VIDEO PREMIERE: From Hell “Holy War”

By: Chris D. Posted in: featured, videos On: Monday, October 28th, 2013


Michigan's From Hell is the latest quality act from the Motor City. Self-described as d-beat meets thrash meets goth, From Hell's Dischange-covering-Converge-with-Boss-HM-2s-hooked-up-for-maximum-effect is right down our proverbial plate. The group's new full-length, Heresy, has been out since June, but From Hell are just now premiering---thanks to Paper+Plastick Records---the video for Heresy's ...

** We make it no secret we're fans of My Dying Bride. From their Hall of Fame induction to innumerable citations in pages and blogs, My Dying Bride has appealed to our inner and outer miser for an age or two. Well, this session was originally sent off to My Dying Bride in June, hoping to get a scoop on the group's Maryland Deathfest announcement, but since this is doom we had to wait until ...

It's not even officially "out" (even though you can already download it if you have a digital subscription), but we're already getting heat via Twitter for our new Brewtal Truth column in issue #110 where we take to task metal bands for flying the flag for Coors Light in their band promo photos. In one such Tweet directed at yours truly, @TheMRod offered the following defense of the Silver ...

January 19th will go down in Decibel history as an auspicious moment. Chief “dude” Albert Mudrian gleefully assembled a wicked cast of artists---(black) starring Evoken, Municipal Waste, Tombs, Pig Destroyer, Repulsion, and Converge---to perform, ever so thankfully, to an audience of Decibel readers, haters, and otherwise jaded fucks (sorry Panko). Nevertheless, on that cold night in the ...

nonsun featured

We always enjoy finding cool new sound-sculptors out in the cyber world, especially when we can use this blog forum to turn other people on to some under-the-radar artists.  We love it even more when those artists’ musical ventures make progress beyond their own self-run webpages. Earlier this year, we featured Ukrainian drone-doomers Nonsun as they crept out of utter darkness with their ...

Tokyo's Melt-Banana has been airing their newfound status as a two-piece for the first time in North America for about a week now with about three more weeks to go. It's been a tumultuous term for vocalist Yasuko "Yako" Onuki and guitarist Ichiro Agata that's seen them embrace life as a duo (and almost break up in the process), work the success of their Melt-Banana Lite alter ego into their lives ...

Ihsahn5179-Bjorn Tore Moen compressed

Ihsahn--a man who needs no introduction around these parts--has certainly not been bereft of musical ideas lately. He dropped his fifth solo album (coming a mere 16 months after its predecessor) earlier this week and is already talking about its follow-up. To celebrate the release of Das Seelenbrechen, which Adrien Begrand described in our latest issue as a "surprising and strangely satisfying ...
