***OCTOBER 2013 mp3 Mix***

OCTOBER 2013 mp3 MIX
...and updates

Alrighty, welcome to another month of OMSB! These posts no longer give me stress and are feeling pretty routine nowadays, which is good. ZEGEMA BEACH RECORDS continues to suck my bank account dry, but starting next month the first vinyls will be arriving at my door. The first will be DESCUBRIENDO A MR. MIME and then in November/December AMBER should be ready, with CASSILIS following up in December/January (hopefully).
OPENmind/SATURATEDbrain surpassed the 10,000 views milestone, which is pretty decent for 4 months in existence. Let's do a quick recap:

***Interviews coming up for sure:
-By Divine Right
-Loma Prieta
-plus at least 5 more

***Interviews last month:
-For Want Of (video interview)

***Previous interviews:
-Carrion Spring
-Dog Knights Productions
-Voyage In Coma

***20 quintessential past posts from what I consider to be "obscure screamo" that fans of said genre need to check out:
-Birthday Boyz
-Eyes Of Verotika (one of my cats is named after this band)
-Kodan Armada
-Isodora Crane
-La Parade
-La Quiete
-Phoenix Bodies
-Sed Non Satiata
-Setup, The
-Storm The Bastille
-Third Memory, The
-Transistor Transistor
-With Horses In Her Eyes

As a few of the more astute readers may have noticed, tracks #6, 15 and 17 from the mix reviewed in September have not been posted yet. There's good reason for that - all 3 of those bands will(hopefully) be submitting interviews in the next week or two. I will then post the reviews and interviews together.

The following pages have changes:
*Kill Sadie's page has been updated with additional (and extremely rare!) mp3s thanks to an anonymous reader of this blog!

As always, on the 1st (or 2nd) of every month, I will be posting a ZIP file with songs for the upcoming month with ALL specifics deleted from the tags, so unless you already know the band, there is NO information regarding each track.

During the following month, I will post reviews for those bands and link the tracks to the review so you can associate the two together. This way you can listen to a new song/band and have little-to-no bias. Below, I have reposted the September mp3 mix that is used for the October reviews. This mix will be reviewed during the month of October and the first band will be reviewed on the 3rd. 
The NEW (October mp3s/November reviews) mix that will be dissected in November has been posted below and features 18 choice cuts from yours truly...errr, I mean, me. Including:
*-*a band that took me well over a month to truly appreciate, and now their record is in contention for the one of the year's best screamo albums
*-*a German band that will blow the minds of any fan of Amber, Botch, Converge and Back When
*-*an Australian band that blended the stylings of Choke and Algernon Cadwallader
*-*a screamo band that can use synths and still sound like Orchid, a REALLY good Orchid
*-*a Japanese band that released a single split 10" that was a shining beacon of post-hardcore and epic screamo/metal hope then quickly disbanded.

Any bands/labels that are interested in having their stuff reviewed, please email with "Open Mind Saturated Brain" as the subject
