This Toilet Tuesday (7/11/17)


It is once again Toilet Tuesday, and I’m hyped as all hell for some of these new tunes. The new Boris should be a no-brainer for basically everyone, Enfold Darkness and Execration have some excellent tech and prog death on the way, and Totengott bring out some solid Tom Warrior worship with their newest. We’ve also picked out a couple that you might have passed over otherwise, so be sure to check those out as well. All around good stuff this week.

Akatharsia – No Generation Without Corruption (Independent) [Black Metal]

A nice mix of lo-fi black metal and the ruddiest of punk, often stomping along at mid-tempo and employing an ungodly level of distortion and feedback noise. Two of the tracks vary the atmosphere a bit by getting quieter, which is helpful, but that 14-minute droner towards the end doesn’t work too well for me with this kind of sound. All in all though, it’s a decidedly pissed, misanthropic romp that rarely outstays its welcome. 7/10/17 (Hans)

Droid – Suspended Animation (Nightbreaker Productions) [Weird Thrash]
Listen to “Suspended Animation,” “Mission Drift”

I could have sworn somebody already mentioned this album somewhere on the site or in the group, but I couldn’t find it so I’m writing about it. Does the idea of Voivod with somewhat crossover-ish vocals sound appealing to you? Of course it does, and that’s exactly what you get with Droid. That first riff in “Suspended Animation” says more than I’ll ever be able to, so just hit play and get taken in by that funky blues-and-dissonance groove. 7/12/17 (Spear)

Execration – Return To The Void (Metal Blade Records) [Proggy-Death]
Listen to “Return to the Void,” “Eternal Recurrence”

Someone asked us all at the start of the year which band’s album we were most looking forward to in 2017. Before they’d finished the question I’d already blast frozen a puddle of drool, crudely carved out some ice letters and arranged them to spell EXECRATI. Yup, I forgot the O. Also didn’t have enough time for the N. Don’t be a fuck-up like me, make enough time for Execration. If you were someone who scored them as a result of our recent Find Your Very Own Norwegian Death Metal Band quiz, you know what kind of sprawling proggy sci-fi themed deathscapade you’re in for. If not, get your hands on 2014’s award winning Morbid Dimensions and ingest it through all the available holes in your head immediately. More detailed information about the album can be found in the interview some gibbering idiot conducted with Chris from the band late last year, covering topics regarding their influences, recording process, and everything else you need to know leading into Return To The Void.

    So that new Execration… awful lot of Satyricon in it.

    (Not that that’s a bad thing, I just felt it needed acknowledging).

    • did the old Execration have any Satyricon in it? (serious question, i don’t know anything about Satyricon)

      • Howard Dean

        One of the things you should know about Satyricon (debut album):

      • AndySynn

        Hmmm, not really. I’ve been working my way through their catalogue over the last couple of weeks, on and off, in preparation for making them this week’s Synn Report, and not really noticed it. Or, at least, not to such an extent.

        They’ve always sat in that weird space between Death and Black Metal where you wouldn’t call them “Blackened Death Metal”, but where there’s definitely influences from both in the mix. The new album has some straight up Satyr riffs in it though.

      • TheGranulatingDarkSatanicMilfs

        First three Satyricon albums are pretty much universally loved. After that, depends on your taste. I actually love their black n’ roll albums (Volcano and onwards) but plenty of people hate them. Rebel Extravaganza is some proto industrial black metal thing and is honestly my least favorite Satyricon album (even if it contains “Tied In Bronze Chains” which is probably the kvltest song ever written about getting dumped by a girl)

        • i checked a few songs HD recommended, and that is the kind of production that immediately prevents me from engaging in a band. now if the band likes to ward off plebs like me, then they’ve succeeded. i just can’t do it, it’s like a braindrill going into my ears.
          having said that, a kvlt song about being dumped sounds amazing. will definitely check that one! 😉

        • Depechemodeisgangsta

          “Metal Hammer journalist Robert Müller described Satyr as a “latently arrogant guy who, along the way, makes great music that constantly tests the borders of the genre”.
          I think that is a perfect description Of Satyricon Music, they just do whatever they want, i started listening to them with the Volcano Album and their sound has shifted into the whole Rock & Roll metal, and i also just enjoy that whole vibe.

        • GoatForest

          Their most recent was where they lost me. Hated that fucker.

    • TheGranulatingDarkSatanicMilfs

      Didn’t notice it before reading your comment, but it is true. The drumming is pretty Frost-y

    • Chris

      As a member of Execration, I find this an interesting observation. It is certainly not intentional. Always fun to see how others interpret your work.

  • RJA

    Pre-ordered the One Master, assume that will be showing up soon.

  • Señor Jefe El Rossover

    Was ready to give this week a pass, then I saw Boris and Dbeat.

    • Spear

      You might want to give Totengott a listen. I imagine you’d probably get some enjoyment out of that one.

      • Dumpster Lung

        You did mention Tom Warrior. Ought to be a no-brainer!

      • Óðinn

        I was listening to the Totengott a couple of days ago. It’s good. Sounds kinda like Celtic Frost.

        • GoatForest

          Which era?

          • Óðinn

            Kinda reminds me of Monotheist, Triptykon stuff.

          • GoatForest

            Alright. I’m very down, then.

      • Señor Jefe El Rossover

        Fiiiiiiiiine, geeeeeezz!!!

    • When Burning Ground comes out, try out a couple tracks. It’s not bad, they definitely love their 80s USPM

  • Dumpster Lung

    Droid, Execration, and Totengott all sound really promising!

    I gotta get back on writing stuff for this. So wrecked from this festival (plus another show last night). Literally have not been home except to feed my cat/ferrets and kinda crash on my couch since Thursday lol

  • Spear

    Just want to doubly emphasize that Droid is tearing me a new one. It’s like the exact midpoint of Vektor and Voivod, and the riffs are just so damn good.

    • Howard Dean

      I largely shrugged at a lot of today’s Toilet Tuesday output, but the description of Droid’s sound + that artwork (I’m a sucker for aesthetics) is drawing me in. Need to give it a listen when I get a chance. Looks like they got a CD for sale, too. Wa-wa-wee-wa!!

      • TheGranulatingDarkSatanicMilfs

        That artwork is fucking cool, indeed. It reminds me of the very first Mega Man games.

        I don’t know about you, but I’ve actually bought albums just because I like the album cover, without having heard a single note from the band (The Grave Alchemist by All Hell being the most recent example)

        • Howard Dean

          Probably like 1/4 of my CD collection are blind buys based solely on album art/aesthetics. Most of those are from the very early days when I was first getting into metal or from the period when I was a fan but bought my music mostly from record stores (pre-2010).

          However, I still buy albums based on album art only, especially if I’m in a record store (I’ve been known to order albums from distros without hearing a note, too–even though a stream was readily available). Sure, you definitely buy some duds this way, but you can’t replicate the feeling of buying an album blind and being floored by the music (harder to do in the modern era).

        • GoatForest

          I’ve done it too. Good artwork should never be underestimated.

    • Brutalist_Receptacle


    • GoatForest

      You know, I don’t think I’ve ever actually listened to Voivod. I would like to remedy this heresy. Where should I start?

      • Spear

        Hm, I’m not the most well-versed on their discography, but I started with Killing Technology.

        • GoatForest

          K. I guess I’ll imitate you.

  • Brutalist_Receptacle


  • Edguy is releasing a big comp this Friday, and it has an EP’s worth of new tracks. Some of them are pretty good if you dig this style of europower

  • Iron Tarkus

    Really liking Droid, that’s a nice find. I’ll probably pick up that and Execration.

  • Jeff Manteiga

    Loved Morbid Dimensions from Execration….I just wish the new album was going to be on Bandcamp 🙁
