This Toilet Tuesday (1/13/15)


Hello, fellow citizens of the crapper, and welcome to Toilet Tuesday! There’s new music aplenty this week and I’m tapped for poop metaphors right now, so I’ll let you get right to it. Jack Bauer, Leif Bearikson, W, and I have listed our favorites below. Enjoy!


Sylosis – Dormant Heart (Nuclear Blast) [Thrash]

It’s no secret how much I love Sylosis. They are one of the best at combining death and thrash and at the same time giving it a sound all their own. They excel at writing super tasty riffs. Monolith was a phenomenal record and Dormant Heart is just as good if not better. (Jack Bauer)

unborn generation

Unborn Generation – Dead Generation of Men (Independent) [Grindcore]
Listen to “In the Corner”

These guys write some tasty grind. Kind of reminds me of Kataplexis with less raspy vocals. Good shit. (Jack Bauer)


Ghoulgotha – The Deathmass Cloak (Dark Descent) [Death/Doom]
Listen to “Austere Urns”

Following up on their massive 2014, Dark Descent is firing its first salvo of the new year with the bugged out, constantly shifting death/doom of Ghoulgotha. The sound of The Deathmass Cloak is akin to your favorite OSDM band being warped and mutilated like every tertiary character ever presented in a Hellraiser movie. I hope you enjoy it, because you’re going to be seeing Ghoulgotha quite a bit. According to the band, on top of their debut they are also releasing a new MLP late this year, a handful of splits, and already have their next record written and ready for 2016. Prepare yourself for the onslaught by listening above. (Leif Bearikson)


Nebelfront – Only in my Dreams (Cursed Productions) [Black Metal]
Listen to “Kalt,” “Somewhere”

Imagine, if you will, depressive black metal as played by a band of Vikings. Now image that you’re hearing that played through some muddy speakers. What you should be picturing is Nebelfront. Combining raw, buzzing riffs with folk melodies and a somber tone, they bring the melancholy, and they bring it hard. Interestingly, some of the riffs even remind me a bit of doom metal, harkening back to stalwarts Doomsword. Promo track “Kalt” sends your emotions plummeting to rock bottom midway through the song before building to a grandiose revisit of the main riff. This is beautiful and agonizing stuff. FFO: Lifelover, early Primordial, Doomsword (W.)

desolate shrine

Desolate Shrine – The Heart of the Netherworld (Dark Descent) [Blackened Death]
Listen to “Black Fires of God”

Desolate Shrine are here to shatter your places of worship. These blackened death sadists start “Black Fires of God” off with a tumultuous bang, and the meteoric riffs begin raining down on your heads like the vengeful fury of an angry deity. Vocals cycle between demoniac snarls and twisted shrieks, but the aggression never lets up. This song slays. FFO: Blood of Kingu, Keep of Kalessin, Lightning Swords of Death (W.)

orden ogan

Orden Ogan – Ravenhead (AFM Records) [Power Metal]
Listen to “F.E.V.E.R.”

I suspect that the video for “F.E.V.E.R.” happened because the band got lost on their way to a Kalmah video shoot and are now permanently stuck in a swamp somewhere. The swamp madness seems to have had an effect on their music as well; “F.E.V.E.R.” wouldn’t sound entirely out of place on a Kalmah record with it’s triumphant, galloping riffs and furious lead guitar. Orden Ogan really distinguish themselves with the vocals, between the singer’s kinda raspy, kinda growly tenor and the massive choruses. Ravenhead looks to be an early favorite of 2015 for me.
