Sh*t That Comes Out Today: July 7, 2015
Hello MetalSucks reader! Welcome to a very special Shit That Comes Out Today, your satanic bible of this week’s heavy new releases: the final Tuesday STCOT ever! We list ‘em, we spotlight ‘em, we link you to their preview jams and full streams — and now, we stick ‘em in a fancy Spotify playlist too (below) — all for your jammage. And we’ll do it again on Friday! Now crank this shit up!
Luonnon Harmonia Ja Vihreä Liekki (Svart)
On a playlist with: Kaaos, Nachtmystium, Rattus
Listen Luonnon Harmonia Ja Vihreä Liekki full stream (here)
Powerful. Strange. Finnish. Those three things alone would make Luonnon Harmonia Ja Vihreä Liekki an undeniably sexy album — and so they do! Abyssion occupies the far-away lands of post-rock/black metal. You get blastbeats and atmospheric vocals, but also this oddly satisfying head-bop groove. Psychedelics recommended/reinforced.
Horrifying Nightmares (Xtreem)
On a playlist with: Enabler, Undead Creep, Autopsy
Listen Horrifying Nightmares full stream (here)
Old school death/thrash should always be welcome in any playlist — especially when fresh-ass guitars are involved. The third track “Horrifying Nightmares Of Flesh And Blood” is a perfect example: a massive opening lead which then (d)evolves into spastic punch-you goodness! Fans of anything grimy and classic will dig.
Memento Mori (Kaotoxin)
On a playlist with: Kjeld, Moonreich, Akhlys
Listen Memento Mori full stream (here)
You’d be remiss to not spend some time in the darker side of black metal, cuddling up with incessant synth, blasphemous guitar solos, and an over-tracked snare. Memento Mori isn’t as sophisticated as its playlist buddies, but it matches in terms of energy. And that’s really what matters!
Absolution (20 Buck Spin)
On a playlist with: Pallbearer, Samothrace, Yob
Listen Absolution full stream (here)
With a seemingly unending supply of dark, fuzzy bands who utilize dark, fuzzy vocals, it’s nice to hear some contrast courtesy of clean vocals. The fuzz on Absolution is overwhelming, and with (wholly) dirty vocals it would muddy up the game. Instead, you get from-the-mountaintops clean wails and plenty of doomy pretenses. A really thick listen with a lot to digest, plus some killer album art.
Unleash The Archers
Time Stands Still (Napalm)
On a playlist with: BYAAAAHHHHH!!!
Listen “Tonight We Ride” (here)
Any Mad Max lovers will love the aesthetic of this “Tonight We Ride” music video. The core-downs and hyperspace vocals might be a tougher sell, but hey, it’s the thought that counts! You get a chick and her band dudes dressed in post-apocalyptic garb rocking hairy, hairy, hairy, power metal in the desert.
Bong Hit Hospitalisation (Gore House)
On a playlist with: GWAR + Lord Mantis + Bozo The Clown
Listen “Interested Is Not The Word” (here)
It’s never fair to judge a band by their name, but these guys are called Party Cannon, and their album is called Bong Hit Hospitalisation. Alas, you might expect some party-tastic horsing around, but instead you get fuck-you-up grindcore. Tour posters featuring Party Cannon are equally as ridiculous — the music isn’t that great, but props for standing out in a sea of serious-business metal font.
