This Toilet Tuesday (2/23/16)


Welcome, friends, to another Toilet Tuesday! This week’s massive list came out of nowhere, like that time you were chilling on your balcony and the guy from the unit above you threw up out his window. It was raw, chunky, and took hours for you to clean up, but you took some satisfaction in the spectacle of it all. The difference here is that you’re getting some sick tunes out of the heap. Enjoy!


Coffins/Ilsa – Coffins/Ilsa (split- Relapse Records) [Death/Doom/Crust]
Listen to “Tyrant” (Coffins)

Though I can’t yet speak to the Ilsa half of this short digital split, I can tell you that this Coffins track is hot hellfire. These Japanese graverobbers know how to OSDM hard, and this track is replete with ghoulish, Obituary-esque growls, tombstone-smashing crusty riffs, and that excellent groovy old-school drum pattern that just gets your shambling corpse move. You don’t usually think of cadavers as tasty, but this track makes a great case for the appeal of cannibalism.  FFO: Gutter Instinct, Asphyx, Autopsy 2/26/16 (W.)

Droids Attack – Sci​-​Fi or Die (Indpendent) [Proggy Doom]
Listen to “Brahma Astra”

I heard you like riffs? If that’s true, have I got a thing for you. Sci-fi obsessed dorks Droids Attack are masters of the riff, and “Brahma Astra” is one of the most rockin’ tracks I’ve yet heard in 2K16. Everything about this nerdy song, from the surprisingly hasty riffs to the stampeding drums, is geared to get your head banging, and by the time Brad Van begins shouting, “Bombs away! Bombs away!” you’ve nearly headbanged yourself into a coma. Thankfully the band locks into a tasteful groove and gives you a let’s you ride the rest of the song out on an exuberant high. Can’t wait to hear more. FFO: Clutch, Baroness, Sergeant Thunderhoof 2/26/16 (W.)


Krater – Urere (Eisenwald Tonschmiede) [Black Metal]
Listen to “Hunger of Ropes,” “Lust to Burn”

To be perfectly blunt, I don’t hold high expectations for most black metal bands anymore. It’s the single most prolific genre populating the new release list every week, with a heap of crap alongside all the good stuff. A lot of these artists seem to think you can just throw on corpse paint and head out into the woods with a two-track and shit out a masterpiece, but that’s not how it works. Whether it’s poor musicianship, recording, or the lack of any actual feeling, there’s always something that’s missing from these aforementioned bad releases. Bands like Krater make digging through all the shit worth it. Everything these other bands lack, they make up for in spades. The two tracks up from Urere left me floored, from the pure violence of the delivery to the tightness of the performance to the absolutely shredding solo on “Lust to Burn.” Don’t miss out on this one. 2/26/16 (Spear)


Voivod – Post Society (Century Media Records) [Weird Thrash]
Listen to “Post Society”

Target Earth found Voivod recapturing the sound that made them popular(-ish) after years spent among more straightforward material and the unfortunate passing of Piggy. Yet it wasn’t without new quirks, brought in by new personnel and years left behind. Post-Society includes two new originals, a cover of Hawkwind’s “Silver Machine” and the previously released tracks “We Are Connected” (split with ATG) and “Forever Mountain” (split with Napalm Death), the first of which sees Voivod exploring a (more) psychedelic side to their sound and the latter of which stands either foot firmly in Dimension Hatröss. So far I have enjoyed this as much as Target Earth, possibly more – it’d good to have Voivod back and to know they need not rely on nostalgia to survive. Suck it KJU. 2/26/16 (Karhu)

Oranssi Pazuzu – Värähtelijä (20 Buck Spin) [Progressive Black Metal]

We all know this is going to get reviewed on these pages, so there’s little point in going into detail yet. Värähtelijä sees the band delve further into the brooding, ambientlike soundscapes and slow development over long arches. It’s rawer than Valonielu and much darker, reaching towards the same void that encompassed Kosmonument -whether it avoid the pitfalls their earlier megalith stumbled on or not remains to be heard, but both pre-release songs have kicked some serious butt. 2/26/16 (Karhu)
