This Toilet Tuesday (8/28/18)


It is Toilet Tuesday, my dudes. Time to get some sweet new releases in your ears. Hans and Karhu have a couple particularly solid suggestions for you today, but there’s more to be had in the bulk list below. Pick out your favorites and join me in zoning out for the rest of the day.

Majestic Mass – Savage Empire of Death (Caligari Records) [Black/Heavy Metal]

Between the clattering drums and the ghoulish, blackened vocals, melodies and riffs keep seeping through that elevate these Danish noisemongers above mere basement second wave worship. “Sanguine Dreams of Lust” swaggers along with a grooving doom rock riff; “Chaos Delight” shifts between near-DSBM trudgery and a driving, triumphant chorus; “Majestic Mass” itself muses how early Misfits may have fared as a doom band, complete with roar-along chorus. The means are primitive, but with a steady, mid-tempo stomp, they get a lot of mileage out of them. 8/31/18 (Hans)

Panzer Squad – Ruins (Testimony Records) [Thrash]

Hearing that name, you may be forgiven for expecting bland mid-00’s war-themed revival thrash. What you get instead is excellent early-10’s war-themed worship of the golden (i.e. earliest) days of German thrash. Don’t expect a lo-fi affair or sloppy playing though; Panzer Squad channel the Teutonic Three with clear, tight sound, all while keeping an attitude that feels like they’d still be welcome at a punk show. 8/31/18 (Hans)

Kommandant – Blood Eel (ATMF Records) [Black Metal]
Listen to “Blood Eel”

Kommandant continue on their chosen path of swarming, dissonant guitars, martial beat and a disdain for civilization’s silent slog. Their message conveyed through nigh-industrial black metal, colored with caustic death metal. Though amidst the pummeling blastbeats and horrific dirges lie seemingly less of the percussions that branded much of Architects, Kommandant hasn’t lost one bit of their bite. 9/1/18 (Bearboi)
