Regular listeners of the podcast may have heard me mention Toronto's Ischemic during my interview with Mors Verum's Mrudul Kamble - Kamble is also the drummer for Ischemic; and despite one project being classified as "death metal" and the other as "doom", the two share a certain atmospheric sensibility.

I spoke with Ischemic guitarist Adam Korchok about why the band owes its existence to a Kijiji ad, and how the band evolved towards its current sound. We also discussed how they were able to record their latest self-titled album "in house", and find the middle ground between the band's visceral and melodic influences.

My thanks to Adam for speaking with me, and to all of you for listening.
