Shit That Comes Out Today

Sh*t That Comes Out Today: September 16, 2014


Iron Reagan - Tyrrany of Will

Hi MetalSucks reader! Welcome back to Shit That Comes Out Today, your satanic bible of each week’s heavy new releases. We list ‘em, we spotlight ‘em, we link you to their preview jams and full streams — and everybody wins. And if we missed any legit new shit, we beg you to email us! Thanks! Now crank it up!


Texas In July BloodworkTexas In July
Bloodwork (Equal Vision)
On a playlist with: Misery Signals, August Burns Red, Elitist
Listen Bloodwork full stream (here)

God, remember some years ago when the word “metalcore” was used by pig-nosed snobs to categorize anything not “super legit pure metal”? Well, Bloodwork is a giant, shit-covered axe to their faces. You can’t relegate a whole sect of respectable music to the turd pits just because of omg breakdowns and omg legato riffage and omg clean choruses. Texas In July doesn’t have the greatest track record — nobody ever considered them “up there” among the best — but this is a new phase.


Xerath - IIIXerath
III (Candlelight)
On a playlist with: Textures, Devin Townsend’s alter-alter-ego
Listen “I Hold Dominion” (here)

It’s curious how “offbeat”-sounding heavy music can call to mind Devin Townsend. Xerath is massively unlike our bald-headed warrior, but you can feel his upbeat oddball shtick that makes him so damn lovable and famous: “wall of sound” synth, super-rhythm choruses, and echoed braaaahhh screams. Xerath’s III is way darker and meaner, and that mediates the posi. Perfect.


The Contortionist - LanguageThe Contortionist

Language (eOne/Good Fight)
On a playlist with: The Haarp Machine, Structures, Volumes
Listen “Primordial Sound” (here) “Language I: Intuition” (here)

Language is a massive, hyper-progressive album from an incredible band. And while you’ll miss the bust-yer-ass sensibilities of 2012’s Intrinsic, there’s something to the lounge/connoisseur pretenses of this delightful record. Obviously, this ain’t yo momma’s or fadda’s metal; it’ll sure show them a thing or three about how far the genre has come.


Aethyr (Xtreem)
On a playlist with: Beneath The Massacre, Visceral Bleeding, Odious Mortem
Listen Aethyr full stream (here)

The only thing I love more than listening to Aethyr is saying “aethyr.” It rolls of my tongue like a hot pat of butter from a warm midnight flapjack! Fans of tech-death might miss the more classically-oriented death shit, so it’s convenient that Emeth has fully co-morgified these two to achieve a hybrid. They also burn through riffs like machine gun shells, or popcorn during the spicy sex scenes in The Secretary.


Tower of FleshTowers Of Flesh
Antithetical Conjurations (Candlelight)
On a playlist with: Funeral Throne, Binah, Theoktony 
Listen Antithetical Conjurations full stream (here)

There are two types of metal evil: 1) “omg look at us we’re so evil” with blood and guts and weird moons and knives, etc., and 2) actual evil. Antithetical Conjurations is the latter. There’s no flim-flam here, just the full-on feature: sinister blackened death. I’ve spun it two or three times already, so good.


Gust (Southern Lord)
On a playlist with: Trudger + Alpha & Omega’s lovechild
Listen Gust full stream (here)

Gust’s new album Gust is a gust of wind sweeping away the measly farts of other Swedish melo/punk-core bands. It rips and burns and then, fuck, it even gets soft! Hardcore sentimentality, it’s a thing! But what really shines is Gust’s when sounding dense, layered, and nuanced with simple instrumentation. It’s the sign of all-important Good Songwriting. Good goddamn album.
