This Toilet Tuesday (6/25/24)


O Pandemonious Privy, O Coprolite Condenser, may Thy plumbing remain unclogged in perpetuum. This time we’ve got caveman shid, edgy angels, and Meltem? Nearly killed ‘im! There’s a smattering of genres in the Bowl this week; dredge to the very bottom (Disqus) with us, and discover your newest fixation!

Sear Bliss – Heavenly Down (Hammerheart Records) [Meloblack]

This morning, I didn’t know what a Euphonium was, nor a Baryton. It’s obvious by now I’m a sucker for auxiliary instruments in black metal, especially when they’ve melded into the compositions’ DNA. The brass and strings, paired with simplistic (yet emotionally impactful) meloblack riffing, create a sound that’s somehow comfy and energizing at once. With influences ranging from Amon Amarth‘s harmonized tremolos to the downtrodden cleans of Woods of Ypres, Heavenly Down transitions between genres with the ease befitting a band that’s been around three decades. Now, if you need me, I’ll be preparing for a desperate charge against insurmountable odds. -Roldy
