This Toilet Tuesday (12/10/19)


Toilet Tuesday has returned on a wave of frost here in the northern US. If you live up here, consider staying home and listening to some new tunes instead. Karhu and Uncle Fuck have picked out a couple albums to check out, but there’s plenty more below.


Under the Pledge of Secrecy – Empire of Bastards (Independent) [Progressive Death Metal]

Didn’t know what I was getting into but Under the Pledge of Secrecy’s progressively flavoured, blackened melodeath sounds very much up an alley or two, mine too. It’s got the dynamics, the mix is decent and the riffs, leads and melodies are quirky and intense, bringing into mind a particular tech death band whose name I can’t recall for the moment, though otherwise the band would seem to lack ‘the tech’. 12/10/19 (Karhu)

Hanzel und Gretyl – Hexennacht (Metropolis Records) [Rammsteincore]
Listen to “WOLVES + WITCHES”

They advertised mechanized blastbeats and I was all for it. After listening to their single, “Wolves + Witches,” I don’t think they know what blastbeats are. With that said, if you got a buddy out there who doesn’t listen to anything heavier than Rammstein, their CD would make the perfect Xmas gift. 12/13/19 (Uncle Fuck)
