This Toilet Tuesday (12/8/15)

End-of-year listmania is in full force here at the Toilet, wherein we sift through the thousands of albums we heard to crown a select few as champions; paragons for the others to gaze upon in wonder and adoration. So why not clog up that process with a few more albums? There are still four Tuesdays left this year (this one included), and I fully intend to cram music down your throats until you all either explode or I keel over in exhaustion. Find your new album of the year below and undo all that hard work you put into building your list.


Fimbulvinter

Fimbulvinter – Начертаны резы древних заклятий (Symbol of Domination) [Black Metal]
Stream

Melodic and folkloric passages decorate the frozen spectral music of Fimbulvinter. Uncompromising raspy vocals lead the way through frozen battlefields, showing the remorse of the fighting and the fervor of the ancient. With a couple of old-school thrash winks on the flow of the songs, this Russian band is delivering a killer blow to the increasing folk black metal of Europe. 12/6/15 (Link)


nar mattaru

Nar Mattaru – Ancient Atomic Warfare (I, Voidhanger) [Death Metal]
Stream

If you want to introduce an acquaintance to the finesse of South American death metal sound, you can probably find Nar Mattaru’s Ancient Atomic Warfare as a good record that encases the guidelines of our traditional and dark style. An accurate drumworking cements the bases for twisting exotic guitar lines that does not get scared to exalt the Old Gods that dwell in the depths. Thanks to Dr. W for the mention on his killer mini-review of this record. 12/7/15 (Link)


ur durrgurrrrrrr

Ur Draugr – With Hunger Undying (ATMF Records) [Hideous Skronk]
Stream

If I had to pick one word to describe With Hunger Undying, it would be sick. Just listen to “Seeds Sown in Famine”. While a nauseous guitar lead vomits all over the rhythm skronk, a stuttering, drunken drum snare stumbles across the scene. So much seems to be going wrong in each song, yet all the parts somehow combine to make something truly special. Do not miss it. FFO: Ad Nauseam, Putridity, Dystrophy 12/7/15 [Spear note: yes, they released it early a couple weeks ago, but I’m still putting it here because reasons] (W.)


forn

Fórn – Weltschmerz (Gildead Media) [Doom/Sludge]
Stream

You awaken from fevered dreams to find yourself adrift on a battered raft composed of scraps of what was formerly Her Majesty’s Ship. The salt water stings your eyes as you squint against the oppressive sunlight to search for any hope of rescue upon the horizon. All that you see is the endless roll of the tides. You struggle in vain to remember the details of the horrifying giant that sundered your ship to splinters. You roll on your back and close your eyes, allowing the tidal might of the eternal ocean to carry you where it will. You make peace with death and hope that you will soon join your comrades in a vault at the depths of the abyss. You hear Fórn’s Weltschmerz lulling you into oblivion. FFO: Ahab, Izah, Kauan 12/11/15 (W.)


sequestered keep

Sequestered Keep – Ageless Winter Silence (Independent) [Dungeon Synth]
Stream

Sequestered Keep has gotten a lot of love here at the Toilet, and for good reason. It has provided the soundtrack for many a valiant quest and dungeon delve, but I find Ageless Winter Silence evoking a very different feeling for me: solace. Winter has long been my favorite season for a variety of reasons, and the peaceful ambiance presented here brings forth a flood of images and memories. These are the sounds of the cold stillness beneath a starry sky; of faint moonlight filtered through a gentle snowfall; of the winter that I long for. 12/7/15 (Spear)

  • Dubs

    Spear, I appreciate you naming the picture file hurr draugerrrrr.

  • tigeraid

    Well now how the fuck am I supposed to make a top 10 list before I read this list? I forgot to include Sharky Sharky!

  • Zero3iete is one of the most confusing band names ever.

    It’s speak as Cero Siete or Cero Tres Siete? And why did they used Z?

    So many questions!

  • Maik Beninton™

    Sharky Sharky is poopy poopy.
    Should be labeled Discovery Kids Metal though.

    • SHARKY SHARKY LIFE FOREVER

    • It is like the Finnish dinosaur metal band?

      • I believe sharky sharky came first?

        • According to Metal Archives, Hevisaurus was formed on 2009 and Sharky Sharky on 2013. Sharky Sharky was created by two musicians of the british power metal band Ascension.

          To be honest, this metal for kids flair is pretty fun. I wouldn’t mind to show some of these when I have kids 😛

          • nice, didn’t know that! I heard of Sharky Sharky first

          • Hevisaurus even had the collaboration of Jens Johansson in some albums.

          • Jens >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

          • Why heavy metal? Why not gentle narrative hip-hop or acoustic folk?
            All the people who were involved with this in the beginning are more or less heavy metal musicians. So we had no other choice. And hey, dinosaurs are cool but HEAVY METAL DINOSAURS!? You cannot beat that.

          • heavy metal sharks are cool but yeah, gotta agree, heavy metal dinosaurs >>>>>

      • Maik Beninton™

        Who?

  • I was going to help with this one too, but forgot about it.

    It’s a Swedish melodic black metal one-woman project. It’s cool:

    https://i-voidhangerrecords.bandcamp.com/album/the-female-of-the-species

    • Dubs

      This album is pretty cool. I got the promo and will mini-review.

    • Dubs

      That was… more interesting than I expected it to be.

      • love you too W

        • Dubs

          No you don’t. You just love the idea of me.

    • Hey, this is cool! It even have some melodies.

    • 365ChaosRiddenDays

      Fenriz brought me to this band while I was listening to his podcast, yes, this is very good!

  • KJM, Shake Zula

    I only listen to Post-wat Funeral Doom now.

    • 100% PURE BLACKBEARD

      Awesome

      Did you like this years Ahab, kj?

      • KJM, Shake Zula

        Actually I haven’t heard it.

      • KJM, Shake Zula

        Found it.

        • 100% PURE BLACKBEARD

          Lemme know what you think, bear god wasnt impressed. Im a long time fan, and i still lub it

          • he rarely is tho

          • KJM, Shake Zula

            It’s decent, but I’m not a fan of the vocal style. It’s also more epic doomy than I usually like.

    • I read that as post-fat funeral doom ._.)

  • Guacamole Jim

    Ur Draugr is so fucken good. And new Sequestered Keep?? Damn!

    • Lacertilian

      #KeepKeep

  • Guacamole Jim

    Sharky Sharky is like if Dragonforce was slightly better.

    • CyberneticOrganism

      And sung by a Vine personality

    • die

    • It feels like it should be the intro of a cartoon.

    • Maik Beninton™

      Pfft, yeah right.

    • the key change at 2:50… anytime i hear that in a song, i’m fucking out

  • Guppusmaximus

    Man, if only I had stumbled upon the children entertainment industry when I was a *cough,cough* musician. Talk about being set.

  • YourLogicIsFlushed

    Almost got a little upset that you left Baroness off because I was super excited to finally listen to the whole thing on Friday, then realized this Friday is only the 11th. I am a sad panda.

    • Dubs

      Two comments in as many days!

      • YourLogicIsFlushed

        I have always been here, just spent a few months in the shadows. Bane is a cool dude to chill with.

  • Maik Beninton™

    Btw I’m having trouble listening on bandcamp, it’s probably my internet connection, but it has trouble loading the songs to the point where skips it and starts the next one.

  • KJM, Shake Zula

    SHARKY SHARKY HAPPY TIME NUMBER ONE!

    • EsusMoose

      THAT SONG IS STUCK IN MY HEAD AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

  • ┼yree

    Jury Selection/Jury Duty = The Void

    • Stanley

      Just got my letter yesterday. They want me in on Jan 4th, but I’ll be traveling so I’ll have to request a deferral.

    • i was a jury member for a case involving eight infractions including first degree murder. it ruled.

      • ┼yree

        One of the cases involved a pedophile (Luckily I didn’t get selected for that trial). He raped his step daughter for 4 years starting when she was 9. Fucked up shit.

        • Dubs

          Are you allowed to talk about it? I’ve never had to do jury duty, so I don’t know the rules.

          • ┼yree

            It was in the media.

          • Dubs

            Gotcha

          • more beer

            After the trial you can. Just not during.

          • Dubs

            I’ve been able to use school as a “get-out-of-jury-duty” card twice, but alas, I cannot pull that trick again.

          • ┼yree

            Yeah, a few people got called up 3 times for cases and got out of each because they had something going on during those trial dates. I’m surprised the judge didn’t call them out on that. If I did that I would have gotten my ass handed to me.

          • more beer

            I have never been summoned. Don’t know why. But I would use my business as an excuse. Being a sole proprietor. If I don’t work I can’t pay the bills.

          • Stanley

            In California, you have to prove “hardship”. They ask you how much you earn each month and THEY will decide if you can pay the bills or not.

          • yeah, during my selection case a guy said the same thing. the judge certainly let him have it. of course if i was the judge and it was @more_beer:disqus i’d be like “bro!”

          • more beer

            I’m not in California. I have no employees and my wage varies from month to month. Plus I get paid by the job so I have to do these jobs to survive. I think I would be let go.

          • Stanley

            It’s possible.

          • more beer

            The prosecutors probably wouldn’t want me on a trial anyway. As my views towards the criminal injustice system. Are not in line with theirs at all.

          • i’m sure that factors into the selection process. i.e. even if the judge makes you stay in the room, the selection bro will be like “naw thanks”

          • more beer

            Exactly I don’t trust the cops nor believe most things they say. Any trial where their testimony is a major part of the case, they wouldn’t want me on.

          • Gimme Kawaii Toast, Honey Buns

            Lol, you could always do like that one scene from Curb Your Enthusiasm to get out of it!

            https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=94zkBGm1IoU

          • Gimme Kawaii Toast, Honey Buns

            Not from your job. It’s illegal for them to fire you for jury duty. They expressly state that summons papers. That’s federal law, so it’s not a state to state thing.

        • more beer

          I wouldn’t want to have sit on that jury. I would want to kill that guy.

          • Gimme Kawaii Toast, Honey Buns

            Yep, more than sure the bailiff has his hands full with cases involving that. Hopefully the motherfucker got tossed into general pop, and got his neck snapped in the chow line.

            https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=45V6db9CKcc

        • Stanley

          When I last got called in March 2014, it was a child abuse case. The judge gave an overview speech BEFORE selection to let people know what it was all about.

          • ┼yree

            A lot of people had a issues with being involved with the case. They must of called 50 different people until they had the official 30.

          • Stanley

            Yep, lots of people left after the overview. I assume that you haven’t been selected for anything thus far. Do you have to phone in every evening to see if you have to appear the following day (like here in Cali).

          • ┼yree

            I got selected for only one. It was the mildest case out of them all. A road rage assault case. It’s planned for only one day.

        • feels good to be doing one’s civic duty. until it’s a case about running a red light or something

          • ┼yree

            The case I got picked for was a road rage case. Pretty simple… Shouldn’t go on for more then a half a day.

      • I always wanted to be a jury member.

        But, then I remember I live in Venezuela and I don’t want to get killed by a malandro.

      • Gimme Kawaii Toast, Honey Buns

        I got selected for jury duty, but didn’t have to do anything for trial though. I just waited in a nice lobby, ate donuts, drank coffee and listened to my headphones until dismissed, then taking a nice, nearly 2 hour trip back into the city. And ended up spending all little check I got for my trouble on some Seagram’s gin.

        • sounds like a great god damned day!

          • Gimme Kawaii Toast, Honey Buns

            For the most part. Still had a long ass trip to and from, and missed out on some prime waitering money on a busy day since I had to request off.

  • Ur Draugr>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

  • ┼yree

    Hmm, I’m curious about the new Fórn. That artwork is sick. I do really enjoy their dark approach to doom/sludge.

    • Dubs

      It’s heavy heavy heavy.

      • ┼yree

        Good! About to listen to it in a bit.

      • ┼yree

        This first track is giving me chills.

        • 100% PURE BLACKBEARD

          Im going to check when i get home

          • ┼yree

            It’s pretty damn good so far.

        • Dubs

          Eggcellent.

          • ┼yree

            Really great stuff! I felt so uneasy while listening to this, lots and lots of dread.

    • ┼yree

      Fuck, sooo much atmosphere.

  • Boss the Ross

    I cant listen right now, KJM how’s the Wo Fat split?

  • Boss the Ross

    I listened to the Sequestered Keep this morning, it was good.

    • 100% PURE BLACKBEARD

      Keep it sexuestered, ross

      • Lacertilian

        #KeepKeep.

  • Gimme Kawaii Toast, Honey Buns

    Might have to check out that Fimbolvinter in a few, given Russia’s winning streak for black and death metal lately (Abominable Putridity, Back Door To Asylum, Forest Stream). And you already know I’m tossing the new Galneryus in my basket (gah, that artwork though!)

  • Waynecro

    Pyuria is pretty groovy.

  • Gimme Kawaii Toast, Honey Buns

    New Galneryus video got released earlier today. Prepare for ludicrous widdly diddlies!
