Sonic Cathedrals Vol. CXX Skeletonwitch
Here is my mix tape. It’s always difficult to make one of these. I used to make real mix tapes for people but I think if you handed someone a tape today they would ask “what the fuck is this?”
I tried to stay away from really mainstream stuff to make it interesting and maybe turn some of you onto some new stuff, but let a few mainstream gems fall through the cracks. It’s a healthy mix of Black Metal, Rock and Punk. It’s representative of what I listen to and hopefully it puts you in a really shitty and grim mood. Enjoy!

Assuming that everyone’s already heard Naplam Death and Extreme Noise Terror I thought it best to merely provide a collection of sounds off the hard-drive of this computer that I like, and that I think other people will also like. There is no real context for any of the following other than that premise.
CVLT Nation presents a killer fucking mix leading up to our show in Bristol this weekend with You’re Not Human – Sonic Cathedrals Vol. CXVIII HUMAN CULL! If you need a pick me up that will take you through everything you need to hear, then hit play below and download this mother!

When I started doing these deathrock mixtapes in early 2012, my point was to illustrate that guitar-driven, dark punk in the deathrock tradition was alive and well, still evolving, despite some folks’ stubborn perception of this genre as being “old school.” (And, actually, as a genre that came into its own in the 80s, it’s younger than industrial or some other types of dark music.) Like the broader genre categories of rock ‘n roll, country, or even the blues, the deathrock subgenre is indeed “old school,” and also like those types of music, it isn’t.
So, here’s yet another new assortment of bands, including tracks by what I call “legacy” dark (post-)punk bands like UK Decay, Killing Joke, and The Damned, bands that are still alive and well and who are still cranking out surprisingly good new material. Among the newer bands, Finland has a strong showing here: Masquerade and Silent Scream reassert the primacy of Scandinavia in this genre; and new 12 inchers by bands like Belgrado, Deathcharge, Catholic Spit, and others also reaffirm the innovation that continues in this style of dark music.
This deathrock mix is not meant as an exhaustive or definitive or authoritative compilation. It’s supposed to serve as a springboard for your own sonic exploration. Some of these bands may not consider themselves to be “deathrock” at all; Arctic Flowers, for example, describe their sound as “a mix of punk, deathrock, post punk, and goth.” All of the songs below resonate strongly with, and are relevant to, the development of deathrock/goth-punk/gothic rock in the modern era as a whole, however.
Tracklist below the jump cut. Enjoy.

CVLT Nation is stoked to release Sonic Cathedrals Vol. CXIV by VATTNET VISKAR today! This is their 2nd mixtape for us, and we thought it was fitting for them to do a part two since their epic new album, Sky Swallower, is out via Century Media Sept. 3rd in the US and Sept. 9th in Europe. Plus they will be touring the month of September, so check the dates below! So in preparation, sit back, hit play and download!
For our second CVLT Nation mixtape, we wanted to explore a bit. Picking songs that influence us in specific ways is never an easy task, but we came up with something we’re very proud of. We chose these songs as a representation of influences we drew from during the writing and recording process of Sky Swallower. Music is emotional, and emotional cues can be taken from any musical source. Like our last mix, much of this isn’t metal.
