It wasn’t when I was standing in Ramalama Records in Toledo, or when I took my stack of goodies up to the counter at Flat, Black and Circular in Lansing, but by the time I left Days of the Doomed II in Wisconsin, I knew I had enough to make a new podcast from all the assembled bits of Buried Treasure. I guess it’s not so dissimilar from the last podcast, but instead of covering two weeks in Europe, it covers about three days in the Midwest. Wow. Say it like that and the trip seems pretty intense.
And so it was. The resulting podcast follows suit. You’ll find it heavy on the doom — perhaps somewhat predictably — with tracks from fest performers like Blizaro, Orodruin, Sanctus Bellum and Earthen Grave, and there’s a lot of newer stuff featured from what I picked up. If you missed the Apostle of Solitude stream the other day, their “Die Vicar Die” from the new Demo 2012 shows up here, but even some of the stuff I picked up record shopping falls under a doomier mindset — see new Candlemass, which starts us off, as well as Paradise Lost, Unorthodox, Saturnalia Temple and Solitude Aeturnus. Must have just been the kind of headspace I was in.
Either way, listening back to it now, I think it’s a cool mix. How many times in your life are you going to go from Amebix to Pelican in a one-two punch? Six? Well, let this be one of them. You might notice that around the two-hour mark, things start to get a little tripped out, with Diagonal, Funkadelic, Hawkwind, Six Organs of Admittance, Amon Düül II and Master Musicians of Bukkake. That’s on purpose. By the time I was about three hours out on my drive home, I was so doomed out that all I wanted to listen to was psych and drone and weirdo stuff, so those were the records I put on. As that was something of the trip I hadn’t yet covered — about the only thing — I wanted to make sure that side of things was represented. Total coverage, dude.
But whether you’re mired in psychedelic indulgences or doomly woes, I hope you enjoy listening. The final tally was 26 songs in two hours and 51 minutes, which is fitting, since I didn’t actually want it to be long enough for a 15-hour drive.
