This Toilet Tuesday (11/22/16)


Welcome to This Toilet Tuesday! We’ve got new jams aplenty this week, a couple of which may or may not be brought to us by our fellow Toilet-goers. Link and I have picked out a few of the choicer selections for your listening pleasure, so be sure to check those out. Have at it!


Witchery – In His Infernal Majesty’s Service (Century Media Records) [Black Thrash]
Listen to “Oath Breaker,” “Nosferatu”

Witchery is a band that delivers a very refined slice of thrash metal tinted with burbling dark ink. The Swedish ones are now back with more vengeance, served in a rounded silver plate, with a nearly intact line-up. Newcomer drumming manic, Christofer Barkensjö ,injected new blood into the mix with a frenzied performance, and Angus Norder, the new vocalist, add a blackened throat to summon the dark forces to raid the Earth. The Corpse and Jensen guitar co-op mode is intact, with the razorblade riffing attack, aided by the Gentle Giant Sharlee D’Angelo with his signature stomping bass attack. All the positions are set into the deadline, Witchery is back and these two songs prove that their are still strong in their game! 11/25/16 (Link)


Nightmare – Dead Sun (AFM Records) [Power Metal]
Listen to “Serpentine”

Of all the AFM Records bands, Nightmare probably have the meatier and heavy guitar tone of all. The precise and powerful performance of the new vocalist Maggy Luyten tag very well with the thrash inspired riffing style, going to harsh lows and soaring highs in an instant. Every instrument crush through glass and bones and I feel that the band is on a inspiring time, pushing their power metal style to grandiose altitudes. AFM Records is killing it this year with so many cool releases for the power metalheads! 11/25/16 (Link)


Fromhell – March on Gravitation (Naturmacht Productions) [Progressive Black Metal]
Listen to “Hibernation Sun,” “Summoning Stars”

I suppose it might be a bit of stretch calling Fromhell “progressive” black metal, given how deeply their sound is rooted in the trappings of the second wave, but I feel like their use of post-black tools in a traditional black metal setting earns them the descriptor. They make extensive use of Hammond organ, soothing clean vocals, and the effects-laden clean guitar you’d expect from an outfit like Vukari, but it’s all set in the midst of powerful triumphant riffing in the vein of Havukruunu. It’s a cool sound that works surprisingly well, and I’m very much looking forward to the rest of the album. 11/26/16 (Spear)

Did you dig this? Take a second to support Toilet ov Hell on Patreon!
  • I’m still spinning that new Antaeus album from last Tuesday. Fuck is that album mean!

  • Lol, Abigail doesn’t fuck around. Two new splits in a month after their new album. Fuck yes! That band rules.

    • They were righteous at MDF 2013

      • I bet! Yasuyuki Suzuki brings it live.

        • What’d you think about Gevurah? I posted a link at the top, it reminds me of mid era deathspell omega before the surrendered to the zany dissonance

  • CyberneticOrganism

    That burbling Witchery is good shit #goodshit

  • Maik Beninton™

    This Fromhell stuff is neat.
    They didn’t pick a better name though.

    • Joaquin Stick

      This IS good! That name is hella generic though.

      • CyberneticOrganism


  • Señor Jefe El Rosa

    Will check Witchery, Nightmare and Feanor. Thanks duders.

  • Dumpster Lung ᴰᵃᵐᵃᵍᵉ_ᴵⁿᶜ⁸⁹
  • Damn, new Alcoholic Rites too. Nice! Their album from this year killed.

  • Elegant Gazing Globe

    Krepitus is good so far

  • AeonsOvChaos

    Abigail/Lustrum and Black Witchery and I don’t need something else this week!

  • Ayyy, mighty Spear! This FromHell is very very good!

  • Joaquin Stick

    That Cokegoat is some pretty decent crunchy doom!

  • Elegant Gazing Globe

    Man the two “devour” track titles from Fetid Zombie really made me cringe, and expect some skinned knuckle slam, but glad I clicked this, totally satisfied.

  • Anyone check out Gevurah? Sounds like a hyper focused version of Deathspell Omega’s Si Monvmentvm Reqvires, Circvmspice without all the awkward growing pains and mishaps across that album. The final track is what Carnal Malefactor should have sounded like

    • Didn’t like this album, but their first EP Necheshirion was incredible IMO.

      • Can’t win em all!

        • You are correct that that album has some Deathspell Omega vibes. I’m just not a fan of Deathspell Omega.

          • To be fair, Deathspell Omega has been pretty diverse in their style. You can not like their early/mid/later stuff and possibly like another era, you know?

          • Never really gave their early shit a chance. The albums I’ve heard though are not for me.

          • Howard Dean

            You’d really enjoy Inquisitiors of Satan, Manifestations 2002, the splits with Moonblood/Clandestine Blaze/Mutiilation, and would maybe enjoy Si Monumentum Requires (and possibly Kenose).


          • You keep suggesting these albums and I never fucking listen. One day I’M going to finally give in. One day HD!!!

          • Howard Dean

            If you can only pick one, pick Inquisitors of Satan. If you can pick two, pick Inquisitors and Manifestations 2002. I think you’ll find


    • Dumpster Lung ᴰᵃᵐᵃᵍᵉ_ᴵⁿᶜ⁸⁹

      I haven’t spent enough time with it to really remember a lot other than the fact that I liked it. That’s true of so many artists/albums, though.

      • Praise for helping me catalog everything

    • Uh….yeah….Dubs said their name once in a Facebook post about four months ago. Don’t you pay attention to Dubs?!?!

      • Sir Crawfish The Based

        Dubs is an unsung hero.

  • Count_Breznak

    The Bölzer album is pretty….shit.

    • RJA

      I’ve heard this response from a few people and I find it so hard to believe – I will go into it with an open mind but I’m quite nervous.

      • Dumpster Lung ᴰᵃᵐᵃᵍᵉ_ᴵⁿᶜ⁸⁹

        I liked the couple singles that were streaming last week.

      • Count_Breznak

        I don’t even mind the changed vocal style (that much), but Im missing good riffs and…well, good songs.

  • Sir Crawfish The Based

    Skelteria is the saviour of metal.

    • CyberneticOrganism

      There is seriously a line in that first song about “ice cold fire devours the wigwam” or somesuch blubbering lyrical motherfuckery

    • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

      You going to Killing Joke or SCHWANZE!!?

      • Sir Crawfish The Based

        Swans YES. Got my ticket already. I was unable to see them last time and I was not happy.

        • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

          HA, same. Not got money for KJ, but I won’t miss Swans again.

          • Sir Crawfish The Based

            Killing Joke is really good, but it doesn’t give the ding to my dong like Swans does.

      • Dumpster Lung ᴰᵃᵐᵃᵍᵉ_ᴵⁿᶜ⁸⁹

        Lol I totally missed that you meant “Swans” until Sir Crawfish cleared that up.

    • Maik Beninton™

      Ghost is the saviour of metal.

  • Mmf. I still have a bunch of records from previous weeks to listen to.

    • My spotify playlist is like 12 hours long right now, and I have 6 albums in my bandcamp folder, and I somehow have to organize my AOTY lists

  • Waynecro

    I haven’t jammed Witchery in a really long time, but those new songs sound pretty good (though parts of “Nosferatu” sound a lot like parts of Slayer’s “Postmortem”). Fromhell sounds pretty interesting, so I’ll probably give that album a listen. DISCHORDIA!!! That Frozen Realm track is decent, and that Gotsu-Totsu-Kotsu song is pretty ripping. THOSE DARN GNOMES!!!

  • Brutalist_Receptacle


  • SomeGuyDude

    I wonder if I’m alone in finding it weird that “progressive” and “post,” despite the words being intended to mean nearly the same thing (using the basic elements of a genre and moving forward with them in new ways), are not only distinct subgenres but both also have their own set of cliches and tropes.
