Free Metal Detector: Radiation Blackbody

Not free metal detector … Free metal detector. Every so often I stumble across something I like listening to. And sometimes that something is up for free download. My typical routine for when this happens is to fist pump – one, maybe two times if it’s really good –  then listen to it all by myself and eat perilously dated leftovers. Well, that changes today! Because now I have a toilet-guild to share it with and we can jam it together through the righteous power of metal brotherhood. And the righteous power of the internet. Depending on how you usually get your music, this segment will either save you a few bucks or make it so you don’t have to cry yourself to sleep out of guilt and a swindler’s shame. It’s a win-win, so get in here!

Today is about Falling to Death Through Time and Space by Brooklyn bass/drum duo Radiation Blackbody. Their Bandcamp reads: “Former Defeatist and Anodyne rhythm section moves to the whip-hand end of slavery. Instrumental, as in no vocals.” Zzzzzzzzzzz. This is normally the kind of thing I wouldn’t waste my time on, but its outright free-ness inspired me to give it a try, and then its nebulous, technical groove slurped me in like a black hole. It’s surprisingly unboring and surprisingly dark for a duo of this kind. It gives me hope that if I were somehow able to make just one friend, we could make some killer tunes… Get it here, peasants!

  • CyberneticOrganism

    As soon as I conquer my unholy mountains of work, I’m checking this out.

    • Stockhausen

      Work schmerk.
      (Isn’t it weird that you had to change the ‘o’ to an ‘e’ for it to make sense from a rhyming standpoint? But if I wrote ‘werk’ or ‘schmork,’ it would have distracted from the original intention. Not that this write up did, or anything.)

  • Tyree

    My fried brain just oozed out of my ears.

    Sick shit dude.

  • Mother Shabubu III

    Let’s see…alchemic symbols on the cover – check.

    Bass and groove driven madness – check.

    I love.

    • Negrodamus

      I like that you became MS III.

      • Paris Hilton

        That isn’t even his final form!!

        • W.

          Super Saiyan Mother Shabubu?

          • KJM

            Do not make him assume his ultimate form.

          • KJM’s avatar says, “Engage the Quad Laser, Err.”

          • KJM

            We’re full of religion now, Fry Man. Everyone please, bow your heads and pretend to be serious.

          • Bow your heads, or we’ll bow ’em for ya!

          • KJM

            Yes, eggs or pot.

        • Negrodamus

          I shudder to think what the Toilet Ov Hell spinoff will be, lol.

          • Mother Shabubu III

            If you fuse three of me together with Polymerization, I become the Ultimate Mother Shabubu Dragon.

    • Alchemy is always a good sign, dude.

  • Son of a bitch, fine I’ll download it, RIP playlist, you were once young and short.

  • W.

    Wow, this is pretty interesting. I once thought it would be cool to have a rhythmic/percussive metal band with two bassists, two percussionists, and two (low-tuned) guitarists.

    • Stockhausen

      I’m in!

    • Poop Mango

      They don’t quite have the lineup you specify, but you might want to check out http://palehorse-uk.bandcamp.com/ They do have multiple bassists.

      • W.

        Que interesante?!?!

    • Between The Buried & Smee

      Don’t give Frankie Palmeri that idea. The ultimate breakdowns would be created.

    • Christian Molenaar

      I’m in a “double band” with two drummers, two bassists, two guitarists, two keyboardists and two singers. When we’ve recorded some stuff I’ll let ya know.

      • W.

        That’s a lot of people not getting paid. But yes, I would love to hear it. Actually, I just want to check out all the weird stuff you play.

        • Christian Molenaar

          Some day, Mr. former President. Some day.

  • Stockhausen

    Awww, I wanted a free metal detector.

    • Seriously, talk about click bait 😉

      • Stockhausen

        Just reeling ’em in over here, and basking in the cash. How rich are you off our sweat, Joe?!

        • I would like to see some stats for the site. Total clicks etc. It would be neat to see after such a short period of time!

          Maybe you could provide that information Joe?

          According to my Firefox, I have loaded the website a total of 440 times already!

          GL

          • Seconded!

          • Stockhausen

            Seriously, I bet it’s impressive. When it’s available, Joe needs to put it up in an article, and we all need to drink alone at our respective computers and have a party in the comments.

          • You mean a parade? It’s always a party in here lol.

          • Stockhausen

            Maybe we can walk through our places with our computer to simulate the parade?
            We should start a party planning committee.

          • We can record it, put it on youtube and take bets on how long it is before Axl posts it as news.

          • Ann Coulter’s Flaccid Penis

            And I will be the committee to determine the validity of the party planning commitee

          • Ann Coulter’s Flaccid Penis

            Cigars as well. And hookers. And blow.

          • Stockhausen

            But we’re all technically alone, so it’s SUPER not depressing.

        • W.

          I keep clicking my own posts to drive up my views!

          • Mook Styfawker

            Is this an analogy for how you got re-elected, Dubya?

          • W.

            What would you know about Democracy, Canadian?

          • Paris Hilton

            Is Obamacare implemented in the States or are those fucking Southern hillbillies still adamantly against helping their own people?

          • Ann Coulter’s Flaccid Penis

            It’s implemented, and working just fine, despite what Ted Cruz and the almighty shit-eater himself, the governor of my state, Sam Brownback, want you to think.

          • KJM

            Despite Speaker Boner’s best efforts, it has been implemented.

          • Ann Coulter’s Flaccid Penis

            Buuut the Republicans are still trying to drum up a lawsuit against Obama for “circumventing the process” to bring Obamacare into law, which is a load of bullshit and a huge fucking waste of their ever-precious money.

          • W.

            The GOP has definitely been a pain digging their heels into the ground this term.

          • W.

            It is working really well for some people, but it makes life really difficult for part-time employees. It seems to be more beneficial to people with poor health than very healthy young people.

          • Well that’s just true of any insurance pool.

          • W.

            True that. One thing that has been helpful to a lot of people is the fact that you can stay on your parents’ insurance till 26. Unfortunately, I turn 26 in September, so I have to buy insurance now 🙁

          • Welcome to Hell! One of the things that kills me are the ones that complain about the new insurance mandates like this, “Why should I have to pay for maternity care? I’m old! I’ll never use that!”

            Answer, “Because I had to pay for your diabeetus and cancer, you fucks (neither of which I am currently using)!”

            Lesson: Never let your ignorance about how things work keep you from complaining about it!

          • W.

            I work with an older professor who’s retired now, and I keep joking that I’m going to sign him up for a death panel because I’m tired of paying for him to stay alive.

            In all seriousness, our insurance system needed an overhaul, and hopefully they’ll work out the kinks.

          • what do you know about dem0nocracy, American?

      • Pagliacci is Kvlt

        Free Babymetal detector. Now THAT’S clickbait.

        • Jailbait*

        • Stockhausen

          Oooooh. I’d click that.

          It’s not what it sounds like.

    • Sorry to let you down. I can’t get anywhere near those things without breaking them.

      • Stockhausen

        That’s the perfect excuse, and all is forgiven.

            If that website is going to end in any way, I want it to be a battle between the two of them.

            My money is on Draiman.

          • That would be an apocalyptic situation lol. I hope it happens.

          • Ann Coulter’s Flaccid Penis

            I would like to join the Rapture ahead of this battle.

          • CyberneticOrganism

            I want their waves upon waves of back & forth comments to replicate exponentially, like black monoliths on Jupiter, blotting out the internet forever (except this site).

    • He shits them into the toiletovhell and they appear here.

      • Stockhausen

        Nailed it.

      • CyberneticOrganism

        No need to flush.

      • Ann Coulter’s Flaccid Penis

        Via the Poop Chute. That should be the name of some feature that we run here.

        • Get started on the Tube Technology! Fwoop!

  • Mook Styfawker

    I dig.

  • Damnit guys, I was supposed to get ready for work like ten minutes ago.

    • Ann Coulter’s Flaccid Penis

      Better hurry the fuck up then. Terrorism never sleeps.

  • Warheart

    I like it. More shit like this, please.

  • Mook Styfawker

    Update: fuck me this is good. Oh my god.

    • Yes! I’m glad people are digging it.

      • TrickleDownTacoRiff

        me dig also

    • Poop Mango

      Yeah. Only complaint I have is he could run his bass through some more shit to vary the sound a little bit. If you’re going to have a 2-piece bass/drum band, changing it up a little bit can break things up a bit. A gnarly fuzz or a EHX MicroSynth or something could put this over the top, but it’s still definitely very good.

  • Ya, this is cool music!

  • frozengoatsheadupanunsarse

    This has a high cromulence index.

  • CONAN THE MOTHERFUCKING KING

    …………..there is another artist ? called tommy lee folks.

    • TrickleDownTacoRiff

      wait wut?

  • Christian Molenaar

    I don’t know how you wouldn’t be sold on this from the get go. Defeatist and Anodyne were both great (if you like grind, you can get all of Defeatist’s stuff here: http://defeatist.bandcamp.com/) and “produced by Colin Marston” should really be all you need to hear to barf with excitement.

    • W.

      But do they skronk?
