List (Southern Lord)
On a playlist with: All Pigs Must Die, Young And In The Way, Sepultura
Listen List full stream (here)

It’s lazy to tune out weird non-English language band names, but anybody might do that a bit. It’s a lot of work to file them correctly in your memory. There’s Urfaust, Kvelertak, Ulver, Kampfar; Neige Eternelle, Neige Et Noirceur, Scythia, and Scythian. The ones you don’t love kinda recede to the part of your brain that stores the “familiar but not reliably remembered.” I applaud dudes who can keep tons of underground bands straight (especially the European ones), but I feel that most conversations on this topic involve each speaker’s struggles to place bands — or their outright conflations. “Wait, are we talking about Nyx or Syk?” “Which one’s Dodheimsgard and which is Isengard?” “Is Varg a member of that band called Varg?” No biggie, it’s not a huge obstacle. Martyrdod shouldn’t worry about it, they’re officially on the “must-know” list via List, their new classic. You’ll worry as you listen to it that you’ll have to tweak your “Best of 2016 albums” list. No, that artwork is not upside down.

The Zodiac
On a playlist with: Painkiller, Body Stuff, Kayo Dot
Listen The Zodiac full stream (here)

You may remember the arrival of Mr. Bungle’s sophomore album in 1995. It was a bit shocking, this very long, very uncooperative representation of their advance from proggy spaz metal with awesome melodies to antagonistic avant garde. On top of that, Disco Volante is distant and dense, so it took a few listens to make you certain that it is awesome. Here in 2016, Those Darn Gnomes speaks a similar language but way less cryptically. Their new album The Zodiac doesn’t ellude your attention; it is an elephant buttfucking a bus packed with scrap metal. Beautiful. Listen to this at least once.

suffer-yourselfSuffer Yourself
Ectoplasm (Cimmerian Shade)
On a playlist with: Obsequiae, Aevangelist, Dir en grey
Listen Ectoplasm full stream (here)

The most special music results when two things happen: Something true is expressed, and it doesn’t quite resemble anything else. So as above in this week’s STCOT, here we experience a singular work of art via the title track of Suffer Yourself’s new album. Funereal, miserable, and kinda militantly expressionist, “Ectoplasm” sounds so sincere because no one would make those sounds if they could actually help it.

Born (Transcend)
On a playlist with: Coheed & Cambria, Agent Fresco, Volbeat
Listen Born full stream (here)

Of all the “types” of vocalizing, which can you tolerate the least? Is it the black metal scream, the gurgly cookie monster, the Neurosis bellow that seems to accompany a step into a bear trap? Or is it the passionate whiny art-metal guy that best makes you barf? All the heavy breathing, the entreaties, the nice clothes? The eyes squeezed shut? If so, that’s awesome because you get to derive enjoyment from albums that are totally painful to everyone else, and it’s awesome because we get to make fun of you a ton.

totten-korpsTotten Korps
Supreme Commanders Of Darkness (Blood Harvest)
On a playlist with: Boston, Tool, Terrence Malick
Listen Supreme Commanders Of Darkness full stream (here)

It’s tantalizing to hear of a band whose first demo arrived in 199o, first album in 2001, and second album in 2016. That’s glacial. Maybe the members of Chilé’s Totten Korps are perfectionists, extremely lazy, or slow to draw inspiration. Or maybe it’s that they reside in a third world nation where life is cheap and society is dominated by swine. After all, that’s what’s delaying Tool!

natvres-wrathNatvre’s
Wrath (Argento)
On a playlist with: Mínus, Lamb Ov God, Darkthrone
Listen “Lazarine” (here) “Prototype” (here)

The following is a creator of the cacophonous, infinitely oppressive new black metal gem speaking about its first cut (“Lazarine” above): “The riffing under heavy distortion is the proof that the cold Norwegian black metal riff was invented somewhere in sunny … California in the ’60s. I mean that the phrase similarity with ’60s surf rock is obvious. Just jam Del Shannon’s mega hit ‘Runaway” with your guitar, for example.” Don’t let those words break down your defenses. This is chaos.
