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

Odraza – Kir (Arachnophobia Records) [Black Metal]
Stream

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

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

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

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

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

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)

    • CT-12

      Hell yeah man, glad you had a good time!

  • Guppusmaximus

    It’s kind of depressing as to what gets labeled as “Doom” nowadays…

    • Spear

      As I understand it, there are two schools of doom: the monstrous, crawling death-doom type and the Sabbath-worship type. Doom isn’t really my thing, so I label anything that I feel fits those descriptions as such (or if the band call themselves doom). Feel free to educate me if I’m wrong.

      • Guppusmaximus

        Oh, this wasn’t an attack on you. Even outside of TOV, most of what people consider killer “Doom”, to me, sounds like Garage Metal. Just my .02

        • STOP GIVING CENTS! YOU WILL GO IN BANKRUPTCY!

        • Spear

          Oh, I wasn’t mad or anything, I just wanted to explain my reasoning. I wouldn’t even label these things at all if people hadn’t asked for it.

          • Guppusmaximus

            Cool… Just to clarify (besides the obvious Sabbath influences – who can escape them?) Modern Doom is missing the groove, epic riffing and powerful & operatic vocals. That dude from MDB sounds like a poor Dracula imitation.

          • Spear

            Gotcha. I guess I should dig into some old doom at some point. Where’s a good place to start?

          • Guppusmaximus

            Umm…. C A N D L E M A S S

            https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oGHcrR7X1bE

          • KJM

            BLOOD FARMERS.

          • I like to see Doom by different ‘vibes’, ‘textures’ or scenes.

            Aside Sabbath and Candlemass; I think you should check the US brand, apart from being from your country, it have a more bluesy feel mixed with a hard rock structure fixated in the riff: Saint Vitus, Pentagram and Trouble.

            Other scenes are: older doom and 90s death/doom from UK; and sludgy from south US.

          • KJM
          • CT-12

            This song dude…this fucking song. One of the best doom songs ever wrote. The 3rd act in the song (that for some reason this YT video didn’t include) is epic, evil perfection.

          • This Pentagram album is great: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IZi4bm_LS6g

            Trouble’s first album is another milestone: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nmWgpiBtx-E

            I’m not too fond on Saint Vitus, but this is one of the songs I like of them: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lpVUMuLLqug

          • KJM

            Bottom line when it comes to Rock or Metal(especially Doom/Stoner): If you don’t have the Blues, you don’t have shit. Period.

          • Death

            I’ve never like Blues. Fight me.

          • KJM

            Sorry,don’t have thyme in my schedule for a fight.

          • Death

            Every pun they make… It hurts!

          • Guacamole Jim

            It must be about.. thyme.. to stop this.

          • Guppusmaximus
          • Death

            That plastic bag would be very handy right about now.

          • Guppusmaximus
          • Sgt. Poopypanty’s Fartin Teeth

            And when you fall, I will catch you, thyme after thyme.

            (take on Cindy Lauper’s ‘Time After Time’)

          • KJM

            Orange Goblin.

          • KJM cited Orange Goblin, great band. That fuzzy stoner doom is another place to check.

            Specially: Kyuss, Sleep, High on Fire, Cathedral, Electric Wizard…

            The boys here knows a lot on that genre, you can ask them for more of that. I know KJM likes Dopethrone and Weedeater. I like mostly the more riffy, like Sleep, Orange Goblin and Spiritual Beggars (in their older albums that are more fuzz).

          • KJM

            Acid King(who I am seeing in October!)

          • Guppusmaximus

            I’d only disagree because those bands you mentioned, to me, aren’t really doom. Retro 70s Metal? Yes. People forget that what made Black Sabbath “doom” were tracks like “Black Sabbath” while tracks like “The Wizard” were very much their take on the hard rock scene and their influences at the time, imho. Candlemass took that dooming groove and applied their flavor of Metal which was very 80s centric.

          • KJM

            I’ll agree on Kyuss not really fitting the bill, and Sleep could be viewed as more Stoner than Doom, but Electric Wizard not Doom? Ain’t touching that one with a 10ft clown pole.

          • I tend to lump Stoner into the Doom category mostly because the use of textures and slow tempos. Stoner was very influenced by Sabbath’s Master of Reality, anyways.

            https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mJrvfAgcns4

          • KJM

            The s/t and ‘Master Of Reality’ are the Doom Metal blueprint. Those who say otherwise are smoking bath salts laced with paraquat.

          • Vote for Jeb

            Yah, Kyuss and the other desert rock bands are a distinct but related family.

          • They’re like the stoner cousins, amirite?

          • KJM

            I prefer Fu Manchu myself.

          • The few songs I heard of that band are pretty good!

          • KJM

            ‘The Action Is Go’ is their best album IMO.

          • Guppusmaximus

            Actually, for me, it’s a really hard genre to fill because after Sabbath, Candlemass took it to another level and then there wasn’t anything like them afterwards. Yea, I would be wrong to not call Electric Wizard “Doom”…

          • KJM

            Seriously tho, I believe @CT-12 is working on a Blood Farmers article. They are the best US Doom band that almost no one knows about. They’ve been around since the early 90s, but have only released 2 LPs and an EP.

          • CT-12

            Dude, since you mentioned this (and I’ve been thinking about it lately) I’m gonna try and have a Blood Farmers Porcelain Throne wrote up and submitted for sometime in October. I’ve been putting it off for far too long. And yes, Spear or anyone who digs doom, for the life of you, fucking check out Blood Farmers.

          • Sgt. Poopypanty’s Fartin Teeth

            Candlemass is an excellent place to start, as well as St. Vitus.

          • CT-12
          • CT-12

            Also, if you list some of your preferences (such as: more noodly guitars, shorter songs, gruff vox, etc) I can better help to acquaint you with a doom album you would like.

          • Sgt. Poopypanty’s Fartin Teeth

            Groove, epic riffing, and powerful, dramatic vocals in your doom? I got your prescription for that right here!

            Dunno on that one. Could be based on most any castle painting of Jacek Yerka.

            Check out the music though!

          • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

            When MDB’s vocalist was in his prime the vocals were a little more miserable than now, anyways the point is – not a single fan of the band ever wanted operatic vocals for them.

            And even though that doesn’t really matter, I don’t think it would have fit them at all, they would have lost much of what they were going for.

          • CT-12

            You should also check out Desolate Pathway, Crypt Sermon, and Anguish. I know there’s more bands that fit your preferences I know of (such as this enclosed Pilgrim album), I’ll try and post if I remember any. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kfYtYLDL_H8&list=PLXTQ8neqEAN90R_4rGL7lsBDSgxdLbbhe&index=1

    I knew one day the Toilet would come through for me! I didn’t bother asking because going “whats that black metal band I heard on youtube” wouldn’t yield any results…

    Thank you.

        I had not heard. I see a couple things I’m interested in – anything in particular you recommend?

        • CT-12

          Not entirely sure what you like, but I would recommend Ephel Duath (jazz/avant garde), Aosoth (weird black), Forgotten Tomb (DSBM/goth metal), Kongh (sludge), and Urgehal (black). Centinex and Nocturnal Breed are good too. Generally, I’ve heard good things from each band on their BC roster, so you’re probably safe getting just about anything.

          • JJM

            that’s like saying Death and Smitty are the same person

          • ME GORAK B.C.™

            DEATH #1!!!!

          • Death

            Smitty is a fuckface, I’m not. Theory busted!

  • The new My Dying Bride is pretty good. I listened to it on the way to classes this morning and I found it to be quite satisfying.

    • Sgt. Poopypanty’s Fartin Teeth

      I really have to catch up on their catalog. I lost track after “Like Gods Of The Sun”. That, Suffocation and Hypocrisy were the first death metal bands I got into, 20 years ago.

      • I haven’t listened to their entire catalog as of yet. Their particular brand of Death Doom mixed with Gothic is something I really have to be in the mood for to appreciate. I typically only have the craving when it starts to get cold outside and it was 39 Fahrenheit here this morning so I thought I’d give it a blast.

      • Pro Tip: Be happy you lost track. They release 20 albums after LGotS and don’t come up with a single new riff, melody or idea.

        • Sgt. Poopypanty’s Fartin Teeth

          I heard a couple of tracks off of The Dreadful Hours, and didn’t do anything at all for me.

    • Ted Nü-Djent ™

      I’m listening right now and am having the same emotions

  • Awww yes, new Kraanium!

  • Mother Shabubu 8

    Deluge sounds really promising. This is the kind of blackened music I enjoy: a torrential drenching of angered darkness.

  • JWEG

    I’m pleased you included Stellar Descent, even with the iffy genre tag. And pleased that it’s actually out today rather than Friday (guess they forgot the new rules).

    As of this moment it’s still showing a preorder state, though, so I suspect it has to be switched manually and not at some pre-defined time in the early AM (for Europe).

  • Sgt. Poopypanty’s Fartin Teeth

    Oh hell’s yeah, definitely checking out the new Dragon Guardian! Amazed that any news about it came out, since they don’t even have a Facebook or anything on social media. *weebing intensifies*

    BTW, gotta ask……………. Did Tyree get banned? I noticed every last one of his comments a few articles ago were deleted.

    • Vote for Jeb

      We didn’t ban him. Not sure what happened.

      • Sgt. Poopypanty’s Fartin Teeth

        Weird. Disqus did that a few days ago on Rawstory, where people’s comments were randomly getting deleted by Disqus. The mods there restored all the comments, but perhaps Disqus still hasn’t fixed their glitch.

    • Death

      I think he may have deleted his account. Dunno why.

      • Sgt. Poopypanty’s Fartin Teeth

        Because you broke his heart?

        • Death

          I’m not a heartbreaker, dream maker, love taker.

          • Sgt. Poopypanty’s Fartin Teeth

            Faaaaaaaaaaartbreaker, I just knew from the start, that you’d go and cut a fart.

  • old_man_doom

    Goddamnit, I love Tyranny. Funeral doom just the way I like it: subterranean, massive, and dick-crushing. I’ve been listening to Towards Darkness’s “Barren” recently too. Holy hell, that is some A+ quality funeral doomage.

  • Waynecro

    I’m digging Grift, and the Thousand Eyes trailer has some promising tunes.

  • Sgt. Poopypanty’s Fartin Teeth

    The new Is is pretty fucking good. Nice, filthy, melancholy, life hating black metal, just like grandma used to make.
