Shit That Comes Out Today

Sh*t That Comes Out Today: March 31, 2015

Hi MetalSucks reader! Welcome to a very special 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 starting today, we stick ’em in a fancy Spotify playlist for your jamming. Hold your applause, for it’s not our idea (kinda like that Hollywood Undead image up there). But it’s an awesome idea, so six cheers to MetalSucks commenter SoTotesAppropes. Hurrah! Now crank this shit up! 


The Myth Of Mankind (I, Voidhanger)
On a playlist with: Castevet, As We Draw, Downfall Of Gaia
Listen The Myth Of Mankind full stream (here)

Just like its album artwork, The Myth Of Mankind is a mixture of everything: sludge, doom, and blackened metal + the kitchen sink. Okay, no kitchen sink on the album cover (instead, a skinless due holding a melted face) — but definitely lots of cool factor. And it’s cool factor on which Antagoniste banks. You may call it avant-garde, but ya don’t pick up on any ill-fated pretension other “mix ’em up” bands suffer from.


Irreversible Mechanism - Infinite FieldsIrreversible Mechanism
Infinite Fields (Blood)
On a playlist with: Beyond Creation, Fallujah, Obscura
Listen “The Betrayer Of Time” (here) “Infinite Fields” (here)

Onlly since last year’s Fallujah album have I been so stoked about a more symphonic tech-death album! Infinite Fields is a million parts Soreption-level riffage + another million parts quality songwriting. It’s the latter that actually sells, all the tempo shifts, interludes, and acapella! (Plus pro drumming by former drummer of The Faceless, Lyle Cooper.) A kickass debut album.


Ecate (Neurot)
On a playlist with: Bongripper, YOB, Electric Wizard
Listen Ecate full stream (here)

If you didn’t know that Ufomammut has been making albums since 2000, then Ecate is your warning. They write the most rockable doom tunes this side of its playlist buddies! Despite the trippy album art and jam-bandish songs, Ecate is never so stoned that it stumbles on its way to the bathroom or dribbles when it tries to eat a yogurt cup with a fork.


United States Of Mind (Memorial)
On a playlist with: Scars Divide, Killswitch Engage, God Forbid
Listen United States Of Mind full stream (here)

Decent metalcore albums are rare birds, and the Madagascar pochards these days sound less and less like the early 2000s ‘core that hooked many of us on metal! United States Of Mind is a reminder that old-school, riff-centered metalcore can sound modern, even with questionable vocals. Blah, though, the vocals do hinder Entail’s effort, but let not that distract you from the solid songwriting behind the noise!


Blackout (Riding Easy)
On a playlist with: Eyehategod, Naam, Elder
Listen Blackout full stream (here)

When psychedelic rock goes post-modern! Fans of experimentation rejoice because Blackout has a try-one/try-all philosophy. Fans of spacey, moody, salty albums than can be jammed while, say, you’re at work or watching internet porn can also rejoice. But the most rejoicing, I predict, will be reserved for Blackout’s vocals: I love their bomb-out, heavy-echo approach!


terra untitledTerra
Untitled (Hibernacula)
On a playlist with: Caïna, Deathspell Omega, Velnias
Listen Untitled full stream (here)

Untitled lives on the crunchier, eviler side of black metal’s River Styx. Instead of the polished annihilation of bands like Krallice or Dimmu, you get paper-crumpling fuzz and jams suited for a dim, smoky bar rather than a pit of eternal darkness. Oddly, Terra’s foreboding and terrifying vocals recapture some of that sinfulness. No words!
