This Toilet Tuesday (4/16/23)


O white one shrouded in fecal mist!

Once again we gather round the throne and mourn the lives it has claimed: Rolderathis was stricken with a bad case of work, the nefarious data claw used to compile this list needed repairs, and several bands got slashed from the list for being dickheads or looking a lot like dickheads. If there are any left, let us know. I’ve highlighted some stuff I liked; you’ll find the blurbs within the list this time because I AM THE MASTER NOW. Let us know what else you’re looking forward to.

All Will Know – Parhelion (Noizgate Records) [Melodic Death Metal/Metalcore]

Guenna – Peak of Jin’Arrah (The Sign Records) [Stoner Rock]

Haunted – Stare at Nothing (Ripple Music) [Stoner/Doom Metal]

Haust – Negative Music (Fysisk Format) [Black Metal/Hardcore]

I thought of changing the tag here to something like Grave Rock or maybe Wartrock, but then I decided to just tell you that this is ratty hardcore punk with slightly blackened vocals and a horror slant. It really does the album title justice.

Loch Vostok – Opus Ferox II – Mark of the Beast (ViciSolum Records) [Extreme Progressive Metal]

Maimed – Propagate Onslaught (Sewer Rot Records) [Medieval Brutal Death Metal]

Turns out it’s only medieval in subject matter, not instrumentation, but that’s enough of a breath of fresh air already, especially for the cover art. Great knuckle-dragging death with a Takafumi Matsubara guest spot on the preview track. That guy knows what’s up.

Mass Killings – The Coed Murders (Rotten Music) [Brutal Death Metal]

Melvins – Tarantula Heart (Ipecac Recordings) [Sludge Metal, Various]

Outworld – Sky Keeper (SDJ Records) [Power Metal]

Padus – Opera Funebre (Independent) [Free Doom Metal/Dark Ambient]

Paperclip – Natural Man Is the Enemy of God (Independent) [Death Metal/Hardcore]

In case the name wasn’t enough to get you interested, this is some blistering HM-2 death with merciless breakdowns and a few bits of powerviolence strewn in. Kurt Ballou jams this shit in the gym. [I’m sorry, it looks like you were trying to grow some wrinkles, would you like some help not doing that? ~Clippyrathis]

Peklo – Supostat (Satanath Records) [Black Metal]

Tomb Portal – Enthanatogen (Morbid Chapel Records) [Death Metal]

Tomorrow’s Rain – Ovdan (AOP Records) [Death/Doom/Gothic Metal]

Typhuzz – Typhuzz (Independent) [Stoner Rock]

Just the right amount of fuzz, an interesting song structure, and pretty nice vocals. I’m not bored, which is more than I can say about most bands in this genre.

Uttertomb – Nebulas of Self-Desecration (Pulverised Records) [Death Metal]

Vanden Plas – The Empyrean Equation of the Long Lost Things (Frontiers Records) [Progressive Metal]
