  • Bump N’ Grind: Celebrating the Holidays with Elk and Owls

    Look, I get it. The holidays are a drag. You have to spend time with family members you’ve unfollowed on Facebook because you can’t stand to read one more political post. You have to spend some of your own hard-earned money on useless toys for your sister’s children rather than some of your favorite beer that you really need to take the edge off after work while you sit on the couch watching Stranger Things, eating leftover Chinese takeout and sullenly hoping that a plane engine drops through your roof. You have to hear Christmas music at work all day and even need to make a run to Saver’s to find some wretched sweater for that awful tacky sweater party at your office. It’s all such a drag, man! Well fret not, amigos, because I have some grind to blast your holiday blues away! So grab some eggnog, pull on some warm wool socks, and grind it out with the owls and elk while you barrel down the street in your antler-bedecked Mazda Tribute, smacking stars off the tops of the neighborhood Christmas trees with a candy-cane striped hockey stick.

  • Bump N’ Grind: Gettin’ Loose With Seuss

    It has been too long since we have Bumped and Grinded (ground?), ladies and gentlemen. Dr. Seuss was a wise man and if you need evidence of that, look no further than the header image above. The statement alone clearly translates to keeping things short and sweet. Therein lies the beauty of metal’s most uncompromising subgenre. You know what you’re going to get – unrelenting furious bursts of rage that come and go in the blink of an eye. And when done correctly, the payoff is always one that is rewarding to the listener. Enough with the small talk, let’s go forth and GRIND!!!!

  • Bump N’ Grind: Kaiju Bump, Kaiju Grind

    Normally, this is where the Mighty Dubya or Sir Ron Deuce start telling you about the low down in grind. But not today! You’re stuck with me and I’m here to bring you some Kaiju inspired beats and some Kaiju inspired riffs. Here at the Toilet we love our classic monster movies with a purple passion but we can’t always combine that with our love of music. Lucky for you, I have found two artists that did just that! And from different genres of music, no less.

  • Split 2016 Wide Open with Hadak Ura and Voice of Crows

    Last April, Hadak Ura crushed my dick with their abominable concoction of black metal and grindcore Forever Dying/Forever Dead. The short album was a brief rampage of blind fury and orcish rage that tore down all opposition and salted the earth just to ensure no life would ever return. Now, the fighting Uruk-hai of grindcore have returned with a new split, and this time they’ve brought friends and some new tricks.

  • Bump N’ Grind: Three Things Missed From 2015 and One From 2012

    2015 may be through with us, but we ain’t through with 2015. Over the course of the holiday season, I ran into some quality bands that are more than worthy of praise. There’s plenty of stuff in this edition of Bump N’ Grind that was so good, it floored me on the first pass through each release. Let’s give some praise to the genre that celebrates the obliteration of snare drums at the rate of AK-47 fire.
