This Toilet Tuesday (11/10/15)


Greetings, friends, and welcome to another This Toilet Tuesday! Now, I know that half of you are off playing Fallout 4 already, so the former Head of State and I are here to give a soundtrack that neither sucks nor crashes every time you try to move to a new area. There are all sorts of bleak and disgusting songs waiting to accompany you on your journey across the nuclear wasteland. Oh, and say hi to this guy for me if you happen across him.


Otargos – Xeno Kaos (Kaotoxin Records) [Black Metal]

Otargos means goat in Greek. You probably don’t need any more convincing than that, but in case you do, let me say this. “Dominatrix” is a rip-roaring bad-time that bodes well for Xeno Kaos. This track is filled with boundless energy, unrepentant blasts, and a technicality often missing from black metal. Whether or not that’s a good thing is up to you, but I’m jamming. FFO: Ignis Uranium, Non Opus Dei, Anaal Nathrakh 11/13/15 (W.)


Revenge – Behold​.​Total​.​Rejection (Season of Mist) [Black Metal]
Listen to “Wolf Slave Protocol (Choose Your Side)”

HOLY CRAP. This is one of the gnarliest, most misanthropic things I’ve heard all year. Revenge go hard and hateful, simple as that. Each track kind of blends into the next, but when the drums and riffs are as inhumanly fast and unassailable as this, do you really care? FFO: Conqueror, Blasphemy, Diocletian 11/13/15 (W.)


Firespawn – Shadow Realms (Century Media Records) [Death Metal]
Listen to “Ruination,” “Lucifer Has Spoken”

There has been no shortage of quality death metal this year, and Firespawn seek to add to the carnage with their debut, Shadow Realms. And add they do; while it probably won’t be as much of a knockout as, say, Horrendous, “Ruination” and “Lucifer Has Spoken” have no shortage of evil vigor. If you can forgive them a somewhat lolbuttzy music video, there’s a lot to enjoy here. 11/13/15 (Spear)


Hegemon – The Hierarch (Season of Mist) [Black Metal]

When I hit play on The Hierarch, the opening notes of “Hatred from the Core” led me to expect a solid second-wave black metal style album. With the exception of a couple guitar fills out of Mikael Åkerfeldt’s playbook, that’s what I got… for the first couple minutes. The final moments of the song saw a full choir explode into the tune, and from there the album continued to defy my expectations for its duration. The songwriting is surprisingly varied, with plenty of acoustic guitars and clean vocals adding texture and beauty to the bleakness. Don’t pass this up. 11/13/15 (Spear)
