I really appreciate it when a band writes lyrics unique to their own experience rather than simply vomiting the tired themes of their target genre; especially when those themes don’t apply to them in any meaningful way. For example, there’s something about a Brazilian Viking metal band that feels inauthentic to me. NYC-based black metal outfit Mutilation Rites seem to understand this, and their music comes off as honest and sincere because of it. Maybe they don’t need to write about Satan because they’ve seen true evil deep within the dead eyes of the good people of New York. And you know what’s more depressing than frostbitten Scandinavian winters? Trying to park your fucking car in New York City.

Not that you can easily understand what’s being said, as most of the time George Paul’s vocals just sound like infinite variations of “blegh” and “blargh.” If you have a problem with that, by the way, you’re a flush-bound poser and should be killed.

But enough talk, peasants! Mutilation Rites is streaming their new album, Harbinger, in full over at the PRP. I was a huge fan of the pissed-off flurry that was Empyrean, and I’m glad to hear it taken even further on their new record. So put on your big boy trousers, wipe off that breastmilk-mustache, and get over to the PRP and stream this thing. Then lets Disqus it.

Harbinger

Keep an eye out for Harbinger, set for a release by Prosthetic Records on July 22!

  • The Devil

    IDK man. Maybe I’m being a little too narcissistic, but I still give a few brownie points to bands that write music about me, no matter how terrible they are. I’m a sucker for that shit.

  • Negrodamus

    I was also a big fan of Empyrean, I listened to that shit around the time I listened to that Woe album a bunch. Gonna check this out!

    EDIT: also, dude on the right, OG

    • That dude looks hard as fucking nails.

      • Negrodamus

        I’m sure he coined the phrase “beast mode”.

  • You were not kidding, Masterlord. This album has one of the highest riffs-to-BLEHs ratios I’ve ever seen!

    • Negrodamus

      BLEGH BLEGH BLEEEGGGGHHHHH BLAGH BLEGH BLEEEGGGGHHHHH

      This shit is tight though!

  • Paris Hilton

    Axl took a long, deep look in the mirror this morning. Deep in thought, he began to brush his teeth and stick his tongue out for inspection as is his routine. Vince, with a towel hung around his waist came up behind Axl, gave him a long, soft embrace. “What’s wrong babe?” He asked as he played with his hair. “Nothing,” replied Axl, “It’s just this new Toilet Ov Hell blog, I can’t stop thinking about it. Where did we go wrong, Vince? How come our commenters left us as our people left Egypt?” Vince was disturbed, he didn’t really know how to answer the question. His eyes shot around their NYC apartment. He started to tremble. “I’m sure you are over-reacting, sweety.” Vince replied, “that little blog is nothing compared to us, remember what happened to Number of The Blog.” Vince knew he could not stop Axl, however, it wasn’t his idea to spam the readers with “YOU WILL NOT BELIEVE THIS VERSION OF DRAGON BALL!” “Axl,” he said solemnly, “Toilet Ov Hell does not have clickbait as we do, plus they have a much better sense of community. Maybe. Just maybe, we should enable embedding again.” Axl was enraged, he struck Vince across the face. As Vince hit the floor Axl yelled “We do not need a community! This is ours Vince! Ours! Mine! Mine!” Axl went in for another swing, but Vince had sneakily grabbed Axl’s bong and broke it over his head. As Axl went down, his head hit the bed post. “You’ve gone mad with power, Axl.” Vince said as he shook his head. He got dressed, got on his motorcycle and drove off. He knew Metalsucks was no more, but felt a certain sense of pride that Toilet Ov Hell may be the last beacon of hope for metal. A place where metal nerds aren’t extreme and racist, a place that MetalSucks had failed to create.

    • 0/10 flushes – would publish.

    • W.

      Have you noticed that Vince has been posting A LOT more recently, and Axl’s stupid posts have been kept reasonably in check?

      • Negrodamus

        I only glanced at the main part of the site today to notice that there were hardly any comments on them, like, so few comments even NegroD was a little shocked.

        • Between The Buried & Smee

          hester kukk patrols the Mad Max-esque site that MS has become.

          • Negrodamus

            They’re making a new Mad Max you know.

          • Between The Buried & Smee

            And wow, Tom Hardy is starring. I was about to write it off, but Tom Hardy can act. Chances are it will be good, but forgettable, as with the Robocop remake.

          • CONAN THE MOTHERFUCKING KING

            without humungus and wez it will blow i think. Unless they can come up with two more villians that are just as impressive.

          • CONAN THE MOTHERFUCKING KING

            i go on MS once in a while to banter with HK and give him some troll tips. I myself am a 10th degree troller myself although i rarely do it . I like to call my trolls intelligent trolls. I would say my most famous one is all punk and hardcore music is shitty and should be excised from metal. It can sometimes get a discussion rolling or cause a disruptive comment pile up of blues brothers proportions.

        • Xan

          I did the same. This site has about 200% more comments than MS.

        • The Satan ov Hell

          I did the same, seems we still need to get Conan here.

          • Paris Hilton

            Conan has a certain charm to him hahah I love this site cuz it’s literally all the awesome jokes n shit with MS – the “libtard” and libertarian shit

          • CONAN THE MOTHERFUCKING KING

            A certain charm ? Is this your subtle way of asking me out ? *blushing*

          • Johnny Crunch

            I noticed that Conan has latched onto Hester Kukk, so sad.

          • CONAN THE MOTHERFUCKING KING

            Conan has had many different travelling companions over the years. When i cross over to the windswept desert land of metalsucksia it’s good to have a friend around.

      • Paris Hilton

        Axl would probably be better if he wasn’t fucking stoned all the damn time lmfao

        • W.

          I’ll agree with you on that. No offense to any tokers in the crowd, but a lot of his posts seem like something that someone deeply intoxicated thinks is absolutely hilarious, but unlike actually funny things made by stoners like all of Adult Swim, his baked ideas are just terrible.

          • I’m with you on all of that except for the Adult Swim thing because I am a grown child.

          • W.

            I meant that Adult Swim is great.

          • Paris Hilton

            Except for The Brak Show. I would rather have to read Axl’s posts for the rest of my life than watch one episode of that shit.

            *FlusH*

          • Complete thread derail:
            Did anyone watch the entire run of Moral Orel? It was seriously emotionally intense.

          • Paris Hilton

            I really should watch it sometime. I always avoided Moral Orel cuz it always gave me like a ‘hurr durr look at how bad and hypocritical religion is” kinda vibe. Chances are I’m completely missing the point though! I should check it out.

          • It kinda started that way but it became really warped as the show went on. I don’t think the final season is available for purchase because it’s so damn dark.

          • W.

            This is a side note, but I just realized that at some point, if I can find the videos on Youtube, I’d like to write a post with clips from Space Ghost: Coast to Coast that feature interviews with metalheads. I know Metallica, Rob Zombie, and Tenacious D were all on there at one point.

          • Between The Buried & Smee

            I very surprised no one has mentioned Metalocalypse, seeing as the site we are on. Also don’t forget Superjail!, Venture Bros., and Black Dynamite nerds.

          • Cock of Steele

            Fuckin Venture Bros, I still need to get on that last season.

          • Between The Buried & Smee

            I didn’t even realize there was a Season 5. I really liked the first four seasons, the writing of that show is some of the best of Adult Swim.

          • KJM

            Season 5 was great, lots of plot twists.

          • CONAN THE MOTHERFUCKING KING

            …..

          • Cock of Steele

            CONAN HAS ARRIVED!!! AND YAY FOR VENTURE TITS!!!!

          • CONAN THE MOTHERFUCKING KING

            I was raised as a jehovahs witness so the show was pretty much flashbacks of my life, so i get the emotionally intense. It was so realistic to what my life had been i would get depressed watching it. Anybody remember minoriteam. A little bit politically incorrect but it was hilarious, especially how the animation was based on the 60’s primitive spiderman, hulk, and fantastic 4 cartoons.

          • W.

            I’ll stand by the fact that Space Ghost: Coast to Coast is the funniest show ever made. Period!

          • Paris Hilton

            Space Ghost and Harvery Birdman are fucking hilarious/10

          • W.

            Did you get that thing I sent ya?

          • CONAN THE MOTHERFUCKING KING

            peter potamus, i really laughed when i heard his name. simple but hiliarious. And he’s always after women, hahhahhha

          • Cock of Steele

            Dude, if I ever get sea duty I’m just bringing my laptop and in the copious amounts of downtime I’d have, just catch up on what my childhood was so late on.

          • oh no, i love the shit out of Brak!

          • CONAN THE MOTHERFUCKING KING

            BRAK IS A FRIEND TO YOU AND I !

          • I can’t read and I suck.

          • W.

            Nah, I’ll take the blame. I think I had an extra comma in there.

          • KJM

            Squidbillies is excellent and Unknown Hinson is a Guitar God

            https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oZF06vQ7xvA

          • Steve Smithwick

            I’m a pretty big Aqua Teen/Metalocalypse supporter myself, Ignignockt.

          • KJM

            ATHF(obviously), Squidbillies, Brak Show, Metalocalypse, & Venture Bros. The rest of their shows don’t do much for me at all.

          • Sight Vnseen

            You forgot Frisky Dingo.

          • CONAN THE MOTHERFUCKING KING

            …..

          • Cock of Steele

            I was under the impression that we, here at Toilet ov Hell, were all children whoa ged too quickly.

          • Paris Hilton

            As someone who does smoke occasionally (Every few weekends), the fact of the matter is it is still a drug. It does impair people just like any other mind-altering substance. I have no patience for burnouts haha

          • Steve Smithwick

            HERBS IMPAIR NOTHING, YOU TAKE THAT BACK!

            (No really, I know, that’s why I don’t smoke before work.)

          • Johnny Crunch

            Baked ideas are half baked?

        • Rob M

          I’ve got to agree with you there as well…Dudes whole day revolves around that site. Hes got nothing to do but post articles all day. I imagine he’s probably baked 90% of the time

        • CONAN THE MOTHERFUCKING KING

          I think they just plain suck, sober or stoned.

      • Christian Molenaar

        They’re trying to lure us back, but we won’t fall into their Scylla/Charybdis trap again.

        • W.

          Solid classical reference. brohan.

          • Christian Molenaar

            Brodysseus, imo.

      • Cock of Steele

        Don’t give in to the temptations of chaos, brother.

  • Xan

    I know what I’ll be listening tonight!

  • The Satan ov Hell

    Finally here guys!

    • W.

      Awwwww yeeeeeaaaahhhh! Welcome!

    • Rob M

      I know right..Dont have a facebook page and everyone leaves you to rot

    • didn’t feel right w/o ya

      • The Satan ov Hell

        Glad to be here. I wonder if this site needs someone to keep an ear to dismal DSBM

        • If there’s something you want to cover I can help you find a way!

          • The Satan ov Hell

            I think it’d be pretty cool to do an article entirely about the cream of the [huge] crop of DSBM bands we’ve seen rise.

          • Christian Molenaar

            yesplsplsplspls

          • The Satan ov Hell

            I’ll do it! Just as soon as I know how…

          • I’m interested, especially because I know nothing about the subject. Write up a first draft and we can go from there. I can teach you all about becoming a Big Time World Famous Blogger.

          • The Satan ov Hell

            Sweet, I’ll start making a draft on google doc or something.

          • The Satan ov Hell

            Got a first draft up, anywhere specific I should put it?

          • Yep. I sent you an email.

            /how did I know your email address?
            //creeeeeeepy

          • The Satan ov Hell

    • The Satan ov Hell

      In celebration of this- here’s some ambient I made over the week end! https://soundcloud.com/satanovhell/black-flame

      • This makes me afraid.

        • The Satan ov Hell

          When I started it I was trying to write riffs for a thrash song. Then it became this.

      • Pagliacci is Kvlt

        Looks like Strapping Young Lad! will have some new bedtime music for his 7 year old son.

        • The Satan ov Hell

          I shall make Blackened Lullaby a genre, I swear by the great Toilet!

        • Cock of Steele

          I thought it was 4 hours of him farting through a speaker phone

      • Further Down the Metal Hole

        Music made in hell, posted in a comment on its very own toilet blog? Shall have to check this out later!

      • Metaphysical Anus

        Sounds great. I like me some dark ambient.

  • Bozlinger

    The dude on rights beard makes me feel like I have to battle him

    • JWG

      I have even more beard-envy than usual, as I had to cut mine down to a “respectable” length for a contract interview.

      • Bozlinger

        My has got to the point where if I cut it I feel like I’m doing something wrong

        • Deputy Dipshit

          We cannot betray our family member, that is the beard.

  • SMOHLG

    Me want. I give it 4/4 awesome beards.

  • Cock of Steele

    Do preorders come withan autographed beard?

  • Metaphysical Anus

    So is this the new site that people have been talking about? I’ll just take my stuff and move here from metalsucks.

    • Negrodamus

      FUCK THIS BIRD BITCH DRINK THIS BLEACH

      BIRDS!

      • Metaphysical Anus

        Accustomed to these satin glitches, drippin’ from my casket’s innards
        Charmer play me out the basket, last image I saw was splintered
        My reflection, I wasn’t in it, in slow motion, I give in
