This Toilet Tuesday (5/3/16)


That’s a big ol’ list of big ol’ releases. It’s Toilet Tuesday once again, and W. and I are ever-dedicated to bringing you the good shit (or at least the weird shit). There’s plenty more to be had than our meager four selections, though, so dig deep into that list and pull something out. There’s no telling what you’ll find and unleash to all our delight/horror!


Plasma – Dreadful Desecration (Rotten Roll Rex) [*gurgling sounds*]

This is just silly. I thought Shining Spear was joking when he referred to Plasma as gurgling noises, but here we are. Press play on that track. I’ll wait. Yup. Gurgling noises. Sure, there is some decent death metal going on behind those gurgles, but the gurgles are so prominent that nothing else matters. Do you like gurgling? Then I bet you’ll dig this. Do you dislike gurgling? If so, steer clear. FFO: Phyllomedusa, bullfrogs, pitch-shifted gore 5/5/16 (W.)

sun worship

Sun Worship – Pale Dawn (Golden Antenna Records) [Black Metal]

I touched on Sun Worship in my Flush It Firday article last week, but the name bears repeating. These German heliocentrists play fantastic black metal that straddles the line between corruscating Cascadian atmosphere and light-shunning orthodoxy with just a hint of cosmic progressiveness. Pale Dawn is composed of four long tracks each built upon celestial strings of notes that soar like Icarus ever higher and higher upon the solar flare of a fevered drum blast. The end result is a thrilling ride into the cosmos that reveals new facets of the dense music upon each listen. If you like slightly proggier black metal with world-building sensibilities, don’t skip this. FFO: Krallice, Wolves in the Throne Room, Fell Voices 5/6/16 (W.)


Bloodrain – V: Adora Satanae (Possession Productions) [Black Thrash]

If you’re one of those who likes their thrash with a little black (or their black with a little thrash), then look no further: Bloodrain have what you need. V churns out headbanger after headbanger, from pounding diminished thrash ragers to melodic tremolo-and-blastbeat passages. It certainly carries a lot of typical thrash and black metal tropes, but when they’re done this effortlessly and seamlessly, it’s hard to care. Jam this next time you’re feeling grim, but also need a Sadistic Ritual fix. 5/1/16 (Spear)


Scythia – Lineage (Independent) [Power Metal]
Listen to “Soldier’s Lament”

I don’t know a whole lot about Scythia, but based on what I’ve listened to, they’re a power metal band that doesn’t mind not sounding like a power metal band. “Soldier’s Lament” has more in common with Amon Amarth than it does with Stratovarius, but the majestic vocals mix just as well with the meaty galloping riffs of the former as they do with the bright optimism of the latter. It’s hard to say what the rest of the album is going to sound like, but if their past material is any indication, it’s sure to be a lot of fun. 5/4/16 (Spear)
