Welcome back to camp ya’ll. It’s been a while, and I’m sorry for that. Unfortunately I’m on tour right now, so I’ll be very distant from the Toilet. So, I figured I’d write one last post before I leave you guys and girls. This post is sort of all over the place musically so hopefully there is something you’ll like.

HTRKWork (work, work) (Australia) 2011

HTRK
Electronic music can be a hit or miss with me, but it’s usually a miss. HTRK hit me right square in the heart with Work (work, work). There is a back story to how I found out about HTRK that haunts me to this very dismal day.

I went to The Big 4 Concert at Yankee stadium in 2011 which was coincidentally the same year that Work (work, work) was released. My guitarist/vocalist Taylor from my dumb band and I went to stay at Jake Kolatis’s (Guitarist for The Casualties) apartment in Jersey City and had a blast! Jake got us into all kinds of great places for free which was incredible. We traveled to Yankee stadium on a booze cruise which meant a heavy load of pre-gaming. By the time we arrived at the stadium we were far beyond buzzed; we were pretty much hammered. We walked into the stadium and immediately went up to the beer counter to get our first Yankee stadium beer. As we approach the beer stand we see that beers are 12 dollars… Fuck that!!! We proceeded to go the whole concert with out drinking which was probably for the best. We made it through the concert but were so dehydrated from the heat and the alcohol; our heads were throbbing. We just wanted to go back to Jake’s place and sleep. After the concert Taylor tried to call Jake for an hour but he never picked up. He was in the pit while we were in the stands. After a while we started to really worry because we have no idea how to get around New York let alone get a subway back to Jersey City to Jake’s place. FINALLY, we hear back from Jake and meet him outside one of the exits of the stadium. He asks if we want to go to some goth bar in Manhattan. We could not refuse so we went with him which turned out to be one of the most fucked up experiences of my life. The bar was named Home Sweet Home and it was on a Wednesday which they called “Weird Wednesday.” We arrive to the bar and walked down the stairs and it was fucking WEIRD alright. The door was closed to the club, the music is pounding and there is a man/woman covered in make-up behind a booth collecting cover fees. I pay him or her my cover and some creepy fucking gimp dude opens the door for us. What I saw was FUCKED!!! The smoke was so thick from the fog machines that you could not see 2 feet in front of you, and what I could see was complete fuckness. There were body bags on the floor with people in them moving around while you step on them or over top of them. There was taxidermy shit and strange antiques all over the place while people that looked like they were from the band The Cure danced around the floor and made out with each other. The music that was playing in the the bar was so loud but it it caught my attention right away. I noticed that there was a a group of people beyond the heavy smoke watching a live performance at the end of the bar so I walked over to see what it was. I had no idea who the band was at the time, and I only found out recently. My main man Ethan Lee McCarthy from Primitive Man and Vermin Womb gave them a shout out in an interview I was reading, and he mentioned HTRK. I was listening and slowly realized that this was the group that was playing at the Manhattan bar 3 years ago. 

Depressing is the first word that comes to mind when listening to this album. The album, while somber, is also very beautiful. I did actually buy this album on vinyl and am expecting it any day now. I really don’t know too much about these guys other then the fact that I just realized who they are and I dig their mournful sounding music. Give them a listen and free fall into the black and heavy abyss.


AureoleAlunar (United States) 2014

Aureole

Fallen Empire Records has been unstoppable this year when it comes to their releases from incredible black metal bands. Alunar is a near perfect depressive ambient/atmospheric black metal album, and it’s created by a very young Ukrainian. Markov Soroka at age 19 puts most atmospheric black metalers to shame. While listening to Alunar I feel a strong and heavy scene of despair and loneliness. Loneliness is a powerful feeling and it can drive any recluse into madness and rage. This album will make everyone that is lonely feel even more alone and every un-lonely person feel the grief of those who are dreadfully alone in this world of shit. Desolation and complete loss will infect your weak minds. Complete eternal downfall into the heavy black abyss is what is achieved in this listen. Be prepared to meet the grim reaper if you have not already.


IsmNativity (Niagara Falls, Ontario) 2014

Ism

Add some grind, doom, and hardcore into the blender and push blend and you have Ism. These guys go full out and everything is hard hitting and destructive. Ism at times remind me of Full of Hell with their song structures and intensity. The album can be ferociously fast at times and then be dreadfully slow and crushing at other times. Ism are not breaking any new ground here, but goddamn can they deliver the fucking aggression that makes any unstable punk-rocker want to punch their enemies straight in the fucking face. It’s Friday Hump Day and we all need to vent the fuck out with some angry tunes, so go on and let Ism inject the rage into your hate filled veins; it’s the perfect medicine for your miserable life.


BurrowThe Collapse Of Time (Pennsylvania) 2014

Burrow

Burrow play some heavy sounding doomy sludge that is as thick as the tar pits of the dismal underworld. This is sludge so dense that the stone you throw into it does not sink. The stone makes a minor impact and festers for eternity before it finally dissolves to the bottom of the abyss. There are definitely some influences that can be picked out on this, the most upfront being Neurosis. There is even some early Mastodon influence that can be heard throughout the album. The pace of the album is slow, but the crushing melancholy and creative song structures create a captivating and irresistible urge that draws the listener into Burrow’s tar pits which implode your body into oblivion.


Sabbatic GoatImprecations of Black Chaos Wellington (New Zealand) 2014

a2703486898_2

Ahhhhh, here is some War Metal for you Satanic Warriors out there. This demo is filled with primitive aggression and blasphemous hatred. The demo starts out with an atmospheric intro that adds suspense and fear that sends cold shivers down the spine. The suspense finally ends with a mean guitar riff that leads into pummeling drum blasts and savage screams of chaos. This is an unrelenting album that suffocates you in burning napalm while the flesh melts from your bones and leaves you craving death. This is a young band so hopefully they can crush us with a new EP or full length very soon. Be prepared to be completely annihilated when you hit play.

AzizaThunderpunk? Jesus (Minnesota) 2014

a2302007551_2

“Thunderpunk? Jesus.” is absolutely the correct response to this fresh debut from Minneapolis sludgebastards Aziza. Is it thrashy? Yes, yes it is. Does it doom? Yes, yes it does. Are the riffs? Yes, yes, they are. Get in here and dig on some Midwestern mudcandy.

            Didn’t I say the other day that anyone playing an elf-race was a scurb? GL you disappoint.

            Also, the only way to WoW is to Moonkin. edit: BOOMkin

            MY MOONKIN DANCED FOR ME ONLY

          • Pagliacci is Krampvs

            What do you think of the new boomkin rotation for WoD?

          • BLVKKBEVRD’S FŒTID VBDVCTEES

            I quit long ago Pagliacci. What did they change?

          • Pagliacci is Krampvs

            Solar/lunar eclipses are no longer accrued, they’re more of a timed event. And now there’s only one DoT, but it’s effect changes depending on which solar/lunar phase you are in. So you can’t stack two DoTs right off the bat.

          • BLVKKBEVRD’S FŒTID VBDVCTEES

            What’s the effect on DPS?

          • Pagliacci is Krampvs

            I’ve only played mine to get through the pre-release quests, but just from that little bit it felt nerfed. It was definitely hard getting used to the rotation after learning to love the MoP rotation. I’ve been playing my frost mage since the expansion came out and sort of regret picking it as the first of my 90s to get to 100. Single target dmg and survivability for frost mages is da poop now.

          • BLVKKBEVRD’S FŒTID VBDVCTEES

            Which is weird to me, frost mages were dope single target pvp. I only had capped dr00d (of course), SK (offtank), and Warrior (pvp). Talking about it makes me wanna pick ’em up (my battle.net has been hijacked a couple times, and probably dead by now)

          • BLVKKBEVRD’S FŒTID VBDVCTEES

            I actually just got back into my battle.net accnt because of you, Pagliacci!

          • BLVKKBEVRD’S FŒTID VBDVCTEES

            that would be Demon Souls

          • oh really? cause i’ve beaten demon souls once. shall i pick up dark souls??

          • BLVKKBEVRD’S FŒTID VBDVCTEES

            My 1000hrs played says you should pick up DkS2. Might be worth waiting for the rehash version coming out in Apr for PS4 if you dont have money to spare (used copies should be cheap tho). DkS2 is a very much more polished game and the mechanics are superb in comparison with Demon Souls (edit: the real issue is the player base for PS3 has dwindled a bit, so finding summons is an issue in regular game cycle)

          • VVorld Peace

            Irrefutable.

      • BLVKKBEVRD’S FŒTID VBDVCTEES

        I’mma keep saying that from now on.

    Fine work Tyree!

    GL

    • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

      Listening to Aureole now. I dig. Fallen Empire is a great label too. And fuck yes Sabbatic Goat!

    • HessianHunter

      Aziza + beer = correct

  • Hubert, Goat ov Doom (and Void

    People should really stop making pictures of me while I’m performing my Satanic Rituals. Fucking Fucks

  • Renan Ribeiro

    I’ve never watched Under the Skin. Should I correct this?

    • Edward #negrod4eva

      Me either, someone pls respond.

      • VVorld Peace

        Well, someone forgot to post where he got his image, so I had to reverse image search. Google headlines would indicate it may be a good film for fans of Miss Johansson.

        • Edward #negrod4eva

          OH. I heard of that.

        • Renan Ribeiro

          Is anyone not a fan of ms johansson?

        • Yep, it’s pretty good. PS, I certainly wouldn’t mind giving her a stinky pinky, or maybe an Alabama Hot Pocket.

    • It’s good, but quite strange.

  • Death

    After consulting my anus, I found out that we like Aureole, Sabbatic Goat and Burrow.

    • Edward #negrod4eva

      OH SHIT *reaches for brown paper bag*

      • BLVKKBEVRD’S FŒTID VBDVCTEES

            Sweden and Finnish don’t sound anything alike. Two different families.

          • BLVKKBEVRD’S FŒTID VBDVCTEES

            One of my exes moved to Sweden to be with a junkie, so I hate sweden.

          • Death

            I hate Sweden as well.

          • BLVKKBEVRD’S FŒTID VBDVCTEES

            Finland should just invade Sweden, no? Use your floating castles and drop hellfire and brimstone down upon them.

          • Death

            Why the fuck would we invade them? We are friends.

          • BLVKKBEVRD’S FŒTID VBDVCTEES

            Oh…. that’s just the ‘Murica in me. Then why do you hate Sweden?

          • It’s from Bullwinkle. I think they were speaking Swedish or something.

          • Death

            Why is your face so sad, oh dear leader?

          • I just ate some inferior American food and my butthole is plugged up. It’s like Pacific Rim in my colon right now.

          • Death

            That reminds me, I tasted surströmming today. Worst decision ever.

          • What on The Flying Spaghetti Monster’s green Earth is that?

          • Death

            It’s fermented herring.

          • Like lutefisk?

          • Death

            It’s kind of similiar to lipeäkala. Both are horrible.

          • Of course, I don’t. I really smile when you say you like something 🙂

          • Death

          • Death

            Didn’t you say that you were writing an article about music from your country? I’m looking forward to it.

          • Can you help me decide, mate? I have 28 bands/artists that I can cover. But I don’t know if I can make a series or one article for the entire scene.

          • Death

            Well, these things aren’t really my speciality. I guess you could do a two or three parter? Or reduce the ammount of bands/artist to your favourites.

          • Thank you, Death!

          • And every time you think about him, you touch yourself?

          • nope

          • I’ll leave you two alone with your usual music:

      • HessianHunter

        My attempt to poetically describe Aziza’s brand fun, stomping, party-hard sludge. It’s not like there’s an established “mudcandy” scene in the Midwest, haha.

        • VVorld Peace

          is there an established mudbutt scene in the Midwest?

        • BLVKKBEVRD’S FŒTID VBDVCTEES

          I thought there was gonna be some sexual element. I am disappointed again today!

  • Stockhausen

    How in the blue friggin’ blazes did you remember what the band sounded like enough to recognize it three years later, not to mention the distracting environment. I can hardly remember a new band I heard the night before. Tyree really is on the next level.

    • VVorld Peace

      Don’t you remember? In the interview he said he has a photographic musical memory, duh!

    • Simon PhoenixKing

      We’re talking about a man who willingly stapled his balls and shrugged it off like it was a clipped toenail. Tyree is not fucking human.
