After Hourz:

  • By the time you read this, I will be laying on my bed on drugs and eating ice cream recovering from surgery. As a result this show had to be prerecorded. Regardless, I hope there isn’t much drop-off between the live and pre-recorded show. Maybe this show is among the best you’ve heard in a while, mainly because this playlist was mainly sculpted by yours truly for once. That said, a genuine shoutout to Terrorsquid for being on the ball with making the playlist each week (except this one because I had to rush it to record right away) the past few months.
  • You can probably tell my paws are all over this playlist with the sheer amount of thrash I put in there. In fairness, some of these bands barely get played because Terrorsquid understandably isn’t as familiar with that genre as I am.
  • I was told that if I were to actually start liking power metal, Iced Earth would be the band that would get me started. I gave the newest album a chance and it just didn’t do much for me. There were some worthy enough songs but ultimately we decided to feature yet another atmospheric black metal band Fellwarden. Maybe I should check out Iced Earth’s older stuff instead.
  • Father’s Day is coming up, so do something nice for your dad. If not, listen to that Immolation song again.
  • Speaking of atmospheric black, if you’ve noticed a dramatic uptick of that lately, you can thank or direct your scorn at Terrorsquid. Personally I find good atmospheric to be pleasant and there’s no better genre to listen to while passively doing something else. For example, I read most of The Martian while listening Darkspace I-III and it was great. That said, having exponentially increased my intake of atmospheric black metal (ABM) in my short time here at Hourz, I think the marketplace of ABM as becoming saturated. Mediocre ABM  sounds like the musical equivalent of running in place for 10 minutes. Terrorsquid casts a much wider net on this than I do, and I know some of our listeners love ABM, so we’ll continue to play it.

That’s all folks. See you next Thursday,

-Spaceman
