Podcast Episode 62 – Christian Death – Valor Kand Part 2

MP3 DOWNLOAD [Right-Click and Save As]

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.

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).

There’s no bones about it, Dr.Sanders and Cameron take a trip to visit the family…The Skeletal Family. Specifically the era of the band with singer Anne Marie Hurst. They were “promised” a lot with these records and they hope their efforts aren’t “futile”. They examine the albums Burning Oil (1984), Futile Combat (1985), and the compilation Eternal (2016).

On this possession-filled episode, Dr.Sanders and Cameron are visited by three movies that lurk in the shadows. The Exorcist and the two sequels it spawned vary wildly in quality, but just may hold some great surprises for those who decide to venture into their worlds. Can you survive these horrific reviews of The Exorcist (1973), The Exorcist II: Heretic (1977), and The Exorcist III (1990)!? May the power of GothCast compel you!

In this fast and frightening episode of GothCast, Dr.Sanders and Cameron take a look at the beginning of Danzig’s career as well as the birth of an entire music genre when they put the Misfits under the microscope. Horror punk may not be strictly goth music, but it’s certainly spooky and loved by many in the scene. They examine the albums Static Age, Evilive, Walk Among Us, and Earth A.D as well as the strange events and legal troubles that plagued the band.

The Addams Family [1991] Movie Review

We’re finally like halfway through covering this franchise…who knew there was so much Addams? This movie is considered a goth staple at this point that I’m sure is loved by many of you watching. Honestly this look at The Addams Family products has been interesting as I really didn’t know just how much existed before I started this series.

Bryan, Dr.Sanders, and guest star Cameron join together the derelict pieces of their scattered opinions to creature a horrific episode focusing on three different adaptations of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein. This time we have the 1931 Universal classic Frankenstein, the 1957 Hammer Horror masterpiece The Curse of Frankenstein…and that one from the 90’s starring Robert De Niro.

The Cure – Disintegration Album Review [Video]

One of the most popular album associated with goth music, a pinnacle of effects laden sad music, a collection of Robert Smith’s tear-drenched jingles resulting from a midlife crisis…well maybe something like that.

Did you know I first started reviewing The Cure’s albums in 2015? I can’t believe it’s been almost 5 years. I think outside of the podcast I’ve covered a total of 2 (Three Imaginary Boys & 17 Seconds), but I’ve done different books and other topics relating to the band. I’m always hesitant to cover their albums because it’s such a popular topic and they mean so much to fans.

My Top 5 Books of 2019 [Video]

This whole video came about because I read A LOT, but there are certain books I’m not sure I feel like dedicating a video to. It honestly may have just been an excuse to talk about TekWar. I enjoy doing these more casual videos as it feels like much more of an actual conversation with everyone watching.
