This Toilet Tuwednesday (5/31/23)


This week’s release list was so shitty that putting it together left Roldy in a vegetative state, so I’m back on the golden throne to finish what he started. A Spearrogate writer, if you will. Indeed, a quick glance at the list seems to indicate that it fucking sucks (save for like Project Roenwolfe and Thantifaxath), so I’m leaving the job of finding anything that doesn’t to you. Back to the release mines with ye.

Thantifaxath – Hive Mind Narcosis (Dark Descent Records) [Dissoblack]

The vibe around here has been entirely too positive for too long, so let’s bring the mood down. Thantifaxath are known for their hideous dissonant music, and that hasn’t changed here, but the approach has. In their own words, “The album has two levels working in dichotomy with one another. On one level there is a strong resistance to something, and on the other there is a total acceptance of that same thing,” and that dichotomy is expressed quite explicitly in the tunes itself. I don’t want to say too much, but it’s theatrical and spooky in ways that the band has not yet explored, and I am eagerly anticipating the rest of the journey. 6/2/23
