municipalwaste_thrash_decibel_2013

Municipal Waste are no strangers to Decibel-land. Having performed admirably at our 100th Issue show, appeared as chefs on the cover of issue #89 [available HERE] and earned an honorable place on Albert’s mancave mantle, the Virginia-based thrashers are, well, like family. When Scion A/V approached us to air an exclusive interview with the Wastoids—in celebration for their second ...

Catuvolcus-internet-3

Catuvolcus, those purveyors of anthemic historical metal, have been waking ancient Gallic spirit from their home in Warwick for the past six years.  In that time, they've dropped an EP and two full-length records.  Decibel's only exposure to their sound has been through Gergovia, the band's second album, and it's a heavy-as-hell burner of a record.  The music bristles with ...

deciblog - Grandfather-1024x682

Featuring ex-members of Family and probably some other bands, Brooklyn's Grandfather is currently riding a wave churned by positive recommendations from the likes of Steve Albini (who engineered the band's Why I'd Try debut), Spin Magazine, Brooklyn Vegan and a bunch of other press outlets that people apparently pay rapt attention to. Album number two, titled In Human Form, just dropped a couple ...

One-time cover stars Pelican hail from Chicago, metropolis of the Great Lakes states.

The Deciblog Interview: Jack Grisham

By: justin.m.norton Posted in: featured, interviews On: Wednesday, August 14th, 2013

American-Demon

Jack Grisham’s place in the world of punk and extreme music is secure. In the early 80s, he was the volatile frontman of T.S.O.L. (True Sounds Of Liberty), a band that along with Black Flag and the Circle Jerks defined southern California hardcore. He handled vocals on their debut EP and the eternal classic Dance With Me (he is credited on the back cover as Alex Morgan). After appearing in ...

"The idea came from a discussion over a beer or two with a friend about Primordial possibly doing a set of epic Bathory tracks to commemorate our 20th anniversary," says steelheart Alan Averill on the origins of Twilight of the Gods. "I realized this was pretty unlikely so he more or less made me a bet to put a band together and do exactly that so I cast the net out and here we are a couple of ...

by Kim Kelly Earlier this year, it seemed as though Canadian black/death Satanists Weapon were still at the top of their game. 2012 saw the release of Embers and Revelations, their most ambitious album to date and their debut for heavyweight label Relapse. They’d hit the road for a successful North American tour with Marduk and 1349, and endured the dissolution of a proposed ...

Here are the two main things you need to know about Kharkiv, Ukraine's future sleaze rock superstars John Gält: 1. The band's superb debut full-length Served Hot is a brash, hook-filled throwback to hard rock's better days, marrying a bit of Motörhead aggro and Priest-y chug-soar-chug to an old school Mötley Crüe swagger n' sneer. It is pure, unapologetic rock n' roll rebellion created by ...

Three guys in pig masks? While we’d like to think that Purify the Horror were channelling the heist scene from BMX Bandits when they were working on their aesthetic, but it’s probably the whole anonymity thing that they were going for. Apart from the mortal threats issued during said bank job, the “Australian Goonies” doesn’t share too much artistic common ground with this enigmatic ...
