Getting Laid at Bandcamp XI

Welcome back to camp you Void dwellers.

Getting Laid at Bandcamp has been a weekly post ov mine which I am very fortunate to have thanks to Joe and every one else that makes this incredible site possible. My post is about sharing underground bands that I’ve dug deep out ov the dark abyss ov Bandcamp. When my write-up is posted the bands that you see are bands that I just found out about and have only listened to within a week or two; sometimes less than that.

I work 5 days a week full-time, I do freelance work on the side, plus I have a band that is going on a tour very soon that I need to prepare for. When I have time after work I sit down and go through hundreds ov bands and artists on Bandcamp for TOH and myself. This takes hours and hours to do until I find five artists that I think are worthy for my post. After I accumulate the bands that I want to post for Getting Laid at Bandcamp I have to listen to each album/EP/Demo multiple times and then write about each release. This is an immense amount ov time and effort for me which is layered upon all my other shit that is cvnting life.

Ok, I’ll stop blabbering on here and get to the point. I will continue to do this post but it can’t be on a weekly basis any more. This post will have to be every other week or every month. I would enjoy nothing more then to spend most ov my time digging for great bands and artists to share with you (some ov you) all, but life is chaos right now. Hopefully I’ll be able to do this post on a weekly basis again but right now it is unrealistic for me.

Enough about by boring cvnting self. Let us get to the blackened chaos and death!

SvartidauðiVenus Illegitima (2014)  Kopavogur, Iceland

“Venus Illegitima” is the first released track off ov Svartidauði’s latest EP The Synthesis of Whore and Beast which was released April 30th. “Venus Illegitima” starts out with ferocious drums while the guitars play a very eerie and dissonant overlay that adds a very unsettling atmosphere that bends the mind into a schizophrenic state ov blissful angst. The build up to this song is bone chilling and grueling which leads into mid-tempo blast beats and dissonant guitar riffs that are absolutely sinister sounding. The dissonant yet melodic guitar riffs are backed by creative and heavy drumming through out the song which adds a very intriguing texture. “Venus Illegitima” flows incredibly well for as chaotic as it is, which is a result ov great song writing and musicianship. Svartidauði are a band that you need to listen to if you are a fan ov Deathspell Omega. If you have not heard Svartidauði’s fulllength album Flesh Cathedral from 2012 I highly recommend listening to it.

AndhordPleroma of Uncreation (2014) Seville, Andalusia

Riffs ov hellish brilliance are provided in this blasphemous EP. Andhord are masters at delivering mean black metal brutality while also bringing the unsettling discordance. It’s this sick combination that really draws me into Andhord’s style. Andhord’s brand ov black metal is nothing breakthrough, but they craft their blasphemous art very well by adding captivating riffs, tight playing, and great production value. Pleroma of Uncreation is remarkably polished! I know a lot ov you TovH readers out there are not into a lot ov black metal because ov the raw production value but I think Andhord will interest some ov you lifelovers into joining the Void. If the first song Cauldrons of Sabbath” does not sent chills down your spine then I guess I have a back problem that I need to go get checked out.

Devouring StarS/T  (2014) Finland

This is one ov the best demo releases I’ve heard this year along side demos by both Qrixkuor and Ruine. According to the all so fucking reliable Metal-Archives there are no members in this band so my first thought was maybe the band wanted to keep their identities anonymous. I looked deeper and found that Devouring Star is a one man project, although I could not find a name ov the artist. Devouring Star is black metal with a twist. There is some Portal and Gorguts influence deep within Devouring Star’s black-metal formula that can be especially heard in the second song “Todestrieb”. The riffs are chaotic and the pronounced bass guitar has a twangy sound to it which almost comes off as jazzy at times. The drums are very prominent and thick especially during the the blastbeat sections. The vocals are mean-hateful sounding barks and screams that are terrifyingly brilliant. This demo may interest some ov you readers with a more experimental taste in brutality.

Devouring Star coincidentally posted a new song the day after I wrote this. Check it out and be damned!

Harvest GulgalthaNecrosophic (2014) U.S.A.

Blackened death metal that is as heavy as Satan’s Hell-Hammer hammering you deep into the Void. Necrosophic is a compilation album ov all 3 EP’s that Harvest Gulgaltha were set to release in 2013. This is a mid-paced blackened death metal album with elements ov murky doom and filth. The band puzzles heavy crushing death metal with mesmerizing and eerie doom sections that add an interesting yet dismal feeling ov dread. Necrosophic is certainly a punishing a filthy listen that goes deep into the Void where the black hate-filled tar lays beneath the decaying abyss. The vocals blend low growls and high pitched screams ov grim hate. The growls remind me ov Luc Lemay while the higher pitched screams remind me ov the disgusting style of Jo Gonzales (from doom band Oak). The production works for Harvest Gulgaltha’s style ov death metal in a sense that it’s murky but also clear. Everything can be heard in the mix fairly well, but the famous Incantation sound is very much present which adds that precious filthy grimness. I have a feeling our good pal Howard Dean will enjoy these guys.

MystruinGånget äro ljuset (2014) Stockholm, Sweden

Mystruin are a Swedish underground black metal band that crush all that is holy into angel dust which is ingested by the unholy and savage dwellers of the Void. This is unholy fuel for us. We need this unholy angel dust to keep our grim and hateful crusade ov destruction on going. Gånget äro ljuset is a ferocious onslaught ov unholy savagery. The guitars are buzzed out and sinister while the drums are unrelenting and yet also occasionally technical. The vocals are savage and primal while mixing satanic shouting and mournful screams. Gånget äro ljuset brings the pulverizing crush while also delivering a mournful doomy component that evens the album out quite nicely. This is not for lifelovers.


Stay Void and feed on the Unholy Angel Dust!!! Venom fucking rules you lifelovers!

    I’m in a very similar position, lifewise.

    I’m gonna check these out after work / over the weekend.

        Not this weekend, cause I work job #2, but the next weekend I have off, I wanna see Birdman brah.

        At some point in my life, not now, but at some point, I’ll really dive into David Lynch. I’m still in the second season of Twin Peaks slowly working through it.

        • Tyree Wears Trailer Pants

          Is Birdman playing in your area? It’s not where I’m at, fucking lame.

          • Edward

            Yeah, it got a wide release here it’s playing all over.

            “It’s where I’m at, fucking lame”?

            Gah? Goo?

          • Tyree Wears Trailer Pants

            Ha! I made a last minute edit there.

            Nice, I’ll have to check and see if it’s playing here then.

  • Mr.CustodialArts

    Who else has been at work, waiting for the lid of the toilet to be lifted? Awesome job, Tyree, love this shit.
    —————————
    -I saw TODAY IS THE DAY a couple of weeks ago-they were rad, as is their new record. The venue was quite small…and it featured a pool table.
    —————————
    -All this WINO business is FUCKED, but sadly expected. The SPIRIT CARAVAN show I was at recently featured WINO abusing the soundguy for a solid hour and a half-they still fucking RULED, though. He gave his microphone stand an uppercut.
    —————————
    -As I kissed my wife goodbye this morning, I left her with the words-“I’m off into the cunting void.”

    • Pagliacci is Kl/rke

      Ha! That’s the exact same thing I said as I kissed your wife goodbye this morning!

      • …AND what Mr. Bojangles said as he kissed my mom goodbye this morning.

      • Mr.CustodialArts

        I was wondering what that large mound under the covers was…a DEAFHEAVEN FAN IN MY BED. She has been TAINTED!

    • Edward

      As we were discussing yesterday via Le Toilet Ov Obskurity, meth is some real shit. I read a portion of Grim Kim’s article about Wino. Hope he gets it worked out, but damn dude is older and I think it’s less frequent when dudes with advanced years are able to kick their alcohol/drug issues. I’m by no means the end all authority on the subject though, and I have seen it happen.

      Did Today Is The Day have to move that oh so heavy, backbreaking pool table for their dive bar tour?!

      • Tyree Wears Trailer Pants

        That was a really well done article! There was a lot ov heart that went into that writing. I to did not realize he was as old as he is.

        • VV. VVears Trailer Pant$

          I saw them on tour with Howl and Crowbar. Saint Vitus killed it. srs. I have half of one of their drummer’s sticks. He kept shattering sticks, so I grabbed some of the shrapnel.

          • Edward

            The setlist complete with duct tape from Artificial Brain is one of my new, prized possessions.

          • VV. VVears Trailer Pant$

            I’ve got one of Tomas Haake of Meshuggah’s sticks too!

          • Tyree Wears Trailer Pants

            WHAT!?! Haake is untouchable! I’m super duper jelly.

          • VV. VVears Trailer Pant$

            It’s probably my most prized metal artifact.

          • Tyree Wears Trailer Pants

            I honestly don’t know how one plays the drums the way he dose. Incredible!

          • VV. VVears Trailer Pant$

            I’m partially convinced that drummers’ brains work differently.

          • Tyree Wears Trailer Pants

            They are a fucked up breed Dubs.

          • Lacertilian

            gotta have something to do with being Cephalopods..

          • Tyree Wears Trailer Pants

            I saw Wino with The Obsessed, that was pretty insane.

          • Mr.CustodialArts

            I listen to THE CHURCH WITHIN like it came out yesterday.

          • CT-12

            Saw that same show, one of my all time favorites.

        • CT-12

          Yo Tyree, did you ever get my email about bands to check out for Getting Laid at Bandcamp? My feelings won’t be hurt if you didn’t dig them and didn’t want to feature them, I just wanted to make sure you actually got the message since there was really no way to confirm you got it.

      • Mr.CustodialArts

        The GRIM KIM article was a solid read-as far as WINO goes, she knows of what she speaks. That guy fuckin’ rules-I celebrate his entire catalogue…and dude, when I saw the pool table, I really wanted to feel the effect it would have on my spine if I tried to lift it.

        • Edward

          That oh so heavy, spine breaking pool table.

          • Now I want to name my band Spinesnapper

          • CyberneticOrganism

            “HE’LL BREEEEAK… YOUR FUCKING BAAACK… THE SPINE SPLITTERRRRR!!!”

        • Pantliacci is Tr/iler

          I just read that. Looking at the pic of WINO there, I’m pretty sure he has the Pick Of Destiny tattooed on his left forearm.

        • CT-12

          I still haven’t read the article (just got off work) but just wanted to point out that when I saw Saint Vitus she was their merch person.

    • Spear

      Just saw Today is the Day last night. Fucking crushed.

    • CT-12

      Saw that Spirit Caravan show too, there were barely any people at it but they didn’t give a fuck and killed it. Probably one of, if not my favorite show I’ve seen this year.

  • Nordling Rites ov Karhu

    Svartidauði continues to impress with everything they make.

    • Howard Dean

      I’ve been a Svartidaudi devotee for awhile now. I bought their demo The Temple of Damnation and then Flesh Cathedral in my post-Paracletus fury to find a DsO peer/close cousin. I bought so many albums and EPs from so many bands. None captured the same spirit as DsO, but Flesh Cathedral was close. Brilliant album. They just know how to make the right sounds. I’m excited to see and hear everything they do in the future.

      • Nordling Rites ov Karhu

        I have too kept an eye on them. You might want to give Devouring Star a try, he has mentioned DsO one of his biggest single influences. If that mostly shows as shades only.

  • VV. VVears Trailer Pant$

    Devouring Star is brilliant. I can’t wait to hear a full-length from these bros.

    • Tyree Wears Trailer Pants

      Yes, I’ve looking forward to it myself. The new song they put out this week is incredible.

      Update: Also, I’m glad you joined the Trailer Pants party.

      • Nordling Rites ov Karhu

        Devouring Star mainman goes by JL, it’s his only (lonely) project.

        • Tyree Wears Trailer Pants

          Gottcha, thanks.

        • VV. VVears Trailer Pant$

          Nordling, I feel like you’ve been contributing a lot to this community lately, and we appreciate it.

          • Edward

            god damn right we do.

            Nordling >>>>>>

          • Nordling Rites ov Karhu

            I thank you for your kind words. And possibly continue to contribute in the future too.

      • VV. VVears Trailer Pant$

        Yah, this new song rips.

    • fvvvvvvvvvck it’s good!

  • GJ Tyree. I like this Harvest Gulgaltha, I’ll give everything another look later on in the day. I can usually dig anything “blackened,” amirite?

    • Edward

      Stay post-blackened skronkcore.

      • I can be a huge hipster when I need to be.

        • Edward

          I have been known to pose trve.

          • Dont make me listen to shoegaze, bro. We does it.

          • Edward

            Tyree and I have predicted grindgaze to be the next huge trend in hipster metal media.

          • Deathgaze. A la Fallujah’s next album will be.

          • Edward

            I can dig some Wolvhammer. I’ve played a couple of their records.

    • Tyree Wears Trailer Pants

      Yeah, Harvest Gulgaltha don’t fuck around. Heavy shit!

      • Who has a couple grams of unholy angel dust? Still legal, right?

  • FeelTheDarkness

      • OK, I have no more excuses. I’m gonna try out The Wire this weekend while working on the site.

        • Tyree Wears Trailer Pants

          YES! You’ll have an idea ov what the MDF atmosphere is like now.

        • Worth it, Joe. Show is the ass.

        • Nordling Doesn’t Wear Trailer

          It must be destiny,no coincidence can explain it. I -as recent as today- loaned the first season from my nearest library

        • you get to the interrogation room scene in episode two, there’s no turning back

        • Edward

          It’s one of the best TV shows ever made.

          • Tyree Wears Trailer Pants

          • Mr.CustodialArts

            She tips well.

        • CyberneticOrganism

          • CyberneticOrganism

            No problemo.

          • Tyree Wears Trailer Pants

            Plus the way homeboy smokes? Good lawd.

          • Mr.CustodialArts

            Makes life livable, and keeps the questioning inadmissable to boot!

          • Lacertilian

            it’s practically a given now that every detective is an alcoholic/drug user.
            It goes back to at least Sir Arthur Conan Doyle making Holmes shoot up 7% cocaine and bake opium heedlessly.

          • CyberneticOrganism

            It looks good on film, but I couldn’t help but think after the Xth beer and the Xth slug of whiskey they’d be passed out cold on the floor, not working diligently on old case files.

          • Lacertilian

            Must be something to do with not wanting the detective to seem like a nosey doo-gooder gone rampant.

          • the toilet welcomes you! hai

          • Lacertilian

            I forgot we had an in-house detective!
            Do you have any idea why the detectives are always played with a drug habit, Jimmy?

          • Edward

            This is a world where nothing gets solved.

          • Tyree Wears Trailer Pants

            Because you have a debt

          • Edward

            They really should have a better system for this.

          • Tyree Wears Trailer Pants

            To many amazing quotes.

          • Edward

            Can you see Texas from up on your high horse?

          • Tyree Wears Trailer Pants

            There’s nothing I can do about it, maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow, but… I’m gonna have a drink.

          • Mr.CustodialArts

            Rust was only wrong once-the light is NOT WINNING, HAIL THE VOID.

  • man @tyreegearhart:disqus, this GLAB is my favorite thus far! i LOVE this style of music

  • Matt Pike’s Sweaty Left Nipple

    Devouring Star is the tits.

  • Guacamole Jim

    Great GL@BC this time, Tyree! I’m digging the first two bands so far; am pumped to get farther down.

  • Oh man. This is my kind of GL@B. You rule hard and hail trailer pants.

  • CyberneticOrganism

    Excellent choices this week, damn Fridays for being workdays. Good luck with the whole life getting in the way thing.

  • Xan

    Killer bands! Sad to see Getting Laid at Bandcamp taken off a weekly cycle but I understand (the reason I’ve yet to do any “weekly” series). My wallet might start being happier as a result.

  • Further Down the Metal Hole

    I haven’t found many bands through this series, however, I have great respect for all the time and effort you put into these. Imma real happy for my pals in the terlet who like all the messy stuff.

    Only just started listening, but Svartidauði is something I’ll check out further.

  • dr.derelict

    i absolutely needed Devouring Star in my life.
