This Toilet Tuesday (10/18/16)


It has been months since the swelling started. It began around a small, seemingly innocuous cut you gave yourself on the corner of your bathroom sink. A small amount of swelling was to be expected, but you started to be concerned when the skin around it started taking on a yellow-green hue and swelling further a few days later. You told yourself it was probably just a bruise and opted to ignore it; it didn’t hurt, after all. Your friends started to show concern not long after, when most of your forearm had swollen up and began to exude a pungent odor. You told them you’d go to a doctor, but never did; one by one, they left you as your body continued to balloon and the smell intensified.

Now you stare at your hideous, bloated form in the bathroom mirror, in the place where this all started. A green-tinged pus oozes from the corners of your eyes; your nose is too puffy to breathe through anymore. I don’t need them anymore, you bitterly tell yourself. You look down at your swollen arm; the cut has begun to split open. Beneath a thin sheen of blood, your new skin glistens, green and slick. A thin tendril worms its way out of the wound, swaying seemingly of its own accord. You stare at it dully, feeling new splits forming across your body. The transformation is drastic but painless, your shed skin lying in heaps at your feet. Yes, you think, I’ll make them accept my new form.

Embrace the scum inside. This is Toilet Tuesday.

Dünedain – Pandemonium (Independent) [Power Metal]
Listen to “Legado”

Sons of Metal! Of Power! My brothers! I see in your eyes the same fear that would take the heart of me! A day may come when the riffs of men fail, when we forsake our choruses and break all bonds of melody. But it is not this day. An hour of posers and shattered steel when the age of Trve comes crashing down! But it is not this day! This day we fight! By all that you hold dear on this good Earth, I bid you riff! Men of the Toilet! FFO: Hobbits, Elves, Cheesy Euro power 10/16/16 (W.)


Auroch – Mute Books (Profound Lore Records) [Death Metal]
Listen to “He Wreaths the Cross,” “Say Nothing”

I remember Taman ShudAuroch’s last LP, catching some flak in the dark pre-Toilet days for “trying too hard.” At the time, I was of the same mindset; my tastes in death metal have expanded quite a bit since then, and I’ve come to appreciate the wild and unhinged nature of the band. The press release for Mute Books promises this will be Auroch’s “darkest, most brutal, complex, and musically virulent release to date,” but the two songs available as of this writing seem to indicate a much more direct and controlled effort. That’s not a bad thing- indeed, the riffs are still big and nasty- but I’m hoping the rest of the album will display more of the madness present on the last one. Either way, this will definitely be a good listen. 10/21/16 (Spear)
