This Toilet Tuesday (1/16/24)


O regal receptacle, o bone-white throne, rid mine abode of the funk of filth. This week we’ve got undead Mustela metal, amphibianoise, and truly unpleasant boomer shid. The bowl is filling up quite nicely this year; soon enough, we’ll need more than just our galoshes to wade into the WC waters! Ignore the “no diving” signs, I’m sure you’ll be fine.

Lord Dying – Clandestine Transcendence (MNRK Heavy) [Sludge / Death Metal]

I thought I’d never budge on sludge, but lately I’ve been enjoying the murk—and Lord Dying’s latest LP promises to continue this trend into the fledgling year. From the first moment of single “I AM NOTHING I AM EVERYTHING,” the band’s penchant for spectacle rears its head; isolated drums pulverize like an Acme crate to the cranium, leaving listeners malleable to whatever else Lord Dying throws their way. As burly hardcore gives way to grind with curious ease, and a playful stoner riff bogarts the song’s midsection, I find myself wondering how these disparate moods fit together so smoothly in such a modest (5-minute) runtime. But Lord Dying are careful of their secrets—before I can make any sense of things, an overwhelming spasm of violence brings the song to a close. Sans wrinkles, the only question I have left is how many more replays ’til I have to pay? -Roldy
