This Toilet Tuesday (11/29/16)


You cling tightly to the mast of your small sailboat as the storm tosses it about. It had been roiling on the horizon for some time now, but you were too far out to sea to change course. Lightning flashes directly overhead, and you wrap a rope around your forearm for added stability. Wind whips the sail above you, and you see a tear forming down its center. A massive wave crashes into your tiny ship; you scramble for purchase as it begins to capsize, but it’s futile in the deluge. Another flash of lightning briefly illuminates the horrific scene as you hit the water.

The rope around your arm has somehow tangled itself as the ship was upset, and you desperately try to free yourself before you’re pulled down into the depths. Your lungs burn, having expelled all your air with the exertion. You finally free your arm from the rigging, but you can feel your blood pumping in your temples; you don’t have much time. You place your palm near your mouth and cough up a last gasp of air, tracking the bubbles upwards. You can feel yourself fading as you swim, and you start to choke as your lungs desperately try to inhale. You lose consciousness seconds from the surface.

The deep calls. This is Toilet Tuesday.


Astral Winter – Forest of Silence (Immortal Frost Productions) [Black Metal]

Astral Winter has a sound quite befitting of their name, coupling airy synths and choirs with icy black metal. Forest of Silence has a grand, sweeping feel to it, not unlike this year’s earlier Hyperion release with just a hint of In The Nightshade Eclipse to round out the mix. It’s big, powerful, and chilling, and has some truly impressive guitar and keyboard shredding on top of it all. More solos in black metal, please. 11/28/16 (Spear)


Abnormal Inhumane – Consuming the Infinity (New Standard Elite) [Brutal Death Metal]
Listen to “Vortex of Unending Phenomena,” “Morphogenic Asymmetry”

Few things turn a shitty mood around quite like brutal death metal, and Abnormal Inhumane know how to deliver on that front. While it probably won’t be turning quite as many heads as Krighsu or FinitudeConsuming the Infinity has everything you could want: winding, nasty riffs; relentless drumming; and some savage bass playing. It’s got brains delivered by brawn, like being beaten over the head with a physics textbook. 11/30/16 (Spear)
