This Toilet Tuesday (7/5/16)

Welcome to another round of This Toilet Tuesday! This summer is proving to be anything but dry, with tons of good new music on the way. W and I have picked a couple of our favorites from this week, but there’s a lot more where these came from. Be sure to share your picks below!


Anicon – Exegeses (Avantgarde Music) [Black Metal]
Listen to “Toil and Mockery,” “In Shadow and Amber”

Holy crap, this guitar tone is hot fire. Which I guess is why the trees on the cover are burning. Too much fire. That’s what these two Anicon tracks are. Flaming black metal fire straight from the fiery shores of Phlegethon. You NEED to hear this, although I’m not responsible for any third-degree burns done to your ears. FFO: Krallice, Sun Worship, Yellow Eyes 7/7/16 (W.)


Athame – With Cunning Fire and Adversarial Resolve (Grimoire Records) [Black Metal]
Listen to “Five Fold Kiss”

If Anicon are an insidious wildland fire that creeps and torches its way through the countryside, Athame is a volcanic eruption. Lead track “Five Fold Kiss” is all meteoric hunks of molten granite and smothering ash. If the percussion doesn’t crush your cubicle and engulf your coworkers in a river of magma riffs, you may need to consider not working in a bunker. FFO: Craft, Gorgoroth, Aosoth 7/8/16 (W.)

Dust Bolt – Mass Confusion (Napalm Records) [Thrash]
Listen to “Allergy,” “Mass Confusion”

2016 has already been a good year for thrash, and it just keeps getting better. Dust Bolt’s style of thrash will sound familiar to you, but the execution is masterful. The volatile, shifting approach to everything from the tempo to the structure vocal style matches the lyrics, lending them an air of realness that similar thrash bands lack. Mass Confusion is packed with awesome riffs and is not to be missed. 7/8/16 (Spear)


Spellcaster – Night Hides the World (Prosthetic Records) [Heavy Metal]
Listen to “Night Hides the World,” “Betrayal,” “I Live Again”

I don’t listen to a whole lot of old-school heavy metal (or classic metal, or whatever the hell you want to call it); I’ve never really taken the time to dive into the classics, and so many newer bands seem to be using the generally simplistic sound of the genre as an excuse for being bad musicians. Having now encountered Spellcaster, I’m starting to realize I’ve been missing out. The vocals are strong and soaring, and the guitars seem to be locked in a duel for supremacy with each other. It’s immensely satisfying, and now I want more. 7/8/16 (Spear)

      • Noel Mueller

        Home base is Hagerstown MD, but their members live in WV and PA too, kinda around where those three states converge.

    • Spear

      Anicon is most goodly.

  • Maik Beninton™

    I don’t get that Nicolas Cagecore tag.

  • Joaquin Stick

    There are like three people named Colin Marston in the metal world right? There’s no way one guy can mix and master this many things. Digging Anicon, thanks W.

  • Dubbbz

    Full Athame stream is up now, boys. Tyree will be pleased that the second track is strong with the d-beat.

  • tigeraid

    Dust Bolt rooooooooooooooooooooooools.

  • frozengoatsheadupanunsarse

    This Anicon is mighty fiiine…..

  • Janitor Jim Duggan

    Love the Dust Bolt album cover. Also when I think of Kissin Dynamite I think of ACDC’s song off Blow Up Your Video. The only good thing about that album is the cover and the song Heatseeker.

  • EsusMoose

    Ooooohh Cancerous Womb and Inter Arma this week!

  • Old Man Doom

    Man, that new Inter Arma is fucking gorgeous. Looking forward to reviewing it.

  • Abradolf Lincler

    No, RT, Anicon is not the hot new anime convention.

  • brokensnow

    Inter Arma is pretty good.

    • PostBlackenedWhaleGaze

      Also gets better as the album goes on.

  • Hans Müller

    Discount AC/DC indeed. “She was a blonde-haired beauty / I think you know the score” – Well, I know enough to close this tab now, so I guess you’re right.
    This be the real Nicolas Cagecore!

  • This Spellcaster song is so great! Very good harmonies. Thanks, Spear.

    This Athame is violent as fuck! I dig the drumming. Anicon sounds p great too!!! Thanks, Wes.

    This was a productive round, guys. Thanks for the recommendations, once again.

  • Dust Bolt is teh goodness.

  • Ayreonaut

    So I really wanna go to summer slaughter this month (corpse, Nile, suffocation) and I noticed carnifex is playing it too? I always thought they were a stupendously generic death core band and another listen verified that, but even talking to all my friends they seem to be super into them? Wtf are they a thing now? I saw them years ago when they opened for all shall perish and I was very underwhelmed
