This Toilet Tuesday (12/29/15)


Welcome to the final Toilet Tuesday of 2015! As this is a fairly slow week (and I’m going to be travelling as I finish writing this), I’m going to keep it short. You know the drill: good stuff below, followed by the rest of the stuff, followed by your stuff. Dig through that list and see what we might have missed.

dendritic arbor

Dendritic Arbor – Sentient Village/Obsolescent Garden (Independent) [Grindskronk]
Listen to “Keratoconus”

Dendritic Arbor already dropped one killer release this year. I would have been totally cool with them taking it easy, but no, the quintet just had to go and record another EP of scabrous, riotous chaos. If you missed Romantic Love, let me give you the skinny on Dendritic Arbor. They play mathcore, but a much more deranged version of the type proffered by The Chariot or Dillinger Escape Plan. If you press play on “Keratoconus” you’ll hear a mixture of grind, skronk, math metal, and noise. Intriguingly, though, I’m hearing a lot more black metal in this track than on anything from Romantic Love. This is audible chaos for the intrepid metal fan. FFO: Okazaki Fragments, Oblivionized, Genevieve 12/30/15 (W.)

dawn of a dark age

Dawn of a Dark Age – The Six Elements, Vol.4 Air (Nemeton Records) [Black Metal]
Listen to “Argon Van Beethoven (1%)”

Dawn of a Dark Age caught my attention with last year’s Water for its unconventional (but effective) use of clarinet over black metal chaos. Fire, released earlier this year, saw a noticeable improvement in both production and songwriting, and Air takes it a step further. The angry parts are angrier and the jazzy parts are jazzier, and it all comes together in a package that feels much more coherent and complete than the previous two. If you like your black metal with a dash of weird, then this one is for you. 1/1/16 (Spear)
