  1. Hi— I heard the show on XM and loved it. I am not a Death metal head by any means, but I love heavy stuff, as well as slower stuff and alternative rock. One song that caught my attention, I just can seem to track it down. I’d call it Death metal meets math rock. A slow brooding track, with some type of spoken word vocals. Reminded me of Mogwai, but heavier. Any idea who this band might be? I sampled tracks from the playlist, but I didn’t recognize it. Can you help? Dave P Milwaukee WI, USA
