Chapter One: Studies in Anger and Sadness

You’re listening to the inaugural chapter of The Arcane Machine, a podcast sharing music from goth/ industrial culture and beyond. Chapter 1 will serve as an introduction to your hosts, Ed Wilson (PixelTunes Radio, The VGMbassy, The Impulse Project, Audio PanicRoom) and Justin Schneider (XVGM Radio,) who grew up in and around the goth scene in the New York/ New Haven area. For those not familiar with the music, consider this an introduction to the type of songs we’ll be playing on the show. For those closet vampires out there, you’re sure to be fond of some of these selections, and you may learn some new facts along the way.

The Arcane Machine will be a monthly show with supplemental content on Facebook, Twitter, and Discord throughout each month. If you like what you hear, please visit the artists’ pages linked below and buy some music!
