CVLT Nation is ultra excited to announce that the Sonic Cathedrals Mixtape Series Vol. XXXVIII Curated by Mitochondrion has arrived. This band are so killer in their own right that it cool to listen to the music that they respect. Mitochondrion also used this mix tape to share with the world that their musical interest are broader than what people might think.I really feel that Sonic Cathedrals Mixtape Series Vol. XXXVIII can best be described by the band themselves.So below hear what Shawn Hache has to say about this mix tape plus the you will find the download & streaming link….Just make sure to blast this mix tape until your bones crack!
The first half of these tracks represents music that was specifically and directly an inspiration on the Mitochondrion sound that came to be. While a lot of these releases do not seem that old, it was an interesting time right before this kind of black/death metal became ubiquitous online through downloads and youtube, and random chance mail-order was still a thing. If the description was good and a friend recommended it, then it was worth buying. Not everything needed to be sampled before purchased. When seeing a Revenge or Conqueror shirt was the rarest sight, and you talked to people based on just that alone. These are releases that stand the test of time and still are influential on our sound.
Next is a good sample of like-minded bands that we respect, friends of ours creating hellish attacks, and personal favourites that will never die. The music here all carries a unique element that is impossible to put your finger on, but clearly perceptible. The compositions are generally more unique than most, but more than anything the inspiration and conviction right through loud and clear. Vitriolic and warped to the last.
