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.
