This Toilet Tuesday (5/2/23)


Y’all, it’s a bumper crop of banger crap this week. The ivory walls are stained with an expulsion of intriguing tunes—from drippy, moldering death to proto-metal/folk rock, it’s an embarrassment of riches that has grown my wishlist to an obscene 78 items. (*Laughs in Spear*) Just in time for BC Friday, I might add. Get to it, my dumplings.

SHODAN – None Shall Prevail (Time to Kill Records) [Death]

Something about the riffing in the preview track calls decay to mind—it’s not quite the nauseous lurch of OSDM melodies, but a faint vibrating as the guitars buzz against each other, flies fighting over the best spot on a carcass. The sudden turn to bluesy Dark Side of the Moon worship in the second half is utterly deranged (and inspired), which I suppose is only fitting for a band named after a maniacal AI.
