This Toilet Tuesday (11/25/14)


The Void looms. It draws ever nearer. Its blackened hand will reach from the murky depths and drag you down through the sewage. Your body will be broken; your mind, snapped. It will leave you to sink into the blackened forever, choking on a darkness more suffocating than the filth in which you eternally writhe. There are no gods or devils here, or the comfort of other lost souls with whom to share your anguish; only you. Only you to know the infinite despair of the fate of mankind. Welcome to the Void.

Welcome to This Toilet Tuesday. -Spear


Hierophant – Peste (Bridge 9 Records) [D-Beat/Hardcore]


Gird your loins, because this album goes hard. Are they girded? Good, because Hierophant bring the aggression. Blackened, crusty, and void-lovin’, this album will grab you by your greasy long hair and drag you through a rusty scrapyard covered in barbed wire. Then it will piss on you for good measure. Few albums released in 2014 will hit this hard and unrelentingly. Don’t miss it. (W.)


Obscurity – Vintar (Trollzorn) [Viking Metal]

Listen to “Naglfar”

Come sail away, come sail away, come sail away with me on a ship made of the fingernails and toenails of the dead. That’s right, the “Naglfar” is your passage into the grim cold of Helheim, and Obscurity are the boatmen. Dealing a searing black/Viking metal assault somewhere between the more aggressive nature of Schlechtvalk and the grandiose visions of Enslaved, Obscurity offer the perfect wintry soundtrack to battle during the Fimbulvinter. This isn’t a reinvention of the wheel but a solid take on the grand pagan tradition. Check it out. (W.)


Dahakara – Lone Aeon (Independent) [Experimental/Electronic/Black Metal]


Hailing all the way from Istanbul, Turkey, Dahakara is a one man black metal band that combines spacey guitar riffs, electronic ambiance, and layered, menacing vocals. Only one out of the five tracks contains vocals, but Dahakara sets an undeniably dark and satisfying tone against the cosmic backdrop of electronic soundscapes and solid instrumental work. For an easy two bucks, you can pick it up on the Dahakara Bandcamp page, so check it out and support some overseas metal! (Stockhausen)


Skelethal – Interstellar Knowledge of the Purple Entity (Iron Bonehead) [Death Metal]

Listen to “Sabbatical Demonic Invocation”

I’ve noticed lately that my knowledge of the purple entity has been lacking lately, especially in the interstellar department. Luckily, bands on Iron Bonehead tend to have a knack for knocking some brutal sense into us listeners. Although I’ve only heard one song, the new release from Skelethal is shaping up to be a steady, reliable crusher. Stomping around at times and wildly charging at others, “Sabbatical Demonic Invocation” is a down-tuned, crunchy ode to straight up, furious death metal that demands attention. We may not be reinventing the wheel here, but that’s ok. This wheel rules. (Stockhausen)


Axenstar – Where Dreams Are Forgotten (Inner Wound) [Power Metal]

Listen to “Fear”

It had been years since I’d listened to Axenstar prior to this last weekend, but lo and behold here they are with a new album. If the track “Fear,” is any indication, it’s going to be a good one, too. Vocalist/bassist Magnus Eriksson differentiates himself from most power metal singers by both the mellow timbre of his voice and the lower register he sings in- not as low as, say, Mathias Blad, but you won’t be hearing much (if any) crazy soaring vocals here. In fact, the band as a whole seems to be a little mellower than other bands in the genre. The music is still fast and intense, but the overall tone is dark and warm. Here’s hoping the rest of Where Dreams Are Forgotten kicks as much ass as “Fear.” (Spear)
