This Toilet Tuesday (8/4/20)


It’s new music time, friends, and it’s a pretty slow week that’s propped up by a handful of very promising releases in my opinion. Hans and Karhu have highlighted a couple of them for you to check out, but there are probably a few others that deserve our attention as well. Let us know in the comments what you’re jamming this week.

Faceless Burial – Speciation (Dark Descent / Me Saco Un Ojo) [Death Metal]
Listen to “Ravished to the Unknown”

Haven’t paid much attention to these Aussies so far, but now may be the time. “Forward-thinking/backward-looking death metal,” says the promo text, and that’s not the hogwash you might take it for. Roots firmly planted in OSDM soil, the branches reach ambitiously into tech territory, and aren’t afraid to be swayed hither and thither by creative drumming and adventurous composition. And if you’re among those who bemoan Ulcerate’s lack of riffs, let the last two minutes (roughly) of the preview track show you an alternative. Very curious about the full album. 8/07/20 (Hans)

Astriferous – The Lower Levels of Sentience (Me Saco Un Ojo/Pulverised) [Death Metal]
Listen to “Myriad of Grotesquerie”

Umbra Conscientia dropped their criminally underrated debut late last year, and with one third of the band in their pocket, Astiferous is willing to pave the way for a hat trick. If you’re looking for some death metal that’s well balanced between twisting tremolo riffs, chunky bass work and malevolence of the doom kind, complimented by an equally balanced mix, Astriferous’s upcoming EP should be on the shortlist for the most underrated label debut of 2020. 8/7/20 (Karhu)

Selbst – Relatos de angustia (Debemur Morti Productions) [Black Metal]

Having relocated from Venezuela to Chile within the ten years since their founding, Selbst’s black metal is of an even more international strain. Embracing the Icelandic vein of dissonance and the expansive leads of the French scene, imbued with the rigid rhythmic structure of the Norsks, the two songs presented whirl and curl and (help, how do I end this thing? Just listen to it already). 8/7/20
