This Toilet Tuesday (11/28/23)


O septic savior, O bowl of bowels, may we be #1 in your heart and #2 in your mouth. This week we’ve got putrid portmanteaus, BMP-core, and auditory snow for your ears (read: lo-fi black metal) to help let the spirit of Chrimbus inside. Beware of bergs as you dive beneath these frigid floes and you might just emerge a new favorite in tow!

Oro – Vid vägs ände (Hammerheart Records) [Sludge]

If Conjurer and Yashira had a baby and absconded to Sweden to raise it, it would end up sounding a lot like Oro here (and probably be hideously malformed as sludge band offspring tends to be). Make no mistake; this is big and icky, packed with slow and punchy riffs, but it’s also very melodic and well produced. If you like your sludge bordering on post-metal without quite crossing that line, check this out immediately. Incidentally, I also think atmoblack fans will get something out of this one as well- closer “Treriksröset” isn’t what I’d call “blackened” in any sense, but it evokes much the same feeling as those dreary autumnal albums tend to do. 12/1/23 (Spear)
