Songs of Morning: Sept. 30, 2014

Its a pretty common occurrence that I wake up with a song already stuck in my head. This morning it just happened to be Manilla Road's Necropolis. Great song one of their best albums, Crystal Logic, if I do say so myself.

In Darkness We Are Doomed Vol. 3

Our good friend Makoto (who runs the record label Weird Truth Productions, and who also has mixed and mastered both Darkcorpse and Retch releases) put on the 3rd volume of In Darkness We Are Doomed over at Earthdom on Saturday night. In addition to Makoto's own Funeral Moth, who are an absolute must-listen for any Corrupted or Mournful Congregation fans, the line-up also featured labelmates Deadly Spawn and Basilisk in addition to the legendary Necrophile. So, a whole lot of death and one massive slab of really heavy doom.

Blood Rite Vol. 6

One hell of a time getting this event together, though happy to say its finally all in the bag, and with a lineup that I'm really quite satisfied with: relative newcomers Lifeblood with what is more "Black Rock" than Black Metal if my memory serves me correctly from when Retch played our first show with them, grind darlings Self Deconstruction, and the Black Thrash bastards of Doraid will all be joining Anatomia and Undergang on 10/14 over at Nishi Yokohama's El Puente. Really looking forward to it!
