Spring has sprung! Flowers are chirping and birds are blooming and your intrepid hosts are back from the Spring Fling in full force. What better way to celebrate the rebirth of nature than with tales of cryptic occultism and destructive bronze age warfare? But before we get to that, let's revisit something almost nice and appropriate for the season. Luminous Veil's record from last year was the source of some debate on the show, and we're checking in with the cheeseheads on their newest EP, which shows a rawer, more explosive side to the band. A surprise, but not an unwelcome one.

Following is the debut of Chilean death/war metallers Concilivm, who play a strikingly traditional strain of somewhat melodic death metal within a more modern black/death aesthetic wrapper. Lots of structural talk here: how should death metal songs be shaped? What's the ideal balance of chromaticism to melody in music like this? Is there such a thing as Too Much Bolt Thrower? After much debate our impressions are positive, but this is a great segment for the true musical autists among us (so every listener I guess.)

Wrapping things up is a record from a friend, namely Nick of Hessian Firm who supplies a striking vocal performance to the debut record of epic doomdeath juggernauts Evocator. That genre tag might be a bit misleading, though- there's elements of atmospheric black metal, brushes of prog, and an intense funeral doom atmosphere that creates a style distinct and unmistakeable. This is challenging music, more based on movement than riff, but those who take on the task of unraveling the dense neoclassical structures will find themselves greatly rewarded 0:00:00 - Intro/Luminous Veil - Halcyon Tyrannous (Wilt-Shine)

0:21:05 - Concilivm - A Monument in Darkness (Iron Bonehead)

1:01:47 - Dismember - “Misanthropic” fr. Death Metal (Nuclear Blast, 1997) (Dismember is seemingly embroiled in some sort of rights dispute right now, but used copies of this can be found everywhere)

1:04:46 - Evocator - Ancient Cataclysm (Independent)

1:51:39 - Outro - Colosseum - “Weathered” fr. Chapter 1: Delirium (Firedoom Music, 2007) (Out of print and quite expensive now, but available on streaming services)
