Get Altered

By: Shawn Macomber Posted in: featured, listen On: Tuesday, February 18th, 2014


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”

By: Chris D. Posted in: featured, listen, uncategorized On: Tuesday, February 18th, 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 ...

TRACK PREMIERE: Prizehog’s “Shed”

By: Jeff Treppel Posted in: exclusive, featured, listen On: Tuesday, February 18th, 2014

PRIZEHOG2_c2014JamesRexroad 2

Prizehog's fourth album is called Re-Unvent the Whool. That should give you an idea of just how weird these weirdos are. They come from Portland, because of course. Disconnected sludge floating in an abyss of fuzz, "Shed" is a pretty good example of what you're going to get when you contaminate your turntable with the record. There are probably songs in here somewhere, but it requires digging ...

Full Album Stream: Nebelung’s Palingenesis

By: Dan Lake Posted in: featured, interviews, listen On: Monday, February 17th, 2014

Nebelung, Oktober2013

If you don't live along the east coast of the United States, then maybe you're having a chest-beating trad metal day, or a beat-on-your-desk black/thrash day, or even a middle-finger-hoisting death metal day.  But if you were in the path of the snow storm that dumped a few lead-heavy white blankets up and down the Eastern Seaboard, then you probably spent a couple days this weekend ...

STREAMING: Dodsferd covers The Misfits

Check it out below and learn more about the release at Moribund. The album is due March ...

Decibrity Playlist: Junius (Part 1)

By: zach.smith Posted in: featured, interviews, listen, lists On: Thursday, February 13th, 2014


A few weeks ago, we premiered a track from Junius's excellent new EP, Days of the Fallen Sun. This year will not only see the release of new tunes from the quartet (in just a few days, no less), but it also marks a celebratory occasion that typically calls for diamond jewelry. Our budget here at the Deciblog isn't quite that extravagant, so instead we thought we'd let the band take over our ...

STREAMING: Mystifier “Wicca”

By: jonathan.horsley Posted in: featured, listen On: Monday, February 10th, 2014


It’s time to go back, folks. It’s time to wade way, way back into the primordial ooze and sift out a hallowed blast from the past in this exclusive album stream of GreyHaze Records’ reissue of Mystifier’s Wicca. The Brazilian black metal legends released Wicca in 1992, and although it has been rereleased a handful of times since, it has been out of print for while. Most of you will be ...

STREAMING: Vampire “Under the Grudge”

By: Chris D. Posted in: featured, listen On: Monday, February 10th, 2014


With pseudonyms like Hand of Doom, Black String and Command, Sweden's Vampire immediately evoke early '80s heavy metal and early mid-'90s black metal. A non-coincidence, really. Vampire's eponymous debut is the nexus of heavy metal and black metal, where Destruction and Motörhead meets Unanimated and Bewitched. Vampire, however, make the cross-generational/genre melange unique, menacing in march ...

TRACK PREMIERE: Entartung’s “Blasphemaverit in Spiritum Sanctum”

By: Jeff Treppel Posted in: exclusive, featured, listen On: Friday, February 7th, 2014

Entartung_Bandpicture 2

You know you're in for some serious black metal destruction when the waveform is a solid block. Entartung have an unpronounceable name and a penchant for German efficiency, one that they put towards killing your eardrums. They've built a pretty impressive temple of evil in Peccata Mortalia, their second album. Most of you are snowed in, and there's nothing better for a dark, snowy day than some ...

Stream New Song from Woccon’s New Album, Solace in Decay

By: Dan Lake Posted in: featured, listen On: Friday, February 7th, 2014


Athens, GA heavy hitters Woccon are relative newcomers to the metal scene, but they've already made an impressive splash with the material they've recorded thus far.  Existing at some perfectly logical intersection of prog-friendly melodicism and aggressive doom, Woccon released an EP last year - The Wither Fields - that perked up our ears and gave us seven good reasons to keep listening. ...
