This Toilet Tuesday (2/6/24)


O Carcosan crapper, O swirling sultan ov the abyss, thy waters transport our refuse, cleansing the world of righteousness. This week we’ve got the end of Dry January (thrash), Dire Straits death, and caveman weed slam. Depth? Not much to speak of—but I know you’ll find something, some nugget, a smear on the side, to fixate upon. Dip them toes, friends!

Theophonos – Ashes in the Huron River (Profound Lore Records) [Dissoblack / Hardcore]

Dire. Dissonant. Intense. Weird, but good-weird. This album sets out to recapture the magic of Serpent Column‘s 2019 avante-garde banger Mirror in the Darkness, and actually pulls it off.  Since this is the solo endeavour of an ex-Serpent Column member, I guess it shouldn’t be that surprising, but the output of dissonant black metal bands is notoriously uneven (or evenly terrible). That makes this record a solid accomplishment. If you’re looking for some disso experimental blackened hardcore that is an “account of a life spent in the rotten heartlands of neoliberal capitalism and a tribute to the vibrant underground music cultures that thrived before the second half of the last decade”, or if you just want to jam on new material that scratches the same niche itch as Serpent Column, give this a spin. -Eenzaamheid
