Hi bands and fans. Jason from Jarcodes here. We are at the final episode for the month of April, and For me personally it is the end of a month that I thought might not even happen. Before during and after my eye surgery, I was concerned about one thing. Well two. My eye, and my podcast. For three years now I have been eating and breathing Unsigned music and broadcasting and in the seconds it took to hear the diagnosis all of that was at risk. After surgery I laid in bed feeling sorry for myself, then less sorry and more towards how I can improve this show. I was unable to go online, unable to network, or communicate with my co-hosts, but during all of that. In that moment that you wish you had one friend. I was lucky enough to have a few. My friend Cathie went above and beyond nursing me back to health, My good friend Nicole was there with me every day. Some times More then that. Calling me and helping me pull out of that depression I was feeling about the loose of something I had worked so hard on for so long. My friend and Co0host Johan stepped up without a hesitation offering the proceeds of his Ep to help me pay for the procedure, With such support it was less then four days after that eye surgery that I was up and editing a new pair of Countdown episodes. And so two weeks after that when I shocked everybody and insisted on recording with only three day warning. My friend Adam took it upon himself to make sure it happened. Johan immediately stepped in and while Jacob already had Easter plans and Tony had his first Vap Bash. We had ourselves a Live Stream Underground Recap Session. I guess that was a very long way of Thanking my friends who are my family and to help explain how much we all really love and believe in the potential of this project. We may be just a collection of Music loving fans But we all agree that what we do here touches and supports so many awesome people fans and bands alike that our goal had have to be improving.
Alright! About these Five Top Five Band. Ranging from France, Finland,The United States, Russia, Japan, and Sweden. The sounds included in this April list was a varied as the countries. Diversity being a main goal here at The Unsigned Countdown. Bazaar with the Fierce blast beet filled track Vices and lies was so intense it made one of our crew Speed in a school zone? and punch children. Adam please seek help immediately. A pair of Countdown guest hosts collaborated As Travis did his verbal gymnastics all over a riff filled, multi layered brutalosity from Tommi. Shotgun Surgery was spot on classic Tommi and Travis. From Russia with Metal, Sugar Sand came plowing into our Countdown with their well seasoned classic Kill Me. Was it a bit generic or was it perfectly polished and main stream? You tell us by visiting Jarcodes on Twitter. Try using the Hash tag #InMyOpinion.A drummer from Japan with a side project not only landed at number two but destroyed it as Ractica and their track All Your Sins. Matched all elements to create this screaming firestorm. And taking the number one spot with the judges vote. Figures of the Fallen brought the house with the no Countdown classic Gift of the Apocalypse. combining and flowing through mismatching genres and creating something with Movement and power, originality, and consistence. Not only did the Swedish crew smash our earballs but then they joined us during our Live Feed Interview of which an excerpt ends the show.
