'In Which e.V. grapples with The Dread Laryngal Frog'
"...in which e.V. triumphs over the station's possessed, wayward & insubordinate ninja on-air computer #1."
Do you know how many bands are out there? Me neither.. Waaaay too many with little talent, it often seems. In fact, I would say that most bands should simply give it up. But hereabouts we like to play the true artists - the ones that kick serious ass..
LISTEN TO THIS WEEK'S SHOW!!
The Show Playlist
So this week we have 2 very cool bands for you. First up is the Finnish Melodic death/folk metal band Frosttide's album 'Awakening', in Hour 1.. Joni and the rest of you - you seriously rock! \w/ Perkele! Ihana!
In Hour 2 you will hear a bunch of Within Temptation plus we also feature A Light In The Sky, the new album from Roanoke, Virgina alt-rock/metallers, Madrone . You can hear half of this excellent album in hour 2 and almost all the rest (minus the last track) in Hour 5. Our playlist may kick serious ass e.V.'s memory, not so much... So many band names, so little time... MaDrone, not Marone & so no damn wonder I couldn't find it! Apologies and big thanks to the bands for making such shockingly great music. :-) Rock on!
In Hour 3, our dearest Lady Death send some beautiful acoustic tuneage for you on this, your end of St. Patrick's Day show, 2014. She selected these from the soundtrack of the new period drama TV series 'REIGN'.
The Sepiachord Band Of The Week is Scott Bradlee's brilliant cover band Postmodern JukeBox, who gleefully stand mainstream rock and pop standards on their head via genius arrangements. This week's Helsinki Spotlight Artists are Cherry and the Night, who I first heard of because of Hard Rock Cafe.'s Hard Rock Rising Global Battle Of The Bands. The ReverbNation Artist of the Week is rocker & singer-songwriter Hannu Lepisto, who has a new single out "Abuse Me To Soothe Me" available on Bandcamp - with 2 bonus tracks - you can hear one of those. bonus tracks plus the single itself on this week's show.

FEATURED This Week: Anydoll (Finland) "Electruc Heart" LP , Janani (USA) "Three-Step System" EP , Electric Ruin (s/t) EP, King Swan (S/T) EP (Both From Canada)
Almost the Ides of March & e.V. is back - along with her voice!. ;) New music for you, from all over the place. Faroese and Greek doom, Israeli 'oriental' metal, Russian goth rock, Swedish-Dutch darkwave, some very fine Finnish, American, and Canadian stuff of various genres. As per usual, mostly metal, hard rock and electro, but hour 5 features some seriously great vocal and writing talent from Toronto that sits solidly outside, genre-wise, what usually gets played here.
Hour 3 Feature: Hard rock cut with a jazzy feel from Florida alt-rock songstress, Janani. on her debut EP "Three-Step System"; Finnish electropop rockers Anydoll's LP "Electric Heart", available for free download on their website. After that some brand new rock from One Pretty Minute and Saints Of Rebellion
In Hour 4: The Reverbation Band of the Week is Madrone, altrock from Roanoke Virginia, USA.
This week's Helsinki Spotlight Artists are Siberian Jay, and Indi Loveless.. You can see their videos here. , to the left.
Tyr's magnificent "The Lay Of Our Love" has a newish but not-so magnificent vid featuring the ugliest damned Viking I have ever seen, and a ginormous and pissed off statue of Skuld, one of the Norns. Why they didn't forgo the bruiser and just have Heri or Gunnar or Terji be the Viking is beyond me. :-)
Hour 4 & 5: On with the heavy! Stoner metal supreme from Ottawa's own Electric Ruin and King Swan, both with self-totled EP's out on Bandcamp. and both finalists in the Carleton U Battle of The Bands, co-sponsored by CKCU-FM! Plus single silliness from Joel Martin (Toronto). And we end it all on a sweet, soulful note from Kendal Thompson, also from Toronto..
e.V., Queen Of Doom
Hostess of e.V.'s Underground, CKCU-FM, 93.1
