New Music Roundup: Tsjuder, Kauan, Gorod And More!

Another week, another batch of new music. Don’t you ever get tired? No? Well allright then, come on in.

This past week has been good on the black and death metal front for the Toilet. Edward returned to review Pissgrave’s debut full-length and Mgła debuted the first track from their upcoming third full-length Exercise in Futility.  And as if that hadn’t been enough we also learnt what Ævangelist’s third full-length might have sounded in the form of Fæthm ExcursusTyree arrived to bring Pure Fucking Armageddon upon us once more. And now, hopefully not too late, we bring you news of Tsjuder’s fifth full-length. It’s a long way they went from a practically-faceless-second-wave-clone-boredom of Div Gammelt Stasj to the exact same sound but so much more refined that it worked in Desert Northern Hell. And then they were gone. Never to return. Except that they did return in 2010 and unleashed Legion Helvete for all their fans to enjoy. Now the time to continue this conquest is finally arriving in the form of Antiliv. Expect nothing new, only the same sandblasting black metal Tsjuder have always reveled in.

See here if the link below shows you nothing, or here.

The cover art has been designed by Vincent Fouquet (of Above Chaos) and the album is up for pre-orders now. It will release on the morn of the 18th dawn of September.


Kauan is a band trying to elude categorization. Starting with very atmospheric and folk-influenced doom, they slowly moved towards a more post-rock influenced sound culminating on Pirut. The 20th day of October has been chosen to unveil their seventh album, Sorni Nai. Whether the re-recordings of their older material found on Muistumia have affected their style remains to be seen, but they have promised reference and expand upon the territory they have explored previously. The 52-minute song, yes – one song, consisting of 7 tracked movements – will feature everything from lush string orchestrations to operatic doom metal. Pre-orders will be up on August 5th. The infamous Djatlov Pass incident serves as the concept to the chapters, titled in Mansi but sung in Finnish.

You can marvel at Sonia Melnik’s cover art here and stream the first chapter of Sorni Nai below. It’s clearly the first chapter as the first five minutes have no guitars, and as atmospheric as the song is, it leaves no doubt it’s only an intro to the 52-minute opus. Despite its seven minute length, it’s over before it even properly began. Nevertheless, I like it.

Keep updated on Blood Music’s FB page.

You can also listen to Kuu…here, Pirut here and Aava Tuulen Maa here.

Lumikuuro and Tietäjän Laulu are available for your listening pleasure as well, as is Muistumia

ADDITIONALLY

  • Destroyer 666 has woken from its slumber. Six years have passed since Defiance was released, so it’s about time. The band has now entered studio, but no other news has yet reached my ears. The album will serve as studio debut for drummer Perra (In Aeternum, Nominon) and guitarist Ro (Grave Miasma, Cruciamentum) and bassist Felipe. This is not the first time D.666 took its time releasing an album; between Defiance and its closest predecessor the Terror Abraxas EP, six years elapsed, and the band has only released four full-lengths (in addition to 3 EPs) in their 21-year career.
  • The US black metal band Ritual Killer streams a new song from their upcoming full-length Exterminance, to be released on September 18th.
  • Gorod premiered a new song at Deezer. A questionable decision according to some as the song is unavailable through the service in countries such as USA, but I say it doesn’t matter. It is known that I am not a fan of most tech-death bands and that Gorod doesn’t count among the few I enjoy, but they have their moments. Celestial Nature – the new song – is not one of them. Sure, the skill is there but there’s hardly anything interesting or captivating going on. And the vocals, perhaps due to production differences, are worse then ever before; bordering on bad. Which makes the playthrough video below the best way to listen to it. Anyway, A Maze of Recycled Creeds comes out on Oct 18th.

    WOW WAY TO STEAL MY GOROD NEWS BIT

    • Bozamole Jim
      • Spear

        I’m mesmerized by the spit flying from his mouth.

      • Stockhausen

        Whoa. What is that from.

        • Bronson maybe

          • tertius_decimus

            Badass movie and one of the best roles by Tom Hardy. By the way, original book by Charles Bronson “Solitary fitness” is a worthy read. It’s incredible how strong man can be consuming just fucking porridge.

          • Herr Schmitty

            I knew I’d seen that before, pretty interesting.

        • Bozamole Jim

          Bronson. Really good movie, actually. Lots of Tom Hardy’s dong though. Be warned. Nobody told me before I watched it… didn’t expect that much dong.

    • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

      I told you you’d get the same news twice for ignoring me.

      • Spear

        WOW

        • Dubzlinger, Malandro Slayer

          Don’t take that from him. Bop his nose.

        • Sir Tapir The Based :]

    • RJA

      Is that a mutiilation vinyl hiding behind there?

      • Tyree

        Why, yes it is. Sarcofago I.N.R.I. to the left as well.

        • RJA

          that mutiilation cover is one of the most classic/corniest covers of all time!

        • sweetooth0

          I got the “blue” Sarcofago variant.

          • Tyree

            Most excellent!

      • sweetooth0

        sheeeee-iiiit, was just gonna say the same thing. Vampires of Black Imperial Blood!!!!!!!

  • DCLXVI

  • I know I have heard of Gorod…. but does anyone has a recommendation for further listening?

  • Mother Shabubu 4

    A Maze of Recycled Creeds? Oh you mean the late 90’s, early 00’s rock radio?

    HIIIYYOOO

  • Sir Tapir The Based :]

    New Kauan makes me feel good, man.

  • Tyree

    That new Cruciamentum is going to destroy.

    • Stockhausen

      Dude, I was jamming that track hard yesterday. It started off pretty bland, but I was sold about a minute in.

      • STOCKY!

        • Stockhausen

          HAPPY BIRTHDAYYYLMAO LINK!!

          • It was a happy barfday the entire morning with all those barfs 🙁

            I’m hoping the afternoon is more relax.

            Thanks Stocky, I missed you around here.

          • Stockhausen

            I’m killing a malandro as we speak to give your day good vibes. Between being on tour and coming straight home to 9 AM-9 PM marching band rehearsals (and the 10:00 PM soccer game I have tonight), I’ve had sadly little toilet time.

          • You can end it twisting his neck. Those fuckers eat so bad and use so much cocaine that they’re kinda elastic.

            I am stalking you, I know where you are 😀 Keep on going and slay those posers in the road.

          • Atomic Wedgie Massacre

            And I’ll choke a couple for you as well!

          • Kevin Nash & Friends

            Andre, would you stop?

          • OMG! We don’t show openly how to choke malandros, KJU!

            It’s a complex and delicate process in which you inflict terror in their kind.

          • Herr Schmitty
          • Sir Tapir The Based :]

            Can I wipe my butt with it?

          • Herr Schmitty

            Yeah. It has some pre-existing turd smears on it anyway, you won’t be making it worse.

          • Sir Tapir The Based :]

            You underestimate my glorious poo, friendo!

          • Atomic Wedgie Massacre

            Everyone here will choke one for you. Except Joe, since his hands definitely can’t fit around anyone’s throat, or anything bigger than a toothpick.

          • Kevin Nash & Friends

            Gorilla Monsoon does not approve.

          • Sir Tapir The Based :]

            I won’t either. I’m a pacifist.

          • Atomic Wedgie Massacre

            I won’t either. I need a pacifier.

            FTFY

          • Sir Tapir The Based :]

            I would give this comment a solid 1/10 would not read again.

          • more beer

            Make up your mind. Last week you were talking about stabbing people. You can`t have it both ways.

          • Sir Tapir The Based :]

            The true Tapir is a non violent Tapir.

          • more beer

            I will remember that the next time you want to go on a stabbing spree!

          • Sir Tapir The Based :]

            An act of violence may come to my mind, but I will not commit it.

          • Dubzlinger, Malandro Slayer

            Haven’t you heard? This joke is out.

          • Atomic Wedgie Massacre

            As soon as weeb jokes are out, which will be never. 😉

          • Tyree

            Jesus fucking christ.

          • Dubzlinger, Malandro Slayer

            Haha, I think Tyree had the best possible response to this.

          • Atomic Wedgie Massacre
          • CT-12

            Happy birthday duder!

    • yissssssssss, bandcamp recommended it cause i like Amestigon. bandcamp is smrt.

  • I’m very interested in new Kauan. I jam Pirut and Aavan Tuule Maa. Great blend of atmosphere and doom. It gets pretty obscure or pretty light in a glimpse.

    I’m hoping this rules too. Need to check their other records.

    • CT-12

      Dude, “Lumikuuro” is one of my favorites, highly recommended. “Tietejan Laulu” is also very good. I still need to check out some of their other stuff. Nothing really struck a chord with me on “Pirut”, but I don’t think I was patient enough with that album.

  • Tyree

    Tsjuder meets Motörhead.

  • Phoenix of the House Tendies

    I AM THE WARGOD!!!

    • tertius_decimus

      M Shadows!

  • Cunt Cunt

    That Tsjuder track rips, shamefully I’m a newb to the band. Any recommendations where I should start with em. Cheers

    • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod
      • Tyree

        I back this 666%

      • Cunt Cunt

        Thank you Sir.

      • what tyree and cvnt cvnt said, this rules

    • Welcome to the Toilet!

      GL

    • Atomic Wedgie Massacre

      Welcome to The Toilet!

      • Sir Tapir The Based :]

        Ladies ladies, he’s been here before.

    • CT-12

      “Desert Northern Hell” is the only album I have of theirs, but it’s really good.

    • Rob M

      “Desert Northern Hell” is their best, but “Demonic Possession” and “Legion Helvete” are both solid

      ..for the record, while Tsjuder are riff machines, they can be a very blast heavy black metal band..just so you know what youre getting into

      • Cunt Cunt

        cool. I listened to Desert Northern Hell earlier and really dug it so I’ll be checking out the rest of their stuff. I’ll start with the 2 you mentioned.
        Dunno how I avoided listening to em for this long.

  • IronLawnmower

    Hoping to see Destroyer 666 on halloween night.Pretty excited.

  • Atomic Wedgie Massacre

    And Geoff Tate has a new song and video out. It’s actually pretty good. He still looks like the bastard lovespawn of Sloth from The Goonies and the villain from Flash Gordon though.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vX7lRZmt8Hw

    • Kevin Nash & Friends

      It sounds like Mindcrime if Mindcrime was recorded in 2015 but with Tater Tot’s voice being shot. It has good instrumental work though. It reminds me of a supergroup because Simon Wright of ACDC, John Moyer of Disturbed, Brian Tichy of Whitesnake and Billy Idol and of course Geoff Tater Tot are all in one group. The concept sounds boring though because instead of being about revolution it’s about online banking and stock trading.

      • Atomic Wedgie Massacre

        Wouldn’t say his vocals are completely shot, but he definitely can’t pull off the vocal acrobatics of old.

        • Kevin Nash & Friends

          I consider his vocals shot compared to what he could do. It still wasn’t as bad as I expected though.

    • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

      I thought this was really bland. Without Tate I might give it another chance (his name drags the band down), but on the other hand: his shitfuck of a performance wqas the most interesting thing there.

    • ME GORAK B.C.™

      IT SURPRISE GORAK HOW IT NOT SUCK BIG ONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      • I think you have Trivium and the Vest master switched, buddy.

        GL

        • ME GORAK B.C.™

          BUT GORAK THINK SAME ABOUT BOTH!!!!!!! ALMOST GOOD!!!!!

    • flagged for clogging the terlet

    • CT-12

      I wish I could like this. Make no mistake, I fucking love Queensryche’s old shit, but this doesn’t even hold a candle to it. This song sounds like they just took the verse riffs from “Suite Sister Mary” and “The Mission” and shit out a bland version of it.

      • Atomic Wedgie Massacre

        Thankfully it’s not Frequency Unknown Part 2!

        • CT-12

          Yeah, I guess that’s something. I will say I did I think “Cold” was an alright track from that album, but that’s the only song I can remember making some sort of lasting impression on me.

          • A Dark & Curious Sausagefart

            The whole thing sounded like one really really bad attempt at mainstream alternative radio.

  • Atomic Wedgie Massacre

    Oh, and Maiden released this today.

  • Rob M

    Damn…been waiting on that new Destroyer 666 album forever..thats fucking killer news.

    …and the 4:15 mark of that new Tsjuder song…goddamn..that riff!
