This Toilet Tuwednesday (7/5/23)


As ye hover above thy bowl,
An ancient quandary besets thy hole.
Dost thou wipe whilst sitting down,
Or dost thou stand to cleanse the brown?

This week, we’ve got breakbeat black metal, the world’s first instance of melodic goregrind, and a truly baffling ode to tennis, served through a dissonant mélange of blackened death. It’s quite a wild one, my dumplings. Time for stinky scuba.

Widow’s Peak – Claustrophobe (Independent) [Tech Death]

Widow’s Peak play tech death in the style of the early aughts—a twitchy, boundless energy fuses hardcore aggression together in a revolving door of riffing styles. From Beneath the Massacre noodling to Arsisian melotech, it’s a love letter to the MySpace autoplayers of the pre-Lolbuttzian era (replete with LoL rAnDom instru-breaks that I really appreciate). Fold in the M’arston production and you’ve got something both claustrophobic and inviting to explore. -Roldy
