As the year draws to a close, one tends to look back on the things they’ve done; their triumphs and defeats, the friends they’ve made or left behind, the lessons they’ve learned. In the music world, we’ve all been agonizing over our best- and worst-ovs, re-listening to those gems others may have passed over or that you may have forgotten about. To all of this, I give a hearty “fuck that!” It’s still 2014 and there’s still new music to be had! Though December’s release schedule resembles those last few sputtering splurts of a bad case of food poisoning (you know the kind, where your bowels are desperately trying to squeeze out anything solid but succeeding only in tearing themselves apart), a few good releases keep popping up. Happy listening!


belliciste

Belliciste – Sceadugenga (CD release- Todestrieb Records) [Black Metal]

Listen

As odd as it sounds, it takes a discerning ear to dial in the sound needed for a raw, nasty recording. That’s not to say there’s only one way to do it, but there is a massive cringe factor when bands rocket past “rough around the edges” and end up in “lolbuttz.” Sceadugenga, the unpronounceable debut full length from black metal project Belliciste, dials in plenty of raw edge and punkish energy without sacrificing listenability. The reverb-drenched shrieks, thick guitar tone, and DIY drum sound blend excellently for a raw, honest black metal aesthetic. The “decomposed punk” descriptor given by the solo artist is fulfilled without question, as the two sample tracks contain plenty of nasty attitude in the riffs and a gritty, aggressive drumming style. His Facebook page only has 89 likes as of writing this and the album is at name-your-price on Bandcamp, so this is your perfect opportunity to get a kvlt kard up your sleeve. (Stockhausen)


consecration

Consecration – Ephemerality (UKEM Records) [Death/Doom]

Stream

As a dead composer who likes the occasional change of pace in his doom, Consecration is just the band for me. Obviously we have the slowly churning, crushing riffage you would expect from a band with a doom descriptor, but these guys know when to pick it up every now and then for some OSDM fury. There’s a monstrous sound the to album that’s topped off with some seriously gut-wrenching vocals, the kind that make you want to grab a stranger by the shoulders and just scream “DEATH METAAAAAAAL!!!” into his poor, poser face. You can pick up a digital copy or physical copy through the Bandcamp page, so get out your vest and pick this one up. (Stockhausen)


incursed

Incursed – Elderslied (Independent) [Folk Metal]

Preview

Since I’m still coming to grips with the idea that I’m not going to hear Time II at any point in my lifetime (II), I’ve been looking for a band to fill that epic folk metal hole in my heart. Based on the preview of Elderslied, I’m hopefuly that Incursed will be the band to do just that. I enjoyed their EP from earlier this year, Beer Bloodbath, and the new album sounds like it will be a bigger version of that. In any case, they’re a more-than-solid folk metal band that deserve your attention. (Spear)


dargonomel

Dargonomel – In Abyssum Diaboli (NitroAtmosfericum) [Death Metal]

Listen to “Cursed Blessing”

I initially checked out Dargonomel because that name is silly and sounds like a demon from Warcraft 3. What I found though was some delicious riffing and straightforward brutality. At first glance, this doesn’t appear to be the most unique death metal song you’ll ever hear, but there’s something interesting and intriguing that latches onto your brain during the “chorus” sequence. I can’t tell if that’s a synth in the background or just a very clever sequence of keys, but it reminds me of the “Reign Carrion” era of Vader (there’s that name again). This is good, straightforward DM with enough frills to keep you hooked. I dig. FFO: Vader, Horrendous, Hate Eternal. (W.)


prognathe

Prognathe – Revelation Flesh (Peccata Mundi Records) [Sludge]

Listen to “Follow the Tracks”

Well, this is horrifying. And a little silly. Prognathe meld sludge, grind, black metal, and death metal into an abrasive, hideous blend that alternates from rampaging like a troll on a crack-bender to plodding along like a menacing, unstoppable juggernaut under a hail of gunfire. The vocals remind me a bit of The Sun Through a Telescope at times. They’re a bit off-putting at first, but stick with it to see what this band is doing. FFO: TSTaT, The Amenta, Ulcerate, that movie The Descent. (W.)


Abhoth – Abhoth (Satanath/Darknagar/Grotesques Sound) [Death Metal]
Stream

Barathrum – Jetblack Warmetal (Saturnal Records) [Black Metal]
Listen to “Warmetal”

    Don’t just take W’s word on that Prognathe, he put me on that game yesterday and it’s pretty sweet brutal.

    • Same. The Donald Duck vox are a turnoff but there is some sweet jammage in there.

      • Edward #negrod4eva

        I put it on while I was prepping and fixing my dinner last night. Dinner still turned out Ok.

        • What part of your dinner was broken?

            lol

    • VVorld Peace

      If you guys want to hear an absolutely killer riff, check out “The Old Man Said”

      • Renan Ribeiro

        Listening to them right now and woah, great stuff, it’s kinda groovy

        • VVorld Peace

          And kinda all over the place, but I dig.

    • VVorld Peace

    • it’s good!!!111

      • VVorld Peace

        I tossed them a couple Euros!

  • Tyree

    I’m your huckleberry.

  • Scrimm

    Nothing new for me this week. Sad.

  • YourLogicIsFlushed

    Not only do I not recognize one band, I also don’t recognize one record label. Anything special out there? I’ll probably check out that folk metal for the lifetime (II) joke. I chuckled.

    • Hubert, Goat ov Doom and Void

      “Independant” is a pretty good record label. Lot’s of bands on that one.

      • EsusMoose

        I heard hipsters really like that label, and I’m supposed to hate them,their free trade coffee and anything else they like.

        • Glock Jim

          Your picture here begs to differ… you hipster mouse you.

          [edit: upon closer examination, I’ve discovered that you are a Corgi]

          • EsusMoose

            It’s a corgis who looks like Hugh Hefner, it’s basically a dachshund that’s fatter who owns a pipe and only wears robes

    • PUKAT HARIMAU is good, though i’m having trouble more music by them…

    • Spear

      Incursed definitely tickles my pickle.

      • VVorld Peace

        Then it will tickle your pickle to know they said thanks for talking about them!

        • Spear

          Pickle is rapidly approaching maximum tickle.

  • Howard Dean

    This is actually a pretty solid week. I had totally forgotten about that Barathrum rerelease of demo/EP material. And Morbosidad! That new EP is a bruiser. Good shit!

    • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

      Is no demo. It is the Debut. Record label went under before it could be released and stole the tapes in the process.

      • Howard Dean

        Ah, I see. Thanks, F(r)i(e)nn(d)!

        • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

          You welcome. You may as well, if ye be a warmetal lover like I, revel in the information that after re-releasing multiple demos next year, it is time for new Barathrum. And that they still intend to release 16 albums.

    • a great week for discovering new stuff (for me)!!

  • Howard Dean

    Unrelated: I’ve now listened to the new StarGazer album several times. Verdict?

    Wow. This is their best album yet. I was actually shocked at how good the musicianship is on the album. Now, they’ve always been a great band with great musicians, but I feel this album really take it to a whole new level. The guitars are great, of course, but the drumming and the bass are something else. I think this album has the best basslines I’ve heard in a long time. And that drumming is just so fresh–feels almost jazzy. Also: The Grand Equalizer is one of the best songs I’ve heard all year. Holy fuck!

    • VVorld Peace

      HD, I don’t recall your feelings on Ulcerate.

      • Howard Dean

        Overall, I enjoy their stuff. Not a band I listen to all the time, but when I throw on a record, I usually enjoy it.

        I really dig Everything is Fire. For me, that is their best. The debut was pretty meh. You could see/hear them trying to find their sound. It just didn’t resonate with me. Destroyer of Worlds sounded like the band getting too big for their britches. It was just kind of massive and aimless, and was a taxing listen. Vermis is much better than DoW for me, and seemed like a return to form. They create an amazingly huge sound for three dudes.

        • VVorld Peace

          Interesting. I like the Everything is Fire and Destroyer of Worlds phase more.

    • Album rules worlds, dude.

    • Simon PhoenixKing

      Yep, I knew you’d dig it. The basswork on the album is incredible.

      • Howard Dean

        Yeah, I was actually blown away by it. I expected to like it, but I didn’t expect it to be this good. After my first time through, I was like “this is pretty damn good!” But starting on my second and third spin, I was like “holy shit, this is incredible.” Had I heard it three or four weeks ago, it definitely would’ve made it onto my Top 10.

        • Simon PhoenixKing

          Yeah that’s the only issue I have with the album; that it came out WAY too late in the year. I imagine it would’ve been on a lot more year end lists if it had came out a month or so earlier.

  • Hubert, Goat ov Doom and Void

    “Ithdabquth Qliphoth” is a really good bandname if you’re an idiot.

  • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

    Stocky, my dear Belliciste is awesomatic. Also far too easy to pronounce to join the league of unpronouncable mighties.

    Jetblack/Warmetal is the best thing all month.

  • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

    Stocky, my dear Belliciste is awesomatic. Also far too easy to pronounce to join the league of unpronouncable mighties.

    Jetblack/Warmetal is the best thing all month.

  • Hubert, Goat ov Doom and Void

    Today I learned that there is a record label called “Go Fuck Yourself”. Life is full of surprises.

    • Xan

      Every day we learn to fuck ourselves a little harder.

    • Ha! It’s like someone watched Glengarry Glen Ross too many times. “What’s my label name? Go fuck yourself, that’s my label name.”
      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MtXLCg08bcI

      • VVorld Peace

        Man, that speech is actually incredible.

        • Incredible levels of sociopathy

          • VVorld Peace

            Haha. True.

          • KJM

            And there are people who view this character as a role model, fucking scary.

          • VVorld Peace

            Your leads are weak, KJM!

            From a mentoring standpoint, this approach is terrible. Extrinsic motivation never, ever beats intrinsic motivation.

          • KJM

            Sour Diesel is for closers!!

          • I know. I’ve worked closely with sales folks for a long time. When hiring, you’re ACTUALLY looking for these freaks. Life is weird.

        • TrickleDownOvTacoKvltRiff

          yes! and schwetty balls…another baldwin classic!

      • Janitor Jim Dvggan’s Spooky To

        I love the Christmas version of this from Saturday Night Live.

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

      • TrickleDownOvTacoKvltRiff

        Not possible!

  • Janitor Jim Dvggan’s Spooky To

    The In Flames reissues finally came out in the US last week. I wish I would have known that.

    • EsusMoose

      So I didn’t care for jester race, what other albums of theirs may sway my opinion of In Flames?

      • Whoracle is the best imo.

      • Janitor Jim Dvggan’s Spooky To

        Lunar Strain, Whoracle, Colony and Clayman. Anything after that is crappy except for Siren Charms.

        • EsusMoose

          So I’ll start with Whoracle as you and joe recommended it, probably hit lunar strain and go from there after I catch up with this years releases

          • VVorld Peace

            For the record, most of us here thought Siren Charms was total crap.

          • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

            But not all, begone heretic!

          • VVorld Peace

            Be careful with those claws, friend. You just got them back.

          • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

            Rrääyrr! I’ll let no one take ’em away again. My precious.
            (@EsusMoose, Whoracle is a wrong place to start, it blows and sucks at the same time.)

          • EsusMoose

            I have the perception that many people dislike the latest releases of In Flames

          • Janitor Jim Dvggan’s Spooky To

            I am the resident Siren Charms defender and I admit it doesn’t sound like In Flames but what have they made since Clayman that sounded like their take on melodic death metal? Siren Charms is the evolution of a sound they started experimenting with on Reroute To Remain and tinkered with on their subsequent albums leading up to its perfection on Siren Charms.

          • EsusMoose

            I’ll give it a try after I’ve taken in the earlier material and see what I think, it may be a good stand alone album, a evolution of their sound as you said or a poor departure from it. As I run spotty premium I’ll listen to most of their stuff and if one really hits me as great I’ll probably add it to my list of albums to get physical copies of.

          • Matt Pike’s Sweaty Left Nipple

            “Evolution” isn’t the word I would have used, but that’s just my personal opinion.
            1990’s In Flames >>>>>>>>>> 2000’s/present-day In Flames. Period.

          • EsusMoose

            I may have the same opinion as yours once I listen to it and only get half way through but I’ll leave my statement unbiased till I actually listen to it

      • Come Clarity is decent. it’s not brutal like their old stuff but still okay.

        • Janitor Jim Dvggan’s Spooky To

          I hated Come Clarity.

      • Janitor Jim Dvggan’s Spooky To

        I recommend buying the reissues from your nearest Best Buy because they’re 10 dollars there compared to not being sold on Amazon.

      • Stan Laurel

        Clayman or anything prior.

  • Xan

    I feel your pain of never getting to listen to Time II. I haven’t followed it’s epic saga of bullshit, but I have no idea what in the hell could possibly happen to make releasing an album so difficult.

    • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

      Not getting a free home studio, basically.

    • EsusMoose

      Expecting that people would funnel money into a folk metal album like it’s a pop album. Or just being really lazy

    • Spear

      I have been following the epic saga of bullshit, and it really just comes down to Jari wanting full control of everything, including the studio and its equipment. What really gets me is that Wintersun’s practise space is at Sonic Pump Studios. They could seriously just record everything there and hand all the tracks off to Jari for mastering. At this point, though, I’m ready to give him whatever he wants if it means he’ll shut up and make music.

      • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

        Funny enough, I’d rather never see Time II than see Jari get his way. He’s beyond irritating me.

        • Spear

          I definitely understand that sentiment, but I like his music way too much to just let it go.

          • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

            I like it too, lest no one think otherwise, but as much as I want Time II, he’s too much of a tool for me to give him what he wants. I did like TI more than the debut. And you’ll never go wrong with Hahto.

      • Xan

        That blows. I thought Time I was pretty damn good.

  • Æ (Justin Nowlin)

    i go to the local record store every Tuesday, and this is the type of week when I just buy an album that was released earlier in the year. Sometimes I even buy old albums that I just do not own. I think today I’ll be buying the latest Everytime I die and the latest Within the Ruins release.

    • VVorld Peace

      Buy an AEvangelist album.

    • VVorld Peace

      And buy a Portal record.

    • VVorld Peace

      Also buy Obscura by Gorguts if you don’t own it.

      • Æ (Justin Nowlin)

        Already have that album, it’s incredible that I still listen to it. I usually stop listening to an album after a couple of months, but not Gorguts. And I doubt there will be an Portal or AEvangelist album there. They didn’t even have the Krokodil album (if you haven’t, you should check it out). I’ll just spotify those two bands. Which releases would you recommend?

        • VVorld Peace

          For Portal, Vexovoid. It’s their most accessible (haha) work. For AEvangelist, I think they only have the album Omen Ex Simulacra on Spotify. Be forewarned, that album is extremely daunting and difficult to listen to. It legitimately unnerved me the first time I heard it.

          • Æ (Justin Nowlin)

            I’ll try it before bed. That’s the only time I feel I can actually fully listen and experience music.

          • VVorld Peace

            Keep your night-light handy 😉

      • Howard Dean

        Finding that album on CD is a chore.

        • VVorld Peace

          I actually only own it on digital.

          • Howard Dean

            Getting the CD has been a long time pain in my balls. I’ve almost pulled the trigger a few times on Discogs and eBay (at nearly astronomical asking prices), but just couldn’t do it. I have this fear that a reissue will be announced the moment I pay $70 for a used copy.

          • VVorld Peace

            With the recent success of Colored Sands, I think a reissue is almost in the bag. Plus, I think they recently reissued their first two albums.

          • Howard Dean

            Yep. And that’s why I haven’t pulled the trigger.

            But the longer the wait goes on, the more enticing it gets to buy a used Obscura. Because I would think a new reissue would have hit us by now. It just never happens. Weird.

          • JWG

            I’m still looking for the digipak release version of Considered Dead. I missed it at the time of release, but did manage to find Erosion of Sanity.

            I will not settle for the 2-album roadrunner set. I’ve already got one of the two obviously.

    • Glock Jim

      Buy ALL the Death Grips.

      • Edward #negrod4eva

        Glock you and the Dubya are on fire today. I like what you guys are up to. I like it a lot.

        • VVorld Peace

          I’m trying to baptize him in Skronk, but I can get behind what Jimbo is doing too.

          • Skronk is an acquired taste, I didn’t get into it until late this year, but it’s a pretty damn good year to get into it through Artificial Brain, Baring Teeth, etc.

          • VVorld Peace

            It is indeed a good year for it. I actually wouldn’t recommend Obscura to the uninitiated. That isn’t an album most people “get” on their first listen.

          • I still don’t own Obscura yet (poser alert) but I have/love Colored Sands. I’ve been consuming music quicker and quicker as of late, and it’s nice to get challenging releases like those that take longer to absorb.

          • VVorld Peace

            That album is amazeballs. Also, per our conversation yesterday, Mitochondrion: http://mitochondrion.ca/album/parasignosis

          • yes i love that one too. thanks for the reminder… looks like there’s an EP from last year about which i didn’t know! (that’s cause 2013 was pre-toilet)

          • VVorld Peace

            I like Colored Sands more, but that could be because it feels a bit more cohesive and tractable.

          • I did!

          • Glock Jim

            I need to thank you for putting me onto Skronk. It’s a whole new world for me, and I love it.

          • VVorld Peace

            A WHOLE NEEEEWWW WOOOOOOOORLD!

            You’re my Princess Jasmine, Jimbo.

          • Glock Jim

            Take me away from here, W., my Aladdin (though I know YOU ain’t no phony. You need no genie for your magic).

          • What is this skronk all you cool kids keep talking about?

      • Æ (Justin Nowlin)

        I own one Death Grips release, but it’s not really for me. I know music well enough to know that the music is great, but just not my taste.

        • VVorld Peace

          Which one, out of curiosity?

          • Æ (Justin Nowlin)

            No Love, Deep Web

          • VVorld Peace

            Hmm. That one is interesting. Ex Military is the one that hooked me, and I think @disqus_77PBSiK8Ug:disqus and @disqus_4E0xQtrX2p:disqus would say the same.

          • Æ (Justin Nowlin)

            I’ll try that one out as well.

        • I feel you. I prefer my hip hop to be a little more brainless.

          • Æ (Justin Nowlin)

            I’m just not a hip-hop or rap guy. I can’t relate to it. I usually only listen to metal or country because I live in a small farm town, and because I can relate to the anger metal usually breeds.

        • Glock Jim

          That is a very fair response. Carry on.

          • Æ (Justin Nowlin)

            I’m going to give them another try today at work though.

          • Glock Jim

            They did take me time, but that’s usually true of most of the bands I love. I’m always iffy at first, but there’s something that draws me in, and eventually I find myself singing their praises on metal websites.

          • Æ (Justin Nowlin)

            Give me your three favorite releases from them, so I have a starting point.

          • Glock Jim

            Exmilitary is, I think, the best place to start. Then listen to The Money Store. Since you already have No Love Deep Web, pick up Government Plates. But I think starting with Exmilitary and taking the time to try and understand it (if and only if you feel it’s worth it!) is your best route into their other material.

      • Any vids you’d recommend for a noob like me? I rarely listen to newer rap/hip hop, but I’ll give it a try.

    • I’m down with both of those releases. This guy, he’s alright.

        Nice to hear that, I’m used to hearing “Your taste isn’t ‘true metal’ or it’s not kvlt enough”

        • Before I started coming to the Toilet, I mostly listened to metalcore and deathcore, so I still have lots of respect for bands in those genres who do interesting/good work. That newest ETID album made my year end list and that WtR album is also pretty fantastic, if a bit overproduced, but that’s just their style.

          • Æ (Justin Nowlin)

            I never really had a specific genre I liked. I just like artist more than anything. But lately I’ve been listening to a lot of hardcore. Specifically the new The Ghost Inside. Freaking fantastic work on that album. And I saw WtR with one of my favorite bands (Whitechapel) and just loved it.

          • I saw them live about a week ago (The Ghost Inside) I haven’t picked up their newest release yet, but they were absolutely fantastic live. Within the Ruins is also incredibly tight live. Great bands.

          • Æ (Justin Nowlin)

            I’m jealous. I had a final to take the day after they were near me. But to compensate I bought tickets to see Cattle Decap and then tickets to see Miss May I and August Burns Red.

          • Not exactly my jam but I saw them open for Hatebreed and it was p sweet.

          • Æ (Justin Nowlin)

            Hatebreed is one of the coolest bands to see live. They’re the band that got me into hardcore

          • I’m not sure how long you’ve been into it, but I can prob offer you a few recs for hardcore if you’re looking.

          • Æ (Justin Nowlin)

            I’m always looking for music, so that’d be great! Right now in the hardcore world I love Hatebreed, Everytime I die, The Ghost Inside, Converge, and Biohazard.

          • Janitor Jim Dvggan’s Spooky To

            I also recommend a lot of 80’s NYHC such as Madball, All Out War and other hardcore such as Gang Green.

          • Æ (Justin Nowlin)

            I love me some Madball, I’ll look into All Out War and Gang green too.

          • KJM

            I got kicked in the teeth at a Gang Green show(by accident).

          • Madball’s got a new one out, I think.

          • Stan Laurel

            Gang Green. Wow. Haven’t heard that name for a while. This was my jam.

          • Stan Laurel

            If you want old school my faves are Crumbsuckers – Life of Dreams and Agnostic Front – Victim in Pain. Crumbsuckers were pushing the boundaries of hardcore on this release but the AF album is straight forward in your face stuff.

          • I put together a quick playlist with some bands you might wanna know about. Tried to cover older and newer stuff with some PV/grinder stuff sprinkled throughout.

          • Related to The Ghost Inside, you could check out American Me, Expire, Kublai Khan, Counterparts (melodic hardcore, kinda depressing but uplifting at the same time), and Code Orange.

          • Æ (Justin Nowlin)

            I just saw Code Orange with Down about a week ago. They’re like hardcore, but with a sprinkle of Nirvana. I loved it.

          • Can’t go wrong with the classics!

            https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fbnCgyAJ5jE

          • Janitor Jim Dvggan’s Spooky To

            Hatebreed rules live. I got punched in the face in the pit at that show. Shadows Fall, Acacia Strain and Battlecross opened for them and it ruled.

          • Æ (Justin Nowlin)

            My buddy who I go to every concert is not a mosher at all. He had never heard of Hatebreed until Knotfest, and I see that he was really digging them. I’m banging my head while Jasta is yelling “DESTROY EVERYTHING”, I look over to my firend to see he’s going hard in the pit for the first time. I was pretty pumped lol. Jasta has some strange powers I guess.

          • Lacertilian

            I liked Hatebreed until I saw Terror.

          • The Acacia Strain is just absolute insanity live. Shit gets so violent and so great.

          • Death

            Lol poser

          • BLVKKBEVRD THE EPONYMOVS

            Ann, you know I got your back on the new ETID. The scurbs wouldnt know fun if it chopped their decrepit wieners off *ahem*@metaphysicalanus:disqus

        • Howard Dean

          Your taste isn’t trve metal and you are not kvlt enough.

          • Æ (Justin Nowlin)

            Thanks lad.

          • BLVKKBEVRD THE EPONYMOVS

            Howard Dean tried to flush the new Atlas Moth. Ignore everything he says.

    • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

      I actually usually buy only old albums like that. If it’s new and I like it’s pre-order or if I order it otherwise (if it’s out). I rarely ever buy new stuff spontaneously, mostly because they cost a fortune.

      • Æ (Justin Nowlin)

        I prefer pre-orders because I like getting a new shirt to go with the CD, but unfortunately not a lot of bands do very good pre-orders. I usually end up spending no less than $30 each trip because I want everything.

        • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

          I get them because they usually end up being cheaper even if there are no bundles. I can’t afford to buy all the music I want in a year if I pay the full-price.

          • Æ (Justin Nowlin)

            I have a membership at my record store that gets me 15% off every purchase, sometimes I even get more.

          • Nordling Rites Ov Karhu

            Sweet deal. I’ve a membership too, but with far lesser discount.

  • Glock Jim

    I always click on the “lolbuttz” ones, and they’re always so lolbuttz. Today’s was spectacular.

    • Spear

      I listened to it way too many times trying to figure out if the drummer was really that off the beat or if I was imagining it.

      • that’s how trve he is

        • Spear

          Too kvlt for a metronome

      • CT-12

        Where’s Hunter Hunt-Hendrix when you need him?

        • Virgil the Ghost Poet

          His new CD is coming soon.

    • Stan Laurel

      I clicked around on a few of their other videos on youtube. Priceless! They’ve even got a pentagram and an inverted cross made out of an old coat hanger on the wall of their ‘rehersal’ space.

      • Glock Jim

        That’s exceptional. It’s like the perfect chic blend of lolbuttz and SATAN.

      • CT-12

        Saw that as well

    • Gvrp

      I saw ‘Graveyard’ and hoped it would be a followup to this album.

      I wish I read the whole thing.

      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AdG4gcT7nRc

  • Stan Laurel

    That Graveyard track is good for a laugh on a Tuesday morning. Definitely brought a smile to my face anyway.

  • Finally got around to actually purchasing the newest Mastodon, Killer Be Killed and Behemoth releases, so I’ll be jamming those this week.

    • Æ (Justin Nowlin)

      All three of those were on my top 10 list. I plan on buy all three on vinyl at some point!

    • Matt Pike’s Sweaty Left Nipple

      Nice. I really enjoyed Killer Be Killed. Way better than I expected it to be.

  • TrickleDownOvTacoKvltRiff

    haha! Great set up and BOOM the delivery! “To all of this, I give a hearty “fuck that!”…& I say AMEN to that!

  • JWG

    It took me much longer than it should have to realize that “ShadowIcon” is Shadow Icon, and not the name of a convention for “Shad Owls”, whatever those are.

  • BLVKKBEVRD THE EPONYMOVS

    Graveyard as lolbuttz.

    i lolbuttzed.

    • Spear

      I can almost guarantee it’s not the Graveyard you think it is.

      • BLVKKBEVRD THE EPONYMOVS

        *listens to the new Young and in the Way instead.

  • Miguel Serra

    If I dug Consecration I still can have this? (thank me later…)

  • Renan Ribeiro

    No matter what drops I keep revisiting Blizzard At Sea’s Certain Structures since it was featured here.
