If you've been with us for a while, you surely remember our January 2008 issue, in which we not only bestowed Album of the Year honors on Pig Destroyer's Phantom Limb, but talked to vocalist J.R. Hayes at length about major influence David Lynch. "With [Lynch], it's like you're watching paintings that move," Hayes said at the time. "He could do a five-hour movie with no narrative and I'd be into ...

In simplistic terms, I guess one would/could say USA Out of Vietnam is a space rock band. Actually, the Montreal outfit is a genre-defying entity that incorporates elements of everything from psychedelia, shoegaze and black metal to doom, noise rock and Angelo Badalamenti-sounding soundtrack stuff. The band has a new record out on New Damage called Crashing Diseases and Incurable Airplanes which ...

Howard Stern Show regular, Charred Walls of the Damned drummer, Halloween enthusiast, and Decibel contributor Richard Christy sure does get around. A few months ago I saw him sit in with Stryper for "Sing Along Song" at Terminal 5 in New York City -- clad in a sweet vintage To Hell With the Devil shirt, no less -- and now comes video of the man jamming with Kirk Hammett and Robert Trujillo of ...

Never thought I’d get to meet the devil Never thought I'd meet him face to face Heard he always worked alone, that he seldom wrote or used a phone So I walked right up to meet him at his place Two years before unleashing Carrie on the world in 1976, Brian DePalma concocted the profoundly weird, unabashedly flamboyant horror-flick-meets-rock-opera romp Phantom of the Paradise -- a ...

This week brought the news that a Fight Club sequel (in comic book form) is forthcoming. We aren't sure if this will work out for the best but it seemed like an ideal time to revisit a book and movie that inspired many. Mike Hill of Tombs has embraced the book's underlying ideal: that you need to create something worth living outside of consumer culture. Hill is certainly doing that: he is ...

A couple months ago, I introduced you to Winnipeg death metal outfit Psychotic Gardening here. In the search for additional and interesting content for this here spot on this here blog, I was altered to the fact that vocalist Chris "Gillishammer" Gillis' dayjob was as a gravedigger! As soon as I heard that, I immediately did the most logical thing and rustled up a bunch of email questions to ...

To paraphrase the demon that once mauled Albert Brooks in his own car on the side of a darkened road back in '83: Hey, d'ya you want to hear something really scary? Yeah? You sure? Alright, then, Fangoria Musick -- the exquisitely eclectic, ceaselessly unsettling new digital download music label from the legendary flagship magazine of dark cinema and culture -- is here to whisper (and ...

One of the most distinct memories I have pertaining to Milwaukee black metal outfit Shroud of Despondency is as follows: the scene was February 2011, Clearwater Beach, Florida. My wife, kid and I were in the midst of our annual pilgrimage down south in order to escape the depressing, bone-chilling cold of another southern Ontario winter and because metal and deadlines never stop, even when ...
