This Toilet Tuesday (5/10/22)


Toilet Tuesday comes around once again, and boy is this one a doozy. Usually I find myself overwhelmed by a ennui at the end of putting these lists together, having blasted bits of songs into my ears that I don’t necessarily consider bad, just not particularly enthralling. This week, however, there is an abundance of high-quality material on the way; there are almost certainly a number of releases on the way you’re going to be interested in. I’m personally planning on hitting most of this list come Friday, but I’m interested to hear what all you’re looking forward to as well.

Hellhaim – Let the Dead Not Lose Hope (Ossuary Records) [Speed Metal]
Listen to “Devilin”

I’m a sucker for good, plain old speed metal, and Hellhaim brings all the wailing vocals, shredding guitars, and old movie samples one needs to make it good. “Devilin” shows that they’re not afraid to get a little weird with the formula, too, and I’m way into that. Partway through the song, it cuts away to a bridge underscored with some slick Spanish guitar and carried by operatic vocals. Definitely unconventional, but given the genre’s propensity for over-the-top everything, I’m inclined to say it works. 5/13/22 (Spear)

Entgeist – Res Gestae (Independent) [Black Metal]
Listen to “Briefe aus dur Isolation”

With apologies to every other black metal on this list today, Entgeist shot straight to the top of my to-listen list upon hearing that first riff. It’s rare that I stop to listen to a full song while putting these lists together, and it’s even rarer that I replay it five times in a row; “Briefe aus dur Isolation” threatened to keep me from getting this out on time. That mid-paced militant groove the song opens on is fantastic, and the momentum never slows from there. Immaculately paced, great mix and tone, a sweet guitar solo- it’s almost criminal how good this is. I have high hopes for the rest of the album based on this single. 5/13/22 (Spear)
