Musk Ox: Video Premiere Part 1

By: Posted in: featured, tv, videos On: Wednesday, November 26th, 2014


What's a Musk Ox? Is it some sort of rare delicacy that your backwoods family member serves up at Thanksgiving Dinner? According to the sages at Wikipedia a musk ox is: an Arctic mammal of the family Bovidae, noted for its thick coat and for the strong odor emitted during the seasonal rut by males, from which its name derives. Alright then; it's a big creature that smells when it gets horny. ...

The Decibel Black Friday Book Buying Guide

By: adem Posted in: featured, stupid crap On: Wednesday, November 26th, 2014


For the next few weeks, the Western world will devote much of its time, energy and money to buying stuff. Mostly for other people. And all in the name of a Christian holiday. Or maybe a Jewish one. I don't think there are any Satanic holidays this time of year and if there are, I'm not totally clear on the whole gift-giving protocol. Maybe a pigs head or goat gall bladder? Regardless, if you're ...

Sucker For Punishment: Housecleaning – I Mean, Gift Guide!

By: Adrien Begrand Posted in: featured On: Wednesday, November 26th, 2014


As a Canadian I can’t help but marvel at American Thanksgiving. The sheer brilliance of it: make it a Thursday holiday, which’ll in turn compel people to take Friday off, and just like that you’ve got a four-day weekend. Unless Remembrance Day or the February statutory holiday falls on a Thursday, we don’t exactly have that experience here up north. So to my American buds, I salute your ...

From Internment to Obliteration: Jucifer’s “It Can’t Be Helped”

By: Jeff Treppel Posted in: exclusive, featured, listen On: Tuesday, November 25th, 2014


Those who follow Jucifer's twitter feed will know that they harbor some pretty strong political beliefs, but it's taken them until now to launch a full-scale assault on the very institution of democracy. District of Dystopia contains their shortest screeds to date, the duo's wall of amplifiers redirected towards grindcore instead of their usual filthy doom. Considering how grind started as a ...

STREAMING: Dellacoma “My Kinda Woman”

By: Chris D. Posted in: featured, listen On: Tuesday, November 25th, 2014


There are plenty of times when the Decibel staff will put down our Bolt Thrower, Watain, Paradise Lost, and Napalm Death LPs in favor of something more, well, rocking. If our EIC had his druthers---and he does---The Darkness might edge its way into the Hall of Fame one day. So, it stands to reason, Aussie-'Merican rockers Dellacoma have kangaroo-kicked their way onto the Deciblog with new track, ...

Lemme tell you a little story about how I offended a good number of folks in a room full of people I had just met or hardly knew. I know what you're thinking: "You're only going to tell us one story?" I know, right? Anyway, I was working. Seriously, a real job and everything. What I was doing is inconsequential, but suffice to say at the time of this incident, I was in a waiting/herding area ...

The Curious Case of Quiet v. Loud: Exclusive CityCop Stream

By: Shawn Macomber Posted in: exclusive, featured On: Tuesday, November 25th, 2014


Ever wonder what it would sound like if a screamer from one of those early nineties post-post-hardcore bands got together for a jam session with a group of flamenco musicians? Well, wonder no more. We've got Loner, the latest offering from "acoustic-core" outfit CityCop streaming below, and, love it or hate it -- yeah, we got a comments section -- the album has a pretty singular feel to it. ...

Clobberin’ Time: Sick Of It All On The Evolution Of Mosh

By: Posted in: featured, gnarly one-offs, interviews On: Monday, November 24th, 2014


This is the time of the year to acknowledge the things you're thankful for. One of the things we’re very thankful for is that we’ve been alive to experience multiple Sick Of It All shows. SOIA has long exported their brands of New York City hardcore to the world – as well as their intensely physical and unpredictable shows. A Sick Of It all show has always been an event, a place where ...

American Heritage: Album Stream and Song-By-Song Self-Deconstruction

deciblog - am heritage

I didn't realise it, but I've been a fan of American Heritage for a long time. When I say I didn't realise it, it's because the band which is split between Chicago and Atlanta haven't exactly been the most prolific of outfits since forming in 1997, have probably played fewer shows than they have releases available (11) and they themselves say, "...we're not really around anymore." That doesn't ...
