This Toilet Tuesday (9/7/21)


Somehow Tuesday keeps happening, and it keeps leaving a steaming pile of new music on my front stoop. Fortunately for you all, I’m into that shit, and I’m here to parse through it all for you. This week’s new album dump is particularly odiferous, which is to say quite good; look at that list and tell me there’s not something down there you’re not excited for.

Aborted – Maniacult (Century Media) [Death Metal]
Listen to “ManiaCult”

Yet another series of lineup changes seem to have stripped Aborted of their previous full-lengths meloprog-ish tendencies, at least most of them, which will undoubtedly delight many a fan. As for me, I think they’ve gone back to a more generic sound and still can’t combat their earlier material in terms of memorability. For something that might as well be called The Sven de Caluwe show, he seems a little subdued here, but at least Impetus Odi promises his usual goodness. A sure fan pleaser, if nothing to write home about. 9/10/21 (Karhu)

Seven Spires – Gods of Debauchery (Frontiers Music) [Symphonic/Melodeath]
Listen to “Gods of Debauchery,” “Lightbringer”

Symphonic metal that isn’t terrible? It’s more likely than you might think! Not only is Seven Spires not just a third-rate Nightwish knockoff, they’re unambiguously good- no qualifiers necessary. Their penchant for grandiose orchestrations is helped along by the fact that each member of the band is very good at their respective instruments, and they’re not afraid to show it off for fear of covering up said orchestrations. It all weaves together into something as smart as it is melodic, and I’m very much looking forward to the full release. Also it’s kinda hilarious how obvious it is in a poppy song like “Lightbringer” that the bassist played for a couple tech death acts. 9/10/21 (Spear)
