SPOTLIGHT: Cronesmoon/Gulag/Ananta/Ekadzati

A few days ago I made a post about one-woman black metal bands, and how there are enough of them to create a whole episode of Hymns to the Dead Goddess. It proved to be particularly popular on both Facebook and Tumblr. OK, I get it. So I will start working on that episode soon.

But in the meantime, let me post about some of these one-woman black metal projects I know, starting with one I introduced in Episode 42, Ekadzati. Well, actually, this is about the woman behind Ekadzati, as that project is now defunct--but don't fret, she's awfully busy! As her Bandcamp page states: 

Zareen Katherine Price performs black metal as Cronesmoon, death metal as Gulag, and dark ambient as Anatra. Previously Ekadzati. Always more projects on the way.

I've gotten to know Zareen over the past year and it's safe to say she is quite dedicated to underground metal and to self-expression. Plus, this is pretty damn good music, very raw and primal, but sophisticated and complex.

She has two releases that, together, can summarize her musical output. The first, VII MMXIII--Roman numerals for the date of release, July 2013--includes what I believe are the last two Ekadzati songs, the introduction of Gulag, and a sample of Anatra's sound.

Four months later, she released XI MMXIII--with tracks from Gulag and Cronesmoon, Zareen's newest black metal project.

I'll be posting more one-woman black metal projects soon. They'll have the tag "OWBM" so you can find them easier.

So as it turns out, the Prophet Lilith got so excited recording this holiday "gift" that she failed to mention that this episode started out with a Halloween/Autumn theme. Yeah. Merry Christmas. Because Doro said so.

Also, she failed to mention that one of her girlfriends, a DJ in SecondLife, gave her inspiration for a whole new approach. On behalf of everyone tired of Lilith not posting an update, thank you, Lysana.

I'm still struggling, although right now with health issues, but I haven't given up on the podcast or on all you listeners. I hope you all have a happy holidays, and here's hoping for a much louder 2013!

UPDATE: Almost, But Not Quite, Ready To Rock

So the replacement hardware is in place, and my computer is happier than it's been for months. I can even see my music library without any problems.

However, iTunes seems to have a case of amnesia--not only does it not have the playlists for the unreleased episodes, it's lost some of the playlsits for released episodes too.

Long story short--I'll need to start the unreleased episodes from scratch. But I'm in a position to do so, and I think a new episode should be ready by the beginning of October.

UPDATE: Replacement Hardware On Its Way!

Without going into details: After a couple months of financial fiascos, I've managed to secure enough cash to purchase new hard drives (as that's the hardware that failed on me). I still need to find out if any of the old data is recoverable--I haven't had a chance to focus on that, but I'm getting close to having the opportunity. If it is, I should be able to get the podcast up and running again in a couple of weeks. This is wonderful news and I'm really hoping you're all as excited about the return of the podcast as I am. While there have been times when I've felt burned out, I've also missed recording and mastering it. There's a thrill I get when I realize that a particular episode flows from one awesome song to another, and when I find out that I've turned someone on to a new favorite band, it makes all the hard work and expense worthwhile.

At any rate, it'll be magnificent to have this podcast up and running in time for its two-year anniversary, which is about a month away. Hope you agree!

If you've been wondering why I haven't released any new episodes since June, it's because my system keeps giving me serious headaches, with one drive or another refusing to work. Right now I'm not sure when I can get everything back up and running. I have not given up on this podcast, but until I have a working system, I really have no choice but to wait. The whole situation is very frustrating for me, and I presume it is equally frustrating for those of you who enjoy the podcast. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

If you recently listened to Episode 41, you might've noticed that the last minute of the UZALA song "Wardrums" had some people talking. I have no idea how it got in there, but it appears to have originated in a glitch that occurred during final mixing of the episode. I remixed, re-encoded, and re-uploaded the episode, so that should not be a problem moving forward. I apologize to UZALA and to the podcast listenership for that.

SPOTLIGHT: Awakening

I've always loved the women of metal and punk, but I didn't get serious about focusing on women in extreme music until the late 90s. The reason? I had found a CD in the record store called Awakening: Females in Extreme Music, released by Dwell Records.

This CD was, to put it mildly, inspiring. Not that the CD was particularly great--there's a few week tracks that I didn't care for. But it revealed a possibility unclear to me at that point: Women were already in the extreme music underground and making, in many cases, really powerful music. This was my introductin to bands like Thorr's Hammer, Noothgrush, 13, November's Doom, Ebonsight, Damad, Opera IX, Acrostichon, Demonic Christ, and more. It was enlightening--and by and large, brutal.

It was because of the Awakening CD that I began researching women in extreme music on my own. Research was slow, but thanks to the Internet it was to become easier, with sites cropping up to document discoveries and social networking groups to share information. I suspect that, with a few exceptions (Metal Maidens magazine, for one--more on that in a later Spotlight) every fan site for women in the metal and punk undergrounds owes a debt to this CD.

Awakening, indeed!

Incidentally, you can still find this CD easily--you can even buy legitimate MP3 copies of the music. I'll leave that as an exercise for the listener, however, since I don't care to promote one vendor over another.

The Prophet Lilith has no excuses for why this episode is so late, only a promise she'll try to do an extra episode in May to help make up for lost time. She also has no excuses for why she repeated the Ancestral Legacy track from Episode 37 as she normally checks to reduce the chance of repeating a band, let alone a song, in most of the episodes to date. Finally, she makes no excuses for talking in the third person--it's mainly because she finds the first person annoying. :P

A couple of weeks ago a listener asked me on the podcast Facebook page if I was aware of the Stay Female Fronted blog. Of course--they have been one of the many sources I've used when researching women in extreme music! The blog focuses mainly on the metal and punk underground, which is part of its charm. Unfortunately it hasn't been updated in several months, but it's such a treasure trove of bands that I may go back to it and see if there's anyone I missed at some point. 

Stay Female Fronted provides links to official band pages, which is always handy. They also provide links downloads on various sites, which may give the appearance of supporting piracy. Frankly, I strongly suggest you find legitimate copies of the music if at all possible, so you can better support these women and their music. But there's always that ancient demo that nobody, not even the band, has for sale anymore, so I can't condemn all the download links automatically.

First, welcome to all new listeners! We just broke a record in downloads per day, and I hope that you're enjoying the podcast.

I apologize for not getting a new episode out in the past week. I've been fairly busy with updating the podcast blog, Facebook/Google+ pages, and introducing a CafePress store, but I have NOT been forgetting about the music! In fact this weekend I got some fresh music from some bands never played on the podcast before, and I'll be putting together a new episode in the next few days.

And yes, in case the above comment didn't make it clear, we now have Hymns to the Dead Goddess t-shirts in sizes to fit nearly every shape of body (except maybe little kids and babies--but let me know if you want them covered too!) We also have stickers, buttons, magnets, and other ways to show your appreciation for the podcast. Check them out at http://cafepress.com/deadgoddess and thank you in advance for showing the world you support the women of extreme music!

Finally, many thanks to the lovely and talented Angie Decay, who provided the new podcast logo and artwork! It's appropriately sick and disturbing and 100% metal--perfect!

I'd like to start providing a spotlight on notable resources for fans of this podcast. I hope you enjoy!

The site Female Fronted Heavy Metal: 1976 - 1989 describes itself as "an attempt at exhaustively documenting female fronted metal bands who recorded at least one heavy metal track before 1990." And "exhaustively" is the right word! Even though the project is still growing and still looking for better or more obscure recordings, they already have fifteen CDs worth of music--about a whole day's worth!--covering the gamut of metal styles at the time, from classic heavy metal to thrash and power metal and the dawn of death metal.

Bands covered in this project include--but is by no means limited to--Ice Age, Lee Aaron, Detente, Chastain, Warbride, Holy Moses, Bitch, Derketa, Plasmatics, Rock Goddess, Sentinel Beast, Hellion, The Great Kat, Znowhite, Girlschool, Warlock, Phantom Blue, Megace, Acrostichon, Mortifera, and System Decay. Even with my own exhaustive efforts to find women in the metal genre, I cannot hold a candle to this encyclopediac tribute.

Note that the project is at version 0.917 as of this writing--meaning there will be further revisions, replacing bad recordings with better ones, and adding new CDs as they unearth more treasures. But don't wait to download this treasure trove! It's a history that's making history, and is essential for all Hymns to the Dead Goddess fans!

NOTE: Shortly after this episode aired, Oh Dae Su and Laura Hobbs parted ways. Per Laura's wishes we stopped playing Oh Dae Su on the station immediately afterwards. But for historical purposes I, the Prophet Lilith, decided to keep the Oh Dae Su song "Branded Like Meat" on the podcast version of this episode. I hope to interview Laura Hobbs some time in the near future to set the record straight regarding her departure from Oh Dae Su.

This was a hard episode to record, and a hard one to rework for the podcast, if only because The Prophet Lilith began work on it during the Transgender Day of Remembrance--a very dark day for trans folk. The episode reflects that darkness, with little chatter and more black metal than usual. This episode features music from Diamanda Galás, Nocturnal Worshipper, Valhalla, Vastum, Haemorrhage, Tuman, Izegrim, Cretin, U-10 Cells, Darkened Nocturn Slaughtercult, Upon Shadows, Be Persecuted, Throne of Naya, and Znöwhite.

Hymns To The Dead Goddess features the women of extreme music--whether trans or cis.
