Shit That Comes Out Today: September 9, 2016

  • Anso DF

Hello MetalSucks reader! Welcome to 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 all for your jammage!


Black FuneralBlack Funeral
Ankou And The Death Fire (Iron Bonehead)
On a playlist with: Chthonic Cult, Temple Below, Zom
Listen “Ankou And The Death Fire” (here) “Gwyn ap Nudd” (here)

Some metal people seem to feel that listening to an album with rough production is like watching a movie out of focus. Or like a musician with perfect pitch being tormented by a refrigerator’s constant off-key hum. Or a priceless painting crooked behind its security glass. That type of metal fan will be so much happier once they get over that. It’s not like tempos wobble and guitars are out of tune; that’s malfunction, this is untidiness.


Faith No More reissuesFaith No More
King For A Day reissue (Rhino)
Album Of The Year reissue (Rhino)
On a playlist with: Jane’s Addiction, Talking Heads, Black Sabbath
Listen “Absolute Zero” (here) “Ashes To Ashes [Hardknox Alternative mix]” (here)

Last month, Faith No More unveiled a fancy anniversary edition of their very first album, We Care A Lot. Everything about it is pretty wonderful: It arrived on the record labels controlled by members of FNM and on the heels of a very positive new album cycle. Plus, it’d been out of print for a while, and it routes money to the pockets of original FNM vocalist Chuck Mosley. Great, right? Oh, and FNM did a pair of shows to promote WCAL‘s return with Mosley on the mic. Totally awesome vibes. This week, their old business partners have some reissues too! These represent the other end of the FNM timeline. Remixes, tons of great b-sides, but nothing that hasn’t been around.


Serpent CrownSerpent Crown
Incantations Of Vengeance
On a playlist with: Slayer’s South Of Heaven, Warbringer, Overkill’s I Hear Black
Listen Incantations Of Vengeance full stream (here)

You may be concerned about the decision-making powers of just about any metal musician. That life, now more than ever, can be desperate and enabling of the worst habits, so those who choose it must see no other choice. That means they’re wrong (ie. a better life awaits them) or it means it’s a deep need of theirs to scream for weeks at a time (ie. they’re at least a bit crazy). Feels like Serpent Crown is the latter; their new album is fanatical. I swear it feels like each song’s energy is about to take physical form and knife you between the shoulders.


Oniric Delusions (Deformeathing)
On a playlist with: Decapitated, Suffocation, God Forbid
Listen Oniric Delusions full stream (here)

Some bands have terrible luck. Take Decapitated, whose drummer died in a tourbus accident at 23. Four years later, they boarded a plane with bad landing gear that had to crash-land on its belly. Here in 2016, they’re mired in a public dispute with Earache Records over money. Then again, things may be looking up for Decapitated — they just hired a member of an awesome little band called Banisher. Judging from Oniric Delusions — one of those albums in a genre that seems so knowable yet it dazzles again and again — that’s awesome luck.


On a playlist with: Voivod, Alice In Chains, Astronoid
Listen Yin full stream (here)

Ayahuasca frontman Luke Roberts: “Our last record was much more progressive, long winded, and full of details. This is a much more fast-paced, vomitus, cathartic release of anger that is kind of childish at times, if I may speak frankly.” Yes you definitely may!!! Awesome album!


Devin Townsend Project - TranscendenceDevin Townsend Project
Transcendence (Inside Out)
On a playlist with: Katatonia, Cave-In’s Jupiter, Soilwork
Listen “Stormbending” (here) “Failure” (here)

It’s fun to make fun of super-prolific artists. It’s even funner when their albums are long as fuck. You can be like, No I don’t have time to start a family — I’m a Soilwork die-hard. Or, if you’re not a bachelor, you can propose an addition to the family home not for mother-in-law, not for hobbies, but for a massive server that stores the John Zorn discography. And so on. Devin Townsend is the most conscientious person on Earth, so we could wager that he gets this vibe about his own manic release schedule; maybe that’s why Transcendence arrives after a nearly two-year gap. If the rare wait hasn’t caused anticipation to overtake you, then consider that the album’s finale is a cover of a profoundly awesome Ween song.
