Today CVLT Nation is bringing you another mixtape for your mind…Sonic Cathedrals Vol CXXVI by OWLFOOD! Check out this mix of eclectic tunes below and enjoy!
This can be a difficult process. Picking sounds that mean the most to you and the music you create. Turns out it was illuminating and enjoyable.
Huge thanks to Sean and CVLT NATION for all the support and asking for us to make this mix tape.
Owlfood as a project is most satisfying because of our individual eclectic taste as music fans. We’ve been friends forever and we innately understand how each others’ tastes filters its way into our music. This mix tape is an example of what we might listen to on a more constant basis, essentially guitar based music. But our listening definitely enters the realms of jazz, electronic music, minimalism, noise, field recordings… it’s a constant adapting sound, vibrating forever and ever and ever…

CVLT Nation is stoked to present a mixtape for your mind – Sonic Cathedrals Vol. CXXV by Harrow! Harrow is playing alongside the almighty Wolvserpent, Haggatha and Druden this Saturday Oct. 26th at the Astoria in Vancouver…hope to catch you there!
For this mixtape we took the chance to showcase the many diverse styles that influence both our approach and musical content. The tracks are sequenced such a way as to weave together these seemingly dissimilar influences and change genres gradually instead of suddenly. Each track adds something essential to the next until the style of music has changed completely. We’re happy to call many of these artists friends and we hope you will enjoy all of the music offered as much as we have.

The Southwest Terror Fest is almost upon us, and today we’re getting you ready for it with a killer mixtape from Los Angeles’ infamous ACxDC. Sonic Cathedrals Vol. CXXIV ACxDC was curated by Sergio Amalfitano and it’s an A to Z of what you need to listen to!
I’ve been going to shows since about 98-99. Ever since I started going I’ve been collecting vinyl and taking in as many shows as I could within my means. It’s a little bit difficult coming up with a mixtape when I just want to share my entire music library from the last 15 years of gathering music. Hell half the music I have isn’t on a computer. So I narrowed it down to some stuff I think either are basics everyone into extreme music should know or are overlooked gems that might not see too much exposure. Its an eclectic mix of grind, sludge, hardcore, thrash, d-beat, powerviolence, etc. Some of it’s old, some of it’s new. Either way this gives you a pretty decent incite into what I’m into. Its what happens when you grow in a scene like LA.
We’re very excited and honored to be part of the Cvlt Nation Mixtape Series!! We all love slow and heavy music and while there have been a lot of great bands cultivating lots of great mixes of styles, we feel that grind and crust are underrepresented. So we would like to present to you our mixtape of Things That Grind and rock the D-Beat!! Enjoy!
See you all on the road this October!!

I haven’t ever been good at mixing tapes, especially when they are supposed to outline a certain topic, and I most probably have no sense for combining different artists in an impressive way. Therefore, people may consider this mixtape atmospherically rubbish. I’m fine with such an assumption, since my actual intention is to give a rough compendium of what has formed and influenced RED APOLLO. These 17 bands and musicians have either been a part of our musical development for more than a decade, formed our sound relevantly or have just been nice and charming when we shared a stage together. Enjoy!
