This Toilet Tuesday (6/8/21)


It’s Toilet Tuesday, and we’ve got all your new music needs covered right here. Well, perhaps not all; it’s a relatively light week on account of a whole lot of NSBM releases and not much of anything else, and we don’t cover that shit here, so the list is a bit small today. Take a look and see if something tickles your fancy, and as always, let us know if there’s something we missed.

Grief Collector – En Delirium (Petrichor) [Doom]

I’ve never heard Grief Collector’s instrumentalists’ other bands so maybe GC sounds exactly like them, but having Robert Lowe’s bitter ass for vocalist certainly tends to guide the train of thought. That is to say that several of his previous bands, doom legends each, some long before his time and no thanks to him, are evoked by Grief Collector. Named appropriately enough, GC are at their best when the try to mine the mourn on their leads, but spends much too much time with limp chugs instead. Lowe’s performance is hardly a career best, but not his worst work either and while he’s left to carry the weight here, he’s not always up to the task. Some promise, little actual delivery from Grief Collector here based on the two singles, but I’m hoping really hard they’ve ditched the chug-heavy approach elsewhere, or at least will come next time. And hopes, thoughts and prayers make the difference, right America? 6/11/21 (Karhu)
