This Toilet Tuesday (6/21/16)


Welcome to This Toilet Tuesday! The metal gods have smiled upon us this week and have seen fit to grant us a bevy of strong new tunes. W. and Lacertilian have picked out a couple of their favorites for your listening pleasure, but that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Peruse that engorged list below and tell us what else we need to hear.


Earth Ship – Hollowed (Napalm Records) [Sludge]

Some of you may have noticed that I was a little less than impressed with Bedowyn‘s album a couple of months back. Their take on the sound heavily popularised by Mastodon and Baroness felt bland and lacklustre. Fortunately, it looks like we won’t have to wait long to have that void filled as German sludge stompers Earth Ship are about to drop their follow-up to 2014’s Withered. The Berlin quartet first caught my attention with the video for their track “Serpent Cult“, not just for the fact that they were all wearing crazy wolf masks, but also because these guys + gal know how to hit a filthy groove. Announcement of their upcoming record Hollowed took me by surprise, most likely because I’ve been searching for updates on Earthship and not Earth Ship. I still haven’t confirmed if they’ve added a space to their name, but one thing I can confirm is that come June 24th, I’ll be adding a space for them in the void between my ears. 6/24/16 (Lacertilian)


Cloak – Cloak (Boris Records) [Black Metal]
Listen to “In The Darkness, The Path”

Cloak are a new name to me, but on “In the Darkness, the Path,” the lead track from the band’s eponymous debut EP, the band rolls out a familiar sound, albeit one with some modern polish. On its surface, the track presents an excellent blend of hard-rocking riffs with a shiny coat of black paint. Dig a little deeper, though, and you’ll find some excellent interplay between the many elements at work that make the fist-pumping sound all the more engaging. The part that really sealed the deal for me, though, was the sequence at 5:05 when the drums take an understated cadence and really allow the sinister, drawn-out notes to coalesce with evil intent. Give me more! FFO: Tribulation, Wolvhammer, Fields of the Nephilim 6/20/16 (W.)


Sheidim – Shrines of the Void (Independent) [Black Metal]

Looking for blackened riffs? Look no further than Sheidim’s debut full-length Shrines of the Void. This Spanish quartet know just how to weave black and death metal together to make an imposing, malicious blend with compelling hints of melody and nuance. Just listen to “First Poison.” After that brazen intro riff, the band slides into a shadowy twin-guitar attack accompanied by relentless blasts and rasping blasphemies. Most intriguing, though, is the strangely beautiful solo that pops up around five minutes. I’m hooked. FFO: Suspiral, Morbid Flesh, Gevurah 6/24/16 (W.)
