Shit That Comes Out Today: Rest of 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 all for your jammage. Now crank this shit up!
Even if all you’ve heard of the new EP by Paria is the puny trailer above, you can still be super excited for its release. You’re pumped if a fan of their 2013 classic Surrealist Satanist, of course; that shit is hypnotic like a Charles Manson sucker-punch on acid. But the trailer alone is enough to excite a non-fan, not least of all thanks to Paria’s new vocalist. Crank it up!!!!
The November Harvest (Avantgarde)
On a playlist with: Cave In, Nothing, Dredg
Listen The November Harvest full stream (here)
If you asked a hundred fans to define the “metalgaze” vibe, you’d hear a hundred descriptions of its vocals as pushed back, blurry, and effects-laden. But Angela Martyr’s heavy dream pop breaks from the tradition of Jesu and Mammoth Weed Wizard Bastard — and any shoegaze band for that matter — via vocals at front center. It’s pretty profound, listen and see. Let’s nonchalantly agree to count this one for our Best Of 2017 lists.
XX vinyl, CD (Ektro)
On a playlist with: Hammers Of Misfortune, Iron Maiden, High Spirits

If I’m ever invited to a holiday dinner attended by Devin Townsend and Dawnbringer’s Chris Black, I hope I can locate the right moment to joke that we’re like the three amigos of super zen, ponderous metal guys. Only they have fans. Digital came out in February.
Veneration Of Armageddon (Dunkelheit)
On a playlist with: Archgoat, Goatwhore, Goat Semen
Listen Veneration Of Armageddon full stream (here)
Did you know that some people do not eat cilantro? They are nauseated by its scent and taste, to them it’s basically a mouthful of soft soap. That’s a shame, for these nice people miss out on a singular and memorable experience. Nothing is quite like cilantro, right? Maybe it has an equivalent in extreme metal: rough, guttural metal with scummy production. Some people just hate it, and treat it like it’s a failed attempt at “quality” metal. No, the scum bands are nailing it. Just like cilantro.
The Lucifer Principle (Avantgarde)
On a playlist with: Deiphago, Akhlys, Nightbringer
Listen The Lucifer Principle full stream (here)
“The Lucifer Principle bridges the broader works of Howard Bloom’s novel of the same title, which explores the intricate relationships among genetics, human behavior, and culture and argues that evil is a byproduct of nature’s strategies for creation and that it is woven into our most basic biological fabric.” Yes!!!!!!
When you were a kid, did you ever wonder what would happen if the Muppets rock band, Electric Mayhem, moved to France, joined a cult, and started huffing solvents? STCOT returns January 6. Have an awesome holiday and new year, thanks for reading!!!!!
