Cemetery Confessions: A Goth Talk Podcast

On this episode we explore what it means to have an existential crisis when one can imagine a limitless future as a limited person. We’ll discuss the fear of time, the void and the afterlife, finding a reason to continue living, ageing, the pain of dying and much more. We’ll also review the new album from Morte Psíquica and share some secret upcoming projects.

Our guest this month is Sanctus Manium.
