After dropping the best album of its career earlier this month with From All Purity, the dudes in Indian are in the midst of (hopefully) enjoying some time off before hitting the road at the end of March. Given that guitarist/vocalist Will Lindsay is also probably not all that enthused about stepping out into the frigid Chicago winter all that often (if you've perused our latest issue, you'd ...

Continuing the trend of posting streams from bands whose names I can't pronounce, this week we have a full album stream from Fluisteraars. Apparently it means "the whisperers" in whatever language they speak in the Netherlands. Not a hell of a lot of whispering going on to these ears, but there are definitely some nuances. Some of Immortal's epic black 'n' roll groove, some of Agalloch's ...

Last month Canadian epic/progressive metallers Scythia made a viral digital splash with the absurdist Pogues-meets-Dream-Theater-meets-drunken-hobbits video for the rousing anthem "Bear Claw Tavern" off the upcoming album ...Of Conquest, and now the band reveals another exclusive jam here this morning. "This track is a 'one-of-a-kind track' on the record," guitarist/vocalist Dave Khan tells ...

Iron Hand are a crusty d-beat/hardcore band from New Haven, CT, and, courtesy of Safety Meeting Records you can stream their awesome debut 12-inch, Injected Fear right here, right now. Injected Fear is a rugged and lean 18 minutes of the sort of unpolished fury that’s probably best experienced live as it rattles around an all-dayer in some derelict basement or dive bar. Taking cues from the ...

Stream Full EP by Sisters of… (AKA Don’t Judge a Band By Its…)

As a general rule, we would suggest you not listen to instrumental “post” metal.  It certainly has its occasional charms and does an admirable job drawing the aurally cautious into the integrity-crushing arms of extreme metal.  Beyond the realm of intellectual curiosity and compositional hedonism, however, this gravity well of musical talent too often grows maudlin, blindly ...

Those of you who pay rapt attention to the Throw Me a Frickin' Bone column might already have taken note of Vaporizer and the kind words I've bestowed upon their intense irascibility and how I gave their EP a nod as one of the top self-releases of last year. If you haven't already checked them out, or at least intend to, please do so - I even said "please" - as they are fully deserving of the ...

I don't usually premiere tracks on here, but when I do, there are few bands I'd rather talk about than Junius. After spoiling us with excellent full-lengths in 2009 and 2011, these Massholes are finally returning with a collection of new recordings next month after a nearly two-and-a-half year break. Given that a few weeks still remain before you'll be able to hear the Days of the Fallen Sun EP ...

STREAMING: Hark “Palendromeda”

By: Chris D. Posted in: featured, listen On: Wednesday, January 22nd, 2014

hark_coverart_decibel_2014

What does the word "Hark" mean? It means to "pay attention to". Who said Decibel never educates? Truth be told, whenever I hear the word "Hark" I immediately think of the song, "Hark! The Herald Angels Sing". But there might be some deep-seated issues with church choir with that one. For the band Hark, the one from Wales, the one emerging from the ashes of cult heroes Taint, well, the name is ...
