WinterfyllethEsterSegarra_6827c

Last week, we brought you the first part of Chris Naughton's landscape themed playlist. While his first six picks covered some well traveled territory--Drudkh, Bathory and Ulver to name a few--the rest dive a little deeper underground. According to Winterfylleth's guitarist/vocalist, however, all "capture the very essence of their environment and their history through the music they make and the ...

Back in the day there were shiny things called songs. Albums were filled with good songs rather than two or three wankfests. Now, in the hands of the right band long songs can be potent (see: Sleep and YOB). But heavy songs that are infectious with less real estate are also a very good thing. One band doing songs right is The Proselyte from Cambridge, who mix pop with Decibel approved ...

New Zealand trio Jakob have a strong release history behind them, but they have been largely absent over the past several years due to injuries that have kept them from playing and recording.  All that is done now, and the band unveils the video for "Blind Them With Science", the lead-off track from their forthcoming Mylene Sheath release Sines (October 17 in New Zealand and Australia, October ...

So there's a lot of depressing music out there, much of which we cover in this magazine, but very little of it was made by someone who had stage IV melanoma. Nevada Hill did, and along with Ryan Williams, John Teague, and David Saylor, created some pretty fucked up Harvey Milk-style noise rock inspired by his harrowing experiences. Bludded Head's latest EP, Reign in Bludd (nifty title, maybe ...

Cemetery picnickers Encoffination rise again next month with their third full-length album, called III - Hear Me, O' Death (Sing Thou Wretched Choirs).  Says vocalist/string-scather Ghoat of the forthcoming set of grueling, buzzing doom:  "The concept of this record is the glorification of death: an offering to the embodiment of death's creation, and to sing the wretched hymns of death's ...

Instead of rambling on about how great the new Winterfylleth album is and coming up with some clever way to introduce what Chris Naughton decided to cover in his playlist (spoiler alert: it's one of my favorites), we'll just let the guitarist/vocalist handle the intro himself: "Considering topics that would make for an interesting playlist relating to Winterfylleth led me down thought ...

STREAMING: Nightbringer “Ego Dominus Tuus” + Naas Alcameth (Nightbringer) interviewed

By: Chris D. Posted in: featured, interviews, listen On: Monday, September 22nd, 2014

nightbringer_blackmetal_decibel_2014

** U.S. black metallers Nightbringer are an entity unto themselves. The Colorado-based trio make music unlike any other. The group's new album, Ego Dominus Tuus, is a haunting reality check of the darkness that is around us and the darkness that consumes us. Claustrophobic, uncompromisingly intense, and yet very musical (think Classical), Ego Dominus Tuus is the answer to brow-beater, ...

** Mysticum have mystified black metal purists for decades. The Norwegians' debut album, In the Streams of Inferno, split black metal into tiny shards, its fans wondering what the fuck in its wake. Originally slated to be released on Euronymous' Deathlike Silence Productions, the ground-breaking, genre-defying release found a home on American black metal label, Full Moon Productions. Even today, ...

New Jersey-based brazen black metallers Abazagorath have sprinkled the last six or seven years with splits and an EP, but October 7th of this year will see the release of their first album in ten years.  What does the band have in store for you on their nearly-dawned The Satanic Verses?  How do you feel about losing limbs, face flesh and copious amounts of blood from your neck?  Abazagorath ...

While the news has had time to sink in with the passing of time, it was a big ol' shocker when Witch Mountain vocalist Uta Plotkin announced she was stepping away from her post after five years of fronting the Portland doom heroes. According to drummer Nathan Carson, he and the other members [guitarist Rob Wrong and bassist Charles "Charles Dingus" Thomas] received the disheartening news via ...
