Sput's NOV 2018 Song of the Day

New month, new list, new recs! I can't wait to see what wonderful lullabies and headache-inducing noise will be on display for us in the next 30 days! Same rules apply, recommend a song to be added to the list, whatever genre you want, with artist name, album name, genre tag, link, and a description. At the behest of Papi's idea, rec dark and cataclysmic songs, either in lyrics or tone... I know Halloween is just ending, but we can keep the spook and dread going for a little longer... If you wanna be helpful, you can enter you ratings in the spreadsheet here : https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1yo9Aj7t1IZwG41xFgX9kzIugIsVckENq5RnQace1WDw/edit#gid=603188734
1Carpenter Brut
Leather Teeth


November 1 (RunOfTheMill): "Leater Teeth" (synthwave)

I'll start off with the title track off the newest Carpenter Brut release. Simply put, it's a hype as fuck instrumental synthwave anthem.

November 2 (Papa Universe): "Nunovo Tango" (weird folk/blues)


First of all, this language is gibberish. The lyrics mean nothing and are there to merely sound odd and funny. The song is dark, but rather in a grotesque way, otherwise it's mostly uplifting and upbeat. And the music video is a work of tart and gbab na glabla gooptidoo pkapkapka flaf shjak fnoo.

8Man with a Mission
Chasing the Horizon


November 8 (ZombieToyDuck): "My Hero"

Sort of serving as a modern day Rage Against the Mission with heavier pop influence. Man With A Mission are a Japanese band presenting a colorful array of Alternative Rock with plenty of passion. Even if they wear silly wolf masks there's a fairly serious message to most of their music.

City


November 10 (Metalrain): "Spirituality"

This really feels like the end of world, being taken over by machines. This has all the industrial elements from their sound and just pushes it to the limit, abandoning speed for some heavy riffing.

A sweet song with a surprise. The whole album is about being a depressed drug addict who tries to hide his sadness behind humor and yeah...

November 14 (BlazinBlitzer): "See the World Given to a One Love Entity" (psychedelic noise rock)

Although I'll probably never decide on whether this song's actually good or not, it's something you definitely have to hear because I've personally never heard anything even remotely like this. If you dare, go after the 37-minute version that's on the title album, but for now I'll spare you guys with the edited version. Enjoy!

November 17 (Metalrain): "The End of Dormancy"

Have to admit that recing Spirituality isn't the smartest descision I made, since it needs proper context to work. So I present you something even worse, a song from a concept album from an old school thrash/prog band from their modern album about the end of world(by aliens). Enjoy!

November 18 (osmark86): VII Circle - "Eternal"

not everyone will enjoy techno, but for those that do or are willing to give this ago I think you'll really love it. very ambient with a lot of focus on rhythm and dark vibes. this soars. will add the album to the database if it isn't there already.

November 23 (Egarran): "Vampiria"

Metalrain taught me to stick to my guns, so here's a goth metal song about vampires. The first part was cheesy already when it released, so I dare not think of what it sounds like now.

November 24 (RunoftheMill): "Hymne au Vampire (Acte I)" (black metal)

Since we have so many songs about vampires, I'll throw in this cool track from the first Seth album. I love the synths and atmosphere on this one. There's also "Acte II" which is just as good. Lyrics are in French, but it's a poetic and romanticised telling of letting yourself die and become a creature of of evil ready to conquer all. That's the shit I like m/

November 29 (RunOfTheMill): "Diamonds and Rust"

Dark in tone and emotionally cataclysmic. This is one of Joan's most popular songs and truth be told I haven't listened to much else by her (seeing as my interest in this song stems from an equally stellar Judas Priest cover), but it is beautiful and heart-wrenching.
