This Toilet Tuesday (8/21/18)


Good morning Toilet friends, and welcome again to This Toilet Tuesday. This week’s list is pretty short, but as seems to be the norm for such lists, it’s more good than bad. Karhu, Hans, and I have picked out a few of the more noteworthy ones, but you don’t want to skip the full list. Take a look down below and tell everyone what else we should be looking forward to.

Mantar – The Modern Art of Setting Ablaze (Nuclear Blast Records) [Sludge]
Listen to “Age of the Absurd,” “Seek + Forget”

If these singles are anything to go by, Mantar hasn’t started trifling with their formula. The drum and guitar duo vomit feedback-heavy sludge riffs with a straight up charred black metal edge to them, interspersing them with hoarse but sticky vocal hooks and doomed out passages. An additional thought has maybe been given to the atmospheric side of it all, but that’s a maybe. What they do is so strongly embodied in them and only them, you can’t help but to hope they’d move around a bit more, but Mantar is as Mantar does. And Mantar riffs. 8/24/18 (Karhu)

Lords of the Trident – Shadows from the Past (Independent) [Power Metal]
Listen to “Death Dealer”

Oh glory be, some new power metal that actually lives up to its genre tag’s lofty intimations. Lords of the Trident epitomize the spirit of USPM on “Death Dealer,” with fast and exciting riffs, strong tenor vocals, and a healthy dose of fantasy nerdery. This particular song isn’t super innovative, but even if the rest of the album follows suit, it promises to be a hell of a lot of fun. 8/24/18 (Spear)

Septekh – Pilgrim (Mighty Music) [Black Thrash]
Listen to “Damned”

Immensely fun thrash with sharp riffing and a simple structure; catchy verse, even catchier chorus, bridge, solo, done. No tricks, no experiments, just d-beats and satisfaction. Sometimes that’s all it takes. FFO Hellripper, Bonehunter 8/24/18 (Hans)
