By: Chris D. Posted in: featured, listen On: Friday, October 31st, 2014

flightofsleipnir2_doommetal_decibel_2014

The Flight of Sleipnir aren't your typical doom-stoner-folk metal outfit. Actually, the fusion of folk with stoner is incongruous. And doom folk is a rare breed unto itself. So, it's with keen interest The Flight of Sleipnir spearhead this relatively new combo of genres on new album, V. Actually, the Colorado-based duo aren't new. Sure, they weren't around when Slayer looked like girls (just ...

Heavy Metal Horror Roundtable: Trap Them Meets Fangoria!

By: Shawn Macomber Posted in: featured, gnarly one-offs On: Friday, October 31st, 2014

Trick or Treat 9

Horror and metal. Metal and horror. One couldn't quit the other even if it wanted to. Which, as anyone who has attended either a horror con or metal show recently can attest, neither does. Except maybe those djent dudes whose non-role-playing-game media consumption is limited mostly to scouring Nova physics + math specials for potential new riff patterns and humorlessly waiting to pounce on ...

Stream New Septic Mind Album

Any fan of majestic extreme doom should make (geological) time to get familiar with Russian label Solitude Productions.  If you like four-minute songs just fine, but your salivary glands kick into overdrive for tracks that leave the eleven-minute mark in the dust, you're the target market.  It's easy to get lost in to celestial movements dragged into being by bands like Waters of Lethe, The ...

Earlier this month, I re-introduced you to Graham Williams, the man essentially responsible for procuring the across-the-board talent for FunFunFunFest, the annual party that's taken place in Austin each year of the past eight. Not only is Williams a prolific promoter/booker with a seemingly inexhaustible knowledge of what the hell is going on in every scene from extreme music and indie rock to ...

A Very Heavy Halloween: Alice Cooper DVD Contest!

unnamed-1

Alice Cooper famously refuses to even broach the idea of maybe someday retiring and if there's one thing the ridiculously epic mash-up of career-spanning fist-in-the-air anthems and grandiose dark carnival theatrics so exquisitely captured on Raise The Dead -- Live From Wacken makes clear it's that there's abso-fucking-lutely no reason on earth he should pull the plug anytime soon. In honor of ...

We have a lot of love for Bastard Feast around these parts. Adrien Begrand lauded the band's latest album, Osculum Infame, in his Sucker for Punishment column, Dan Lake interviewed the quintet earlier this summer and the Oregonians snagged a local spot opening for Carcass and company on this year's Decibel tour. Now with the group set to hit the road for a month starting tomorrow, guitarist ...

Thou’s Heathen: Studio Report Outtakes

In early 2013, Thou vocalist Bryan Funck sent us wonderful responses on the writing and recording of Thou's 2014 album Heathen. The issue: we only had enough space for our customary studio report and had to cherry pick details. As people begin to consider their best-of lists Heathen will doubtless be one of the albums that makes short lists. We decided to dust off Funck's responses and give them ...

The buzz, my friends, is justified. Metalhead, the "dark, intense drama of loss, faith, redemption, and heavy metal" from acclaimed Icelandic director Ragnar Bragason, is a gorgeous, harrowing, touching, and, despite its black metal grim moments, ultimately, uplifting piece of tour de force filmmaking with a soundtrack that previously only existed in the dreams of trve-ly cultivated ...
