This Toilet Tuesday (9/13/16)


Greetings, and welcome once again to This Toilet Tuesday! I have returned from my poser-slaying sojourn, still sticky with sweat and body oil, to deliver the newest offerings from the metal world unto you. And what offerings they are! There’s a lot to be had here; we’ve picked out a few of the best, but if none of those tickles your fancy, there’s a lot more in the list below. Get at it and share your own picks!


Gatekrashör – Revenge at Midnight (Independent) [Speed Metal]
Listen to “Axecution Guaranteed”

Hail, true warriors and enemies of the false! Do you like riffs and wish you were stuck in a time portal that kept you infinitely cycling through the year 1984, when metalheads were noble and slew posers left and right, leaving their rotting corpses to pile in the alleys of Los Angeles? Then Gatekrashör is the wizard you seek. The speedy riffs, booze-soaked vocals, and pointless umlaut guarantee a good time. You’re headbanging. FFO: Angel Sword, Night Demon, Flotsam and Jetsam 9/17/16 (W.)


Aephanemer – Memento Mori (Primeval Records) [Melodeath]
Listen to “Unstoppable,” “The Call of the Wild”

With their upcoming second album, the French melodic death metal project Aephanemer is thriving to experiment a little bit with their tried formula. Sweet melodies are now welcoming some harsh singing, remembering the mid-melodeath moments that recall the monochromatic vocals from the Angela Gossow-era of Arch Enemy, or the Dutch band Izegrim. The evolving (and sometimes distracting) synths and keys are still on the road, but the bright riffing is sharper and clearer, compared to their debut Know Thyself. This could probably be more enjoyable than their first album, and I will definitely check it out based on these new elements showed in the two songs displayed. 9/16/16 (Link)


KYPCK – Зеро (Ranka Kustannus) [Doom]

KYPCK is back with their fourth full-length, continuing their Russian-sung, depressed, doomed-out crusade. More groovy and less melodic than is the standard fare for bands of this kind, KYPCK sticks out like a sore thumb – fully intentionally. FFO: Kauan, Sentenced, Solstafir 9/16/16 (Karhu)


Warfather – The Grey Eminence (Greyhaze Records) [Death Metal]

Just in case you weren’t already swamped with a massive backlog of this year’s death metal, here’s a new Warfather album to add to the pile. This is the definition of meat-and-potatoes death metal, but it’s hard to fault it when that meat is a perfect ribeye steak and the potatoes are loaded to bursting. Guitarist/vocalist Steve Tucker (you may have heard of him) continues to write lyrics as heavy as the mighty riffs, but they’re really just icing on an already delicious cake. Er, sauce on a steak. Food metaphor. 9/16/16 (Spear)
