Shit That Comes Out Today

Sh*t That Comes Out Today: June 4, 2013

  • David Lee Rothmund

MIrthless A Dirge For Your Suicide

Dafuq is up? Hope you got some time to burn today, cause in many of these sexy links below you’ll find full album streams! This is for extra-serious, extra-wet earhole fucking. And that’s kind of what Shit That Comes Out Today is about, right? Throwing tons of new jams your way to keep you fat and happy for the next seven days. Anyway, I apologize sincerely for the new Megadeth album. But never fear, in one week, you’re gonna have a new The Black Dahlia Murder album to cure your wounds! In the meantime, click away below!


Death Valley Driver Graveyard DeadDeath Valley Driver
Graveyard Dead (Diminished Fifth)
On a playlist with: Burn the Priest, Watch Them Die, High On Fire
 Graveyard Dead full stream (here)

Wait, is that Randy Blythe? A quick Google search reveals that, no, Blythe hasn’t been moonlighting for any doomy/stoner/thrashy bands recently. But I still swear that’s him in Death Valley Driver, just more, uh, Canadian! So the vocals are raw and dagnasty and damn good. But so is everything else — a great concoction of pummeling fuzz breakdowns and dramatic interlude. Think of it as the lovechild of Burn The Priest and High On Fire. Burn the Fire? High on Priest? Death Valley Driver. Lots of death-related stuff here, which is kind of metal, so I hear. Check out “Crimson Mask” if you’re short on time, cause it’s fuckin’ hay-o sexy. If you’ve got a Tuesday to burn, run the whole album. It shan’t disappoint.


Darkall Slaves Abysses Of SeclusionDarkall Slaves
Abysses Of Seclusion EP (Kaotoxin)
On a playlist with: Cannibal Corpse, Beneath the Massacre, not Megadeth
Abysses Of Seclusion full stream (here)

France has their shit together. And Abysses might be the heaviest thing to come from the land of croissants and Eiffel, since, well, I don’t know — figure that shit out in the comments below! But get a listen at the link above, because if you want the archetype of whatever “extreme metal” is, it’s here. You know it when you hear it. And it’s as packed with unnecessary breakdowns, blastbeats, and god-killing riffage as the new Megadeth album is with rotten turds. The only sad news is that it’s three tracks long. Which makes me want more, more, more, cause every glorious second is no holds barred. In my book, no flimflam = big fuckin’ smile. And I like to smile.


Shoot The Girl First Follow The CloudsShoot The Girl First
Follow The Clouds (Artery)
On a playlist with: Betraying The Martyrs, Casino Madrid, Death Of An Era
Listen Follow The Clouds full stream (here)

Horrible advice if you want to get laid, Shoot The Girl First nestles snugly into electro-whatever-smashcore with their newest jam. The clean choruses and dancy interludes are lame, but there are some decent heavy tracks: Parts of “Autumn Skies” remind me of The Algorithm, “Give & Take” has awesome uplifting feels, and “Rest In Pieces” has some snick snare work. Anyway, Follow The Clouds isn’t for purists — I know it’s a hard sell. But in a genre polluted by crab-shitting dance moves and drooling teenagers, Shoot The Girl First sounds relatively mature and appreciable by those who are able to uncross their arms and get down. Uh, plus there’s a chick in the band!


Set and Setting - EquanimitySet And Setting
Equanimity (Science of Silence)
On a playlist with: If These Trees Could Talk, Constants, Isis
Listen “Spiraling Uncertainties” (here)

Of today’s releases, Equanimity is the odd man out: It’s so gentle and nuanced that it materializes in your brain in such a way that you think you’ve heard it a thousand times before. It’s not repetitive or copycat. It moves almost painfully slowly in an upward progression toward a sexual climax. Constantly edging, always familiar. It’s also one of those albums which works so well without vocals; in fact, vocals would just smear the painting. There’s a sense that you can feel the soft edge on each and every brushstroke: All the time and talent put into creating this album, like you’re in some kind of weirdo-psychic communication with The Creators. And when an album makes me feel like that, I buy that fucker and hold it close.


Liferuiner Future RevisionistsLiferuiner
Future Revisionists (InVogue)
On a playlist with: Bury Your Dead, Throwdown, Born From Pain
Listen Future Revisionists full stream (here) “Dreamcatcher” (here)

For an especially heavy hardcore-sounding jam with feely-feel lyrics, Liferuiner can get real super-quick and throw it down. Future Revisionists is like that. The single “Dreamcatcher” has a huge Bury Your Dead-esque opening riff, and then it gets wicked thrashy, and then it blows into a chorus, and then finally into a monster breakdown. Then it flows out on uplifting chords and tempo-reduced drumming. You might be thinking, “So, yeah it’s the standard formula. The Cheerios of hardcore.” And it kind of is, but in a weird and good way it fulfills your needs but leaves you wanting more. Like a dash of sugar, perhaps. 


Voices From The Human Forest Create A Fuge Of Imaginary RainVoices
From The Human Forest Create A Fuge Of Imaginary Rain (Candlelight)
On a playlist with: Akercocke, Belphegor, Sacramentum
Listen “Unawareness Of Human Emotion” (here)

Dat snare. Dat snare. God, I can’t stop listening to it. Each time I run through “Unawareness Of Human Emotion,” that snare sticks in my side like a prison shank. But I love it — I love how it comes in between the quick fills and vocal shifts. I love how it kind of wraps up the entire package like some fancy red string on your Christmas presents. And if it was anywhere near Christmas, I’d be asking for a copy of this album from Satan Claus. It’s wicked and actually kind of fucking sick, but it just doesn’t stop. And whatever is happening at 2:40 in “Unawareness,” I’ve never heard something like that before. The vocals and guitars drain out and are replaced with some gentle acoustic shit, but the evil drumming keeps going. I love this shit. Get it.
