This Toilet Tuesday (10/12/21)


Another week, another Toilet Tuesday, and boy is it ever a Tuesday. While there’s definitely some good stuff on the way, I’ve forgotten what 90 percent or so of it is on account of having to hear something like five back-to-back symphonic metal bands where you can somehow smell the top hat through the music. Please end my misery by sharing the good shit in the comments below.

Noltem – Illusions in the Wake (Transcending Obscurity) [Atmospheric Black Metal]

“Atmospheric black metal” is a descriptor I usually reserve for music that eschews riffs for… well, atmosphere, the kind of stuff that accompanies a walk through the rain-drenched bluffs overlooking the autumnal fires of the forest below as you contemplate your place in the world. Noltem, on the other hand, is very much a riff-driven atmospheric metal band that can still perfectly accompany a walk through the rain-drenched bluffs overlooking the autumnal fires of the forest below as you contemplate your place in the world. The music and guitar tone are equally warm and hazy, almost the kind of thing you’d expect from doom bands, all soaking in reverb and painfully introspective and nostalgic in feel. When the guitars do break for the more purely atmospheric bits, the drums and bass pick up in intensity, going in some incredible proggy directions. It’s no shock that a band on TSO is damn good, but even I wasn’t expecting something labeled “atmospheric black metal” to hit this hard. 10/15/21 (Spear)
