This Toilet Tuesday (9/15/15)


Greetings, fellows in filth, and welcome to another This Toilet Tuesday! I’m gonna keep it short this week, because there’s a ton of new material coming out; less reading, more headbanging. With summer mercifully drawing to a close and that most wicked of holidays looming only weeks away, the tide of metal is coming in. Pick your favorites from below and tell us why they’re better than ours. Get some!


Odraza – Kir (Arachnophobia Records) [Black Metal]

This is one of the more interesting releases you’ll find this week. Odraza positioned themselves last year as one of the more unique young black metal bands making waves in the bloated genre. However, Kir, Polish for “pall,” adds another dimension to the band’s intriguing repertoire. This time, the group dabbles primarily in instrumental quasi-doom. Kir was recorded live at the Museum of the City of Krakow for a commissioned event exploring the horrors and suffering of World War II. That lugubrious theme is all pervasive through this 20-minute epic that spans huge chasms of harrowing, open space with a steady, militaristic drum beat. It’s exciting, pensive, and bleak. FFO: Voidhanger, Mare Cognitum, Mgla 9/15/15 (W.)


Deluge – Æther (Les Acteurs de l’Ombre Productions) [Post-Black Metal]

Deluge may have tagged themselves as ambient black metal, but don’t go in expecting any poor man’s ‘gaze. AEther is a bleak exercise in reciting black metal droning incantations through loose, jarring post-hardcore rhythms and chords. Think the apocalyptic revelations of Serpentrance as played by Botch with that special je ne sais quoi characteristic of French metal bands. FFO: Sorrow Plagues, Order of Orias, Converge 9/19/15 (W.)


Tsjuder – Antiliv (Season of Mist) [Black Metal]
Listen to “Demonic Supremacy”

Oslo’s blackened sons return with their first new tunes since 2011’s Legion Helvete, and boy do they have one hell of a 20 minute freeform jazz odyssey for us to delve into. In all seriousness though, you know what you’re getting from a new Tsjuder album. There are no frills, no spoken word poetry breaks, no post blackened shoegaze atmospherics…this is just a straight for the jugular black metal assault. The only way it could be better is if it came with a corpse paint kit. 9/18/15 (Leif Bearikson)


Grift – Syner (Nordvis) [Verdant Black Metal]
Listen to “Aftonlandet,” “Svältorna”

This has been a great year for Ambient Black Metal nature folk flavored music. To compliment the extensive list on this style, the Swedish band, Grift, is releasing Syner. The echoing guitars are layered with bubbly textures, cutted by an agonic vocal display and midtempo blocks of rhythm. With a very blue and cold feeling, the songs here are more sensitive to melancholy and introspection than druidic worship or menacing self-destruction. Grift plays with dexterity the double agent game between the post-metal and ambient black metal countries. 9/18/15 (Link)

my dying bride

My Dying Bride – Feel the Misery (Peaceville Records) [Doom]
Listen to “And My Father Left Forever”

You know MDB, I know MDB and the band knows themselves. That much is clear listening to “And My Father Left Forever”. A very long way away have wandered the days when they experimented (and usually failed) with their sound. Instead we are treated to a melodic death/doom/gothic song with an appropriate dosage of the violin and Aaron Stainthorpe’s clean vocals that, to speak the truth, sound almost as bored as they sound miserable. Overall this is a good thing, the hit-and-miss quality of their recent years considered. Hopefully the whole album continues in the same vein, a predictable but strong latter day My Dying Bride9/18/15 (Karhu)


Tyranny – Aeons in Tectonic Interment (Dark Descent Records) [Funeral Doom]
Listen to “Sunless Deluge”

More Finnish funeral doom for you. Tyranny has been quiet for a long time. After years spent in other bands they have returned to offer us Aeons In Tectonic Interment. It’s opening track – premiered some time ago – creeps slowly as it should, but beneath the layers of doom and dirge lies a foundation of death metal rarely heard as strong in funeral doom these days. Not completely different from Wormphlegm – a project in which both members of Tyranny played. I dimmadig. 9/18/15 (Bearfinn Finnbear)
