This Toilet Tuesday (12/8/20)


It’s list season, a time for retrospectives on our favorite albums of 2020, and yet here you greedy fuckers are reading about brand new music. For that I thank you, because you’re giving me job security and letting me rake in those sweet, sweet Toilet Bux™. This week’s list is pretty big and pretty diverse; Karhu and Hans are your guides through it this week, but don’t be shy about wandering off into the unknown to listen to something you might not have heard of.

JARS – ДЖРС III (P.O.G.O. Records) [Noise Rock/Punk]

Weird Russian noise rock anyone? No? Well, I’m not yet entirely convinced myself, but their last EP (featured here on the Free Flush) was so god damn fire that I remain optimistic. The promo text promises an equally diverse and equally noisy ride through a variety of genres. Plus the opener on the EP wasn’t exactly indicative of the rest either. 12/11/20 (Hans)

Heretical Sect – Rapturous Flesh Consumed (Vendetta/Gilead) [Black Metal]

A similar historic perspective as that of Wayfarer found expression on the debut EP by mixing black metal with elements of sludge. The sound has since matured into somewhat cavernous blackened death with a hefty portion of doom, often dominated by slightly melodic lead guitar and sometimes dipping into eerie atmosphere. It feels less unique than the first offering, but apart from that, I can find little fault in what’s available so far. 12/11/20 (Hans)

Chalice – Trembling Crown (High Roller Records) [Heavy Metal]
Listen to “Trembling Crown”

Though heavy metal, and it’s ‘epic’ varieties are on the rise now, Finland’s Chalice are no tailgaters. They weave into their songs grandiose and dirge-like melodies and elements from doom downcast doom, without ever giving up to the gloom. Their songwriting recalls the days of progressive rock, there’s nimble acoustic guitar solos and the production gives Trembling Crown a pleasingly mystic air, instead of highlighting it’s most metal qualities. 12/11/20 (Karhu)
