This Toilet Tuesday (8/1/2017)


Welcome once more to This Toilet Tuesday, your weekly music backlog generator. Hans and I had to fight our way through a colony of sewer-dwelling troglodytes to bring you the goods this week, but we have returned triumphantly. There was a lot of shit to wade through, but we found our haul. Jam these new releases and let us know if we missed anything we should know about.

Bonehunter – Sexual Panic Human Machine (Hells Headbangers) [Black Thrash]
Bear Penis

While I can neither explain that album title nor that cover, what I can tell you is that Bonehunter play some hella fun punk-infused black metal. The first of the two available tracks is already pretty nice, setting the stage with a little intro before embarking on a d-beat romp, but “Digital Evil“ blows it out of the water easily. I love the riffs, I love how nimble the song feels, and perhaps most of all, I love that extremely well-done robo voice in the chorus. Maaaybe Bonehunter could benefit from trimming their songs a little, but as it is, I’m still looking forward to this one a lot. FFO: Saccage, Black Monolith, wolfman dongs 17/8/4 (Hans)

Putrid Offal – Anatomy (Xenokorp) [Deathgrind]
Listen to “Anatomy”

Another week, another deathgrind release. This time it’s veterans Putrid Offal serving up a mix of grind and old school death metal. On the one track on offer, the grind manifests itself in chaotic bursts of energy and buzzsaw riffs being played somewhat faster than what you might be used to. The overall sound and the vocals, however, firmly root everything in death metal. This makes for a dynamic mix that manages to go through several tempos in under three minutes. If you fell like some of the OSDM revival bands could do with a healthy caffeine injection now and then, this one is for you. 17/8/4 (Hans)

Gravesite – Neverending Trail of Skulls (Xtreem Music) [Death Metal]

On first listen, Gravesite went instantly from a name I barely knew to my most anticipated release of the week. They don’t do anything new or even particularly special in the world of OSDM; they just do everything exactly right. Every riff is on point, the drums are fantastic, and the solos offer up some awesome Carcass-style shred. What it might lack in innovation it makes up entirely in every other respect. Don’t skip this one. 8/1/17 (Spear)
