VIDEO PREMIERE: Loudblast’s “Ascending Straight In Circles”

By: zach.smith Posted in: featured, listen, videos On: Thursday, May 1st, 2014

So far as we can tell, Loudblast has never brought its live show to the good ol' USA despite nearly three decades of extremely extreme enterprises (or if they have, it's been a long, long time). Fortunately, the French quartet's video for "Ascending Straight In Circles"--which we're pleased to premiere--provides a pretty good idea of what those of us in the New World are missing out on. The ...

STREAMING: Cradle of Filth’s “The Raping Of Faith”

It might seem like Cradle Of Filth has been around forever because, well, they have. But even the black metal superstars had their formative period. One of the documents of that time was Total Fucking Darkness, COF's third demo. Decibel got the first sneak peak of this old but new material, the track "The Raping Of Faith." The demos were restored by Dani Filth and former guitarist Paul Ryan ...

LIFE TO FALSE METAL: Watter’s “Small Business”

Occasionally, it's nice to listen to things that can't be described as "brutal" or "crushing." On the flipside, who the fuck wants to listen to Modest Mouse? That's why it's nice to have bands like Watter as palate cleansers. I've had This World on my stereo every night this past week as I went to bed, its atmospheric post/Krautrock cloud banks perfect to drift into dreamland on. Despite ...

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

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”

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 ...

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 ...
