This Toilet Tuesday (12/19/23)


O ceramic-seated one, O reservoir of release, where hast thy water gone? The year rapidly swirls down thy hungry mouth. This week we’ve got Man’s Name metal, updates to OSHA’s guide to unsanitary workplaces, and a new phase of the Bob Macabre Cinematic Universe. Heed the No Diving signs—it’s a bit shallow this week.

Brygmus – Augury (Dying Sun Records) [Death/Doom / Sludge]

The writhing riff that introduces “I Become the Mass Grave” is panic distillate—the perfect soundtrack for face-gripping in the throes of a very bad time. When the band pours some sludge over this grinding intensity, the track slows to a death ‘n roll stomp; I’m reminded of Ellorsith‘s menacing swagger. Augury features a new vocalist, Bogi, and though I’m not familiar with Brygmus’ past efforts, her powerful, phlegmy bellows form a nice coat of grime over the proceedings. I can only hope the other tracks induce a stank-face like that on the artwork! -Roldy
