This Toilet Tuesday (11/4/14)


Welcome, fellow denizens of the porcelain palace, to another Toilet Tuesday!  Though the tide of releases has stemmed somewhat this week (since every metal band on the planet NEEDS to release their album on Halloween), the quality of said releases has not!  Grab a seat and take a listen to the aural gems below. -Spear

ne obliviscaris

Ne Obliviscaris – Citadel (Season of Mist) [Avant-Garde Metal]


Australia isn’t known for its death metal so much as it is for the terrible ways it can cause your death. Of course, to call Ne Obliviscaris just death metal is doing a disservice to the range of sounds this band produces (much like referring to an agonizing end in Australia as just “death” is severely underselling the brutal way it’s going to finish you). Ne Obliviscaris seamlessly weaves black, death and even violins to form something that sounds like it’s actually progressive. Fans of Portal of I will surely dig it. (Leif Bearikson)

nader sadek

Nader Sadek – The Malefic: Chapter III (Independent) [Death Metal]

Listen to “Carrion Whispers”

Nader Sadek is the curator of one of the most intriguing death metal supergroups in the biz. For those of you unaware, Nader is an artist that spearheads the creative direction of his self-titled project featuring members of Cryptopsy, Cattle Decaptiation, Cannibal Corpse, Neuraxis, Decapitated, Sepultura, Death, and Moonspell. If that list doesn’t make you salivate, the tasty tune “Carrion Whispers” most certainly will. This is excellent, bone-crushing death metal that brings out the best in each performer and unites every element into a palpable force. Plus, if you purchase the upcoming issue of Decibel, you can get The Malefic: Chapter III for free. All you bums get on that, because Nader Sadek rips. (W.)

cavalera conspiracy

Cavalera Conspiracy – Pandemonium (Napalm Records) [Thrash]

Listen to “Babylonian Pandemonium”

I’m just going to flash my poser badge here right from the get go. I like a lot of Max Cavalera’s work. There are several Soulfly albums I enjoy, I thought Killer Be Killed put out a fun record, and I dug the first Cavalera Conspiracy album. That said, I thought the second CC album was a big dud. Maybe a year ago Max mentioned that he and Igor were working on a grind album, and my interest piqued again, despite how disappointing the last few albums (aside from KBK) he’s put out have been. Fast forward to the new CC album. I wouldn’t call these songs grind, but “Bonzai Kamikaze” and “Babylonian Pandemonium” are certainly much better than anything on Blunt Force Trauma. These songs are a gripping blend of thrash and hardcore perfect for getting your headbang on. Not perfect, but perfectly adequate for a circle-pit inducing barn burner. (W.)


Sidious – Revealed in Profane Splendour (Kaotoxin) [Blackened Death]


Ever wonder what you’d get if you gave Fleshgod Apocalypse better production and a splash of black metal and tech death?  The result would be Sidious, a monstrous blackened death metal outfit from London.  While Sidious don’t quite approach the velocity of the former, they have a similar bombast to Fleshgod’s writing style and some of the string parts sound reminiscent of parts of Fleshgod’s Agony.  However, I believe that Sidious have a few things going for them that Fleshgod could learn from, most notably the production.  The mix is crisp and clear, resulting in a much less muddy sound than Labyrinth or Agony.  Furthermore, there is much more variety in Sidious’ songwriting.  All in all, Revealed in Profane Splendour is an excellent death metal album and an especially impressive debut.
