Soviet Saviors - Burn Your Books

This week's episode will be about the effect of the Soviet Rule on the survival of goth music in Russia. I'll explore the reasons for the Communist Government's Western hatred of goth, metal, rock, and indie, as well as describe how this affected popularity of the darker music genres and include some of the more famous goth and post punk bands formed through the banning of goth music.
