Flush-It Friday: This Toilet Tuesday Edition (3/24/23)


Fuck, what a week. From getting my ass beat at work to getting my ass beat at a tech death show last night, it’s been a whole lot of pain (though waking up sore from a show is never really the worst feeling). Thankfully, I’ve got Roldy to help compile these lists, and the rest of the Toilet crew held down the fort while I was failing to do my editorial duties. Let’s catch up on some of what we wrote this week, then hit that new releases list down below for all the shit you could possibly want to listen to.

Rolderathis gave us our first taste of Olkoth:

Track Premiere: Olkoth – “Alhazred”

Iron Goddess of Mercy poured on some inky, sludgy blackness from Moribund Mantras:

Track Premiere: Moribund Mantras – “Shore of Knowledge”

Joe and Jordan subjected themselves to Rolling Stones’ “100 Greatest Metal Songs of All Time” list for our amusement:

Toilet Radio 424 – 100 Decent Metal-Adjacent Songs

All of us got lost in the Maze of Sothoth and are still stuck there. Please send help:

Album Premiere: Maze of Sothoth – Extirpated Light

Metasph​æ​ra – Metasph​æ​ra (Independent) [Tech Death]

Imagine Obscura wrote Diminishing Between Worlds and you’d have something pretty close to Metasph​æ​ra. These folks play some mighty weedly tech death with a very mercurial structure, real big brain shit for people who live and die by the riff. As one would hope from this type of music, there is a direction to the madness, so even with all the time and tempo changes, it never really feels clunky- just weird, and we love our shit weird. 3/24/23 (Spear)
