This Toilet Tuesday (1/3/17)

Welcome to the first Toilet Tuesday of 2017! Last year was excellent for extreme metal, and I’m looking forward to what this year will bring in the music world. This week’s offerings are somewhat slim, but there’s some good jams to be had. W. and I have picked out a couple standouts; let us know if there are more that deserve to be heard!


noctu

Noctu – Illuminandi – Esoterica Illuminazione Ermetica (GSP) [Funeral Doom]
Stream

Funeral doom with a deeply reverent, almost religious fervor that manages to inspire both awe and terror? Sign me up! Sure, the riffs aren’t breaking any new ground out back in the cemetery, but that combo of plodding menace and blustering keys sure does the trick. Funeral heads will be sold after one grizzly psalm. FFO: Crypt of Silence, Hipoxia, My Dying Bride 1/1/17 (W.)


lizzard-wizzard

Lizzard Wizzard – Total War Power Bastard (Independent) [Sludge/Doom]
Stream

If I’m being completely honest here, I haven’t even listened to all of this yet. Just look at those song titles and tell me you don’t want to party with these dudes, though. It’s the best sort of stupid, and the music is pretty good; surprisingly so, in fact. It’s big and beefy, and I’m a fan of the punky vocal approach. Check this one out for some sweet slow jams. 1/1/17 (Spear)

    Oh cool, more shit I’ll forget to check out or get around to in a few years.

  • ≠ Voidscape Tyree ≠

    Any thing put out by Werewolf Records is worth checking out. Mordskog is new to me. Will check out in a bit.

    • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

      Not digging the artwork, but that shit happens.

      • ≠ Voidscape Tyree ≠

        Yeah, that’s some weak ass artwork. The material ain’t that great either. Not digging that production at all. Plus triggered snare. Gross.

        • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

          Yeah, it honestly wreaks of early ’00s sound, art, etc. Not cool, bro.

          • ≠ Voidscape Tyree ≠

            Pass for sure. But goddamn, that new White Death album is fucking incredible. New Goatmoon on the horizon too.

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            Need to check out White Death.

          • ≠ Voidscape Tyree ≠

            If you like Satanic Warmaster than you’ll like them. Some of the best black metal riffs of the year IMO.

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            Fuck yes.

          • Black Unbeard

            definitely in the SW vein. perhaps a little more melodic at times.

          • ≠ Voidscape Tyree ≠

            Totally agree.

          • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

            At least one White Death dude’s in GM too!

          • ≠ Voidscape Tyree ≠

            I might be doing a project with the singer for WD. That’s all I’ll say for now 😉

          • Black Unbeard

            exciting!

          • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

            (New GM may or may not be really good, a bit too short, and annoying in that the best tracks were the pre-release ones)

          • ≠ Voidscape Tyree ≠

            I’ve read that a lot of it sounds like CoB. I’m a bit concerned by this. The track on the split with D** S****** is great though! That will be on the album and that was seriously the best song of 2016 for me.

          • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

            I… did not think of CoB for one second. Unless people mean the rock style guitar solo towards the title tracks end.

          • ≠ Voidscape Tyree ≠

            Phew, glad to hear.

      • Óðinn

        Skull looks like a dead Appalachia hillbilly. Mountain Dew teeth. White ghetto.

    • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

      Checked the teaser tracks a while back. Hard pass.

  • KyleJMcBride
    • KyleJMcBride

      Can’t say I’m too nuts about the vocal approach though.

      • RustyShackleford

        Yeah I’m not as big a fan as I thought I would be.

      • Joaquin Stick

        It’s like stoner doom with Cult of Luna vocals. Track names are amazing though.

        • KyleJMcBride

          The track names are great, especially the one I posted.

        • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

          Dadfather cracked me up.

    • Maik Beninton™

    • Dumpster Lung

      I ended up liking them way more than I thought I would. I’m digging the vocals, too. Funny how without looking at the titles and lyrics, you wouldn’t even know they were so goofy. Kinda the way Rumpelstiltskin Grinder ended up (was more obvious in the beginning, but by the 3rd album was a lot less apparent).

  • RustyShackleford

    This is unusual for me, but I’m kind of digging that Kav release Chattering Medicine. Sounds like he recorded it inside a toilet but I’m digging the rawness, gives it a weird vibe. I like. Yep!

    • Brutalist_Receptacle

      sounds like he recorded it inside a toilet AND I’m digging it

      • Kav

        Glad you guys are enjoying it. Actually recorded in a storage unit in Florida during the summer. About 100+ the whole time we were tracking. Maybe what you’re hearing is the sweat.

        Thanks to ToH for posting as well. We worked hard on this one.

        • RustyShackleford

          It gives it a dank atmosphere. You guys are brutal!

  • RJA

    I feel like 2016 was fairly lackluster for metal – I’m pretty pessimistic though, so I could be wrong!

    • ≠ Voidscape Tyree ≠

      A lot of my favorite stuff from 2016 turned up at the very end. Death Worship, White Death, and Bestial Raids for example.

      • RJA

        I did enjoy that Bestial Raids, wasn’t that familiar with them before that to be honest. I haven’t heard a bit of the White Death yet, just waiting on the pre-order!

        • ≠ Voidscape Tyree ≠

          Ah, you did the vinyl. The CD is shipping now. Got mine last week. Been rockin’ it a lot.

    • Black Unbeard

      WRONG

    • KyleJMcBride

      For us Stoner Doom types, it was a pretty good year.

      • RJA

        Yea, I listen to almost no Stoner/Doom – guess it depends on perspective.

  • KyleJMcBride
    • Señor Jefe El Rosa

      You need to check out that Book of Wyrms

      • KyleJMcBride

        It’s nice, but it’s fairly typical.

        • Señor Jefe El Rosa

          Yeah, nothing crazy new. I like what I’m hearing from the vocals though.

  • Señor Jefe El Rosa

    Aw shit, Lacertilian started a band.

  • AeonsOvChaos

    Insulters and their D beat, poisonous and lethal riffs, solid release. I have some Black/Death to share, new demo by Serpet Ritual, blasphemy comes from Italy, pretty mean and punishing stuff: https://despisethesunrecords.bandcamp.com/album/nexvs-diaboli and some Raw Black Metal by Blood Tyrant: https://bloodtyrant.bandcamp.com/album/aristocracy-of-twilight

  • Joaquin Stick

    That Sabactâni would be pretty great if production was a little bit better.

  • AeonsOvChaos
  • Elegant Gazing Globe

    I’ll gladly listen to more music along the lines of the Powerklash all year long

  • Rob M

    That Burial Ground demo is pretty slick…reminds me a bit of Nocturnal
