This Toilet Tuesday (10/17/17)


Oh shit, it’s Toilet Tuesday again. I’ll spare you a grisly intro this week because I’m tired as hell and there’s a lot of music coming out, so let’s cut to the chase. Hans and I have grabbed a couple sweet jams for you to check out, but be sure to skim over that absurdly long list for more.

Cryostasium – Starbound (Grimm Distribution) [Black Metal]
Listen to “Melancholera”

Pre-microtonal Jute Gyte played by a slightly (slightly!) saner man. Less keen on mathematical compositions and vocals, much more fond of synths. The riffs mostly have the same disconcerting, vertigo-inducing quality, and the synths add a thick layer of what-exactly-is-going-on. Repetition gives everything a transfixing, sometimes droning quality without becoming boring – it’s too unsettling for that. 17/10/16 (Hans)

Night Viper – Exterminator (Listenable Records) [Heavy Metal]
Listen to “No Escape”

Alright, I may have clicked this because the name made me think of Night Demon, but I think fans of them will not be unhappy about this. The preview track boasts some to-the-point, fun metal with an old-school vibe. Just check out that riff hitting shortly after the one-minute mark. High energy throughout and a catchy chorus on top of it all. Also FFO Crucial Taunt. 17/10/20 (Hans)

Belltower – Hereafter (Independent) [Black Metal]
Listen to “Echoes Sung by Winter Winds”

Grimy black metal with sick shreds and big riffs? Yes, please. At the time of this writing, “Echoes Sung by Winter Winds” was the only song available for listening, but it was more than enough to get me excited. It kicks things off with a big, sinister riff that evokes a classic horror vibe, shortly joined by a fiery melodic guitar solo. The song progresses without too many surprises, but it’s the quality of the riffs and the pacing that really set it apart. All around solid black metal. 10/17/17 (Spear)

    Does anyone know of good albums to listen too when you are so depressed all you wanna do is drink yourself into a coma? A truck ran over and killed my dog this morning.

    • Dubby Fresh

      I’m so sorry to hear that 🙁 I find myself listening to Today Is the Day’s Temple of the Morning Star when I’m real down.

      RIP, sweet dog.

      • God

        Just finished it. Damn what a journey. It was so primal

    • aw man deity, i’m so sorry. when i’m depressed, i usually try to perk myself up by listening to really happy music; but not everybody works that way.
      here’s some good goth rock:

    • I’m so sorry to hear about this 🙁

      Here’s a few that really have done me right in the last few years:

      Patrick Watson – Love Songs for Robots
      Mount Eerie – A Crow Looked at Me
      Giant Squid – Metridium Fields

    • Fuck man, I’m sorry. I generally end up listening to Haydn, Brahms, and the like. More important is just to listen to something, anything, to keep yourself engaged. When the dark times hit I usually don’t want to listen to anything at all, but forcing myself to ends up helping- or at least not hurting.

    • ME GORAK™✓ᶜᵃᵛᵉᵐᵃⁿ


    • GrumpDumpus

      I would start with ulcerate shrines of paralysis and then work my way towards nasum inhale exhale and then cathedral forest of equilibrium sorry about your nice doggy pets are family humans are garbage

    • Hans

      Shit man, that sucks.
      Try Broken Souls by Dead Swords.

    • KJM, Blood Farmer

      I am SO SORRY. Losing a pet sucks.

    • Mosh Hoff

      Dude… that is horrible, I can’t even imagine. If you’re like me and like to listen to dark/depressing things when you’re down…

      • God

        I tend to prefer stuff like that when I’m down. Listening to this next.

    • GrumpDumpus
      • KJM, Blood Farmer

        GODDAMMIT : (

    • Doc Torluv

      Sorry about your dog – I never wish that upon anyone… My catharsis: Deep Peace by Devin Townsend.

    • CT-12
    • Spear

      So sorry to hear, man. With that particular feeling of sadness, that loss, I usually look to something chill and bluesy. It helps calm me down and, I dunno, dilutes the feeling? Hard to describe, but it’s almost a meditative kind of thing.

  • oooh shit new midnight

    • AND four days ago we were treated to new The Midnight!

    • Ted Nü-Djent ™

      I don’t know. That’s 2 albums this year. I love them but give me a chance to miss them first. Plus over half the album is rehearsal takes of previously released material.

  • Brutalist_Receptacle
  • drug_genosh

    and here I thought Chthe’ilist was unpronounceable

  • Hans

    Looking forward to Yellow Eyes. Also gonna have to peep that mystery genre.

  • Dubby Fresh

    Cryostasium is rad, but I don’t hear a lot of Jute Gyte. Maybe Chaotorynth would be a closer approximation.

    • Brutalist_Receptacle


      • Dubby Fresh

        Agreed, Giusepptacle.

    • JG was not the first thing that sprung to mind but I do catch a whiff of Isolation era JG. The woozy riff-style and programmed drumzzz…yes, just a whiff.

  • RJA

    New Aegrus, Midnight, Yellow Eyes – some pretty good stuff here.
    Listened to the Bell Witch already this morning – pretty good but also a bit of chore at 84 minutes!
    Hans, you’ve been doing some great work on TTT – thanks man.

  • Jay Majesty

    That Aegrus album is fierce

  • CT-12

    New Ice Age so far is great, only listened to the A side. Didn’t like the rerecording of Instant Justice, but everything up to that point kicked ass.
