This Toilet Tuesday (5/30/17)


Welcome to This Toilet Tuesday! As I made the brilliant decision to write this at work and everything here is trying to kill me, I’m going to keep this brief. We’ve got lots of good stuff this week, including a bunch from bands I’d never heard of prior to this weekend, so dig in and you’re likely to find something cool. Black metal is particularly abundant this week, but there should be something for everyone down there.

Unleash the Archers – Apex (Napalm Records) [Power Metal]
Listen to “The Matriarch,” “Cleanse the Bloodlines”

Unleash the Archers have steadily improved with each release, and while Time Stands Still set a high bar, the two singles from Apex show that upward trajectory has no signs of stopping. “The Matriarch” showcases the band’s “fun” side, with high-energy driving riffs and catchy hooks. “Cleanse the Bloodlines” is big and epic, darker in tone, lacking neither melody nor headbangability. It goes without saying that power metal fans should have this on their radar, but I think people turned off be the cheesier side of the genre might be able to get into this one as well. 6/2/17 (Spear)

Birdflesh/Organ Dealer – Birdflesh/Organ Dealer (split- Horror Pain Gore Death) [Grindcore]

NEW BIRDFLESH! This is great news. Is there a full length in the immediate future? I fucking hope so. Birdflesh is so underappreciated. These new tracks depart slightly from previous works. They are a little more on the deathgrind spectrum. I’ve noticed a little bit of a black metal vibe to some of the earlier songs. Nonetheless, the songs are tight as fuck. If you’re interested in getting into grind but are stuck at that death metal phase, this could be a good place to start. Definitely a lot more grooves than previous works. If you liked the last Rotten Sound or Venomous Concept albums, you’re likely going to like the new Birdflesh. The new Organ Dealer rips fucking hard. But what do you expect from a band named Organ Dealer? Again, if you liked that last Rotten Sound (It was a badass album, ok!) or Gadget, then you will surely enjoy Organ Dealer. With a price of $6.66 for the digital release ($10 for CD)…you can’t go wrong and it’s a good way to make up for the fact you likely missed out on limited AxTx release that came out last week. 6/2/17 (BertBanana)

Phobia – Lifeless God (Willowtip Records) [Grindcore]
Listen to “Corpse Slayer,” “Damaged”

I’m going to be blunt: “Damaged” is probably my favourite grind song thus far this year. Combined with how ridiculous last year’s Phobia album was, my expectations are really high for this one. Phobia rarely disappoints, so if you’re a grinder, you might as well just cough up the $7 for the CD now. Even if you aren’t into grind, just pitch the $12 for a t-shirt. The gory details of El Presidente Trump being obliterated is universally satisfying. However, non-grinders, Phobia is a great starting point and both tracks are rather accessible songs. 6/2/17 (BertBanana)
