66 – Linguistic Heuristic

This week we get weirdly political and anthropological. Well, maybe not weirdly. We are weird dudes after all. Not a lot of news, so we shitpost about Wintersun a bit more. Mini balls-deep on Mastodon while discussing their new single. We talk about a bunch of metal from places around the world that we normally aren’t well attuned with. Like Wisdom Eyes (thanks Bandcamp!), Violet Cold, and Sanatana. Also more Psykup, Eden gushes over Spectral Lore, we discuss the Ne Obliviscaris news. Then we bring back underrated releases with Gire’s self titled. Finally, cool people time gets weird. Enjoy!

65 – Time II Stop Jari

A week full of fun times! We talk about Wintersun shenanigans yet again, Tidal shenanigans, Bandcamp successes, then we talk about new music or content from a bunch of artists. Opeth, Leprous with Ihsahn, Psykup, Betraying the Martyrs, Born of Osiris, Dodecahedron, Disperse, Virvum, Six Feet Under, Arch Enemy, Quasarborn, Oni, Mayhem, Sunless, Pallbearer, Adam Young, and Mastodon. We also talk about this list of power metal in 2016, some cool people stuff. Also, take a look at this gofundme of a victim of crowdkilling (gfm link here) at a Code Orange show, and check out me and Eden’s new role-playing podcast!

We’re talking about a band that mixes Mr.Bungle, SikTh and The Dillinger Escape Plan into one messy, irreverent, and extremely violent version of chaos. When I wrote about them back then, I believed it was posthumously; they had been quiet for years and there was no sign they were coming back. Well, now they have! Out of nowhere, Psykup have released a new track and announced an upcoming album, Ctrl + Alt + Fuck. And you bet your ass the track is amazing as well. Head on down below to listen to it, pick your jaw up from the floor and then we’ll talk.

Hey! Listen To Psykup!

Judging by my last Listen to This! post, clarification is in order: the only variable we take into account when we write one of these is whether the band we are listening to is good or not. It can be contemporary bands, vetern bands, long dead bands or whatever. As…
