Erdve Guest DJ Special – Experimental sludge outfit Erdve unleashed their new album Savigaila via Season Of Mist last month. Crushing insanity drips atmospherically out of every crack of the record, toying with elements from hardcore, sludge, and black metal. When Erdve formed in the Lithuanian capital of Vilnius in 2016, the band had a clear aesthetic vision of creating a unique heavy sound that experimented with elements from hardcore, sludge, and black metal – yet was not bound by any unwritten “rules” surrounding those genres. Members had already been active in their local scene and performed in various acts such as Nyksta, Sraigés Efektas, and Spirale. A self-made tape version of their debut made its rounds in underground circles and the Lithuanians received the rare honour of being picked straight out of the dreaded demo pile by virtue of their musical strength and compelling quality. Savigaila, which translates as “self-pity,” revolves around overcoming the unsettling challenges of reality. GIMME METAL is happy to welcome the band for their first ever DJ takeover!
Wormwitch Guest DJ Special – Stacked full of grandiose melody, tempered by true organic heavy metal anthems, Wormwitch’s latest full-length Wolf Hex is a modern occult, future classic. Distinctly Canadian, distinctly diabolical, and distinctly Wormwitch, the ten-track album seethes with visceral blackened death metal delivered at a relentless pace, conjuring mysticism and magick at every turn. In the midst of a full US tour (see their Facebook page) Wormwitch takes pause to craft two hours of faves for GIMME METAL. Don’t miss it!
