  • TMP: Baring Teeth, Mammoth Grinder, Fen, and More!

    As of about noon on Sunday I haven’t yet been consumed by the snow, but it’s coming down hard still, so if you don’t hear from me, this news roundup may be my last.

  • In Review: Our 2014 Albums of the Year

    With the end of the year quick approaching, most of us are busy thinking about our top picks for the 2015 year. What did we like? What’s stuck with us for nine months? What upcoming albums are we saving spots for? However, rather than looking forward, I have a different question: did your top picks from last year hold up?

  • Altars of Skronkiness: A Guest Post from Dystrophy

    Shortly after we published Edward’s excellent interview with Doug Moore from Pyrrhon, guitarist/vocalist Pete Brown from dissonant death metal doomsayers Dystrophy reached out to us about penning a guest post for our humble blog. Over the course of a few emails, we decided it would be cool to get an inside perspective of the skronk scene. As you’ll see below, Dystrophy have certainly earned their spot in the subgenre, so who better to be our guide? Before you go spelunking, press play on the band’s excellent 2015 release, Wretched Host, and prepare to get skronked.

  • Review: Sarpanitum – Blessed Be My Brothers

    No, don’t bother. Closing your eyes is futile. The thin veil of your eyelids is a useless measure against the impossible light that will envelop you. The blinding, merciless light has no source, it simply is. Bear witness to the swirls of violet, chartreuse, and gold dancing madly within the electromagnetic monolith transfixing your gaze upon itself. Bask in sublime agony as your eyes succumb to the incalescence and sublimate into the white-hot aether surrounding you. Keep this image in your mind as the rest of your body also fades into the whiteness, embracing the heat, embracing the light, and ceasing to distance its individual molecules from the infinite photons that now ravage your vaporous corpus.

    …Or just listen to Sarpanitum‘s new record Blessed Be My Brothers (Willowtip Records), which as far as I can tell is effectively the same experience. If you only like your death metal grim and bleak, look elsewhere. Blessed is of course brutal, but also colorful, psychedelic, and fiercely beautiful. Continue Reading

  • Metal Concerts: A Visual Storytelling Adventure

    Heavy metal, as much as any other music form, thrives in a live setting. I can’t count the number of times I’ve heard someone describe a band as “better live than on CD.” Metal just makes sense when you pair it with the bold, often ritualistic trappings of a live setting. I’m certain that each and every one of us can think back to a particular show that stands out to us and pick out a visual element that left a lasting impression on you. It may have been the way the lights silhouetted the band during a certain song. It may have been the masked chainsaw-wielding surgeon who seemingly threatened your well-being. It may have been the giant alien phallus that sprayed you with goo. Whatever it was, it suited the music perfectly and rooted itself in your memory.

  • Exclusive: Baring Teeth Present a Track-by-Track Deconstruction of Ghost Chorus…

    In case you hadn’t realized, I and several other writers here at the Toilet have an unhealthy, borderline denko-stalking-esque obsession with dissonant death metal. In fact, one of the biggest ToH meetups we’ve had in real life was at a show for our beloved Texas pals Baring Teeth. While watching their set with my buddies Stockhausen, Leif Bearickson, Matt Pike’s Sweaty Left Nipple, and David, I kept thinking to myself, “How do three people with such a small set-up make such an amazing sound?”

    Well, much to my delight, our friends in Baring Teeth actually reached out to us with an answer. Below is a track-by-track breakdown of their triumphant 2014 album Ghost Chorus Among Old Ruins, directly from guitar wizard Andrew Hawkins. So enjoy this Toilet-exclusive look into how baby skronks are made as you listen along to the album.

  • Celebrity Picks for Best Albums of 2014 Pt. 1 (Feat. Baring Teeth and Patrons of the Rotting Gate)

    Although the writing staff here at Toilet ov Hell has impeccable taste, we wanted to offer y’all an outsider’s perspective on the best albums of 2014. So we reached out to some well-known celebrities. Unfortunately they wouldn’t return our calls or respond to our 200 emails (´・ω・`), so we had to turn to some metal musicians for input. Thankfully, the awesome dudes from Baring Teeth and Patrons of the Rotting Gate were more than happy to comply. Pay attention here, toileteers, because this is how year-end lists should look.
