A Toilet ov Hell Premiere: New Void Ritual and More from Dewar PR

Share:

Dewar PR‘s November compilation is out at this very moment, and includes previously unreleased tracks from Void Ritual and Dhampyr, and showcases the newest music from Extirpate, We Deserve ThisNihilistinen Barbaarisuus,  and more.

Let’s cut right to the reason you clicked on this article – new Void Ritual!  New Mexico’s favorite son has released yet another black metal gem after giving us some time to recover from his spine crushing split with Barshasketh released back in February. The song is called “Nachzehrer,” and finds Void Ritual picking up right where he left off with relentless blast beats, atmospheric riffs, and a muscular vocal attack, and then building upon that base with some new elements. There’s a skosh more reverb in the mix, which when combined with the droning chants that surface a couple of times during the track add a subtly haunting and even spiritual feel to the music. While Void Ritual may be known for his bull-in-a-china-shop approach to black metal (and there’s still plenty of that here), this track hints at some evolution and refinement to look forward to on his promised upcoming full length. If you’re not familiar with Void Ritual, take a few moments to check out his two EPs on Bandcamp before diving into this track. Hearing Dan’s growth as a songwriter is key to understanding why “Nachzehrer” is so exciting.

There’s also an unreleased track here from depressive black metal veterans Dhampyr called “A Model In Heart Failure”. First of all, if you missed their newest release Oceanclots, I highly recommend giving it a spin here if you’re at all into DSBM. The raw and noisy production found on that album has been subdued here for a more ambient approach. There’s no screaming – only eerie, warped moans and anguish-filled cries that sound like some other-worldly animal being tortured in the woods. Flourishes of violin and acoustic passages lend a folk-ish atmosphere in certain places, but offer no relief from the song’s unsettling vibe, at times even enhancing it. It’s not an easy listen by any means, but it is rewarding if you like that feeling of uneasiness or want to know what it might be like to sit one thin wall away from a hallucinogen-fueled concert at an insane asylum.

The rest of the compilation consists of new, but previously released tracks meant to highlight and showcase a few lesser-known artists. A few of my personal favorites include Nihilistinen Barbaarisuus‘ “Let Them Perish,” from their 2015 album The Child Must DieExtirpate‘s “Unconventional Currency,” a single released in January, We Deserve This (Feat. Molitoth)‘s “Pacific” from their October album of the same name, and A Light Within‘s “Page #18 Grin” from their October EP Preface.

That being said, this compilation’s strength, besides of course the unreleased material, is in its variety. There’s something here for everyone. There’s some pit-ready hardcore/thrash in Chugger (an onomatopoeic name if ever there was one), a short but sweet ambient track from Will Z. (featuring Alice Artaud), some old school, anti-religion death metal from Thorns of Sin, armageddon-obsessed thrash metal (is there any other kind?) from War Curse, and even some recorded-in-a-cardboard-box raw black metal from Infernal Altar. Stream all 15 tracks below and you’re bound to find something here to tickle your pickle.

Hey everyone, we’re taking the rest of our regular posting day off to recharge Dubya’s batteries and to let Joe drink a post-workout protein shake. Feel free to shoot the breeze in this post for the rest of the day, or join us over at the Facebook group to see Jack Bauer’s endless stream of Fallout stuff. I also make fun of Randall Thor a lot. We’ll resume our regular posting schedule tomorrow! – W.

      It’s like in the great stories, Mr. Frodo. The ones that really mattered. Full of darkness and danger they were. And sometimes you didn’t want to know the end… because how could the end be happy? How could the world go back to the way it was when so much bad had happened? But in the end, it’s only a passing thing… this shadow. Even darkness must pass.

            I liked their new album though. Still didn’t make my top 10.

            Joking aside, my grandfather had those long ago (hemorrhoids), and it seemed painful as fuck. Knowing him, he was probably not letting others know how bad it was, but you could tell.

            Dude, I know. But I’m not gonna do what everybody thinks I’m gonna do and just FLIP OUT, MAN!

          • HA. Deal. Wanna know a fun fact?

            I have never held a baby before.

            #terrified

          • Celtic Frosty

            My mom used to babysit on the side so I’ve done my fair share of holding. Never changed diapers or any of that other fun stuff, though. It’s kinda cool that your first experience holding a baby will be your own.

          • Indeed. Should be an fun learn curve to overcome.

          • Janitor Jim Duggan

            I’ve held my cousins babies before. I’ve never changed a diaper or anything though.

          • Scroinklypoop McFartinPloppin

            I babysit, but changing diapers and giving baths is where I draw the line. Cleaning up messes and keeping them from turning any object into a hazard to themselves or others is enough.

          • Óðinn

            Yuck. I had to hold a bay for a TV episode I was in last year. Babies are gross.

            They’re both more resilient than you’d imagine and also incredibly vulnerable.

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            It’s just like holding a football. You can’t even tell the two apart.

          • Sir Tapir The Based

            Pro tip: once you’re holding the baby, don’t try to eat it. Apparently that’s illegal or something.

          • They call that a California Cheeseburger.

          • Scroinklypoop McFartinPloppin
          • HA we just watched these movies for the first time the other day. We have been missing out!

          • All the characters were great! I am surprised by how much I enjoyed it all.

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            God damn her forehead.

            I believe that’s called a fivehead.

            Yeah, no shit.

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            Nice nip shot. My only gripe with her, has always been her forehead.

          • Celtic Frosty

            Stupid babies skip neck day

          • COAL ROLL

            You need to practice bucking the car seat belt.

            If you don’t like the baby, you can trade it in for a new puppy at the local fire station. Totally a law.

          • Scroinklypoop McFartinPloppin

            Eh, not so terrifying. I end up having to do it, drunk or no, when my roomy’s kid (who’s just turned 3 a couple weeks ago) climbs up on something and has to get down. He simply gets on my back at this point and I lower him down.

          • Scroinklypoop McFartinPloppin

            Drink drink drink drink while you still can! And on a non-snarky part (I don’t have kids, but helped many many times with babysitting my roomy’s kid from 8 months old until now), get used to them knocking over EVERYTHING and knocking into EVERYTHING once they start getting around to moving around. And anything you fix them to eat will most likely get thrown back at you.

            I`m sure we go over that now. I think for now that is in select markets. Everyone here streams everything tv related so. One of my housemates decided to change everything. So pays and has to handle it. I don`t even think Verizon is an option here.

        So awesome. It’s the first show I’ve watched on the shitty premium channels I had to buy to get a decent price from Cox. Knowing my luck, the free subscription to the Starz package will expire before the show ends.

  • Janitor Jim Duggan

    The record store I go to is expanding and there will be a stage. I hope they get good bands to perform there. Maybe when they open they can get a band like Blackfoot or Outlaws to play there.

            What did you think of the follow-up Paralyzed?

          • Boss the Ross

            Well I feel like a dummy, I didnt know they had a second album. I will have to give it a listen or two. What do you think of it?

          • Lacertilian

            I prefer their first but there is some deep stoner material on the second.

          • Boss the Ross

            I listened to a few tracks, and while it is good, I think I prefer the overall sound of the first album. It has the thick, foggy, fuzzed out riffs that I love so dearly. The second album has a thinner, piercing sound to it. More Syd Barrett than Iommi.

      Probably not. It’s actually from Balkan folklore and is the term for a vampire/human hybrid.

        Might be where VHD got it from then. That’s the one and only place I’ve ever heard the term used.

      • Scroinklypoop McFartinPloppin

        Reading the Wikipedia article about VHD, you’re right. They got the idea from the old Balkan folklore. I thought they came up with the whole thing themselves.

  • Janitor Jim Duggan

    Geoff Tater Tot is coming to my area with his band. He’s performing Mindcrime. I’m going because I love Mindcrime.

    • KJM, Shake Zula

      You know that just what he’s calling his “band” now, right? They’re not playing Mindcrime live.

      • Janitor Jim Duggan

        Damnit. The venue said they’d be performing suites of Mindcrime and the hits

        • KJM, Shake Zula

          I thought he had a new album.

          • Janitor Jim Duggan

            Well I guess he’s not performing it.

          • KJM, Shake Zula

            I say save your money for when the real Queensryche comes to town. Besides, why would you want to see a half-assed performance of Mindcrime by a band that can’t play it led by a singer that can’t sing anymore?

          • Boss the Ross

            Daaaaaaayuum!

          • KJM, Shake Zula

            I say that as someone who has seen the real Queensryche 3 times(including a 1991 Mindcrime performance). I would much sooner see the current QR play it than Tate’s band of hired guns.

          • Boss the Ross

            That’s bad ass.

            I get what you mean. How is the current Queensryche singer?

          • KJM, Shake Zula

            Todd is a great singer. He almost does too good of a job of sounding just like Tate.

          • Boss the Ross

            I’ll have to check him out.

          • KJM, Shake Zula
          • m/

          • Boss the Ross

            I just listened to some of the new Queensryche and Operation:Mindcrime. I’d definitely go with QR.

          • Scroinklypoop McFartinPloppin

            O:M wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be, but it’s pretty forgettable.

          • Boss the Ross

            Sounds about right

          • Scroinklypoop McFartinPloppin

            Not really. He’s awesome, not doubt, but can’t switch or hold octaves quite like old school Tate. He’s pretty off key at times, from the vids I’ve watched of him. And he butchered Crimson Glory’s catalog when he sang with them. He definitely couldn’t hold a candle to Midnight!

          • KJM, Shake Zula

            He’s does just fine in the videos I’ve seen, especially Wacken 2015. Not a Crimson Glory fan so I have no opinion on that.

          • Scroinklypoop McFartinPloppin

            How can you NOT be a Crimson Glory fan?!?! Guy had Dane and Tate’s vocals, but with way more passion and a much darker touch than Tate. I’m guessing you’ve only heard ‘Strange And Beautiful’?

          • KJM, Shake Zula

            Whatever it was I heard way back when, I wasn’t impressed with it.

          • Guppusmaximus

            Oddly enough, you can already hear the damage the emulation of Tate has done to his vocal chords. I don’t think people realize just how demanding that style of singing can be especially when you have to perform as often as a band like QR does / did. Well, except for those people that think it’s purely falsetto and those people have never sang such material accurately. Sure, Tate might be somewhat of an asshat nowadays,but, his vocal mastery on the albums all the way up till OM including Empire is one to be respected (& for me, admired). While Todd might be able to pull off a better version of their hits in 2015, Queensryche’s latest album (while a tad bit better than Tate’s) is nowhere near the caliber of their classic stuff. It’s still very much evident that DeGarmo is missing.

          • Scroinklypoop McFartinPloppin

            Tate was the fucking man back in the day. When I did opera training, he was one of the guys I looked up to. He had a range and octave hold that was insane. As goofy as Mindcrime was, his vocals were the centerpiece. Now? It’s embarrassing, mostly because of his antics, and now because he puts it up on such a mantle.
