In episode twelve, we mull over the cavernous, nasty self-titled debut LP of the Portland hardcore/d-beat outfit, Pissblood. We discuss the latest crushing behemoth from Belgium’s blackened doom/ambient/post-rock conjurers Hemelbestormer titled A Ring of Blue Light and also muse over Intercourse’s infectiously energetic Everything is Pornography When You’ve Got an Imagination.
Thank you so much for listening and your continued support. Let us know what you think about each of these releases below and please feel free to leave us some album suggestions for future episodes.
