Sorry I’ve been away for a little bit, but your old boy Waldo took a little trip to his roots and hit the Amazon. I’m back now. Let’s dive right into it, shall we? The term "supergroup": well, what else would you call a band comprised of Scott Kelly, Mike Williams, Sanford Parker and Bruce Lamont?  CORRECTIONS HOUSE Last City Zero has been described by the band as four solo sets ...

Bonded by Beer crew

Great American Beer Festival, Denver, Colorado Oct. 10-12, 2013 It would be an overstatement to say that this was the Year of Metal at the Great American Beer Festival in Denver, but the handful of extreme music diehards—from TRVE, Surly, Real Ale and Three Floyds pictured above—among the 600-plus breweries present at the festival, definitely made their presence known in a big way, both ...

Okay kids, I've seen a LOT of horror movies. It's hard to freak me out. But this video FREAKS ME THE HELL OUT. That's a real woman and that's real steel through her flesh and that's her real skin stretching like that and urgh. It's way too early in the morning for Hellraiser shit. That said, for those of you who are into body modification – you don't get much more modified than what's happening ...

Monolithe: Full Album Stream!

Monolithe featured

Too many approval-stampers are content to shovel anything slow, synth-shrouded and packed with molasses-dark death growls into a funeral doom-shaped hole in the earth.  One self-important windbag (the one in charge of this Deciblog post) would suggest that “funeral doom” must actually beckon from the grave and whisper oh-so-reasonably that bathing with sharp objects is the last sane course ...

Dear Brent Burton or Scott Seward (I honestly can't remember which one of you it was): Thank you for introducing me to Earthless all those years ago, back when our magazine still had its original logo. Not only have I been able to spend the intervening time enjoying the trio's first two full-lengths and various live recordings, but I've been fortunate enough to witness the band's incredible ...

Decibel Exclusive: Tesco Vee On The Return Of The Meatmen!

MEATMEN_2012_PHOTO_CREDIT_JOE_GALL_3

Stick around long enough and you might get the things you always wanted. For some kids that's a medical degree or a wedding fit for Disney. What I wanted was to hang out with Tesco Vee, the imposing frontman of The Meatmen who made me laugh on a daily basis with juvenile sexual ripostes on albums like We're The Meatmen And You Suck. Tesco is probably the reason I own 50 band shirts and two pairs ...

Sucker For Punishment: Uh, There’s Kraut in My Metal

pazoozoo

Okay, this week was officially insane, with a wealth of good new music to investigate. Isn’t the fall release time the best? This week’s essential albums: Oranssi Pazuzu, Velonielu (20 Buck Spin): The Finnish band who unapologetically loves psychedelia (oranssi, or “orange”, a clear reference to Tangerine Dream) and The Exorcist (“Pazuzu”) has been on critics’ radar especially ...

Back at the end of July, the Canadian government quietly enacted a piece of legislative shit that, essentially overnight, made it exponentially (and in most cases, prohibitively) more expensive for bands to tour our country. Basically, where once a band consisting of anywhere between three and fourteen members would have had to collectively pay $450 for permits to play in Canada, now bands are ...

Decibel is proud to present a full album stream of the comeback Them, released by Selfmadegod and available for purchase here. After the stream check a quick q and a with drummer Ade. It's short and to the point -- just like their songs. When did you ...
