"Well, from the get go, we wanted to write a straightforward heavy record from start to finish," says guitarist Steven Funderburk in a recent interview with No Clean Singing. "We had nothing but heavy grooving in mind. It just made sense to have a title that not only fit with the lyrical content, but with the musical aspect of the record. We wanted to get straight to the point with the title, ...

Throw Me a Frickin’ Label Hack: Indiana’s Lysura

Prefered Promo

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 ...

Any time we hear that Lord Worm is back it's like the return of the coolest substitute teacher at your school; the shop class alternate who lets the kids have at it with the broken bandsaw. Worm is a legendary death metal vocalist, a Hall Of Fame inductee with Cryptopsy and one of the most gifted metal lyricists working today. And, his new song with Rage Nucleaire has a lot of ...

A Gruesome Salute to Death

Hearing about Exhumed's Matt Harvey joining forces with ex-Malevolent Creation drummer Gus Rio, Possessed guitarist Daniel Gonzalez and Derketa bassist Robin Mazen to form Gruesome, a band designed to be "basically a Death tribute band - as the County Medical Examiners are to Carcass, this pretty much is to Death" got me pretty excited. I must admit a mild tinge of disappointment when it was ...

Nick Cordle may no longer be the newest member of Arch Enemy, but he's still a relative newbie compared to Michael Amott, Daniel Erlandsson and Sharlee D'Angelo. While the band's latest record, War Eternal, will mark his first Arch Enemy recording, the guitarist (that's him on the bottom right) started touring with the quintet in 2012. So to celebrate the release of the group's tenth ...

TRACK PREMIERE: Moab’s “Whittled Away”

Scion A/V have tossed lots of free singles, EP's, splits, compilations, and socks to the ravening metal hordes, but it's rare that a band releases an entire album through that imprint. Los Angeles-based heavy rock trio Moab are doing just that. Their latest nine-song opus of fuzz and feedback, Billow, will be released later this month as a free download on the Scion A/V website, but we have your ...

STREAMING: Publicist UK “Never Gone To School”

What happens when members of Revocation, Municipal Waste, Goes Cube and Freshkills get in a digital room together, run through a few ideas over craft beer (presumably picked and curated by none other than Dave Witte), realize they have less time than they ever had before but decide to form a new music project? That would be Publicist UK. Publicist UK are intense, heavy, and are tangentally ...

Dweller In The Valley New Release: Younger Dryas

Semi-rural, semi-suburban Maryland is hardly an obvious spawning ground for gritty black metal.  With Washington D.C. and Baltimore hogging all the attention, and Frederick area bars almost exclusively hosting good-time cover bands of dubious quality, the area’s heavy music scene is pretty damn subdued. Dweller in the Valley drummer/vocalist Dane Olds is a current Frederick, MD resident, ...

It's called Dog Years and you can listen to the whole damn thing below while you read guitarist/vocalist Sean Sabatini discuss the record's nuts 'n' bolts below that. You're welcome.
