It's Black Metal Week!

Black Metal is a sub-genre of Metal typified by its usually raw or under-produced sound and Satanic/rebellious aesthetic, as well as simplistic guitar phrases and under-accentuated rhythmic dimensions which allow more power for the atmospheric, detached and wandering riffs. Vocals are often higher pitched than Death Metal (or, "screams" rather than Death Metal's "grunts", speaking in slang terms) and can sound detached or unnervingly direct.

^ If you want to go for something more mellow after all that Black Metal, why not try :-

Where's Tore at?

It's Canterbury Scene Week!

The Canterbury scene is largely defined by a set of musicians and bands with intertwined memberships. These are not tied by very strong musical similarities, but a certain whimsicality, touches of psychedelia, rather abstruse lyrics, and a use of improvisation derived from jazz are common elements in their work.[1] “The real essence of 'Canterbury Sound' is the tension between complicated harmonies, extended improvisations, and the sincere desire to write catchy pop songs.” “In the very best Canterbury music...the musically silly and the musically serious are juxtaposed in an amusing and endearing way.” [3]

Is voting on double albums which may or may not be depressing: doesn't really matter. Come make a decision for March!

It's Witch House Week!

Witch house (sometimes referred to as drag) is a music genre. The term witch house started out as a joke that was originally used to describe occult-based house music by Travis Egedy (commonly known by the stage name Pictureplane) and his friends in 2009.[1][2][3] As the internet meme grew in popularity, shortly after being pitched to Pitchfork Media,[4] blogs and other mainstream music press began to actively continue the use of the term for marketing purposes, and thus now the label is loosely used to describe a subgenre of industrial music.

It's EBM Week!

The term EBM (short for Electronic Body Music) was first used by Kraftwerk in the late 1970’s, but more popularly by EBM pioneers Front 242 in the 1980’s to describe their sound, which was more beat-driven and melodic than what was typical of Industrial music at the time. EBM is characterized by repetitive (or danceable) rhythms and undistorted vocals. Although EBM is considered more accessible and dance floor friendly, it still keeps with the experimental and thematic qualities of Industrial music. Some of the most notable EBM acts are Front 242 and Nitzer Ebb.
