This Toilet Tuesday (3/31/15)


Welcome to another Toilet Tuesday, fellow toileteers! This has already been a pretty strong week for new releases, but it appears that the backlog gods have decided to show mercy this week. There isn’t a whole lot of extraordinary new material, but what’s good is really good. Karhu, W, and I have picked our favorites. Now, dive into that list below and feel free to tell us how much we suck for missing one of those hidden gems. Have at it!


Ufomammut – Ecate (Neurot Recordings) [Doom]

Neurot Recordings continues their stellar record with another fantastic doom album. If you aren’t familiar with Ufomammut, get on that, because this band brings an interstellar, otherworldly heaviness to the tried-and-true worship of the riff. The invisible fingerprint of Neurot is definitely on this release, but that never diminishes the quality or ingenuity. So, do as KJM would do, and let Ecate take you on a trip through the stars. FFO: Yob, Electric Wizard, Sleep (W.)


Gurthang – I Will Not Serve (Immortal Frost) [Blackened Death]
Listen to “Nemesis,” “Levant du Serpent Noir”

Gurthang is a new one to me, but I had to check them out because blackened doom metal is often a recipe for deliciousness, and the way to Dubya’s heart is through his ear-stomach. Thankfully, my heartburn did not well up upon ingesting these tracks with my ear-holes, and I remain satisfied. These songs contain enough dynamics to please even the most hardened structuralist. Particles of light battle swarming darkness as dynamics swell and seethe. If you like your doom metal on the villainous side, don’t sleep on I Will Not Serve. FFO: Desolate Shrines, Ill Omen, all the other awesome stuff coming out of Poland


Black Witchery/Revenge – Holocaustic Death March to Humanity’s Doom (Nuclear War Now!) [Black Metal]

A split between these two bands deliver exactly what you expect: Pure. Fucking. Murder. If the first song on the second split by the two is any indication for the rest we’re in for a blast. It’s primitive and harsh and punishing and everything I wanted it to be really. After two more songs of, I hope, the same unforgiving black/death beating we get the lone Revenge track. “Humanity Noosed/Equimanthorn” is Revenge being themselves for ten minutes, from the chaotic intro to fast as hell blasting.  There are some slower bits too but they don’t much get in the way. You knew what you signed up for, now take it like a man. (Karhu)


Sulphur Aeon – Gateway to the Antisphere (Van/Imperium Records) [Death Metal]
Listen to “Titans”

There’s not a whole lot I can say about Sulphur Aeon that hasn’t already been said, but they’re definitely good enough to merit repeated mentions. One of my favorite things about this band (besides their absolutely crushing sound and ominous vibe) is that their vocalist actually enunciates. Novel idea, right? I love it when death metal has good lyrics, but it’s even better when you can understand them without having to read along. Anyway, at the risk of being redundant, Gateway to the Antisphere should sate anyone’s desire for mighty riffs. (Spear)
