I sense more darkness in your future…

Colorado’s Nightbringer has always dished out a particularly cacophonous brand of black metal, nursing straight from the tar-dripping teat of Baphomet alongside Deathspell Omega and Dodecahedron with a fixed determination to eschew even the faintest notion of accessibility. Now, a brand new scary-Latin-titled song from their upcoming scary-Latin-titled album, Ego Dominus Tus, is streaming over at Stereogum.

Surprisingly, “Et Nox Illuminatio Mea In Deliciis Meis” foregoes much of their trademark dissonance, focusing instead on a concentrated hellblast of deranged quasi-melody slightly more approachable – but no less evil – in nature. Everything is enshrouded in a thick, viscous synth-driven ambience and accompanied by the awfully convincing vocals of the infernal ar-Ra’d al-Iblis (real name Carl). His inhuman snarling melds with bending, contorted leads at 2:25, and the result is absolutely diabolical. It’s hair-raisingly evocative and undeniably sinister. This song just made Ego Dominus Tus my most anticipated release, people.

Enough drivel! The only reason I’d ever go to Mexico is to buy Bubbaloo in bulk. Likewise, you’re here for one reason – to stream this thing. Blast this and tell me what you think about it – and it better be good!

Season of Mist is dropping Ego Dominus Tus on September 30. Don’t miss it.

Nightbringer


  • SMOHLG

    Yup, they brought the night.

  • Scrimm

    The atmosphere on this is awesome.

    • Tyree

      Agreed. Phil Collins would definitely approve of that reverb.

      • Negrodamus

        Do you like Phil Collins? I’ve been a big Genesis fan ever since the
        release of their 1980 album, Duke. Before that, I really didn’t
        understand any of their work. Too artsy, too intellectual. It was on
        Duke where Phil Collins’ presence became more apparent. I think
        Invisible Touch was the group’s undisputed masterpiece. It’s an epic
        meditation on intangibility. At the same time, it deepens and enriches
        the meaning of the preceding three albums. Christy, take off your robe.
        Listen to the brilliant ensemble playing of Banks, Collins and
        Rutherford. You can practically hear every nuance of every instrument.
        Sabrina, remove your dress. In terms of lyrical craftsmanship, the sheer
        songwriting, this album hits a new peak of professionalism. Sabrina,
        why don’t you, uh, dance a little. Take the lyrics to Land of Confusion.
        In this song, Phil Collins addresses the problems of abusive political
        authority. In Too Deep is the most moving pop song of the 1980s, about
        monogamy and commitment. The song is extremely uplifting. Their lyrics
        are as positive and affirmative as anything I’ve heard in rock. Christy,
        get down on your knees so Sabrina can see your asshole. Phil Collins’
        solo career seems to be more commercial and therefore more satisfying,
        in a narrower way. Especially songs like In the Air Tonight and Against
        All Odds. Sabrina, don’t just stare at it, eat it. But I also think Phil
        Collins works best within the confines of the group, than as a solo
        artist, and I stress the word artist. This is Sussudio, a great, great
        song, a personal favorite.

        • SMOHLG

          Good god, Tyree opened the flood gates with that one.

        • W.

          Is that from American Psycho? I’ve actually never watched it.

          • Tyree

            Yupper.

          • Negrodamus

            It is. It’s a pretty good flick. I dunno if it’s as good as fans make it out to be but it is pretty good and worth watching. I heard the book is excellent but I have not read it.

        • Tyree

          I’m more of a Peter Gabriel guy.

        • i am a gigantic Genesis fan, as well as Pete Gay and Phil Collen solo material.

          i enjoy almost all genesis except for the period between artsy prog rock and polished ’80s pop, it felt like an iffy transition period to me.

          @disqus_4E0xQtrX2p:disqus i give you one small piece of homework, cause i know you’re busy:

          https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aDgh3C6klMQ

          • Negrodamus

            Quote or not, I can still check out this track! I like the song, it’s a shame that’s all, but I’m not too familiar with Genesis or Phil Collins.

          • KJM

            “Billy Don’t You Lose My Number” is a good Phil solo track.

          • CONAN THE MOTHERFUCKING KING

            It’s like a slicker pop version answer to SD’s ricki, now there was some great musicians.

          • KJM
          • Negrodamus

            Pushing play on this now.

          • CONAN THE MOTHERFUCKING KING

            I like collins first couple of solo albums, and i really like mama ( both the song and video (which is a litlle disturbing and dark). But i hated illegal alien and we can’t dance kind of broke the camel’s back for me. Great drummer though.

          • KJM

            Mama is a good song.

        • RuIN?

          Feed me a stray cat.

  • Welp, now I wanna try Bubbaloo…

    • Negrodamus

      I also clicked that link.

      • W.

        It’s got what plants crave!

        • SMOHLG

          Water? You mean like from the toilet?

          • W.

            Our toilet flushes with electrolytes.

          • SMOHLG

            It’s what posers crave!!!

  • CÖÄL RÖLL FRÖM THE TÖILET BÖWL

    Today has turned into one of the BEST days I’ve had in a long time for finding new unflushable tuneage….between this and the slam….this Bro ain’t gettin no work done at all

    • Negrodamus

      If the only music I attempted to listen to came from the Toilet Ov Hell, I would not be able to keep up.

      • Randall Thor

        Idk, I’ve listened to most of it (except the slam post) and have also made it halfway through Bolt Thrower’s discography today

        • What a solid discography.

          • Randall Thor

            Just finishing the IVth crusade. A friend and I had a disagreement on their style from 4th and on, so today I’m listening to see which one of us is right. I claimed that they have done victory laps since IVth crusade, whereas he claims that they have only been doing that since Mercenary.

          • Pffff he’s just saying that because they did away with blastbeats after War Master.

          • W.

            @masterlordsteeldragon:disqus and @disqus_9CmX83EGqz:disqus, we should tackle a Warhammer post at some point. Probably include Cocke O’Steele.

          • pls.

          • old_man_doom

            Oh fuck, please me too! I know some tasty 40k jamz

          • W.

            Word.

          • The Satan ov Hell

            I could help you all laugh at Debauchery for being a bad SFU clone

          • W.

            Every lap is a victory lap for a Space Marine.

          • Cock of Steele

            I think a good article idea would be which OSDM bands represent a certain chaos god. Like Autopsy-Nurgle, Edge of Sanity-Tzeentch? etc. We can’t use one for the Emprah of Man cuz that radiant motherfucker is definitely power metal all the way.

          • W.

            I think Atheist is a better representation of Tzeentch.

          • Cock of Steele

            Huh, now that I think about it, yeah. Tzeentch is the one who understands Atheist. Khorne probably thinks they’re a bunch of pretentious progfags.

          • W.

            Would Disma be Papa Nurgle?

          • Cock of Steele

            I was thinking his brand of DM would obviously be anything gross with stuff about zombies or disease, etc. But then that leaves the question of where would cannibal Corpse fit in, cuz that’s a lot of gross out topics but a lot on the gory “Khorne porn” side.

          • W.

            Blood for the Blood God! Skulls for the Skull Throne!

            Maybe Obituary? CC is a good fit too.

          • Cock of Steele

            I thought Deicide as well. Now that just leaves Slaanesh, Who seems closer to colorful/horrifying shit like BOTDF than any regular death metal band. but if there’s any bands that would fit that, maybe you’re cabinet should be addressed?

          • Fromwisdomtohate29

            Lord Belial or Vastum would be Slaanesh.

          • The Satan ov Hell

            Bolt Thrower would be Khorne in my eyes- BATTLE BLOOD SHED WAR

          • CONAN THE MOTHERFUCKING KING

            The only thing that dissapoints me about bolt thrower is that Martin V Drunen never got to cut an album with them only tour.

          • The Satan ov Hell

            Bolt Thrower’s been great since In Battle and never stopped delivering in my eyes

        • Negrodamus

          You, sir, are a better man than I.

          • Randall Thor

            Then I switched to a performance of Mozart’s Requiem performed in the ruins of the Sarajevo National Library. Talk about intense.

      • the Toilet Ov Hell has saved us from listening to Emmure, Babymetal, and King 810.

        • HappyFunTime

          All hail the Toilet!!

        • Captain Ron Rico

          We sure avoided those rocks.

        • Negrodamus

          I have never listened to a single Babymetal song, but I should.

          • SMOHLG

            I am perfectly ok with never hearing one.

    • Randall Thor

      At this point I’m just going to upvote anything you do or say because of your name/picture.

      • CÖÄL RÖLL FRÖM THE TÖILET BÖWL

        Umlaut!

  • Randall Thor

    Nightbringer are indeed a strong foe, but the light will prevail!

  • W.

    I’m going to scourge myself like that albino dude from The Da Vinci Code for not checking these guys out sooner.

    • SMOHLG

      His name was Silas :-/

      • He was Silas in name only, not in muscle or radiant smile.

        • SMOHLG

          :3

          • W.

            (´・ω・`)

          • srsly doe. Do you want to do an edition of Swellin’ to the Jammiez?

          • W.

            Could it just be footage of him flexin’ so that we can all be mirin’?

          • I’d click.

          • “Click here to learn his secret!”

          • SMOHLG

            Uuuuuh, I could give it shot. What all would I need to send to you?

          • Hit me up in that other place and we can go over it.

          • W.

            If you make me listen to Tony Horton, I’m going to be so pissed.

  • Christian Molenaar

    lol’d at “the infernal ar-Ra’d al-Iblis (real name Carl).” That’s like finding out Ginuwine’s real name.

    • Negrodamus

      I also chuckled.

    • W.

      Trey Azagthoth’s real name is George.

      • Christian Molenaar

        When I hear George I imagine George Kollias or George Fisher. When I hear Carl I imagine this.

          • Tyree

          • Christian Molenaar

          • Tyree

            Now that’s a sexy man!

          • W.

            Logjammin?

          • Tyree

            Yup, He’s here to fix the cable.

          • CONAN THE MOTHERFUCKING KING

            peter stormare is awesome. He is in so many movies and tv shows it’s easier to list the projects he HAS’NT been it !

          • Mr.CustodialArts

            I just saw him in LONGMIRE!

          • Paris Hilton

            Listen, Ann. Get off my freakin’ property.

          • CONAN THE MOTHERFUCKING KING

            miss. hilton , you going to the katakysm/suffo show on the 28th. I got an early bird ticket for $15.00 at picatic.com dirt cheap

          • Kevin Nash and Friends

            They’re going up to Albany, so I might go to that one.

          • KJM

            WHAT HAPPENED TO MY FREAKIN’ CAR?!!!!

        • JWG

          Or maybe…

        • Kevin Nash and Friends

          I think of this Carl when I think of Carls. I also think of Carl from the walking dead.

    • Kevin Nash and Friends

      What is Slash’s real name? Does he even have a real name or is his real name Slash?

  • Xan

    This song definitely made my feet act as if I were pounding the double bass.

  • Mother Shabubu III

    I saw this art on Tumblr (lame, I know) this morning, unaware it was a band’s. What are the odds I run into the band’s music a few hours later?

  • frozengoatsheadupanunsarse

    It’s probably booze talking a bit, but this has moments that remind me of when I was first getting into Emperor. Major evil wizards going onnnn!!!

  • This is becoming one of my favorite features here at the Toilet.

  • Kevin Nash and Friends

    Do any of you remember a wrestler named Ahmed Johnson? He’s joining World Championship Quad Tearing and he’s been placed in the main event of tonight’s Pay Per View as Kurt Angle left the company and Ahmed was the only person we could get to join the company by 8 tonight. Also, I have a title defense tonight against Sid Vicious, Jeff Jarrett and now Ahmed Johnson.
