This Toilet Tuesday (5/23/17)


Welcome once more to This Toilet Tuesday! Now that we’ve all listened to all the music released up to this point, we’re ready for another hundred new albums that we all definitely have time for. Lacertilian, Pagliacci is Kvlt, BertBanana, and DumpsterLung have all picked fairly unique albums this week, and are all worth a listen in their own right. Check those out, then listen to everything on the list below.

Desekryptor – Chasm Of Rot (Blood Harvest Records) (Death Metal)

Listen to “Chasm Of Rot”

Sure, Suffering Hour comes out this week and many of you will be champing at the bit to finally get your hands on it and hear it in full. And rightly so, In Passing Ascension is going to blow you away. However, we’ve already covered it fairly extensively here so I want to remind you all that Blood Harvest have another release out this week, and surprise surprise…it rips! Desekryptor’s Chasm Of Rot is frenetic death metal so jammed to the hilt with aural offal you’ll be stained from head to toe for weeks to come. Which in death metal terms means it’s fucking great! The riffs come in relentless waves of either sinister tritone-laced tremolo runs or pulverising percussive punishment. If you’re a fan of bands such as Triumvir Foul, Tomb Mold, Vacivus, or you’re just savvy enough to realise by now that Blood Harvest never disappoint, then do yourself a favour and give Chasm Of Rot a try. 5/26/17 (Lacertilian)

Below the Sun – Alien World (Temple of Torturous) [Post-Metal/Doom]
Listen to “In Memories”

A few things on the Bandcamp page caught my eye right away when checking this track out: the album is a concept album based on the novel Solaris by Stanislaw Lem, the music explores pelagic themes (always a plus for me), and that it was written and recorded in Siberia. If you’re going to write a post-metal/doom album, where better than Siberia? The track available for streaming is the album’s closer “In Memories,” and right out of the gate it has the heft and weight of the ocean in the rhythm, but also ephemeral melodies that come and go like fleeting whitecaps. The vocals are (mostly) clean and haunting and seemingly float upon the sea of music. It’s a great track to listen to if you want to set your mind adrift. 5/26/17 (Pagliacci is Kvlt)

Funeral Art – Demo (Clandestine Records) [lolbuttz]

While we can agree to disagree about whether this is mind blowingly awesome (it’s not) or strictly for the lulz (it is) that’s not the point. I’m here to tell you all music serves a purpose. On initial listen… I completely wrote this off. I laughed in fact, especially at the dying old lady saying shit on track 3. On the second playthrough, during the 3 minutes of silence in the first track, I sat in my chair and contemplated all the mistakes I made that brought me to this very moment. Then I saw on the side, 6£ for a pro dubbed LE cassette. This is a must buy. This is essential to your collection. There’s going to come a moment in your life, where you’re going to be hosting a date or a party with a bunch of normies and they are going to look at your music collection and say, “Oh you listen to Oranssi Pazuzu too? Yeah, they really rocked it at Coachella this summer,” or “Man, Krallice really hit their stride with Ygg Huur.” Your world is going to spin out of control. Your elitist cred will be questioned. It will be in that moment where you grab this cassette, play it with a shit eating grin on your face and say to them, “This is the future of Black Metal. This is the level I’m at,” and as the wolves cry with the thunder crackling out your speakers, and they walk out the door (and possibly your life) you can say, “I showed them.” You’re goddamn right you did.

Wędrowcy~Tułacze~Zbiegi – Korpus Czechosłowacki (Independent) [Snazzy Experimental/Black Metal]

As someone possessing neither fluency nor an even remotely functional command of any language other than my native, boring English tongue, I can’t even imagine how one is supposed to pronounce “Wędrowcy~Tułacze~Zbiegi,” and that’s a pretty appropriate metaphor for the way I feel about this release. I’m utterly perplexed, but in the most wonderful way. This band is tagged as experimental, black metal, and post-punk on their Bandcamp page, but nothing really feels adequate in describing their overall sound. The EP begins with a lone, bluesy guitar riff quickly joined by keyboards and vocals that all combine into what I can only imagine it might sound like if Emptiness covered The Doors. What about black metal, though? Well, the third track begins with baritone a capella humming before launching into a bizarrely twangy bit of guitar that feels as if it began its life as a regular, mid-paced black metal riff before unwittingly traveling to a realm of unspeakable cosmic horror, only to return as something else entirely. In short, just get this album with me, then get ready to get weird. FFO: Emptiness, The Vision Bleak, Sisters of Mercy 5/22/17 (DumpsterLung)
