Toilet ov Hell Streaming 2nd Single of Miserist’s S/T EP (Experimental Black/Death from Australia)

MISERIST is the horrendous, gnarliest sound generating Experimental Black/Death Metal project that was previously known as Headwar and released a demo under that moniker. This heinous Australian act is to release the Self-Titled EP under Krucyator Productions, a label that has already been exalted for unleashing music of Autokrator, N.K.V.D. etc.

Taking influences from Gnaw Their Tongues, Portal, Ulcerate and Gorguts, and incorporating Noise, Drone and Industrial elements destructively with Black, Death and Doom music, the 06th tracked, unorthodoxly structured instrumental EP will be a taste of a pure extermination to the listeners.

Geraldo’s documentary The Last Great Disgrace inspired the EP.  The documentary exposes the torment and wrongdoing took place at Staten Island’s Willowbrook State School, a mental asylum and education center for children.

Toilet ov Hell Exclusively Streamed The 5th Track “Lung Rust” from the album, which can be found at this location

This is what the band member had to say regarding the track:

“I’d just watched a documentary on a mental asylum for kids, and I thought of what it would be like in there, treated like an animal, trapped in dark rooms with people that could kill you, rape you or defecate on you at any second. Just pure misery. This is what I thought of while recording these tracks and I used this as a theme for the album. It was mixed from February 2015 until March 2016, but most of the guitar was recorded in a few weeks. I was in a dark place and after seeing that documentary it just all spilled out. I added to it bit by bit, added other sounds, and everything else over time. Each track name had meaning to that. The track “Lung Rust” is basically about what the kids would’ve felt. Breathing in toxic fumes, hot air in the summer, and diseases. Feeling like they can’t breathe.”

REVIEW [Label/Distro] – Tour De Garde

Location – Quebec, Canada
Opened In: 2001
Genre – Black Metal
Format – Cassette/CD/Vinyl/T-Shirts
# Of Releases – 125+
Whether it’s the most technical death metal or the coldest primitive black metal Quebec has been the epicenter for extreme metal in Canada. Based on that ordering from a black metal label based in Quebec was a no brainer. It also helps that I am a fellow Canadian so shipping cost and time are greatly reduced.

One complaint I often have of underground distros is poorly designed websites. I can’t count how many times I’ve been on a distro’s site, been interested in release or two and then can’t find any damn way to place an order,  let alone how to contact the label.

That said, Tour De Garde does not suffer from this at all! Their website is very easy to use and order from. Clean layout. Just enough info about everything for sale. User account system that tracks previous orders. Etc. Very pro!

On December 28, 2016 I placed an order for some Pagan Hellfire, Kenaz and Akitsa CDs and a copy of Among The Ruins zine. Everything was shipped the next day and arrived January 3, 2017! It probably would have been faster as the postal system had some days off for New Years. Also included in the package was a free CD!

The only slight downside I can think of (and I am really struggling to think of any downside) is they have too much to choose from. Like ordering at a restaurant that has a 20 page menu you soon become overwhelmed. They have over 650 cassettes alone to choose from!

It would be great to be able to filter on sub-genre or country to help narrow down choices especially when you aren’t familiar with most of the bands. Having a huge selection isn’t really a complaint though. I felt like a kid in a candy store.

So, in conclusion, Tour De Garde are a fantastic label who have a huge selection (easily over 1000 products) and take their work very seriously! They deserve your support!

Rating: 9/10
