This Toilet Twosday (2/2/23)


Alright, I’m over it. There’s too much goddamn music this year already, and we’re barely a month in. I’m declaring a moratorium on metal releases until we’ve listened to everything that’s already out. That said, in the event that everyone ignores me for some reason, we’ll continue rounding up new albums and shitting them out into these lists.

Soulmass – Let Us Pray (Independent) [Death Doom]

Bloodborne continues to play the muse for metal nerds with a love of nasty riffs and eldritch horror. Soulmass is hardly a newcomer on the scene; they’ve been at this for just about a decade at this point, and the experience shows, with Let Us Pray being some of their most finely crafted material to date. Maybe that’s just my pro-Bloodborne bias coming through, but it feels nastier, spookier, darker than before. Either way, my Pthumeru Chalice runneth over with riffs, and death metalheads will want to check this out regardless of the lyrical source material. 2/3/23 (Spear)
