Utah’s Gravecode Nebula Chill In The Dark With “The Frozen Sun”

GN featured

About six months ago, a Salt Lake City, UT band called Gravecode Nebula heaved out its first album, Sempiternal Void, despite the fact that the band has been playing together in some form since 2006.  Fellow Salt Lake slowniks and Decibel faves SubRosa have mentioned GN a couple times when discussing local bands they enjoy, but until now, the Deciblog hasn’t heard Gravecode’s story from the ...

Hey Everyone, Gather ‘Round for KSP’s Over-Intellectualisation of Impaled Nazarene

deciblog - impnaz fire

Admittedly, I haven’t been an obsessive listener of Impaled Nazarene since their formation back in 1990 in the shadowy flanks of Finland’s goat brothels. However, the 2000s have had me come around to the realms of fan-dom and once they started making regular rotation at the ol' homestead, I noticed something on each of their last few albums. Now, before I ramble on, please remember that whole ...

Florida may not always have the most sterling reputation, but it's produced a slew of the bands that we cover and love. For starters, consider Atheist, Hate Eternal and many Morrisound alumni. As Jason Heller detailed in our latest issue, Floor--another Sunshine State spawn--returns next week with its first new record since 2004's Dove (which was really recorded in 1994, so let's go with 2002's ...

STREAMING: Aurvandil’s “Thrones”

By: Jeff Treppel Posted in: exclusive, featured, listen On: Tuesday, April 22nd, 2014

Aurvandil play sick folk-influenced black metal. You can listen to our debut of their second screed to the darkness below, and in the meantime, here's the man himself to explain what's going on. What's your writing process like? There are a lot of intricate layers going on in the music and that must be complicated to compose. AURVANDIL is rather simple, 4/4 riff-based music with more or ...

Noisem and Occultist release split covers 7″ on A389 Recordings

Record Store Day (RSD) is tomorrow, April 19th. Record Store Day was created to celebrate and extract cash from habitual brick and mortar record store junkies (hey, Decibel are record store junkies). But the best thing about RSD is that labels, large and small, produce cool one-offs for collectors (nay, junkies) to stash, drool on, or, let's be honest, eBay. One such label is Baltimore-based ...

Darken Your April With Decembre Noir

DECEMBRE_NOIR_bandpic_WWW

Finally, it's here!  I'm referring to the one weekend every year when even the brightest eyed, bushiest tailed Christian joins our cult of death for 48 hours and worships the treachery of friends, agonizing torture and public humiliation, and the brutal suffocation of a (reportedly) innocent life, just before we all pay lip service to the pagan feast day honoring the Anglo-Saxon goddess of the ...

It’s About Time: Playing Enemy’s I Was Your City Issued on Vinyl

deciblog - shitty city live

This bit of news may be a week or two old, but considering the connection to the Decibel family and that this album is one of the unsung, unheralded, un-everything albums of the 2000's that you probably don't own but should, we felt it merited some more mention. Here are a few informational snippets from the official Earsplit PR press release: "Newly-launched, Detroit-based Corpse Flower ...

TRACK PREMIERE: Bludded Head’s “Rotten Demon Shit”

By: Jeff Treppel Posted in: exclusive, featured, listen On: Tuesday, April 15th, 2014

As fun as it is to cover everything Carcass and At the Gates are up to, occasionally it's nice to shine a light on a truly underground band. Dallas's Bludded Head definitely fall into that category, scooping out unpleasant sludge with a tendency towards the minimalist. Their misery comes from a real place, too – singer/guitarist Nevada Hill has been battling cancer and the ravages of ...

STREAMING: Frameworks “Familiar Haze”

frameworks_progressivemetal_decibel_2014

Gainesville, Florida's Frameworks aren't on your radar. If you're into stuff like Slint and Sincebyman, well, they should be on your radar. Self-described--we think they're trying to be funny--as "Lounge Screamo" or "Tropical Punk", Frameworks recalls a time when playing hardcore with a bit of gloom in it wasn't cool or respected. You had to be macho/strongman like all the bridge 'n' tunnel shit ...
