling. As you might expect, much of the material we cover in this one is "dated" in internet terms, but we hope a gem or two you might have overlooked these past few months lurks within.

    The releases covered range from noir black metallers White Ward and partycorers Steaksauce Mustache to nature-steeped dungeon synth and berserk mathcore. Connor yammers on about becoming primordial space goop and repeats one too many soundbites from a Counting Crows tune. There's a whole armada of non-sense to wade through. Below you can peruse the entire list of material we blather about. Timestamps are provided for each single, EP, or album, in case you want to jump to any particular segment of the conversation.

    Bands/artists discussed in this episode include Drain, ZOMBIESHARK!, Psycroptic, White Ward, Saor, Mutually Assured Destruction, WAKE, Candy, Imperial Triumphant, In-Between, Warthog, Virgin Mother, Trǫlláss, Ghoulmire, Alkilith, Moonshield, Eight Bells, Greyhaven, Pyrithe, Black Matter Device, Steaksauce Mustache, and many others.

Below you will find the full list of what we cover throughout the episode's duration. Timestamps are provided for each single, EP, or album, in case you want to jump to any particular segment of the conversation.

    Salutations, sluddites! We hope you’re all keeping well. Our respective schedules have become a bit complicated these past several weeks, which rendered our output of rambles sluggish. After this episode, we should be back to normal form (we already have a new one recorded).

    In this episode, we talk about a bundle of releases, many of which are “dated” by internet standards (you’ll see what we mean when you scroll further down). Regardless of that aspect, we cover an assorted array of frequencies that are meditative and droning, hammering and technical, emotive, bedraggled, and soaring. You can find all of the artists we chat about, in roughly chronological order, in the list down below.

    If you have some artists, albums, singles, or any other form of musical media you’d like us to consider for an upcoming episode, please feel free to send us an email or reach out at one of our various social media channels. Thank you all so much for tuning in!

    Bands/artists discussed in this episode include Cave In, Wormrot, Insanity Check, Besna, Greg Puciato, Forndom, Whores., Mycorrhizae, Big Water, IIRA, TRAPS, Sander Cohen, Autosarcophagy, Fetal Blood Eagle, Thisquietarmy x Away, Human Cull, Khazad-dûm, Heavy Meta, Blastanus, Allegaeon, An Isolated Mind, and many more.

Great resource

Met Ryan at Fire in the Mountains festival in Wyoming. He has a deep knowledge of obscure, heavy music and this is a great resource for discovering new bands. Keep up the good work!
