Will wonders never cease? Not long ago Billy Corgan outed himself as a Mercyful Fate fanboy able to correctly name the preeminent Black Sabbath record -- that's Sabbath Bloody Sabbath, kids -- and now the 90's alt-rock icon has formed his own pro-wrestling company -- Resistance Pro -- where he’ll serve as “creative director.” The promotion's first show is scheduled for November 25 in ...

Black Ink, Black Metal – The Art Of Heath Rave

Varg2

It was Heath Rave who asked Decibel during an interview, "When have tattoos and rock music not gone together?" We all know the answer, but we'd be willing to wager that they've never gone together this well. You're probably more familiar with Rave as the bloodfueld drummer from Wolvhammer.

“I Want Your Sex” = “Come to the Sabbath” Backmasked. Scientists Say So. Basically.

By: Shawn Macomber Posted in: defend your shitty taste, king fucking diamond, stupid crap On: Tuesday, February 1st, 2011

Last week LA Weekly used an article on "identity, music and sexual attraction" from the journal Psychology of Music as a jumping off point for a round-up of various congruous research under the header "Can Bad Taste in Music Ruin a Relationship?" The material is mostly pretty thin gruel. (Not to mention manifestly debunked by our Justify Your Shitty Taste feature...) "The kid who wants to ...

Slaying the Prophets

By: Shawn Macomber Posted in: king fucking diamond, listen On: Thursday, December 16th, 2010

In a strange bit of serendipity, I happened to finally get around to watching Behemoth’s excellent Evangelia Heretika DVD on the same day the New York Times ran a story headlined, “Poland, Bastion of Religion, Sees Rise in Secularism.” Thus, after being flabbergasted by a tour documentary wherein Catholic politicians collude with the police in an (unsuccessful) attempt to shut down a ...
