In our fifth episode of Voices From Corners Unknown, we discuss the strangely fantastical self-titled debut from Buenos Aires blackened d-beat/crust outfit Medium, Deadly Probe’s isolate and morbid space ambient journal entry EXPEDITION n. D34D5P4C3, and the final release from Vancouver atmospheric progressive sludge juggernauts Astrakhan, Without New Growth Process is Bloodshed.
You can download the audio in the player above or listen in the embedded video below. Beneath the video are the artists we discuss in chronological order of our conversation.
