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. FFO: Dungeon Synth, Black Metal, Harsh Noise 5/23/17 (BertBanana)

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)

    Ahvawe and Nightprowler. Fvckin true warriors.

  • Joaquin Stick

    Listing Alestorm as Smooth Jazz literally made me laugh my dick off. Am now Eunuch.

    Excited to give Below the Sun a spin. That description got me all hot and bothered, despite the Alestorm incident.

  • “Oh you listen to Oranssi Pazuzu too? Yeah, they really rocked it at Coachella this summer,”
    BertBanana wins the Internet today with that description.

    • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

      Oranssi Pazuzu definitely would fit Coachella’s boring line up.

      • you’re on a roll lately, frank!

      • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

        Oh yeah!? Well your mother seemed to like it!

        • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

          My mother specifically likes to put on some Oranssi Pazuzu when she has to take care of my 1-year-old little cousin and the kid’s having some trouble sleeping. Works like a charm.

    • The Tetrachord of Archytas

      Album Description of the Year contender

  • Howard Dean

    That Funeral Art demo was actually first released in 2007.

  • Señor Jefe El Rossover

    Too many things to check out this week. Emyn Muil is an instant purchase, hurry up Friday.

    • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

      Glad to finally have more Emyn Muil, they’ve been making me wait like they were Caladan Brood.
      Goddamn Ar-Pharazon and far Umbar are the tits.

      • Señor Jefe El Rossover

        I haven’t listened to it yet, waiting for bandcamp/physical, but I’m sure it will be totally worth it. Caladan Brood on the other hand… way too long.

        • Señor Jefe El Rossover

          BUT, I’m sure their next album will be amazing so I will wait patiently

          • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

            Lol, exact same time – as CB is also preparing new stuff.

  • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

    Thanks for reminding me the new Triumvir Foul is forgettable AF.

    • RJA

      Is it really? I bought it immediately but haven’t even listened yet.

  • that Desekryptor rules! oh and hahaha: it appears they only offer it via cassette. there’s no way i’m supporting that decision.


      • Howard Dean

        Hippies/hipsters haven’t moved on to cassettes just yet, but I’ve no doubt they’re getting there real quick. They’ve got to ride that hyped up vinyl train a bit longer before they fully embrace the wonderful counterculture and atavism of the cassette tape.


        • Axxon N.

          I can understand liking vinyl, but cassette is an inferior format in every conceivable way. Its only plus is being portable.

          • Señor Jefe El Rossover

            And cheap

          • Axxon N.

            Back in “the day” they were the same price.

          • if they had a digital option, i’d give them money. but “cassette only” is an idea that has no legs, and i hope the band realizes this.

          • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

            Bandcamp digital option won’t do?

          • thanks for the catch bear. i am not smart.

          • Hans
          • thanks for the catch Hans. i am dumb.

          • Krypt Defiler

            CD comp of both demos is coming via Cavernous Records in July.

          • i really appreciate the response! thanks

        • The Tetrachord of Archytas

          I’m pretty sure I saw burger records hock some retro wave tapes earlier this year. That’s pulling society dangerously close to the hipster apocalypse. Once Sierra Nevada merges with PBR, expect a shortage of American spirits, wide brim hats, and short sleeve Hawaiian shirts

  • Howard Dean

    Sculptures is apparently a black/death metal band from Hungary but that band name and logo are straight out of an Iowa trailer park c. 1998:

    • RJA

      Not just any trailer park? you had to throw Iowa under the bus huh? That’s the end of my “argument”.

      • Howard Dean

        ’cause Slipknot. PEOPLE = SHIT.

        • RJA

          I didn’t even think Slipknot but you’re right – apparently I’ve done a fantastic job of keeping them off my mind.

    • Brutalist_Receptacle

      My mom was reared in a Iowa trailer park. Many times.

  • Rick Chard

    Break out the French Onion soup and small sized mesh shirts, Danzig’s a comin’.

  • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

    Bands need to stop signing to Stormspell Ripoff.

    • Señor Jefe El Rossover


    • Spear

      Have they ever had a functioning web store?

      • Señor Jefe El Rossover


        • Spear

          No preorders. I like what I’ve heard of Claymorean, but I can’t buy it.

          Also, it looks like they pushed the release back. Bastards.

          • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

            They 100% fuck things up, even with CDbaby, it’s just so that they can say the albums were namely available. Honestly, they seem fixated on sabotaging all their bands except the ones Cedric’s on (which are always muchmuchmuch easier to find and get) than actually functioning as a label.

            Fucking Victory Records.

      • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

        Nope. Never.

      • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

        And they mostly also refuse to either sell or stream their releases through Bandcamp.

  • Pretty sure this flew underneath the radar a couple weeks back:

    FIN ftw!

    • RJA

      Yes indeed! Been waiting to see if that shows up for sale at any U.S. distros – looks like I may be purchasing digital copy though.

      • Amazon is the only digital source that I could find. GET ON IT

      • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

        I believe it either did appear on some US distro, or is about to, either or.

      • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

        Going to be up on iTunes/Bandcamp soon – the band did a short mailing campaign themselves for all US dwelling fans to get the album. Not sure if they’re going to do another, or if BC will include physical for cheaper US shipping.

    • Señor Jefe El Rossover

      Great album! Been spinning occasionally since release, got the CD from the band

    • Lacertilian

      Not to anyone who listens to the TovH podcast, which should be essentially everyone here.

      • Hey hey now, I heard it on the Podcast. I was implying that it was not yet reported on any version of This Toilet Tuesday.

  • RustyShackleford

    I’m a simple man. I see “Snazzy Experimental Black Metal” and I click. Yep.

    • atchdav

      Reminds me of a Polish Captain Beefheart.

  • I’ll take a look at new Solstafir and Sorrow Plagues.

  • Hans

    Rift – Superkillerfragilisticexpialithrashous

  • Hans

    Jordablod and Throane seem pleasantly deranged.
    Not 100% sure about Ravage yet, but sounds pretty cool so far.

  • Lone Biker of the Apocalypse

    “This is the future of Black Metal. This is the level I’m at…”

    I love this concept, and it intrigues me to think that, much like someone can be a fourth degree black-belt, that I could one day aspire to be a seventh-level black metal fan.

    My only question would be whether Level 1 is Deafhaven or Cradle of Filth 🙂

    • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

      With their frequent use of cleans, soft elements and accessible, even poppy songwriting – CoF pretty easily.

      • Lone Biker of the Apocalypse

        But do we define our levels only by musical standards, or is popularity, production values, experience, and image all factors in what level you’re at?

        • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

          Pretty sure neither of those bands have any trve kredit, so it’s hardly image. Both have fairly clean production, if something Deafheaven’s is rawer. CoF’s image is vampire’s and edgy teens.
          I like some of their stuff, but if there were levels of black metal fandom (and it was at least partially based on trueness, as I assume it would), they’d be at the bottom of it.

          • Howard Dean

            To be fair, if there were levels of black metal fandom, Deafheaven wouldn’t even be on it because they aren’t even black metal.

          • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

            If you completely discard their music and focus on aesthetic, which a lot of black metal dudes will do, but which is also bullshit, then yes.
            Pure black metal? In the traditional sense? No, but it’d be pretty dumb to walk around going how they don’t have bm influence, when their music is built around it.

          • Howard Dean

            I’ve just never heard it in their sound, I guess. A band like Wolves in the Throne Room has loads of black metal in their sound. Hell, the album Black Cascade is almost straightforward black metal at times. But Deafheaven has always just sounded more like moody post-something inspired by the worst (and least black metal parts) of blackgaze bands like Alcest. If there is any influence there, it’s been filtered through at least three degrees of homogenizing separation.

          • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

            Sure, they filter it through their own stuff, but I don’t honestly know how someone can grab New Bermuda and tell me with a straight face (s)he can’t hear the black metal. Though obviously this happens.

          • Axxon N.

            Of course the highest level would be that drunk Black Metal band everybody’s been posting the last 2 days.

          • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

            Nah, their recordings sound much too good, and they don’t even cassette.

  • Ravensire is NOT FOR WIMPS

  • anesthesiac


  • Celtic Frosty

    If you don’t blow the dust off your wallet for anything else this week, Suffering Hour is fucking essential.

  • Dumpster Lung

    I seriously have no idea how Devoted Art Propaganda (Wędrowcy~Tułacze~Zbiegi’s label) works. Anyone on here ever order from them? The 12″ LP of this EP isn’t even available yet, but the few releases they do have available aren’t able to be clicked on or anything. Do you just email them and then handle it through Paypal or something? I emailed the site, but no idea if they’ll get back to me or not, and I don’t want to miss out on this one if I can help it.
