Shit That Comes Out Today: September 23, 2016


Hello MetalSucks reader! Welcome to Shit That Comes Out Today, your Satanic bible of this week’s heavy new releases. We list ‘em, we spotlight ‘em, we link you to their preview jams and full streams — and we usually stick ‘em in a fancy Spotify playlist too (below) — all for your jammage!


The Sword Low CountryThe Sword
Low Country (Razor & Tie)
On a playlist with: Greg Graffin, Thrice, Watain’s “They Rode On”
Listen “Seriously Mysterious” (here)

It’s an awesome idea to do two versions of the same album. Usually the big, heavy album comes first, then a somehow smaller, more specific version arrives a year later. In this case, it’s The Sword’s High Country and now Low Country. Sure, the creation of two versions of the same album requires that the artist to demonstrate fluency in two styles. So our question to fans of The Sword: Did they pull it off?


Coroner AutopsyCoroner
Autopsy box (Century Media)
On a playlist with: Kreator, Tool, Realm
Listen Rewind documentary teaser (watch)

Like Coroner itself, fans of Coroner were a bit ahead of the game in the ’90s. But here in 2016, if you’re not into Coroner, you’re tardy. It’s an innocent type of lateness, for Coroner’s music doesn’t lunge for your devotion, just as three babes lying motionless on the beach may be overlooked among jiggly revelers and tight volleyballers. But a minute spent at their side reveals depth not cold, openness but no neediness. They won’t ask you back to their house, yet you know you’re invited. Up for a week’s stay? Then this collection of live tracks, highlights, and a documentary titled Autopsy is for you. New album next year!!!!


True WidowTrue Widow
Avvolgere (Relapse)
On a playlist with: Jesu, Nothing, Wolf Alice
Listen Avvolgere full stream (here)

Have you seen that band Lush on their current tour? They spent the ’90s scoring an A+ for songwriting, lyrics, and vibe, but band members themselves would agree with a superfan’s grading of their live performances with a C+. Lush 2016, however, is a concert powerhouse via their new legit drummer, who has reimagined a few beats, added a shitload of fills, and authored a whole new dynamic for songs from the era when proficiency was distasteful like a fake tan. And at the show I saw, the rest of Lush kept up no problemo, it was the most natural thing in the world, like Talking Heads with special guest John Bonham. Awesome!! Anyway, for when you want spacey stuff like Lush a bit heavier, how about True Widow.


Memento Mori (Indie Recordings)
On a playlist with: Void Of Sleep, Witch, Burst
Listen Memento Mori full stream (here)

Sahg’s 2013 album Delusions Of Grandeur is the kind of low-profile album that would make you beg industry people to check them out, like when a pair of choice knockers come into view but your buds are looking the other way. You practically dislocate your shoulder nudging them to get a peek at these majestic peaks. The happy ending is that in early 2014 a fancy label released Delusions here in the US. But somehow it was like your best dude finally turned to stare at those random tits, but responded only with a signal of indifference. That is, Sahg still barely registered. Thank fuck they’re back.


Fires Within Fires (Neurot)
On a playlist with: Isis, Cult Of Luna, Coldplay
Listen Fires Within Fires full stream (here)

Usually, the reason to like a band is that their music is awesome. But some bands you’ll like for the reason that they’re amusing dudes or they share your general life vibe or you connect with them on other random stuff (like a lame movie set in a beautiful locale). But in a rare case or two, your motivation to become a fan is merely to be spared the task of regularly listening to one or more of the artist’s exasperated worshippers all freaking out over your indifference. Seriously, 20 years of this shit and you start just saying “Yeah, I totally love and respect Sonic Youth/Bruce Springsteen/The Doors/Neurosis. Can I go now?”


crownferalTrap Them
Crown Feral (Prosthetic)
On a playlist with: Nails, Young And In The Way, Glassjaw
Listen Crown Feral full stream (here)

The new Trap Them album is awesome and the best part is guitarist Brian Izzi. But it’s driving me crazy trying to put my finger on the origin of his guitar parts. Not his crazy riffs, but his looming, untethered tones that hose out atop them. Fuck, who is it that has that same vibe!! Botch, He Is Legend, Behemoth, or something?
