This Toilet Tuesday (3/24/15)

It’s only 10:30 and this party has already dragged on too long. Unfortunately for you, you can’t escape it; you’re hosting it. Hell, you were even looking forward to it until your stomach started churning an hour ago. You thought that chicken looked under-cooked, but you ate it anyway and now here you are. Your attempt to distance yourself from the crowd has failed, too; though it at first felt good on your fevered skin, the chill of the early spring evening has become too much. You step back in from the balcony and head for your bed, hoping that a little nap will be enough to revitalize you.Thirty minutes later, you bolt upright. A tremendous, stabbing pain has grown in your bowels, your abdomen swollen slightly with the pressure of an impending tsunami of bodily waste. Hunched over and clutching your stomach, you make your way to the bathroom. To your dismay, a long line has formed before it. You groan and step back out to the balcony. I will not shit myself in front of my friends, you desperately command yourself. The minutes drag for what seems like hours. You grip the railing tightly as you feel your insides clench. Maybe I could go over the side? No, too risky. You strengthen your resolve and brace for the wait. Though your anus is steel, your body is a stronger rebel than you imagined; your stomach suddenly turns over and you retch over the railing. You heave only once, spewing for what seems like an impossibly long time. You have become a vile fountain, a single long, steady stream of vomit showering your neighbor’s hedges. As the last drop of bile exits your body and falls into your friend’s uncovered convertible in your driveway, you collapse on the floor. Hey, you think to yourself as sleep begins to wash over you. I don’t have to poop anymore!

This is the silver lining in a universe of shit. This is Toilet Tuesday.


FulgoraStratagem

Fulgora – Stratagem (Housecore) [Deathgrind]
Stream

The incestuous, mutant lovechild of Agoraphobic Nosebleed, Pig Destroyer, and Misery Index release their debut album, Strategem, today and boy is it a tasty freight train of riffs. Walking a fine line between grindcore and death metal, it features just the right combination of bouncy groove and absolute chaos that makes these songs the most pleasant beating you’ll ever experience. Even more so than getting beaten with socks filled with delightful smelling soaps. Look, we can sit here using dumb metaphors all day, or you can hit play and we can grind and enjoy life. (Leif Bearikson)

Loch Vostok – From These Waters (ViciSolum Productions) [Melodeath]
Listen to “Like Poison to the Stars,” “Sentiment”

A cursory listen of “Like Poison to the Stars” would give one the impression that Swedish melodeath maestros Loch Vostok like Arsis almost as much as I do (almost); everything from the guitar tone to the spiteful whirlwind of riffs to the unrelenting drumming bears a strong resemblance to the latter. The chorus takes a completely different turn, though, with its big chords and soaring clean vocals. “Sentiment” is a bleak and weary keyboard-driven ballad that proves the band is entirely their own entity. I look forward to how the band’s aggressive side meshes with their contemplative, progressive sound when the full album drops this Friday. (Spear)

Judicator – At the Expense of Humanity (Independent) [Power Metal]
Stream

Grab your steel and mount your robot unicorn. We’re about to charge into heated battle with Judicator! At the Expense of Humanity is one of the most hotly anticipated power metal releases of 2015, and for good reason. While many PM bands are bogged down with overbearing cheesiness and stale songwriting, Judicator brings a welcome freshness to the genre by injecting every riff and every vocal harmony with emotional heft. This is PM that doesn’t just gallop blindly towards the sunrise; instead, it opens your eyes to the rigors of war and leaves you exhausted and satisfied after a hard-fought victory. FFO: Hammerfall, Cellador, Noble Beast (W.)


regression

Theories – Regression (Metal Blade) [Deathgrind]
Stream

Deathgrind fans, prepare your buns for a battering, because this debut album by Seattle upstarts Theories is kicking the crap out of everything in its way. It’s pretty amazing to see deathgrind of this quality in a debut album, but Regression smashes and bashes like a bloodstained wrecking ball, and there’s nowhere to hide. Tasteful breakdowns, soulful leads, and oceanic grooves accentuating the restless blasts all make this one release you shouldn’t miss. Stream it in full over at Invisible Oranges. FFO: Weekend Nachos, Murder Construct, 908 (W.)


MorDagor

Mor Dagor – Redeemer (Osmose Productions) [Blackened Death]
Listen to “Redeemer,” “Message of Salvation”

Me and Mor Dagor go back all the way to last autumn. They were playing awfully generic Norsecore, although they were never bad at it. It is so hard to excel in something so overdone and I wouldn’t ever have bothered with Mor Dagor again if I hadn’t recognized their name. I’m glad I did. Mor Dagor is still highly unoriginal and uninventive black metal but after injecting a little death metal into their veins it seems they accidentally upped their game as well. Unfortunately the first of these two songs continues on the over-trodden path, but “Message of Salvation” picks up after the one-minute mark and manages to leave my needs for Very Basic Blackish Metal™ satisfied.

Barren Earth – On Lonely Towers (Century Media) [Progressive Death Metal]
Listen to “On Lonely Towers”

I know W. already did a mini-review for this particular album, but I’d like to remind you of it. Peaceful and unruffled death metal with a healthy dose of prog, doom and Opeth-y riffs, and the new vocalist Aldara’s heartfelt cleans and ripping growls. This album is at it’s best on it’s moody and beautiful moments, but delivers whenever it is required to rip as well. Thanks to Oppu Laine, I believe, Barren Earth delivers music that might well be an alternative to Amorphis. (Karhu)


Unrest-GrindcoreLarge

Unrest – Grindcore (Unspeakable Axe) [Figure it out, genius]
Listen to “Anything to Shock”

While I am a grindcore noob, as I have only been diggin’ the genre for a half year or so, I can say with certainty that Unrest’s debut fucking rips and is the good shit. Like you know when you go to the bar and you’re like give me the good stuff and they give you some decent drink and you’re like, “Nah, I mean the GOOD stuff.” That’s Unrest for ya, the really fucking good stuff. GRIND (Jack Bauer)

  • Edward/Breegrodamus

    I checked out a track from True Enemy yesterday, thought it sounded pretty good. Cool mix of growls and hardcore shouts.

    • Trve Enemy

    • Scrimm

      I finally got that Black Twilight Circle we spoke about the other day. Really cool stuff for the most part.

      • Edward/Breegrodamus

        That big ass compilation that you and Howard Dean were talking about? I want to hear that one. I haven’t even looked to see if I could pick it up digitally or find some other way to listen to it…

        • Scrimm

          Yeah Tliltic Tlapoyauk. Haven’t seen it digitally anywhere, I got the 2cd version but I think you can find most of the tracks now on youtube, though that’s not the optimal way to check stuff out especially if it already has a lo fi sound. I’ve only got through the whole thing once, but so far there is only one track I found comepletely flushworthy.

          • dat Volahn

          • Scrimm

            Too early for me to pick favorites but that is one of the better tracks.

          • Reichsmarschall Dean von Steel

            I’ve been incredibly impressed with this comp. I dig pretty much all the tracks/bands to some degree, though my favorite tracks were the ones from Kuxan Suum, Cempopoloah, The Haunting Presence, Muknal, and Arizmenda. I even liked the Axeman closer that was much maligned by others. It’s kinda cheesy, sure, but has the charm of newer Darkthrone circa The Underground Resistance.

          • Scrimm

            I like all those tracks too. The only one I didn’t like at all was the one from Shataan and that was because of the vocals. Gouing through it again right now.

          • Reichsmarschall Dean von Steel

            That Shataan one was definitely a bit mesh, I agree. I think it grew on me a little, but it’s certainly one of the weaker ones.

          • Scrimm

            I like the music on it. The thing as a whole is an impressive accomplishement.

  • Scrimm

    Ah another tuesday another release from Hells Headbangers that isn’t out when it’s supposed to be.

    • What is their deal??

      • Scrimm

        No idea, but I’d be upset like several people of it was stuff I was really looking forward too. Not helping they don’t seem to respond to people.

        • Tyree

          That’s what is pissing me off the most. Fucking respond assholes.

          • Scrimm

            That’s the quickest way to lose my business. I understand stuff happens, but they could let people know.

          • Tyree

            Shame, because I really like that label.

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            The dude who runs it may be tied up with Hells Headbash 2, not that that should be any excuse, though.

          • Tyree

            Yeah understandable, shit gets in the way. But, if you say you are going to release something (Especially a digital download) you should probably release it. Just annoying.

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            Totally true.

          • Tyree

            By the way, are you going to Hells Headbash 2?

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            I’m going to try. Tickets go on sale for the three day early April. I might just do individual depending on who’s playing when, etc. And those go on sale in June. If the three day is cheap enough, I’ll just do that. Too many unknowns still.

          • Tyree

            I’d like to go as well, plus I have some family that lives near by there. I just invested too much money into MDF.

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            Yeah, I’m hoping this will be cheaper. But who knows.

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            It looks like all the Gouge shit is in stock.

            https://shop-hellsheadbangers.com/search.asp

          • Tyree

            Sick! I’ll have to pick this up soon. Nasty stuff.

          • Pagliacci is Kvlt O)))

            Confucius say: “asshole that does not respond to toilet, is full of shit.”

          • Reichsmarschall Dean von Steel

            HH responded to me the other day when I asked if they had plans to release that new Arizmenda on CD (since they’re releasing the LP) and they actually responded. “NOT AT THIS TIME NO.”

          • Tyree

            Seems a bit aggressive. Although my messages to them have not been very polite.

      • Celtic Frosty

        What really concerns me is that the new Acid With EP that comes out next month is on HH. What if they’re still flaky? What will we do? WHAT WILL BECOME OF US?

  • Tyree

    Sick! Gouge is out. Want to buy that album but Hell’s Headbangers have been fucking dicks lately on their Bandcamp page. Still no Deathhammer.

    • Edward/Breegrodamus

      I got the promo for that for here. Spoiler: it’s good.

      • Tyree

        I remember you writing about them a while back. Great sounding stuff, very Repulsion sounding.

    • Scrimm

      Still showing up as a preorder for me.

      • Tyree

        I have a couple like that too. Unprofessional to say the least.

        • Edward/Breegrodamus

          You guys will be happy to know then that my Yellow Eyes hoodie arrived yesterday. I’ll get a fashionable male selfie for the crew later, lol

          • Tyree

            Killer. Can’t really get into their material though. I get a bit bored while listening to them. I remember Kim Kelly always praising them, but I could not grasp it.

          • Edward/Breegrodamus

            Yeah our pal Grim Kim is a fan – I remember from a couple years ago. Have you checked out their two newest albums The Desert Mourns and Stillicide? I like all their stuff but I find those two to easily be their best stuff.

          • Tyree

            Nah, I’ll have to revisit them I guess here.

          • Edward/Breegrodamus

            I’m about to put on Tentacles of Whorror cause I don’t have anywhere to be for awhile, lol

          • Scrimm

            I also got the cd box version of Scar Sighted. Having a record store that takes all kinds of different stuff in trade is saving my ass right now.

          • Dr. Dubz

            How are things looking on the job front?

          • Scrimm

            Well the interview my friend said he could get me for sure doesn’t seem to be going anywhere. I was kinda pulling back on how much I was looking because that seemed like a pretty sure thing, but I’m going to get back on it today. I just can’t understand why I’m not getting responses even from the crappy places I’ve applied. Getting pretty discouraged again. Don’t know what I’m doing wrong. I’ve got a spotless work record.

          • Dr. Dubz

            That is a strange. And sorry about the interview. We’re still rooting for you.

          • Scrimm

            Thanks. Apparently the manager at the location I applied for at said she needed people too when he contacted her about me, but was going on vacation. But he said she was back last Tuesday, and still nothing. I don’t know. Somethings got to happen soon.

          • Dr. Dubz

            Do you think you could contact her directly rather than going through a middle man?

          • Scrimm

            I may try at this point but he seemed to think he could at least guarantee the interview so I didn’t want to screw with it at first sionce he was doing me a pretty big favor. Don’t know if it will do any good if he couldn’t make it happen since he’s above all those managers. Maybe Ill here something in the next couple days, if not I’ll try to go in there myself.

          • Good vibes, Scrimmmmmm!!!

          • Scrimm

            Thank you sir!

          • Edward/Breegrodamus

            I had a similar experience after I graduated from college in March of 2013. Applied for I shit you not like 70 – 75 jobs and only got one interview on the phone for a job I did not get. I graduated from college with the highest honors. I do have some old old shit on my record but I doubt most of the places I applied background checked me, no way they check everyone cause time and money. I’m going to get on a serious job hunt myself after April 10th.

            Good luck on your end Scrimm!

          • Scrimm

            Thanks man. It’s crazy, I’m probably at 30-40 places so far and ONE call for an interview that they said went so well and then I went in there a couple weeks later and they hired some teenage girl who was rude as all hell. I even sucked it up and applied at Dominos cause its right next door to me but nothing. I’m good enough to serve the country but not good enough to make a damn pizza or sell cd’s?? Good luck to you too man, I know it’s not easy.

          • Edward/Breegrodamus

            You’ll find something good. I will too.

            My older brother just started delivering pizzas at Dominoes because he is in school, on busy nights it sounds like he does Ok. He said he has delivered pizzas to some pretty sketchy spots already, lol

          • Scrimm

            I believe it. I’ve heard some stories from a few friends who have done it.

          • Edward/Breegrodamus

            I’m trying to get a job working at an inpatient treatment center or with mentally ill people. Pay would be less than the job I just lost (almost guaranteed) but I could get benefits for the first time, well, pretty much ever. Lol.

          • Scrimm

            The benefits were most of the reason I suffered at my old job as long as I did.

          • Chicken Tender Gulag O Love

            Yep, it’s definitely a risky job. A couple of the guys at my old job ended up getting mugged, and beaten pretty badly while out on a run. It’s about as risky as being a cab driver.

          • *undiscourages Scrimm
            you’ve included us all in your references, right?

          • Scrimm

            Of course.

          • Chicken Tender Gulag O Love
          • Edward/Breegrodamus

            Scar Sighted is so good. I keep listening to it and hearing new things I like cause it’s long.

          • Scrimm

            Yeah It’s pretty deep.

          • Celtic Frosty

            I also bought one of these hoodies, but I ordered a large (as I always do), and it was too small for me. By the time it arrived he was sold out of XL’s, so I just had to return it. Now I’m sad all day.

          • Scrimm

            I always go an extra size bigger on hoodies after getting burned a couple times. There’s a Demilich one I want so bad right now, even though hoodie weather lasts like 3 days a year here in AZ.

          • Dr. Dubz

            Yah man, I always go at least large on hoodies, despite wearing a small or medium in t-shirts.

          • Scrimm

            I like them better a little big anyways. I’m back up to XL shirts now 🙁

          • Dr. Dubz

            That ain’t no thang.

          • Scrimm

            Only sucks cause now most of my shirts barely fit.

          • Tyree

            Way to make us all feel fat.

          • Dr. Dubz

            I’ve seen pictures of you. You certainly aren’t fat. I have chicken legs.

          • Scrimm

            He may not be but I’m sure getting there.

          • Tyree

            Same. Working on cultivating mass.

          • Scrimm

            Yep. All in the middle region too.

          • Dr. Dubz

            Do you bring a trash bag of burritos around with you?

          • Tyree
          • Chicken Tender Gulag O Love
          • Chicken Tender Gulag O Love

            I’m 5’6 and 135, so finding shirts that don’t look like I’m wearing a moo moo are hard to find.

          • Dr. Dubz

            I imagine!

          • How tall are you, Doctor? I don’t know that I’ve ever met a grown person who wears a small. A large is like a tank top on me.

          • Dr. Dubz

            Essentially 6′. I weigh in at about 150. It really depends on the manufacturer whether a small or medium fits better, but because I’m thin, I have to be careful to not look like I’m wearing a tent.

          • Huh, if I wear anything under XL I might as well just go out wearing a bra.

          • Scrimm

            Sexy

          • Nefarious.

          • Dude.

          • worst feeling ever. I have to use medium because I’m tall, but I’m skinny, so the small is good, but the arms are always tiny 🙁

          • Scrimm

            Just do some curls, the small sleeves will make your muscles look bigger.

          • Edward/Breegrodamus

            Ah, bummer. I got a large too, wearing it out today.

          • Edward/Breegrodamus

            Update: this hoodie fits but I don’t think I will put it in a dryer for awhile.

          • Celtic Frosty

            Glad yours worked out, sort of. Mine was way too short. Nobody needs to see my belly for any reason.

        • Chicken Tender Gulag O Love

          Did they hire Blake Judd or something?

    • RJA

      They have been a bit of a mess lately. I received my vinyl copy last week.

  • EsusMoose

    Judicator rips, love the main riff of coping mechanism

  • Tyree

    So, Fulgora sounds just like Book Burner. Lame.

    • book burner did very little for me. i am, however, digging the shitpiss out of Fulgora

    • Dr. Dubz

      I liked Book Burner, but it wasn’t nearly as good as some of their old stuff. It sounded very thin to me. Like it was lacking a spark or something.

      • Tyree

        I just find it crazy that this band sounds exactly like Pig Destroyer on Book Burner. Identical!

        • Dr. Dubz

          Haven’t listened yet, but I guess the Jarvis cross-pollination would do that.

        • Brouroboris

          Gotta disagree there. Book Burner is all about the flow of the album as a whole for me, plus different production. sure there’s similarities in sound but the overall effect is very different.

          • Tyree

            Eh, enjoy it. I’m just going to pass on that one.

      • I dug Book Burner as well. I just noticed that the drummer on previous records kind of had his own style and the new guy is very machine like. I think the next record will be better since everyone’s a little bit more familiar with each other.

        • Dr. Dubz

          Hopefully so!

  • Shrimp in a Pizza Box

    Digging Disgrace and Theories, will probably check out Judicator when no one else is around so that they don’t realize im a pathetic nerd that listens to Power Metal.

  • Celtic Frosty

    The new Lightning Bolt album “Fantasy Empire” came out today as well.

    • Edward/Breegrodamus

      I played a track from that yesterday. I was totally unfamiliar with them. It sounded pretty interesting to say the least.

      • Celtic Frosty

        Yeah, I’m a fan. Been looking forward to the release for a while.

  • Theories is sounding good to these ears. I’ll have to revisit Fulgora, the stuff they teased didn’t grab me. Listened to Unrest last night. I see them being billed as Nasum worship but not picking that up.

  • Brouroboris

    God Mother seems some sick shit son.

  • Witch of the Waste sounds like Calculating Infinity-era DEP. This is a good thing.

  • DAT PROMO PHOTO

    • They’re somehow MORE punchable than U2.

      • Dr. Dubz

        If I had just seen the photo without a band name, I would have thought they were Akercocke.

        • Chicken Tender Gulag O Love

          Or a total lolbuttz version of A Forest Of Stars.

    • Stanley

      Which one?

      • Hit refresh. I had to screencap it.

        • Stanley

          You think that’s bad. This is Judicator’s off their bandcamp page. Do people still do that “James Bond make a gun shape out of your fingers and thumbs” thing. I guess so.

          • Hahaha, this seems self-aware at least. The Poodles seem to legit think those goatees are fashionable.

          • i would drink beer and play Settlers of Catan with those bros.

          • Aunt Judy

            Nope, this photo isn’t self aware or fun at all. We legitimately thought a Charlie’s Angels pose with finger guns was the perfect conceptual tie in to our album about our singer’s brother dying from cancer!

    • Chicken Tender Gulag O Love

      I see someone (the guy second to the right) who definitely raises his pinky when he drinks! The guy next to him looks like a steampunk version of The Nightman (from ‘It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia’).

  • Here I go!

    #LinkFirstPickOfThisToiletTuesday: Loch Vostok: they got good ideas in the guitars, but the snare sounds weird and the cleans aren’t that good. There are some good changes. 6/10.

    #LinkSecongPickOfThisToiletTuesday Michael Schenker’s Temple of Rock: i’m not a huuuuge fan of that guy, only enjoyed some solo stuff (mostly the acoustic albums), but his tone is so good that I don’t care if he’s recycling his songs because that tone is badass, jajaja. Avoid if you don’t want to hear clichés.

    #LinkThirdPickOfThisToiletTuesday Pombagira: mix Yob, Pallbearer, Sleep and Electric Wizard with a more dronish approach.

    • The Beargod

      Link, that Pombagira IS THE WORST RECORD I HAVE HEARD IN A DECADE!!!!!

      • Sir Tapir the Based

        Is bad? I need to check this uut.

        • The Beargod

          Double album, one song that isn’t just poor droning death/doom. And that song is fifteen minutes long.

        • I don’t know if I can give you a strong bear-like opinion.

          I don’t listen too much drone. But I think that the appeal of the song they stream there is that they have a couple of changes and the vocals are chanting like.

          The ‘bestest’ advice I can give you is that you listen to it. Because this doom/drone stuff is very polarizing: hate it, dig it or love it.

      • woah!

        • The Beargod

          If you listen one or two songs a time it ain’t that bad. But if you do it like albums are supposed to be done…

          • Now you hit the spot.

            I’m not a drone listener. But there were some changes in tempo that I dug to make some variety.

            It would probably be like you said: listen one or two, and that’s ok.

          • Chicken Tender Gulag O Love

            I got sent a ton of drone CDs back when I was working for ChainDLK, and rarely got through more than one listen from them. I REALLY have to be in a certain mood to listen to it, which is very very rare.

      • well it is doom, so………….

        • The Beargod

          *applies water to the burnt are*

  • My wallet is gonna be mad at me after today

  • Sir Tapir the Based

    That Nightwish tag is spot on.

  • Guacamole Jim

    I just really want to share this with you all.

  • Chicken Tender Gulag O Love

    This Judicator song RULES!! 10/10 tendies!

    • it’s gud. i’m excited to get to that 10:45 song!

  • Maik Beninton

    Winter of the Apokalypse’s singer is too close to the mic.

  • Maik Beninton

    That Swedish U2 got me wondering if it is old U2, but it sounds like All That You Can’t Leave Behind era U2.

  • Stanley

    Of the three Thrash bands (Ancient Gods, Inculter and Pandemia) featured on this list, my favorite is Pandemia. Nothing new, but when you want your Thrash polished and catchy, this will serve. The riff after the solo is pretty tasty. Inculter is a little rawer but not that interesting. I’m not digging the Ancient Gods vocals.

  • J.R.

    I cannot wait to get to listening to these great new releases today, however I thought I would rush down hizzle and tell you fine people that someone somewhere was impressed by my ratty resume and I am setting up an interview for an intern position at a very well renowned company here in the Huntsville area!
    Woo Internships woo!
    No flush!

    • Guacamole Jim

      Byah!! No flush indeed! First wipe comes out clean!!!

    • bro-fist!!

    • Dr. Dubz

      Congrats!

    • Chicken Tender Gulag O Love

      Eat ’em up, tiger! 😉

    • LobsterAttack

      “To crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and hear the lamentations of their women.”

      Your ethic, it seems. Congrats!

      • J.R.

        Love that quote!

  • Dagon

    I had no idea the new Pombagira was dropping this week.

  • J.R.

    Barren Earth and this Judicator are pretty rad! Not a lot of the rest did too much for me, but I might have missed something.

    Apparently I also missed my neighbor’s album drop. Its uh…kind of a Flush in my book but one of you might like it. Kind of Biker-metal idk. http://amzn.to/1xv6tXR

    And while I’m plugging away music, my brother got some new midi controller and him and his hipster pals have been making some spacey hipster music, so they dropped a new track yesterday (maybe half a flush) so here is that for those interested. figured he’d appreciate seeing his “plays” spike from a visit to the Toilet. http://bit.ly/1OwtAGI

    • tell your brother he’s got a new fan

      • J.R.

        You should have seen his face man. TovH making dreams come true.
