Christian likes mathcore. A lot. Christian likes a lot of other things, too. Besides from heading up Mathcore Index (blog, fest, podcast) he also runs the very sick Dark Trail Records, played in the genre-defying band Antarctica, is engaged, and works a real job as well. I've been aching to have this most excellent human being on this podcast, so this was definitely a treat.
Besides Christian's sultry, mesmerizing voice, you can also jam a brand new song from DITCH ORGAN (members of Fawn Limbs, Fargue, Creinium, Mireplaner), hear more songs from Fromjoy, Future Trash, In Reverent Fear, Sine Nomine and Willzyks, and listen to us chat about: the origin of "mathcore", cool uncles, skipping out on post-hardcore, joining the Mathcore team, Eeli Helin, the creation of Dark Trail Records, bands climbing the musical ladder, pressing plants that don't suck, Antarctica...on vinyl?, discussing the new Every Time I Die/Frontierer/The Armed/Genghis Tron/Code Orange albums, screamo, jobby jobbersons, videogames and anime, etc. Bands played in this podcast: Ditch Organ (exclusive premiere!!!), Fromjoy, Future Trash, In Reverent Fear, Sine Nomine and Willzyks.
