This Toilet TuWednesday (6/21/23)


The sight of the argent gutbucket promises relief—finally, the possibility of purging, the end of stilted walking and clenched muscle. This week we’ve got a nice blackened crust on the inner ear, symphonic prog bands with more members than Slipknot (probably), and the first dungeon synth album that’s not about LotR. Get the flippers out, this is bound to be a deep dive.

Thornafire – Leprosario Lazareto (Great Dane Records) [Blackened Death]

When discussing South American extreme metal, you’re certain to stumble on a few concepts, such as not entrying, burneding, and dying. The ferocity of regional thrash and black metal bands is legendary; however, pristinely-produced melodeath is in relatively short supply. Chile’s Thornafire combines tech thrash’s staccato riffing with anthemic death metal into a style that’s both accessible and ready to rip your heart from your chest. And who am I to keep this thing caged up? -Roldy
