This Toilet Tuesday (7/11/23)


O illustrious water closet, hold us fast in thy lidded embrace, that we may release the toxins of the day. May the kiss of thy waters cleanse us with the fervor of storms. This week we’ve got power metal disguised with a slam-ass name, Bethesda-core dungeon synth, and a psy/ambient/electronica album that somehow got onto M-A despite the fact that BtBaM still hasn’t. Strap on (heh) those flippers, we’re going overboard and we’ve got leagues to cover!

Somniate – We Have Proved Death (Lavadome Productions) [Blackened Death]

When the vocalist starts reciting dark poetry in a dispassionate monotone, you know you’re about to die in that pit. Somniate fits somewhere in the uncomfortable (but ultimately captivating) space between A Forest of Stars theatrics and Suffering Hour‘s hook-laden dissonance. With pristine production from V. Santura, you’ll hear staccato blasting and mouth harp with the same level of clarity—no easy feat when blackened death metal moves at this velocity. -Roldy
