STREAMING: Omnizide “Death Metal Holocaust”

By: jonathan.horsley Posted in: featured, listen On: Monday, February 3rd, 2014

OMNIZIDE RESIZED

Omnizide. What a name. Kinda makes you think of a market-leading bug spray. But their sound makes you think of, ooh, kinda old-school Darkthrone, and falls somewhere between the nexus of death metal and physically imposing Swedish black metal, bands such as Naglfar and Watain . . . And Craft. Definitely there's some Craft. There's no Craftian black 'n' roll to give it away—no roll ...

I am not nearly the wordsmith that John Darnielle is, so I will borrow a quote from a post he wrote about the band in question a few years back on his sadly defunct Last Plane to Jakarta blog: INTERLOCUTOR: My grandmother has asked for an excellent new death metal album for her birthday. I tried to explain to her that my friends and I only really like black metal, because it's totally funny ...

Throw Me a Frickin’ Label Hack: Bulgaria’s Claymore

By: Dan Lake Posted in: featured, interviews, listen On: Friday, January 31st, 2014

claymore_01

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 ...

The fucking hassle and amount of fucking time I wasted just to put this stupid stream up wasn't worth it. San Francisco's Monuments Collapse and Seattle's Breag Naofa have had a split release available since last month. It originally came out around the Christmas rush and was probably forgotten/ignored for that reason. Here, we present it for you and your perusal. However, let the record show ...

Decibrity Playlist: Indian

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 ...

STREAMING: Fluisteraars’ “Dromers”

By: Jeff Treppel Posted in: featured, listen On: Tuesday, January 28th, 2014

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 ...

Album Premiere: Iron Hand “Injected Fear”

By: jonathan.horsley Posted in: featured, listen On: Monday, January 27th, 2014

IronHandPress4

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 ...

You can pre-order it here. Morfin will be mother’s milk to all those old-school death metal connoisseurs who get their necks in a spin at the prospect of some ye olde, swamp-stomping Florida-style ...
