  • Talkin’ Meat and the Future with Bill Steer of Carcass

    Carcass is… well Carcass. They are the one and only, the first and the last, the greatest in the world and the oft forgotten. They are unfuckwithable in the purest sense of the term. I got a chance to see them back in August (yes I know I’m behind!) and had the unique opportunity to sit down with Bill Steer and talk with him about everything from vegetarianism to the nature of being in a band. While 15 year old Matt quietly peed his pants I couldn’t help but to be amazed with how collected and downright intelligent Mr. Steer is – a sort of death metal pioneer and visionary who still very much fits in the modern age.

  • This Toilet Tuesday (1/17/17)

    Welcome, flushalos, to This Toilet Tuesday! This seemingly constipated January has finally pounded some Pepto and spread wide its resplendent posterior, a powerful wave of new music gushing forth in all its putrid glory. Karhu, W, and I saved a fistful of the chunkier bits for further examination, but you can be assured that we didn’t catch them all. Check out the full list below for more good stuff and share it with the group! Continue Reading

  • Review: Gone Is Gone – Echolocation

    I am absolutely pathetic when it comes to keeping track of new releases. I often browse through the Toilet’s numerous posts highlighting such material, making notes to return to various releases on Bandcamp and such and then neglecting to. Inevitably, when the end of the year arrives, which my calendar informs me was quite recently, I scroll through the end of year lists of various Toileteers and remember that I have, once again, failed at keeping up with awesome new music. But alas, new year means new me, right?! To hell with all those posers who are going to spend two months in the gym and then quit. I’ll spend those months in front of computer, actually keeping up with new music…and hopefully I won’t quit. For now at least, I’m still on the horse, and I’m here to tell you my thoughts about the new album, and first full-length, from Gone Is GoneEcholocation.

  • Sunday Sesh: Show Us Your Siqqq Album Packaging

    Metalheads are notorious for buying physical media. There are a lot of reasons why we do it. Maybe we want to have a physical backup for our vast digital library. Maybe we want to feel that we’re doing something for the scene. One major reason we do it, though, is to get some of that sweet, sweet album art. Sure, not all of it is good, but album packaging is often rad enough to make it worthwhile. Today, I want to see some of the cool ways that bands have made it special to buy a little more than digital.
