Iowa Basement Tapes #133 1-21-2021 Iowa Black Metal

1/24/2021
Night Listeners - Most people don't associate Iowa with black metal. The season of winter usually sparks my interest in tunes by Ulver, Blut Aus Nord, or Paysage d'Hiver.

Major highlights include Satan's Almighty Penis (Bensmasher of 319 Dude and Ron of When Bitter Spring Sleeps), Dryad, and Erasmus. Iowa Basement Tapes has its own archive of Iowa music. Be sure...
