This Toilet Tuesday (8/1/23)


O consumer of odorous offerings, today we bestow upon ye but a scant scattering of scat. This week we’ve got some Lazy River doom, dasharez0ne thrash u can lisen too, and one truly shiddy deathgrind split. Join us in the swirl, for all are welcome in the unholy bowl.

Besta – Terra Em Desapego (Lifeforce Records) [Deathgrind]

Up to this point in their decade-long history, Besta hadn’t written a song breaching the 3-minute mark; in this sense, Terra Em Desapego (“Land of Detachment”) is a fitting title as they distance themselves from the short outcries of grind. Maybe the singles are outliers (at 5 and 6 minutes respectively)? We’ll know on Friday, but I can’t think that far ahead as they’ve sandpapered (coarse grit) my brain to a high polish.

From melodic Carcassian leads to slithering, palm-muted trem picking, there are a smattering of ideas in each track, but the band avoids the riff salad pitfall with clever transitions that bridge styles with ease. As an owl with a kink for clinks, I must also point out drummer Paulo Lafaia’s excellent cymbal work (and overall solid performance) throughout. -Roldy
