This Toilet Tuesday (11/8/16)


Welcome once again to This Toilet Tuesday! I have returned from my brief hiatus a happier and better-adjusted man, so let’s not waste any time in bringing that back down to normal levels. This week’s offerings are particularly harrowing, with the likes of Deathspell Omega and Downfall of Gaia lurking in the shadows. W, Lacertilian, and I have picked out a few that may have gone unnoticed otherwise, so jam these before hitting that list.


Akasava – Nothing at Dawn (Triton’s Orbit) [Doom]
Listen to “The Devil’s Tide”

If you like riffs, Akasava have your back like a buttcrack. The vocals may be a deterrent to some of you, but the power of that hard-rockin’, Sabbathian main riff in “The Devil’s Tide” compels you. Just find some spacegrass, lay low, and yet the universe expand. FFO: Mothership, Clutch, Red Fang 11/11/16 (W.)


Ellende – Todbringer (Talheim Records) [Black Metal]

When I first hit play on “Ballade auf den Tod,” the opening synth notes led me to believe I was in for a Summoning/Caladan Brood-style outpouring of high fantasy nerdery, but such is largely not the case. While there is a healthy amount of that slow, epic, brooding feel to it, but Ellende aren’t afraid to inject a few bursts of speed into the mix. Todbringer is massive and sorrowful; jam this one and maybe that sad skeleton on the cover will feel just a little better. 11/7/16 (Spear)


Asteroid – III (Fuzzorama Records) [Fuzz-Heavy Retro Stoner Rock]
Listen to “Last Days”

Continuing down the path they’ve been merrily treading since the mid-2000’s, rollicking Swedish stoner trio Asteroid are back with their third full-length fuzz-fest. After two excellent albums, the material on III continues in a quite a similar fashion, however there are some more introspective sounding moments interspersed throughout the prevailing sky-gazing wonderment. While the band have ostensibly been affiliated with space throughout their career, the nature of their organic riffing and relatively gritty vocals clearly shows that while they may have stars in their eyes, the soil remains deeply ingrained in their style hiking boots. FFO: Horisont, Graveyard, Brutus, the 70’s. 11/11/16 (Lacertilian)
