ha thank you Matt; I normally have it right in front of me so I don't have to recall by memory... but I totally forgot to set it up
Decker 10:23:29 PM
Hails, friends \m/

Decker 10:41:10 PM
Cathedral - Equilibrium, per chance?
KFAI (host) 10:42:36 PM
I'll try and pull it up!
KFAI (host) 10:44:38 PM
I've got a nice doom set later on next hour--can I play it then, or do you wanna hear it right away?
James Schmidt 10:46:26 PM
Howdy y'all
Decker 10:48:33 PM
KFAI (host) 10:49:15 PM
Howdy James!
KFAI (host) 10:49:50 PM
Decker--I'll put it in with the other doom stuff then; got another request to get to first but you're second in line
Decker 10:50:19 PM
Absolutely ZERO stress, do what you doin! \m/
KFAI (host) 10:50:44 PM
ha no stress at all; it'll fit in perfectly I think
Decker 10:52:01 PM

Decker 10:57:21 PM
I might be thinking of another similarily named band, but didn't Genghis Tron used to me more experimental and avantgarde? Or was I just a newbie at the time I stumbled on them? This slaps, don't get me wrong!
KFAI (host) 10:58:15 PM
No you're thinking of the same band! They've reaaaally changed their sound on this new album; I love it and their older (more electronic, more grind-y) stuff, but for different reasons
KFAI (host) 10:58:25 PM
this is their first album with a live drummer, ha
KFAI (host) 10:59:38 PM
it's also their first album in 13 years, so yeah... kind of a fresh start, I suppose
Decker 10:59:46 PM
Ahhhh!, Yeah, thought their earlieer stuff was more electronic and mathy, I def dug this one you played!
KFAI (host) 11:01:12 PM
head's-up if you listen to the new album: that track I just played is probably one of the *most* metal songs on the album, so just go into it expecting more post-rock/shoegazey type stuff than anything really noisy or heavy
KFAI (host) 11:01:21 PM
very good, but not nearly as metal as before
Decker 11:01:49 PM
Coll, I'm def gonna check it, didn't know they had a new one and dug their previous stuff
Decker 11:02:09 PM
And all those buzzwords you used I am into, heh
Decker 11:16:48 PM
WOW, this bangs
Matthew Gurrola 11:17:47 PM
Yeah love those horns.
KFAI (host) 11:18:29 PM
the weird off-beat rising horn bit in the verses is such a cool addition
Decker 11:18:44 PM
That percussion is gnarly af
Decker 11:20:50 PM
KFAI (host) 11:21:23 PM
hell yeah; great request
Decker 11:26:52 PM
We used to put this album on just closing time when I worked at Burger King when I was 16. If we had a clean store before the album was over we were thrilled. Probably unnecessary and TMI, but fuck it. Thing holds a special spot for me.
KFAI (host) 11:28:42 PM
the Cathedral album? Or this UTMDTM tape?
Decker 11:29:53 PM
Decker 11:30:14 PM
I'm WAY too old for it to be the UTMDTM lol
KFAI (host) 11:31:24 PM
I figured, but I had to ask!
Decker 11:37:05 PM
Oh shit hahaha, I did NOT put those pieces together!
KFAI (host) 11:38:57 PM
the big lebowski reference?
Decker 11:39:24 PM
Yeah, totally seen the dub and just didn't put the pieces together, AMAZING
KFAI (host) 11:39:36 PM
I love that bit of trivia
KFAI (host) 11:41:01 PM
Also if anybody follows the (non-metal) indie scene, "Stranger in the Alps" is the name of Phoebe Bridgers' debut album. That reference gets around, so it seems
Decker 11:42:39 PM
I never even blinked at it other than how ridiculous it was lol, astounding
Matthew Gurrola 11:46:52 PM
This song is probably gonna induce one last big snowstorm this spring.
Matthew Gurrola 11:57:12 PM
Hail Cannibal Corpse!
KFAI (host) 11:58:07 PM
hail yeah
Matthew Gurrola 11:58:34 PM
See ya \m/
KFAI (host) 11:58:46 PM
See ya! Thanks for listening and chatting
Decker 11:59:09 PM
Thanks for tunes and proper hosting! \m/
