This Toilet Tuesday (9/27/16)


Welcome once again to This Toilet Tuesday! You all know the drill; there’s new music and lots of it, and we’re here to help you find the stuff that doesn’t suck. There’s a surprising amount of good material out this week, though, so W. and I have taken the liberty of selecting a few that might have flown under your radar otherwise. Take a listen to these jams and hit that list below.


Deathcult – Beasts of Faith (Invictus Productions) [Death Metal]

Look, I know all of you are just frothing at the loins for new material from a certain death metal band whose name rhymes with Snack Mix (work with me), but if you need a break from your legendary death metal meal, might I suggest the wholly deranged offering from Switzerland’s Deathcult. This is old style death metal, with grungy riffs, crusty solos, and raspy barks, but this beast has a bit of mange. There’s just something off about this record, as if the people making it just aren’t quite right in the head, and that comes out when the rhythms and riffs get a bit seasick and start vomiting all over the standard OSDM song structure. It’s rad. Give it a spin. Then go back to Snack Mix. FFO: Possessed, Necrovore, Pestilence 9/26/16 (W.)


Impure Ziggurat – Serenades of Astral Malevolence (Magister Dixit) [Black Metal]
Listen to “Summoning Oort’s semen (Crawling into the serpents’ nest)”

Despite what a track name like “Summoning Oort’s semen (Crawling into the serpents’ nest)” would have you believe, this isn’t utterly filthy war metal or grimy, cavernous death metal. No, Impure Ziggurat play an oddly tight brand of blackened death with sewage-gargling growls bashing up against riotous, even victorious tremolo riffs while precision blasts batter and blister. I was expecting to get buried in 10 feet of excrement while jamming this, but instead I got my block knocked clean off with one devastating hammer blow. FFO: Svart Crown, Necroblood, Axis of Advance 9/30/16 (W.)


Doomed – Anna (Solitude Productions) [Death/Doom]

I like to think I’ve got a stomach for the disturbing, but the newest from Doomed makes me want to crawl under the covers and hide. Anna is very off-putting, coupling dense doom metal with a variety of creepy soundscapes. It builds its chilling atmosphere with a twisted sense of beauty, emotive leads and the occasionally sung line slithering over the tense, choking undercurrents. Give this a listen if you don’t feel like sleeping tonight. 9/26/16 (Spear)
