Shit That Comes Out Today

Sh*t That Comes Out Today: October 30, 2015


Hello MetalSucks reader! Welcome to the new 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 we stick ‘em in a fancy Spotify playlist too (below) — all for your jammage! Now crank this shit up!


Birds In RowBirds In Row
Personal War EP (Deathwish Inc.)
On a playlist with: Converge, Minús, Deftones
Listen Personal War full stream (here)

One of the goals of Shit That Comes Out Today is to express the amount of interest you should have in six select releases. It’s not to describe the music, but to thumbnail its significance to us and you. After all, it’s probably not helpful for you to, say, read the ingredients label on a box of Cinnamon Toast Crunch. You would be better served by access to a couple flakes and a tip that it’s an after-dinner cereal, for example. Nor do you want to hear a list of other sweet foods with cinnamon in them; you better value the knowledge that CTC fits any mood (unlike niche cereals like Grape Nuts).


All Them WitchesAll Them Witches
Dying Surfer Meets His Maker (New West)
On a playlist with: Earth, The Mars Volta, Darker My Love’s 2
Listen Dying Surfer Meets His Maker full stream (here)

Loving the new album by All Them Witches is like kissing a female MMA fighter: It’s awesome, but it might be a prelude to you kissing a man. Likewise, during Dying Surfer‘s first seconds, you may be rocked by the possibility that it’s a gateway to sad bearded guy music. Not that there’s anything wrong with that. Anyway, you love it. Crank it up!!


Nyx HomeNyx
Home (Agonia)
On a playlist with: Myrkur, Enslaved, Paradise Lost
Listen Home full stream (here)

Extreme metal, in some ways, turns away a lot of willing customers. For example: a dude in the mood for melodic vocals. In such a mood, dude must turn away from extreme shit and listen to awesome but probably less heavy music. What dude wants is metal that’s heavy as madness and singable as Cave In. (Not to be confused with “heavy as madness then singable as Cave In” like Soilwork). But Myrkur, Babymetal, and now Nyx are hacking at this deficiency in music’s most captivating movement. Let’s hope they each get heavier and hookier. The Pretenders meets Behemoth please.


Sunder (Tee Pee)
On a playlist with: Comet Control, Greenleaf, Jeremy Irons & The Ratgang Malibus
Listen “Cursed Wolf” (here) “Daughters Of The Snow” (here) “Don’t Leave It Behind” (here)

I anticipate a conversation any day now with my tiny cousin about psychedelic heavy rock like Sunder. It’ll come about the usual way: She’ll stand at my knees all poised to speak, hand in her hair. Prompted, she’ll point to the speakers that are blaring a Sunder jam and ask, “Is this stoner metal?” I’d say, “Oh peanut, you’re on the right track. But this is closer to ‘acid metal.’” With that, I’d explain that “stoner metal” is probably heavier than Sunder, more likely to focus a listener until he or she is lost in a thought. Then we’d contrast how Sunder and their ilk, meanwhile, set you up to be beset by a million thoughts at once, by a spectrum of sensations. Then we’d have some fruit snacks.


AbigailWilliams_TheAccuser_CDL535CD-1024x1024Abigail Williams
The Accuser (Candlelight)
On a playlist with: Lord Mantis, Nachtmystium, Cobalt
Listen The Accuser full stream (here)

It’s funny: Each “style” of metal that you don’t like seems to spawn innumerable bands. Every week, it seems, a few new ones pop up, all samey, clueless, and totally not your vibe. But in the “scene” that you’re super into, it seems like each band is a fascinating and distinct flower. Different fragrances, characters. The wait between releases is interminable. It’s never enough.


Grave RitualGrave Ritual
Morbid Throne (Dark Descent)
On a playlist with: Beyond, Lantern, Venefixion
Listen Morbid Throne full stream (here)

If you’re reading this capsule about Grave Ritual’s new album, then it’s likely that you overlooked a bit of info above: Morbid Throne arrives via Dark Descent Records. Or maybe you don’t know the significance of that info, that Dark Descent releases are at least great nearly always. Dependable as a bank and twice as fascinating. Good news is that now you know so reach for your volume control with one hand and click play with the other.
