This Toilet Tuesday (5/9/23)


What’s that? I can’t hear you over the tinnitus mÿztikal kôkhleal svsvrrātionz caused by all the raw black metal released this week. Elsewhere in the bowl, the blackened death sounds of spring are in bloom, and symphonic elements cozied up to a plethora of subgenres. The water’s getting septic, so you might as well swim!

Cronos Compulsion – Malicious Regression (Caligari Records) [Death]

Judging by the album art, ape #2 has just come into contact with this massive SLAB of death metal and obtained a single cerebral wrinkle—just enough to figure out how to pick up a rock and crowdkill his fellow simian. Malicious Regression is trog death at its simplest, and you’ll only need two things to enjoy it: a head to bang, and a comically large wooden club to bang other heads with. After all, what is a malicious regression if not a return to monke? -Roldy
