Almost exactly a year after founding guitarist Jeff Hanneman’s untimely passing at age 49, Slayer have reemerged with not only their first new studio recording in five years, but a surprising departure from their longtime label. The Big Four’s most consistent horseman -- already recognized twice in the Decibel Hall of Fame -- had been a mainstay on American Recordings for 28 long and ...

Original Trouble Drummer Releases Red Howes Beer

What's the connection between craft beer and metal? We hear this question a lot. Well, specifically, we are asked this question a lot since our craft beer book, The Brewtal Truth Guide to Extreme Beers, was published last November. For people who aren't necessarily into both things, it's hard to see the commonalities. On the most basic, simplistic level, it's pretty much just a shared aesthetic. ...

Since our Brewtal Truth column first appeared in Decibel nearly five years ago, it was inevitable that this day would one day come. All we needed was to find the perfect partner, and when we learned about Denver's TRVE Brewing Co. in 2012, we knew that they were it. So, after many bestial sacrifices, summonings, invocations and, uh, some really intense fermentation, we present the Decibrew, the ...

We weren't surprised to find out that one of the people involved with efforts to place a gigantic Baphomet statue on the Oklahoma Capitol grounds is connected with extreme metal. I guess we're just happy that they are pursuing their goals through civil discourse rather than pulling a Burzum. Brian Werner is a High Priest in the Satanic Temple, based in New York. He's also the vocalist of Vital ...

The day Christians have long feared, the day that would part the Heavens and kick-start the apocalypse, is upon us. In the unsuspecting locale of Oklahoma City, a group of enterprising Satanists is working (not via hex or spell, mind you, but the legitimate channels of public policy) to place a gigantic statue of Baphomet on the Capitol grounds. Their seven-foot version -- which includes several ...
