This Toilet Tuesday (10/20/15)


Welcome, sweet toilet bros, to another round of This Toilet Tuesday! With Halloween just over the horizon, the flow of new releases has picked up exponentially, because it’s apparently still cool to put out your devil music then. That also means I’ll be delving into the sewers a little earlier than usual so not one of these turds passes me by. In the meantime, check out our picks below and share yours in the comments!


Avatarium – The Girl With the Raven Mask (Nuclear Blast) [Doom]
Listen to “The Girl With the Raven Mask”

This is music that reeks of grass, raindrops and a thin tobacco smell. Leif Edling, of Candlemass fame, and his new company made it again: rock-fueled gasoline bassy melodic lines, accompanied with the dangerous absurdist lyrics and the cynical attitude of Jennie’s wonderful voice. The main hook of Avatarium is their stylish blending of their different influences of both retro and modern doom muses into one single package that distill a great musical accomplishment. 10/23/15 (Link)

Drowning Horse – Sheltering Sky (Art As Catharsis Records) [Drone/Sludge/Doom]
Listen to “Echoes,” “The Barrow Stones”

The first of the two Drowning Horse tracks available from Sheltering Sky, “Echoes”, starts off with a droning clean-guitar that makes you think this song is about to go somewhere very different. The chords then bleed into a muddy roar that when paired against continued droning of the guitar creates an exceptionally menacing atmosphere that builds in tone and force as the percussion slowly comes to un-life like a zombie rising from the blighted earth. The next track continues on with the menacing march to oblivion, staying low and slow on the back of a burdened riff. FFO: The Sun Through a Telescope, Whitehorse, Indian 10/22/15 (W.)


Enshine – Singularity (Naturmacht/Rain Without End) [Death/Doom]

Enshine are a bit of an enigma to me. On Singularity, they take three things I normally can’t stand- doom, groove metal, and Gothic metal of all things- and mix them together in a way that hits all the right buttons for me. It helps that the slower parts remind me somewhat of labelmates Exgenesis’ output from earlier this year, but they feel more reserved than that. There are a couple solid headbangers here, too, with minimalist groove riffs setting a foundation for an atmosphere composed of ethereal synths and lead guitars drenched in reverb. 10/18/15 (Spear)
