#159 | Track Reviews | Knock Over City, ZOMBIESHARK!, Firelink, Bell Witch & Aerial Ruin, Gaytheist & Intercourse, and Defeated Sanity


Hello! Welcome to the pilot episode of a new podcast series we’re testing out here at the rickety FCU dwelling titled “Track Reviews”. The goal is to provide you some quick insights into fresh(er) tracks, EPs, and/or splits that have recently made their way onto the web. In traditional fashion, we plucked a smattering of disparate tones and vibes to keep the conversation tilted and dynamic. Heavy indie, funeral doom, cybergrind, and slamming death metal are but a few genres discussed. And to make matters a bit more topsy turvy, we enlisted the third voice of review writer Derek Paul, not only to intermittently derail the conversation into Dark Souls diatribes but to add some undiluted frankness to the mix. 

Below you will find the list of tracks, EPs, and splits we discuss during this episode in order of appearance. Bandcamp embedded players, social media links, and a handful of other cursory details are provided too. As this episode is a pilot, we do not have a publication frequency ironed out quite yet; however, our current thought is to produce these about once per month. If there are some new tracks you’d like to hear us dissect, please don’t hesitate to ping us either by email or on our social media channels. We sincerely hope you enjoy this new series and we’d love to hear any feedback (positive, negative, indifferent) you may have about it. Thank you for tuning in.
