By: jonathan.horsley Posted in: featured, listen On: Monday, June 10th, 2013

SCRATCH N SNIFF

Courtesy of the good people at Safety Meeting Records, here is some fresh sludge in the form of the title track of Stone Titan's forthcoming debut LP, Scratch N' Sniff. Okay, so those of you who are familiar with the underground scene in South Windsor, Connecticut, may well know all about the trio's trippy sludge. But, for the rest of us who are not quite as clued up on The Nutmeg State's ...

STREAMING: Scale the Summit’s “The Migration”

By: Jeff Treppel Posted in: featured, listen On: Monday, June 10th, 2013

2013-large-WEB

Scale the Summit are pretty much the epitome of the hoary old cliché "nothing ventured, nothing gained." After all, who would've thought that playing instrumental prog rock in the 21st century would be a remotely sane move, much less a valid career path? it seems to be working pretty well for them  – although it helps that, unlike a lot of their fellow Musicians Institute alumni, they can ...

** The "Wild Hunt" listening party was held at Duff's in Brooklyn, New York on June 8th. Century Media hosted, with Erik Danielsson acting as infernal master of ceremonies. The track-by-track review was written on first listen at Duff's. Track 1: "Night Vision" Big slow intro build. Heavy metalesque segue, twin harmonic leads cutting the dirty distortion. Tympani drums signal the oncoming ...

Tales From the Metalnomicon: John Edward Lawson

time-enough-at-last1

Welcome to Tales From the Metalnomicon, a twice-monthly column delving into the surprisingly vast world of heavy metal-tinged/inspired literature and metalhead authors... Reading the work of Raw Dog Screaming Press founding editor/bizarro author extraordinaire John Lawson might be best described as taking a very scenic shortcut into an Altered States-esque surrealist landscape without having ...

By: Dan Lake Posted in: featured, listen On: Friday, June 7th, 2013

How many extreme-minded riff lovers do you think headed to the Deciblog today for a treatise on classical piano composition?  Not the standard purview of a magazine proclaiming the virtues of black-thrashing terror, I’ll grant you, but this spring Forbidden Records has brought us an album that, by all outward signs, should be a lo-fi Satanic hymnal but turns out to be 45 minutes of haunting, ...

Get a Van for Getting in the Van: An Interview with Greenvans Owner Andrew Reitz

By: kevin.stewart-panko Posted in: featured, interviews, uncategorized, videos On: Thursday, June 6th, 2013

deciblog - greenvans

I don't exactly remember how I stumbled across Greenvans, but if Andrew Reitz had been offering the use of 15-passenger vans at affordable rates exclusively to touring bands, it would have made my touring life a fuck of a lot easier. I would have avoided doing month long tours in minivans out of necessity, for one thing. It's about time there was a service that won't nickel and dime you on milage ...

A Haphazard Chronicle of Cobalt’s First (And Last?) Tour: Part II

day1-stage2

by Kim Kelly Richmond We’ve got a super-short drive today, so we wasted as much time as possible before hopping back in the van and firing up The 40-Year-Old Virgin. Josh brought along a bunch of brainless DVDs, so between those and Michael’s unwavering dedication to picking on Josh, it went quickly. Richmond is a great city and tons of awesome people call it home, so we were all ...

Decibrity Playlist: Howl

Andrew Fladeboe 1

While bands seem to really like doing these playlists, there is one theme that has become prevalent over the last 18 months: what gets listened to in the van while on tour. We've had the likes of Ufomammut, Intronaut, BATILLUS, Anciients and Kowloon Walled City (Side A of their list being my personal favorite) tell us about what helps them get through endless drives in what I can only imagine ...

STREAMING: Pest “Faced Obscured By Death”

By: Chris D. Posted in: featured, listen On: Wednesday, June 5th, 2013

pest_blackmetal_decibel_2013

I think I've said it before and I think I'll have to say it again. Black metal, on the Deciblog, isn't represented fairly. Why? I'll leave that question up for Lord Belial (or one of his cronies) to answer. Nevertheless, the Deciblog needs more black. Whether it's shiny black, flat black, or none more black, times like these---hot, humid, summer shit---need more fuel to Hell's eternally burning ...
