E62: Christian Death - Valor Kand Era Part 2

This reunion episode brings back Robbie Gore as the original GothCast duo break down some lesser talked about albums from the Valor Kand era of Christian Death. It's one of the more interesting eras of the group as two competing versions of the band were releasing material sometimes within the same year. They cover the albums Insanus, Ultio, Proditio, Misericordiaque (1990), Sexy Death God (1994), Prophecies (1996), and well...one more from 1998. This one gets a little strange, but that's nothing new to this podcast.

E61: Samhain

It's time to rock with death again as Dr.Sanders and Cameron tackle Danzig's project after the Misfits and before his solo band Danzig. A much beloved, but sometimes overlooked era with tons of reverb and songs that sometimes sound like they could be the theme to an 80's slasher movie. You don't have to wait for "November" to come this year because this episode is "Final-ly Descending" to the podcast world. They take a look at Initium (1984), Unholy Passion (1985), Samhain III: November-Coming-Fire (1986), and Final Descent (1990).
