Getting Laid at Bandcamp

Hello Internets! Tyree here. A bunch of you guys wanted me to post the best of my underground Bandcamp findings on the Toilet Ov Hell so here we are. Most of you know who I am but, those of you who do not know me I’ve give you  brief summary about my self and why I enjoy Bandcamp so much.

Aside from listening to great metal and going to concerts I enjoy searching & exhuming new artists from the internet. The one place that I find it best to discover great underground bands is on Bandcamp.com. Bandcamp allows me to follow others that have similar tastes in music as I do,  follow record companies, follow bands/artist, and I can stream the music from the site without having to pay. Another fun part of Bandcamp is the ability to see what friends have purchased. I’ve found tons of bands/artists by just looking to see what others have purchased. Bandcamp has become an addiction of mine and it has certainly put a dent in my checking account. Is it worth it though? I’d say definitely!

My first draft of this post contained around 55 of my favorite releases this year. That was a bit excessive, so Joe and I narrowed it down to five bands per post. Look forward to this becoming a regular thing.

Each of these 5 bands has released material this year.

Enjoy or not.


Skáphe – S/T

This is absolutely one of my favorite releases of this year. I’ve really never heard black metal quite like this before honestly. While being harsh, nightmarish, and claustrophobic it is also very captivating and beautiful. Give it a listen.

 


 

Ad Infinitum – Woven Within

This one-man black metal project from Eastern, Kentucky more than impressed me with the newest LP Woven Within. I hate to use the word epic but this is truly an epic work. There is some great chilling atmosphere, harsh buried vocals, and eerie chords. I recommend listening to this album while writing or designing. I listened to this while creating a Photoshop piece and the end result was horrifying, Hahaha.

 


 

Ruine – Winter 2014 Demo 7

This demo came out at the beginning of this year and got introduced to it by the one and only Kim Kelly a.k.a. Grim Kim. This project consists of members of Magrudergrind and Mutilation Rites and they play only the filthiest grittiest sounding sludge metal you can imagine. This is fucking heavy!!!

 


 

Exxxekutioner – Fear the Priest

Open a beer and thrash the fuck out to Exxxekutioner! Raw blackened thrash to the bone, need I say more?

 


 

King Dude & Chelsea Wolfe Sing More Songs Together…

Oh man do I love me some Chelsea Wolfe. Her voice is absolutely mesmerizing and the hair on the back of my neck stands up when I hear her sing. Both songs on this release are great but the very first song “Be Free” really latched on to me. King Dude’s voice compliments Chelsea’s very well and they sing some completely despairing lyrics that you must listen to.

 

There’s the first 5. I have a SHIT TON more just waiting to be posted for you guys. Hopefully you enjoy at least one of these bands.

  • IronLawnmower

    This one time, at bandcamp, I stuck a flute up my pussy.

    • Tyree

      Aw, it was a tuba not a flute. I would know I was there that year.

    • Did you wash it at least?

      • Count_Breznak

        Which one ?

    • Metaphysical Anus

      I stuck a bass up my ass. It was sideways.

      • Captain Ron Rico

        Tough shit! You wouldn’t believe what I had to do to substitute our broken fog horn! (notmyfault)

      • Mother Shabubu III

        If you’re a bassist, that’s probably the only action you’ll get with it.

        • geddy

          Bill Wyman would disagree.

          • CONAN THE MOTHERFUCKING KING

            In fact he went out with a 13 year old when he was in his 50’s ! They are married now , whatta guy.

          • Kevin Nash and Friends

            Hey dawg it’s Konnan. Nash wanted me to leave a comment, so here it is. Nash always talks about this site and how awesome it is. So dawg, we at World Championship Quad Tearing got your back. Olale! Viva La Raza! I’ve gotta run, got to go over how the match is going to go. Nash is going to be back soon, he’s going over his match. After the show’s over, we’re all going to get bawdy bawdy and rowdy rowdy at a casino as our pay per view on Sunday is in Vegas. Anyway, I’ll tell the other wrestlers to stop by this site.

          • CONAN THE MOTHERFUCKING KING

            i don’t know man, luger is looking to be in pretty bad shape these days, plus he was on hardcore pawn selling his entrance robes for ” charity” *wink, wink* very sad.

          • Damn. That’s awful.

          • CONAN THE MOTHERFUCKING KING

            yea it’s like what happened ? The guy was super in shape and now he fell apart , he’s only 56 ! When i was young in the 80’s it was always told to the public “there is no steroids used in wrestling, bodybuilding or sports of any kinds”. Thankfully that bullshit is over but the amount of individual athletes lying about steroid abuse is still at an all time high.

          • Kevin Nash and Friends

            He looks eerily like David Lee Roth now. It’s a shame he had a stroke, but I still don’t forgive him for the thing with Miss Elizabeth. Heck, I’m sure the Macho Man wasn’t happy about it god rest his soul. I miss him. The feud we had in 1999 was awesome and I loved spraying him with sewage. Then the thing with the white Hummer happened, and things got serious.

        • Metaphysical Anus

          Nah, I’m a drummer. Plus, I’m not seeking for the kind of action that you mean. I’m not really a people person.

    • God

      That is not what I designed it for. But I give points to the females for ingenuity.

  • Oh man I love Exxxekutioner!

  • Randall Thor

    My neckbeard friends are obsessed with Chelsea Wolfe.

    • W.

      Do they also like power metal?

      • Randall Thor

        I have two camps of neckbeard friends. Those that like power metal and are (surprisingly) very well socially adjusted, and those that don’t like power metal and are awkard/weird. I swear I’m not making this up, it’s so backwards but it’s true in my experience.

        • W.

          Strange.

  • W.

    I wanna see dat photoshop.

    • Tyree

      • W.

        That’s pretty gnarly.

        • Tyree

          Took me some time to make.

  • Mother Shabubu III

    I found a noise metal gem on there the other day. http://dirtdrinker.bandcamp.com/album/s-t-lp

  • If bandcamp was a chick, I would fuck her so hard.

  • Ron_Deuce

    Bandcamp is really great if you like music. It’s a nice luxury to be able to check stuff out and then donate your hard earned cash if you like something.

  • just unsubscribed from the MetalSucks mailing list. felt great!

    thanks @tyreegearhart:disqus! i heard the name King Dude before… oh yeah, he opened for Ghost (though we arrived late and missed him)

    • Tyree

      Yeah, I just started getting into is stuff. The dude is a great song writer.

    • LAMENTATIONS OF THE WOMEN

      another email went out today? I unsubscribed from the one that went out two thursdays ago. It was the first email I had gotten from them in a year. What on earth could be happening to their traffic that they’d need to do so much recruitment???

      • don’t forget! you can follow metalsucks on facebook and on twitter… and we’ll remind you every week!
        [comments section disabled]

        • LAMENTATIONS OF THE WOMEN

          the look like they’re doing just fine making up for the traffic with all those winners in the King Post. OMG what a shit show!

          • Fromwisdomtohate29

            Ugh, what a hot mess that article is.

          • i had to witness it for myself.
            it’s like the band asked all their followers to visit the site and post how the article is “all lies”

    • geddy

      It’s best to get off that bad batch of crack. Oh sure – the odd hit is…ok, but ye’ gods, man – keep it o a bare minimum.

  • Kazz

    I have to agree with the King Dude/Chelsea Wolfe assessment. King Dude also released a full-length this year that’s worth checking out.

  • FeelTheDarkness

    This blog needs more King 810!!!

    • INTERROGATION ROOM! NOW! MOVE IT BITCH!

    • YourLogicSucks

      I prefer The Darkness. DO YOU BELIEVE IN A THING CALLED LOOOOOVE

      • I actually like The Darkness.

        • YourLogicSucks

          I only know that song, but boy do I love that song (and music video)!

          • GET YOUR HANDS OFF MY WOMAN, MOTHER FUCKERRR OHHHH!
            https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hI9eVW4cTR8

          • YourLogicSucks

            That was magnificent. Also where can I get me one of them outfits?

          • geddy

            I’ve never really listened to this band. Does the vocalist always sing with that almost comedic falsetto approach?

          • CONAN THE MOTHERFUCKING KING

            not all the time, but enough.

          • Pretty much, yes. I’ve always thought of them as sort of a comedic act, although I don’t think it’s entirely intended on their part. They’ve got some good music though.

      • W.

        JUSTLISSENTOTHERITHAMOVMYHARRRRT

    • more ted nugent

    • Lord Ov Kapsko

      Babymetaru kudosai!
      ^_^ JATTA!

  • LAMENTATIONS OF THE WOMEN

    does anyone know what kind of amps/effect are being used to get that guitar tone in that Ruine song, and so many others in that sludge/doom vertical?

    • I think it’s an HM-2. IIRC, that’s what Magrudergrind uses.

      • LAMENTATIONS OF THE WOMEN

        that’s it huh? I think I have one of those in the gear pile.
        I woulda thought it was some combo of a fuzz/orange amp.

        • LAMENTATIONS OF THE WOMEN

          all this makes me think about how fun an open thread for players to talk gear would be. I am a massive gear nerd.

  • Negrodamus

    Tyree I am glad there are only five bands on here!

    Nice dude, I am looking forward to this being a regular thing.

    • Ikr, I saw the article was posted and braced myself for 4 pages worth of stuff. It is much better to split it up into segments though.

    • Tyree

      Hahaha! Yeah it was funny because Joe’s message to me was so nice and sincere. He’s like maybe you should just do 4 or 5 bands and not 55. But I’m sure sure he was thinking WTF this is ridiculous Tyree. Bad Tyree! Bad Tyree! Go Interrogation room now.

      • Negrodamus

        Joe is actually a pretty solid editor, but he is the only editor I have ever had lol.

        • Tyree

          Nah, he’s really good at it. He definitely helped me out with this. He jazzed it up real good!

      • Xan

        Out of every commenter on this website, I think you have caused me to lose the most money and for that I thank you. Now this saves me some of the time I usually spend perusing BandCamp to finally listen to some of it.

  • Negrodamus

    Tyree I am glad there are only five bands on here!

    Nice dude, I am looking forward to this being a regular thing.

  • Steve Smithwick

    Hell yeah Tyree, publishing good shit, I like it!

    I also like that you had to cut 50 bands out of this piece just to get it to 5. I like breaking it up into digestable chunks better; with your bandcamp habits, I’d say you’ll never, ever run out of fresh shit to write about. By the time you get through the 50 albums you cut out, you’ll have another 75 to write about!

    • Just imagine him sitting there trying to pick his ten favorite albums at the end of the year.

      • Tyree

        Fuaaaack dude!

  • God

    Tyree fuck you man. It’s like you knew I broke my bandcamp cherry last night and went on a downloading spree and now you release this article?? As if I needed another excuse to go back… *sigh* bandcamp here I come.

    • Steve Smithwick

      Tyree writing this column is going to have two effects.
      1. We’ll all be broke.
      2. Small independent metal bands are going to make unexpectedly large amounts of money.

      There’s a correlation between the two.

      • Xan

        Ah! You’re assuming that we aren’t all already broke from the other amazing bands that get listed every week. A twist in the myth has occurred.

    • Tyree
      • God

        I love this fucking blog.

      • CONAN THE MOTHERFUCKING KING

        Did you make that collage , it’s awesome, my favorite is the ultra scary goat from altered states. Fuckin’ Yikes

        • Tyree

          Yeah man, I sort of took elements from different horror movies and put them into this. A lot of my design work is this sort of style.

          • CONAN THE MOTHERFUCKING KING

            it has the feel of a vintage Napalm Death cover. I will try and test my much touted horror acumen and attempt to figure what movies the images are all from.

          • Tyree

            It’s funny you mention that! Old school Napalm Death artwork is what got me into my creating designs/artwork. Glad you can pick that out. Thanks!

          • Mr.CustodialArts

            I just assumed you uploaded SOMETHING from the EARACHE catalog…nice job!

          • Tyree

            Thanks man!

        • Almost as scary as Chloe, almost.

    • Owlswald

      Bandcamp is god’s gift to music. So in reality we have you to thank for it.

    • Fromwisdomtohate29

      Bandcamp is like crack. Only you don’t look like an emancipated zombie or an extra in a Ke$ha video after doing it.

    • Gurp

      Yo, God, if you’re getting into Bandcamp, you should check out MetalInjection’s column, Bandcamp Buried Treasure. http://www.metalinjection.net/category/bandcamp-buried-treasure

  • Owlswald

    Is Vukari on your list somewhere? Post rock mixed with black metal and it’s awesome.
    http://vukari.bandcamp.com/album/en-to-pan.

    • Tyree

      I saw this in some ones bandcamp collection but have not listened to it. I just added to my wishlist. Thanks!

  • Fromwisdomtohate29

    RUINE!!!

    They played a recent show, correct?

  • old_man_doom

    Goddamnit, Chelsea Wolfe is so good.

  • geddy

    Listening to Exxxekutioner, I was instantly back in Joe Death’s basement war zone and, listening to the latest batch of tapes he received in the mail from all over the world.

    The tape trading days were those of fantastic aural explorations.

    • Guest

      hey geddy, you were wondering about this on another thread…reply when you see it so I can come back and delete it

      • geddy

        ha

  • Holy hell, REALLY digging that King Dude & Chelsea Wolfe stuff, and it’s really weird because I’m not normally into that type of thing. Also: Exxxekutioner.

  • Xan

    I nearly blew out my speakers with Ruine.

  • crazytaco_12

    Kauan is one of my favorite bandcamp finds, all their material is NYP, very good stuff (sort of gothic/folk/atmospheric metal stuff, I dunno, GOOD) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Ar2y1PyTWg

  • Further Down the Metal Hole

    Glad you took this suggestion om board and are now blessing all of us with your finds. Soldier on!

  • actiondonkey

    that woven was good
