This Toilet Tuesday (2/20/24)


O Bidetzebub, O heated seat ov Hell, warm our derrieres from the depths of your demonic domain. This week we’ve got baby poop, promises from snakes, and amphibian booze metal. Everybody hop in Alvin, it’s a deep, dark abyss under these waves. I’ll see you all in Woods (Corn)Hole!

They Came from Visions – The Twilight Robes (Eisenwald) [Black Metal]

The Twilight Robes emanates an eldritch aura similar to that of Yellow Eyes, albeit with a greater emphasis on melody. Visions of moss-strewn boughs and flickering lights come to mind as tremolo riffs hypnotize with their fluidity and well-worn, muted tones. There’s a ghostliness, an incorporeal quality to the mix and instrumentation that meshes well with the band’s folk horror theme; together with the Medieval artwork and “Equinox Ablaze”‘s chanted cleans, the record feels like a relic of a (more) superstitious age. I’m not sure what’s going on with that goat on the cover, but I’m feeling like its handler having to wait ’til Friday to hear the album in its entirety. -Roldy
