This Toilet Tuesday (3/24/20)


Good news: there’s a billion albums out this week to entertain you during your isolation.

Bad news: 99% of them are ass.

I exaggerate, of course, but it boggles the mind as to how dry this week feels despite the sheer volume of new releases. Maybe I just don’t like music anymore, I don’t know. Regardless, there’s a ton of stuff to sift through in search of that sweet aural ambrosia, and I’ve picked out a gem that might have flown under the radar otherwise. Let us know if you find anything else we should check out.

Mazikeen – The Solace of Death (Satanath Records) [Symphonic Black Metal]

Mazikeen demonstrates that symphonic black metal is way more fun when performed on 7-string guitars and tech death drummer on the kit. Who knew? In any case, The Solace of Death is all I long for a fun album with some solid riffs, raw as hell vocals, and absolutely insane drumming, replete with cheesy synths.
