Die With Scars: Mike Hill On Fight Club

By: justin.m.norton Posted in: featured, gnarly one-offs On: Wednesday, July 23rd, 2014

2

This week brought the news that a Fight Club sequel (in comic book form) is forthcoming. We aren't sure if this will work out for the best but it seemed like an ideal time to revisit a book and movie that inspired many. Mike Hill of Tombs has embraced the book's underlying ideal: that you need to create something worth living outside of consumer culture. Hill is certainly doing that: he is ...

It's like eight zillion degrees in Philly today, so in the spirit of delusional wishful thinking, we're telling ourselves that October 18 is riiiiiiiiight around the corner. October 18, of course, being the date of our "Decibel Takes Manhattan (and Brooklyn)" 10th anniversary shows, in which we'll be wearing light jackets and merrily thrashing our way through Manhattan's Best Buy Theater (for ...

Sucker For Punishment: Le Doom

By: Adrien Begrand Posted in: featured On: Wednesday, July 23rd, 2014

monarch

It’s a fairly eventful week, thanks in large part to Season of Mist and Prosthetic using this week as a dumping ground for several new releases. Considering next week is a bit on the slower side, wouldn’t it have been a better idea to spread things around more? Give an album a chance to stand out more as opposed to simply being lost in the shuffle this week, perhaps? But if that’s how they ...

TRACK PREMIERE: Kaine’s “The Wanderer”

By: Jeff Treppel Posted in: exclusive, featured, listen On: Tuesday, July 22nd, 2014

kaine

Their name is Kaine and the song is called "The Wanderer," so the nerd in me wants to say that this UK band named themselves after the  classic TV series Kung Fu – but their name is spelled differently and also they look like they are about 16 and oh God I'm old. Anyway, there's some serious classic metal thunder going on here. Young or not, Kaine have clearly studied under the Masters of the ...

A389 Recordings is the most dangerous record label in America, period. Those who doubt it will have a tough time accounting for the 2014 A389 Digital Mixtape/Sampler, an utter beast of a collection featuring fifty-plus salvos from such sinister extreme music heavyweights such as Integrity, Bloodlet, Ringworm, Weekend Nachos, The Black Dahlia Murder, Iron Reagan, and Noisem, alongside a slew ...

Overkill has been on an absolute tear since Ironbound (2010), and the unrelenting down n' dirty thrash of the band's latest excellent sneering scream from the gutter White Devil Armory -- out tomorrow! -- ably proves this string of second -- third? -- wind triumphs is no fluke. Which is why it is such a great honor to debut the video for "Bitter Pill" below... Enjoy! Previous video for ...

darkfortress_blackmetal_decibel_2014

** Germany's Dark Fortress have plied black metal's murky, obsidian-colored waters for the better part of 20 years. In that time, they've crafted seven full-length, all of which have gone on to acclaim and recognition. Unlike most bands, Dark Fortress haven't played it easy across their varied discography. They've experimented, tried new ways to mold the dark into their own visage, and have, ...

generic waldo

The dog days of August are almost upon us and, man, this parrot is wiltin’. Anyway, not too much for me to get excited about this time around, but you know, read for yourself and find out. "Consistent" is a good word to describe OVERKILL’s White Devil Armory. I mean, this band DOES change, and they’ve been through a lot in their career -- changing times, age, members leaving -- but ...

deciblog - gillis live

A couple months ago, I introduced you to Winnipeg death metal outfit Psychotic Gardening here. In the search for additional and interesting content for this here spot on this here blog, I was altered to the fact that vocalist Chris "Gillishammer" Gillis' dayjob was as a gravedigger! As soon as I heard that, I immediately did the most logical thing and rustled up a bunch of email questions to ...
