On Altered Beats Radio #31, DJ 5arah brings you hot new music from Grendel, Skyla Vertex, Ad Inferna, Continues & more!
Welcome to our newest weekly podcast, Empire. You may be familiar with the DJ on this one as he was one of the DJs on the now defunct COMA Radio with his show, The Smoak Room (In fact, the intro says this is The Smoak Room but after recording we decided to go with a new name.). Yes, that’s right, we brought DJ Smoak over to the dork side.
In this 1st episode DJ Smoak will introduce to you bands he’s been concentrating on for most of the year.
You will hear synth-pop, harsh ebm, industrial-metal & a goth track for good measure!
Hopefully the next episode will have even newer tracks from these bands and more!
