This Toilet Tuesday (1/19/16)

Greetings, and welcome to another This Toilet Tuesday! You know the drill: new music happens and will continue happening until we’re all dead, and it’s our job to tell you what doesn’t suck. Fortunately for you, the best writers on the Toilet (read: a handful of people who volunteered once and are now stuck working for me for life) are wholeheartedly up to this sisyphean task. Enjoy the fruits of our labor below.


ulver

Ulver – ATGCLVLSSCAP (House of Mythology) [Electronic/Ambient]
Preview

Like life in its core, Ulver is a force of change and perpetual movement. Messe I.X-VI.X was probably the darkest and most dense album of the Christopher Rygg creative society, and their new record, cryptically titled under the 12 Zodiac signs, will move a little from the chamber ethos of Messe to the electrified waters of krautrock inspiration and the imaginative sinewy waves derived from psychedelic rock layers. If Ulver succeeded once again to write a new compelling artistic concept is up to you to judge. For me, I am very satisfied that Ulver continues to evolve through the ages. 1/22/16 (Lonk from Pennsylvania)


show me wolves

Show Me Wolves – The World They Took Over (False Beings Productions) [Progressive Black Metal]
Stream

I’ll typically check out anything tagged as progressive black metal, and The World They Took Over by Show Me Wolves is certainly defiant of black metal norms. Across these eight tracks, you’ll find major-key licks, hardcore-inspired two-step rhythms, tremolo whirlwinds, call-and-response lead lines, and a number of other interesting elements. All combined, these components create a final product that’s certainly ambitious, but I’ll need a few more listes before being convinced all these gears are working in unison.  FFO: The Lion’s Daughter, Vestiges, Deluge 1/18/16 (W.)


ehnahre

Ehnahre – Douve (Kathexis) [Death/Doom]
Preview

Douve was one of my most-anticipated albums of 2015, but then the months passed away without this monstrosity ever surfacing. Thankfully, Ehnahre have finally made good on their threat to upend all expectations; based on the few tracks this band have already released, Douve is poised to be one of the most challenging, interesting, and perhaps even breathtaking works of art released all year. If you enjoy avant-garde experimentation and want to broaden your musical horizons, do not skip this. FFO: Imperial Triumphant, Hadean, Chaos Echoes 1/22/16 (W.)


megadeth

Megadeth – Dystopia (Tradecraft) [Thrash]
Listen to “Dystopia,” “Fatal Illusion,” “The Threat is Real”

Ugggh. If Dave Mustaine wasn’t such an incredible douche, this would be a no-brainer. Based on the three tracks they have posted now, this is likely going to be the best Megadeth album in years. Kiko and Adler are excellent replacements for Broderick and Drover, bringing both their signature sounds to the Megadeth machine. Separate the music from the artist for maximum enjoyment. 1/22/16 (Spear)

  • Janitor Jim Duggan

    Yay, Megadeth! I’ll have to buy the album.

  • Dubs

    Maybe Megadave should’ve named the album Build a Wall.

    • Janitor Jim Duggan

      The songs are good though compared to Super Collider.

    • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

      Who cares about new Megadeth anyway? Just like new Slayer, Metallica, and Anthrax.

      • Dubs

        I enjoyed Endgame, but the last two were terrible, and everything after, I dunno, Countdown to Extinction has been hit or miss. I enjoyed some of the riffs on some of the new songs, though.

        • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

          I stop at Rust in Peace, like most people should.

          • Dubs

            That would have been my guess for you, honestly.

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            Not surprised, doc?? How do you top Tornado of Souls?

          • Dubs

            You don’t. That’s my favorite Mustaine solo.

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            Precisely.

          • Zeke

            i’m not into being a know it all, but I also am DEFINITELY not into giving mustaine credit for freedman’s greatness, so you’ve compelled me to point out that marty played the solo in tornado of souls

        • One of my friends convinced me to revisit Cryptic Writings, and I really enjoyed that one. Other than that, King Shit is totally right, stop at Rust In Peace

          • Waynecro

            I really like Cryptic Writings and Risk. Nostalgia is partially to blame for this.

      • Hammerdong Von Spookypoop

        My favorite guitarist from my favorite band is in there (Kiko), that’s the only reason I’m even bothering with it. I’m just waiting for Dave to fuck that all up so Kiko can get back to Angra.

        • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

          I’m sure this lineup won’t last.

          • Dubs

            You don’t need a crystal ball to see that.

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            What?!?!?!?

          • Spear

            It’s amazing that Dave keeps finding musicians that want to work with him.

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            It must be the whole allure of being “in” Megadeth. That’s all I can think of.

          • Spear

            I suppose. The money probably doesn’t hurt, either.

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            Well, there’s always that…

          • Money and a little bit of fame goes a long way for some.

          • Hammerdong Von Spookypoop

            Oh, how I’m waiting for it to fall apart. Angra’s pretty much done without Kiko, so waiting for him to get back in there.

          • It never does.

      • RepostedAvengedSevenfoldFan2

        My dad listens to pantara and megadeath n all that

        -Austin Young, 1 year ago

        • Sounds like he needs to tune your guitar.

        • more beer

          I will bet your dad beats you and your mom after an 18 pack of Bud Light!

          • Hammerdong Von Spookypoop

            Bud Light-Ritas

            FTFY

          • TrickleDownOvTacoKvltRiff

            Isn’t that statement dangerously close to an actual Cheap Trick lyric?

          • more beer

            To be honest I don’t know That just seems like the family dynamic there.

      • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

        I still enjoy Anthrax, even the newer ones. Saw them live a few years back and at least then they were good.

        • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

          I saw them in 2005, with the brief Among the Living lineup, open for Judas Priest. That was a pretty cool show.

      • Guppusmaximus

        I agree. Their classics make a great soundtrack to get swole to however their new material, respectively, doesn’t make my southern parts swollen. No jimmies tingled…

    • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

      Perhaps, he wants A New Mall?

      • Well, he needs those Hot Topic stores to sell all of his merch and albums.

        • Janitor Jim Duggan

          I lIke some of the shirts Hot Topic sells. The Megadeth ones are usually awful.

          • True, I usally get mine from Spencers.

          • Janitor Jim Duggan

            Spencers doesn’t have many shirts I like. At least the one in my mall doesnt.

    • CyberneticOrganism

      The album cover has the same floaty droid things as DT’s latest flusher.

      Oh my god… DAVE MUSTAINE IS LORD NAFARYUS

      http://loudwire.com/files/2015/12/Dream-Theater-The-Astonishing.jpg

    • It is unfortunate the people associate ass-hat comments from certain people with other people just because they self identify politically with those persons.

      • Dubs

        My comment is related to the lyrics on this new album. They’re pretty xenophobic.

        • Huh. I see.

          You know what I am getting at though.

        • BLACKBEARD UNFILTERED


          Justified obliteration, no one cares anymore
          The Messiah or mass murderer
          No controlling who comes through the door
          A culture made of cover ups
          Where leprosy touch their flesh
          Fall back with meetings and rendezvous”

          Yep, pretty coded language there

  • Abbath Megafarts.

    • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

      It’s not even very “black metal” either, which isn’t a shock anyway.

      • Way more better black metal to be heard.

        • El Jefe Ross

          I dont think it should even be categorized under black metal.

          • Agreed.

          • Hammerdong Von Spookypoop

            Disappointed at the lack of lolbuttz/lolbuttzcore this week.

          • You have a black metal project with an out-of-tune guitar!

          • Hammerdong Von Spookypoop

            Darkthrone?

      • Hammerdong Von Spookypoop

        Is he still doing the Popeye vocals?

        • El Jefe Ross

          Wouldn’t be Abbath without it.

        • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

          Hasn’t he always?

      • El Jefe Ross

        It’s pretty straight forward heavy metal. I hear lots of Motorhead stylization in it. Which doesn’t bother me at all.

        • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

          The only thing positive I can say about the Abbath release is it NOT having the Abyss Studio production. It sounds somewhat organic.

          • I was just going to mention the production. It does sound WAY better.

          • El Jefe Ross

            The production does sound pretty good on it.
            I’m pretty stoked for it, but i can understand why some people may not be

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            He just does nothing for me, really. I don’t really hate him, his music, etc. Just indifferent. Though I was lucky enough to see Immortal twice.

          • El Jefe Ross

            Fair enough

            Damn, that’s pretty awesome

          • RJA

            I’m into it – I think you will enjoy based on what I know about your musical tastes.

          • El Jefe Ross

            Pre- order box is on the way!
            You know me too well…

          • I agree.

            I want to hear the whole album. It have a trad metal vibe on the riffing (like Boss said, Motorhead). But, yes, the production sounds good to me.

      • RJA

        Yea, that was my take away – not really even black metal. I did enjoy though, I wouldn’t say megafarts but there is the occasional fart.

        • Stanley

          I pre-ordered it and now that I’ve listened to the stream, it is mildly odorous. I’m banking on it being a good workout record.

          • Cycled to Craft – Fuck the Universe this morning.

            https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MCuPnKpSk8E

          • Stanley

            This is the kind of production that you can work out to.

          • Exactly. Plus it’s a mean Sonofabitch.

          • Stanley

            Yes, and you can pretend you are going up hills on the slower parts and then pedal like fuck when it speeds up. Hail spinning to Black Metal!

          • Haha, you get it Stan.

          • Stanley

            I was listening to Bekëth Nexëhmü last night. Nice find man. Not so good for spinning to though. Unless you like riding in sand.

            https://www.youtube.com/watch?list=RDvcyi_xFtgGQ&v=Md1YXCAYUwQ

          • Yeah, it’s more of a sit down and relax sort of album. So much atmosphere! Love it.

            You’ll like this too. Same guy different project is all. Found the CD on Arcane Altar.

            https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_QymC2IO6Hk

          • If the production is too abrasive on this one then try this.

            https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y2pVK4GwkGY

          • Stanley

            Thanks. I will check them both out.

          • Pretty much anything Sir N. does is great.

            https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sJDVaP0j25c

          • Stanley
          • Stanley

            I found out yesterday that the dude from Totale Vernichtung is also in Rostorchester. It sounds just like TV but with a different vocalist. They have the EP over at Arcane Altar. I don’t know what it is about this guy, but I just connect with his guitar playing style.

            https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y1dhzJ2z26A

          • I saw this over there but have not checked it out. I’ll be sure to change that.

          • Waynecro

            Holy crap. This song is amazing! How have I never heard this before?

          • Damn, since you dig I’m going to try it out here.

          • Waynecro

            I’m a sucker for those black-metal guitar harmonies and melodies.

          • Sounds solid!

          • Waynecro

            I can’t stop listening to it. This jam is a serious contender for the next Toileteer-recommended Riff ov the Week.

          • Stanley

            Do it! Antimessiah FTW.

          • Stanley

            Cos TOO MUCH MUSIC! Glad you like it.

          • Waynecro

            That’s very true. Thanks oodles for bringing this to my attention!

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            Shit just checked out Arcane Altar. Unholy fuck!

          • Haha, shit’s insane.

    • more beer

      Well the guy has turned into black metals court jester.

      • That’s why so many people like him apparently.

        • more beer

          People do love clowns.

        • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

          That’s another thing, that pisses me off about him.

  • Hammerdong Von Spookypoop

    And Rotting Christ premiered a new song and trailer for the upcoming CD.

  • COAL ROLL

    I like that new Megadeth enough to roll the dice on preordering the vinyl.

  • YourLogicIsFlushed

    “Name an animal that you could mistake for a dog.”
    “Wolves?”
    “Show me Wolves!” *Points to the board*

    But seriously, excellent band, diggin it.

  • Spear, I want to hear that new Megadeth too.

    The Resistance posted this. It is less hardcore and a little bit more death:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SOQVsmY65j8

  • CyberneticOrganism

    Lolz at that Czarnobog. Tune your fucking guitar indeed.

    • People that tune their guitars listen to Dream Theater.

    • COAL ROLL

      but you see…they’re selling it on cassette, so they expect that when you play it on your shitty old tape player the inconsistent tape speed from the shitty old motor will balance out the out of tune guitars

    • u just don’t get it. music is SUPPOSED to sound shitty.

    • Hammerdong Von Spookypoop

      And the fucking drumming sounds like they’re banging sandblocks together, then switches to the sound of someone banging cardboard boxes in a janitor’s closet. Dare I say it, this is even worse than Darkthrone!

  • Stanley

    That first link under Megadeth doesn’t sound like Megadeth at all.

    • Spear

      Oops

      • Dubs

        Don’t worry, I’ve got your back like a butt-crack.

        • Spear

          I can always count on you to be there for my butt.

  • Mmf, can’t wait to listen to that new Brutality when I get home. If you haven’t heard their older stuff educate yourself.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3x2VBK9ZjgE

    • My local record shop has a couple classic Brutality albums, but every time I go I always end up finding something that edges it out (like Drudkh’s first two albums)

      • Can’t blame you, Autumn Aurora is magnificent.

  • Spear

    Actual “Dystopia” link for anyone who cares/is too lazy to find it themselves: https://youtu.be/QrV61ATP3Ec

  • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

    Sorry Spear, this one is on me.
    I really tried, I did.

    • Spear

      It’s all good, O ursan lord

    • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

      So don’t forget to check out BRUTALITY or BORKNAGAR ye peeps.

  • New Torture Rack song. Members from Cemetery Lust and Blood Freak.

  • COAL ROLL

    Borknagar is yawn

  • TrickleDownOvTacoKvltRiff

    If I’ve said it once I’ve said it a million times. I’m in it for the music peeps, I got the music in me. O and Fuck the Eagles!

  • I posted this on my FB yesterday, but I got caught up in this album and really dig it. A more punkier early Iron Maiden, basically

  • King Shit of Fuck Mountain
  • REVENGE Confirmed to play Hells Headbash.

    • Same with Angelcorpse.

    • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

      Oh shit. They’re not fucking around this year.

      • So far so savage. Fuck!

        • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

          Yes!

  • Eliza
    • Dubs

      I just listened to this album. I almost didn’t because of the vocals on the first track, but I’m really glad I stuck with it.

      • BLACKBEARD UNFILTERED

        Do they get better or something? Im 100% down with anything ex-russian circles involved . . . Them vocals tho

        • Eliza

          Once you get used to the vocals, you can appreciate the great music. I think they fit the tone.

        • Dubs

          I’d say that I grew accustomed to them, and the power of the music won me over.

      • Eliza

        I had to listen to it several times to really get into it, but I love it.

    • Bloodiest – Bloodiest
      I assume this is the followup to their EP, Bloody Blood Blood?

      • Eliza

        XD No, I think their previous album was called Descending.

        • El Jefe Ross

          Were you able to get a bandcamp account?

          • Eliza

            No, but it doesn’t mattet

          • There is no 24 without me, this will do horribly.

          • Hammerdong Von Spookypoop

            Most likely, especially considering how quick it died off the last time. And to think, Keifer quit a magnificent show like Touch to do that train wreck of a season.

          • What they should’ve done was taken the chick that was essentially the female version of me and continued the show with her, but fox isn’t that great at intelligence. They’re bringing back prison break as well lol.

          • Hammerdong Von Spookypoop

            They are pretty much relying on shit like Glee and American Idol, whose rating have been plummeting for nearly a decade, to carry them through. Hence so much shitty programming and bad decisions, like getting rid of Good Guys after only two seasons.

    • Lacertilian

      After the long lead up to this album, I’m slightly disappointed with it after listening yesterday.

      • 365ChaosRiddenDays

        I remember your piece of writing here at TOH but what is not so compelling for you?

        • Lacertilian

          I didn’t find the rest of the album to be as interesting as the lead-up track.

  • Waynecro

    Parasite of Human Side sounds fuckin’ cool, man!

  • TheCheezFace
