So...here's one of those times when you actually can go ahead and judge an album by its cover: Friday the 13th obsessives Death Curse play nasty, fuzzy, stripped down death n' roll and the band isn't really isn't inclined to do fuck-all to pretty it up for anyone outside the horror metal cult. We've got an exclusive track from the upcoming debut on Razorback Records later this year. Get ...

** Hall of Famers Emperor are celebrating the 20th anniversary of black metal classic, In the Nightside Eclipse. As part of our journalistic duties, we couldn't pass up a chance to talk to icon/good guy Ihsahn about two decades of black fucking metal and why this time Emperor are taking the stage with them to the grave. What prompted you to re-start Emperor this time? Sure, In the Nightside ...

STREAMING: Saturn “So, You Have Chosen Death”

By: Chris D. Posted in: featured, listen On: Friday, July 25th, 2014

Retro is cool. Retro is where the girls are at. Retro is where the dollars are at. If you're retro, you've got it made. Unless you're in the business of retro heavy metal. Then, you just get the girls. Just ask Swedes Saturn. With just a few strums of their throwback axes and bygone haircuts, they hook in the ladies. Actually, we have no idea about their womanizing abilities. But we do know the ...

Throw Me a Frickin’ Label Hack (NOISE Edition II): Christopher S. Feltner

Me3

It’s been a good month for celebrating the noisier side of the extremely extreme.  All good things must end… though it’s hard to believe that we won’t be revisiting gritty, shadowy, unfettered sound in the future, if only here on the Deciblog. To round out the month of noise, we spoke to Virginia-based Christopher S. Feltner about his own journey through recordings and performance.  ...

Raw Power is Coming to America Again! Why So Glum Chum?

By: kevin.stewart-panko Posted in: featured, interviews, tours On: Thursday, July 24th, 2014

raw power

In addition to holding the illustrious (or dubious) honour of being one of my personal favourite bands of all time, Italy’s Raw Power is undoubtedly one of the most enduring and consistent hardcore punk bands to emerge from the world of hardcore punk. They formed in 1981 (with roots going back to the late 70s), have eleven awesome full-lengths comprising their extensive discography (yes, even ...

Tombs’ Mike Hill: Hot Coffee Machine

By: mr ed Posted in: exclusive, featured, interviews On: Thursday, July 24th, 2014

Hill 2

Because Tombs frontman Mike Hill loves work and HATES sleep, he recently started his own company, Savage Gold Coffee, in an effort to completely eradicate the latter from everyone’s life. Their inaugural brew, Savage Gold Prime, is available for order here now. While presumably starin’ at the walls, Hill gave us the scoop. I’m guessing you are a daily coffee drinker, correct? Mike ...

Misery Index is no stranger to these playlists. In fact, we were in the midst of winter 2013 when bassist/vocalist Jason Netherton regaled us with "bleak tunes that recall those snowbound blizzards from yesteryear." This time around, guitarist Mark Kloeppel went in a totally different direction to get you in the know about "hard" jams. We'll let him take things from here: "'Hard' is a special ...

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 ...
