** Hall of Famers Emperor are celebrating the 20th anniversary of black metal classic, In the Nightside Eclipse. As part of our journalistic duties, we couldn't pass up a chance to talk to icon/good guy Ihsahn about two decades of black fucking metal and why this time Emperor are taking the stage with them to the grave. What prompted you to re-start Emperor this time? Sure, In the Nightside ...

Throw Me a Frickin’ Label Hack (NOISE Edition II): Christopher S. Feltner

Me3

It’s been a good month for celebrating the noisier side of the extremely extreme.  All good things must end… though it’s hard to believe that we won’t be revisiting gritty, shadowy, unfettered sound in the future, if only here on the Deciblog. To round out the month of noise, we spoke to Virginia-based Christopher S. Feltner about his own journey through recordings and performance.  ...

Raw Power is Coming to America Again! Why So Glum Chum?

By: kevin.stewart-panko Posted in: featured, interviews, tours On: Thursday, July 24th, 2014

raw power

In addition to holding the illustrious (or dubious) honour of being one of my personal favourite bands of all time, Italy’s Raw Power is undoubtedly one of the most enduring and consistent hardcore punk bands to emerge from the world of hardcore punk. They formed in 1981 (with roots going back to the late 70s), have eleven awesome full-lengths comprising their extensive discography (yes, even ...

Tombs’ Mike Hill: Hot Coffee Machine

By: mr ed Posted in: exclusive, featured, interviews On: Thursday, July 24th, 2014

Hill 2

Because Tombs frontman Mike Hill loves work and HATES sleep, he recently started his own company, Savage Gold Coffee, in an effort to completely eradicate the latter from everyone’s life. Their inaugural brew, Savage Gold Prime, is available for order here now. While presumably starin’ at the walls, Hill gave us the scoop. I’m guessing you are a daily coffee drinker, correct? Mike ...

Misery Index is no stranger to these playlists. In fact, we were in the midst of winter 2013 when bassist/vocalist Jason Netherton regaled us with "bleak tunes that recall those snowbound blizzards from yesteryear." This time around, guitarist Mark Kloeppel went in a totally different direction to get you in the know about "hard" jams. We'll let him take things from here: "'Hard' is a special ...

darkfortress_blackmetal_decibel_2014

** Germany's Dark Fortress have plied black metal's murky, obsidian-colored waters for the better part of 20 years. In that time, they've crafted seven full-length, all of which have gone on to acclaim and recognition. Unlike most bands, Dark Fortress haven't played it easy across their varied discography. They've experimented, tried new ways to mold the dark into their own visage, and have, ...

deciblog - gillis live

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 ...

GOATWHORE_MainGroup1_byPeterBeste-e1401379840924 cropped

For the past decade or so, Goatwhore has been one band that you can count on to put out quality release after quality release. The quartet's latest LP is yet another um, merciless, entry in its oeuvre. So to celebrate both the recent release of Constricting Rage of the Merciless and the start of the NOLA natives' run alongside Morbid Angel, Dying Fetus and others on this year's Summer Slaughter ...

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 ...

Mutilation Rites Full Album Stream: Harbinger

By: Dan Lake Posted in: featured, interviews, listen On: Monday, July 14th, 2014

MRites

My ears are ringing like mad. Last night at the Metro Gallery in Baltimore, I caught Mutilation Rites play a ripping set that could be called loud in the same understated way that a Boeing 747 landing on your face could be called loud.  Fuck.  Ing.  Loud.  The performance was enveloping, engulfing, overwhelming, and it was played in front of a red-lit curtain that gave the whole stage a ...
