This Toilet Tuesday (1/12/16)


You lie awake in your bed, sweating bullets. Sleep won’t come; the restlessness in your bowels won’t let it. You desperately need to shit, but you dare not. You fear it. Three days ago, you relentlessly taunted a friend of a friend, a self-proclaimed witch, for her belief in the supernatural. She promised to curse you, to bring your inner self to light. You laughed it off at the time, but the next time you had a bowel movement, it violently crawled its way back in. You now know what she meant: living shit. Even now you can feel it squirming in your lower intestine, daring you to try to expel it. Realizing the futility of such a gesture, you have tried to starve it, but in doing so, are starving yourself.

And so you continue to lay there in your despondency, allowing this filth to permeate your being. You don’t move for days; soon, you couldn’t even if you wanted to. You have no energy. You consider calling this witch to apologize, but your pride won’t let you. By the tenth day, you have accepted your fate. You wither away and rot from the inside out as ulcers form in your digestive tract and your blood becomes septic. You die, poisoned by your demons.

You aren’t missed.

Welcome to This Toilet Tuesday.


Morar – Wahlheim (Nebular Winter Productions) [Black Metal]

Howling from the heart of winter, Morar beckon you to a frosty oblivion with 7 cuts of choice atmospheric black metal. The songs range from glacial-paced elegies to the frozen north to ripping tracks that blow and thrash with the fury of an unrelenting blizzard, but all of the songs are cold in both tone and instrumentation. Even the little moments of heat, like borealic synth lines or acoustic pluckings, are just fairy fires leading you further astray into snow-blindness. Too late; frozen. FFO: Windir, Satyricon, Summoning 1/15/16 (W.)


Lycus – Chasms (Relapse Records) [Doom]
Listen to “Solar Chamber,” “Obsidian Eyes”

Every so often over the last few weeks, I’ve found myself drifting back to the two preview tracks on offer from Lycus. Although the band deals in suffocating doom metal, there are enough interesting textural elements and lush details buried deep in these two long tracks to encourage repeated listens. If patience is a virtue, Lycus are surely a reward. FFO: Giant Squid, Ahab, Asunder 1/15/16 (W.)

the lumberjack feedback

The Lumberjack Feedback – Blackened Visions (Kaotoxin Records) [Instrumental Sludge/Doom/Post/Whatever]
Listen to “Blackened Visions”

I’ve heard tell that some of you are partial to sick riffs. If you happen to be one of those people, then this is for you. The Lumberjack Feedback have a sound that instantly reminded me of Tempel; atmospheric, cinematic, and wholly devoid of the wankery that plagues so many other instrumental acts. Fans of middle-years Mastodon and post/sludge in general should find a lot to love here. 1/15/16 (Spear)
