This Toilet Tuesday (7/22/2014)


Happy Tuesday, flushers. We here at the Toilet have been pounding the Metamucil in anticipation of dumping a new regular feature on you. Every Tuesday, Spear, Deputy Dipshit, Jack Bauer, and Flushgod Apocalypse are going to bring you a heaping list of the ripest new releases for the week. So pull up a stool and clench yourself for the unflushable new movements.

Temple of Dagon – Rituals of the Deep (Independent)
Crusty, thrashy, and dirty as hell, Temple of Dagon’s “Rituals of the Deep” is a monster of an album.  D-beats and chunky riffs abound with the occasional dual-guitar harmony flourish and tasteful use of blastbeats.  A well-mixed bass and throaty shouted vocals round out a package that would make any Great Old One proud. (Spear)


Vile Regression – Empires (Independent)
Vile Regression’s “Empires” is a perfect reminder of why metalcore should not be dismissed as a whole: every riff and harmony feels carefully calculated, but it all flows so well that it manages to retain an organic feel.  My only complaint is that the vocals feel a little thin in some places, but it’s easily overshadowed by the crisp production and excellent songwriting.  Add in a couple of clean pieces (very clearly Opeth- and Scale the Summit-inspired) and you’ve got yourself a winner. (Spear)


Martyrdod – Elddop (Southern Lord)


I was unfamiliar with Matyrdod before listening to the stream of their new album Elddop, but I became a fan the instant I pressed play! Crusty, metallic, melodic – d-beats reign supreme on Martyrdod’s fifth full-length. They’ll be supporting Converge (fitting) on their upcoming European run. (Flushgod Apocalypse)


King of Asgard – Karg (Metal Blade)

Listen to “The Runes of Hel”
It seems proper to compare King of Asgard to Amon Amarth, yet they take a different approach to Viking Metal.  Karg is not overly-cinematic but very dark, which breathes fresh life into the genre and gives King of Asgard a more trve feel over their Norse brethren. (Flushgod Apocalypse)

Crown the Empire

Crown the Empire – The Resistance: Rise of the Runaways (Rise)

Listen to “Initiation”
Hailing from Dallas, TX, this electronic infused, emoish-vocalized metalcore outfit has the Deputy wondering what kind of antics they will pull on their next release coming only a year after their last effort, The Fallout.  Radio-friendly, semi-catchy clean choruses mixed up with breakdowns and theatrical synths these guys are relatively friendly on the ears and no doubt talented, but I’d be really stoked to hear them slip a little more brutality in their upcoming sophomore release, The Resistance: Rise of the Runaways. While they may not be at the top of my playlist, they are not in the auto-flushing Toilet Ov Hell, so I’ll leave the ultimate flush up to you! Anticipatory Flushes:2-4/5. (Deputy Dipshit)


downset – One Blood (Epitaph)
Listen to “One Blood”
One of the first pioneers in the hip-hop infused hardcore genre, the boys from LA are back after a ten year hiatus from their last release, Universal.  As a teenager in the 90’s jamming their self-titled and “Do We Speak A Dead Language?” to the point of obsession, it was only natural it lead to sneaking to NYC to catch them at a hardcore show full of unity and chaos.  These guys put on one of the most memorable shows of my formative years and solidified my fandom for life.  The reunited downset. have a huge and important week ahead of them as they are playing the This Is Hardcore Festival in Philadelphia, PA later this week and One Blood will be released tomorrow. Before there was Turd Durst and the rest of the Hot Topic posers, there were Downset., the OG’s of the genre, the real mother-flushin’ deal.  To say this is highly anticipated by Deputy D is understatement of the year! Do yourself a favor and head on over to the Spotifizzle to check out their back catalog and start from the beginning. Anticipatory Flushes:0-1/5. (Deputy Dipshit)
