This Toilet Tuesday (7/12/16)

Greetings, friends, and welcome to This Toilet Tuesday! I apologize for the somewhat short list this week; my hunting and gathering was stymied by moving into a new apartment and lack of internet connection. However, what it lacks in quantity it makes up in quality. There’s a lot to like here, so peruse that list and share anything I might have missed.


pestifere

Pestifere – Hope Misery Death (Eihwaz/Bindrune) [Black Metal]
Listen to “Don’t Let the Winter Take You”

It seems like there’s a constant influx of folky black metal these days, but it’s hard to complain when it’s this good. “Don’t Let the Winter Take You” cuts right to the chase with a rollicking mid-tempo tremolo riff (that shockingly isn’t accompanied by blastbeats), transitioning to melancholy chording and a brief acoustic interlude. It maintains a constant sense of urgency even through its bleak slower sections, masterfully conveying both the looming onset of winter and the song’s message of perseverance. Don’t skip out on Pestifere7/15/16 (Spear)


panzerbastard

PanzerBastard – Motörheathen (Patac Records) [Speed/Hardcore]
Stream

I can’t quite put my finger on it, but something gives me the impression that these guys might be Motörhead fans. Maybe it’s that familiar crunchy bass tone, or the sweet pentatonic shreddage. Maybe it’s that swagger that shows up in the more speed metal-oriented sections. It’s probably just me, though. Joking aside, Motörheathen is an awesome mixture of speed and hardcore that both pays homage to the band’s heroes and puts their own sound on display. 7/15/16 (Spear)


jugurtha

Jugurtha – Empyre (Independent) [Progressive Blackened Death]
Stream

Empyre is, in a word, chaotic. It’s capricious in all aspects, rarely sticking with a single idea for more than a few measures and veering off on wild tangents without notice. There are equal parts melody and dissonance, not relying too heavily on either to drive the music forward. It’s a challenging, visceral listen, but one that’s thoroughly enjoyable if you’re prepared for the ride. Oh, and it’s name your price, so go get it right now. 7/10/16 (Spear)

Bastardizer / BulletBelt – Bring Back The Riff [Split] (Slime Pit Music) [Black Thrash] 
Preview

Some of you might remember Bastardizer from my four part series highlighting my favourite short releases of 2015. For those that missed those posts, you need to know that the quartet from my hometown (Sydney, Australia) play a no-nonsense brand of blackened thrash that will have you fist-pumping and chanting Satanic rites before you even reach one of their infectious choruses. Teaming up this time with New Zealand’s Bulletbelt for this 7″ vinyl release consisting of a cover by each band from slightly unexpected source material. Bastardizer (shown second in the preview clip) have chosen to cover Australian 70’s rock band Skyhooks‘ anthem “Living In The Seventies”, while BulletBelt have chosen a track from veteran kiwi punk band Sticky Filth. The references in the title and accompanying video will probably be lost on those who don’t know an ANZAC from their arse-crack; but you’ll just have to make do with the knowledge that these bastards (like the majority of Rugby fans) crave a return to the simpler times of yore, where if someone was being a fuckwit, you told them so with your fist. You can help bring back the biff riff from July 17th. (- Lacertilian)

    Holy shit been WAY too long since I got to actually read the blog! Pestifere track was nice, but I think PanzerBastard is my choice for now since I’ve got to pack all day. Moving is hell. when does it ever end? Whatevs though, stoked to finally get to hang out in the lovely toilet bowl again. Yup.

    • PostBlackenedWhaleGaze

      Moving might be one of the worst things in the world. Just did it about a month ago, not fun. It’s even more fun when you have a psychotic puppy.

      Also, them Evoke fellas sure do play fast. And digging PanzerBastard.

      • CyberneticOrganism

        I love moving, it means I get to leave some dumphole living space for a better one.

      • Incontinent Gorilla Rodeo

        Finally moved my stuff to the front room, since the fucking nasty as hell roomy got her stuff out. I did, however, find a turd when I moved her bed, which was festering for at least a month. Definitely not one of our animals’ turds, so yeah………….. it took me several hours to get things in here to tip top shape.

    • Señor Jefe El Rosa

      *cracks open 2 beers
      *hands you one

      Mhmm

  • So if you like Running Wild, don’t skip Silverbones

    https://stormspell.bandcamp.com/album/wild-waves

    • Eliza

      I have a Running Wild CD somewhere, maybe I should give it a listen.

      • Running Wild has one of the longest streaks of fantastic albums of any band I can think of. Seriously, who writes 8 stylistically consistent and high quality albums in a row?

        • Incontinent Gorilla Rodeo

          Angra. 🙂

          • Owlswald

            The latest Angra album is really really good. To say I was impressed is an understatement.

          • Incontinent Gorilla Rodeo

            I had my doubts about Fabio taking the lead, but he more than impressed me.

          • Uhhhh no

          • Incontinent Gorilla Rodeo

            Name one weak one! OK, Aurora Consurgens and Aqua were kinda iffy, but not weak by any means.

          • Name one good one that isn’t Temple of Shadows

          • Incontinent Gorilla Rodeo

            Angels Cry, Fireworks, Holy Land, for starters. You at least named my all time favorite album. 😀

        • Ayreonaut

          Rush

    • Señor Jefe El Rosa

      Storm Spell>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

  • Eliza

    The new -(16)- is going to be good, I can feel it.

    • Joaquin Stick

      They got the three Cs of Rich White Dude prosperity in the wrong order. It should be Corporate -> Congress -> Cannibal.

    • Who wants to bet this band is white dudes who grew up in suburbia?

    • Louie Gohmert confirmed for arsonist AND cannibal!

    • Incontinent Gorilla Rodeo

      Is that the manager from Waiting in the second pic?

      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u22m02EMUfY

  • Joaquin Stick

    You’re right about Jugurtha being a challenging listen, that’s for sure. I like it quite a bit so far, but might have to restart it again immediately after to get a better handle on it.

    • i’m only on the first song, but this band could easily appeal to any of Dubz’ Gorgutsian minions (fans of Phobocosm, Altarage, Baring Teeth, etc.)

  • Incontinent Gorilla Rodeo

    Mentioned Words Of Blood’s new one yesterday, and thinking about grabbing that one. Loving it so far, even though I have no clue what they’re saying (I don’t speak Hungarian).

    The Good: Ever have a moment where you randomly find money laying around? I walked (well, actually, pushed a shopping cart as usual) back home from the grocery earlier, and was panicking about my budget afterwards……. when lo and behold, I found a dollar bill and a $20 bill next to it right next to my house. Good times!

    • tertius_decimus

      I pick up money from the ground on a regular basis. Each time different sum, but often. To say, once in two weeks. The last case was 3 days ago. Just a little attention — and you’ll be amazed how unattentive people around are. They’re literally walking on coins and paper money. Sure, those cases bring too little to feel happy, but it really helps when you’re broke.

      I also very often see people dropping money. In this situation I pick up money to return. Who knows how little there’s left in the pocket of this particular woman. Maybe her children are ill, I’ve no right not to return money back.

      • Incontinent Gorilla Rodeo

        If it was a wallet with money it in, I’d return it. I’ve had to do that many times when I was working in restaurants, and when people would drop their wallets on the train. Dollar bills out in the open, though? No way to know, so I’m spending the money and let the economy find the right owner. I’m a believer in karma like that. :-p
        It happened a couple of times when I was in Wrigleyville (Chicago) and I found a $100 bill both times. Needless to say, I drank like a madman both times, haha.

  • who wants to get tattoos of dat Motörheathen artwork with me?

    • Eliza

      Just a shirt is enough.

      • You’re going to get a tattoo of a Motorheathen shirt? I admire the dedication.

        • Eliza

          Lol! I think tattoos are cool, but I’m helplessly afraid of needles, so no.

    • RustyShackleford

      Full back tattoos only, obviously.

  • Elegant Gazing Globe

    I’d pay Orthostat $7 if there were 4 more songs

  • I’m stoked for new Subrosa.

  • Eliza

    That Hangar song has some noice lyrics.

    • upvote for “noice”

    • Incontinent Gorilla Rodeo

      I mostly checked them out before because they had Angra’s ex-drummer, but it didn’t do anything for me.

      • Eliza

        I think it’s ok, not bad, not great, just alright. It would’ve been completely forgettable if not for the lyrics.

  • ColdWorld is rad. Really dug this album by the dude…

  • Maik Beninton™
    • RustyShackleford

      YES. I’ve been majorly out of the loop for the past two months but super hyped for this. Profound Lore lookin good recently with Gevurah, the Grave Miasma EP and soon Psalm Zero.

  • RJA

    I feel like we’ve had our fair share of slow weeks this year? Maybe it’s just me?
    Given me some time to catch up on a few things metal and not metal from last year. Been enjoying me some sad lesbian songs: https://julienbaker.bandcamp.com/album/sprained-ankle-3

    • Lacertilian

      I sent one of her tracks to a couple of the writers earlier in the year, interested to see it featured by bandcamp last month too. However, I still haven’t checked out the whole album. I’m going to assume it’s worthwhile?

      • RJA

        I’m enjoying it quite a bit – got that Mazzy Star spaciness and somber vocals with some late 90’s emo qualities.

  • Incontinent Gorilla Rodeo

    On the lolbuttz end of things, D has a new one coming out on the 15th. For those into Christian visual kei symphonic Japanese folk metal.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b_LmwRw233Y&list=PLE3A0681195656AAC

    • Eliza

      The vocalist does some impressive arm movements.

      • Incontinent Gorilla Rodeo

        There’s a decent riff towards the end, but overall they’re hilariously bad.

        • Eliza

          I only made it to the halfway point, and I only watched so much because the video has that so bad it’s good quality.

          • Incontinent Gorilla Rodeo

            Haha yep! From what I read, their lyrics are always about either Jesus or dragons. Which makes it even more odd/hilariously bad.

          • Eliza

            If they did a song about Jesus and dragons, that’s be worth a listen.

          • Incontinent Gorilla Rodeo

            It’s all in Japanese, but apparently that’s every single song. Oh and love and vampires.

            http://www.metal-archives.com/bands/D/3540351329

          • Eliza

            Love and vampires, that’s not a surprise.

          • Incontinent Gorilla Rodeo

            Jesus, love, vampires, and dragons. It’s one of those “only in Japan” moments!

    • CyberneticOrganism

      When do they kill Sephiroth?

      • Incontinent Gorilla Rodeo

        After they beat the Emerald and Omega Weapons. Which is never.

    • PostBlackenedWhaleGaze

      Can’t tell if singer is a guy or girl

      • Eliza

        Maybe neither.

        • Abradolf Lincler

          dragonkin

        • Incontinent Gorilla Rodeo

          Guy. As I told Postblackened, it’s visual kei, where guys really really dress up like women.

      • Incontinent Gorilla Rodeo

        Guy. It’s visual kei.

    • tertius_decimus

      Weird. That refrain, though! Unexpected. Nicely balances an agressive appearance.

      • Incontinent Gorilla Rodeo

        Whole playlist on the video I posted.

        We need more

    • hey, did you check out that ADE track? i think it’s got “JJM & GL” written all over it

      • ADE?

        • third mention down from the abridged list of new releases

          • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

            The guitar sound is a bit off, but other than that I like it.

          • Roger. Dude, it rips. Agreed!

      • CT-12

        I was just gonna mention to check them out! Not reinventing the wheel or anything, but it’s just killer, standard death metal.

        • yup, it’s easy to take death metal like that for granted when we’ve got all those fancy bands experimenting around. +1

    • Señor Jefe El Rosa

      Yeah, that’s a good one

  • my interim-lateral-boss just said the word “bro”.

    it is time to end it.

  • Owlswald

    Holy shit, Summit definitely wins the week. Sounds like instrumental Ephel Duath.

    • Eliza

      I like that album a lot too.

    • tertius_decimus

      Ephel Duath was different from album to album. Which one you referring to?

      • Owlswald

        Truth. The first track reminded me of Pain Necessary to Know which is easily my favorite.

  • brokensnow

    Fistula is the real feal

    • Eliza

      The first few seconds of Too Many Devils and Drugs made me chuckle a little bit.

  • Waynecro

    IN AETERNUM!!!

    • i clicked it as i saw your comment. THIS BETTER BE GOOD, MR. PRESIDENT

      • Waynecro

        I think it’s pretty decent. I’ve liked this band for a long time. The Pestilent Plague is probably my favorite In Aeternum album, though.

    • Incontinent Gorilla Rodeo

      Awesome band!

  • tertius_decimus

    Jugurtha is fine. Partly dissonant, partly weedly-deedly, partly slamming and overall skronky. And that artwork could have been an icing on a cake in vinyl collection if I had a turntable and was a collectioner.

  • JWEG

    Constantinople – Dieu, la Rue, la République (Solar Asceticists) [Black Metal]

    But guys. It’s Istanbul, not Constantinople…

    (very sorry. couldn’t resist)

  • Phil Zepain

    Jugurtha is fucking great, I did name my price and I did enjoy myself.

    • hey dudebro, what’s going on in the world of Careless Institute? will there be more music in the future?

      • Phil Zepain

        Well, I hope so myself, maybe by the end of 2016 or early next year. Vince and I have been seeing each other those past weeks and have some great stuff ! How are you dude ?
