This Toilet Tuesday (4/19/22)


It’s Toilet Tuesday, and in a shocking twist of events, completing this week’s list did not leave me wishing for death at the end. There’s a hell of a lot of music on the way this week, sure, but it seems like the majority of it is pretty good; I think my Bandcamp wishlist went up by about ten items. In any case, there’s a lot of fun to be had this week, so hit that list and tell us what you’re jamming.

LiveWire – Under Attack! (Independent) [Thrash/Speed Metal]
Listen to “A Cold Day in Hell”

I’m gonna be honest here: based on that combination of logo and cover art, I went into this expecting some kind of memey 80’s throwback that was all cheese and no substance. While there’s definitely some cheese present (as one would expect from anything associated with speed metal), god damn can these boys riff. The main melody of the verse is absolutely wild and the singing- more polished, more power metal in execution than trad metal- delivers some mighty hooks. Never have I been so happy to be proven wrong- I’m very much looking forward to this thing hitting on Friday. 4/22/22 (Spear)
