E62: Christian Death - Valor Kand Era Part 2
This reunion episode brings back Robbie Gore as the original GothCast duo break down some lesser talked about albums from the Valor Kand era of Christian Death. It's one of the more interesting eras of the group as two competing versions of the band were releasing material sometimes within the same year. They cover the albums Insanus, Ultio, Proditio, Misericordiaque (1990), Sexy Death God (1994), Prophecies (1996), and well...one more from 1998. This one gets a little strange, but that's nothing new to this podcast.
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).
E60: Skeletal Family
There's no bones about it, Dr.Sanders and Cameron take a trip to visit the family...The Skeletal Family. Specifically the era of the band with singer Anne Marie Hurst. They were "promised" a lot with these records and they hope their efforts aren't "futile". They examine the albums Burning Oil (1984), Futile Combat (1985), and the compilation Eternal (2016).
E59: The Exorcist Series [1973, 1977, 1990]
On this possession-filled episode, Dr.Sanders and Cameron are visited by three movies that lurk in the shadows. The Exorcist and the two sequels it spawned vary wildly in quality, but just may hold some great surprises for those who decide to venture into their worlds. Can you survive these horrific reviews of The Exorcist (1973), The Exorcist II: Heretic (1977), and The Exorcist III (1990)!? May the power of GothCast compel you!
E58: Misfits Part 2 - The Graves Era
Dr.Sanders and Cameron take a look at what the Misfits had going on in the 90's and early 2000's. With the addition of singer Michale Graves and a series of new albums, what could possibly go wrong? They look at the albums American Psycho (1997), Evilive II (1998), Famous Monsters (1999), and Cuts from the Crypt (2001). There's a lot of controversy surrounding this era and the two hope to cover the things most fans are curious about.
E57: Misfits - The Danzig Era
In this fast and frightening episode of GothCast, Dr.Sanders and Cameron take a look at the beginning of Danzig's career as well as the birth of an entire music genre when they put the Misfits under the microscope. Horror punk may not be strictly goth music, but it's certainly spooky and loved by many in the scene. They examine the albums Static Age, Evilive, Walk Among Us, and Earth A.D as well as the strange events and legal troubles that plagued the band.
