Shit That Comes Out Today: November 4, 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. Now crank this shit up!


Fra Doden Fodes Liv (Via Nocturna)
On a playlist with: Darkthrone, Enslaved, Emperor
Listen Fra Doden Fodes Liv full stream (here)

Hi MetalSucks reader, happy Friday! This week, a loved one of mine has suffered from a nasty cough; I’ve been treated to the sound of lungs abrading, of a wounded, freaked-out night animal that you didn’t see crouched feet away from your door, of the Babadook ffs. I feel for her, but mostly it kills me that we’re not recording her respitory dry heaves and then adding them to some cosmic black metal tracks. It’d be the BM equivalent of Obituary or it could be divisive like Inquisition. Might take some getting used to — unlike Uburen and their timeless, instant viking classics. Awesome!!!!


Habits (Revalve)
On a playlist with: Genesis’ Abacab, Glassjaw, Dream Theater
Listen Habit full stream (here)

MYR goes everywhere. Their album Habits starts like a ’90s INXS album, then assumes the shapes of Tool with a Euro accent or Voivod with a keyboard player. Next, a full-blast four-part harmony burst, a King Diamond-style interlude of accusation, a hook that would embarass Green Day and Iron Maiden. Clean as Cairo or the Symphonic Music of Yes, heavier than Katatonia. Extreme metal Faith No More and System Of A Down on prog. Ask what is MYR to be answered “Well, when?”


Death Tunes (Karisma)
On a playlist with: Alter Bridge, Baroness, Anthrax’s We’ve Come For You All
Listen Death Tunes full stream (here)

Of today’s sixty-something heavy new releases, Tiebreaker’s snazzy Death Tunes probably doesn’t land atop your priority list. That is, unless you encounter its vigorous endorsement on Screaming Guitars, which, for starters, notes Death Tunes‘ “deep throbbing passion for the almighty riff” and the way singer Thomas Espeland Karlsen “belches out a range of ardent cries [and] melancholic rasps of fury [throughout] a concept album of sorts with ‘Death’ as the focal point. Don’t worry though; we’re not talking death metal … The energy is potent and the vibes are rock and roll to the core.”


Beyond Flesh – Beyond Matter – Beyond Death (Saturnal)
On a playlist with: Tribulation, The Devil’s Blood, Watain
Listen Beyond Flesh – Beyond Matter – Beyond Death full stream (here)

Decibel on Kyy’s new debut album: “Kyy has taken in Sarcofago’s third-world brutality, Watain’s manic tempo and melodic sensibilities, and Beherit’s ugliness, worshiped it, and then blew it all apart to form a sound that’s distinctly Kyy.”


pretty-maidsPretty Maids
Kingmaker (Frontiers)
On a playlist with: Def Leppard, Zebra, Horse The Band
Listen “Heaven’s Little Devil” (here)

Have you ever encountered the old Pretty Maids song “Future World”? It’s puzzling. For starters, it’s the most tense song ever, like a bloody butthole clenched around Don Dokken’s fist. And secondly, I kinda don’t “get” vocalist Ronnie Atkins. At first, his voice is awesome like Zebra’s Randy Jackson and Mike Howe from Metal Church. But then it turns out he’s got two voices; at the pre-chorus of “Future World,” Atkins switches to a scream-sing, like super-constipated Tom Keifer or Udo Dirkschneider’s nuts in a beartrap. I’ve heard the jam a few dozen times and it still makes me flinch.


Metal To The Bone (Godz ov War)
On a playlist with: Bonehunter, Bathory, Motorhead
Listen Metal To The Bone full stream (here)

What’s the most stressful part of living a life of Metal here in November 2016? Is it the usual social stuff, like living with the weird reactions and tight explanations? Or is it our culture’s new lows, like a band holding a gun to its own head and its hands out for your donations? Or one of our best magazine’s addiction to enabling guys who get a charge out of doing racist shit? Is it the absence of Lemmy? Warfist is right there with you on “Metal To The Bone,” not the first pro-metal anthem but maybe the darkest. Its vocalists — Warfist’s own plus three guests — sound less like your brothers in arms than dudes about to break your arm. See also Profanal (below).
