Toadliquor - The Hortator's Lament (2003)


I feel like my last few posts have been all over the place. I think we've got the AmRep/T&G 90's noise rock thing pretty well documented here and it's hard for me to come up with anything that Shiny Grey Monotone hasn't covered already. I'm not saying there's going to be any drastic changes here but I'm trying to be less hesitant about venturing outside the box a little. So I thought I'd keep going with that and throw out a classic doom album. Well classic in my eyes anyways considering I'm quite picky about the genre and am hardly a connoisseur when it comes to dread and despair. Ha! That might be a good thing I suppose. That being said... "The Hortator's Lament" was a complete discography CD put out by Southern Lord Records in 2003 featuring their only LP "Feel My Hate, The Power Is Weight" which was released in 1993 along with singles, comp tracks etc. Slow and sludgy with it's drowned vocals buried deep in the mix. Just in time for the holidays. I might have to follow this one up with a pop record just to see if anyone's paying attention.

  4. I didn't know that SGM wanted me. It would be cool to write for a blog that had a decent following such as yours. It really is the best blog out there and the only one I follow regularly these days. Great work as always.

  5. Let's make that happen! I always am excited to see what you dig up, you have great taste, and would be an excellent addition to SGM. I'll email the main man, and see what's what.

  6. Did Ipecac ever get in touch with you in regards to posting on Shiny Grey Monotone? He lead me to believe he was, but I'm sure he's not the most organized dude on earth, so I wouldn't be surprised if he didn't.

  7. I haven't heard from him. I would be up for being an occasional contributor but don't plan on giving up on this blog. I do appreciate the interest and the offer.
