Happy Tuesday, flushers. Spear, Deputy Dipshit, Jack Bauer, and Flushgod Apocalypse are back this week with another edition of This Toilet Tuesday. Unfortunately, this week is sort of like a ghost poopy, in that there was a whole lot of effort and time spent to bring you this thread, but there’s very little material in the bowl to show for it. Oh well. We hope you find some nugget to enjoy.

Gorgasm – Destined to Violate (New Standard Elite) 7/31/14

Stream

Okay, so technically New Standard Elite decided to put this album out early after it leaked, but its official release is the 31st and it still deserves mention!  Gorgasm doesn’t really bring anything new to the table with “Destined to Violate,” but that’s not necessarily a bad thing.  Songs jump without warning between ferocious blastbeat-driven diminished/chromatic runs and mammoth, slower riffs. Technical without being noodly and thoroughly savage, this is not an album to be missed. (Spear)

Steamforged – The Endless (Independent) 7/31/14

Listen to “Atlantis – Trenchbound Majesty”

Picture this: Jordan Rudess dives into the ocean, meets Poseidon, murders him with his own trident, and consummates with Amphitrite. 9 months later, a keyboard-shredding half-human, half-Atlantian is born. The chosen one is named Steamforged, and he rises from the depths to bring us The Endless, an instrumental keyboard-driven progressive metal album. (Flushgod Apocalypse)

    Mutilation Process, not to be confused with Mutilation Rites, who I believe also have a new release out today!

    • W.

      Mutilation Rites came out last week, homey.

      • Negrodamus

        Ah, shit, my b. I saw a review online for it today.

      • Tyree

        It’s on my wishlist. I want to buy, but I spent way to much yesterday on music. DAMN IT!!!

    • Tyree

      That MUTILATION PROCESS is dirty sounding. I’m liking it!

      • Negrodamus

        I’m a need to check that shit out then!

  • i said this before, sorry to repeat it…
    somebody please review the new Darkest Hour.
    and by that i mean, “is anyone here a glutton for punishment?”

    • It’s coming! I promise!

      • i have faith in the almighty Thrasnkill’s Abattoir!!!

        • Flushgod Apocalypse

          Carcass reference? I approve.

    • I tried to think of something to write for them since they were on my list for new releases. Problem is I have never heard any of their stuff before this and they made a quite a shitty first impression.

      • it’s so terrible. and it’s coming from a band with a SOLID discography. if you’re new to DH, i highly recommend Undoing Ruin and Deliver Us. hopefully they’ll be the rocket to a new listener as well!

    • Steve Smithwick

      Bojangles did a live-review of that album on the FB page. It was highly comedic. He… did not like it, and that made him sad, because he likes the band.

      • my thoughts exactly. i’ll check it out, i haven’t been on the FB in a minute…

    • Mr. Bojangles

      Ask and you shall receive,
      with a poop on top.

      -Mr. Bojangles

  • Tyree

    Gorgasm! Hahaha, Yes!

    • Negrodamus

      Not to be confused with Killgasm.

      • Tyree

        They just came out with an album this year.

        • Negrodamus

          That’s the one I was thinking of, no frills!

      • KJM

        Or Wargasm.

        • Gurp

          Good band.

          • KJM

            I’m from the Boston area so I saw them a couple times during their glory days. I always get confused trying to remember who they opened for. I’m pretty sure it was either Slayer or Motorhead.

          • Gurp

            Oh man, you were around? You must have seen a BUNCH of those bands in their glory days.

          • KJM

            Being a middle aged geezer has it’s advantages.

          • Gurp

            I’m totally jealous.

        • or Stargasm. bad song.

          • Tyree

            So bad.

          • KJM

            The Hunter was such a huge step down from Crack The Skye.

          • Gorgasm

            boooo, that was actually my fave from the hunter…I’ll admit i’m a big ole Mastodon fanboy and will stand by them until the end.

          • the only song i like from The Hunter (and i like it A LOT) is Bedazzled Fingernails.

          • Paul Will.I.Am.s

            That song is tits; I love the Crimson vibe on it.

    • Gorgasm

      Yes?

  • Deputy Dipshit

    Weak week.
    *ploop!*
    Ghost deuce? No wipes?
    *fluuuuuuuuuuuuush*

    • CONAN THE MOTHERFUCKING KING

      yikes, that skid row, katy bar the door, they are going to be knocking each other down at the walgreens trying to get that one……….

  • RuIN?

    Skid Row anybody? Gotta give them credit for trying but it isn’t working.

    • Deputy Dipshit

      I’ll go and throw on Slave to the Grind! That was their climax! m/

      • Negrodamus

        One more thing that is near the top of my Impossible Neverending Queue lol.

        • JAG’s gonna be mad at you.

          • Negrodamus

            Yeah hopefully he only skims the comments for today, or fails to come to the Toilet entirely!

  • YourLogicSucks

    Sad week this week. Instead you can listen to these guys, who seem to be flying under the radar. Kinda on the same page as Son of Aurelius. http://asenseofgravity.bandcamp.com/

    • Flushgod Apocalypse

      I really like what this band is going for, but man.. the clean singing kills it for me in places.

      • YourLogicSucks

        Really? I thoroughly enjoy both the harsh and clean from him.

        • Flushgod Apocalypse

          I’ll give it another spin — I haven’t listened since it first came out. And to be fair, I don’t think I’ve listened on a good set of speakers either.

        • Flushgod Apocalypse

          I retract my previous comment. This album rips. And the solo section in ‘Trichotillomania’ is heavenly.

    • Negrodamus

      Son of Aurelius is in the running for me for 2014’s Hipster AOTY.

      • Interesting. I’mma check it and report back.

        • YourLogicSucks

          Spoiler: It’s friggin’ good.

        • It’s a huge departure from their first album, The Farthest Reaches which was also phenomenal. It is really goddamn good though.

        • Negrodamus

          I try to listen to a lot of new stuff (prolly too much, lol), and Under A Western Sun just jumped out at me as something I really really liked right away. Caught me by surprise!

      • RuIN?

        Listening to it now and they do a good job of not letting the jazzy/proggy bits get in the way of a good metal sound. Vocals though, a little too much like Protest the Hero, but I like it anyway.

        • Negrodamus

          I’m not a Protest the Hero expert by any means, but I have checked out some of their stuff and I like them, anyways I do think they are one of the better acts that combine clean and harsh vocals. The Dillinger Escape Plan, when their stuff works, also do a pretty good job at that in my humble opinion.

      • whoa whoa whoa buddy, “Hipster AOTY”?

        • Negrodamus

          Lol, I always see online Best of Lists referred to as Hipster Lists, so it’s the list that is hipster, not Son of Aurelius!

    • I had this album for a while. It’s good but the clean singing just ruins it for me.

      • YourLogicSucks

        Everyone’s so down on the cleans. But then again I have a mega high tolerance for even the most annoying cleans, so maybe I am a terrible judge.

        • I mean, there are some bands cleans I really like (black crown initiate, btbam to name a few) but his just irk me for some reason. It is strange though since I love persefone and his cleans are pretty similar to theirs. Just something about the tone I guess.

        • Ok, I don’t know what my problem was. Gave it another listen, digging it now. It was probably one of those things where I listened to Archspire or Artificial Brain right before it.

          • YourLogicSucks

            Are you and Flushgod the same person, but just temporally behind a few minutes?

    • good point! i really dig that album too. is it excessive? ya, but they pull it off.

  • Anthrallica

    With a few bong rips and a couple retro racing games (F-Zero or Outrun 2006), Steamforged could be my new jam.

  • Drilldo Pillow

    Mutilation Process link is busted (for me), y’all!

    • Thanks for the heads up. Fixed. If you refresh the page all should be good.

  • Scrimm

    Depressing week. I’m just gonna pretend The Dagger came out this week too.

  • Norfair Legend

    What about Fungonewrong ? Reminds me of like a less angry S.O.D. Just fun drinkin’ music.

  • SYL!’s 7 Year Old Son

    My Dad says he wants to put me in a panopticon. I’m not sure what instrument I would play though.

    • KJM

      If you would just be a good boy and stay in your cage, Daddy wouldn’t be so mean to you.

  • That’s my bad on Darkest Hour, doesn’t come out until August 5th.

  • Mr. Bojangles

    Darkest Hour actually comes out the 5th. You FUCKING IDIOTS GOD DAMNIT. HOW DARE YOU INSULT DARKEST HOUR.

    • Steve Smithwick

      Bo, brother, you insulted the fuck out of that album very recently. In public!

      • Mr. Bojangles

        FUCK YOU. FUCK DARKEST HOUR. FUCK THIS POST. FUCK TOILET TUESDAY

        FUCK MYSELF.

        -Mr. Bojangles

      • Mr. Bojangles

        p.s. that won’t be the last you see of me insulting Darkest Hour.

        -Mr. Bojangles

    • M Shadows!

      Ey BroJangles! Darkest Hour sux!

  • Rizzle01

    I will be checking out the Last 10 Seconds of Life reissues but I am going to wait and buy it from them when they come through Boise next month.

  • Gorgasm

    DAMMIT!!! I had no idea there was already a band with the name Gorgasm…

    AND Y U NO MENTION TRUDGER!!!!

    • Spear

      Yeah, Gorod found that out the hard way in 2005.

      Also, I have dishonored this blog, my family, and myself for not mentioning Trudger. I must now commit sudoku.

      • Gorgasm

        I feel compelled to change my username, now.

        “The Commenter formerly known as Gorgasm”
        lol

  • Xan

    Eluveitie’s new album comes out on Friday.

  • Xan

    Well, have a band who’s name I laughed for about six minutes over: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a_SovLoFvRY

    • Phuo

      I guess my hope for a King Crimson cover was unrealistic with a band name like that 🙁

  • Gorgasm
  • Tommy P

    “Weak week.”

    Steamforged will destroy you.

    • Spear

      Weak in that there weren’t a ton of releases, not that everything is bad. The new Invidiosus was sounding pretty solid, too.

      • Tommy P

        My jimmies were rustled and I had to post

        • Spear

          Ah, understandable. Can’t let your jimmies get rustled with nothing to show for it.

  • Ayreonaut

    I want a RiotAct article

  • Unisonic IMO.

  • acidcvnt

    It would be cool if under “Other New Releases:” you’d add what genre the band plays.

    • Further Down the Metal Hole

      That would be pretty rad, actually. No need to come up with descriptions though, just use whatever the band uses to describe themselves.

      Pretty please with sugar on top. (I’ll still go through every link anyway, but may want to check somethin specific out first.)

  • dr.derelict

    that Oubliette release is nasty. black metal enthusiasts should give it a listen.
