By: Dan Lake Posted in: featured, interviews, listen On: Friday, June 13th, 2014

Because every day another band records another song.  Because 83% of those songs are unlistenable and you can’t be bothered to sift through the dreck.  Because metal is about not giving a shit and waking your own personal storm.  Because music is universal, expression is boundless, and even indie labels (whatever that means these days) don’t know everything, Decibel brings you Throw Me a ...

So, this band from Vancouver called Expain (formerly known as The Almighty Excruciating Pain), who are as indebted to thrash as they are to quick-change jazz, Weired Al Yankovic's discography and dusty recordings of the old Doctor Demento radio show, has a new album coming out. It's self-released (well, sort of, as it was aided in part by a crowdfunding campaign), called Just the Tip and if you, ...

Decibrity Playlist: The Atlas Moth

The Atlas Moth's new record is one of my favorites so far this year. But, as you've probably heard by now, the artwork and packaging--two things that some bands still care about--is something to admire in and of itself. So vocalist/guitarist Stavros Giannopoulos was kind enough to tell us about some other albums whose covers and packaging he backs. You can also glean some pretty insightful and ...

Jonesing for some blackout-dark, dynamic-as-fuck, gloriously oppressive, progressive-yet-unabashedly-brutal hardcore reminiscent of Blacklisted and early American Nightmare? What a coincidence! We've got an exclusive track off the straight-up awesome upcoming full-length debut from soon-to-be scene levelers My Fictions streaming below. "Stranger Songs is an LP we've been working on for ...

Xibalba-Promo

Sometimes, it's not enough to have your recommended daily dose of righteous anger delivered by just one band. Sometimes, you need to split the rage. Xibalba and Suburban Scum are happy (angry?) to oblige. On their side of things, Xibalba bring the sludge. On the flipside, Suburban Scum deliver some thrashing hardcore. We have both sides for you a few days before the release date. Get ready ...

"Well, from the get go, we wanted to write a straightforward heavy record from start to finish," says guitarist Steven Funderburk in a recent interview with No Clean Singing. "We had nothing but heavy grooving in mind. It just made sense to have a title that not only fit with the lyrical content, but with the musical aspect of the record. We wanted to get straight to the point with the title, ...

Any time we hear that Lord Worm is back it's like the return of the coolest substitute teacher at your school; the shop class alternate who lets the kids have at it with the broken bandsaw. Worm is a legendary death metal vocalist, a Hall Of Fame inductee with Cryptopsy and one of the most gifted metal lyricists working today. And, his new song with Rage Nucleaire has a lot of ...
