dirge featured

Prepare yourselves, mortal ones, for a mighty slab of awesome to descend upon your unworthy skull.  First arising from the industrial haze of the mid-90s, France's Dirge has shape-shifted through the past 16 years and (now) six albums to crush souls with music entirely in concert with their name. In two weeks, Dirge will see the release of Hyperion, the latest viscous headtrip to shamble its ...

BREWTAL TRUTH: Drink This Now!

Last week's Q&A with Exit-13 vocalist Bill Yurkiewicz got us thinking about Belgian beers. Actually, we're frequently thinking about Belgian beers, but this is a good time of year for drinking the the big, high-ABV ones—and there are plenty of them out there. It also made us consider the "classics" of the beer world, iconic brews that every aspiring beer geek should be familiar with. ...

Exmortus – “Foe Hammer” Video Premiere

deciblog - exmortus van

California's Exmortus blew my ears and balls back with their debut full length, In Hatred`s Flame back in 2008. The quartet seemed destined to take their prodigious talents, love of aggressive 80s-inspired metal, interest in neo-classical shred and proclivity for combining all three of those elements to the top of the then-bubbling thrash revival. Then, well, I don`t know what happened or where ...

Decibrity Playlist: Melt-Banana

Melt Banana pc Resource Graphics

Melt-Banana's last record Fetch earned a place in our top 10 of 2013. Since Kevin Stewart-Panko already asked the now duo of vocalist Yasuko "Yako" Onuki and guitarist Ichiro Agata nearly every question imaginable back in October (most importantly about their Geocities website), we weren't left with much ground that hadn't already been covered. Onuki and Agata's tunes may not be as popular in ...

Sucker For Punishment: Also Known as Heretication

This week’s a funny one, with one hugely, hugely obvious Album of the Week pick, one that’s most likely destined for my personal best metal of 2014 list. But after some real digging, I’ve found a couple other albums well worth checking out, too: a long lost reissue from a forgotten Metal Massacre band, some wonderfully filthy thrash/speed metal from Italy, a split featuring one of my ...

TRACK PREMIERE: Vices’ “Wasteland”

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

VICES 2

Hey, finally a band name AND song title combo that describes my managing editor's life. Vices play hardcore with a blues rock edge, reminiscent of Maylene and the Sons of Disaster before they started to suck. "Wasteland" will make you want to go smash some liquor bottles down by the creek real good. Their debut LP, New Breed, was mixed and mastered by Arthur Rizk (Power Trip). It doesn't come out ...

This morning we're streaming an exclusive new earthy, driving rocker from Seattle's self-described "caveman goth" heroes Constant Lovers. It is off the band's upcoming sophomore effort, a swaggering, infectious n' hearty slab dubbed Experience Feelings and, yes, the jam somehow manages to match the power of these accompanying photographs. Pre-order here. Check out another track from the ...

**Welcome to the inaugural Deciblog Film Club, where each month we’ll poll someone from the extremely extreme community at large on a handful of films that have had an impact on their lives and their art. Think of it as an opportunity for all of us to lay down the blast beats and death growls for five minutes, find a spot on the easy chair and pick up the popcorn . . . On second thoughts, ...

STREAMING: Morbus Chron “The Perennial Link”

morbuschron_deathmetal_decibel_2014

Last year Tribulation blew minds with The Formulas of Death. This year, fellow Swedes Morbus Chron are all grown up---the average age is 27.5---from 2011's Sleepers in the Rift effort. By aging a few years, refining their craft, and spreading respective wings, the Stockholmites have created a record so immersive, so penetrating, and so tuned into the things that made early '90s death metal ...
