Chapter Forty-Eight: Goths, Rivetheads, and Everyone in Between

Just like the title says, this month we’ve got a bunch of music that falls all along the spectrum of Dark Underground, from the lo-fi spookiness of The Kentucky Vampires to highly-produced industrial from Shotgun Messiah and 51 Miles Away. Plus, new music from Fenix F, J:Dead, and more!
