This Toilet Tuesday (11/22/16)


Welcome to This Toilet Tuesday! We’ve got new jams aplenty this week, a couple of which may or may not be brought to us by our fellow Toilet-goers. Link and I have picked out a few of the choicer selections for your listening pleasure, so be sure to check those out. Have at it!


Witchery – In His Infernal Majesty’s Service (Century Media Records) [Black Thrash]
Listen to “Oath Breaker,” “Nosferatu”

Witchery is a band that delivers a very refined slice of thrash metal tinted with burbling dark ink. The Swedish ones are now back with more vengeance, served in a rounded silver plate, with a nearly intact line-up. Newcomer drumming manic, Christofer Barkensjö ,injected new blood into the mix with a frenzied performance, and Angus Norder, the new vocalist, add a blackened throat to summon the dark forces to raid the Earth. The Corpse and Jensen guitar co-op mode is intact, with the razorblade riffing attack, aided by the Gentle Giant Sharlee D’Angelo with his signature stomping bass attack. All the positions are set into the deadline, Witchery is back and these two songs prove that their are still strong in their game! 11/25/16 (Link)


Nightmare – Dead Sun (AFM Records) [Power Metal]
Listen to “Serpentine”

Of all the AFM Records bands, Nightmare probably have the meatier and heavy guitar tone of all. The precise and powerful performance of the new vocalist Maggy Luyten tag very well with the thrash inspired riffing style, going to harsh lows and soaring highs in an instant. Every instrument crush through glass and bones and I feel that the band is on a inspiring time, pushing their power metal style to grandiose altitudes. AFM Records is killing it this year with so many cool releases for the power metalheads! 11/25/16 (Link)


Fromhell – March on Gravitation (Naturmacht Productions) [Progressive Black Metal]
Listen to “Hibernation Sun,” “Summoning Stars”

I suppose it might be a bit of stretch calling Fromhell “progressive” black metal, given how deeply their sound is rooted in the trappings of the second wave, but I feel like their use of post-black tools in a traditional black metal setting earns them the descriptor. They make extensive use of Hammond organ, soothing clean vocals, and the effects-laden clean guitar you’d expect from an outfit like Vukari, but it’s all set in the midst of powerful triumphant riffing in the vein of Havukruunu. It’s a cool sound that works surprisingly well, and I’m very much looking forward to the rest of the album. 11/26/16 (Spear)
