This Toilet Tuesday (9/6/16)


Welcome to This Toilet Tuesday! As your ever-faithful guides over the ever-expanding horizon of the metal landscape, we’ve selected a couple of the best albums from this week to sink your teeth into. Check these out and then peruse that list for more; we might have glossed over something that deserves some time in the spotlight. Share your own picks in the comments!


Dwell – Innate (Blood & Ink Records) [Dissonant Hardcore]
Listen to “Scars of Grief”

Heed the call of the almighty SKRONK. “Scars of Grief” perfectly mirrors the frustration I feel at trying to write about it, with its rejection of groove in favor of math and erratic outbursts of flesh-pounding beats. There’s really nothing I can say about this that won’t be said a thousand times better by just listening to the damn thing, so go do that before my skull cracks open against this wall I’ve been pounding it against. 9/9/16 (Spear)

infecting the swarm

Infecting the Swarm – Abyss (Lacerated Enemy Records) [Brutal Tech Death]
Listen to “Obscuring the Seventh Sun,” “Spiral Fragmentation”

Though it might seem counter-intuitive, I prefer my brutal death metal to have a cleaner cut to it, maybe even with some melody in there(Unfathomable Ruination notwithstanding). Infecting the Swarm do this exactly right, with just enough nastiness to offset the overall polished feel of Abyss. There are moments of bleak melodies interspersed throughout the myriad writhing guitar riffs, and the bellowed, guttural vocals are as incomprehensibly savage as ever. It rips, and you’d be remiss to skip it. 9/9/16 (Spear)
