The Celtic Frosty Podcast Goes Tech

Celtic Frosty is dropping by to pimp his latest ‘cast.

For those of you unaware, I’ve started my own podcast called The Celtic Frosty Podcast, because I’m super good at naming things. It’s based on the same format as Radio Fenriz. I choose a theme, create a playlist, and play DJ for about an hour. I’m only 2 episodes in, but having a hell of a time cobbling it all together.

On my most recent episode, I decided to focus on a genre that I previously didn’t pay much attention to – Tech Death. My inspiration was the new Wormed tuneage that’s been coming out in drips and drabs over the last few weeks (you can now stream the entire album here). I reached out to our local gurus of tech Jack Bauer and Spear on the Toilet ov Hell Facebook group for some recommendations, as well as going back and sifting through our own Tech Death Thursday series (the OG weekly tech death series) for inspiration. The results speak for themselves. This playlist is a dick-crushing sampler of high octane tech, brutal tech and progressive tech death that I hope will create some new fans of the genre. I know it certainly converted me.

A lot of our regular readers will recognize most of these songs, but those living outside the rim of our humble toilet will hopefully find something fresh and exciting. I’ve listed the tracks below along with links to each album. I was lucky enough on this episode to find everything I needed on Bandcamp, so if you hear something you really like, click that link and open your tight ass wallet.

1. Deviant Process – “Narcissistic Rage”

2. Separatist – “Ω”

3. Primordium – “The Incursion”…escence

4. Veiled in Sorrow – “My Decrepit Lament”

5. Atlas Entity – “Upon the Crest of Solar Winds”

6. Unhuman – “Psychotic Afterlife”

7. Perihelion – “Devouring Lifeforms”

8. Contrarian – “Need for Apathy”

9. Necrosy – “Drown Into Perdition (at 320 bpm)”

10. Irreversible Mechanism – “Outburst”

11. A Loathing Requiem – “Prismatic Delusion”…es-eternal

Disclaimer: I haven’t yet bought a proper mic because I don’t want to start spending money on this until I know it’s something I’ll stick with (I quit a lot). The awful voice recording you’re hearing is courtesy of the mic on my earbuds. Sorry about that.

Stay Tech!


    EXCELLENT m/m/


    • Celtic Frosty

      I have a habit of making that goat sound all the time. I’m really cool.

    • he knows how to hook folks right off the get-go!

  • Dubs

    Thanks for doing these, Frostman.

    • ♫Frosty teh Snow Hombre♫

      • “¡No le digan al señor Roselli que perdí mi sombrero!”

        • “No something something something something Mr. something what my hat”

          Dude, I think I nailed that one.

          • Don’t worry, Jimmy or 365 will back me up with this. They are official Simpsonsnologists.

  • Irreversible Mechanism is a-good. The production is a little bit lousy, but they make crushing music to be just a duo from Belarus.

    To me, is one of the highlights of the Tech Death of 2015. And, like Spear informed, I am stoked for their future release.

    • CyberneticOrganism

      Cool playthrough, although the random trees & shit clips are lolbuttz

  • Nice work Frosty, I listened for a few minutes before I went to work and am going to finish up during lunch break. When you do a grind podcast, I know a guy.

    • Celtic Frosty

      I wonder how many grind songs I can squeeze into an hour long podcast

      • Dubs

        99, at least.

        • ♫99 Grind Songs and They Are All Fun♫

          -REO Speedwagon

        • Celtic Frosty

          This month on the Celtic Frosty Podcast, all the grind. All of it.

          • Dubs

            Lol. You’ve got two dudes who would help if you wanted. The Double Deuce with Deuce and Dubs.

      • Potentially 40 – 50.

  • I must have totally missed that TDT about Separatist. That’s some heaaaavy stuff. Me likes.

    • Edward/Breegrodamus™

      I think I bought that one because of Monsieur Bauer.

    • Dude in separatist has a heavy as fuck grind band called WRITHE too.

      • Edward/Breegrodamus™

        W R I T H E

        I was excited when I made that connection.

    • you will see McNulty’s little face on their bandcamp as well.

  • The solo in Veiled in Sorrow’s song was gud. Real gud.

    • Spear

      The guitar on that EP is insane.

      • oooOOOoooo and they are from Ohio. Cool-io

      • Hoping for a full length from them soon

    • Celtic Frosty

      There are so many good solos on that EP. I had trouble picking a song.

  • Deviant Process is fucking incredible. One of the best debut tech death albums I’ve ever heard.

    • Ann was talking pretty highly about it as well. time to jump onboard!

  • Janitor Jim Duggan

    Off topic but Lynyrd Skynyrd is going to Albany with Peter Frampton. I’m so going.

  • Janitor Jim Duggan

    Also, great podcast. You’re a good Mr Frosty.

  • Celtic Frosty bringing you the weedlies, as well as the deedlies. Gewd podcast! Jump on that new mic. I’ve heard the Blue Snowball mics are pretty great for the price.

    • Celtic Frosty

      That’s the one I plan to get. Probably when I get paid next. I think this is something I’m going to continue doing.

  • Also, I don’t know if anyone else has been having problems with this, but none of those bandcamp links are working for me.

  • The interesting perk to this format is that you get hand picked tunes from a variety of different bands without having to sludge through a whole LP to find ONE good tech death song. AND the bands are all different enough that you can stay engaged with the whole podcast and not bounce out after the first track.

    Fine work, Frosty.


    • Celtic Frosty

      Thanks. My goal has always been to share good music with people. I think this was the best format to work with for that goal. Radio Fenriz is a really cool idea that I unashamedly stole.

  • YourLogicIsFlushed

    I am envious of your ability to talk to a microphone without sounding like an idiot. I don’t even like talking to other people on the phone. Nice job, I will listen to these as long as you continue to not quit them.

    • Celtic Frosty

      Thanks! To be fair, I do obsessively edit and re-record my commentary until it sounds the way I want it to. I rarely get it right on the first try. I did do better this time around than on the first podcast, though.

  • Spear

    I really ought to revisit Perihelion. I just couldn’t get into it for whatever reason the first time around.

    • Celtic Frosty

      It’s a little immature and wankish, but I love how intensely heavy it is.

      • Spear

        Immature is a good way to put it.

    • It’s pretty good, though something about the production irks me. It’s not an album I can listen to in full. More of a band I like when it comes up on shuffle.

  • Boss the “Hoss” Ross

    Very cool Frosty! Podcasts are fun. I’ve taken part in some before, not quite like this though, more nerdy stuff.

  • Matt Pike’s Sweaty Left Nipple

    Sweet playlist. Sweet podcast. Sweet Frosty.

  • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

    I don’t dig a lot of tech-death (or SoundCloud) but anyone who digs Unhuman is alright in my books.

  • Waynecro

    You picked some mighty fine songs, man. This is really great! Thanks! Also, the song “A-Life Omega Point” off the new Wormed album crushes hard as fuck at 0:58.

  • you sound great on microphone, @celticfrosty:disqus! scratch off any worries you may have had about it.
