Perpetual Winter Productions: Perpetual Winter February 2012

Though we've seen little true cold and only a virtual dusting of snow this year, musically the era has never been more frigid.  January and February are turning out to be great months for Black Metal and Doom, and of course, there's always loads of classics to keep it cold.  Great stuff in this month's "Perpetual Winter" with tracks from AstrofaesRigor SardonicousMutilation Rites (Bandcamp), EphelesFuneralBaptism and more.  Some FREE DOWNLOADS from Dead to Earth,Orwell (Bandcamp), and Bohemian Grove, and brand new tracks from Shroud of Despondency (Bandcamp), and a couple big international names.  For a more detailed description visit

Playlists from this point forward will only be available in the download from  Years ago I remember there being a rule, that is most likely still technically in effect, that you weren't supposed to show people exactly what was coming up on streaming radio.  I think that's a pretty cool rule really.  You can stream below by clicking "Play" on the embeded stream from Podomatic or download the podcast:

Perpetual Winter Productions Recommends the following labels and retailers.  Some of which have provided content for your listening pleasure:

Sucking the 70's: January 2012

It's the Women of Dooom! in the second hour of this month's "Sucking the 70's," and an hour of kickass jams leading into it.  Great new tracks from the (as of yet) unleaked Orange Goblin & Corrosion of Conformity albums and a free download in "The Devil's Harvest," Some current and classic (apparently, The) Detroit Rock in The Power of Zeus, The Muggs, and The Octopus.  Bongzilla is back in the "Smokedown" and as I said the second hour is loaded with the likes of Blood Ceremony, The Devil's Blood and possibly the most legendary female extreme vocal performance ever.  

As usual be sure to check the links for great deals from Profound Lore RecordsHells Headbangers, and more.  If you haven't already be sure to "like" us on Facebook  It's January's edition of Perpetual Winter's Sucking the 70's.

Perpetual Winter Productions: Perpetual Winter January 2012

As you can see from the list below it's mostly classics this month on Perpetual Winter.  Though some are more influential among musicians than known by the metal masses.  Spreading Permafrost should introduce you to some new bands, along with a new Alcest track.


More links than usual this month for two of my absolute favorite labels/distros out there Bindrune Recordings & Hell's Headbangers, both of which also happen to be fellow Midwesterners.  Check 'em out for some GREAT deals.  Also, gotta give another shout out to Sleepwalker and Forbidden Records/Forbidden Magazine both highly recommended visits as well.

I'm also currently aware of a big sale from another Midwestern Metal Label as Abyss Records is currently having a sale that encompasses their entire stock.

Of course, find the current streaming casts for Perpetual Winter at
