I’m a simple man. I like my beer domestic, my house pets domestic, and my guitarmonies WILD. Every song by every band, it doesn’t matter the genre, should have every guitar line harmonized with another guitar. And then another if you can. But not more than that; that’s too many guitars. At this point you would have clarity issues and the additional manpower would make touring prohibitively expensive.

Look man, if there’s anything in this world sweeter than two guitars harmonizing with each other I don’t even want to know what it is. There should be tomes of poetry written in homage to the wonder of guitarmonies and then those tomes should be tossed into a fireplace because poetry is stupid and guitarmonies are SICK. I’d love nothing more than to rhapsodize endlessly about the glory of the guitarmony, the kinship of two guitarists guitarmonizing, the widdly widdly weee meeting the diddly diddly dooo; sadly it is late and I’ve got work to do.

So let’s get to it: tonight is an open swim! Talk amongst yourselves. I leave you with some of our favorite guitarmonies.

Did you dig this? Take a second to support Toilet ov Hell on Patreon!
  • ELP is the best band ever and Siren Charms is AOTY.

    PERIOD!!!!

    • Death

      You are a dirty fuck!

      • CONAN THE MOTHERFUCKING KING

        ELP are one of the few bands who could fill stadium crowds like the 80,000 seat olympic stadium in montreal. Floyd did the final show of the wall tour there, famous for waters spitting on a fan which triggered the genesis of the wall album.
        ELP are probably the largest and biggest selling twaddling around with near unlistenable but technically sound music ever. Even more than yes, which is saying something. I dig em myself. There is an internal genius and calm beneath the storm of chaos on the inside like the gas of a planet hides its surface of joy and wonder.

    • Janitor Jim Dvggan

      I love ELP but I do not consider Siren Charms album of the year. I consider it one of the top 10 non metal albums of the year but that has no effect on my actual AOTY list.

  • YourLogicIsFlushed

    That friggin Audrey Horne song won’t leave my head. It’s almost comically cheerful. So great.

    • I know dude. I think I’ve jammed it a dozen times today.

  • Cock ov Steele

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L5Sme8wR23c Next to Cowboy Song, this has some of my favorite guitarmonies.

    • FeelTheDarkness

      This was an album I bought back in 1985 just because of the cover. Boy was I pleasantly surprised.

      • CONAN THE MOTHERFUCKING KING

        Anthrax are still selling this shirt on their site.

    • CONAN THE MOTHERFUCKING KING

      I haven’t listened to this in ages , i had it on cassette which wore out years ago. I updated my thrax collection and didn’t by this on cd yet. Will have to revisit it but i am still a joey man through and through.

      • Cock ov Steele

        Agreed, and I wish they could’ve re-recorded the rest of the songs off this album with Joey.

        • CONAN THE MOTHERFUCKING KING

          Would be interesting, i wonder if some of the audio turds from the bush years could be polished up by the golden pipes of joey. Just thinking out loud, i know it will never happen , i am just hoping for a great follow up to WM.

  • Howard Dean

    Guitarmonies? You need ’83 Slayer! Byah!

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xVbAA-4FX0M

    • IronLawnmower

      Slayer before they sucked is the shit.

      • FeelTheDarkness

        a million amens

      • Death

        When were they good?

        • Howard Dean

          Show No Mercy, Haunting the Chapel, Hell Awaits, and Reign in Blood are all unfuckwithable and timeless. People who pretend like Slayer were never good are the same people who pretend that Metallica or Megadeth were never good. If you don’t like thrash or 80’s metal or even if you don’t like the particular style of aggressive thrash Slayer played, well, that’s one thing. But to pretend that Slayer was never a good band is asinine. They were early and front line thrash stalwarts, and pretty much laid the groundwork for death metal with their Hell Awaits/Reign in Blood sound (not single handedly, of course).

          • NDNOvHell

            Couldn’t have said it better myself

          • Death

            Still doesn’t change the fact that I don’t like them or thrash metal on general.

          • Death

            I’m gonna go tell mommy!

          • Cock ov Steele

            I saw your mommy, and your mommy’s dead.

          • Virgil the Ghost Poet

            I have a question for you after reading your post. Do you listen to Built To Spill? If you don’t I recommend that you do. Great guitar stuff!

          • I love so many indie guitar bands, dude! I kinda want to cover a few for the site. This is my fav Built To Spill tune.
            https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5MjBMhlMq3s

          • Virgil the Ghost Poet

            Mine is Traces. I love the guitar at the final 2 minutes of the song. I don’t know how to link a you tub video or I will link it for you, sorry.

          • I dig that tune. And for future reference you can just copy+paste the URL and it’ll embed for you.

          • Virgil the Ghost Poet

            Thanks.

          • Howard Dean

            I obviously wasn’t attempting to dissuade you from your convictions if you legitimately dislike thrash (which is why I overtly and clearly said as much). If you dislike thrash metal, you probably won’t like early Slayer. But saying they were never good at what they did is asinine, especially when you don’t like and don’t listen to that type of music! Let me draw an analogy: I don’t like deathcore, but it would be ridiculous for me to claim that Despised Icon or The Red Chord were never good bands.

          • W.

            I actually like Despised Icon, despite disliking most deathcore.

          • Death

            I never said that they are not good at what they do. By “good” I meant something that I enjoy. I acknowledge that Slayer and other known thrash bands are influential.

          • CONAN THE MOTHERFUCKING KING

            You are an obstinate cuss death, and i love you for it. Death always has the final word literally and figuratively.

          • Cock ov Steele

            If you wanna see all those petty arguments or the “Guys I’m a true thrasher, Metallica and Slayer have always sucked. Hail (insert relatively obscure 80s thrash/speed band)!” there’s a group on FB called Thrash Metal.

          • CONAN THE MOTHERFUCKING KING

            Today in metal history:
            1996 – King Diamond released the album The Graveyard
            1994 – Testament released the album Low

          • Janitor Jim Dvggan

            Reign in Blood is one of the greatest albums ever. I’m still dreading the new “Slayer” album as I know it will not be good. Also on the subject of Slayer I listened to my vinyl copy of Diabolus In Musica and I enjoyed it. Compared to God Hates Us All it was a great album because GHUA was a terrible Slayer album.

          • MoshOff

            Dude, I recently re-listened to Diabouls and it’s like, good. I was very pleasently surprised.

          • Janitor Jim Dvggan

            I listened to it and compared to God Hates Us All it was amazing. I think it would stand well on its own without being compared to GHUA.

          • CONAN THE MOTHERFUCKING KING

            I count seasons as just as much a classic. The title track is a masterpiece of mid paced thrash. Megadeth have been trying to make midpaced thrash for a long time and either don’t know how, can’t or just given up. I prefer this vocal approach from araya as well.

        • IronLawnmower

          First 3/4 albums.

    • Simon Phoenix

      I’m one of those wierdos who believes that Show no Mercy and especially Hell Awaits are better than Reign in Blood.

      • Howard Dean

        I am, too.

      • Howard Dean

        Edit: double post. I’ll just use this space to reiterate the awesomeness of Show No Mercy. I AM THE ANTICHRIST!

      • Hail and Kill

        At dawn they sleep is the f’n jam

  • Guppusmaximus

    I dunno about guitarmonizing (actually, yup, they’re pretty sweet) but the solo on Glory Box from Portishead is Bonerrific!!

    *They were fucking awesome live*

    http://youtu.be/SLrkE6T_m5Y

    • Deputy Dipshit

      Love Portishead. Too damn good. Beth Gibbons voice is just haunting in the best way possible.

  • YourLogicIsFlushed

    Never enough Pain of Salvation. Subtle guitarmony at the beginning. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TrG_x89Ke3g

    • Guacamole Jim

      I thought you didn’t like these guys…

      • YourLogicIsFlushed

        No way mang, where would you ever get that idea? Love me some PoS.

        • crazytaco_12

          Piece of shit? haha just fucking with you

  • JWG

    Here’s one. The dual-lead is most noticeable in the first 30 seconds and again around the 4-minute mark. But it definitely fits.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=20KHrPs5Uiw

    I could also have saved it for a Riff of the Week. Fortunately there’s plenty more ROTW potential on Surveillance…

    • I think ROTW is going to get even better with our themed weeks. We might have to do guitarmonies one week in the future!

    • CONAN THE MOTHERFUCKING KING

      Good call , over looked album, but edge of excess with phil X was an abomination. Interesting factoid : phil replaced sambora in bon jovi. Finally got a ticket to the big time. Another canadian to be proud of.

        have to put in skynyrd , triple leads that even influenced cliff burton. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CTtaflRXBCgd

        • Cock ov Steele

          Oh man, I can’t ell you how I’ve always wanted to be able to play the solos of Call me the Breeze. But I could never figure out guitar to save me life.

          http://hauntedhouses.com/photos-movies/legendhellhouse/legend-hell-house-40-90.jpg I wish they gave Pamela Franklin more dirty scenes in Hell House. I mean c’mon she is a thing of 70s beauty.

          • CONAN THE MOTHERFUCKING KING

            Hell house is so fucking good for a non R rated horror. 70’s women , don’t get me started, ahhahhahh, no silicone shit, personally i hate the fake stuff, if a woman has small breasts she does, makes her no less sexy. Maybe my favorite part is when the giant cross crushes roddy mcdowall ( who played cornelius in the 70’s and superior planet of the apes films.) i am laughing about it right now, it was so goddamn funny. The guy who played the main scientist , clive revell did the voice of the emperor in the empire strikes back when vader talked to him as a hologram. Of course lucas edited him out of the original film and put the other guy who played the emperor’s voice on the blu ray. Couldn’t even let revell have that, and that’s just one of a million reasons lucas is an asshole. He did it for continuity ! I don’t think 20 seconds of another voice of a english actor would have disrupted the film. What a horrible human being george was/is. She was hot stuff.

          • Cock ov Steele

            I definitely noticed it when they edited Hayden Christiansen in during the celebrations scene of Return of the Jedi. I wonder if the unedited versions can still be found on DVD.

          • CONAN THE MOTHERFUCKING KING

            yea, they are on ebay for around 80 bucks, but they are not even widescreen as far as i know. So you are basically getting a vhs picture quality from when they came out in the 80’s on vhs and beta. Although i have heard through the grapevine that the laserdisc has a better picture. I wonder who came up with that idea, ahhahahh, it looked like a cd the size of an lp , completely ridiculous but i guess the picture was decent, they are still highly collectable on ebay.

          • Is that the singer from the Hives?!?

        • Deputy Dipshit

          Hail brother BRONAN! m/ Deputy approves!

          • CONAN THE MOTHERFUCKING KING

            now i know how to sneak pics in without getting caught. The trick is marrying a woman who will look this good when she gets old, there is no way of knowing when they are young how they will end up. Kind of sexist i guess, but some women just age gracefully.
            she is 59 ! wow.

          • She’s a diamond!!!

  • Deputy Dipshit

    Bring on your flushes!

    All hail the Gods and Gold Standard!

    That intro.

    • Mother Shabubu III

      So this is what Newsted sounds like?

      • Deputy Dipshit

        Poor guy took so much shit.

    • The Satan Ov Hell

      Not gonna like, loving this remaster, the bass. THE BASS

      • CONAN THE MOTHERFUCKING KING

        remember these guys.

        • Janitor Jim Dvggan

          I know of them. I’ve seen copies of their albums at my local record store.

        • Yep!!!!

        • The Satan Ov Hell

          I often times miss the days when metal bands were given names such as Leather Wolf, Judas Priest, Iron Maiden. Names like those many times beat names such as “Undead satan”

    • W.

      A. When did they remaster it?
      B. This might be my favorite album ever. No joke.

      • Deputy Dipshit

        I have no clue, but I was thrashing like a fucking madman at my desk when I was listening earlier. It was reminiscent of the first listen I had of AJFA when I was in elementary school. m/

        • Janitor Jim Dvggan

          The first real metal album I listened to was Divine Intervention by Slayer in 4th grade. I mostly listened to nu metal before that but this album got me into metal outside of nu metal. I bought the vinyl reissue of it as well as Diabolus In Musica when they came out and Divine Intervention still holds up.

          • Deputy Dipshit

            I think I was in third or fourth grade when I first heard this. This was my first CD ever along with the black album.

          • Janitor Jim Dvggan

            I loved Metallica at one point but then I heard the black album and Load and I gave up on them. When I heard Lulu for the first time I wept for Cliff Burton who is probably looking down and weeping because of Metallica’s crap since The Black Album.

      • CONAN THE MOTHERFUCKING KING

        It’s just a homemade mix by a fan i think.

        • Deputy Dipshit

          Yea, I read further down in the video and it’s fan made. I’m not mad though.

          • CONAN THE MOTHERFUCKING KING

            it makes a person think though, if this guy on the net can do this good a job of remixing it why can’t they get a so called professional to do it. Millions of dollars spent on big time producers who don’t even know what they are doing anymore or built their reputation on a few great albums, kind of like george lucas, sure he made the original trilogy , but he made howard the duck, the star wars prequels, crystal skull and the list goes on.
            They should hire this guy whoever he is. The thing is there is hundreds of talented would be producers online these days who are great, and self taught. A real bunch of talent waiting to be discovered.

    • The album that started it all for me. Then my listening habits spiraled into faster, louder & noisier.

    • metal up your ass!!!!!!!! m/

  • IronLawnmower

    https://soundcloud.com/djalex1s/the-mirror-no-vocals I just recorded this song/demo for our vocalist to do vocal patterns for. It’ll likely be re-recorded to be less super raw and sloppy. Give thoughts tho.

  • Guacamole Jim

    POOOOOOOOOOOOOOOP

    #lolbuttz

    Goddamn my work day is shit.

  • FeelTheDarkness
    • That dude looks familiar.

      • FeelTheDarkness

        A slight resemblence

      • Captain Ron Rico

        Insidious completely ruined him for me.

        • Man, that devil dude was lame. Although I thought the trve black metal guy from Sinister was rad so what do I know.

          • W.

            I thought the first half of Insidious was pretty creepy. It got week at the end, though.

          • Deputy Dipshit

            I enjoyed Insidious for what it was. The Conjuring was better. As Joe mentioned Sinister, I thought that was pretty sick.

          • I thought Sinister was the shit but I’ve met a ton of folks that disagree with me.

          • old_man_doom

            Sinister truly disturbed me the first time around.

          • KJM

            The music was utilized well.

          • Cock ov Steele

            The music they had playing for the “snuff” videos was some of the creepiest fucking shit I’ve ever heard. Like someone get that composer an ambient black metal band!

          • Shit. I can’t remember off the top of my head but it was done by a really famous electronic group. I gotta look it up. But you’re right, it was awesome.

          • Guest

            MGMT, I think.

          • Boards of Canada. That was going to drive me crazy.

          • Guacamole Jim

            You beat me to it. Boards of Canada is fucking awesome.

          • pïgchop™

            They must have all been drinking bad wine.

          • KJM

            I enjoyed both Sinister & Insidious.

            However, I was disappointed by The Conjuring.

          • CONAN THE MOTHERFUCKING KING

            the continuation of the conjuration annabelle looks to be a dissapointment even though it has an R rating. Possessed dolls have been a theme since the twilight zone in the 60’s like the episode talking tina where telly savalas was attacked by his daughters doll.
            Sinister and insidious were good, i also enjoy haunting in connecticut because of the lovely virginia who had age 50 stlll looks as smoking as she did in candyman in 95.
            Sinister, oculus , and lovely molly are also some american movies i will ruin my cult movie reputation with.

          • Deputy Dipshit

            YES! Haunting in Connecticut was solid. I don’t think that film got enough credit.

          • old_man_doom

            I view “The Conjuring” as a basic summation of every haunted house/naive family/demonic possession/exorcism trope-based film made in the last 5 years, and that’s not a good thing. I’d much rather watch the original Amityville Horror a dozen more times than see more “Conjuring” type-stuff. Maybe that’s a bit harsh; to be honest, it’s still a good thing to see a resurgence in the horror genre, even if it is dubious in quality.

          • CONAN THE MOTHERFUCKING KING

            That wraps it all up well. The original amityville scared me the first time i saw it and it still does so much so i don’t watch it. I have read the book, many documentaries and it is one of the few instances of a haunting that seems legit. Everytime i see a house that looks like that i feel uneasy as well. The second amityville was good too although completely unrealistic, the strange relationship with the brother and sister was very disturbing i thought. I saw amityville 3d in the theatre, it was horrible but the 3d effects were not much worse than they are today. The remake with reynolds was as scary as steel toed boots to the nuts. Maybe that is scary ? Didn’t even get to see the blonde actress naked.

          • Howard Dean
          • KJM

            I’d say that’s a pretty honest assessment. I imagine The Conjuring works much better if you’re young and haven’t seen any of the 70s-80s Horror classics.

          • Cock ov Steele

            They all had those brilliant freaky parts like the clapping scene in Conjuring and this part https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LFuylvwXGi4 (note +1 for the G-milf)

          • Cock ov Steele

            Lol whats funny is I get the titles of those movies confused quite often, but yeah it was pretty creepy until it was revealed he was Darth Maul.

      • Tiny Tim?

  • Mother Shabubu III
    • IronLawnmower

      It’s a great way to get into politics.

      • Mother Shabubu III

        It’s anal breathing, not anal-scented moutbreathing. Get it? Cuz they’re shitheads? Wakka wakka!

  • Just launched the redesign of the website for the company I work for. I basically did all the work myself, so I’m feeling pretty damn proud of my internet baby right now.

    • CONAN THE MOTHERFUCKING KING

      always glad to hear someone from the toilet is doing well. It’s like a family here.

    Been at a climate change and transportation conference all day. This album is untouchable. Byah!

    • crazytaco_12

      Fuck man, every song I’ve heard from this band has intrigued me, yet I puss out from ever buying their stuff. I gotta really take the time to listen to their shit online and just buy an album already.

      • W.

        I think i first posted The Ocean on accident, but Pelagial and Precambrian are both solid albums. What I meant to post (and have since fixed) was With Oden on Our Side.

        • crazytaco_12

          Well I will have to check that out as well!

        • old_man_doom

          May I take a second to say that all three aforementioned albums are unflushable?

    • J.R.

      I am seeing them in a few weeks with Sabaton and if they only play this album I will be content.
      I also want Amon Amarth and Sabaton to play “Twilight of the Thunder God” together like brutal best buddies. I would die.

      • Howard Dean

        “Targeted Banners, Bloody Flags” is one of my Amon Amarth faves.

        • J.R.

          That song absolutely crushes! Definitely a favorite of mine as well. I’ve always enjoyed “Predictions of Warfare” as well. I cant tell if they purposely made it foreshadow the following album, though.

      • CONAN THE MOTHERFUCKING KING

        I am going sunday with skeletonwitch opening. I am a thrash fan so what do you think of skeletonwitch. I have never seen any of these bands before so it should be a CROM approved night.

        • J.R.

          I am actually not very familiar with Skeletonwitch at all. Im just excited that Amon Amarth are coming to The South. You’ll have to share with me your thoughts on Monday, as Im seeing them the 26th. CROM would go to an Amon Amarth show, I would wager…

          • CONAN THE MOTHERFUCKING KING

            I will, we don’t get many shows up in the middle of canada either but they have been here before although the AA guys are used to the cold and snow no doubt.

          • Paris Hilton

            I will be at that show. Watching, waiting…

          • J.R.

            I would hope so. What sort of viking it turned away by a little cold? They should play exceptional well in their native environment. So I guess for prime Sabaton you need to be in a WWI trench, and Sketeletonwitch….a necrotic sepulchral tomb?

          • CONAN THE MOTHERFUCKING KING

            ahhahhahh, sounds about right, for Hail of Bullets i would say it would be facing down a panzer.

          • J.R.

            I would buy a game that played like Metal Slug but utilized the band members as characters and Sabaton tracks for background music.

        • Virgil the Ghost Poet

          I saw them open for Danzig. They’re great. Great live, great albums, and nice guys. Eat some pussy!!!!

    • Virgil the Ghost Poet

      Really? I didn’t get to go but I do sign all the petitions. How’d it go?

  • crazytaco_12

    Guh, hate having obligations that take away from my free time to fuck around on the toilet. Have a good day/night everyone. Gotta work on a shitton of new music and writing

  • Listening to the new Godflesh which has little harmony but I’m very impressed it.

    When it comes to guitarmonies there can be only one master of the guitarmony. Here is the master of the guitarmony at work in probably my favorite song by these guys.

    • CONAN THE MOTHERFUCKING KING

      album cover is just as brilliant as the contents.

    • Virgil the Ghost Poet

      My favorite is Veteran of Psychedelic Wars.

  • Janitor Jim Dvggan

    Listening to Divine Intervention by Slayer right now. I like it a lot but not as much as I used to like it. The drumming really irks me because Paul Bostaph was not good here yet he was still better than on Diabolus In Musica and God Hates Us All. The songs really flow well with the episodes of WCW Thunder I am watching from December 1999.

    Tuesday? MOVIE TIME!!! This week I present the following two films: SQURIM https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0AXZXgmwPdM and…The Incredible Melting Man https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sSSeHzCeELo

    Enjoy fuckers.

    • Janitor Jim Dvggan

      Any movie called The Incredible Melting Man seems so good that I have to watch it.

    • Scrimm

      I’m gonna go with the classic Black Christmas myself. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ysBKrRtBuag

      • CONAN THE MOTHERFUCKING KING

        i don’t care what others say this is the ultimate proto slasher. And it’s canadian to boot ~ I heard people say some movie called peeping tom is the first but i don’t go for that. If i want to go back i will say pscho but that was more of a violence threshold than a slasher like this. Hitchcock made a hell of a lot of good movies though.

        • Scrimm

          Yeah I think this is the real start of that genre. Such an underrated film.

  • Janitor Jim Dvggan

    Breaking Benjamin is coming near me. I am excited because they were the best in my teenage mind even though I liked a lot of really good metal at the time like Behemoth and the album An Overdose Of Death by Toxic Holocaust. I’m still amazed that a band as big as them is playing a venue as small as The Chance. I’m going to have to buy a ticket as soon as possible as I know it will probably sell out.

    New Maiden has some fucking gems for guitarmonies. I love the oft despised “Dance of Death” just for all the sweet, sweet guitarmonies that lie within!

    • Scrimm

      I love Dance of Death, screw the haters. The song Paschendale alone was justification for the entire reunion.

      • Virgil the Ghost Poet

        I only own 6 Maiden albums. I need to get some more and give them a listen. You talk very highly of them.

        • Scrimm

          I am admittedly a complete fanatic. Bruce Dickinson can do very little wrong in my eyes.

          • Virgil the Ghost Poet

            I like most of what I got I just never tried to get anymore. I love Fear of the Dark, SSOASS, SWIT, I did not like Wicker man and # of the Beast. I have never heard any others outside of compilation CDs.

          • Scrimm

            Brave New World, the album with Wicker Man is tied for my least favorite Bruce Album. Don’t care for The Number of the Beast the song but the album has some all time classics. Children of the Damned, 22 Acacia Avenue and Hallowed Be Thy Name are unflushable. Powerslave was my first and is still my favorite, the album that started it all for me.

          • Virgil the Ghost Poet

            Then that will be the one I get next. Thanks.

      • Paris Hilton

        Paschendale was such a brutal battle too. Both the UK and Canada lost a lot of lives then. On a more upbeat note, Rainmaker is a chill little gem off that album too!

        • Scrimm

          Indeed.

  • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

    Wishbone Ash, or get the fuck out. The original guitarmonies……

    The cymbals sound like shit on this album, but the riffs get me so fucking pumped: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kd0y6vFC3CA

    Though I see your point.
