The ass-end of 2014 isn’t exactly rife with notable new music, but I tracked some down for the good of the Toilet. 

We’ll start strong with Perdition Temple. They just released a 7″ EP called Sovereign of the Desolate as something of a precursor to their upcoming full-length The Tempter’s Victorious, to be released on Hell’s Headbangers in 2015. If you’re wondering whether it’s worth your time, just know that Perdition Temple features black/death veterans Gene Palubicki (ex-Angelcorpse) and Bill Taylor (Immolation, ex-Angelcorpse) on guitars, and Impurath of the legendary Black Witchery on vocals. Read as: it’s way worth your time, dude. The 7″ consists of…

“Sovereign of the Desolate,” 3 minutes and 47 seconds of scorching evil, each riff a black knife stabbing upwards at the heavens and sideways into your ear canals simultaneously.

“Weltering Blood,” a solid cover of Blasphemy’s war metal classic.

Listen to the first track from the EP and two tracks from the upcoming full length below as many times as it takes to remove all the falsity from your being, then order the EP here or preorder the full length here/here. Or do both. But not neither.



 

The newest track featured by the ever-reliable Iron Bonehead Records is that of one Hic Iacet, a band I’ve never heard of and probably can’t pronounce. “Hakuna Matata” or “Mahakala” or whatever is from The Cosmic Trance into the Void, expected for release sometime in February.

The intro’s ritual chant sets the stage for a slow, brooding build, but the first riff kicks the door to splinters, aggressively inserts them into the eyes of the audience, and burns down the whole damned auditorium instead. Check it out and watch for more of their death-tinged black metal later in the year.

 

Who bought Exhumed’s blood-splattering, sternum-shattering death metal debut Gore Metal? Good. Now who wants to buy it again 17 years later? The band is pulling the cadaver of their 1998 full-length from the refrigeration unit to make a few tweaks. Gore Metal: A Necrospective 1998-2015 is set for release via Relapse Records on February 10th, and you can listen to the new version of “Open the Abscess” right here.

The new-old song seems to be polarizing. Some people are all like, “fuck yeah Exhumed rules beers on me when you come to Minnesota please notice me” and other people are all like, “the original was better where are the chainsaw sound effects wtf?” The top comment on YouTube is evidence that the banner of FLUSH has seen many lands.

If you like what you heard, you can preorder the album here.

 

Two last minute additions because I can’t sleep and I really dig you guys:

Listen to a crusty new jam by Denver metallic hardcore savages Call of the Void. “R.I.S.” is from their upcoming LP Ageless, set for release through Relapse Records in February. Listen below, then go here to preorder and listen to another song (“Cold Hands”).

 

Lastly, check out this brand new song from I, Voidhanger’s ambient black metal posterboy Midnight Odyssey. “Hunter of the Celestial Sea” will appear on their upcoming album Shards of the Silver Fade, to be released sometime this Spring. I’m excited about this one.

      Does this mean that your pee dribbles when you urinate?

        It also burns.

        • Howard Dean

          STI or UTI?

            I urinate acid.

          • Howard Dean

            What’s the pH?

          • VVorld Peace

            Just 1

          • Howard Dean

            Lemon juice with a splash or two of hydrochloric.

          • WHOOPS

            Haven’t measured yet.

          • Lacertilian

            you going to put it onto blotter and sell to @blackbeard_s_ghost:disqus ?

          • WHOOPS

            Shit, that’s a good idea. KJM would probably be interested as well.

      • more beer

        All over his shoes!

        • WHOOPS

          I don’t wear shoes when I pee.

          • more beer

            Then all over your feet. Same thing but worse.

          • WHOOPS

            I always take off my legs before I pee.

          • more beer

            So you sit when you pee? Since you would be to short without legs.

          • WHOOPS

            I just lay on my stomach in the woods when I need to pee.

          • more beer

            Very sanitary.

          • at least he doesn’t lay on his back. amirite?

            GL

          • more beer

  • Tyree

    Holy shit, new Perdition Temple is vicious as FUUUUUCK! Impurath’s vocals are always violent. This is good shit Masterlord.

    I prefer the old Gore Metal album from Exhumed honestly. I like that raw sloppy aggression. Plus the original artwork/photo was amazing.

  • TrickleDownOvTacoKvltRiff

    Masterlord giveth, I willingly taketh…

    • CyberneticOrganism

      I-eth listeneth enjoyinglyeth

  • Tyree

    Hic Iacet is on Iron Bonehead Records so obviously it will be good.

    • CyberneticOrganism

      Update: It continues to be good.

  • Is it beer-thirty yet??!!!

    GL

  • WHOOPS

    Oooh, Midnight Odyssey sounds gooooood.

  • Nordling Rites Ov Leõnhart

    I like the sound of this “Stomach Fish”. Very much indeed.

    • Nordling Rites Ov Leõnhart

      Midnight Odyssey too, is great.

  • Hubert, Goat ov Doom and Void

    That Midnight Oddyssey sounds great, especially like the cheesy synths at 4:30.

  • VVorld Peace

    I’m pretty sure that youtube comment is our own Paris Hilton.

    • Nordling Rites Ov Leõnhart

      I actually thought 365d or frozengoatshead…
      because either of them (I cannot recall which)
      made a comment almost exactly the same iver at the FB group.

      • VVorld Peace

        Yah, I remembered seeing the wording before, but couldn’t remember who it was.

        • Miguel Serra

          This community make me bush, or blush.. How’s the word to express the red in the cheeks? Jajajaja

          • VVorld Peace

            Blush, my friend.

          • Miguel Serra

            Yeah, I knew it, was joking :3

      • Miguel Serra

        YOUR NICKNAME, MR. BEAAAR!! 😀

        • Nordling Rites Ov Leõnhart

          It’s a tribute to some guy who used tk hang around these parts 😉

    So it was @disqus_4E0xQtrX2p:disqus?

  • KJM

    Starting today I will, once again, attempt to quit diet soda.

    • Interesting because I’m, once again, attempting to start diet soda.

      • KJM

        If you’re trying to step down from regular soda, that’s just fine. Good luck

      • Dat’s gross.

        • Truly…

          • VVorld Peace

            I made the transition shortly after getting married.

          • Gotta drink diet, man. Regular will kill you.

            Diet Pepsi > Diet Coke. Regular Coke > Regular Pepsi.

            Diet Dr. Pepper > Diet Pepsi.

            Remember this relationship and you will conquer.

            GL

          • VVorld Peace

            Where does Coke Zero or DP10 fit in there?

          • Tyree

            More bears.

          • Bears: the gifts the keep on gif-ing!

            GL

          • VVorld Peace
          • Diet Dr. Pepper > Coke Zero, while Coke Zero > Diet Coke. DP10 = Diet Dr Pepper. DP10 has the hint of being a bad ass – with only 10 cals. Word

            GL

          • Coke Zero >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
            it’s my favorite non-beer!

          • Edward #negrod4eva

            Diet Coke >>>> Diet Pepsi

            Coke > Pepsi, usually

          • VVorld Peace

            I agree. Pepsi is nasty.

          • Edward #negrod4eva

            Occasionally I will be in the mood for one, and of course some restaurants only serve Pepsi products.

    • and start regular soda yes?

      • KJM

        Water only.

        • I’ll join you and try to kick my addiction to regular soda.

          • KJM

            I quit tobacco on my first try without a single relapse. Even the thought of tobacco makes me want to puke. However, I’ve tried and failed several times to quit diet soda.

          • I’ve quit soda before but it’s never lasted more than a week or two

          • They say if you stop for like a month then it never tastes good again. THEY ARE FUCKING WRONG. WRONG WRONG WRONG WRONG!

          • KJM

            100% WRONG.

          • VVorld Peace

            1000% wrong. Mountain Dew and beer tasted just as good a month later. Maybe even better.

          • KJM

            After not drinking it for a year, MD tasted like nectar of The Gods.

          • WHOOPS

            Goddammit guys, you’re hirting me! I haven’t tasted it for two years.

          • VVorld Peace

            It’s so good. I had to switch to diet, though. And all I drink is one of those miniature cans of diet. I try to limit myself to one a day.

          • WHOOPS

            I should stop drinking Dr. Pepper as well.

          • VVorld Peace

            Are you a Texan? That’s all people drink here.

          • WHOOPS

            Not quite. Coffee is the drink I consume most in a day.

          • Dr. Pepper is so glorious.

          • i can diet the shvt out of dr. pepper

          • KJM

            Have you ever tried Moxie? Do they even have it over there?

          • WHOOPS

            Never heard of it nor seen it in stores. We only have two flavours of mountain dew here as well.

          • KJM

            It’s like Dr Pepper x 1000.

            http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moxie

          • WHOOPS

            Then it’s best if it stays away from me.

          • KJM

            If you like Dr Pepper, more than likely you’ll love Moxie. So, yes.

          • Tyree

            You know, if you stab a man in the dead of winter, steam will rise up from the wounds. Indians believed it was his soul escaping from his body.

          • So basically in the summer indians don’t have a soul.

          • Howard Dean

            Yeah I know what you’d like to do. You’d like to find the guy who did it, rip his still beating heart out of his chest and hold it in front of his face so he can see how black it is before he dies.

          • Tyree

            Actually, I was thinking of filing a grievance with the union.

          • Howard Dean

            [shrugs] The world’s a twisted place.

          • Tyree

            ZANG!

          • Lacertilian

            Why do they come to me to die?
            Why do they come to me to die?

          • they’re correct for me doe!

          • KJM

            I went over a year with only water and the occasional Gatorade. Then, like a dumbass I said “Oh, just one won’t hurt”. Famous last words.

          • Edward #negrod4eva

            I got a snus in now.

          • WHOOPS

            You should probably visit Sweden one day.

          • Edward #negrod4eva

            I’d like to. I’d also really like to visit Tokyo, Japan.

          • KJM

            Will you try to go off those eventually?

          • Edward #negrod4eva

            Yes, eventually I should.

        • good luck with that, quitting mountain dew is like the hardest thing ever.

          • WHOOPS

            He doesn’t want to dew it anymore.

          • ooooh soo funny I forgot to laugh!

          • WHOOPS

            My dad used to say that. Hi dad!

          • Stop wasting time and clean your fucking room son.

          • CyberneticOrganism

            I enjoy a Code Red once every other week or so, and it is glorious.

    • CyberneticOrganism

      Eschew soda. Consume beer.

      • KJM

        Nah, water only. I’m not an alcohol person really.

        • WHOOPS

          A question about milk. How long does milk stay good over there? Here you have to drink it in a week or it’ll go bad.

          • VVorld Peace

            Real milk is pretty similar. My wife is lactose intolerant, so we drink a lot of almond milk. It lasts longer.

          • KJM

            Good stuff.

          • VVorld Peace

            I actually like the way it tastes, honestly.

          • KJM

            Me too.

          • mmm, love me some soy milk!

          • Lacertilian

            almond juice!
            No mammary, not milk.
            I have an irrational quest to stamp out false milks.
            Side Note: My wife started buying lactose-free milk and now I have slightly better sinus. Maybe related?

          • VVorld Peace

            Could be. I think a lot of people have at least some degree of dairy intolerance.

          • KJM

            Same here.

          • WHOOPS

            Then the stories I’ve heard are bullshit.

          • KJM

            There is some milk that will stay good indefinitely but it tastes really weird.

          • WHOOPS

            I’ve heard that all milk is like that.

          • Howard Dean

            Varies. Depends on your proximity to the source, how it is packaged, its fat content, how it was processed, and how it is stored.

        • CyberneticOrganism

          No coffee or tea either? Gotta have something that gives you a little kick when its needed.

          • VVorld Peace

            Coffee isn’t bad for you at all, either.

          • CyberneticOrganism

            My neural net processor (a learning computer) would shut down without caffeine.

          • VVorld Peace

            I think my heart would stop pumping.

            Actually a few years ago when my grandma passed, my grandpa was so bummed that he lost his appetite. All he consumed for a few days was coffee and cigarettes. He’s doing just fine now.

          • CyberneticOrganism

            Sorry to hear that, man. I had a similar experience (though not with losing a family member) where I just didn’t eat anything for like 2 days. Just didn’t have the urge to. On the third day I think I had 12 pounds of Chinese food at once.

          • VVorld Peace

            Were you still hungry afterwards?

          • CyberneticOrganism

            Yes… for sushi.

          • KJM

            I’m not really a hot beverage drinker, and I hate coffee.

          • WHOOPS

            I’m 80% coffee. Fite me m8!

          • Edward #negrod4eva

            I like throwing in a fresh snus and then having a very hot cup of coffee – or tea. Often while listening to heavy metal. That’s my jam.

          • Edward #negrod4eva

            Coffee and tea are both good.

    • why? it’s healthy

      • KJM

        Trust me, it ain’t.

      • Miguel Serra

        It must be worse with all those nu merol approved aspartame

        • KJM

          That’s one of the reasons I stopped.

          • Miguel Serra

            the aspartame itself or because it’s backed by nu merol?

          • KJM

            Aspartame mostly, but I’m more than happy to deny a bad corporation my money.

          • Lacertilian

            Cannot handle the taste of Aspartame, even when it’s mixed with Acesulfame K.
            Lately, I have been going half a Tahitian lime, 95% soda water, 5% lemonade and some aromatic bitters (w/ or w/out Vodka).
            Fuck artificial sweetners, get your bitter on.

          • KJM

            Sounds good. I’ll try for mostly water with some flavored(natural) tonic water here and there as well as the occasional orange and cranberry juice.

          • Lacertilian

            Mmmmm….juice might be our saviour in times of need.
            I used to hate carbonated waters with a passion but now I have come full circle once I discovered their utility as a mixer.

          • Max

            Mineral or soda water mixed with fruit juice is basically a “savoury soft-drink”, if you will.

            Tonic water, though, I suspect contains as much sugar as lemonade.

          • Lacertilian

            Yeah man, I do another now with some apple-raspberry juice/cordial, lemonade & soda water (+ or – vodka). It’s worth a go.
            Always been suspicious of anything with Tonic written on it.
            I hate that Indian tonic water stuff they schweppes sell.

      • VVorld Peace

        That’s what I look like when I shave my beard

      • WHOOPS

        Memories of that horrible movie flooded back.

          I will continue to avoid it like the plague, then.

    • Oh man I can get down with some Souls

      • BEVRDBEVRD

        We usually do 45+ SM for DkS2, but we have characters in other ranges if anyone wants to play. We’re currently playing DkS1, or if there are any takers for Aquapazza, MW3, or Niddhogg

        • I actually just got back into WoW, as well as a game called Elite: Dangerous that is AMAZING

          • BLVKKBEVRDED DRVGON

            Yeahhhhh, I can’t go back to WoW, no matter how good the new expansion is. I’ve done my time with that game. Really we’re just biding time until the new DkS2 and Bloodborne come out.

  • WHOOPS

    Fucking fireworks everywhere!

    • BEVRDBEVRD

      Isn’t new years like a different date there? Don’t they have a different calendar in imagination land

            Just letting you know from +11UTC that 2015 stinks.

            Happy new cultural gravitational orbital period enumeration of an iron cored oblate spheroid rock around a cosmic thermonuclear reactor. (stole this from someone)

          • WHOOPS

            It’s been 2015 here for an hour now. I’m hoping that our shitty right-wing politicians die.

          • Lacertilian

            Hope won’t get you there…need to take further action.
            What have they done in your part of the world?
            Currently, they are removing disability payments in favour of subsidising more mining here.
            It’s near midday here now.

          • WHOOPS

            There’s a huge argument going on about gay marriage. Aparently it finally will become legal, which is good,

          • Lacertilian

            Here they are being hailed as compassionate heroes because some of them have merely mentioned decriminalising cannabis for terminally ill people who already receive opiates.
            Fuck conservatives.

          • Fuck politicians, pundits and politicos, period!

            What AREN’T they doing here that sucks?

          • …Ellipsis…

            I’m already over 2015. It’s gonna be a long fucking year…

          • Lacertilian

            It’ll be shortened by about 140 days if you move to Venus.
            Although the days will be much longer, longer than the entire year.

          • …Ellipsis…

            Distant and inhospitable. Sounds like my kind of place…

          • Lacertilian

            I’ve been described as distant & inhospitable by most people I know well.

          • Still beats Flint, Detroit or Cleveland!

          • Ellipsis ov Flush

            Yeah, I still have standards.

          • Well, that whole sulfuric acid atmosphere/rain thing might pose a problem……….
