Melt Banana pc Resource Graphics

Melt-Banana's last record Fetch earned a place in our top 10 of 2013. Since Kevin Stewart-Panko already asked the now duo of vocalist Yasuko "Yako" Onuki and guitarist Ichiro Agata nearly every question imaginable back in October (most importantly about their Geocities website), we weren't left with much ground that hadn't already been covered. Onuki and Agata's tunes may not be as popular in ...

TRACK PREMIERE: Vices’ “Wasteland”

By: Jeff Treppel Posted in: exclusive, featured, listen On: Tuesday, February 25th, 2014

VICES 2

Hey, finally a band name AND song title combo that describes my managing editor's life. Vices play hardcore with a blues rock edge, reminiscent of Maylene and the Sons of Disaster before they started to suck. "Wasteland" will make you want to go smash some liquor bottles down by the creek real good. Their debut LP, New Breed, was mixed and mastered by Arthur Rizk (Power Trip). It doesn't come out ...

This morning we're streaming an exclusive new earthy, driving rocker from Seattle's self-described "caveman goth" heroes Constant Lovers. It is off the band's upcoming sophomore effort, a swaggering, infectious n' hearty slab dubbed Experience Feelings and, yes, the jam somehow manages to match the power of these accompanying photographs. Pre-order here. Check out another track from the ...

STREAMING: Morbus Chron “The Perennial Link”

morbuschron_deathmetal_decibel_2014

Last year Tribulation blew minds with The Formulas of Death. This year, fellow Swedes Morbus Chron are all grown up---the average age is 27.5---from 2011's Sleepers in the Rift effort. By aging a few years, refining their craft, and spreading respective wings, the Stockholmites have created a record so immersive, so penetrating, and so tuned into the things that made early '90s death metal ...

Decibel and Handshake, Inc. are teaming up to give away TWO (2) copies of Gridlink's new album Longhena. Why is that so cool? They're test presses. The kind the label and band get from the pressing plant to spot check for errors and other vinyl-related anomalies. So, test presses, in general, are rare birds. The collective of Decibel and Handshake, Inc. are giving you the chance to win a copy. ...

02-Junius-Alysse_Gafkjen2

Last week, Junius helped celebrate the upcoming release of its excellent new EP, Days of the Fallen Sun, by having half of the band--namely, frontman/guitarist Joseph E. Martinez and bassist Joel Munguia--tell us about eight records that they were listening to back when things started in 2004. Now that everyone has (hopefully) had a chance to get his or her grubby hands on the record, guitarist ...

Fatality’s Wintour Diary

By: justin.m.norton Posted in: diary, featured, listen, tours, videos On: Wednesday, February 19th, 2014

unnamed

Last summer, the young bucks in Fatality wrote a cogent piece for the Deciblog on how you can successfully crowdfund a project without pissing off fans. As a result, we got to know bassist Adam Zed pretty well and found him to be a likeable and hilarious chap. Then, he approached the Deciblog about doing a tour diary. We weren't sold. With a few exceptions, tour diaries are boring and devoid ...

We're exactly one month out from the release of Immortal, the sicker-than-a-resurrected-centurion-werewolf debut blaster from Sacramento death metallers Alterbeast, and to whet your appetite the band has graciously sent over an exclusive stream of a sonic power-up called "Vile Remnants." Check the track out below, pre-order the record here, and, for the youngsters, check out what the ...

STREAMING: Mayhem “Psywar”

mayhem_blackmetal_decibel_2014

The True Mayhem. Ground zero for Norwegian black metal. Since 1984, the Oslo-based outfit has made waves. Though it would take a good number of years—about three, actually—before Deathcrush hit posers hard, the group’s coup de grace was posthumous debut album, De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas. With Euronymous dead and the Norwegian scene reeling from heavy media pressure, Mayhem didn’t ...
