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”

By: Chris D. Posted in: featured, listen On: Monday, February 24th, 2014

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 ...

gridlink_grindcore2_decibel_2014

Decibel and Handshake, Inc. are teaming up to give away TWO (2) copies of Gridlink's new album Longhena. Why is that so cool? They're test presses. The kind the label and band get from the pressing plant to spot check for errors and other vinyl-related anomalies. So, test presses, in general, are rare birds. The collective of Decibel and Handshake, Inc. are giving you the chance to win a copy. ...

Nope that's not some new super-group featuring Powermad guitarist, Todd Haug, pictured above. OK, yes that's Haug front and center, but this brootal crew is actually a confab of brewers and an artist who have come together to create a brand new beer called BLAKKR. From left to right we have Michael Berglund, Surly artist-in-residence; Erik Ogershok, head brewer at Real Ale Brewing; Haug, head ...

Michael Klassen from Culted on long-distance relationships and reaching for a state of grace in extreme music

By: jonathan.horsley Posted in: featured, interviews On: Friday, February 21st, 2014

Culted

Michael Klassen has never met Daniel Jansson. OK, you're thinking, why should he? But given that Jansson is the singer in his band, it is kind of weird. Well, unconventional certainly. Klassen plays guitar, bass and provides other instrumentation in Culted, working out of Winnipeg, Canada, with Kevin Stevenson (Drums), Matthew Freisson (guitar/bass/other) and Erik Larsen (modular synths/other) to ...

Hell Goes to America: Hellbenders Interviewed

deciblog - hellbennett

I discovered Brazil's Hellbenders the old fashioned way: their U.S. publicist pointed me in their direction. However, instead of doing what I normally do and ignoring the histrionic pitch (which, after having the band described as Brazil's answer to Kyuss/High on Fire/stoner/desert rock, would have been the logical thing to do), I bit. And man, I'm glad I did! This quartet from Goiania is indeed ...

02-Junius-Alysse_Gafkjen2

Last week, Junius helped celebrate the upcoming release of its excellent new EP, Days of the Fallen Sun, by having half of the band--namely, frontman/guitarist Joseph E. Martinez and bassist Joel Munguia--tell us about eight records that they were listening to back when things started in 2004. Now that everyone has (hopefully) had a chance to get his or her grubby hands on the record, guitarist ...
