vitus

Name: Saint Vitus Category: Venue Location: Brooklyn, NY Behind an unmarked black door on Manhattan Ave in Greenpoint lies America’s kvltest watering hole. “None More Black” doesn’t even begin to describe the interior of Saint Vitus; everything from the walls to the toilet seats are a bleak absence of light, the only respite being the red twinkle of small candles smeared around ...

This Record Rules: Extreme Beer Version

Motörhead_Beer_Drinkers

Sorry for the tease, but this post isn't exactly about Motorhead's Beer Drinkers & Hell Raisers compilation. Bear with us, though, because it does have some relevance to the topic at hand. You may or may not remember a regular part of the Deciblog rotation a couple years ago was a little thing we called "This Record Rules." It allowed us writers to spout off about an album that was blowing our ...

Before we get to all the details of this amazing giveaway—a free guitar!—from the generous folks at Roadrunner Records and Epiphone, we want to wish Machine Head mainman Robb Flynn a very speedy recovery from his recent hernia surgery. We know he's anxious to get back out on the road and resume the tour with Dethklok, All That Remains and Black Dahlia Murder once he's back on his feet. In ...

Since Brooklyn trio Flourishing is releasing the digital version of its latest 3-song EP, Intersubjectivity, via The Path Less Traveled today we figured it would be a good opportunity to give some stuff away to mark the occasion. And by "some stuff," we mean the band's entire digital discography, plus a killer T-shirt. Musically the lucky giveaway winner will receive: A Momentary Sense of ...

STREAMING: Troubled Horse: “Another Man’s Name”

We offer this as more of a geographic reference than a musical one, but if you're curious about the origins of Troubled Horse, you need look no further than the the same Swedish town, Orebro, that spawned both Graveyard and Witchcraft, who coincidentally have new albums just out or on the way. The Witchcraft connection actually is even a little more pertinent as Troubled Horse features three ...

Sometimes in the face of overwhelming shittiness, we need a little something to distract us. We suspect that a pretty large number of our brethren (and sistren, or whatever...) are currently without the ability to log onto the Interhole at the moment thanks to Sandy but for those who are, here's something that is completely not about reality. This clip comes to us courtesy of Vienna, VA, ...

Video Gold From Metal’s Early Years

Metallica were wise to wait several years before making their first promotional music video. Having experienced it first hand—waiting patiently for a metal video to pop up so we could capture it on our VHS recorder—we can attest to the fact that the dawn of music videos in the early '80s was the worst. Especially the metal ones, which were frequently done on indie-label budgets and generally ...

For the majority of the nearly 50,000 people who bought their tickets to one or more of the Great American Beer Festival sessions (which took place in Denver last weekend) when they went on sale last summer, the opportunity to attend this massive beer tasting event is probably the pinnacle of their craft beer-drinking year. After all, there are approximately 2,700 brews to sample from every ...

For the record, the "Exclusive" up in the title of this blog post actually means something.

The video embedded below features almost four ...

CANFEST 2012: Taking Canned Beer Back From The Hipsters

The craft beer world is still trying to undo the damage done by shitty pale American lagers to canned beer's reputation. It's a sad fact that most craft beer drinkers think that bottled beer is "better" than canned beer, when the exact opposite is actually the case. If we all agree that craft beer is most importantly about, well, the beer, then cans win hands-down. Here's why: they take care of ...
