Asunder @ KFJC?

Asunder hits Eureka tonight with Corrupted and Amber Asylum, and I'm certainly glad I don't have to teach at 8am tomorrow, as I expect my head to take quite a thumping. I'm linking this post to a download of the comp CD that accompanied last year's Oaken Throne zine. The comp includes tracks from bands like Coffins, Harvey Milk, Moss, Adorior, and many other of today's better black/death/thrash/doom acts. It also has an edited live version of Asunder's "A Famine" that was recorded live at KFJC. I'm looking for a copy of either the entire unedited track or the entire set performed that day at the radio station, so if anyone out there can help me out, it would be much appreciated.

Not only does this comp take me back to some of the glory days of 80s underground metal when band demos and label/zine comps ruled the land, Oaken Throne itself is a testament to the superiroty of DIY print publications over the Internet message boards and blog sites (like this) that are the current fashion in underground (and popular) music culture. Everything about the zine is quality, most notably the graphics and content. Makes me kind of embarrased to even attempt to engage in discussions about music in this forum. Oaken Throne #6 was slated for a summer '08 release, but I haven't seen anything yet. I'm not worried though. I'm sure it will be worth the wait.

Not sure. But you can catch another live Asunder performance tomorrow night (Thurs, Nov. 6th after 8pm) on KFJC. You can listen and watch (via LIVE CAM) online.

Hey Cynthia,

Is that getting a rebroadcast anytime soon? I hung in until about 11:30 and nothing had happened yet. I love the webcam by the way.

Apparently they came on after 2am!

So, the Corrupted/Asunder collaboration will be rebroadcast on KFJC next Tuesday, November 18, 2008 from 5:30 until 7pm on an extended version of the show "From the Vault." or 89.7 FM
